Mary and Karl's wedding day was a classic fusion of cultures blending both Cambodian and Indian traditions. Our day started at the bride's parents' home and gave us our first opportunity to photograph a Cambodian ceremony. Scott and I were able to grab several emotional moments as the ceremony unfolded, ending, of course, with Mary and Karl united.
After an intermission the reception commenced at The Bell Tower on 34th which remains one of Houston's most in-demand venues. After an initial entrance, dancing, and cake cutting, the couple then changed into traditional Indian attire and joined their friends on the dance floor.
It's always a pleasure to work with Audrey and this wedding was no different. And thanks to Alyssa who also contributed some photos below.

As a wedding photographer I truly appreciate the opportunity I have to be exposed to cultures and traditions. Frieda and Kordty's wedding was split into two halves: a Western wedding (so to speak) and a traditional Thai wedding at a Buddhist temple. When they told me about their plans I couldn't help but get excited.
While I was learning apparently so was the bride--she is actually Cambodian and had to pick up a few things about the differences in their customs as well.
After the early morning ceremony, we transitioned to the Magnolia Hotel (one of my favorite hotels in town) where they had a second ceremony and then an intimate but still lively reception. Frieda truly owned her wedding and was fittingly the life of the party. You'll see several photos of her enjoying herself with friends.
The always reliable and talented Scott had my back again for this one. Here are a few of our favorites.
