In a lifetime photography

In a lifetime photography Cypress and Katy photographer with over 15 years experience. also available for travel So you want to know about me? I shoot people for a living!
(27)

I love photography and taking part in making memories! The smiles, the joy, the tears, everything that turns that "snapshot" into a treasured memory. I'm also Dylan and Alicia's dad, and being a father means everything to me. My children are my joy and give me focus. I am a Christian and my faith guides me as I serve others with the gift God has given me. I'm a nerd, cartoon watcher, music lover,

and deep thinker. I am a local Houston Wedding Photographer that believes in offering quality, excellent service, and a personality to fit any occasion. You deserve someone that will help make your special event the memory you expect it to be. My tagline is "your life, your memories, your way". That comes from my belief in the importance of photography to my clients. "Your life" - I have been fortunate to capture several life events of repeat clients and it really brings me joy when they trust those life events - engagement, wedding, maternity, birth, family photos, graduations, etc. "Your memories" - Giving my clients quality photography that they can look back on years later

"Your way" - While I am the one with the experience, the images are yours and not my "artistic vision". As a Houston wedding photographers, I want you as my client to be comfortable during the photo session and once the images are delivered, I want you satisfied. There are a lot of wedding photographers that mask their lack of experience by using too much Photoshop on the images and you no longer look like "you". It's my job to make you look beautiful, without making you look fake. I have been a Houston wedding photographer for over 15 years (which means that you can rest easy on your wedding day because you have someone that can take care of you) and I can honestly say that each one has been different. Yes, there is emotion, there is beauty, and there is fun, but the personalities of each couple make each wedding a very unique experience and I am honored to be a part of each one. I am available to offer coverage for:

Wedding photography (Houston Metro area wedding photography and destination weddings)
Bridal sessions
Engagement sessions
and any other event that you would require photographic coverage for. We have packages starting at $1500 and can forward our complete package information to you, so please let us know what you have set aside for wedding photography and we can better design something to meet your needs. Please don't base a day as important as your wedding day on price, give us the opportunity to serve you. Even though I am a Houston photographer, I am available to travel to any destination you need to cover your event. I LOVE to travel!!! Click on any of the albums to view examples of the quality I can provide you. I look forward to serving you.

In an Ethiopian wedding, the touching of foreheads holds deep symbolism and significance. Let’s delve into this beautiful tradition:

Symbol of Unity and Connection:
When the bride and groom touch foreheads, it represents their unity and connection. It’s a powerful moment where two souls come together, acknowledging their commitment to each other.
The touching of foreheads signifies that they are now bound by love, respect, and shared dreams.
Blessing and Protection:
The groom lifts the veils that adorn the bride’s face. This act is a reparation for the struggles they’ve both endured.
As he lifts the veils, he offers a gentle kiss on her forehead. This kiss symbolizes blessings and protection for their journey ahead.
Emotional Depth:
The forehead is a place of vulnerability and intimacy. By touching foreheads, the couple expresses their deep emotional connection.
It’s a moment of tenderness, where they share their hopes, fears, and promises silently.
Rooted in Tradition:
Ethiopian weddings are steeped in tradition and spirituality. The touching of foreheads is a timeless custom passed down through generations.
It’s a reminder that love transcends time and space, connecting them to their ancestors and the future.
So, when the bride and groom touch foreheads, they honor their past, celebrate their present, and embrace their future as one. 🌟💕 Me'Chelle McGhee Events

🌟 Nigerian Weddings in America: A Tapestry of Culture and Love 🌟

🇳🇬✨ When Nigeria meets the USA, magic happens! 🇺🇸✨

1. The Bride Price: In Nigerian weddings, it’s customary for the groom to present the bride price—a symbolic gesture that showcases his ability to care for his new family. It’s not about selling anyone; it’s about honoring tradition and love. 💕

2. The Traditional Attire: From the gele (headwrap) to the agbada (robe), Nigerian brides and grooms dazzle in vibrant fabrics. The colors tell stories of ancestry, resilience, and joy.

