Weddings In Houston With Jessi Marri Photography

Amazing Weddings In Houston With Jessi Marri Photography!

At Jessi Marri Photography, it’s always such an honor to capture weddings in Houston! There are still days where I have those “pinch me, I’m dreaming!” moments. And I’m sure that I’m not one of the only wedding photographers in Houston that feel the same way! With that being said, today I’m going to share a few reasons why I love photographing weddings in Houston.

1.) It’s a day unlike any other

As I’ve said in previous blogs, each wedding is different from the last. And as a wedding photographer, that keeps me on my toes! It’s so great to see the different people, details, and experience unique moments at each wedding.

Being the trusted photographer on such an important day for my couples is such an honor. It’s something that I will never take for granted!

2.) All of the beautiful details

With each wedding being different, this means that each couple has chosen different details to display at their wedding. Wedding photographers in Houston love details! These are important things to capture for us to help best tell your wedding day story! We know that so much planning and preparation went into this magical day, so we want to help preserve it all for you.

3.) Moments stopped in time

“Photography is about a single point of a moment. It’s like stopping time. As everything gets condensed in that forced instant. But if you keep creating these points, they form a line which reflects your life.” – Nobuyoshi Araki

When you take a photo, that moment is forever. That’s why it’s so important to have a wedding photographer capture your big day. You are able to go back, years down the road, and relive the moment you shared your first kiss, hugged your dad, or danced with your niece when she was young. It’s the things that matter in life that I capture, and a reason why I love what I do. Helping my couples dreams come true is a feeling I can’t describe!

There are more reasons why you should invest in Houston wedding photography, but just remember how important it is and will be on your wedding day!

Your Go-To For Bell Tower Wedding Photography

Beautiful Bell Tower Wedding Photography With Jessi Marri Photography

When planning a wedding that’s taking place at the beautiful Bell Tower On 34th, wedding photography in Houston is one of the of the most important vendors to invest in. When searching for your Bell Tower wedding photography team, it’s important to keep the following questions in mind…

1.) “Is their style what I’m looking for?”

There are so many different styles of photography. And with wedding photography in Houston, you’re bound to see so much variety. It’s so important that you find something that catches your eye. Something that you can envision displaying in your home for a lifetime. With Jessi Marri Photography as your wedding photographer, I guarantee brilliant, beautiful, and amazing quality in every image I create!

I was so happy to work with Chelsea and create these timeless bridal portraits featured here today. They were taken at her beautiful wedding venue, The Bell Tower On 34th. It makes me, as her photographer, so happy to have had the opportunity to get to know her better and work with her before the wedding.

2.) “Am I going to get along with them?”

This is one of the most important things to keep in mind when searching for your go-to Bell Tower wedding photography company. Your wedding photographer is someone that you’re going to spend a lot of time with. With everything from your engagement session, bridal session, and your wedding day – definitely connect with the photographers that you’re interested in and see how you interact with one another.

*Pro tip: This is another reason why we push the importance of doing an engagement session! You get the opportunity to work with your photographer before your wedding and shake off those camera jitters if you’re not in front of the camera a lot!

3.) “Have they done a wedding at my venue before?”

A lot of times, as long as you like your photographer and trust them, they’re going to do a great job no matter where your wedding is. But this is always a great question to ask! If they have photographed a wedding at your venue before, that’s wonderful! They may already have a list of spots that they like to use and you can see their photos from that location. If not, that’s still okay! You’ve seen their work and know that they are going to do a great job. And this gives your photographer the opportunity to experience a wedding at a new location. Also, you can always give your photographer the option to stop by your venue and check it out before hand and scope out the best spots!

When searching for your Bell Tower wedding photographer, keep Jessi Marri Photography in mind!

Capturing Your Memories With A Maine Photographer

Capturing Your Important Memories With A Maine Photographer

There are so many important memories that take place throughout your life. Family vacations, weddings, spending time with loved ones. And for most parents, a lot of the memories that you want to remember are the ones with your kiddos. There are times as they grow up that you will want to share the “remember when…” moments and that is where a Maine photographer comes into help. As a photographer who loves what she does, there’s nothing like helping families cherish those memories for a lifetime.

Here are a few reasons why it’s important to capture your memories with a Maine photographer…

• They grow up so fast!

