I have nothing but positive comments about the photographer. He knew his field very well and knew exactly what shots would work to produce amazing photos. The day was so perfect and having close to a thousand stunning shots to choose from has just made the memories even greater. During the service he got some simply perfect shots and it never felt like he was in the way - it was all very subtle. Please don't hesitate to book here. The service was simply outstanding.

Melissa was our photographer and let me say, she was absolutely amazing! She was so professional and had the best attitude! And the pictures we saw at the ceremony were amazing! I couldn't have asked for anything better! She listened to what we wanted and she worked with us so well. I haven't seen the final product yet but I know they're going to be beautiful. I'm so glad I went with Allure and I would recommend them to anyone! We're going to get pictures done for our anniversary and we're definitely going to use them again! Maybe even for pregnancy pictures when the time comes! They were awesome!

Having gotten married YESTERDAY, I knew my first order of business when I woke up this morning was to let the world know how amazing Ruven is! He photographed my entire 10 hour wedding yesterday and I could not have asked for a better experience. He was so patient with me (I rarely take pictures) and my family. He was especially patient when he would set up our poses only to turn around and have to wait while family members wanted to snap their own shots. He was wonderful!! From beginning to end, consultation, engagements, bridals, church and reception, he was absolutely AMAZING! No other photographer can do the dramatic lighting that he does. I can not express how thankful I am and how wonderful he is!

Allure did our wedding pictures 3 weeks ago. We had multiple phone calls and emails with our photographer so that when the day came it truly felt like we already knew him. Fernando did a good job in getting to know people's names so that he could direct us personally and not just "hey you, over here!" :-) We are awaiting our proofs to appear on the website this weekend but I already know I am satisfied with the work. Everytime we turned around Fernado was there snapping pictures. We are so excited to see our end products and would tell everyone to use Allure.

We are so happy with our photos and the professionalism of both photographer and videographer. We have never had professional photos before and Allure really blew us away. I would recommend this vendor for all special occassions!

Allure Photography is the way to go for wedding pictures. I have never been in professional photographs (neither had my husband) and Ruven (the photographer) told us exactly what to do. We felt very comfortable with him and his coworker around. The best part is when your pictures are ready to view you get to pick your favorites and he picks some as well to put in a album. You also get to pick a few larger pictures to keep and frame. Lastly, you get a cd with all the photos on them. Thank you Allure Photography for helping me remember the best day of my life (that went by SO fast)!!

We just had our wedding April 14th, and we could not have been more pleased with our photographer, Melissa. She did an excellent job at staying engaged enough to get all the shots we wanted, while not being intrusive, which can be a fine line to balance upon for a wedding photographer. It was a very big deal to me that we were able to get the digital copies of our photos as well. I was exceptionally pleased that allure offered that option.

We also used Allure for our Engagement photos, taken last October, and were very pleased with how those turned out. We shot them in Herman park, and Ruben was a pleasure to work with.

The Allure Photography website was very easy to use and I received my picture order so fast! I am able to send them on time for Christmas with time to spare! Fernando made my husband and I very comfortable and happy to be photographed, during my ceremony and reception we did not even see him taking the majority of our pictures. Every happy moment was captured by his camera and I am so pleased with his professionalism! Thank you Fernando and thank you Allure Photography!

I booked Allure to do my engagement and bridal portraits in addition to documenting my wedding day. Each time I met with Ruven for my portrait sessions he was patient and detail oriented. I added a second photographer and had the pleasure of having Fernando and Ruven be there the day of my wedding. I'm so incredibly happy with my decision because my husband started crying when he saw me walking down the aisle, and Allure captured both of our faces at that exact moment. I get emotional still thinking about it. Thanks to Allure I can cherish that moment forever.
Photography is one of the most important parts of a wedding, so brides should not settle. Book Allure to document the most important day of your life!

