Hi, I am Obed Esquivel-Pickett.

A little about me...


I was born in Mexico and raised in the Rio Grande Valley. I am the youngest of two & proud uncle of nine. I went to Medical school for a couple of years while simultaneously doing event photography as a side hustle on the weekends. I had the great fortune of learning from two talented wedding photographers, Anahi and Edgar Navarro, and the rest is history. I’ve been doing it professionally for 8+ years. Documenting love, big and small milestones all over Texas.

I met my now husband, Stephen in the midst of the global pandemic. We got engaged, moved in together, and recently bought a house in The Woodlands, TX which has kept us busy with various DIY renovation projects.

things I love

My family, sweet coffee, teary eye films, sunsets, hiking, the sound of the ocean, the smell of wet soil, looking up at the night sky, drawing, painting, sewing, cleaning & organizing.
