Lovely Montgomery Wedding by Photography by Niki

POSTED IN Houston, Real Weddings

Here is a lovely Montgomery wedding sent in by Photography by Niki. The bride’s bouquet includes various shades of white, pink, and corals. There are so many fantastic pops of color used in this wedding from the flowers, to the groom’s coral tie, to the mint colored bridesmaid dresses and reception decor. This wedding also made dessert a priority – which I’m sure was a hit with all of their guests! If a wedding cake isn’t enough for your big day why not add in cupcakes or a colorful candy bar like the one found in this reception. Find more photos from this wedding in the gallery.

From Photography by Niki…Kristen and Tim were married at Big Sky Barn in Montgomery, Texas. This gorgeous venue boasts a white washed wood wall chapel, with huge windows that overlook the trees at the alter. The natural light that comes into the chapel makes the atmosphere perfect for exchanging heartfelt vows and listening to acoustic music that the couple had at their ceremony. The bridesmaids wore light mint green and the groomsmen blue suits with coral ties. The flowers were lovely shades of pinks, corals, and whites. The reception barn was decorated in vintage tablescapes that added to the wonderful feel of the dark woods and stone in the room. The couple departed with a sparkler exit.

Sweet Houston Bridal Shoot by Raeleigh Photography

POSTED IN Bridals, Houston, Inspiration

This sweet Houston bridal shoot sent in by Raeleigh Photography is bright, lively, and simply delightful. Using the interior of a store as a location for a bridal shoot probably isn’t something most brides would think of. But it’s a unique and fun idea that more people should consider. I love the “put a ring on it” sign and the variety of angles and backgrounds the photographer used during this shoot. The close-up detail shots of the engagement ring with the bouquet are truly stunning. Check out more photos from this bridal shoot in the gallery.

From Raeleigh Photography… The inspiration for this shoot was the cupcake shop itself. The location is bright, fun, and laid back. We went into the shoot wanting to create a light and flirty vibe. We believe the fun environment, airy-ness of the dress, light colors of the bouquet, and the bride’s smile represents exactly the feel we were going for. We hope this inspires other brides to think outside the box when it comes to their bridal shoots. I love fields, beaches, and barns, but there’s just something about a bride in a cupcake shop that makes our hearts smile.

3. What elements of a wedding do you feel make it memorable and special?

Simply put – all the real moments. We love when our couples do a “first look” – when the couple sees each other for the first time before the wedding. It’s such an amazing start to the wedding day and the images resulting from the first look are always amazing – we love love.

4. What is the best shooting experience at a wedding you’ve had to date? What made it so special?

Each and every wedding is so unique, that it would be hard to name a favorite! We love when our couples incorporate special family traditions, display unique family treasures at their weddings – it makes us feel like we’re helping to create a history for the newest family!

5. What advice do you have for couples when choosing a wedding photographer?

There are several things to look for here – after all, your photos are your memories and what you walk away with from the big day (well, besides your marriage, of course)! – First, hire someone that you feel comfortable with. You spend a lot of time with your photographer (more than any other vendor!) – make certain you like each other! Second, really look at a photographer’s portfolio – see full galleries, actual prints, etc. Make certain that the style and quality is what you’re looking for. It’s so easy to see just a few spectacular images and think “wow!” – a full gallery from a wedding will tell a better story. Actual prints will show the quality.

6. What do you wish couples would do to make your job easier?

Work with us on the wedding day timeline – we’ve photographed hundreds of weddings and know how they work! Understand that a well-designed timeline helps the day go more smoothly and allows for a more relaxing wedding day! Which, in turn, allows for more natural photos and more of them!

7. From a design perspective, what backdrops do you feel make the most beautiful wedding images?

While we believe that backdrops can create some epic photos, it’s not always necessary to create a stunning, emotional image! Some of our favorite images are simply a momentary glance, a meaningful exchange between our couple. These moments happen everywhere – and a cliff overlooking the ocean may not be nearby! It’s important that we see these moments and professionally capture them in a way that the background (be it a parking garage or less than perfect wall) doesn’t matter. But hey, we love a great beach or giant live oak tree just like everyone else!
