Romantic beach receptions...I’m in, every time! One pull away from Covid has been living and doing with what’s necessary and available without all the extras. Meaning, a pantry not filled with all your favorite things, enjoying what you have around you, and smaller gatherings with the people that mean the most to you. Parties are fun, weddings are amazingly awesome, but what matters most is celebrating the love, whether with 5 people or 500. . .

Such a fun twist for this ceremony install. I love the way it is both a bit retro and modern at the same time. Photographing this took me back to art school days where anything you imagine can be real. I can’t think of any better way to plan a wedding than to infuse your own personality into it! . . . . . . . . .

Today we're showing you how to add variety to your brand images using just ONE object in your photos. For this particular subject topic, we're using @whiskbakeryhouston blueberry muffins as the object. Carla whipped up her famous blueberry muffins and we shot it 5 different ways, giving her the opportunity to showcase ONE item FIVE different ways without boring her audience. - Booking a brand session with Lightbulb League is so much more than photographing your products. It's also an investment into the ideas we bring to the table for your brand session. We are now booking sessions! Please feel free to reach out if you're looking for brand photos. - #brandphotography #personalbrandphotography #brandphotographer #filmphotographer #pentax645n #ishootfujifilm #fuji400h #lifestylefilm #houstonbrandphotographer #houstonbrandphotography #houstonfilmphotographer

My absolute favorite moment from L+N’s elopement was their first look and the reading of their vows/notes to each other. This is why I love private moments whether it’s a wedding day or a 6 person celebration - these are always, always my favorite (for obvious reasons - I mean LOOK AT THEM 😍)

This entire session 🔥😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Of all the engagement sessions I’ve photographed here at @arrowheadhill, Ally + Daniel were the first to ever request using the pond for a canoe ride at sunset! And of course, I was 💯💯💯 ok with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ally put a lot of thought and intention into their engagement session, she wanted it to really reflect them as a couple and i loved helping her bring that vision to life! This session stretched me creatively to think and see differently through the lens and as a result, their session has some of my favorite images I’ve ever taken! What a joy these two are, the energy and adventurous spirit these two share is amazing ✨🥂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #courtneyleighphotography #clpweddings #houstonweddingphotographer #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonphotographer #austinweddingphotographer #dallasweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #destinationweddingphotographer #editorialphotographer #editorial #film #portra400 #contax645 #filmphotographer #luxurywedding #luxuryweddingphotographer #fineartphotography #fineartfilm #family #familyphotographer #fineartweddingphotographer #filmcommunity #kodak #fineartphotographer #mediumformatfilm #editorial #engagements #engaged

A little backstory ... we are the kind of people who like to be on the move, we always say ... don’t stay in a house longer than 5 years. And yet, we totally have stayed much longer, multiple times. So *some* of us were feeling convinced it was time for a move, time to downsize. We found a new home to build, but our house hadn’t sold, so timing was bad and that house went to someone else. Now our house is under contract, but we have zero idea where we want to be. It’s surreal.(but what about 2020 hasn’t been surreal?) Looking for a sign from the heavens. :) . . In the meantime, a summer beach rental is sounding pretty amazing. Searching airbnb for some long term stays! . . #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonfilmphotographers #houstonweddingphotographer #summerbeachstay #destinationweddingphotographer #elopementphotographer #microweddingphotographer #smallweddingphotographer #intimateweddingphotographer #amalficoast #amalficoastitaly #amalficoastwedding #travelphotography #filmphotographer

Currently trying to complete at least one of the many home projects I’ve started since we’ve been at home. Whose with me on redesigning/organizing/cleaning/redoing ALL the things?! I’ve had this big Prada sign for about 6 years ever since my sweet friend gifted it to me for my birthday and I don’t have it in me to not have it hung, but I’m feeling like a painting will be better in this space. Opinions. Concerns? Send them to me 😂👏🏼 Also someone talk me into not getting rid of this green couch. It feels so dark in my bright little room. Office reveal will be coming so soon, 💗 once I actually finish trying to clean out all the messes I made along the way. What’s everyone up to today?

