A summer country wedding at the secluded and idyllic Desert Plantation in Woodville, MS. Kelly and John shared an emotional first look before tying the knot under an ancient mossy oak on the plantation grounds. Bearing the rings were extra-special four-legged guests of honor - the couple's two sweet puppies.

I have to admit, I’m kind of sad that I don’t get to take pictures of Elizabeth in her gorgeous ball gown all the time! This session was so much fun and we got so creative towards the end…it was photographer heaven! It was almost as much fun as watching her twirl and dance the […]

Elizabeth | Gatehouse Baton Rouge Bridal Session

One of the things Elizabeth stressed to me in preparing for her wedding was that people were very important to her and Jeff. And isn’t that the reason we have weddings? To celebrate with our people – our new spouse, our family, friends and relatives, all gathered under one roof. It’s pretty amazing to think […]

Elizabeth & Jeff | Dunham Chapel Baton Rouge Wedding

When I was writing Lauren and Kyle’s wedding post earlier this week, I starting thinking about how I’ve been lucky enough to capture many memories for Lauren over the years. If you dig way back into my files, there’s homecoming photos circa 2011-ish, her engagement session last year, college graduation earlier this year, then bridals, […]

Lauren | Greenwood Plantation Bridal Session

The forecast all last week leading up to Lauren & Kyle’s big day was not ideal. Like, 100%-chance-of-rain-and-flash-flooding not ideal. I was so bummed for them! We were only going to have a small window of time for outdoor portraits after the ceremony (which is a bonus of getting married in the summer, when the […]

Lauren & Kyle | Classic Navy Blue Wedding in New Roads, LA

Kali is my second bride this year that is a former high school classmate! Well, technically we are a year apart but I knew her a little better than even some of my actual classmates because of softball! It’s so exciting to catch up after all these years (which really hasn’t felt like that long […]

Kali & Chris | Hilltop Arboretum Engagement Session

1. Have a good “getting-ready” space What is a good getting ready space? It doesn’t have to be fancy! It just needs two things: a clutter-free corner and a WINDOW! In fact, the more windows the better. If there is a lot of good window light, I will turn off all the artificial light in […]

How To Get Magazine Worthy Wedding Photos

Y’all, I’m slacking! I didn’t blog last week but it’s only because I’ve been an editing machine! So now I have lots to catch up on and I had to start off with this STUNNING girl’s senior session! We took Kamryn’s photos at the Botanic Gardens…which is probably the most common spot for portraits in […]

Kamryn | LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens Senior Session

I took Lauren’s college senior photos last week, and it make me realize I never blogged her and Kyle’s engagement session from last summer!! Plus with all this yucky rainy weather today I think we can use a little sunshine! Lauren gets to be behind my camera again in a couple of weeks when we […]

Lauren & Kyle | Afton Villa St. Francisville Engagement Session

Danielle and Ryan tied the knot at Ryan’s mom’s home last Saturday, and marked the end of my “early spring” wedding season and the beginning of all the senior sessions! A few of my favorite things about this wedding: it was only 10 minutes from my house (so nice!) and they served crawfish at their […]