My mother and I met with Ruven prior to the wedding and I was very impressed with his professionalism and eagerness to understand what I wanted out of my photos. He was always very responsive to email and phone questions and made sure to make contact with us closer to the event to nail down specifics of location and timing. I was so thrilled when I arrived at the venue and he was already there scouting out pictures!! He did such an amazing job of posing and setting up shots so that they looked as flattering and beautiful as possible. He was very mindful of taking just the right amount of time with every group. I really appreciated his foresight into nabbing all of the natural light we could and helping us direct the timing of our photos. I could tell this was not his first rodeo and he was able to pull from his experiences a wealth of knowledge to help be efficient without missing a single important shot. I had been hoping since the wedding had ended that the pictures would live up to that wonderful day, and I am very happy to say that they did just that!!!! I found myself reliving the whole wedding and I was overwhelmed with all of the emotions he was able to capture. Not only was he amazing before the wedding and on the day, but he was able to get our pictures to us quickly and was still so interested in us and our experience. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Allure photography and I would recommend them in a heartbeat!!!!!!

Ruven with Allure Photography was professional, personable, & communicated every neccesary detail for our big day. He arrived on t ime as scheduled (before the BRIDE to be exact..LOL) and photographed from start to finish. Our wedding day photos will always be a reminder of that "special day". We couldn't have been more pleased. Hats off to Allure Photography.

Ruven was AMAZING!!!! He was our photographer for our wedding and he couldn't have captured it better! He was a complete pleasure to work with and on the day of the wedding he was very attentive to the desires my husband and I had for our picture ideas. He was also extremely patient with our huge bridal party while taking pictures. he truly let my husband and I sit in the creative drivers seat while also adding his professional touch when needed. The pictures came out gorgeous and they were complete and edited 2 weeks after our wedding! I highly recommend him and would love to use him again!

Ruven did a wonderful job capturing all the special moments at my wedding. I can't thank him enough for the amazing job that he did. I ended up buying the DVD of all my wedding pictures so that I could keep all the wonderful memories for years to come. He was very professional, and even called me a couple of days before my wedding just to talk and make sure everything was inline for that day. He was kind enough to answer all the questions that I had and accommodated all of my requests. I am very pleased with all my pictures and I would definitely recommend him to all the brides out there

I recently had my wedding at Lindsay Lakes in August and one week after being home from my honeymoon I had all of my pictures for review! I was so shocked by how Ruven was able to be every where all the time. He captured moments I was not able to see while making the rounds. The pictures turned out beautiful and he was so awesome to work with. He was very easy to get ahold of and he made it all so simple and comfortable. I am so happy with how it all turned out..now to sit down and pick my prints :)

Allure Photography did an outstanding job capturing our wedding day! From scheduling my Bridal's the week of the wedding, to capturing the final shot, Ruven was amazing! This vendor will take your breath away with what they are able to shoot. I never imagined that I would look like that in a picture! Ruven really did an awesome job helping me to feel comfortable in front of the camera, which can be intimidating if you aren't used to taking professional pictures. Allure photographers do such a beautiful job, you will be so pleased with the end product. Thank you Allure, and thank you Ruven for all of your hard work.

Allure Photography did an awesome job at capturing every special moment at my wedding! I got 2 photographers for my ceremony and 1 for my reception. I'm glad I did this because I got tons of great pictures and I got to see different things that I missed while I was busy being the bride, or things I forgot happened. I know I'll be able to look back on these pictures and remember every single second of the most important day of my life! I'm so happy I went with Allure - the quality and value are outstanding!

We decided to go with a first look, and I definitely recommend it to any brides who are not superstitious, it really helps to get some amazing pictures without being rushed because you want to get to your party!

I highly recommend Ruven and Allure Photography. Thanks again for everything Ruven!

Ruven at Allure Photography has a keen eye for detail; his photo settings are unique and original. He is very creative when it comes to setting up photo shoots, getting backgrounds and images that one wouldn't ordinarily think of. He was very open to meeting us several miles from Houston to take engagement pics in the country, which turned out phenominal. He also did our wedding photos, and we couldn't be more pleased. And the choices! Wow! He takes LOTS of pictures! Very professional. Very outgoing/friendly. You won't be disappointed.

Allure Photography is fabulous! From start to finish they were great to work with. They return phone calls and emails very promptly. They were patient with all of my questions, and flexible when my schedule had to change. The photos of my wedding are absolutely amazing. They capture the magic of the day in a way that I never expected. I love that their style goes from classic wedding photos to photo journalistic style photos and of course the very artsy photos! There was such a variety of photos to choose from! Ruven shot our wedding (and my bridal portraits) and the two biggest pieces of feedback I heard from guests at our wedding were 1) his attention to detail (during posed shots) and 2) how unobtrusive he was. The next time I (or anyone else in our families) need professional photos Allure Photography will be our first (and only!) phone call!

