I always get asked how can i get my details to look so perfect! How do i get my detail photos to look like this?! What did they do differently? The truth is easy, be prepared and plan ahead. Details have easily become a super integral part of the wedding day and honestly it has been fun to push myself creatively to create something new and different every time! Anyways here are some tips to help achieve this look.
Here’s a guide on what Houston Wedding Clients can do to help create better wedding detail photos.
Collaborate with your wedding photographer well in advance. Share your vision for the wedding, your preferred details, and any sentimental items you’d like to be included in the photos.
Prepare a Detail Collection:
Gather all the essential details to be photographed, such as the wedding dress, ALL RINGS (yes his as well), shoes, jewelry, invitations, bouquet, and any heirlooms or special items. Have them ready in one place for the photographer. (A shoebox or just box in general is a good spot for this!)
Consider a Styling Kit:
Some brides create a styling kit with extra ribbons, flowers, or other decorative elements that can enhance the detail photos. Share this with your photographer for additional creative options. (Bonus tip Etsy has some beautifully curated kits! )
Personalize Your Details:
Add personal touches to your details that reflect your personality and the theme of your wedding. This could include custom monograms on invitations, unique jewelry, or personalized hangers for your dress.
Choose a Beautiful Houston Wedding Getting-Ready Location:
Select a getting-ready location with ample natural light and an aesthetically pleasing backdrop. A well-decorated bridal suite or room can make a significant difference in your detail photos.
Trust Your Houston Wedding Photographer:
Your photographer has experience capturing wedding details. Trust their creative vision and allow them to experiment with different angles and techniques.
When you start to plan your wedding you go through all the vendors you think you want / need. Venue, photographer, florist, catering, rentals, cake, videographer, officiant, etc! One vendor typically get’s left out and is super under rated. A Top Houston wedding planner. Weather that be full planning, month of, week of, or even just day of services. There is a level of planning to fit all needs.

Carrie and Rebekah are lucky to share a bond beyond sisterhood. Despite an eight-year gap in age, they have pretty much always been best friends and they are truly balancing points for one another. While at first it may seem as if Carrie is a classic ‘first born’ child: all about details, organization, and structure and Rebekah fills the ‘youngest child’ role: fun, laughter, and a good-time gal, they actually BOTH bring ALL of these traits to Blue Poppy Events.
For years, they discussed what kind of business they could create together. Something that would utilize their skills, push them to learn and grow, and also be family-oriented. Wedding and event planning sort of fell into their laps at the right time and the right place in life. Just as they were trying to find ‘the perfect business idea’, they kept getting asked by friends and family to assist with their weddings and events. “You know how to run a wedding rehearsal, right?” “Can you set up a reception?” “Do you know anything about wedding day timelines?”. As neither sister is one to shy away from a challenge, they took on these requests for help with all seriousness and refused to let someone’s special day fall to pieces.
Well, after hours and hours of searching for what captured who they are and what they wanted their business to be. Carrie and Rebekah realized how fortunate they are to have one another as a sister and began to think about their own families. While they each only have one daughter, their hope is that their children will grow up to be more like sisters. In searching for a way to symbolize this in their busines they ultimately decided. They selected blue for the color of 1 daughter’s birthstone and the poppy is the other daughter’s birth month flower.
Fast forward to today and Blue Poppy Events is now growing into everything this sister team hoped for – and more. They love to meet with couples and hear what they have envisioned for their wedding day. Then helping bring that dream to fruition. Rarely a wedding passes that Rebekah isn’t getting choked up when the bride walks down the aisle. Carrie has to leave the room as the first notes of the Father and Bride’s song starts to find a tissue. They adore each and every celebration that they get to be a part of… and they have A LOT of fun doing it!! They’ve even been caught once or twice in a dark corner of the reception dancing to the party music! 😉