You’ve probably heard every parent say, “they grow up so fast!” And it’s true! As time ticks by, it seems as though the years are just flying by at the speed of light when you take a look back. That’s why it’s so important to me as a Maine photographer to help families freeze those moments with photography that they can look back on and display in their home for years to come.

• Remembering the good times.

There are times in life when things aren’t so glamorous or easy. That’s part of this journey. But one thing is certain… You can take a look back at some of your wonderful family photos and remember how you felt that day, and just how truly lucky you all are to have one another.

• Every special moment

Photography is the rare art form that helps stop a moment in time. Photography helps you capture memories from the moment your baby takes their first breath to the time that they are off to college or getting married!

We believe photography to be one of the most important investments that you can make. If you’re searching for a Maine photographer to help create memories for you and your family, you’ve come to the right place!

Why Houston Bridal Photography Is So Vital To Your Wedding!

Why Houston Bridal Photography Is So Vital For You Before Your Big Day!

Throughout the years, I have taken pictures of many happy couples and happy brides. However, there is one thing that I find that many brides regret not getting – bridal portraits! Houston bridal photography is something that many people overlook and see as unnecessary, but that could not be further from the truth. No, it’s not putting on the veil, walking down the aisle, Or “The Kiss,” it’s something entirely of it’s own. It’s a chance to showcase your beauty, and it also lets you get more out of your wedding day.

Enjoy More Of Your Wedding

On your wedding day there is so much to do in such a finite amount of time. We as photographers will be there for you to make your day run as smooth as possible. Of courses there’s is always time to get bridals during your big day, but it just helps to do them ahead of time. We understand that you want to celebrate your special day and get the best pictures possible. By setting up a bridal session, you are getting the whole experience with your wedding photographer – which is something you won’t regret! Hiring a Houston bridal photographer will also allow you to free up some of your time on your wedding day.

Get The Most Out Of Your Photos And Your Wedding Photographer 

Doing a bridal session can be a big advantage to your wedding day. It allows your photographer more freedom to capture the perfect picture. Also, it lets your photographer get to know more about you, and help you become more comfortable with being in front of the camera. A lot like an engagement session, a bridal session will also get you more comfortable in front of a camera so that way you will feel much more natural on your wedding day.

Location, Location, Location… 

Have you ever stopped somewhere and thought “this would be the best place to take pictures.” If you have, then I can not stress enough how much you should have a bridal session. Say your venue is very formal, but you want to take bridals in a tall field of grass during a sunset. Or if you want a more urban look for your bridal photos, you could take them downtown near a giant water fountain or with the skyline. The amount of ideas are limitless.

Getting Ready For Your Destination Wedding Photography

Destination Wedding Photography & How To Best Prepare

A lot of preparation goes into planning for destination wedding photography. Sure, it sounds like that may be a difficult task, but it really isn’t! It is actually one of the best parts about being destination wedding photographers. As I share with you some beautiful photos from Katelyn and Tom’s wedding at the Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa, you will walk away with great information on preparing for your destination wedding photography!

1.) Decisions, decisions…

One of the really important decisions you will come across when planning your destination wedding will be your photographer. Do you hire the resort photographer? Do you bring one along with you? Ultimately, that is up to you! But just know, it isn’t the best idea to have both there photographing your wedding. It’s best to stick with just one company so there is consistency all around!

2.) Scheduling!

Even at a destination wedding, there will be a timeline. And with that, it’s necessary to go over your wedding schedule with your photographer in advance. This helps everyone out and ensures that the day will run smoothly!

3.) More than just one session!

You’re probably thinking, “wait, we get more photos than just the ones from our wedding day?!” That’s right! This is one of my favorite things about being a destination wedding photographer! I always make sure to tell my couples to prepare themselves to put their wedding attire back on and do one more session within the 48-hours following their wedding!

You’re traveling to a unique place for your wedding, the most important time in your life, why not get all of the photos that you can?

Did you know that destination wedding photography isn’t as expensive as you may think? Get in touch with us today and let’s chat about your upcoming destination wedding!

Russell reached out to us to inquire about taking photos of the special moment that’s featured here on today’s blog. And we couldn’t help but jump on board with his plan! He planned their proposal to take place at the Water Wall in Houston. There, he dropped to one knee to ask the love of his life for her hand in marriage.

