Spring Portraits

   
Spring has finally sprung! After a wild winter ride, our garden is in full bloom. The backyard at our northwest Houston studio is filled with azaleas and greenery galore.

However, we will continue to book sessions at a closer location while the flowers are still in bloom.  Hurry and book your spring pictures today to beat the coming heat of the summer!

Venue Feature: Raveneaux Country Club

     This past weekend, we had the immense pleasure of photographing a wedding, at our neighbor around the corner Raveneaux Country Club. This venue is a tried and true favorite and one of the best wedding venues in Northwest Houston. This year the club has made many renovations to the ballroom and the grounds making it the perfect location for any Houston wedding or event.

 This wedding was on a rainy Saturday and the staff at Raveneaux could not have done a better job making sure the event went off without a hitch. We were able to utilize all of the most beautiful areas in the club for portraits without getting wet! The Old Course Pub made a perfect setting for the groom and his guys as well as a romantic spot for the couple alone. The new iron doors have recently been updated and add a more modern feel to the entryway. We just loved these vintage looking finishes on these portraits of the bride and groom.  
 The ballroom was cleverly and quickly reset for the reception while the guests enjoyed beverages and hors d'oeuvres. As event photographers we were faced with a challenging situation with the bad weather. However, this wedding venue proved to have much to offer as far as photographic opportunities.
 This balcony overlooking the golf course is always a favorite spot for portraits. At night we found that it made for a romantic setting for the couple even with the rain. With all Raveneaux has to offer, we highly recommend it to all our brides seeking a wedding venue in northwest Houston. If you are getting married in Houston, please ask us about getting a discount on your wedding photography but booking with Raveneaux Country Club.

Wedding Venue Feature: Ashton Gardens


         With so many wedding venues available in the Houston area, it can be overwhelming for a bride and groom to decide! In order to educate our potential brides, we are happy to feature Ashton Gardens on our blog today. This wedding venue is conveniently located near the Hardy Toll Road, making it assessable from downtown Houston and The Woodlands. Ashton Gardens is a one stop shop! The venue boasts a lovely chapel with a wall of windows to let in the beautiful natural light, making a picturesque background for your wedding ceremony.   The columned walk-way leads to the spacious reception hall, with the surrounding grounds being lush with greenery and wooded. The ballroom is adorned with chandeliers and more welcoming light. This couple chose to accent the room with up-lighting in the wedding colors, to add a personal touch. The staff and service were impeccable, with every detail accounted for. This Houston wedding venue is truly a favorite of ours to photograph. For more details and images from this wedding, be sure to catch our feature in The Woodland's Bride magazine's next issue.
