Jessica and Sam, thank you for entrusting me with your families memories. Your family was full of life! Of course I knew that going into it, having photographed Sam’s sister’s wedding (Tammy) last year down in Mexico, which lasted till 4:00am. The wedding/reception took place down in the heart of Houston at the Rice Crystal Ballroom. They got ready at the Magnolia Hotel which made the whole afternoon a breeze since I was able shift between rooms as they were getting ready (special note to planning brides – planning the getting ready process and keeping everything close when able really helps.) Jessica’s main desire was that the formals and the group stuff was done very quick! Their group formals took 8 minutes and our posed photos of them lasted all of 5 minutes. So 15 minutes after the ceremony we were on our way to the party! Their goal was to enjoy the day and did not want anyone (especially photos) messing with that. What a lovely party you guys threw. The after party which started at 12:30 was even jam packed. crazy.Contact the Studio or View Our Portfolio.
