Houston Couples Portrait Photographer
Michael Carr Photography is a Houston based portrait studio that has specialized in weddings and portraits for over 20 years. With over 400 plus engagement portraits photographed, Michael’s style remains contemporary and timeless in nature. Many of our images have been used for save the date announcements, bridal shower portraits, signature boards and framed portraits that are displayed at the wedding reception venue.
Our process begins with a portrait consultation to discuss the vision for your portrait session, clothing and the overall mood of your portrait will be discussed at this time. The studio offers both in studio and on location portrait sessions to accommodate our clients’ needs for their engagement portraits. For in studio portrait sessions, we offer a professional studio equipped with professional lighting gear and various professional camera systems. We will design a custom set for the portrait session based on a couple’s vision for their engagement portrait.
We have outfitted our Houston professional portrait studio with private dressing rooms, surround sound acoustics and tethered monitors with our camera systems. With this equipment setup, couples can review images during their session on a 22” flat panel as opposed to the back of the 35mm camera. Studio portrait sessions are approximately 45 minutes – 1 hour in duration.
If your vision is a location portrait, we can accommodate most requests. Location portraiture is where Michael’s career began and continues to be one of his most sought after portrait services. Again, a portrait consultation is always recommended so that the clients’ vision and expectations can be communicated and understood. As a courtesy, Michael will scout most locations prior to any confirmed portrait session date. Some commercial locations require commercial permits and fees for photography, which must be purchased by the client prior to the session date. We do offer access to public non-fee locations with lush landscapes or architecturally strong backgrounds. Most location portrait sessions are approximately 50 minutes to 1 hour in duration.
