My Top 5 Houston Wedding Photographers

Filed in: Vendors

Hey Boss Bride!

I hope you’ve set your goals and intentions for the year already because wow, we are already one month in! And I don’t know about you but for me, the older I get…the quicker the years start to fly by. Just remember to stay the course, we’re human so don’t set the expectation that if you fall off track that you can’t get back on. Wedding planning can be a lot like that too so I don’t want to waste too much time diving into some juicy planning tips for you! The month of February we’re going to be dishing out some high-fives, because, you know…virtual high-fives are all the rage these days!

So be sure to check back each week this month for our Top 5 Recommendations for multiple vendor categories in Houston, it’s going to be lit (yep, I said it!)

Our first top is my Top 5 Wedding Photographers in Houston. Let’s see who made the cut!

Notice though, I did not say THE top 5 wedding photographers in Houston, I said MY Top 5 wedding photographers in Houston. Why? Because, bosses, there is so much more to good photography than being able to take a good photo. A Top photographer, in my opinion, is someone who can achieve objectives as a vendor partner AND as a client-focused vendor. What do I mean by that? Well a vendor partner photographer gets along well with other vendors (read: is excited to share their work with members of the vendor team from the wedding).

A client-focused photographer gets to know their couple and makes them feel comfortable. They are bursting at the seams with ideas for poses and natural interactions that will generate amazing moments caught on film. They spend time during the session making you feel comfortable, relaxed and confident. Because I will tell you…if you don’t’ feel ALL THREE of those emotions, it will come across in your pictures. And since you ONLY get to do this wedding day thing once…you really gotta get the photographer vendor selection RIGHT. 

With over 800 to choose from in Houston, it can be a pretty daunting task. But no fear, that’s what I’m here for. So without further adieu, here are my Top 5 Wedding Photographers in Houston listed below.

  1. Ellen Rene Photography
  2. Rhea Whitney Photography
  3. Civic Photos
  4. Dream Photos
  5. Ken Maurice Studios

If you are on the hunt for a photographer…be sure to reach out to them for a consult, you can’t go wrong with any of these options!
