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.

Kelly and Chance are so sweet and down-to-earth, y’all, and I’m so excited to have them as part of my 2020 wedding couples! Kelly called me recently to discuss her plans for the wedding, and I felt so honored! Being trusted with not only documenting but being a part of planning someone’s wedding day is […]

Kelly & Chance | Arsenal Park Engagement Session

On their wedding day, Kali and Chris were living their vows before the ceremony even started. “In sickness and health” never rang truer as Chris battled a rough stomach virus the entire day! We had to make a few adjustments to the schedule, move some portraits inside because of the heat, but otherwise you’d never […]

Kali & Chris | Mint and Pink Summer Wedding in French Settlement, LA

When planning Kali’s bridal session, she knew she wanted somewhere indoors because let’s face it…summer time in Louisiana is no joke! Baton Rouge doesn’t have a TON of indoor options, but Capitol Park Museum is a great one… and a photographer’s dream with all the windows and clean, neutral backdrops! It has a very modern […]

Kali | Capitol Park Museum Bridal Session

Kaylyn and Garrett have such a fun story! Their grandparents have been neighbors for the longest time, but these two only met two years ago! Needless to say both their families are so excited for this wedding! These two lucked out weather wise for their shoot…it was the coolest, least humid day we had in […]

Kaylyn & Garrett | LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens Engagement Session

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 […]
