We had the good fortune of connecting with Wil Ramsey and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Wil, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
How to know when to keep going or to give up? Are you alive? Then keep going. You may have to change strategies, rethink your goals, or adjust your expectations. But don’t ever give up.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
We’re wedding photographers who want our couples to truly celebrate every little moment of their wedding. The whole day is filled with such importance and meaning. There’s something sacred about weddings and we don’t want them to become just a photoshoot. We’ve gotten where we are by looking around at what bothers us about the wedding industry, and doing something different. We think grooms (and their families) should be included just as much as brides, we think wedding details are overblown, we bright and airy or dark and moody are beautiful, but that your grandchildren will just want to see what you looked like.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Killen’s BBQ is the best bbq in the city. Ninfa’s on Navigation is a must for anyone coming to Houston. Tacos al Carbon and a frozen margarita. 8th Wonder Brewery is an awesome place to hang out. The museum district is great. The Museum of Natural Science is a personal favorite. If it was baseball season we’d have to go to Minute Maid for a game. Houston has a great Vietnamese food scene, so we’d get some pho or banh mi. That’s a lot of food and eating, so maybe a walk along Buffalo Bayou to let the food settle.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My wife, Paige, who is my business partner and best friend. She’s the reason I do everything I do and the reason I believe I can do anything I do.
