My favorite thing about being a destination wedding photographer would have to be making each session a unique one. I make sure that no matter where your wedding may be located, that we take time and do a sunset session.

For instance, once I was hired to go to Thailand, I knew that I had to do a session with an elephant. I mean, it’s Thailand! I couldn’t help myself! We had such an amazing time together while creating such unique images. These are photos that you don’t see from just any wedding! In fact, the elephant session is one of my favorites to date.

Battleship Texas Engagement Session


Thank You Isn’t Enough…

Battleship Texas Engagement Session – Jessi Marri Photography

Today’s post about this Battleship Texas engagement session hits very close to home for me. This session was a few weeks in the making and today I am sharing a few of my favorites with you all.  I have a huge heart for our military and I honestly can’t thank them enough for everything that they do.  They sacrifice so much to go out there to serve and protect our great country. And we want to honor that. Today and forever.

The Romance…

This amazing couple has been together for a long time. During their time together, there have been years that they have not been able to see one another. While he was stationed in Japan, he sent her a beautiful bouquet of roses and not long after she got them, he called her on FaceTime, asked if she got her flowers and popped the question. The ring was hidden inside the roses! Talk about romantic!

The Fight…

Active military couples like this one face struggles that many others out there don’t have to. For most of us, we get to go home to our loved ones every night. For our military, that’s not always the case. From time to time, they have to leave for months or years to fight for our freedom. This couple here went a few years between seeing one another, yet were so determined to stay together that they did everything in their power to make that work.

The Recognition…

We recognize how hard it is to do what our active military and veterans have done for us. It’s recognized that so much sacrifice has happened in their lives so they can fight. And we recognize that we are free, because of the brave. Today, I just want to give a special thank you to our armed forces members – current and past. So, from us to you, thank you.

Cheering You On | Houston Creatives

You’re not alone. We’re cheering you on.

As creative entrepreneurs, you have probably had times of discouragement, times of doubt, or times where you might have felt alone. As Houston creatives, you may love working from home, editing photos and answering emails with a nice cup of coffee while wearing your comfiest shirt. While all of that is great, I know I am not alone when I say that sometimes being your own boss may feel a little lonely or discouraging.

I’m here to tell you today that you are not alone. Let’s read that again – you are not alone.

Being Houston creatives, we live in a huge city – the fourth largest city in the country to be exact, so that means have an amazing outlet in our great city to network, work alongside, and lift one another up.

Maybe you’re one of the Houston creatives I’m talking about. Maybe this found you at the right time today. If that’s so, I want to share with you a couple ways how we can all stick together and lift one another up.

  1. Help Each Other
    Does someone need assistance during a photo shoot? Is someone trying to put an event together and need some extra hands? Be there for one another and assist on that shoot. Be there for one another and help put center pieces together or pick up some dirty dishes. A little bit can truly go a long way. Your efforts won’t go unnoticed.
  2. Share What You Know
    This is one of my favorites. Knowledge is a key part in the creative industry. Sharing what you know with someone else can greatly help them on their endeavors. Knowing that they have someone to turn to with questions or if they are in need of advice is something valuable.
  3. Hang Out!
    It’s okay to get out of the house or the office with some fellow Houston creatives. We all need a little time off to refuel and refocus, so getting some friend time in is crucial! I know I always feel so much better once I have some time with some loved ones!

Let’s grab a cup of coffee and hang out soon! 

Keep up with Jessi Marri Photography on Facebook and Instagram! I am always on a new photography adventure over here. Follow and let me share with you what I’m up to!

Destination Wedding Photographer

Destination Wedding Photographer

Being a destination wedding photographer in Houston, I have the opportunities to go to a lot of places. This time, it is Tulum, Mexico. The wedding of Christine and Nick’s was one that was beautiful like so many girls’ dreams. Luckily, I had the chance to witness and document their wedding as a photographer. I arrived at Dreams Resort in a stormy night but fortunately, the next morning was very gorgeous. The beach and the sky could not get anymore blue – what a destination wedding photographer’s dream!

The whole wedding was beautiful! I couldn’t stop admiring how pretty the light, the cake and the candles were. Christine did a fantastic job in planning and decorating the wedding. Even though the wedding ceremony was moved from the beach to the indoor hall, it was nothing but perfect. Looking back at the photos, a destination wedding photographer like me couldn’t be more emotional. I saw smiles, laughters, and even tears here and there. But honestly, I think the air and the breeze at Tulum made everyone looked so happy and excited overall. And the dance floor was packed most of the time and wine was continuously served. After all, Christine and Nick were the happiest couple of the night. And I could do nothing but click my camera as fast as I could and wish them the very best for their future together.

I was so lucky to be Christine and Nick’s wedding photographer. It was a wedding to remember! I cannot wait to see the next place being a destination wedding photographer takes me to!