3. The Community Celebration: Nigerian weddings are grand affairs! Imagine a guest list of 250+—extended family, distant relatives, neighbors, and well-wishers—all coming together to celebrate love. 🎉

4. The Double Ceremony: Many Nigerian-American couples opt for a double celebration: a cultural Nigerian wedding followed by a Western ceremony. Best of both worlds! 🌍❤️

5. The Opulence: Houston, Atlanta, New York—Nigerian wedding ceremonies are opulent. Hundreds of guests, vibrant outfits, and dancing that defies gravity! 🕺💃

What is a boho wedding? A bohemian styled theme or boho wedding is one that obeys no rules, as shown by its freedom of expression and frugality. An eclectic mix of styles revealed by simple, artsy and adventurous touches
Why is the Bohemian wedding theme so popular?
First, a lot of couples identify with the simple, anything goes, DIY filled style of a boho wedding. It allows for many ways to personalize a wedding.

Second, because of its frugality, it adjusts to even the smallest of budgets. Couples nowadays are more budget-conscious. Savvy-brides know that they can plan a boho wedding on a tight budget.

The good thing about the Bohemian style is that brides can pick either a Boho vintage, Beachy Boho, Boho Chic, Wanderlust or Woodland themes according to what fits their personality best.

🌟 Capturing Love and Fur: Engagement Photos with Our Furry Friends! 🌟

📸 When it comes to celebrating your love story, why not include the ones who’ve been there through thick and thin? Your fur babies deserve a spot in your engagement photos! 🐶🐱 Whether they’re wagging their tails or purring contently, their presence adds an extra layer of warmth and authenticity to your special moments.

🌿 Tips for Perfect Pet-Inclusive Engagement Photos:

Choose a Pet-Friendly Location: Opt for a picturesque park, a cozy backyard, or even your favorite hiking trail. Let your pets explore and be part of the natural backdrop.
Coordinate Outfits: Match your attire with your pets’ accessories. Imagine your dog in a floral collar or your cat with a tiny bowtie. Adorable, right? 🌸🎀
Treats and Toys: Bring along their favorite treats and toys. These little bribes can work wonders in capturing their attention and genuine expressions.
Natural Interactions: Instead of posed shots, focus on candid moments. Capture the way your dog nuzzles your hand or how your cat curls up in your lap. These authentic interactions tell beautiful stories.
Timing Matters: Plan your shoot during the golden hour—the soft, warm light just before sunset. It’ll make everyone (including your pets) look their best.

Like most people, I have been a fan of since the early days of Commissioned, and watching God use him over the years has been a blessing. He has a unique gift to be able to write certain songs that are almost word for word what I pray some days and this song has been on repeat for a while now:
All things are working for me even things I can’t see
Your ways are so beyond me
But You said that You would let it be for my good
So I’ll rest and just believe
Thank you for allowing God to continue to use you to be a blessing to others in so many ways....

As a wedding photographer, I’ve had the privilege of capturing countless beautiful moments, and intimate backyard weddings hold a special place in my heart. Here are some compelling reasons why couples should consider this charming and personal approach:

Cost Savings: Hosting your wedding in your own backyard can significantly reduce expenses. While renting a venue comes with premium packages, a backyard wedding allows you to forgo a big chunk of those costs. You’ll still need to budget for essentials like a wedding tent, furniture, and catering, but overall, your expenses will likely be lower.

Control Over Space: When you’re in your own space, you have the freedom to decorate and celebrate as you see fit. No more rigid rules or regulations from venue managers! You choose the date, time, and layout. Last-minute changes? No problem—no extra fees to worry about.

Keep It Intimate: Not keen on inviting distant relatives or acquaintances you barely know? A backyard wedding provides the perfect excuse to keep the guest list small. Reserve spots only for VIPs—immediate family and closest friends. It’s an opportunity to focus on meaningful experiences for each guest.

Support Local Businesses: Hosting a backyard wedding allows you to work with local vendors—bakers, florists, caterers, and musicians. Personalize your day while supporting small businesses in your community.

Romantic Ambiance: There’s something inherently romantic about exchanging vows under the open sky, surrounded by familiar trees and blooming flowers. The intimacy of the setting enhances the love shared between you and your partner.

So, whether it’s the budget-friendly aspect, the flexibility, or the sheer romance, intimate backyard weddings offer a unique and unforgettable experience for couples embarking on their lifelong journey together. 🌿💕
