Desert Rose Wedding Photography has photographed many weddings at Hotel Icon.
Hotel Icon is an award-winning wedding venue located in downtown Houston Texas.
It has everything a bride-to-be is going to want for her wedding day.
Such as a beautiful grand staircase, incredible grand ballroom and lush grounds that are the perfect backdrop for all your wedding photography needs.
When I photograph your wedding at Hotel Icon, I will use a variety of photography techniques and equipment to create many different styles of photography throughout your special day. Such as natural light, window light and off-camera flash.
We started this wedding day photographing the bride's details, such as her engagement ring, wedding bands, wedding invitation, and wedding dress.
We took some getting ready images of the mother of the bride helping her daughter with her veil. I love creating portraits of our couples but I feel the best photos in your album are going to be the candids photographs. Candid photography captures the true emotion of our couple's big day.
When we arrived back at Hotel Icon, we wanted to showcase the building's large columns. I positioned the wedding party with a vintage car and set the bride's wedding dress to showcase the dress's details.
After a number of posed photos, I wanted to create a more candid image. I got the bridesmaids and the groomsmen to laugh, this allowed me to take candid images of the bride and groom with their bridal party.
I knew I wanted to capture some images of the newlyweds in the entrance of the venue between the grand staircase. We used flash to illuminate the couple as they kissed, Hotel Icon Wedding Photographers
After all of the posed images were taken, we went into the Hotel Icon's grand ballroom.
I took the picture you see here in the grand ballroom in Hotel Icon. I used a photography technique called off-camera flash to illuminate the couple while keeping the texture and lighting of the background perfect.
Prior to your wedding reception, I will take images of the centerpieces, wedding cake, dais, card box, and table settings. These are the images that help tell the story of our couple's reception. I took a picture of the Bride & Groom together in Hotel Icon's grand ballroom, we call this a room shot and then set up my lights for the grand entrances.
Aside from the couples night time portraits at Hotel Icon, the rest of the day was going to be photographed as candid as possible.
We used two-speed lights to capture the grand entrance of the family, bridal party and bride & groom.
Then we captured great photojournalistic images of their first dance as husband and wife, maid-of-honor & best-man speeches, parent dances & cake cutting.
Every couple has their own vision for what they want their wedding album to look like. One of the reasons Desert Rose Wedding Photography is considered the Best Hotel Icon Wedding Photographers is that we get to know our couples. By learning about what you envision for your images we can tailor how we photograph your big day.