So excited to celebrate tomorrow at our first big wedding in months. It’ll be new for all of us, but excited that love is bringing everyone together ♥️ . . Venue @thefarmhouseevents Planning @lovebirdsvintage Beauty @mistyrockwellartistry Florals @brambleandbee Film @goodmanfilmlab

Time for a #fridayintroduction ! . . Hi! I’m Marni, photographer, traveler, educator, design-lover, açaí bowl aficionado, wife & mom: 1️⃣ I like to go for long walks - been doing lots of that during quarantine (but long walks on the beach would be better). 2️⃣ 2020 is the first time I ever decided to like sushi (raw fish and seaweed aren’t on my list of things to enjoy, lol but I found the ones with avocado, carrot, cucumber in rice paper, that’s totally my jam) 3️⃣ I am forever either too hot or too cold, usually too cold ... until Houston summers! Whew. When the weather is nice, I am the most appreciative person on the planet! 4️⃣ I am currently house hunting ... more on that later! 5️⃣ I just started a little local fb group for Houston area film photographers, if you are one of such photographers, let me know! I would love to send over an invite. We can talk nerdy things like metering for cloudy days and which film stock is better ... #portra400 or #fuji400h Thanks for taking the time to stop in and say a virtual hello! I’d love to hear what you’re up to, get to know you! . . . . . . #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonfilmphotographers #houstonweddingphotographer #houstonweddingfilmphotographer #houstonwngagementphotographer #houstoncouplesphotographer #destinationweddingphotographer #destinationweddingfilmphotographer #intimateelopementphotographer #elopementphotographer #elopementweddingphotographer #microweddingphotographer #smallweddingphotographer #tuesdaystogether #communityovercompetition #houstonfilmphotographersgroup #traveltheworld #seetheglobe 📷 @pureplush

The Story of Us is now LIVE and I am so excited to share it with you all! This logo and branding was created for me by @beecreativeco and I couldn’t be more grateful. That little house is a representation of some of my favorite memories and people growing up. It’s the home my nana and papa still live in today. To check out the new site, click the link in bio ✨ Email me from the contact form on our website before 9 pm tonight and you’ll receive $100 off a session that can be booked anytime between now and August ✨ . This brand is such a huge piece of my heart. From the time I was little, I was drawn to the power of photography and the way a photograph could stir up long-forgotten memories and feelings. I loved looking at old pictures of family, friends, vacations, holidays…I liked how they made me feel. I watch my children now flip through the polaroid albums I've put together over the last few years and each time they are equally as delighted, reminiscing on the things they remember from that day, and asking questions about the photographs they don't. This brand is about creating these types of photographs for you and your family. I can’t wait to work with you. 🤍

Avery Grace, my first born by 8 minutes. She’s every bit of her Daddy’s daughter, strong willed and tender hearted. Her freckles are my favorite. Ask Av what she wants to be when she grows up and she’ll say “an astronaut or a circus trapeze artist... I can’t decide yet” 😊️ she’s witty, very inquisitive, and uses big words far beyond her years at just the right time, an old soul for sure. She notices the tiniest of details that most would overlook. She was a darling baby but growing into such a beautiful young girl. I often feel like my heart is being pulled in two different directions, a constant tension of wanting to go back in time and excited to watch their lives unfold in the direction that God has planned. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lab: @photovisionprints ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #courtneyleighphotography #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #houstonweddingphotographer #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonphotographer #austinweddingphotographer #dallasweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #destinationweddingphotographer #editorialphotographer #makeportraits #film #portra400 #contax645 #filmphotographer #fineartphotography #fineartfilm #family #familyphotographer #fineartweddingphotographer #filmcommunity #kodak #fineartphotographer #mediumformatfilm #blcommunity #childhoodunplugged #childhood

