I’m Renee, a South Louisiana wedding photographer striving to create blissful experiences and timeless images. As a former CPA, I live for organization, but my secret power is handling chaos with grace on wedding days. From rounding up rowdy wedding parties to bustling dresses, I’ve got your back - without missing a shot.

Best of 2019 | Portraits

We’re almost a whole month into 2020, but I wanted to do something different for the first time and share some of my favorite images from last year!! Let me tell you, compiling this was harder than I thought it would be! I spent the better part of the day yesterday going through last year’s galleries, and I decided it needed to be broken up into two posts. This one will be dedicated to portrait sessions!! The bulk of these are engagement and bridal photos, but there are a handful of seniors and some families from my mini sessions.

Going through these, I realized just how much I shoot at some of the same locations – looking at you AgCenter Botanic Gardens ????. I tend to go to the same spots at those places over and over where I know the good light is, and I guess in my head I felt like those sessions were getting a little redundant. But the truth is, even the same place can look SO different on different days! (Crazy the way light works!) And I gotta say, I’m proud of myself for branching out and trying unique spots at each session! You really can’t even tell that a lot of these are at the same venue. It also helps that the place is 400 acres lol!

There’s a couple of bridal sessions that I can’t quite share yet, so I’ll have to remember those for 2020!! I’ll be sharing my favorite 2019 WEDDING images in another post later this week!!

This flower wall! ????
Lauren’s bridals, college graduation photos, and wedding were all in 2019!

Fountainebleu is one of my favorites!!! So unique and so Louisiana!
The cutest pup Nellie! Furbabies are always welcome at sessions!
