Houston Wedding Photographer Gives Harvey Victims Discount!

Where do I even start?  My husband Brian and I got married this past May in the backyard of our newly purchased home in Kingwood, TX.  It was our dream home, everything we were looking for, just needed some cosmetic updates.  After the wedding we began 3 months worth of updating our forever home.  In August we were wrapping up the finishing touches, getting all settled in and finally in a normal routine.

And then Harvey happened. In just a few short hours our home went from high and dry...to having over 4 feet of water.  We had no time to escape, our cars were already submerged.  My family organized a rescue on jet skis, and we nearly died during our rescue.  Its a long story- an international photography magazine, Rangefinder, actually wrote about it.  You can read the story of our rescue here:

After our close brush with death, I have an entirely new appreciation for life. I'm so thankful God spared us that day and since then, the outpouring of love from fellow Texans and out of state strangers has been overwhelming.

During the next few days after Harvey we began receiving boxes of clothes, gift cards, and letters from strangers, friends, and family.  We had people show up at our door, unannounced, grab a hammer, and start demoing our home with us.  A boy scout troop from Dallas came down and starting bringing our trash to the curb.  Strangers drove by our home giving out water and pizzas.  People drove from Oklahoma to rescue our pets.  I can't talk about it without crying.  THIS is Texas, THIS is America, THIS is what the human race is about.

After receiving so much love, I want to give back in whatever small way I can.  Because I am a Houston wedding photographer, I began thinking of all the poor brides out there planning their wedding that may have had their home destroyed in the flood. How that could completely change their wedding plans and budgets.  My heart goes out to all those impacted, I know how you feel.

Any bride that locks in their 2017-2018 wedding by October 30th whose home was affected by the flood I am happy to give 25% OFF ANY WEDDING PACKAGE.  I've never discounted my packages this much and never will unless God forbid another Harvey situation happens.  I wish I were a millionaire and could do these weddings for free, but like so many other people in Houston, we didn't have flood insurance.

I am praying for all Houstonians and now Floridians affected by the storm.  We've been so fortunate to have other companies like Apple and Wayfair discount their prices to help us replace items we lost in the storm.  Every little bit helps, and I want to be part of helping others as well. I encourage all photographers and small business owners out there in the area to do what you can to help those impacted by the storm.

In the meantime my business is still operational- you just may be meeting with me in the 2nd floor of my home...which looks great! Just pardon the dust on the first floor ;)

We're all in this together, and together we are strong. Together we are Houston Strong!

 Waiting for our rescue!
