Houston Wedding Photography
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.

Below are some portraits from Becca and Christian’s engagement session
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 will be discussed at this time. The studio offers both in studio and location sessions to accommodate our clients’ needs.
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 out 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 shoot 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 sessions are approximately 50 minutes to 1 hour in duration.
