Ramos Wedding {Houston Wedding Photography}

by Kyle Smith

I had the opportunity to photograph the wedding of Candace Smith (well, now Candace Ramos), one my childhood friends, last month, and it was great getting to be a part of the festivities. The day started off in Deer Park at Hair Palace where the ladies all got their hair done. After everyone was all styled up, myself and my other photographer started the trip up to Tomball.

The wedding was on the picturesque, 24-acre Oakland Farm and Ranch in Tomball, TX. We were able to do all the pre-wedding shooting in the comfort of the nicely air-conditioned 5 bedroom Ranch House while all the guests gathered outside around the waterfall and Koi pond where the outdoor ceremony was held.  Instead of doing all the formal shots at the Koi pond (where the bride and groom stood for the ceremony) I decided to do them along the nice farm fence with the trees and open field as the backdrop. I think it really added to the rustic-country feel of the wedding and showcased the facilities nicely.

After the ceremony, Candace and Buddy rode over to the reception via horse and carriage (the same one Candace and her father arrived to the ceremony on). And I can honestly say it was the first wedding reception where almost every guest got up and joined in on the festivities, filling the entire dance floor. I’ve got to give props to the DJ for doing a great job on getting everyone involved. Here are some photos from the day…Congrats to Candace and Buddy Ramos!

Cook Wedding [Sneak Peek]

by Kyle Smith

I had the pleasure to photograph the Cook’s on their wedding day. It was a beautiful wedding on the beach, and, despite severe flooding the day before, the day had perfect weather. It was a privilege to help capture the day both of their families came together and became one. I also got to shoot the wedding with my cousin Abby who did a fantastic job! Here are some sneak peaks from the day.KissThe FamilyMarshaHandsMarsha

KSP Wedding Albums – {Houston Wedding Photographer}

by Kyle Smith

With the way technology has expanded over the past few years, often a CD with all the images from the wedding is all that’s desired. You can upload them to Facebook, send them to Walgreens and email them to family members. This has been the case for the majority of my clients but recently many brides have been requesting custom wedding albums, which has led to me expanding what is offered in some of KSP’s wedding collections. Even if you do not choose a collection that has an album included you always have the option to have one made up to a year after your wedding. I’m actually glad that these are becoming more popular because they’re a blast to create. It allows me to really help tell the story of your day. And although, I’d love to take full credit for all my design ideas, my wife comes up with some pretty good ideas too (including the album page below). Here’s an online example of a wedding album I recently created.

Dallas and College Station bridal portraits…

by Kyle Smith

Here are some bridal photos from weddings that I’ve done over the past few years in College Station and Dallas. Photographing weddings is probably one of the most stressful, yet rewarding, parts of photography. There’s just something special about being a part of someone’s life story and being able to provide them with the life long memories through photographs. Enjoy!