I think in another life, I'd really enjoy being a flower farmer. 🌸 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you keep up with my Gardening stories at all, then you know I started growing my own flowers from seeds when quarantine started in March. I figured there was no better time to start pursuing a little dream I've always had of having my own cut flower garden. I started really small but it's amazing how much joy those little zinnias and cosmos bring me! I think gardening is such a rewarding process, especially if your love for flowers runs deep like mine. I look forward to checking on the progress each morning and watering the beautiful blooms every evening. I don’t actually know what I’m doing, just learning and growing, a place to escape and clear my head, and of course, I photograph them every chance I get. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Florals: @maxitflowerdesign Lab: @photovisionprints ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #courtneyleighphotography #clpweddings #houstonweddingphotographer #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonphotographer #austinweddingphotographer #dallasweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #destinationweddingphotographer #editorialphotographer #editorial #film #portra400 #contax645 #filmphotographer #luxurywedding #luxuryweddingphotographer #fineartphotography #fineartfilm #florals #florist #fineartweddingphotographer #filmcommunity #kodak #fineartphotographer #mediumformatfilm #realwedding #bride #blooms

Well hello there, friend! It’s been a while since I’ve shown my face around here, and I’m not going to lie for a second I thought it was Friday today (whoops!). I can’t lie, this whole stay at home, work being on wonky schedules, and just general life has felt so weird these past few months - maybe it’s the masks we have to wear everywhere? In any case, the personal aspect of my business is very important to me, so here’s my face probably laughing at my husband or something @britnideanphotography said. . What are some things you’ve been loving about quarantine? I’ll start! . 1. The extra quality time with my hubs for sure (although he’s still working the same amount being a first responder), but wedding reschedules means more free weekends with him! . 2. Discovering new shows (hello Madam Secretary on Netflix) . 3. A slower pace to every day life . 4. Treasuring quality time with friends and family a lot more than we used to (although it is my love language and is always, always important to me) . I’ll be honest, there are so many unfortunate things that have come of this quarantine. From job loss/furlough, companies closing their doors, abuse spiking, lives being turned upside down for parents navigating a new normal trying to juggle work and home schooling their kids with really no preparation for it. There is SO much that we’re all experiencing, but in that I hope everyone is finding a little glimmer of hope in learning to love their people harder. I know I have 🥰 .

Let's talk about balance within a composition. This is a fairly balanced shot. To ensure our eyes feast upon the entirety of the image *pun intended* and not just one focal point, we styled the darker elements throughout the shot. We want your eyes to dart amongst the whole, balanced image and not just fixate on one element. Spreading out your high contrast elements (like the darker pieces against a light background) will help you achieve that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shot with @thepetalerfloralco @elizabeth.miller.design #houstonfilmphotographer #texasfilmphotographer #houstonbrandphotographer #brandphotographer #houstonbrandphotography #brandphotography #branding #smallbusiness #brandingphotography #brandingphotographer #foodstyling #houstonfoodie #foodphotographer #houstonbrandingphotographer #smallbusiness #photostylist #productphotography #prettycreativestyle #calledtobecreative #creativepreneur #capturemycraft #pursuepretty #mybeautifulsimplicity #thatsdarling #thesimpleeveryday #nestandthrive #theeverydayproject #slowdownwithstills #seeingthepretty #aseasonalshift

Ally showed up to her engagement session with the cutest outfits, she rocked a @gigipip hat (she gets me!) and we finished up their session with the dreamiest photos of these two in a canoe at the pond! I knew it was gonna be so good but their photos are some of my favorites ever because they were so playful and energetic, we literally shot all the way up to sunset because I just couldn’t stop but can you even blame me?! ✨👏🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love it when couples put thought and intention into their sessions, it only makes for a more creative shoot! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who else is ready to be behind the camera every weekend and celebrate their couples?!?! 🥂 💕 #yesplease ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HMU: @sunnyhairandmakeup Venue: @arrowheadhill Lab: @photovisionprints ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #courtneyleighphotography #clpweddings #houstonweddingphotographer #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonphotographer #austinweddingphotographer #dallasweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #destinationweddingphotographer #editorialphotographer #editorial #film #portra400 #contax645 #filmphotographer #luxurywedding #luxuryweddingphotographer #fineartphotography #fineartfilm #couple #engagementsession #fineartweddingphotographer #filmcommunity #kodak #fineartphotographer #mediumformatfilm #editorial #engagements #engaged

