Houston Engagement Portraits
Michael Carr Photography is a Houston based studio that has specialized in weddings and portraits for over 20 years. With over 400 plus engagement sessions 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 will be discussed at this time. The studio offers both in studio and location sessions to accommodate our clients’ needs. For in studio sessions, we offer a professional studio equipped with professional lighting gear and various professional camera systems. We will design a custom set for the session based on a couple’s vision for their engagement portrait. We have outfitted our studio with private dressing rooms, surround sound acoustics and tethered monitors with most of 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 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 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.
