Hi there! We're Luke and Cat, and we're so happy you're here. We hope you'll stay a while! We’re a husband and wife wedding photographer team based in Houston, Texas. Ranchers-turned-photographers, our world looks like this: a Craftsman-style farmhouse; our newborn, Knox, in our arms; coffee in the kitchen; Edison lights on the back porch; and a pair of English bulldogs at the foot of our bed.

Here’s what we’re discussing over our morning coffee on this week!

  • Steaks, steaks, and more steaks! We have spent almost every day for the past week thawing, cooking, and photographing some of the best beef in the world! Triangle B Ranch commissioned Luke to come to their ranch in Oklahoma last summer to build their image gallery for advertising, but they also needed photos of their actual beef products! So last week, they sent us over 75 pounds of beef to photograph! Wagyu beef is some of the finest beef around. Lets just say, we've been eating steaks that are worth several hundred dollars every day for a week - all while standing around our kitchen in tee shirts. Fine dining, indeed!

  • Workshop mode! Our first Life & Craft Workshop (the workshop we host for photographers) in over a year starts exactly one week from today! We're hosting this one in a brand new 'venue' - a house on the ranch. We've been going over daily working and prepping. Tomorrow, we're headed into Houston to finalize a few rentals we need for the Farewell Fiesta. That may need to include margarita sampling!
  • Time Changes Are Worse When you Have Children. I used to love "fall back" because that meant we got an extra hour of sleep. But little Knox, who is already a great sleeper and sleeps from 7:30 pm to 7:30 am, awoke at his normal time on Sunday morning... except that that was 6:30 with the new time! He's back to normal though already. Thank goodness!
  • Speaking of Knox, he's rolling over like crazy now. Yay (and whoa) for mobility! He's 4.5 months old now, and we're excited to start feeding him his first 'solids' next week! Any tips for us? Leave it in the comments. We're nervous!
  • This is Us brought us to tears again. Maybe it's just us, but the past couple of episodes just hadn't seemed as wow-worthy as Season 1. This past week though, that all changed. Who is your favorite character? Ours is Randall.

Have a great week!

Love & Coffee,
