Our Boho Glam Bridal Shower was beautifully captured by two photography teams. Ten23 is a dear friend of ours, and we adore Gabe and Robby, their personalities and photography style. They graciously captured this event, and offered to lend a bit of a helping hand to another photographer friend looking to get into wedding photography who was there the same day. Ten23 Photography is located in Bryan, College Station, Texas, and based out of a cute little shop in downtown Bryan called Market 1023. We have had the great pleasure of working with them multiple times over the last year, creating breathtaking images together of natural, industrial and boho glam themes. His light and airy take on photography is absolutely wonderful.
The Who Behind the Business - Robby and Gabe
Robby and Gabe are the duo behind the cameras. The stellar use of natural light that Ten23 Photography emphasizes creates a light and airy aesthetic throughout all of their pictures. Somehow they always get the perfect angle of a picture. If you’re anything like us, you create beautiful tablescapes or scenes around your home or event, but still can’t get the natural beauty to shine through a photograph. Ten23 always seems to translate the joy and love we feel for a certain scene into the perfect picture. It’s not all the time that you get the same feeling looking at a picture as you do looking at an object, but somehow Ten23 photography allows us to do just that.
Mary Beth and I were lucky enough to have them join us in photographing Mary Beth’s bridal shower. Seeing as they were the photographer for Mary Beth’s wedding, we were hoping from the beginning that they would be able to come shoot parts of the shower. Beside the fact that their style fit perfectly with our vision for this shower.
Thankfully they love Mary Beth so much that we were able to snag them from their crazy busy lives (remember they run 2 companies: photography and store...WOW). Ever walk into a store and just want to buy everything in it? That’s pretty much what the second company, Market 1023, is like. But that’s completely off topic (seriously though go check it out).
The Artistic Eye
They are always a joy to work with, sure to get pictures of what you have envisioned as well as pictures that stand out to them. Honestly, more times than not we don’t even have to express what our vision is. They so perfectly find the beautiful moments and capture it with such ease. Thank goodness for photographers right? These guys DEFINITELY know what they are doing, and we cannot praise them enough for it!
While Ten23 took pictures of details, designs and florals for the bridal shower, they also have an insane talent of taking breathtaking pictures of people (no way...a photographer taking pictures of people??). Yes this is the main reason you hire a photographer, but we always say the main key to hiring a photographer is making sure that they make you feel beautiful and comfortable. I remember being there when Mary Beth got she and Garrett’s engagement pictures back. She was in complete awe with how beautiful she felt in EVERY picture. This not only made my friend heart happy, but also my planner heart! We strive for our brides to feel like the most beautiful and delicate princess on their big day. To have a photographer that creates this feeling no matter the setting is more than ideal!
The pictures for Mary Beth’s shower were no different than any of the others produced by Ten23. They perfected showcased the similar colors between our florals and lounge pieces. They brought the Boho Glam bridal shower theme to life. I remember getting these pictures in and not being able to pick a favorite because every new one I clicked through got me all giddy and excited all over again.
Yes we could go on and on about these guys. Their attention to detail, their fun spirit, their insanely amazing style. But we’ll keep it somewhat short and sweet, they are truly amazing. But don’t take our word for it. Go check them out yourselves!
Here’s to Ten23 Photography and the many times we get the pleasure of working with them again in the future!!
