Houston, TX – Rita and Gary’s Downtown Engagements

I have to admit, when I first met Rita and Gary I lost track of time.  I was having so much fun hanging out with these two, hearing about their travels, their schooling, their Lindy Hop dances that I’m not really sure I talked about “business” at all!  Rita and Gary are absolutely magnetic!  From Rita’s radiant smile to Gary’s random but seriously impressive dance moves,  you just can’t help but enjoy every second you’re lucky enough to share with these two!!!

  We started off their session with a sweet picnic on Rice Campus!  Perfect start to a Tuesday!

When we first met, Gary asked me what photographers do during the day.  Well, now everyone knows – hang out with fun couples and drink champagne.  Its tough work, I know!!!!

I couldn’t stop laughing when Gary turned helping Rita up into quite the sophisticated dance number!  See, I told you they were always fun!!! ( :

After enjoying a nice morning picnic, we headed over to the Montrose area for some more solid ground.  Getting to watch them do some Lindy Hop moves was probably the high light of my week!  Gary is actually a part of the Houston Hepats, a performance group for the Houston Swing Dance Society.    You see!?!?!  Could these two be any cooler?!?!?

After my private performance, we headed to the library, a place where these two ambitious students spend a bit of their time.  Yes, these two do everything!!!

Rita and Gary, as you two seem to be able to do everything, would you pretty please fast forward time to October so we can celebrate your wedding now?!?! ( :

You both are so charismatic and so positive, so intelligent and yet so modest, you two are just so inspiring!  Thank you for taking time out of your packed schedules to share a morning with my camera and me!

Cheers to you both!!!!!
