I really didn't know what to expect from planning a wedding. But I knew that I wanted the best photo and video, because those are the only tangible memories you can look back on! I am so happy I went with Serendipity Photography. Alice and Eric were so easy going and made my husband and I feel so comfortable. From our initial engagement photo session, they were able to make us laugh and smile in such a natural way that we got so many compliments from people that our photos showed our true selves in such an effortless way. And because our wedding was actually a two-day event, things got chaotic in our planning. But Alice and Eric went with all the last minute changes so calmly and ALWAYS with a smile. Their respect and positive attitude towards myself and our entire family was amazing. Even our videographers came up to us at then end of our reception and tell us how happy they were to work with Alice and Eric because they were able to share the time and space to get the shots they needed. With them being a husband and wife team, you can definitely tell they knew how to work together for the benefit of the bride and groom. Even the secondary photographers they sent to take pre-wedding photos were so respectful and kind. They were so much fun to work with and I would definitely credit them to the smiles we had on camera. Also, because our wedding involved multiple ceremonies, things got confusing and we had no idea what we were doing. But they actually made our photos look like it was a smooth process. My bridesmaids would tell me that they didn't remember some parts of the ceremony happening because of the chaos. But seeing the photos, it looked like we knew exactly what was going on.
But most importantly, the quality of their work was better than I could ever have imagined. They can do all the posed shots you want and of course they come out great. But the candid ones that you probably thought no one saw or even happened; they were able to capture. When we received our wedding photos, our families sat there for hours reliving the entire wedding. The pictures were crisp, sharp, with vibrant colors. And really, the best part was seeing how happy my father was to see them. He is the most serious person I know, and hardly ever smiles. But when he saw our wedding photos, he smiled and laughed to the point where I cried just seeing how happy he was.
There are so many good things I have to say about Serendipity, which is why it took me so long to think of what to write. Each step of the way, they've been amazing. I cannot stress enough to my friends how happy I was with the level of service and quality of work we received from Serendipity. I cannot imagine going with anyone else. I absolutely believe they were worth every penny.
P.S. They are very reasonable in their timing when it comes to getting your proofs ready for viewing. I don't know how long other companies are, but I got my wedding proofs before some of my friends that got married nearly a year before me because they went with a different company. I was able to show family members previews of our photos before they left on their flights back home after the wedding.

Every bride has one thing that is their "have to have" for their wedding. Mine was Serendipity. The wedding day flew by and I focused on having fun and marrying the man of my dreams. I saw Alice and Eric periodically through the night, but never thought much of it.. until the next day. I have been anticipating my photos since my wedding day, and I was nervous how they would turn out because I was focusing on my wedding rather than posing for perfect pictures. My wedding photos are amazing... more than i could ever ask for. Alice and Eric captured every moment, even those I did not even know were happening, and their attention to detail is phenomenal. They were always present through every moment of the wedding, but never once stopped a moment or "intruded" on the party. Honestly, after engagement pictures and working with them throughout the day, they were like guests by the end of the night. If there is one area you are willing to "splurge," make sure it is Serendipity... they are worth every penny.. and then some.

Alice and Eric really weren't kidding when they said they get great action shots! One of our favorite photos was of fireworks going off in the background. But they're also very talented in still shots. I had a horrible makeup trial that made me look like a circus vampire and yet they managed to make me look decent. They took maybe like 800 pictures, and I think I liked over 200 pictures, which is pretty amazing for me. Very timely, very curteous, quick to respond to questions. A little pricey compared to some of the other vendors we considered, but it's your wedding, and mine went by in a blur and I really needed the pictures to remind me of what happened, so I felt this was good money spent.

Alice and Eric are young, fun, hip, and completely professional. They are laid back and easygoing to work with, and help put you at ease during your photo shoots. They find great light and take beautiful photos. On our wedding day, they also took several fantastic photos "behind the scenes" that I didn't even realize until the proofs came out -- and worked quickly and efficiently throughout the day, catching lots of great candid shots. They worked so efficiently that we were even able to get in an extra impromptu "bridal portrait" session at the church on the day of the wedding. We really appreciated how quickly they got all the photo proofs to us for both our engagement session and for the wedding -- it only took a couple of weeks each time. In addition, just 3 days after the wedding, they sent us a wonderful gift of a wedding photo highlight album that we could share with family and friends. Everyone in our wedding party was impressed with their work, and we have gotten amazing comments to the photos on Facebook. :) Serendipity has a number of different wedding photo packages that can suit a variety of needs. I also enjoyed their initial presentation where they displayed their mad photoshop skills. :) Very highly recommended!

