Michael Carr Photography bio picture
  • Houston photographers Michael Carr, CPP, and Lisa Carr, CPP, specialize in portraiture and event photography. With over 20 years of experience photographing people, our area of expertise ranges from corporate executives to family portraiture. Our portrait services include professional business headshots for many Fortune 500 companies in our Metropolitan area. Real estate business portraits or corporate executive portraits are photographed in our studio or on location in your corporate headquarters.

    In addition to photographing business professionals, we are well known for event coverage for weddings and wedding portraiture such as engagement portraits and bridal portraiture. Many of the weddings we have photographed have been published in magazines such as Weddings in Houston, The Knot, Modern Luxury and InStyle Weddings. Having personally photographed over 500 weddings, our style of coverage has led us to many venues around Houston. Several clients have also contracted us to travel and join their families as their destination wedding photographer.

    We have continued to expand our portraiture services as our clients’ families grow in various stages of life. For example: baby portraiture, children’s portraits, high school senior portraits and family portraits are services we offer. Lisa and I would like to thank you for visiting our new Blog site, www.michaelcarrphotography.com, which is an ongoing creative portfolio.

Houston Bridal Portrait Photographer

Houston bridal portrait photographer, Michael Carr, recently photographed Courtney’s bridal portrait on location. We met Courtney in 2008 when we photographed her sister’s wedding in Houston. When we were talking with Courtney about her vision for her bridal portrait, she knew she wanted a different location than her sister’s and she wanted it to compliment her gown. She also wanted flexibility with indoor options and outdoor options. We suggested a private location for her bridal portraits in Houston. She had many options for her final Bridal Portraits. One of these portraits is hanging in her parent’s home, and Courtney also has her own bridal portrait hanging in her home. Special thanks to the local vendors that helped with her portrait: Corinne with Façade Uptown did an outstanding job with her makeup and Plants n Petals designed her bridal bouquet.

Houston Female Business Portraits

Michael Carr Photography recently photographed Kristyn, a Houston area business executive, for her press release photos that were to be used online as well as for print. Kristyn was going to be featured in CRN- 2015 Women of the Channel, and they requested a recent headshot of her. Before Michael photographed Kristyn, he discussed with her how she would be using her corporate headshot and the message she wanted to convey through her business portrait. Based on her marketing and p/r needs, we all agreed it would be best to have a few different poses and facial expressions included in her business portrait session: a business headshot as well as a ¾ length pose. It is always best to have a variety of expressions and poses to select from your headshot session so you can meet and be prepared for those last minute advertising and press release deadlines. As you can see from the two images shown above, each business portrait has different expressions yet both exhibit confidence.

Michael Carr Photography specializes in business headshots and business portraits for today’s executive professionals. To learn more about our studio and portrait photography for your business portraits and family portraits, visit here or call 713-461-2862.

Colorado Wedding Photography

Houston based wedding photographers, Michael and Lisa Carr, recently photographed Courtney & Bryan’s destination wedding in Vail, Colorado. We have known Courtney and her family for many years, since we photographed her sister’s wedding almost 8 years ago. We were so honored they asked us to photograph Courtney’s wedding, at a secluded resort outside Beaver Creek!

The wedding and reception were both at The Ritz Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. The outdoor ceremony had breathtaking mountain views and clear blue skies. The candlelit reception was indoors, and after the seated dinner the guests danced the night away and enjoyed sweets at the custom desert station. Congratulations Courtney & Bryan, here is a sneak peek of images from your wedding.
