Lauren & Blake | The State Bar | Houston Photographer

By September 25, 2012 anytime session, couples, portraits

After a little hiatus, I’m very happy to be back blogging today with some photos from a recent session! Lauren and Blake are a wonderful couple and I loved working with them at the beautiful State Bar in downtown Houston. Not only is this bar gorgeous, there’s always a laid-back vibe and excellent music on rotation. I highly recommended checking it out if you’re in the Houston area! For this session, we spent a little time inside in a private corner and then headed out on the balcony patio to take advantage of the amazing dusk light.

Lauren and Blake are both really warm, funny people and I really enjoyed spending the afternoon with them. My favorite part was learning about an Astroworld connection they have – Lauren worked there in college and Blake was actually in a commercial for the theme park when he was a kid. If only I could track one down on YouTube…believe me, I tried!

    I think I need that dress in my life. The third-to-last diptych is my favorite 🙂