When we worked with Stephanie of @thevirtualblonde, she wanted a photo of herself at her brand session. Not just any headshot, but a real-life version of her logo. We thought it was a fun photo to put on her shot list, as most logos we see don't have an illustrated version of the business owner. Head to her profile to see how we did making her into her own illustrated logo! - #brandphotographer #brandphotography #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonbrandphotographer #houstonbrandingphotographer #brandingphotographer #texasfilmphotographer #businesscoach #creativelaw #minimal #minimalism #flatlays #brandingphotographer #theartofslowloving #darlingmovement #seekthesimplicity #essentials #shopsmall #shoplocal #smallbusiness #vsco #vscocam #postitforaesthetic

Mothers are my favorite to photograph. During a family session I always steal mom away for a few one on one moments with each of her children. I usually encourage them to get close and snuggle, walk hand in hand and tell a funny joke or say something about one another that they are really grateful for. These are some little prompts that always bring forth real smiles and genuine connection that can help us document the special relationship between a mama and each one of her babies. 🤍 | Emily and her first born during her spring 2020 family session, shot on film ✨ . . . #motherhoodrising #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodonfilm #thestoryofus #houstonfamilyphotographer #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonmotherhoodphotographer #documentaryfamilyphotography #texasfamilyphotographer #texasmotherhoodphotographer #lemonadeandlenses #themotherhoodanthology

I was in major planning mode to host #courtneyleighworkshops when Covid hit and tried to rain on my parade. I’m so ready for the fall when I can finally launch the workshop (postponed to March 2021 🥂) and dig into topics I love discussing and teaching like marketing strategy, social media, branding, contracts, best business practices, how to book your ideal client every. Single. Time. 👏🏼 and possibly the most important of all — creating a life giving business that you love. All with an insanely talented team of industry leading wedding pros and guest speakers! And that’s only the tip of the iceberg! It's seriously going to be EPIC. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyone dreaming up new ideas and projects to implement this fall or 2021?! Or how have you had to pivot your business during this time?! I'm right there with ya!

Today we're talking about team photos. While we can certainly capture you + your employee team at your brand session, what we mean by 'team photo' is the total lineup of your goods + products that we are photographing at your session, or all individual items which make up the total collection. As pictured above, a good example of this could be the floral centerpiece and a floor arrangement that make up a complete table look like these here by @maxitflowerdesign 🌸 - When photographing with an artist or a creator of physical goods + products, we like to do a 'team photo' as well as individual product shots. Team photos are great for showcasing on social media, introducing a new product line or seasonal promotion, website banners/ hero images, or as secondary e-commerce product shots to potentially direct customers to more products similar to the one they are already considering purchasing .

I was looking thru my grid the other day and realized I rarely post an image with my clients looking at the camera...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I knew I love images that make me feel like I'm peeking in on great love, or seeing a Bride who's filled with emotion and beauty.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love an image that evokes emotion...whether that is joy, romance, love, desire, excitement, anticipation...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When the subjects are looking at the camera, it sometimes feels like their breaking the fourth wall (this is a term in the film industry: "The fourth wall is an imaginary barrier between a film or television show and the audience. It's what separates the real world from the fictional world. Breaking the fourth wall is when the characters acknowledge they are in a movie and interact directly with the audience." I think it applies)...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want you to feel it too.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want you to see my images and imagine what they could be thinking, or what could've been said to get those giggles...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What they were feeling as they softly nuzzled in...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You'll still get plenty of the classic portraits we all know the sweet and loving Grandmas out there want...but the ones I love are those that tell the story of your love❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Venue | @thegin_hidalgofalls⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Coordinator | @samanthalipscomb07⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Floral | @urbanrubbishweddings @mb.urbanrubbishweddings⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dress | @loveandlacetexas⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ MUH | Shawna @fringesaloncobcs⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Groom/Groomsmen | @menswearhouse⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #rdpcouples

