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 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 […]

Danielle & Ryan | Blush and Navy Spring Wedding

All the dreary rain has me missing the beautiful weather we had last week! We took these photos last Monday – another day that it was supposed to rain, but look how gorgeous it turned out!! Today, not so much!! I’m so glad we didn’t have to reschedule and I got to meet and hang […]

Casie & Brian | Botanic Gardens Engagement Session

When Kathryn reached out to me almost two (!) years ago to photograph her wedding, I was so excited!! Kathryn and I went to high school together a loooong time ago (let’s just say our ten year reunion has already happened) and I remembered that she always had a smile on her face, with the […]

Kathryn & Brendan | Spring Nottoway Plantation Wedding

I’m sitting on my couch typing this at 7:45am, with one eye on the baby monitor because the birthday girl is still fast asleep, and I’m filled with so much gratitude. I’m grateful that after an extremely hard year where we lost both of Camille’s grandfathers and our two first pregnancies, we were blessed with […]

We have a 1 year old!!

Rosedown can be a tricky place for photo sessions! It’s a GORGEOUS property, but they close early-ish and are very strict on that, and there’s TONS of shade so it gets dark in some places very quickly in the evenings! BUT sometimes the stars (clouds) align and you get a perfectly overcast-but-still-glowy afternoon, and magic […]

Mackenzie | Rosedown Plantation Bridal Session

The first thing Mallory admitted to me when we got to the Botanic Gardens was “We are so awkward! Please tell us if we look awkward!” I don’t know about y’all, but I can’t find a single awkward photo in the bunch! These two make such a beautiful couple inside and out and I had […]

Ragen & Lucas | Mount Hope Plantation Baton Rouge Wedding

I waited a LONG time for Mackenzie and John to tie the knot, and this wedding did not disappoint! Mackenzie reached out and booked me back in August of 2017!

Mackenzie & John | St. Mary of False River New Roads Wedding

I say it all the time but I’ll say it again…we are so lucky to live in the South where bridals are a “thing”! Spending this time with my brides is one of my favorite parts of the wedding process (no offense guys!) But I also know how nerve-wracking it can be to be in […]
