Married: July 10, 2021

I’m loving all of these high school sweetheart couples! Maggie & Parker have been together for 7 years and finally tied the knot!!  What an exciting day it was!  This group was such a blast.  I think I smiled & giggled the entire day.  Gosh… I love what I do!  

Maggie got ready at a long-time friends home.  It was the perfect location for getting ready.  Music was playing & lots of laughter filled the home.  These girls were so much fun! Liz… you need to rent your house out for bridal prep in the future! 😉  

Maggie & Parker were married at St. Francis de Sales Cathedral.  As the music began and the doors opened, Maggie couldn’t hold back her emotions.  It was so heartfelt and she was so excited to marry her high school sweetheart.  I just loved the ambiance of a candlelight ceremony. I also love Father Andre ceremonies.  He always does such a great job at getting to know the couple.  It was such a beautiful ceremony.  

The reception followed to the Ellendale Country Club.  I’ve been working with Souled Out a lot recently and it’s been so much fun.  As always, they were ready to get the party started.  The outdoor reception was filled with lots of dancing, singing along with the band and just good ol’ fun!

Maggie & Parker, your day was such a fun celebration!  We loved being surrounded by your friends and family.  Everyone was so very kind and fun!  What a beautiful new chapter you have started!  We’re so happy for you! Congratulations again!  We hope you enjoy some of our favorites from your day!

Married: June 19, 2021 

This is a day so many people have been waiting for!!  These high school sweethearts have been together for 10 years!!!  They started dating their freshman year of high school and have been together ever since!  I just absolutely love stories like this.  

Amber got ready at the new Vrbo, Rock-n-Dock, on the Intracoastal.  I was so excited to finally photograph here.  I was immediately greeted with familiar faces and Amber’s bridesmaids were willing to help in anyway.  Through the whole wedding process, Amber has been such an easy-going bride.  She was the same way on the wedding day.  So calm and ready to marry her high school sweetheart.   

Amber & Kyle were married at St. Francis de Sales Cathedral.  Father Cody was so excited to see most of Bourg residents at the wedding.  He did a wonderful job as always.  When Father Cody announced, “Mr. & Mrs. Barker”, the congregation roared! All of their guest was so excited to see these two become husband and wife.   

The reception followed to the Event Center.  Souled Out, was ready to get the party started.  The dance floor was not empty the entire night.  We had such a blast!  What a great group of friends and family this couple has.  They truly celebrated Amber & Kyle!  

Amber & Kyle, I can’t thank you enough for inviting me into your family and choosing me to document your wedding.  You two are an amazing couple and I know you will have a wonderful marriage.  Here are a few of our favorites from your amazing day!   

Congratulations again!

A day so many have been waiting for!!  These two have been together for 14 years and they finally tied the knot! WhooHoo!!!  It was an amazing evening celebrated by their closest friends and family.  

Tana & Colby were married at Dominique’s Wine Boutique & Bistro in downtown Houma.  Kenny Hamner did a wonderful job officiating the ceremony.  He had everyone laughing at the end with a Cajun blessing.  The reception followed inside for dancing, good food and drinks.  It was a beautiful South Louisiana summer evening.   

Tana & Colby, I am so very happy for both of you.  I know this was a long day coming and I’m so thankful that you picked me to document this important day.  

Here are a few of my favorites from your amazing afternoon!  Congratulations again!

Brittany + Nick

Mr. & Mrs. Wells

First Baptist Church of Houma | Mardi Gras Hall

Married: May 28, 2021

I can’t say enough good things about Brittany & Nick!! What a precious couple I’ve been blessed to work with!!!  They both have handled the last year with such class & ease.  They rolled through every obstacle of picking a new date, finding a new reception venue and keeping all of their vendors.  I’ve gotten to really know this couple and I consider them not only clients but friends.  They have truly blessed me with their kindness and thoughtfulness throughout the last year of working together.  

Brittany & Nick were married at First Baptist Church of Houma.  Brother Steve did an amazing job as always.  He did tell Nick he would hold the marriage license for two weeks if Brittany starts acting up.  LOL!  It was funny but we all know this couple is solid and Nick will not be trading in Brittany.  Their love for each other is so evident.

The reception then followed to Mardi Gras Hall in downtown Houma.  DJ, Quinn Landry, was ready to get the party started.  The night was filled with laughter, visiting and dancing.  They ended their reception with a blessing.  

Just like the lyrics say, I pray the same thing…

May His favor be upon you

And a thousand generations

And your family and your children

And their children, and their children

Brittany & Nick, thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to document your day.  You both have blessed me, and I can never thank you enough for giving me the privilege of getting to know you.  I couldn’t think of a better couple to photograph my 300th wedding.  

Here are a few of my favorites from your beautiful day!  Congratulations again!

Mr. & Mrs. Sawyer

Honeymoon Portraits

Walt Disney World – Magic Kingdom

Dreams really do come true!!  I have always wanted to photograph in Disney World!!  While photographing Ahlanna’s bridals back in February, I asked her where they were going on their honeymoon.  She mentioned Disney World but wouldn’t be going until May since she is in grad school.  I just so happen to be going the same week as them for a bachelorette trip!!  What?!?! 

I have been anxiously waiting for the week to arrive.  Ahlanna & Blake kept their outfits top secret.  When we met at our meeting spot, I was like a little kid and probably got way too excited.  We seriously had the best time.  I couldn’t think of a better couple to photograph in Disney.  Thank you… thank you… thank you… for allowing me to take portraits of you two on your honeymoon.  This was an amazing experience.  I will never forget this day!  I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from our day together.