Engagement photography is such an important thing to consider when looking for your photographer. Here are a few reasons why Houston engagement photography is something that you will want to invest in.

Does Your Photographer Offer Both Engagement And Wedding Services?

Most wedding photographers also offer engagement sessions. It’s pretty common, to be honest. It comes in a majority of wedding photo packages. It gives you and your photographer the chance to meet again after your consultation, or for the first time if you hired them over the phone, and see how they work before the wedding day.

Shake Off The Camera Jitters!

For most, being in front of the camera isn’t something that happens everyday. So, you may be thinking about photography before and during your wedding and possibly get nervous. No need to worry! Hiring a team of professionals will definitely set you up for success and make you feel incredibly comfortable. Investing in Houston engagement photography is a great chance for you to get comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day comes around!

We all have those outfits that make us feel like a million bucks. This is the perfect opportunity for you get all fancy, spend the day with your fiancé, and take some beautiful pictures that you can share with friends and family and use for Save The Dates!

Your Wedding Portraits With Your Wedding Photographers Houston

The Important Things To Consider When Planning For Your Wedding Portraits With Your Wedding Photographers Houston

There are a lot of things to consider when you’re planning your wedding. With the many weddings I have photographed, I’ve worked with many different and unique timelines. And if there’s one important piece of advice I can give to every couple planning their wedding, it’s this – listen to your wedding photographers Houston about the timing they will need for your wedding portraits.

Today, I want to inform and encourage you about why this is so important.

Each couple is special. We don’t want to miss a thing.

As wedding photographers, we try not to ask for too much. We really just want to make your wedding day run as smoothly as it possibly can while capturing each moment in a creative way. We are storytellers. It is our passion to live that out and not miss a thing during your wedding day. With the connection we make with each couple we work with, the importance of each wedding we photograph, and the uniqueness that each couple holds, we desire to capture just that – your love, your story, your special day, and those special moments of just the two of you, before or after the ceremony. As you can see in Crystal and Richard’s wedding portraits featured here today, we had time on our side to get such an amazing variety of photos for them to cherish and display in their home!

Whether you’re doing a first look or not, time for your portraits IS possible.

Trust your wedding photographer.

Your wedding photographers Houston are one of the most important investments you’ll be making for your wedding… These are people that you want to trust to perfectly photograph your day. When you’re meeting for a consultation, which I highly recommend doing, and going over any timeline details, that’s when we go over the amount of time needed to do portraits of just the two of you – whether you’re doing a first look or not.

These are the wedding portraits that you will be displaying throughout your home for the years to come. It’s very important to have a nice variety of images to choose from.

You don’t want to rush on your wedding day!

No one wants to rush, or feel rushed, on their most special day! That’s why it’s so important to plan for the perfect amount of time to photograph those special images of just you two. When looking at your timeline and going over it with your wedding photographers Houston, the allotted time may seem like a lot, or maybe not enough, but like stated previously, trust your wedding photographer. They know what they are doing and it’s important to them to help make this day more amazing than it already is!

Rushing around on such an important day isn’t any good for anyone involved. Your photographer wants to stick to your timeline as much as possible! Having this planned out in advance is important for everyone – bride and groom, planners, DJ’s, and everyone who is excited to greet you and show their support!

Knowing What You Like For Your Wedding Photography | Best Wedding Photographer Houston

Lighting And Knowing What You’re Looking For In Your Best Wedding Photographer Houston

As many people may know, there are various styles of wedding photography. And that’s a great thing because no two couples are the same. Different styles of photography speak to different couples. As a best wedding photographer Houston, I’ve honed in on my craft and have found my style in an ever-changing industry. Although I’m always learning new things, being educated in different lighting techniques is something I’m very proud of.

Here are a few reasons why it’s important that your wedding photographer can use both natural and off-camera lighting well.

1.) The importance of different lighting techniques.

Photographers love the natural light. I’m one of them! But to me, there’s nothing like adding in some creative factors with my lights that I bring to each wedding with me. It’s important for each couple to really like the work that a photographer produces before hiring them. You can see in the images featured today. I was able to create a different look in the same location, one with natural light and one with my lights. And I adore both images! It’s incredibly important that a photographer knows how to use both lighting techniques well seeing as how the lighting and scenarios will change throughout the day.

