Chateau Cocomar – Wedding Engagement Photos

Chateau Cocomar is a hidden gem of a wedding venue resembling a gorgeously ornate French Chateau in the north west side of Houston! I was thrilled to be able to take engagement photos at Chateau Cocomar to celebrate Lena & Gary as they prepare to get married in Houston later this year!  It was such a beautiful day and a wonderful engagement location in Houston, Texas – we didn’t even have to get on a plane!  These two were wonderful and you could see the joy and happiness they find in one another.  Congratulations Lena & Gary! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness and adventures together!     Now Booking 2018 and 2019 Texas and Destination weddings!  Email now for availability & investment information: Jessica@jessicafreyphotography.com www.JessicaFreyPhotography.com Location: Chateau Cocomar    Hair &Makeup:  Kaci Sanchez...

Bull Creek Austin Engagement Photos with puppies!

I am so thankful my job leads me to some pretty special friendships and two years ago, I worked a Valentine’s Day wedding at Camp Lucy (Thank you Ryann & James!!) and met an amazing coordinator named Ashley – we quickly hit it off, had lunch with my then 3 month old baby and pretty much met for tacos and town lake walks once a week after that!  She’s an incredible person and it’s been so enjoyable watching her romance with her then boyfriend blossom into the real deal.  These two are engaged and having a fun year of new puppies, a new home and many adventures together!  Ashley & Dan – you two are wonderful together and I’m thankful to know you and count our laser tag brunch double date as one of my favorite double dates ever!  Congratulations and thank you for trusting me with your puppies and to capture this special time in your life!  Love you!   ...
Fernando & Kaci’s Dripping Springs Engagement Session

Fernando & Kaci’s Dripping Springs Engagement Session

I am so excited to share with you guys a true “Texas Hill Country” enagement shoot!  I met Kaci last year when she graciously shared her talents and did hair & makeup for our Tuscany in Texas wedding photography workshop models and remember hearing about her really awesome boyfriend….who 8 months later asked her to be his forever!  I sent Kaci a facebook congrats (all the exlaimation points!!!!) and was so excited when she contacted me to capture their love story and engagement photos at one of her favorite locations – a horse ranch in the hill country with her horse Izzy!  I had a great time meeting all the horses, meeting their other fur babies (3 doggies!) and of course, meeting Fernando!  It’s easy to see these two make each other smile and Fernando puts such a light in Kaci’s eyes and makes her laugh so easily and genuinely!  Wishing you two a lifetime of laughter and adventures together! Thanks for having a great afternoon with me in Dripping Springs!!  – Jessica Tell us in a few sentences how you two met! Fernando and I met at a friends Halloween party. We were both dressed up, myself as Edward Scissorhands the feminine versions of course lol I had always wanted to be him since I do hair and makeup after all. Nano got invited late to the party so he improvised and painted his face like a skeleton. I approached him to tell him how great his face paint was totally expecting him to say his girlfriend had done it…to my surprise he said he had done it...
