The Woodlands, TX – Jill and Sam’s Wedding

One of the things I admire the most about Jill and Sam is that they’re not afraid to be themselves.  From the black and white dress, to the guitar necklace, to the reception party venue, to the New Orleans honeymoon, every step of the way I couldn’t help but think of how every detail was the perfect reflection of this rock n roll duo!

With Jill and Sam getting ready at the same location as each other and the ceremony, we were able to get photos of both of them preparing for their “I do”s.   Very glad we didn’t miss these hilarious guys getting ready!

Austin was a natural in front of the camera and as silly as can be…. like father like son ( ;

After the vests were buttoned and the boutineers were pinned it was time to practice walking (or skipping) down the isle!  Of course they nailed it!  Next on the list – wedding time!!

We gave Jill and Sam some time alone while the family and wedding party gathered themselves out front for group photos.  A groundskeeper happened to spot a small skull, which isn’t the prop for everyone, but it was seriously perfect for these newlyweds! ( :

Jill and Sam are probably the mosted loved Aunt and Uncle of all times.

I’m sure their playful attitudes have nothing to do with it…

With the sun starting to set we took just a few minutes for some photos of just Jill and Sam.  Not only does this allow the couple to soak up the fact that they’re now officially married, but it also makes for some incredibly beautiful photos!

Even Sam’s son Austin got up to say a few words.  For some reason that ended very quickly…gotta love the honesty of a kid (when its not your kiddos of course!)!

Jill and Sam, thank you two for allowing me to be a part of your wonderfully unique wedding.  From that first bloody mary we had together (and the next one….or two…or, well who was counting?!?!),  I knew you two were a very rare couple.  Your sense of humor and your laid-back attitudes made photographing your wedding a blast. Your love for each other made photographing this start of a new chapter of your lives together an honor.  Big hugs to you both!!!!