After interviewing several photographers in Houston/Sugar Land area, I fell in love with Eric and Alice. When you conduct interviews, you aren't just critiquing them for their skills, but how they connect with you on a personal level... and that's exactly what Eric and Alice did for my husband and I. We connected. They were people that I could see being my friends and also knowing what I wanted to capture on my special day. They did a great job capturing emotions that I want to look back on and remember and relive every time I look at the pictures. It was a team effort to be able to look great and have beautiful pictures taken at the very right moment. Because of Eric and Alice's talent, I can always look at my pictures and remember my special day. If you want a team that understands what kind of pictures you want and has a very talented eye, Serendipity is the one!!

Serendipity Photography exceeded all of my expectations from the engagement photos to the wedding photos. Eric & Alice were wonderful to work with -- not only taking wonderful photos and capturing so many 'just at the right time' special moments that we didn't even know were being captured, but being simply wonderful people to work with. They made us feel totally comfortable & were so easy going. It was so effortless, yet yielded absolutely BEAUTIFUL results. We were so pleased with our choice and I would definitely say, go with Serendipity if you don't want to worry about anything when it comes to your photography. They are so professional and made everything so easy. Our photos looked AMAZING - better than we could have imagined!

I've known Alice and Eric for almost 8 years and knew even back in 2006 that I wanted them to be my wedding photographers...once that day came. Seven years later, that day became a reality!
Even in their earliest days, their photography always absolutely amazed me. I read every blog entry and couldn't wait to see every new beautiful photo - my computer could never load the images fast enough!
Not only are we so blessed to have know them for so long - they are a wonderfully sweet and funny couple, but just as I knew they would, they captured our big day absolutely beautifully. I am really camera-shy and never think I look good in any photos, but they totally pulled it off - I actually think I looked really pretty in the photos! So many wonderful photos! I love them all. We even had our two dogs and my huge family at the wedding and we got the most *perfect* family photo EVER - even the dogs were smiling and facing the camera! All our photos will be treasured forever, but that photo definitely holds a special place in our hearts. Moments like that are only captured by a true professional. Serendipity Photography is absolutely the best!

We are very happy to have Serendipity on our big day. We love Alice and Eric's passion and profession for their amazing work!! Great services, great artistry, and most important of all, they have great and caring personality! During our discussion prior to our wedding, they brought up tons of fresh ideas and tips to help and guide us. We feel so strongly supported on our wedding day knowing that we have Serendipity with us to capture our most beautiful moments. Our photos turn out so beautifully and even comes with a neat app for us to view them on the mobile devices anytime we want. :) We love it!!!
They are so professional, very experienced, and fun to work with! I highly recommend them!! They are the BEST!

Eric and Alice of Serendipity are gifted artists, and we feel blessed to have had the pleasure of working with them for our only daughter's wedding. The quality of the photography is flawless. They are amazing professionals, and they were able to take all of the wonderful moments of our very special day and capture them in such a beautiful way. Eric and Alice also did an exceptional job on our daughter's engagement photos and bridal portraits. They were extremely fast in developing the 2 chosen portraits to be displayed at the reception. Several guests at the reception asked who our photographer was and commented that the portraits were exquisite. Not only are they talented artists, but they are very sweet and personable. I highly recommend them.

I always knew I wanted Serendipity as my wedding photographer way before I got engaged. A really good friend of mine, who was also my officiant, had Alice and Eric photograph their wedding. Their pictures were so gorgeous and after looking at the rest of their portfolio, I knew I had to meet them when I started vendor shopping. Honestly, they were the only photography vendor that I met with and I knew right after our meet and greet that I wanted to sign with them and I did!
Alice and Eric are a wife and husband team and when you work with them you'll notice right away how well they work together and the number of ideas they bounce off of each other. Their photos are modern, but timeless. They did our engagement session, tea ceremony, and wedding. What's so great about them is that not only you have the standard staged posing, but their candid photos are just as amazing. We received so many photos from every event. Alice and Eric were great in making my husband feel comfortable during our engagement photos. During the wedding, they were totally non-obtrusive and still delivered AMAZING photos. Also, because of my culture, there were a lot of changes that were made during the process and Alice and Eric were very understanding AND accommodating. That is a huge plus in my book! They were answered all of our questions and concerns in a very timely manner.
A couple of days after the wedding, we got this neat mobile app that had some highlights of the wedding day. I thought this was a cute way of getting a sneak peak into some of our photos :)
We highly recommend Alice and Eric for your next wedding. Their work is phenomenal; if you want photos that will last a lifetime, book Serendipity!

