Blue Elm Photography


Blue Elm Photography is a local Houston and destination wedding photographer dedicated to providing top wedding photography, engagement photos, and portrait photography services to engaged couples.

Principal photographer Juan Medrano has always studied photography, beginning first with landscapes – for which he was twice published with National Geographic – and expanding into portraits of people, couples and weddings and special events. He eventually put his profession in the medical field on the back burner to pursue wedding photography and has not looked back. Using technical skill and an artistic love for all things beautiful, Blue Elm Photography has fast become a trusted and talented Houston wedding photographer and destination wedding photographer.  

"Art has always been a part of my life. If there is one thing in this world that I can honestly say was worth doing in my life, it would be that I enjoyed photographing the beauty of happiness.

One of the most beautiful moments in life is when two people decide to walk a path together and discover the beauty of it all - and I love being a part of that!  I wholeheartedly believe that your wedding and engagement photos leave a story…your inspired moments held forever, presenting your love story of joy, friendship and harmony. 

Our memories are passed on to our loved ones with photographs. Let's preserve the memories of your special day and create some art together… it will be fun! Message me to set up a consultation."

Client Testimonials

“We chose Juan after we saw his photos from the wedding of our close friends. He was fantastic to work with! We had some ideas for our engagement and wedding, and he went above and beyond to give us more than we ever could have asked. We now have his photos throughout our home. His passion, enthusiasm, patience, and care in crafting each shot was incredible. Making the decision to entrust him with capturing these moments has helped us enjoy the memories even more!”- Dee & Jian

“They say that rain on your wedding day is a blessing. If that’s the case, then we will be blessed for 100 years. It was pouring on our special day. It rained from 12 pm to 10 pm non-stop. We couldn’t predict the magical pictures that Juan would create. We are constantly being complimented for such beautiful pictures by our friends and family. My wife, Audrey and I are so grateful that Juan was able to capture all the details of our very special day and now we can say we are truly blessed!” - Audrey & Ramiro

“Juan is a true artist with his photography. He has such a unique vision! He pays so much attention to detail, he was able to capture little moments and items I would have otherwise missed if it hadn’t been for him. He has such a fun energy as well. He is great about yelling out for fun, sometimes unexpected, shots like the last shot of our wedding where he ran up the stairs and essentially got my husband and I with all of our wedding guests. A perfect visual guest book and a total surprise!” - Courtney & Chris
