Amy Watson Photography is a husband and wife team. Their business is based in Houston, Texas and they focus on Senior Photography and Wedding Photography. As a famous wedding photographer Houston, Ben and Amy are usually very busy. That’s why we feel so lucky to have the chance for a sit-down interview with them and we talked for hours about photography, inspiration, and life in general.
Here are some of the most interesting things I learned about this duo:
- Can you tell us something about yourself?
Amy: We’re a husband and wife team, we’ve been shooting for a few years now and I think working with your partner is fun.
Ben: Yes, we’ve been working together for quite a while now and what I love most about us doing the same thing is that we can bond while on the job, exchange ideas for the improvement of the shoot. You know, sometimes I feel like this craft is bringing us closer together.
- How will you describe your style?
Amy: I think our style is more on bringing the natural beauty of our clients by making them feel comfortable during the shoot. Also, it comes down to making all the other elements blend in with the scene, especially the couple’s personalities. For example, if you have a couple who loves the beach very much, it is only fitting to have the shoot on the beach and let them frolic around the water. This setting usually gives us candid, powerful images that capture pure happiness and love.
Ben: I agree. Also, our style is, I think, a combination of photojournalism, you know, telling a story with pictures. Whenever we’re commissioned to do a shoot, it helps to know the couple’s story and try to reflect it on the images that we capture. Also, I love to play around with fashion and I think wardrobe can make or break a shoot.
- Where do you usually get your inspiration?
Amy: Ben and I have different sources of inspiration, but I think, as a team, we would agree that our biggest source of inspiration is our clients themselves. Nothing can beat the satisfaction of seeing your clients gush about how beautiful they are in the pictures. Also, we always love it when we’re there to capture a very special moment, you know, a proof that true love still exist!
Our clients were the reason why our work has been featured in many publications including national ones. We’ve also won several awards for our work in wedding photography.
Ben: I agree. I think photography can bring out the emotions that a situation evokes, I remember when I saw a Manhattan newborn photographer’s exhibition and I am just taken by the images that was shown, like you would really realize how magical it is to have a newborn in front of you.Read More
