Jennifer + Paul | Laurel Valley Village Plantation Engagement Session

 

I met Jennifer & Paul for the first time at their engagement session and I instantly fell in love with them.  I love their passion for fitness & their love for converse sneakers.  They even brought their cute little pup to join in for a few shots.

 

Laurel Valley was the perfect location for these two love birds.  You would never know that it stormed right before this session.  They were such troopers!

 

I hope you enjoy a few of many favorites from this session!  I cannot wait for their spring wedding next year!

Kera + Travell

Mr. & Mrs. Keller

Bell Baptist Church | Royal Villa

Married:  July 7, 2017

 

Happy Wednesday everyone!   Kera & Travell are back from their cruise and I’ve been dying to share just a few of our favorite photos!

 

I have to say that this couple is seriously one of the sweetest.  They even sent me a note on Mother’s Day! How sweet is that!  From the first day I met Kera & Travell (and every day after that) they reminded me why I love my job so much.  It’s easy to work with a couple who are joyful and grateful and trusting; who smile easily; who love life; who love each other; and no matter how stressful the wedding process gets, who never forget what really matters most. They have a heart of gold.

 

I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek! There’s a lot more to come!

Hillary + Garett

Mr. & Mrs. Charpentier

St. Francis De Sales Cathedral | Grand Bayou Noir

Married:  June 23, 2017

 

Happy Thursday!   Hillary & Garett are back from their Alaskan honeymoon and I’ve been dying to share just a few of our favorite photos!

 

Oh, where do we even begin with these two? From the minute I met Hillary, I knew she was going to be so fun to work with. I loved all the Texas traditions she was including in her South Louisiana wedding. From cowboy boots to what a “house party” is, I knew it was going to be great.

 

So many special moments took place during Hillary & Garett’s big day but one that stands out the most is when Garett surprised Hillary with a song he wrote just for her.

 

Hillary & Garett, thank you so much for bringing us out to your beautiful wedding. You two are just so sweet together.

 

Enjoy this little sneak peek! There’s a lot more to come!

Lauren + Alex

Mr. & Mrs. Hymel

St. Joseph Co-Cathedral | Envie

Married:  April 28, 2017

 

Happy Friday everyone! I instantly fell in love with Lauren when I first met her. Lauren your laughter is so infectious and joy just radiates out of your pores. I have been counting down the days until your wedding ever since we met. I still remember our first meeting on the Eve of Christmas Eve. We chatted for hours. She was marrying her high school sweetheart just like me and I loved everything about Lauren & Alex’s love story.

 

 

We couldn’t stop smiling all day long, and we felt so welcomed by Lauren & Alex’s friends and family. We were in photographer heaven from the second we arrived until the second we left. There were so many special moments during their day. One of my favorites is when Lauren’s Dad surprised her with a song. It was so very special and everyone was just in awe. It will be something I will never forget. It was such an honor to capture your day, and we are so excited for you to see just a few of our favorite photos. We hope you love them as much as we do!
