Another familiar face for the third part of the Christmas minis! Emily, Andy, their precocious daughter and newly minted son Lou! Olivia was her typical rambunctious self, jumping around and singing to herself. I feel she might have a future in show business!

I love photographing this family because they are totally game for anything. Cute pose? Yup! Funny faces? You got it! A little bit of dancing? Why not! It makes for the best pictures.

Houston wedding photographerSecond Photographer?

On your wedding day, a ton is happening. You have hired a ton of people to help you throw the best party of your life. There are a lot of wheels in motion and time is passing at near warp speed. As the day unfolds it is normal for something to fall behind, go awry or generally be a fly in the ointment. Sometimes hair and makeup takes much longer than anticipated. Flowers are late. A bridal party member is missing. It happens. Some of these events delay your photographer, and thus they fall behind with you. Thus leading to why you should want to get a photography package with a second photographer included in it.

Schedule Craziness

As I mentioned above, there is a high chance your schedule will not go according to plan on your wedding day. This can throw scheduled picture taking time out the window. Having a second photographer to work specifically with the men, to get group and individual shots helps alleviate the time crunch with the main photographer. The same can be said for after the ceremony, while the main photographer is photographing the couple and the entire wedding party, the second photographer can be taking pictures of guests having a drink, details of the reception table, dessert table, etc. That extra person means extra amazing images!

Part 2 of the Christmas mini’s! I distinctly remember the twins bounding down the lane, as Eileen carefully followed in her high heeled boots. Thankfully she had her husband and son {who is almost a teenager!} following the twins. I remember giggling at their perfect outfits, one saying “Naughty” the other “Nice”. It was even cuter in person.

They enjoyed the hot chocolate and cookies, but more so, they loved playing and picking up tons of rocks. As I took pictures of Eileen and Blake, I had to do so strategically as the twins would roam into the shots. We had a great time!

houston wedding photographer c wright photography swish and flick how to guideSoul-mate photographer, you ask? Is this even possible without spending a million dollars? Yes yes yes! I have to confess I hired a wedding photographer for my wedding who I loved creatively but I don’t think she fully “got” Robert and I as a couple. Had I followed some of these rules I might have gone in another direction or approached the day differently. And that’s not to say I dislike my wedding images, they are ahhhmazing! I am just saying they could have been even better had we gotten to soul-mate level.

Price vs Quality

The first thing that happens when you start looking for a photographer is you try to find a photographer whose images you love and fall within the budget you have {hopefully} established. A budget you hopefully didn’t get from The Knot, as their cookie-cutter budgets don’t take into account people’s priorities. They said I should only spend $80 on a hotel room with a $14,000 budget, which is unrealistic. I am now off-topic!!

H’ok. So you have loosely created your budget and are trying to find a photographer that fits within there that has images the speak to you. My best advice is to figure out what kinds of wedding images speak to you. Are they dark and moody? Light and airy? Bright and colorful? This will be the best jumping off point for you to start Google searching photographers in your area. You can also go to sites like Style me Pretty, Borrowed n Blue or Wedding Chicks and look up local photographers. If these photographers are featured there you will get a good gauge on their style.

Christmas was less than a month ago {yay because uhhh I still have decorations up in the house}. This year I had them at Little G Farm as they have an awesome fence and a driveway that won’t quit! I had them styled with blankets, cute signs, hot cocoa and cookies. Thank you to Gracefully Sassy for the styling. Thank you to Good Gosh Ganache and Okie Doughkie!

The Winigers

Their son shyly said hi to me as we met, so I spent a few minutes asking him questions and finding out what he loved. That was the secret sauce! From there we were best buds during the session. They all loved the cookies and hot cocoa. It all created adorable moments!
