Hi! I’m Elizabeth (or Liz), and I’m the owner of Pure Plush Photo & Video. If I’m not talking about photography, I’m talking about my dachshund pup Olive or drinking coffee. Besides puppies and coffee, you might have guessed I also love taking photos while being a storyteller through pictures. While in college, I fell head over heels in love with the camera and the dark room. So in love with shooting, I ended up changing my major to something I loved to do and never grew tired of. Photography is what I do full time, and I graduated from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, with a Bachelors in Photography and a Minor in Visual Art
I lived in Las Vegas for over ten years, but replanted myself back to my home state of Texas. Nothing makes me happier than to be back in the land of queso and BBQ, but also where I grew up and where my heart never left. Though my base is in the Houston area, I am available throughout Texas and for domestic or international destinations. My passport is always ready!
As far as my photography style, I am an enthusiast for using natural light whenever possible, but I am always prepared for whatever tricky lighting situation I encounter. I am always looking to capture emotion and the story through photojournalism. On wedding days I always look like I’m going to war wearing my utility belt equipped with two cameras and a bag full tools to save brides on their wedding day (like glue for those pesky fake lashes.) I am also shooting more hybrid these days (film+digital) so one of those two cameras is probably loaded with film.
Feel free to contact me about your wedding day! My dates fill up fast and I’d love to chat more.
