If you are very detail-oriented, getting married not the first time and you know exactly what to do – you are fine! But do make sure to contact him first or don’t tell him he is not your first choice cuz it concerns Tony if he is not your FIRST option. He only wants to work with people “who like his work” – but you won’t get any consultation (even if you ask for it) until everything is over and then you will get a response – “If I knew that from the beginning I would just quit without arranging any session with you.” As I already expressed to Tony – the whole purpose of the consultation is to get the feeling of the customer and learn if you can meet the expectations. Yet, it takes courage and the assurance in the quality of work to take this step. Which he is clearly lacking. Money comes first prior to any conversations.
I'm getting married first time and obviously, all of this is new experience to me that I was hoping to enjoy. I was looking to the advices and suggestions from Tony; I needed to hear the plan of action that I asked him for; yet didn't hear anything defined. I needed to know what he wanted us to do; his professional suggestions on better poses. I was fully relying on his “professionalism”. Unfortunately, his “catching-naturally-flowing-moments” style with closed eyes, weird looking faces, shadows on faces and totally awkward backgrounds – didn’t work for me! Even the flowers looked like a bag until I saw and fixed it myself. Keep in mind he captures what HE considers best – so turn off your imagination.
Last but not least – No matter how many highlights you bring to table about your frustration – the response is “I like the pictures” – I just wonder why you need customers if you are in love with your own work?
Cherry on top of the cake, “about 15 photos for the album, this is not that bad. I believe you won't get 100% hit photos from any photographer”.This is the response from the professional photographer who promised you 80-100 edited photos

Tony is awesome. We chose him because he has been in the business for over 20 years and truly understands what it takes to be a photographer. He just doesn't take photos. Every single photo he takes is perfect. Not like an amateur photographer. Can't wait to see our Highlight Video.

Finding the perfect photographer was the hardest part for us! Tony was very helpful in aiding our decision. We went to his office and saw recent shoots from weddings and engagements. His quality of work was hard to miss! We took our engagement shoot at the botanical gardens and at the waterwall in Houston. He took over 500 pictures! The perfect picture was found because he was right there to take numerous shots of the same pose. He brought life to the setting and made us look beautiful. We received our pictures within a few weeks and we were so happy with the quality and the amount of pictures that were display worthy.
At our wedding, Tony unfortunately could not be there due to a death in the family. He sent two of his coworkers and they did not disappoint! They were there for every event, took pictures of all the decorations and made the effort to get every shot I asked for. The wedding pictures are unreal. We could not have chosen a better photographer and would highly recommend Tony Houston to any bride and groom!

I was sent here by my wedding planner, Mary Rios. We had called several different photographers around the area but their prices were insane (especially for their experience level and work quality). However, after seeing the pictures from my sister's wedding (really bad), I was more willing to spend on top quality. Tony Houston was definitely the most expensive vendor we used, but the most worth it! Trust me, your wedding day will be the biggest blurr of your life! It goes so quickly and you will be sad you didn't get to say hi to everyone. The pictures remind you of who was there, how it looked, and are the one way you will hold onto that day! Definitely worth it! Our pictures turned out beautifully and he was worth every penny!! (note - he was still a better value than 80% of the people we called!!) Very professional and great quality.

Tony Houston Photography takes amazing photos! There's a nice mix of formal and informal in his set, so we have something everybody can frame and remember. He is very focused during the wedding and with his experience has a very good sense of timing-he can give orders when he has to to keep things moving and get people to the reception quickly.

Tony also took our engagement photos and with sophisticated camera use turned a drizzly, cloudy day at Hermann Park into something very colorful for us. I think he really enjoys being behind the camera and he was very receptive to our ideas about photo poses & locations.

Tony's price also came in at $500-$600 less than competitors for an engagement session, 6 hours of wedding photos, 3 enlarged prints and a 10x10 photo album! Compared to many of the vendors we hired for our wedding, his value was the best.

Tony photographed my wedding at Ashton Gardens in Houston and did a superb job! He took pictures at many different angles and took the time to get the perfect shot. He was very positive and upbeat which made the photo shoot after the ceremony enjoyable.

Tony and his staff did a fantastic job at the wedding and the reception. The pictures were amazing!. My daughters bridal pictures were fantastic and it was hard to decide which one to use. Tony made everyone feel at ease and got a lot of fun pictures. He went the extra mile when I forgot the frame for my daughter's bridal portrait the day before the wedding but he was able to get a beautiful frame done and have it there for the wedding reception. He had several photographers there so everything and every angle was covered Thanks Tony!!

Tony took my Bridal pictures and made me feel like a beautiful bride. The pictures came out great there where so many good pictures it was hard to choose just one to use at the reception. David and his wife were there for our wedding day and they also did an amazing job every one of my guest commented on how much they liked my photographers.

Tony assured us prior to our wedding that he would be there himself at our wedding on the day of our wedding we get to young what appear to be assistants to take video and photos. The few poses they had us do were awful and when we got the photos I was less than impressed, I felt like what should have been beautiful memories were ruined by two less than amateur photographers /videograghers. When I said something to Tony he immediately got very upset and said they took good pictures and I should be happy. I would not recommend Tony Houston Photography, spend the extra money and get someone more reliable.
