The Red Photo team recently photographed at the Crowne Plaza River Oaks hotel in Houston, TX. We were there to capture all the elements of a wedding including the brides having their make up done, bridal portraits, interiors of the hotel, the reception area, and food. Coordinating an all day photography shoot like this can be a challenge. There were brides to schedule and food to create, along with details like flowers. We needed access to the bridal suite and a hospitality suite. And that is before we had to move all of our equipment into and around the hotel. We must have been quite the spectacle, especially when we were photographing the brides in the lobby area with a flash popping off every few seconds. One of the hotel workers thought that the fire alarm light was going off. The hotel staff was very helpful and they made our day run a little bit smoother.
Behind the camera was Jim Stevens, Monee Fly, and me. Monee also help with her expertise in food styling. Isaac Lopez (Zea) was our assistant and muscle. He saw to it that one went too close to all of our equipment and that said equipment made it from one set to another. Honestly, we were all over that hotel.
Everyone did a great job. I want to thank our brides, Thea and Melinda. They were wonderful to work with and we had a great time. With so many set ups to photograph we needed everyone to help. Production was handled by Jeanna Auger, Catering Sales Manager for the hotel. Food was created by Brian Pashkoff, Executive Chef, and his staff. Make up was done by Thea from KAYO by Thea. It was great having someone who could model and do make up. The flowers were provided by Sabrina Torres of Always Floral. Thea's amazingly beautiful dress was provided by Maison de Mode.
These are only a few sample images. I will be posting more as I get through them.
