I spent over an hour tonight looking through hard drives of old photos while reminding myself why I keep shooting weddings. (You will see some of those photos in the next few weeks.) One thing I couldn’t help but think about is all the amazing people I’ve met along the way. Thanks to all of you 😌☺️

Are you looking to elope in a private ceremony? One where you can have your cake and eat it too? When founder, AJ was planning her elopement to Chris she was blown away by how limited the options. It shouldn't be that difficult to have a beautiful service, first dance, cake cutting and a champagne toast for two - Yet it really was, but Truly Eloped can serve your traditional and non-traditional ceremony needs. Link in bio for pricing! Just need a valid Texas marriage license! #houstonelopement
