Today’s photographer interview is with Elisheva of Elisheva Golani Photography based in Houston, TX! Enjoy:
Tell us a bit about yourself and your company
We are a husband and wife photography team (Daniel & Elisheva) and view every photo that we capture as a work of art. We strive to constantly be creative and to think “outside the box”. For us, there is no greater pleasure than the fun we have with our clients and the beautiful pictures we leave them with. We are based in Houston, Texas, but love to travel!

How did you get into wedding photography?
Photography was always something that interested us. We both played around with film photography in college and right before we got married, I bought m first DSLR. We started off with portrait sessions, then events, and ultimately weddings which is our favorite!
What is your favorite part of the wedding day to capture?
The portraits of the couple! Whether it’s a first look or after the ceremony, the couple is so happy and in love, its no doubt our favorite moment to capture.
What is the most awkward moment you’ve experienced while on the job?
At a ceremony there were glass vases on the floor on each side of the aisle. After the ceremony ended as the couple walked down, I was walking backwards photographing the bride and groom and accidentally knocked a vase down, spilling water everywhere! It was embarrassing, but thankfully no one noticed!
What’s the best thing you ever ate at a wedding?
Wedding cake :) It’s our treat after standing on our feet all day!
What is your favorite venue and why?
Oak Tree Manor, it has a beautiful oak tree for the ceremony and an indoor or outdoor option for the reception. They also have quaint vintage details throughout the venue.
Nikon or Canon?
Nikon. It’s what we started with, and have stuck with it ever since!
What is your dream location to shoot a wedding?
We would love to photograph an intimate wedding in the woods or mountains. We love nature and stunning landscapes. We don’t have many landscapes like this in Texas so we try to travel as often as we can and bring home the inspiration we get for our clients!
If you could shoot any celebrity wedding (past, present or future), who would be the lucky couple?
I don’t really keep up with celebrities (gasp!) so I don’t know who is engaged or recently married… but I did watch The Notebook. Ryan Gosling and Rachel Mcadams make one stunning couple.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned, and would pass along to other new wedding photographers just getting started?
Know your equipment well and be comfortable shooting in different kinds of lighting situations. This way you’ll be confident in yourself and prepared for anything!
