alex and max’s wedding | omni houston | leica wedding

Like Alex and Max’s wedding, I’m very fortunate to do what I do for a living. I get to shoot all types of cultural and destination weddings and this was no exception.  Alex and Max’s wedding or ‘Malex’ as we now fondly call them was a Jewish ceremony at the Onmi Riverway in Houston on the last Saturday of March 2013.

We start as guests gathered at The Omni and the rehearsal dinner at the historical Sam Houston Hotel’s Veranada room (that’s the first picture below).  I first met Alex and Max over Skype almost a year ago and after that knew I wanted to shoot their special day. Last summer, I was fortunate to fly into Newark and photographer their engagement session, shot over two days around Brooklyn and New York City. Part one is here and part two here. The party went late into the early hours and was, well, crazy crazy crazy. If you were there, then you know what I mean! My other English partner in crime, aka, second photographer was Adam Swift who flew in from La La Land, so thanks to him for coming along for the ride. We have worked together many times before and are available as a team for any destination wedding around the world.

Alex and Max are an amazing couple to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed working with them including Alex’s mom, Susan throughout the process.  They both complement each others personalities perfectly and I’m looking forward to seeing their story evolve in the future.

If you’re getting married in Houston, the Hill Country or just about to start planning a destination wedding, contact planner Natalie Dawley, owner of Two Be Wed. She’s a multi-cultural and destination wedding specialist.

    Karen Torseth - Hello Mr. Thomas,

    Ms. Schneider recently shared the link to the photos from Alex & Max’s wedding. We were the provider of the Photofetti that was tossed in the last photo. All the photos are fabulous, it is a beautiful wedding with beautiful photos. We really appreciate the photo with the Photofetti being tossed it is a perfect photo, we don’t often get to see photos from the events that our product is used, so this is a special treat for us. I have asked Ms. Schneider for a copy of the photo to keep in our files and also possibly for future promotional use, which of course we would give you full credit for the Photography. Thank you so much for sharing your photographic talent, It is obvious that you are an excellent photographer.

    Best regards,

    Karen Torseth
    Photofetti, Inc.
