Chantal and Fieras had a beautiful urban wedding in the heart of downtown Houston, and Bouchet Images was honored to have been hired to document the special occasion.
Their intimate ceremony was held in a high-end living complex just aside of Discovery Green. The ceremony was officiated by the groom’s Aunt and the room was filled with family and friends from around the globe.
After the ceremony, we had more than an hour to take pictures of the family and happy couple – which was awesome. We were able to take some great shots around the pool area of the complex, where we were treated with a variety of options of backgrounds – a lot of lush green plants and palms, as well as some great spots that showcased the city scenery.
After some time there, we stole the couple away for shots in Discovery Green Park itself. A permit is required for professional photography in the park, but this is something we had discussed and planned with the clients ahead of time, and the bride had secured the permit with the city of Houston. The park had some beautiful spots for shots – but we had to move very quickly, as there were guests waiting back at the venue, and on top of that we were losing sun quickly. So we moved briskly through the park. I love the picture of the bride in front of the wheat grass, and am super pleased with the variety of shots we got with the couple. I especially like the fun, urban feel of the walking shots – be sure to check them out below.
Just a quick note about the lighting – this is always something to keep in mind when planning a wedding and setting a time for the ceremony. If you’re wanting to take pictures after the ceremony, as most couples do, be sure to schedule the start time so that there is enough light afterwards, otherwise the photographer may have to revert to using a flash (or flashes), which is fine, but not as ‘warm’ as going au-natural. Don’t be afraid to ask the photographer for their recommendation for timing.
Thank you again to Chantal and Fieras for choosing Bouchet Images for their big day!
