Leah & Bryan’s Houston Wedding

Leah and Bryan could put up a pretty healthy fight for the “happiest, funnest, most party-lovin’ couple” award. These two are all smiles, all the time, especially when they’re around each other. Leah is the quintessential happy-go-lucky girl who has a great time no matter what’s going on, and the love she and Bryan share is one of the most upbeat, enthusiastic loves I’ve ever seen. Spending the wedding day with them was a heap of fun, and you better believe they kept the dance floor going all night long. They also had some of the most unique ballroom decor I’ve ever seen. Here are some of my favorites:

There was such amazing light in the room that Leah and her bridesmaids got ready in, and as a result I think her pre-wedding shots are some of my best work. It’s amazing how much light can affect the quality of your wedding day photographs. If you’re engaged, make sure that on your wedding day you surround yourself with as much natural light as possible by getting ready in rooms with lots of unblocked windows!

Leah and Bryan chose to do a First Look, which I love them for! It allowed us to get some gorgeous photos of them before their ceremony (I’ll show more of those off later).

Leah told me that her design inspiration for her wedding was garden/forest theme, only ballroom-ized. The guys at Party Props Inc did a crazy job of bringing her vision to life, complete with a custom-made tree and personalized heart carving!

  • Erica - Absolutely gorgeous shots, as always. I particularly love the vibrant colour shot of the wedding party walking down the road – really amazing!

  • Joseph Yarrow Bristol Wedding Photographer - Recently found your blog Stacey! So Glad I did too, beautiful work! Leah and Bryan look like an awesome couple!

  • Barb Cameron - Ottawa - beautiful lighting with the girls geetting ready! Love the fact that they chose to see each other prior to the ceremony; I wish more couples would opt for that. Besides all of the gorgeous details pics, I love the group photos (walking down the street and sitting on steps) Stunning.

  • austin wedding photographer - I love your work so much. You do some of the most fun group shots I’ve seen. Love that last shot – and btw, what a gorgeous bride.

  • leah - Stacy you are the best!!! These are fantastic :)

  • Harmony Loves - just beautiful! I love the first look and group shots… perfection.

  • Claudia - Beautiful pictures as always Stacy! :)

  • Morgan - I love your photos Stacy, and your pricing guide is initially how I found you. I’m shooting my first wedding in May, and I love all the pictures of the rings that you did. How do you generally work that? Do you just ask the couple to hand ‘em over or what? I think I’d be so scared to lose them.

    Best wishes in planning your own wedding! You must have tons of awesome ideas and connections now!

  • stacyreeves - I don’t really think about it, I just ask them to hand over the rings at some point during the reception usually. I always make sure that there are no events coming up like bouquet toss or cake cutting so that I can have a good 20 minutes with the rings uninterrupted. I think the danger of losing the rings would be if you had to run and do something else, and threw them in your pocket or something. If I have to stop shooting the rings for any reason, I always hand them back to the bride and groom first.

  • Denver wedding photographers - Beautiful couple. You can see it in the pictures that they are having so much fun.

  • Melanie Cascia | The Woodlands Photographer - Awww…. I love this. It’s so cute! I especially love the table with all the couple’s photos, that is a wonderful Idea.
    Great moments you captured, Stacy!
    Congratulations to Leah & Bryan!
