Many of the weddings we have photographed have been published in magazines such as Weddings in Houston, The Knot, Modern Luxury and InStyle Weddings.

Several clients have also contracted us to travel and join their families as their destination wedding photographer.

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, 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.

The fun wedding weekend started on Friday, when we photographed their Rehearsal Dinner at Hotel Emma. You can read more about Kelli & Jeff’s Rehearsal Dinner here.

On the day of her wedding, Kelli and her bridesmaids spent their morning having their makeup and hair done at the hotel. We documented Kelli getting ready as well as Jeff getting ready at The St. Anthony Hotel. Their wedding ceremony was across the street at Travis Park United Methodist Church. After the ceremony, guests walked over to The St. Anthony Hotel to enjoy the reception. Kelli & Jeff’s reception was held on the first floor of the St. Anthony. Guests were able to go ballroom to ballroom and enjoy the band, décor, and even a lounge area. The lounge area décor complimented the hotel and the entire wedding décor. Florals for the wedding were by DeVinnie’s Paradise. The band was Blind Date Austin. They did a wonderful job with entertainment and the guests danced non-stop throughout the reception. Lisa and her team with Haute Weddings, San Antonio did a wonderful job coordinating the wedding.

Houston Bridal Portrait Photographer, Michael Carr (CPP), captured this contemporary bridal portrait in his Houston commercial portrait studio. The objective of the bridal portrait session was to capture a mixture of full length, three quarter length poses and seated poses for the bride’s portrait collection. During the capture phase of the seated poses, Michael’s creative eye saw this pose as a black & white portrait. After adjusting the studio lighting for more of a dramatic effect, this scene was created and a stunning contemporary black & white bridal portrait was captured.

Some of the advantages of having your portrait in studio versus outdoors is that you do not need to contend with rainy weather or humidity. Both Houston weather challenges typically produce windy or frizzy hair; not to mention makeup adjustments for perspiration. Our Houston studio is also equipped with a luxurious changing room so you can easily change into your wedding gown with indoor comfort.

The studio is conveniently located in a professional commercial building close to the Houston Galleria, and the Memorial area.
