Mariely & Mauro

It was such an honor to be a part of Mariely & Mauro’s wedding plans! I used to work with Mauro years ago when I was in sales for a web design firm and he was a graphic designer. He was one of my favorite people to work with – so it was such an honor when he found me through LinkedIn and he & Mariely selected me to photograph their wedding. I was so happy for him, finding such a beautiful woman to spend the rest of his life with! They are both such wonderful people!

We held off doing Mariely & Mauro’s engagement session because we wanted to wait for the cooler fall weather. Of course, this is Houston – and sometimes, cool weather never comes! Unfortunately, after the two weddings on November 10th, and Andi & Jason’s engagement session, I ended up admitted to the hospital for severe anemia and other problems. I was supposed to have minor surgery that week with a two day recovery time, and instead ended up having major surgery with a six week recovery. All of that meant that I wasn’t going to be able to shoot their engagement session, or their wedding.

I’m fortunate to have such a great network of friends and photographers here in Houston, and I immediately called on them once I got the news. It was all just such an ironic twist of fate, considering the fact that I had photographed the Emergency Wedding just a week before! I called on Elaine Mesker-Garcia and asked Jeff Balke to assist her with the shoot, and they headed out on Saturday, November 17, 2007 to Eleanor Tinsley Park next to downtown Houston. It was so comforting knowing that everything was in their very capable hands – I love their shots from the day!
