Austin & Kimberly

My husband and I recently married in Houston. We wanted a photographer who would fully capture the most special day of our lives, so we searched for the best. We searched for Houston photographers on the web and discovered Allure Photography. Allure photography not only captured the beauty of our ceremony and reception, but they also captured the love between my husband and I. The photographers were professional and extremely helpful. We will never be able to fully express our gratitude for the beautiful work Allure Photography completed on the day of our wedding. I personally recommend Allure Photography for anyone who desires pictures that encompass meaning.

Cherish & Todd

I can not recommend Ruven and Allure Photography enough! He was wonderful! He was completely professional and the results were worth double what we paid, in my opinion. We even asked Ruven to follow us to our boutique hotel to take some really artistic shots there after the reception and without question... he did. He is a wonderful photographer with a really great eye for unique pictures, but he also is able to capture very traditional photos as well. Allure was my favorite vendor that I worked with during my wedding. Amanda & Kenny

Todd and I cannot express to you how grateful we are for all that you have done in helping us capture our special day. From the moment we met you, you put our minds at ease, making the huge decision of choosing a photographer a simple task. We are so very impressed with your work from our engagement and bridal shots, to your ability to capture some of the most precious moments of our wedding. We also appreciate the way you handled yourself during our wedding and reception, doing everything in your power to lead and direct our bridal party without adding any undue stress. Most of all, we appreciate you making yourself available to help us fulfill our dreams in being able to exquisitely capture the most important day of our lives

Cristy and Andy Pena

Truthfully, we cannot say enough good things about Allure Photography.

The professionalism and dedication that Ruven Rivera demonstrated in the pursuit of his craft was very much recognized and appreciated by both of us. It was very evident in how his efforts translated into a top quality product!

Personally, I have enjoyed photography as a hobby for over 30 yrs. (probably longer than Ruven has been alive)! I was very, very impressed as were other members of my family, with the time and attention that Ruven spent in attempting to utilize the existing light in the best manner possible for each and every shot. He did this on the wedding pics, as well as the engagement pics, and the results are a testament to his attention to detail. Excellent stuff!!!

Also, Ruven went to great lengths to establish good rapport with us, and particularly with the star of the night... my bride. At times I thought he was muscling in on my action! lol. The friendliness between him and my wife had me feeling as though I should be holding the camera! But sincerely, all kidding aside, this is precisely what ensured that the results ended up being as natural looking, and not staged, as was possible. His degree of expertise and professionalism was comforting, and a breath of fresh air in an otherwise busy and distracting evening for us.

We both feel we made the right choice by going with Allure, and we both feel we have made a friend for life by allowing Ruven to document our most wonderful night!

We highly recommend him! Great Job!

I just want to extend a warm thanks for the incredible photos you took at our wedding. You captured the spirit of the event with such style and beauty. Even though I have looked through them countless times, I get pleasure out of every photo as if I were seeing it for the first time. The pictures will always be a treasure to us and I thank you for the work and artistry that you put into them. We also appreciated your expert advice and easy nature throughout the wedding festivities. It was a pleasure to work with you.

Jaclyn McDuff

Ruven was an absolute joy to work with. The first thing that impressed us about him is how fast he responded to my first email requesting information. We met with him and after looking at the quality of pictures he took, we decided on the way home that we were going to use him. We gave Ruven a list of pictures that we would like to be taken at the wedding, and he did a great job capturing the shots. He used some neat effects that made the pictures so original and everyone was impressed with what he did. His prices don’t match the quality that we received. Also, it was neat to have the pictures posted online so that family and friends could view and order them just a few weeks after the wedding. We made a great choice booking Ruven, and I would recommend him in a heartbeat! Thanks again for everything!

Janet Polka

I can't even begin to express how pleased Jennifer and I were with the photography service you provided for Jennifer and Kyle's wedding. From the engagement photo shoot to the wedding day, you made it such a fun experience for all of us! I had told you at our initial meeting about how Jennifer was never happy with any photos of herself, but you changed all of that! When I saw the beautiful engagement shots that you had done, I knew the wedding shots would be fantastic. You designed Jennifer's album to tell a beautiful story of a beautiful day that she will cherish forever. Nothing was missing! Viewing the proofs online was enjoyable as well. It made sharing the memories and ordering enlargements so easy! Thank you again for everything, I will continue to recommend you to friends and family.

Janet Deschamps

Allure Photography did an outstanding job on my daughter's wedding pictures, From the engagement pictures and the bridal session to the whole wedding day, Ruven was able to capture the moments as they happened. When friends who were not able to attend the wedding saw the pictures, they all commented that it looked like we were really having fun. The typical wedding pictures were great, but we especially loved the more creative photos.One of my favorite shots is of my husband and I as we are watching the ceremony. Thank you, Ruven!

You were always prompt at getting back to us...We have had so many fantastic comments from others about our wedding pictures and bridal portraits. You are truly a very talented photographer.

We don't know how you managed to be everywhere to get all those shots!

My husband and I had a tight budget, but everyone had told us that we shouldn't compromise on the quality of our photographer - your wedding day goes so quickly that good photographs are crucial! Luckily, with Allure, we didn't have to compromise on quality or on our budget. I know this must sound like a cheesy fake ad, but it's true. Our pictures look fantastic, and Ruven worked extremely diligently to make sure that we got those "perfect shots." He truly went above and beyond, including working an extra two hours when a huge thunderstorm made lighting verytricky for my bridal portraits! In addition to his obvious talent and hard work, he was very diplomatic (which, I've found, is a necessary skill at weddings). I highly recommend him with no reservations. Cheers.

I was not really big on having a professional photographer at my wedding (my father-in-law is a great amateur photographer), but decided to hire Allure Photography for the event for the benefit of my photo-loving family. And I was so glad I did...

Ruven did a fantastic job photographing my wedding. We were able to get all of the photos done in a timely manner, and they all turned out great! Moreover, Ruven was able to capture some of the hilarious, off-the-cuff moments that make each wedding unique (like when one guest's girlfriend, who none of us knew, snatched the bouquet out of the hands of my friend who had caught it). Finally, Ruven was extremely patient with everyone, and was able to communicate clearly and efficiently what would look best in each photo.

Allure Photography was a great deal financially -- I feel that we got LOTS of high-quality, meaningful photos for a very good price.

I loved working with Allure Photography. My personal photographer was Mr. Fernando. He was awesome and got a lot of great shots!!!! Allure Photography was very professional and took care of all that was asked and more. I really enjoyed working with them and I am sincerely glad things worked out out for us. We found them, booked them, paid them, and loved them!!!

Allure Photography is the way to go! We absolutely love every single one of our pictures! Every special moment was caught on camera! Ruven, was flexible and responsive to our needs. He actually was able to read our personalities. I say this because our personality is conveyed through our photos. He understood what we wanted, and what we needed. I would recommend Allure to all of my friends.
