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.

Houston Business Headshots

Houston Photographer, Michael Carr, is creating a new blend of corporate styles for local executives seeking a competitive edge in the corporate arena. In addition to our signature business headshot sessions, many clients are requesting ¾ length portraits and portraits photographed in business casual attire. The benefit to having us photograph your session with multiple business and casual looks, is that this will help you create a personal image bank of professional portraits. By having a personal image bank with a variety of looks, today’s executive can insert images within web directories, press releases, speaking conferences and professional organization profile pages while on the go. With social media and online marketing on the rise, presenting the correct image for the right application is paramount. Most files we deliver are digital art ready when we complete your order. Should you have a special crop size, just let us know at the time of your session.

Houston Wedding Photographers

Congrats to Leslie and Peter!

Elegant Bridal Portraiture

Houston portrait photographer, Michael Carr, was commissioned earlier this year to photograph Leslie’s wedding and bridal portrait. The River Oaks Country Club was selected for the bridal portrait location. This location served as the ideal setting since the wedding reception would be held here the evening of her wedding. An area of the club was selected as our background and a 4 light location strobe setup was used in the creation of her bridal portrait images. With a mixture of ambient and studio strobes we were able to create depth and dimension utilizing camera composition, posing direction and accent lighting techniques. Leslie’s gown had incredible detailing and texture which needed to be captured and recorded accurately. Photographic flags and diffusion material helped sculpt the light to add drama and mood in her final image. We had a successful session. I must give kudos to my full time photo assistant (Lynda Marie) who helps maintain my ever changing box of photographic tools. Also, many thanks to Leslie’s mom and Angela Nix for helping and being my third set of hands.
