The Cotton Gin No. 116 Wedding Venue is nestled outside of Houston in a cotton gin turned event space that I just love. Not only is the venue manager, Kim, one of the nicest people ever to help with your wedding, you’re surrounded by history in this building in downtown Brookshire. There’s just so many options you could do when holding your event there and so many places to take photos (perk for me!) They’ll truly take care of you along with all of the vendors a part of this shoot! Continue reading

With the important role of documenting our lives now and displaying for the world to see online or with family, proposal photography has been more and more common. I love it because you capture it all NOT on a cell phone, it allows you to capture the moment forever and if family attends then they can enjoy the moment without being stuck in their phones. Even better is at the end I have time to capture a few portraits to use for announcements.
Every year I end up at the annual WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) conference in Las Vegas. Since moving back to Texas, I still make the pilgrimage in February to Las Vegas to see the expo and learn as much as I can during the 3 days. This year I will only be attending the expo since I am taking a trip into Utah with my bestie and shooting an engagement session in the Utah sand dunes… soooo exciting!
As far as downtown Houston locations go, engagement sessions at Sam Houston Park is one of my favorites to shoot at. You can get the outdoors look with the Houston skyline backdrop, and then a quick walk you can have more modern look like the white marble Shell Gas building.
Though this site has been around for over 8 years, I finally got a chance to update it. Over the last 8 years I’ve just put as much of my work on here as possible but now Pure Plush has only weddings and portrait work to feature. After digging through my portfolio and selecting some of my favorite photos along with a wide variety of shots, I’m excited to finally re-debut! It took a lot of hard work to get here, but I couldn’t be happier doing what I love and providing the very most I can to clients.
