Joia + Delano
Joia and Delano live in San Antonio, which is just over a three hour drive from the heart of Houston. Joia first contacted me about her anniversary session with Delano months beforehand with her heart set on a rooftop engagement session in Downtown Houston. After months of planning a weekend vacation centered around their anniversary session at the new Marriott Marquis, Joia and Delano finally arrived to H-Town...and to one of the rainiest weekends ever. Okay, maybe not ever but it was hella rainy.
Joia and Delano didn't let this rain on their parade, and decided to make lemonade out of lemons. So we found nooks and crannies with pockets of good light in their hotel and made the best of it. We were even let out onto the Marquis' beautiful deck with the Texas-shaped lazy river to take pictures. Normally this isn't allowed and is highly patrolled...but I think they took pity on us lol.
Joia and Delano, thank you so much for coming all the way to Houston for me to photograph y'all and for being such great sports with the weather. Y'all are the best!