Alice and Eric, with Serendipity Photography, are an extraordinary team! They came highly recommended for our daughters wedding on December 29, and after having had the ‘Serendipity Experience’ we can certainly understand why! They are incredibly easy to work with, very prompt in getting back to us with any and all questions or concerns we might have had - but more importantly, they are an extremely talented team in their vision and creativity.
With two camera’s, two photographers, there were twice as many memorable moments that were caught than might otherwise have been. Eric and Alice did not impose themselves into our event, rather with their gentle handling they captured our very unique occasion in a way that we will cherish for a lifetime. We had such a surprise when within just a few days of the wedding we received a small preview of some of the more exceptional pictures to come - what a gift so soon following such a personal time!
We would fully and wholeheartedly recommend that you do your best to make sure that Alice and Eric, who are Serendipity Photography, are there for your wedding or next special event!

When searching for photographers for our wedding, Stephen and I knew what we wanted...someone who not only created beautiful pictures, but someone who captured "us"...our personalities and nuances. Serendipity did not disappoint. Alice and Eric are fun, easy to work with, and extremely talented. Every step of the way, they were there to help us and better our experience. The day of the wedding, they were always working, but NEVER in the way...and we couldn't be happier with the results. We can't say enough how much we enjoyed having them as a part of our celebration!!

Alice and Eric were very professional and they worked very personally with me. They even helped us with some of our wedding decisions and helped provide information for us. They were very patient and helpful with us too when it came to selecting photos for the albums. Alice and Eric worked very fast, and there were lots of great photos at the end. Overall, I was very happy to have them as my photographer for my wedding.

Eric and Alice are absolutely wonderful! They are so genuine, funny, and a blast to work with. We took our engagement pictures with them and they did the photography at our wedding. We were so happy with the results of both! The engagement session was a lot of fun, they have great ideas and do amazing things with light and color. My husband and I both felt we look better in our pictures than in real life!
I was sooo excited to get our wedding pictures! Eric and Alice worked their butts off at our wedding and I knew the results would be wonderful! Eric is like a ninja, he was everywhere, and getting shots of everything. I was on a cloud during our ceremony and reception and don't remember much of what happened. But our pictures told the story to us! Eric and Alice captured all of the important moments and all of the fun our guests had on the dance floor! We couldn't be happier with the results! Serendipity is pretty expensive, but pictures are the most important part of your wedding - they capture the life-long memories of the best day of your life, and it's so important to have someone in charge that you trust!

We love Alice & Eric!!
My husband & I used Serendipity for engagement photos (even though we already had some done-- their style of photography is just so beautiful that we kept it in our package),Bridal Session, Rehearsal Dinner & Wedding photos. They are so genuinely kind that taking photos with them is so easy; just like hanging out & having a good time... which, in turn, makes for beautiful & candid photos.
Alice & Eric (& everyone they work with) are eternal professionals & that is something every bride values with so many things to keep track of. As much as we like them & would've loved to have them as guests, we hardly saw them during our events because they were gliding through the crowd, capturing moments.
I will absolutely use them for any & all big lifetime events and will recommend them to anyone I know looking for truly wonderful photos of a special moment/day/event.
Thanks, Serendipity!!!! :)

After being in a friend's wedding who used Serendipity Photography, I didn't even research any other photographers when I got engaged because Alice and Eric impressed me so much. We tweaked our package to include rehearsal dinner and wedding day coverage, instead of engagement pictures. The pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous! Alice and Eric have a very unique style that translates beautifully in the pictures. They were a pleasure to work with. I strongly recommend this husband/wife duo!

After meeting Alice and Eric, I knew our pictures would turn out amazing with their unique husband and wife dynamic. Serendipity Photography shot the engagement (November 2011), bridal portrait (April 2012) and wedding photos (June 2012) which all turned out amazing! I thought that Alice and Eric especially did an outstand job on my bridal portrait session. The photographs turned out absolutely incredible. I recommend Serendipity Photography to all Houston, TX brides.

Serendipity was absolutely amazing! I would definitely give them more than 5 stars if I could! From the moment you meet Alice & Eric they're such a fun and kind couple, willing to go the extra mile. We had the pleasure of taking engagement photographs, bridal portraits and wedding photographs with them and we could not be more pleased with the finished product, and all the compliments we've received can only further prove how wonderful our photographs came out. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication Serendipity, as you made this brides stressful planning much easier!

Alice and Eric were wonderful to work with. They were flexible in the payment structure, have easy-going personalities, and are super accommodating. The pictures are not ready yet (the reason I can't comment fully on the "Quality" yet), but I think they'll be great!

Serendipity is a fun, creative, and professional group to work with. They did a beautiful job with our engagement photos, bridal session, and wedding. We loved all of the photographs and also the beautiful photo books we ordered through them. One of my favorite things about working with Serendipity is their calming demeanor. It's a crazy day and the last thing I would have wanted is a photographer yelling at me to look one way or pose here. They managed to capture every moment beautifully. I would highly recommend them.