When we were looking for photographers, we had a fairly low budget and Allure Photography was one of the few photographers we could find online that had both prices within our range and high quality pictures/good shots. Ruven was by far the most professional and talented photographer we talked to. We got so many compliments both on his presence at our wedding and on the actual pictures. Ruven gets all the shots you want, all the angles you want, and all his pictures turned out amazing. He's very easy and personable to work with too and is willing to either suggest ideas or run with whatever you suggest. He's very responsive to all my emails, usually within just a few hours. I would 100% hire him again, there was absolutely nothing I didn't like about Allure. :)

With whim shooting my wedding and was extremely impressed he did a wonderful job and for a affordable price I would recommend him to anyone because not him I have amazing pictures to show my grandchildren children. He makes u feel comfortable and is very professional, he shoots amazing shots and tells u exactly how to pose, he's a perfectionist so if u have a strand of hair in ur face he will point it out to make u look ur best etc. He's awesome.

Thank you so much for making our wedding memorable for years to come. We knew we wanted to work with you from the moment you did my sister’s wedding 7 years ago. We have received nothing but wonderful comments about our photos. We will be recommending you to anyone who has a need of an excellent photographer. Thank you again Ruven for sharing our special day not just as a professional, but as a friend.

I couldn’t have asked for a better Photographer! Ruven was a pleasure to work with. I wish I could show everyone my album because he managed to capture the candid shots I wanted and the professional shots my mom wanted. Ruven is an excellent photographer and I would recommend him a million times over!! Mandi & Andre!!

We hired Ruven at Allure Photography for our engagement and wedding photos. He's such a friendly and easy going guy, so it made our photo sessions a lot of fun. We have received so many compliments on how beautiful our engagement photos turned out, and we are especially happy with our wedding photos! He was able to capture every little moment of our wedding day. And even with the challenge of the harsh Houston sunlight, the photos turned out great!

Allure Photography did the photography for my engagement party (about 300 guests) and my fiance and I were not only thoroughly pleased with the outcome of the pictures, but the photographer was an absolute delight to work with! He was very responsive before the event regarding phone calls and emails and the day of he was very pleasant and patient which is such a relief when the day is so hectic. My fiance and I can now cherish our memories from that day with some incredible photos that were so beautifully and elegantly captured by the photographer. We definitely felt like we got so much more than we paid for! Thank you Allure Photography!

Ruven was very professional and easy to take pictures with. He was such a hard worker and always there to take a picture. It seemed like every moment of the wedding was captured on film. He especially got the moment that I wanted to revist: the look on my husbands face when he first saw me walk down the aisle.

I was not really big on having a professional photographer at my wedding (my father-in-law is a great amateur photographer), but decided to hire Allure Photography for the event for the benefit of my photo-loving family. And I was so glad I did...

Ruven did a fantastic job photographing my wedding. We were able to get all of the photos done in a timely manner, and they all turned out great! Moreover, Ruven was able to capture some of the hilarious, off-the-cuff moments that make each wedding unique (like when one guest's girlfriend, who none of us knew, snatched the bouquet out of the hands of my friend who had caught it). Finally, Ruven was extremely patient with everyone, and was able to communicate clearly and efficiently what would look best in each photo.

Allure Photography was a great deal financially -- I feel that we got LOTS of high-quality, meaningful photos for a very good price.

I was a little worried about the lighting because my wedding was outside and it was dark by the end of the ceremony, but the pictures turned out great. Thanks!!!

5 years ago, My husband and I met Ruven with Allure Photography downtown Houston where he helped us create the most memorable and enjoyable photoshoot. Using our engagement photographs, he created the most beautifully, unique guest book that we used at our wedding. It has a permanent home on my coffee table, where my house guests can look through and share in the memories with us. Needless to say, we used Allure for our wedding as well and the photographs are breathtakingly beautiful. Love Allure Photography! Highly recommended.

