That split second, right before the kiss, is the most romantic moment. Many poems, photos and paintings have been written about that memorable moment right before the kiss. Not the actual kiss itself but the anticipation before the kiss; now that is the money shot! Here, our clients are frozen forever in a photograph that beautifully illustrates that wonderful anticipation right before the kiss. This photograph was taken during the first dance at a wedding at the Hotel Galvez, Galveston Texas. Hotel Galvez is one of our personal faves photographing weddings for 15 years.


Galveston, The Strand, is an endless source of creative and timeless shooting locations. Just a short distance from Houston, Galveston is a very very different city in every way. This Spring we have begun shooting more of our Bridal and Engagement portrait sessions in Galveston and take advantage of all of the wonderful eccentricities this city has to offer.

Well, the weather guys were wrong again with their weekend forecasts. It turned out to be a beautiful Saturday, not a cloud in the Sky and not a drop of rain, Mr Tim Heller. Lauren & Drew were smokin hot in their wedding outside at the Hotel Galvez, Galveston.

Interesting story with this photograph. It was actually taken in the bridal suite bathroom in the Hotel Galvez, Galveston. Its amazing where you can go with digital cameras these days and take spectacular shots in the most unassuming locations. I told a potential bride at the bridal show this past weekend about a spectacular bridal portrait taken in the ladies room. She looked at me like I was crazy. Well, here it is. Enjoy!

A classic photo of this very elegant brides dress is our photo of the week. Photographed in the brides suite at the Hotel Galvez, Galveston, just minutes before our client put it on for her wedding. I don’t remember which suite we were in but it is rumored that one of the suites on the 5th floor is haunted. I don’t see any ghosts in this photograph, just a very beautiful wedding dress.
One of our weddings this past Summer, photographed in Galveston’s Hotel Galvez, is being featured in this months edition of Brides Magazine! Did you know the hotel is haunted by a an apparition of a bride? Apparently her favorite haunt is the ladies room in front of the old music parlor. This is NO Joke. Discovery Channel spent a full week in the hotel documenting this spirit of this bride!
