Houston Bridal Photographer | Carson’s Bridal Session

I usually share a bridal session the day after the wedding. But with Carson marrying Katy, I decided to stagger sharing the images. I can’t believe it has been a week since Carson and Katy had their magical wedding!! I will delve into this more when I blog about their wedding, but one of my favorite touches were the hanging keys dangling from the canopy. But enough about the wedding!! This blog is all about Carson’s bridal session!!

The Bridal Session

Carson, we’ll see if I find the words to describe how rad it was to work with you and how magical of a bride you made.

Ah lawdy.

As if Rice University background weren’t enough to make me giddy inside, the following things from your session were perfection!

-your elegant white Rita Vinieris dress

-your understated bouquet from Blooming Gallery

-your fabulously sequined Jimmy Choo shoes

-the awesome work  by Winx Salon for your makeup and and Etheria Spa and Salon for your hair

-and your MAGICAL SELF

As a graduate of Rice University, the location was the perfect place for the bridal session. Plus, obviously the feel of the place added to the overall feel of the images. Add into Carson, her dress and her possible awkwardness, and you have magic! If anyone knows Carson, will know how glad she was to have flowers in her hands because she worries about that stuff.

I’m so excited that I get to share your bridals with everyone now that you’re a Mrs.!!

Houston Bridal Photographer | Katy’s Bridal Portraits

I love sharing bridal portraits the day after the wedding! Katy and Carson had a wedding that was truly magical, filled with Harry Potter touches, so you know I was delighted!! Plus, there was so much love, that when I look at these bridal portraits I am even more inspired.

The Bridal Portraits

Katy’s bridal portraits were nothing short of exceptional. I don’t say this lightly. Katy is an attorney and she wanted to have that incorporated into her bridal portraits in a unique way, so we did the session at Lawless Spirits & Kitchen. Lawless Spirits & Kitchen is such a cool choice!! It is a place that embraces “the mavericks, dissenters, and nonconformists who have shaped the world with their unbridled courage and unrestrained passion”. It has pictures of famous people who have embodied this vision in their life, from Ghandi to MarkTwain to Susan B. Anthony. As Katy is a person who also embodies these qualities, this venue fit her like a glove.

The Dress

Katy’s dress is glittery magic! it has an art deco feel to it, with swirly patterns, beading and shimmer. Form-fitting, it hangs on her every curve, like the dress is kissing her. And that train! You guys, that train is just enough and has a dramatic effect ?Add in that veil, and she is the epitome of a classy, elegant bride. So what is your favorite part of Katy’s dress? Let me know in the comments? Also, don’t you just love the venue?

5 Things to Think About if Wedding Pictures are Important to You

5 Things to Think About if Wedding Pictures are Important to You

You’re sitting here thinking “Of course wedding pictures are important to me, Christine!”. But I ask because when you are planning your wedding there are a lot of areas where you can cut costs, and with some of those choices you don’t notice the cut, but in others you do. In all honestly, wedding pictures are an area where if you cut too deep, you wind up with images you might not just regret but ultimately hate. So today I dig into 5 things you should think about if wedding pictures are important to you.

When a photographer is breaking into the wedding industry they typically price themselves in a lower {aka more appealing} price bracket. For reference, the average cost for a wedding photographer, according to The Knot, is $2783. I like to say the you can find a great photographer within $500 higher or lower for this amount. But anything less than $2200 and you are entering into what I call “newer” photographer territory. So to help navigate these waters, where you don’t want to spend an arm, leg and kidney for your images, but you still want the WOW factor, here are some tips in getting there:Swish + Click Photography (more…)

Sarah’s Bridal Portraits

The sun was soft and warm, the morning of Sarah’s bridal portraits. She was ready at the break of dawn, her mother having flown on a red-eye flight to make sure she was there to help. Sarah’s dress is strapless with pockets and a gorgeous belt. Combined with the sun and nature, Sarah’s bridal session is nothing short of gorgeous.

I am excited to share Sarah’s bridal portraits, as she and Earl got married yesterday! Remember their engagement session? The wedding was beautiful and fun! Congratulations to this amazing couple!