They were very busy doing their work, but also nice and fun! I was thrilled with the prompt turnaround with the pictures ( less than 2 weeks!) and they turned out great! The photographer had great ideas for the pictures and also was sure to ask if there were any specific pictures I wanted. I would recommend Allure to anyone for any occasion!

Ruven with Allure Photography is definitely one of my favorite vendors from my wedding. This was my experience with him:

-I was a little nervous before the wedding because I really didn't talk to Ruven much at all leading up to the wedding. I live in California and had my wedding in Houston (my husband and I are from Houston), so my meeting or speaking with vendors was extremely limited.
-The day of the wedding Ruven was extremely nice and I was relieved that at the very least I was very comfortable with my photographer. He came across very experienced with weddings, knew what shots he wanted to get but at the same time very receptive to any requests I had.
-Throughout the reception I had -guests- compliment me on my photographer choice because they noted how he seemed to be everywhere getting shots. I got the same compliments the next day day.
-I got the pictures a little under two WEEKS after the wedding. Edited and online for us & our guests to look at. I don't know if that is normal but I was so excited to see that!
-My husband & I loved the pictures. I was actually a little surprised because I thought the pictures on the Allure website were just alright and worth the price, but when I saw my pictures I just loved them. We couldn't have wanted anything more.
-Ruven has been so timely about everything. The photos were posted quickly, as noted, and the DVD of pictures were sent shortly after that.

The only reason he didn't get a 5/5 is because I think the website is a little slow (and doesn't do him justice) and the pictures aren't the absolute best pictures I ever saw while looking online at wedding photos. But they're pretty close and for his price range, I would definitely say 5/5 ...or better!

Ruven did a great job with capturing those quite special moments during the wedding and engagement session.

We never spoke to the photographer before the wedding and didn't meet her until we arrived at the venue for the wedding. It ended up working out though and she was very friendly. I had to follow up with the pictures though, no one ever called me to tell me they were ready to view. They came with the package purchased through Lindsay Lakes so it was fine and the pictures turned out well.

Ruben was incredibly nice and took so many photos it took almost an hour to look at them all. He got shots of family, friends, decorations, the cakes, and so many other things. He was almost unnoticeable as he moved around the dance floor getting shots. I was over an hour late on my wedding day and he was so accommodating and never rushing me to get all the shots in. I am very happy that he came with the Lindsay Lakes package. His work is wonderful.

He actually was able to read our personalities. I say this because our personality is conveyed through our photos. He understood what we wanted, and what we needed. I would recommend Allure to all of my friends.

Allure photography was amazing. The photos were flattering and the editing looked great. They even choose some to do black and white and have my flowers stick out in color. I loved the effect it created. They took over 1000 photos of the wedding and reception. They captured the feel of the wedding and how much fun we had at our reception. I would highly recommend for future brides.

Alure Photography recently photographed our wedding October 23rd. Ruven and his team were all over our wedding and ceremony and very thorough. Even our family & friends commented on how the photographers were relentless in capturing all the special moments of our big day. They were efficient during the pre and ceremony shots so as to get us into our party as quickly as possible. Once there, we were able to simply enjoy ourselves and trust that Allure had all of our photos covered. When we received the links and DVD's - we were so impressed with how well Allure captured the "story of us". There were photos in there we didn't even remember, nor knew happened ... your wedding day is such a whirlwind that to see all of the photos was truly an amazing experience. It helped us re-live our day all over again, and even learn of other stories! I reccomend to future brides Allure Photography. My only advice would be to meet with them a few times beforehand to communicate your wants/needs. This ensures a solid plan & expectations for amazing results!

Reuben was a wonderful photographer. The best thing about Reuben working with Lindsay Lakes is he knew the venue like the back of his hand. He knew exactly where to take the best and most beautiful pictures.

Ruven was very helpful in coming up with ideas for the engagement shots that were unique and made us feel like we were getting not only photographs but artistic ideas in creating them. Also, my husband had one request on our wedding day: that the photographer be invisible and not ask to take too many posed shots. Ruven was invisible and the photos came out awesome and so many classic candid shots were taken. He and his team are really easy to work with and more than willing to accomodate a hectic schedule.
