What a joyous day, the uniting of families. The groom not only marries his bride but marries her family as well. Such a gracious showing of humility and good vibes thru-out... Congrats to J & Z on their beautiful union.
Wow!!! Breath-taking bridal photo session w/ Sumiko at the beautiful Chateau Polonez in Houston... I had known Sumiko for quite some time and I knew she would definitely bring the heat... Is heat, even the right word? This was a lava hot session... With the venue to ourselves, the slayage began as soon as the veil was set... Congratulations to Sumiko!!!
Stunning, gorgeous, ravishing... Luxe, Chic... All words that can be used to describe this San Souci Ballroom wedding.... More importantly the love and joy of two souls.... We witnessed some serious choreographed dancing from the bridal party with Nigerian flair.... From the moment the reception started, very few people were in their seats... I must admit, at one point it felt like a production!! Many praises & thanks to A Conceal Affair for planning a marvelous event!!! Congrats to S + C on their heartfelt union.
Sometimes, us Houston Wedding Photographers experience weddings that seem to be going thru the motions. We honestly try to avoid those couples. In a wedding, my advice to any couple it to live it up and enjoy the moment. At Sugar Creek Country Club we experienced joy and excitement from Banke + Henry... Having shot the traditional wedding a couple days before, I knew that there was a fond love for dancing and great music!!! Congratulations once again!!!
Traditional Nigerian wedding ceremonies are loads of fun... The traditional wedding is always a joy to be apart of. The families of the bride and groom come together and playfully negotiate the giving away of the bride to the groom. A home atmosphere laid down the foundation for everyone to be relaxed and partake in the joy of the occasion. we are so used to brides being stressed and this was the opposite for Banke and Henry. They were dancing and cracking jokes before the moments and were all smiles all day long. Houston had endured one of its many hard rains and floods that night but it stopped nothing...... To be continued.. Look for the white wedding ceremony coming soon.
Everyone who has been in a wedding has always dreaded the wedding ceremony and couldn't wait to get to the reception!! Why?? Food, Fun, and Laughter!! Probably food but a chance to dance the night away!!! For that, there is nothing like a Nigerian Wedding in Houston!!! The intensity is so real, people literally get elbowed ( gently ) so I can get my shots in.. Nigerian Wedding Receptions present a unique challenge because everyone in the family comes to celebrate... I absolutely love it and cherish the opportunity to get the most memorable shots possible. Here are some shots from a recent wedding at the Tuscany Villa in Katy, Texas. Thanks to Ed for allowing me an opportunity to capture the moments.
HOW ROMANTIC UPLIGHTING CAN TRANSFORM YOUR HOUSTON WEDDING RECEPTION VENUE | DANIEL T DAVIS PHOTOGRAPHY
Lighting and uplifting at Weddings is something that is easily overlooked during the planning process. Have you ever went to a hotel ballroom and looked at the pale brown walls and aging ceilings. One simple effective way to spruce up your wedding reception is to provide uplifting and drapery. Being a Houston Wedding Photographer who loves drama, those romantic shots that brides love is only made even more beautiful with a stunning backdrop complimented by sweet lighting. In this post, you will see some examples of how uplifting can bring out the best in your wedding.
Tremont House Galveston is an astonishing place for a wedding, if you love something vintage and classy, I think its a great fit. Reminds me of being in the French Quarter but still in Texas. I was an associate on this wedding. What I really want to focus on is that moments matter... There is notthing like capturing the pure energy and emotion of a bride and the guests.. Yes, a lot of those guest reactions, you will only see later after the big day has passed and gone.. Even our nervous groom was having all types of nerves before the wedding. He refused to put his tie on until the ceremony lol.. It was truly a gem and I can't wait for another opportunity to shoot in Galveston again!!!
Sometimes God reveals things to you that you don't understand. Galveston Beach has been rainy and windy the entire day up until about 2 hours until the wedding. Just enough to dry out the sand so Kellyn & Tim could make vows unto one another. The lesson is you will have moments and days like this where it appears to be going downhill and at that very moment, the sun is revealed and the clouds part... Everyone was really happy and filled with joy... It's always a blessing to see your entire family and friends happy for you... Congrats to Kellyn & Tim...
The day has finally come. Noah's Event Venue Sugarland provides a big punch in a small package. Everything was peaceful and relaxed. No stress or nerves thru-out the day.. Everything was elegant and the quest were genuinely happy for Lakeesha and Warren.. There was turn-up involved as there was a impromptu dance off to "Hit the Quan".. It was actually pretty intense... Saw some lovely moments shared and laughter was abundant. Congrats once again!!!
The Parador in Houston provided a picturesque garden wedding scene that set the tone. It was truly a gem that complimented Elena & Justin perfectly. Everything was truly stunning and elegant... Coral for beauty and gold for chic.. I was so happy for them and they everyone who came to the wedding were genuine and happy for the newlyweds... It was an honor to capture these moments.... Cherish them and congrats once again!!
Its not everyday that I shop for clothes nor walk into Saks 5th Avenue in the Galleria area of Houston. But there is always an exception to the rule. The whole idea originated from Alycia and David not wanting to be seen. They were going to make a big grand entrance a few minutes later. So we snuck out the back door of 51fifteen restaurant. Amidst a few observers and shoppers, love was expressed and shared. Alycia and David had just tied the knot in Barbados and wanted to share their joy with family and friends. The night was full of laughs and good times. No stress, pressure or nerves!! Congrats once again!!!
The Bougainvilleas Houston is a hidden gem for a wedding. Literally, the venue is surrounded by the beautiful vines and colorful magenta flower petals. Enough of that, I always look for emotion and people who are enjoying life. We found some of that in Candace & Jeffrey.. Candace was nervous and Jeffrey had some beverages prior to help him along the way lol.. They left all that behind once they were together in the aisle for all to see. You can see it in their eyes how they celebrated triumph. Congrats once again!!
Wow.. During my wedding I had looked at Chateau Crystale in Houston for my venue.. I don't remember it quite like it was at this wedding. It was a joy to capture two souls that were happy to have made it to this level. The energy was definately flowing from the guests to the bridal party.. Vonkisha look sensational in her wedding dress and we kept everything sophisticated and classy... Rashadd kept it GQ. I'm always grateful to see what will come out of a wedding.. Truly pleased and happy for these guys. Congrats once again!!
A splendid peacock theme wedding took place at the Gardens Houston.. Amongst the myriad of colorful dresses and the splendid cascade bouquet was a couple getting ready to enjoy a day never to forget. Strangely no one was really showing a lot of nervousness.. I could still tell however, you could see the look on Richard's face when he walked down to the altar.. Like the day was finally there, and Frances was looking fabulously gorgeous. I knew the Delta Sigma Thetas would be in droves at the wedding but I have to take time out to talk about those heels.. Congratulations once again to Frances & Richard.