When shelter-in-place laws started, we said we were going to support other small businesses by leaving 5-star reviews. Well we dropped the ball... until yesterday! Read what we thought about working with our amazing graphic designer, @oldcity_mailroom : ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We're SO glad we made the investment into our brand with @oldcity_mailroom. Having the visual tools we need to move forward with confidence when presenting Lightbulb League makes all of the difference in the world. Working with Andi was a breeze. She's professional, down to earth, and discerning. Andi was able to take all of our thoughts and ideas and turn it into a perfect representation of my brand. The logo she designed for us is truly so much more than that. When she presented it to us, her beautiful designs and the thought process that went into it truly brought everything together. I highly recommend Old City Mailroom! - If you've yet to leave a fellow small business owner a 5-star review, add it to your to-do list! - #houstonfilmphotographer #texasfilmphotographer #houstonbrandphotographer #brandphotographer #houstonbrandphotography #houstonbrandingphotography #brandphotography #branding #smallbusiness #brandingphotography #brandingphotographer #houstonbrand

This monthly mail-in subscription brand session for @adoration includes 10 photos a month. As a subscription client who lives in another state, she mails in her pieces so we can style and shoot them.

Happy Anniversary to these two ... a few of my favorite images from their wedding at @brennersonthebayou , they had a beautiful, heartfelt, small wedding before small weddings were all the rage! 😍 I love that the couples I work with choose experiences that include exactly what matters most to them and keep the meaning of their day at the heart of it all. It’s one thing to have a beautiful wedding, it’s another - and far more important thing - to have a beautiful marriage. . . . . . . . . . . . #houstonfineartweddingphotographer #filmphotography #houstonfineartphotographer #destinationweddingphotographer #houstonfilmphotographer #fineartfilmwedding #smallweddingphotographer #houstonsmallweddingphotographer #elopementphotographer #destinationweddingfilmphotographer #makeyourweddingmeaningful #microweddingphotographer #intimateweddingphotographer #houstonphotographer #weddingsinhouston #houstonfineartphotographer #houstonweddingphotographer #abeautifulmarriage #brennersonthebayou #brennersonthebayouhouston #brennersonthebayouwedding #houstonsmallweddingvenue #smallweddingvenuehouston #smallweddingideas #makeyourweddingspecial #meaningfulwedding #iammagrougefabulous

White stone, tulle dresses, and a sweet love story make for quite a perfect match.

Turning the spotlight on the cameras themselves today, those magical black boxes that take all our emotions and memories and light and turn them into a priceless, tangible ... thing! . . Cameras are amazing. . . My favorite cameras over the years ... the Kodakdisc camera (analog film, in a disc, super fun to shoot, awesome for action shots - so wish I still had that one), Canon Rebel (my first big kid camera- still an awesome starter camera for anyone interested in photography), A slew of all the digital point-and-shoot and then DSLR cams ... every new innovation meant a new camera for me ... cycled through Canon, Nikon, back to Canon, Fuji, Sony, Kodak, Minolta, some I can’t even remember the brand! Then, my return to my first love, film ... Contax645 (my current obsession, medium format film and the majority of images on my feed), Canon 1v 35mm film (sold that one when I sold all my Canon gear - it was an awesome camera, but a photographer can only carry so much on a wedding day!) My current digital set up is mirrorless Sony which I use in situations that are not ideal for analog film ... and let’s not forget the iPhone! . . The best part is no matter what the camera, you can create amazing images! The trick is finding the set up that is your best fit for style, mechanics, and investment. Need help choosing a camera for yourself? I can help! Looking to learn photography (film or digital)? I can help with that too! . . This Mamiya is the lovely @lphotographybylena ‘s medium format film camera 😍 a gem of a camera. . . . . . . #photographymentor #photographymentorship #houstonfilmphotographers #houstonfilmphotographer #fineartfilmphotographer #learnphotography #learnphotographyonline #learnphotographyskills #beginnerphotographytips #mediumformatphotography #35mmphotography #filmphotography #filmisnotdead #filmphotographymentor #filmphotographyworkshop #learnfilmphotography #filmphotographymentorship #photoskills #athomephotography #onlinephotoschool #onlinephotographycourses #camerabuyersguide #masteryourphotography #howtophotography #teachmephotography #photocourse #howtofilmphotography #filmphotography #improvephotographyskills #learncamerabasics

