Rice University Engagement Photos – Rice University Engagement Photos. Many may be surprised to know that university and college campuses are widely used for weddings and bridal photos. In Houston, the beautiful campus at Rice University provided a romantic and elegant backdrop for Sandra and JC’s engagement session. Known for the Lynn R. Lowrey Arboretum, which is named in honor of the Houston horticulturist, which is filled with lush green ivy, native woody plants, grasses, and wildflowers throughout a 300-acre tree-lined campus. In addition, the Mediterranean Revival architectural style of these brick buildings and columns are iconic.
There is one thing that is undeniable about Second Shots Photography couples… they want high end editorial looks. In order to accomplish this, it is important to have your make-up done by a professional. For this bride-to-be, contouring and blending with brown and earthy tones highlighting Sandra’s cheekbones added the right touch of glam for the camera. Because your hairstyle is as important as the choice of your bridal gown, these two were in harmony with intricate natural styles. Go team natural!
You simply can’t go wrong in black, and this couple’s look was timeless. Sandra was pure sophistication in an off the shoulder sheath column dress with a high slit. JC went with denim jeans, which are the “go-to pants” for any occasion that doesn’t require a suit. Along with the slim cut button-down shirt, JC’s appearance was very sleek and modern.
Sandra and JC Sandra and JC were such a pleasure to work with. They requested that we showcase their personalities in their photo session, which was easy to display in these shots. Their chemistry was amazing. Dr. Sandra truly enjoys laughing and JC was the complete jokester! However, I love it when couples are not afraid to laugh in front of the lens. It makes my job so easy and fun.
