Texas Outdoor Ranch Wedding
Houston Wedding Photographers
Houston wedding and portrait photographers, Michael and Lisa Carr, recently photographed Lynette & Rowdy’s outdoor wedding. We met Lynette a few years ago when we photographed her sister’s wedding, and hit it off immediately.
Lynette & Rowdy love the outdoors and knew that Houston Oaks would be the perfect venue for their outdoor ceremony and reception, plus there is enough room there to accommodate her 1000+ guest that were attending. They contacted Ann Whittington to plan and coordinate this wedding. Their ceremony was under a huge oak tree that was adorned with tons of roses and flowers on the branches. After the ceremony, guests moved to the tented cocktail area, then over to the outdoor reception under the lights. Suspended over the dance floor was a custom floral and Einstein light bulb arrangement. Plants n Petals and their team handled the décor and florals. The guests were able to dine on custom tables made especially for this outdoor reception on the lawn. Each leg on each table had to be individually adjusted so the table would be level on the ground for the guests to dine comfortably. Talk about attention to detail required! The trees and dancefloor all had custom lighting to give a warm and beautiful nighttime ambiance. The guests danced non-stop all through the evening under the stars. After the last dance, guests gave Lynette and Rowdy a rose petal send off and then watched a custom fireworks show on the golf course before they departed in a personal helicopter. Talk about a one of a kind, spectacular wedding event! All the guests have commented that this was a fairytale wedding. Yes, it certainly was!

Bridal & Engagement Portraits
Below are some portraits from Lynette’s bridal and engagement session
Houston portrait photographer, Michael Carr, offers on location engagement portrait sessions. Today we are highlighting a couple’s engagement session we photographed at the family’s ranch. The ranch served as the perfect setting for this session, since the rodeo has been an active part in the couple’s lives. As we traveled through the ranch we came upon a small pond surrounded by large oaks filled with tree moss. The family has enjoyed this location for many years, this setting served as the perfect location to start the storytelling process about this young couple’s relationship.
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.
