Wedding Photographers in Houston

Houston wedding photographer, Michael Carr Photography, recently photographed Becca & Christian’s wedding and reception. The ceremony was held at St. Luke’s Methodist Church, and their reception was held at a private residence.

Originally the couple was to have their reception at the Omni. Well, this summer hurricane Harvey hit Houston and due to the Omni flooding, the couple had to decide on a new venue for their reception. Ann Whittington helped transform their ballroom reception into a stunning tent reception at a private residence. The reception became a one of a kind, unique ballroom. With the floral and décor talented team from Plants n Petals, the tent was adorned with marble walls, floral décor on the ceiling, chandeliers, and even a flower floor entryway to welcome guests. The guests enjoyed a seated dinner, and danced the night away with the fun band from Atlanta: Party on the Moon. The cakes were made by Susie’s Cakes. At the end of the evening, fireworks & guests sent the couple off for their honeymoon.

Houston Wedding Photographers

Houston Wedding Photographers, Michael Carr Photography, recently photographed this Rehearsal Dinner for a wonderful couple. We also photographed their wedding, which will be highlighted in a separate post. Their rehearsal dinner was held at The St. Regis Houston. Their rehearsal dinner theme was a Renaissance Union, and coordinated by Ann Whittington. This theme was carried through all the details and décor for their intimate rehearsal dinner. Guests were welcomed into the dinner with door greeters in Renaissance attire and dialect. They also had an incredible cake that looked like a castle, with a water mote surrounding the castle. Susie’s Cakes did a wonderful job with this cake, and it looked so real! In the cocktail area, guests could write well wishes to the couple on coins with the couples monogram, and toss the coins in a wishing well. A Renaissance quartet provided wonderful background music during the cocktail reception. The St. Regis ballroom was decorated with the same theme and pulled together with candles and beautiful florals by Plants n Petals.

Houston Women’s Portrait Photographer, Michael Carr, creates women’s portraits for special milestones in their lives. Featured today is a multi-look beauty session where formal to casual looks were incorporated into a beauty session. This beauty session was a gift from her parents after Natasha received her MBA.

Prior to the session, we talked with Natasha to determine the best clothing options for her portraits and session. When she was out shopping for clothing options Natasha talked with us virtually so we could help her select the best options. Before the session Natasha went to a local salon for hair and makeup so she looked polished and portrait ready. With a lively spirit and her personal playlist playing in the studio, we enjoyed creating different style images for both the parents and of course, Natasha.

Every woman needs a beautiful portrait of herself.

We often see that documenting milestone in one’s life is often satisfied with cell phone images and subpar snapshots. Investing in professional portrait photography is part of a legacy you are creating to pass down for future generations to enjoy. We enjoyed getting to know Natasha on the day of her session. She was a young person with high expectations of herself. Her free spirit helped create an enjoyable environment and a successful portrait session.

Professional Studio Portrait Photographer

In Studio Portraits

Professional portrait photographer, Michael Carr, created this studio image as part of a subject’s personal portrait portfolio. The goal was to create an image with some fashion flare. She knew she wanted to wear all white for this portrait. To compliment her attire, we choose a pure white background for a high key effect. During her portrait consultation, we finalized her clothing selections and decided she would have her makeup and hair professionally taken care of.

Posing and expression were kept simple and helped create the overall mood for the image. This wall portrait is a statement piece that captures her beautifully at this stage in her life.
