This candid wedding photo of a bride and groom was taken at Hotel Galvez in Galveston Texas. Our team of professional wedding photographers have photographed many wedding at Hotel Galvez over the years.
What you are seeing in this wedding picture is the bride and groom's first look.
A first look is when a couple sees each other prior to their ceremony in order to take all of their posed photos. Some of these images include fun bridal party photos, traditional family portraits as well as creative photos of the bride and groom together on their wedding day.
We started this wedding day as we do all weddings, photographing the bride's details. Details may seem minor in comparison to traditional family photos or the first kiss. But they help tell the complete story of our Bride & Grooms journey to becoming husband and wife.
I personally like to photograph the "first reveal" or "first look" privately. It is always better to get the bride-to-be and groom-to-be alone so they can relax and really show their emotions.
We photograph these moments as candid as possible.
After talking to the Bride and Groom about their style, they told us they would like a mix of light and airy images as well as posed and creative photos.
On this fall wedding at the Hotel Galvez, we choose to photograph the bridal party photos using natural light. This would give our couple the light and airy feel they were looking for.
We want to show your real relationships with these images, so yes, of course, we get traditional, look at the camera pictures, but we also like to have fun and be silly with our bridal party photos too.
Hotel Galvez is Galveston's most sought after catering hall. It is located at 2024 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, TX 77550.
It features lush gardens, sprawling greens, and beautiful beaches. All of these amazing features photograph beautifully and are sure to give you the perfect backdrop for your wedding photography needs.
They have multiple ballrooms to fit any reception size.
The Terrace Ballroom can fit up to 230 guests on your wedding day. It is the perfect location to create beautiful wedding photos of your grand entrance, first dance, parent dances, cake cutting and of course fun reception photos.
The high ceilings in the Terrace ballroom are perfect for setting up off-camera flash and a wide-angle lens. The off-camera flash allows us to place the light exactly where we want it, on you the Bride & Groom.
The Oleander Garden is another ballroom that is offered here. It can fit up to 250 guests for your reception.
It has a trickling water wall and lush greenery that all of our Brides and Grooms want in their wedding album.
The Music Hall at Hotel Galvez can seat up to 300 guests on your special day. One of the great features of the Music Hall is that you have access to the patio. The views of the gulf are stunning. I love to take romantic wedding photos here.
If you are having a small Galveston wedding reception East Parlor & West Parlor may be the right choice for you. It can host up to 60 guests on your special day. Who knows maybe you can all go to the hotel Galvez spa after and relax the night away.
The Center Lawn is where you would host your outdoor ceremony. You are surrounded by beautiful palm trees.
During your ceremony, I will take many candid photos. I love to take candid pictures of the first time the groom sees his bride walking down the aisle, your vows, your first kiss as husband and wife as.
I will also take many photos of the bridal party as they watch their best friends get married.
