Elizabeth (or Liz) Slack is the owner and founder of Pure Plush Photo & Video. When she’s not sharing her love of photography or Astros Baseball, she’s likely playing with her darling dachshund, Olive, researching a new recipe to try or enjoying a cup of coffee. Besides puppies and coffee, you may have noticed Liz is a talented storyteller through images. While in college, she fell head over heels in love with the camera and the dark room. So in love with the creative process of photography, she changed majors to pursue something she truly loved to do, sowing the first seeds of what would become her dream business. Photography is what Liz does full time, and after graduating from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, with a Bachelors in Photography and a Minor in Visual Art, she began building this business.
After finding her passion in photography, Liz called Las Vegas home for over ten years, carving out a well-versed portfolio of portraiture, lifestyle, event, wedding and food photography… but her home state of Texas continued to call her back. Nothing makes Liz happier than to be in the land of queso and BBQ, but as this is where she grew up, her heart never really left the Lone Star State. Though her home base is in the Houston area, she is available throughout Texas and is willing to travel to domestic and/or international destinations. Her passport is always ready.
Now, with over a decade in the industry, Liz offers a complete menu of photography services– weddings, portraits, and events. She is well versed in film as well as digital, with film being a true passion, a medium that can often be overlooked in today’s market. Her skillset is ideal for events large and small and she is always willing to lend a hand with anything her clients need.
"As far as my photography style, I am an enthusiast for using natural light whenever possible, but I am always prepared for whatever lighting situation I may encounter at every event, and for every project. I am focused on capturing the emotion and the real story through photojournalism. On wedding days I tend to look like I’m going to battle, wearing my utility belt equipped with two cameras, and a bag full tools to help brides on their wedding day (like glue for those false lashes). I enjoy shooting more hybrid these days (film+digital) so one of those two cameras is probably loaded with film, an art which I enjoy being able to bring to the table for all my clients. While the calendar fills up fast, I know how important it is to connect with clients and discuss how I can contribute to your perfect day, and I'm here to answer all your questions."
