Destination Wedding Photography

Houston based wedding and portrait photographers, Michael and Lisa Carr, recently photographed Courtney & Bryan’s destination wedding in Vail, Colorado. The wedding and reception were both at The Ritz Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. We have known Courtney and her family for many years, since we photographed her sister’s wedding almost 8 years ago. We were so honored they asked us to photograph Courtney’s wedding, at a secluded resort outside Beaver Creek!

The weather was very nice on their wedding day. It was perfect for an outdoor ceremony in Colorado. Everyone enjoyed breathtaking mountain views and clear blue skies during the ceremony. After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed a cocktail reception on the balcony outside the ballroom. The candlelit reception was indoors, and after the seated dinner the guests danced the night away and enjoyed sweets at the custom desert station. Congratulations Courtney & Bryan, here is a sneak peek of images from your wedding.

Bridal & Engagement Portraits

Below are some portraits from Courtney’s bridal and engagement sessions.

Houston bridal portrait photographer, Michael Carr, recently photographed Courtney’s bridal portrait on location. We met Courtney in 2008 when we photographed her sister’s wedding in Houston. When we were talking with Courtney about her vision for her bridal portrait, she knew she wanted a different location than her sister’s and she wanted it to compliment her gown. She also wanted flexibility with indoor options and outdoor options. We suggested a private location for her bridal portraits in Houston. She had many options for her final Bridal Portraits. One of these portraits is hanging in her parent’s home, and Courtney also has her own bridal portrait hanging in her home. Special thanks to the local vendors that helped with her portrait: Corinne with Façade Uptown did an outstanding job with her makeup and Plants n Petals designed her bridal bouquet.
