Rubi and Efrain Wedding Previews | Corpus Christi, Texas | December 27, 2014

Church Service – Most Precious Blood Catholic Church

Reception – Solomon Ortiz Center

Hotel – Omni Hotel of Corpus Christi

Efrain and Rubi celebrated their wedding on a cold and dreary day, but that didn’t stop their warm and glowing love from showing through.  We braved the wind and cold front to capture a few moments for some additional portraits at the historic Galvan House in Heritage Park as well as the entry floor of the Omni Hotel of Corpus Christi, I just love their festive decorations this time of year. These Texas A&M graduates were even sent off with their guests twirling custom white towels, such as the tradition at their college football games.  On that note, congratulations to the Aggies who knocked off Big 12’s West Virginia Mountaineers today in a squeaker of a game 45-37 – Gig ’em.  Please enjoy the Living Pictures Slideshow as well as some of my favorite moments below the video.  I wish the best to the them as they begin their new life together.

Print date July 7, 2014

Where: The Produce Gallery, 415 D Peoples Street, Corpus Christi, Texas

What: First ever e-cigarette meet-up

This is an outtake.  I didn’t think it was a suitable image to send to print partly because the focus was soft, other than that. I LIIIIIIKE it.

 

Micah DeBenedetto/Special to the Caller-Times Adam Thompson, visiting from Baton Rouge, Louisiana,  demonstrates the e-cigarette at the first e-cigarette meet-up in Corpus Christi known as "Cloud City" at the Produce Gallery on June 27, 2014.

Shrimporee Outtakes – Aransas Pass, Texas – June 14, 2014

These are two outtakes from the day’s assignment.  Why I chose this perspective?  Besides I loving this perspective, and it being totally awesome, I wanted to be able to capture something “small” in the large scope of the carnival/festival atmosphere.  This vantage point allowed me that possibility.  The kid on the right kept tricking everyone with a fake countdown.  1, 2, 3, and they’d launch and he’d be the last one left.  For some reason he wanted everyone else to go before him, and when he did, he literally yelled something to the effect of “bloobydoobyblaboo.”  #goodtimesMicah DeBenedetto/Special to the Caller-Times Micah DeBenedetto/Special to the Caller-Times

Meg and John Wedding | Mansion by the Sea, Aransas Pass, Texas | June 6, 2014

I’ve been extremely blessed to come across clients that are basically the most wonderful people on the Earth.  Meg is a talented artist who hails from Canada, she created a Thumb Print Tree for her wedding guests and plans to frame and display in their new home!  I’m waiting for a pic!  John is an oil man who loves to make lists, lists, and more lists!

They held an intimate wedding ceremony at the Mansion by the Sea attended by close friends and family.  Meg actually had two of her childhood guy friends serve as “BRIDESMEN.”   This also marked the first time I was able to take a photograph of the entire wedding ceremony in a heart shape around the couple.  I think everything turned out great, and I’m not biased.

Please enjoy the Living Pictures Video Slideshow as well as some of my favorite images from their special day.  It was a beautiful beginning to the start of a new life together for the two families!
