Hi there! We're Luke and Cat, and we're so happy you're here. We hope you'll stay a while! We’re a husband and wife wedding photographer team based in Houston, Texas. Ranchers-turned-photographers, our world looks like this: a Craftsman-style farmhouse; our newborn, Knox, in our arms; coffee in the kitchen; Edison lights on the back porch; and a pair of English bulldogs at the foot of our bed.

ABOUT THE WEEKEND SNAPSHOT SERIES: It’s our weekend ritual. Every Friday before shooting a wedding, we spend a few hours feasting on inspiration: glossy magazine spreads, favorite Instagram feeds, wedding site editorials, ads for luxury brands, Sprinkles’ cupcake window displays…. It ensures we arrive at every wedding fueled by fresh ideas. Now, we’re bringing a delicious bite of inspiration to you. Start your wedding weekend with a Luke & Cat Weekend Snapshot. The icing on the cake? The hands-on, how-to advice that accompanies each photo. Sweet!

A Toast To Planning

Here’s a toast to planning! To bubbles! To happy clients!  In today’s  Weekend Snapshot, we’re celebrating the best spot for brides, grooms, and guests so you can capture the best toast photos.

It’s always a good idea to think about where you’d like the toasts to take place and where you’d like everyone to stand. The truth is, your clients and guests probably haven’t even considered where toasts will be taking place, and will be grateful for the advice. Additionally - you can use this time to instruct everyone on how to hold their champagne flutes for the perfect photo. Your bride and groom typically look best with one arm around each other and their other arms raised, with their glasses in hand.

Love & Cheers,

Luke & Cat
