The spring in Texas is always an excellent time for weddings and engagements. This spring Tamika and I were particularly excited and a part of which had to do with the fact that we got to shoot Joesph and Samantha’s beautiful island wedding at San Luis Resort in Galveston, TX. Being that it was my first time capturing a wedding in Galveston, coming in I had all kinds of ideas from other island weddings I had shot in Jamaica and the Bahamas. As always, things did not turn out as plan, but in this case, like most times, turned out better than I could have imagined.
Samantha had beautifully designed a classic chic wedding centered around her Peacock Feathered theme which she pulled together flawlessly. It was such a pleasure to be a part of their special occasion from which I am extremely excited about the images we were able to capture and share!
What we love most about each other: he says “The sweet heart I have for him.” I say “you’re always there for me no matter what”. – Samantha

One of the things my wife and I have always appreciated is the support that we have received from the people that have known from our past. To me it is such an honor to capture the wedding of friend that you have known for a really long time. This was the case in Troy and Ricci’s outdoor wedding at Baldwin Park in downtown Houston Texas. I first met Ricci in what I think was 4th grade. So, when she informed me that she was getting married and considering me to photograph her wedding day, I was truly honored.
Troy and Ricci both live in Austin, but decided to have their wedding in Houston closer to all of their family and friends. The wedding itself was anything but typical and really complimented their personalities and reflected their appreciation for their friends and family. It was such a pleasure to capture their wedding day and we are really excited to share the images.
It is difficult for me to discuss Vini & Denise’s wedding without expressing my genuine affection for them as a couple! Seriously, they are an incredible couple and they had orchestrate the best wedding you would ever want to participate.
More than the flowers, decor, and other tangible items that make up the physical aspect of the wedding, there was an overwhelming feeling of love, compasion, and support that flowed through their personalities and was echoed by their family and friends that attended the wedding!
Everything about the wedding was uniquely crafted to reflect their character and values. For that reason, I considered it an incredible compliment when they chose me to document their wedding through my photography. Here are images from their wedding at St. Mark’s Mehodist Church and Nouveau Art Bar.
We all think about it. Having a wedding draped with palm trees, a never ending ocean backdrop, drop dead gorgeous weather, and a relaxed vacation vibe with all of our close family and friends. I get it. But the reality is only a quarter of American’s have a destination wedding and less than one third of those weddings are held outside the Continental US.
So, for the small percentage of couples that choose to have their nuptials in an exotic and distant destination comes a awesome reward of rum punch filled rock glasses and aqua blue ocean water as clear as unstained and freshly cleaned window. That was the case for Damon and Adreana who managed to avoid being disappointed by Hurricane Sandy by a couple days.
The weather the day of the Wedding was absolutely amazing which was preceded by two nights of knockout punch (the name says it all), all inclusive goodness, and dancing all provided by Sandals Negril.
The whole experience was truly amazing and it was such an honor to participate in the wedding of Damon & Adreana Nash.
So, for those of you that have never visited the Alden Hotel in Houston, TX, you have yet to experience their marvelous second floor banquet space that offers the perfect hybrid of outdoor light and scenery with in door comfort. Which is awesome because to attend a outdoor wedding in Houston in the beginning of September one must prepare themselves to endure the humid heat.
Fortunately, I did not have to prepare myself for such torture to shoot James & Danielle’s sophisticated wedding soriee at the Alden Hotel! The affair was as she described it, which was ”Romantic Fun”.
As an added bonus both Danielle and James have a great appreciation for art work, as James himself is a painter, thus both encouraged me to explore creatively as I photographed their special day. As any photographer would tell you, that was definitely a plus!
It was really awesome to be a part of Scott & Jackie’s Wedding at the Hilton Americas in Houston, TX located directly across the street from Discover Green! I had never shot at the Hilton before, but I can say that it was a great experience. Scott & Jackie are an amazing couple and being a part of their wedding was an absolute pleasure!
Who doesn’t love shooting a wedding on a EXTREMELY nice day at an amazing venue like The Parador, in Houston, TX? That’s how it was for Alex and Toni in March. Just an awesome day!
When I first met with Alex and Toni they had already booked me to photograph their wedding and we were meeting to get to know each other and go over the details of the day. They were such an awesome couple and it was then when they said some of the most beautiful words a photographer can ever hear. Those words were “we LOVE your work and the way you capture moments”. Who me? Really? I was caught off guard by more the comment because it was out of the blue, but I was truly overwhelmed by their overall kindness. Words can not say enough so I will stop talking. Or writing. Here are the photos from their lovely wedding in Houston.
It is not often enough that you get to experience a beautiful wedding on a glorious day. But when you do, it is even more fantastic to experience it with a couple like Clifford & Eleanor!
This was my second time visiting Safari Texas Ranch which created an amazing back drop for Clifford & Eleanor’s outdoor ceremony and ballroom reception. For my first post in a while due to a crazy busy March, I couldn’t be happier that it is from their lovely day!
Getting to know Kelton & Shavara over the past few years through photography has been one of the perks of being a photographer! When they announced their engagement I was truly flattered that they didn’t even blink before asking me to shoot their Wedding!
The ceremony and reception were both held at Bayou City Event Center near Reliant Park. The decor and ambiance was extremely nice. Of course Shavara had her hand in every single detail from the hair pins in the Bridesmaids hair to the extremely chic Bride and Groom’s Table.
It has truly been a great year for us at Still-Life Media Photography! Being great however, has taken away alot of the time we like to contribute share photos with you on our blog. :(
Thus, I have finally caught up enough to share some of the photos from Sam and Kim’s Wedding at the Heights Villa in Houston, TX. Sam and Kim were definitely one of the kindess and most thoughtful couples that I have encountered. It was such a pleasure to be a part of Their Day!