It’s almost Mother’s Day! Want to give your Mom (or yourself!) something that will last? (And not in the way chocolates last on your hips, lol) Photos! Good, healthy, long-lasting photos ... yeah, Mom will love that! Of course, you don’t have to run to get photos today- you can book a session for your best time during the next few months. She will love it just as much!! Reach out today to book your session or snatch up a digital gift card! . . . . . . . #houstonfilmphotographer #galvestonfilmphotographer #houstonfamilyphotographer #houstonfamiliesonfilm #familiesonfilm #beachportraits #mothersday #mothersdaygift #mothersdaygiftideas #houstonfineartfilmphotographer #destinationfilmphotographer #houstoncouplesphotographer #houstonweddingphotographer #houstonweddingfilmphotographer #familytime #familyiseverything #familyisforever #loveyourfamily #familyportraitphotographer #houstonfamilyportraitphotographer #galvestonfamilyportraits #galvestonfamilyportraitphotographer #beachfamilyportraits #frontporchproject #covidfamilytime #covidfamilybonding

Smiles with your best girls on your best day 💕 As I mentioned a little bit ago, I’m excited to launch a new business project soon! As it’s not quite ready to be launched yet, I wanted to give a little hint as to who it’s for- brides, bridesmaids and...more! Be on the lookout for the product and service created for YOU!

a charismatic couple in love and golden light, it's the recipe for the perfect engagement session -- Lexie + Taylor had all of that and more! ✨looking forward to their wedding with @wedandprosper and @etoillyartistry ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ one thing I've been working on this year is getting out of my comfort zone more. during shoots, I'm testing the boundaries a little bit, shooting movement and moments that I would normally pass up, it’s been really fun to see the results. Keeping the subjects moving and giving them guidance and direction is a key part of making beautiful images! Add a little movement to your next shoot and watch the magic happen! 👏🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #courtneyleighphotography #houstonweddingphotographer #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonphotographer #austinweddingphotographer #dallasweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #destinationweddingphotographer #editorialphotographer #editorial #film #portra400 #contax645 #filmphotographer #luxurywedding #luxuryweddingphotographer #fineartphotography #fineartfilm #couple #portraits #fineartweddingphotographer #filmcommunity #kodak #fineartphotographer #mediumformatfilm #editorial #engagements #bridetobe #engaged

A favorite small wedding venue + a favorite couple! @ouisiestable has the prettiest courtyard and dining areas - perfect for an intimate celebration in Houston. And may I just add ... this officiant has skills! Notice the “step aside” for the couple’s first kiss? Perfection! I have one of the most hysterical photos from a different wedding that I have never shared ... but if you can imagine ... the officiant’s face fit perfectly within the “between the neck” area of one of our couples kissing so all you can see are eyes, nose, mouth and every time I think of it, I get the giggles. The things you don’t think about if you aren’t a wedding photographer, right? No worries though! Photo outtakes are safe with me! . . . . .

