Now that you and your honey have decided to partner up, it’s time to do the same with a Houston wedding photography and videography dream team! Cue Addison J Wedding Photography & Videography, the talented photo and video company founded by dynamic husband-and-wife duo, Elan and Kory Fontenot.
Elan and Kory, who specialize respectively in videography and photography, pride themselves in being able to capture both the sights and sounds of your wedding day without interfering with one another. We asked them to share with us some of their favorite moments captured on film. Keep reading to see their beautiful images, both moving and still, and discover their take on documenting your wedding day, each in their own words!
Relishing in the Romance — Nicholas and Nikoya’s Crystal Ballroom wedding was the epitome of love on display. Their elated expressions and bashful grins throughout the night touched the hearts of their family and closest friends.
Little Ones — There is nothing like having an adorable child carry a sign down the aisle, in advance of the bride and groom, to ease wedding-day tension, and get everyone laughing.
Destination Sessions — We love to travel the world, and destination weddings are always extra special. The Golden Gate Bridge was a perfect backdrop for Anthone and Ashley. We can’t wait to capture their love in a California vineyard at their upcoming wedding.
A Gushing Groom — Some men do not like taking engagement photos. But after we ease their nerves and they get comfortable in front of the lens, their love and affection can be felt from both sides.
Bridal Portraits — Kristen brought her A-game to her bridal shoot at The Corinthian. Her gorgeous lace dress, and the grand columns and uplighting, set the stage for us to get the perfect shot.
Welcome Mr. and Mrs. — Jacob and Gabby were so elated the moment they were introduced as Mr. and Mrs. The crowd went wild, and this moment made all the planning and waiting worthwhile.
Letting Loose — This is the moment when all the major events are over and the bride and groom can let their hair down and dance. The Bartons are both doctors and have stressful jobs, so it was awesome to see them let loose on the dance floor.

“We all move in a certain, particular way, and we each have subtle idiosyncrasies that are an essential part of our being—” says wedding filmmaker Anna Boyter of Bear Hands Media Group, “the way we look at our parents, the way we wait impatiently, the way we lean into each other in love.”
Ah, yes. The way we lean into each other in love. Please, right now, take a moment and look at this Bear Hands wedding video of Hadley & Johnny’s nuptials (and linger on about 3:45 – 3:48 for a “lean into each other moment” that’ll set your heart going pitter-pat):
There is something about a beautifully shot, masterfully edited wedding video that captures not just the moments of the day, but the feeling of it—the tenderness and also the humor, the magic and exhilaration of romance but also the warmth and security of family. As a painter and a videographer both, Boyter has an incredible gift for crafting wedding videos that are both aesthetically beautiful and deeply affecting. And with Bear Hands Media Group, she surrounds herself with a team of like-minded videography talents who do the same.
One of our favorite new Bear Hands Media Group offerings is the “Motion Bridal Session”—a short, on-location, cinematic “bridal portrait” that captures the bride in all her wedding glory, in a relaxed pre-wedding videography session that can done simultaneously with your bridal photography. You guys, this is SUCH a cool film option…and such an awesome gift to hand down for generations to come!! Check it out:
We’ll be hanging with Bear Hands all through the week, on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, so make sure to check in with us for more fabulous films from Boyter and her crew, including wedding trailers, wedding highlight reels and still captures. And if you book your Bear Hands Media Group wedding videography by April 30, MAKE SURE to mention you found them on Weddings in Houston’s blog—you’ll get 15% off!!
Happy wedding planning, lovelies…and congratulates on your starring role in the romance of a lifetime!
