Brittany & Bernardo’s Wedding

After over 2 decades of photographing weddings, this is the first one I’ve covered on a Tuesday!  But being educators Brittany & Bernardo decided that the Tuesday before Christmas was the best time for everyone involved.

Butler’s Courtyard is uniquely equipped for events like Weddings.  St. Mary’s (their chapel) is an actual historic church with a working old fashioned bell tower!  The brides preparation area is a beautiful and comfortable whole house with antiques all over the place.  The grooms prep area is styled in a way that any bachelor would love (even short timers).  And the meticulously decorated reception area, made from a restored historic bank, can handle small to medium sized wedding events.  To top it off, I found the staff very friendly professional and accommodating.

I hate to make this sound like a commercial for Butler’s Courtyard but Brittany & Bernardo chose an excellent place for their League City wedding.  Here’s a Photo-Video video of some of the photography my son and I created.  I’ve enhanced these images the way I would for the custom prints we create for our clients.

In this video you can see what Enhancing does for the images that come straight out of the camera.

Ready to see all the Rest of the Wedding Photography!

We have invested many hours selected and enhancing all the best Wedding images.  Our goal was to use every image that is unique and tells part of the story of the wedding.  In other words, any image that might be used in an album.  These selections can now be viewed In  Brittany & Bernardo’s Viewing and Ordering Site !

Kim & Marcus’s Brennan’s Wedding Photography

Kim & Marcus Engagement PhotoWas Sunday a beautiful day for Wedding Photography? Well, I wouldn’t mention it if it wasn’t! Kim & Marcus’s Wedding Images turned out spectacularly. I’ll be posting some of my favorite Wedding photos here once I enhance them.

Wedding Image Enhancement

What’s enhancement? I’m glad you asked. When an image comes out of the camera, it is rarely the best that it can be. On the image viewing site all the Wedding Photos are in what I call the Digital Negative state. While not technically accurate, it gets the point across that some manipulation should be done. That’s what I’ll be showing you on this posting. Usually I do what I call the 3 C’s. Adjustment of Crop, Color and Contrast. It makes a huge difference in the wedding photos and especially the prints. All of the images we print are adjusted when we receive the order then sent to the lab.

Wedding Photography Testimonial by Candace Carrington

DSC_6959_ppI met Carlos Galvan during the happiest time of my life.  I was getting married.  I located him on the internet after searching endlessly for a skilled photographer who was not only talented and creative but who would also meet my budget.  Tall order right?  Unlike many photographers who have an impressive website but fail to deliver, from the onset I was pleased with his warm and professional demeanor and his sincere concern with meeting my needs.

On the day of my wedding I was also intrigued by his creativity and ability to capture those special details that I thought that no one else would notice.  By the time my photos arrived I was over the moon.  I was amazed by his personal touch and the amount of extra work that was put into giving my husband and I the most unique photos that would last for a lifetime.  Candace & CerenityNot to mention the unexpected perks.  (You’ll just have to wait and see)

Lastly, I was so impressed with Studio Galvan that he became my family photographer.  I used him for all of my special  events both business and personal, referring all of my friends and family.  I later asked “Do you have a job for me, I would love to come work for you?”  Surprisingly he said “Yes!”

I know first hand that Carlos Galvan is one of Houston’s Best Kept Secrets.  I am not only proud to work for him, I’m also a lifelong client.

Sincerely,

Tomball Ladies

So this Ella must have been quite a lady. I remember that Tomball Hospital (Ella’s Garden is in Tomball Texas), has a tree named Ella’s Tree as well. Today Charlotte Lawrence is a lady of the day! She will become Charlotte Cantu. Hmmm, perhaps I’m being presumptuous but that’s probably the case.

Anyway, this is the website where you can view all the info about their wedding photography!