There's this largely unspoken rule that most coffee dates/ get togethers in the creative industry happen on Tuesdays or Thursdays. But mostly Tuesdays. Don't ask us why, that's just how it goes 🤷‍♀️😆 - On a day like today, we'd probably be driving through town on our way to catch up with creative, like-minded small business owning friends while sipping our favorite beverages. Instead, we're all sitting around in what is more than likely our pajamas, chasing around or homeschooling our kids (or both), trying to balance this new (ab)normal day-to-day, or craving some connection with other people (yes, even you enneagram type 5's). - We just wanted to say YOU'RE NOT ALONE. We want to be here to help our creative industry friends during this time. Last month we shared 30 Productive Things to do During the Quarantine as a Creative Small Business Owner. We loved making that list (and we hope it helped you!) so we decided to make one for May. We're taking it in the opposite direction and sharing 30 Fun and Creative things to do During the Quarantine that have nothing at all to do with owning a business. We put a quick, easy link in our bio for you. Just tap and it'll take you straight to it. - We hope this will help spark some ideas for you during this time of separation + uncertainty. Please let us know if you end up doing some of these- we'll keep you updated with our check list, too! Happy Tuesday! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #brandphotographer #brandedheadshots #brandheadshots #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonfilmphotography #texasfilmphotographer #houstonfilmphotographer #houstonbrandphotographer #houstonbrandphotography #houstonbrandingphotography #brandphotography #branding #smallbusiness #brandingphotography #brandingphotographer #houstonbrand #stockphotography #stockphotos #creativesmallbusiness #styledstock #styledstockphotos #creativepreneur #mycreativebiz #makersmovement #communityovercompetition #photostyling #photostylist #filmphotographer

My day to day life is pretty simple. Nothing too flashy ever really happens around here in our old home in the suburbs. But what I love about it is you enjoy the small things and can make any moment special. On wedding days, some are more fast paced and eventful and some our more laid back and easy going. I love both kinds of weddings and getting to experience the joy and celebration from every wedding is so special. . .

Are you a “note to self” kind of person? I am! My handwritten note scrawled across a random page in my paper calendar/planner reads: “Peonies are in season from April to June!” (Yes, it includes the exclamation point, because while I actually know very little about flowers, I do know what I like, and what I like is peonies!! and garden roses — which I never knew I loved so much — I also like tulips and magnolias, and ranunculus- which I don’t even know how to spell). Teach me something you know about flowers 😍 . . . . .

these scans of my girls just hit my inbox from @photovisionprints and I can’t handle it. 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I showed my girls this photo of them, Rylee said which one is me?! 🤣 it cracks me up that they can’t tell themselves apart in photos LOL. I laughed and said “guess which one is you”, she said I can’t mom, we look the same! And Avery chimes in... “we get that a lot!” 😂🌸 these two definitely keep us laughing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Having twin girls is like having my own little models to photograph, it’s the best ✨💕 I didn’t have a sister growing up but I’m grateful every single day that they have each other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #courtneyleighphotography #houstonweddingphotographer #houstonfilmphotographer #editorial #film #portra400 #contax645 #fineartphotography #fineartfilm #family #familyphotographer #fineartweddingphotographer #filmcommunity #kodak #fineartphotographer #mediumformatfilm #childhoodunplugged #identicaltwins #twinmom #motherhood #honestlymothering #motherhoodunplugged #twinning #houstonfamilyphotographer

A very sweet couple of mine should have been getting married today, I thought about them all day long. Their strength and ability to overcome the challenges of postponing their dream day is admirable and inspiring.

Christina and Matt hired me to photograph their wedding last year. When I met them for their engagement session I immediately knew I was in for a treat with them. The love shared between them is electric. They smiled, laughed, and gazed into each other’s eyes all session long without any prompting. Their love was so easy to photograph. I was bummed to find out their wedding would have to be postponed. Today, they were supposed to get married. I am overjoyed for them that they are still choosing to get married today. It won’t be what they originally planned. But no coronavirus will be will be stopping these two from sharing their love with one another today. Congratulations to these two; can’t wait to celebrate you again!