2.) Knowing what you like better.

Your wedding photos are going to be treasures that you will look at for the rest of your life. You’re going to print them and put them on display for all to see. And you want to like what you put in your home! When you’re searching for your best wedding photographer Houston, you want to imagine that you can see their work in your home for a lifetime. And of course, these are questions that you can ask photographers as you’re searching for the right one.

“What lighting to you use? Natural light or off-camera lighting?”
“Can you do both?”
“My reception is at nighttime, will you be able to photograph that?

Those are just a few examples that any Houston wedding photographer should be able to confidently answer for you.

I hope this post helps you as you are searching for the best wedding photographer Houston for your wedding! Remember to keep Jessi Marri Photography in mind!

Give me a call or send me an email today. I’d love to hear about your big day!

The Importance Of Getting Ready Images | Austin Wedding Photographer

Why Getting Ready Images At Each Wedding Are Important | Austin Wedding Photographer

I’ve captured weddings all over the world as a destination wedding photographer. And one thing remains the same at each one I’ve photographed… There is importance in spending time with the couple separately to ensure that each detail is being photographed before they make their way down the aisle. Being an Austin wedding photographer, I experienced the importance of that again recently during the wedding featured here today.

Here are a few reasons why it’s so important for you to make sure your wedding photographer gets these moments.

1.) Memories with those closest to you.

The moments before your wedding begins are usually the most intimate ones. You’re spending time with your family and your closest friends as you get ready to say your “I do’s” to the love of your life. Not only do these images help tell the story of your wedding day, but they are a reminder of the time you spent having fun, and getting ready with your favorite people all around you.

2.) Details, details, details…

As you can see in some of the images featured here from Caroline and Bobby’s Austin wedding, being there before the ceremony began ensured that my team and I had plenty of time to get all the important details around the venue. This includes the details of what the couple will be wearing! So, getting those ring shots, the dresses on the hangers, and the sweet moments of the bride getting in her gown, are just timeless images to help you remember the amazing details of the wedding day.

3.) Remembering how you felt.

As an Austin wedding photographer, it’s important to me that I photograph the intimate moments and how everyone feels. There’s nothing like capturing a reaction of a bride reading a letter from her groom. Or the moment she does a first look with her dad. Having those memories in photographs is truly a treasure worth holding on to.

While looking for a destination wedding photographer, keep Jessi Marri Photography in mind! With experience and my bags ready to go, you can trust that I will be there every step of the way!

A Day In The Life Of A Houston Wedding Photographer – Jessi Marri Photography – Best Houston Wedding Photographer

A Day In The Life Of A Houston Wedding Photographer

Jessi Marri Photography – Best Houston Wedding Photographer

Being the best Houston wedding photographer, there are a lot of things that go in to preparing for a wedding. Today, not only am I sharing beautiful images from Jennifer and Adrian’s wedding that took place at The Dunlavy, but I’m sharing a little about the day in the life of a Houston wedding photographer.

1.) We double and triple check our gear.

As a wedding photographer, I bring a lot of camera equipment with me. With that, I’m sure I can speak for every photographer that we double check and triple check our bags to make sure we have absolutely everything we need for your special day! A day or so before, we are checking cards, charging batteries, cleaning lenses, etc. Doing everything we can to make sure our gear is ready to go! We want to ensure that in transitional parts of the day, everything on our end is going to run smoothly.

2.) Details and getting ready.

Each wedding, details, and the moments they hold, all vary from one another. No wedding day is exactly the same. That’s what makes our job so great! Although, yes, we know what shots we need to get, images will vary from wedding to wedding. One of our favorite things besides taking photos of the couples by themselves is the beginning of the day when everyone is getting ready and when we can get the details, such as your venue before everyone gets there, up close photos of the dresses, and center pieces!

3.) Our excitement is real!

Yes, it’s true! I love my job as the best Houston wedding photographer! After working with our couples for a good amount of time before the wedding, when the day comes around, we are thrilled to see, work with, and create beautiful images for our couples!

We want to make sure that you are taken care of on your wedding day! Keep Jessi Marri Photography in mind for all of your Houston wedding photography needs!
