CALLING ALL HOUSTON BRIDES…
I want to get my engagement photos done at Rice (as a current student there). Do you ladies know of a reasonably priced photographer who could do pictures before the event and during the event (engagement party)? I’m looking for someone who is good at what they do, but is able to meet my smaller budget (as I am a student). Maybe Miss Chick will know.

If your engagement party is on a Friday or Saturday night, it may be hard to find an experienced/veteran photographer for the price you’re probably hoping for. I’m guessing you’d have to pay wedding-type rates for a multiple hour event on a weekend night (I could be totally wrong though!). Have you considered hiring a photographer who is just starting out and trying to build a portfolio to shoot your engagement party? Try posting a request on Houston Craigslist. If you end up liking the photographer, you could use her/him for your engagement photos, and if not, you can find someone with more experience to do them.
I wish I had a good recommendation for you of a specific photographer, but I don’t 🙁 The photographer who shot my engagement and wedding photos is amazing, but she was definitely my budget splurge. My reception was at CoHo (I’m a Rice alum-go Owls), and she took amazing portraits of me and my husband at Lovett Hall that I love. I’m sure you’ll love your engagement photos at Rice too – good luck!
