Houston Elopement Photography // Tinu + Lanre

| Houston Elopement Photography |

When people hear ‘elopement’, there’s usually an understanding that traveling to a beautiful location is a part of the plan. However, there are just as beautiful of locations here in our backyard of Houston, Texas! I worked with Tinu + Lanre to find an unexpected location for their Houston ceremony. As a result, the chosen location is best suitable for an elopement like theirs.

Tinu + Lanre eloped early morning on August 20, 2020 at Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park. Her attire from Maison Rime Arrodaky + Magda Butrym took my breath away! The couple wed at the top of the steps facing the Waterwall. A perfect backdrop for pictures! Chris Mitchell helped set the romantic scene by playing jazz during the ceremony. A few close friends stood close by on the lower steps to watch the couple become one. We took some portraits immediately after the cereomny. And lastly, Tinu + Lanre signed their marriage certificate.  The whole process took just an hour. Next year, we look forward to their full on celebration at Los Cabos!

Despite the glitz and glam of large weddings, elopement photography is something I truly love to shoot. Not only are elopements romantic, they also allow the couple to be authentic, intimate and have their love be the ultimate center of attention. Elopements have been my secret passion since I first started photography. And I’m so excited to see elopements on the rise right here in Houston!!
