A few weeks ago I had the honor to photograph Christine and Justin’s wedding at Cherie Flores Garden Pavilion, Hermann Park, Houston.
We start with getting ready shots at the bride’s parents home. As the afternoon breaks, we head toward Hermann Park and the Cherie Flores Garden Pavilion. Serving as the primary entryway to the Gardens and extends a striking view of a 30-foot garden mount across the broad Centennial Green. For sure, the Pavilion is an elegant venue for weddings.

Christina and Justin’s wedding was a gorgeous and relaxed wedding with a BBQ style buffet surrounded by family and friends. Both are a lovely couple to work with, and I felt quite at home as they trusted me just to shoot, thanks to their familiarity with my style and documentary approach.
Thanks to exceptional photographer Miranda Laine who helped me as a second photograph this wedding.

Below is a curated selection of images that I’m especially fond of for numerous reasons including geometry, design, emotion and of course, telling the couples day. Leave your love in the comments below and share the link.



Absolutely beautiful work from beginning to end! Such great moments!

Hey! I'm Philip Thomas

All-Inclusive Wedding Day Storytelling

If you like what you see, reach out! I have a cool English accent; I’m dashing, handsome and funny – so my wife says. Seriously though, I love the craft of photography, I’m a former news photographer and a documentary street photographer. I capture weddings throughout Texas from a fly on the wall perspective. You’ll not notice me. My photos are candid and delightfully artistic with a splash of color and monochrome.
