Austin + Beth

Mr. & Mrs. Percle

Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church | Cypress Columns

Married: October 18, 2019

 

When I think about someone that is exuberant, I will always think of Beth.  She was so full of joy and so happy to be marrying her high school sweetheart.  From the first moment I stepped foot at her aunt’s house to the last step of the sparkler exit, she was beaming with joy the entire night.

 

If you have never been to one of Father Mark’s ceremonies, you are missing out.  He truly gets to know the couple and incorporates it into the entire ceremony.  It really was a beautiful ceremony and I caught myself wiping away tears from time to time.  I will never forget the moment Father Mark pronounced Austin & Beth husband and wife.  They ran down the aisle and shouted… “We are married”!!

 

I know the two of them will have a wonderful marriage. From the heartfelt letters they wrote to each other to the joy that radiated from their every being, it was such a beautiful night.  I am so lucky to be the one to capture this union.  I can never thank them enough!

 

Misty & I hope you two had a wonderful time in Sonoma, CA on your honeymoon.  I cannot wait to see the pictures!  Here are a few of our favorites from the night.  Thank you so much for allowing us to be the ones to capture your day!

Jacque + Rob

St. Henry’s Catholic Church & Rosy’s Jazz Hall | New Orleans, LA

Married: September 28, 2019

 

I’ve been dreaming of a wedding like this for a while now and cannot think of a more perfect couple. Jacque & I worked together on the perfect schedule and boy… did it pay off!  Every minute was scheduled and not one hiccup came our way.

 

I was greeted with love the minute I walked in.  Everyone was so excited to for this precious couple!  After the prep was complete, Jacque & Rob were so excited to do a first look. The hotel offered to let us use a banquet room for privacy.  It truly was a precious moment to witness their excitement to see each other.  As we headed into the French Quarter for portraits, locals and tourists congratulated them everywhere we went.  We even had a sweet local offer for us to use her courtyard. Everywhere we went we were greeted with such love.  That is what I love so much about New Orleans.

 

St. Henry’s is one of my favorite churches in New Orleans.  It’s just the perfect church for a New Orleans wedding.  Jacque & Rob’s ceremony was so meaningful.  From the sweet homily from the deacon to the cute giggles they gave each other, it was so personal. After a few formal portraits at the church, we headed to Audubon Park for some fun portraits.  The sun was setting, and it was the perfect backdrop for the New Orleans look that Jacque & Rob love so much. Then off to Rosy’s Jazz Hall we went to celebrate the night away.  Everyone knows I LOVE… LOVE… LOVE Rosy’s!  I even joke with Darlene & Steve that one of my kids are getting married there one day! It was the perfect location for all the out of towners!  The ambience, the great food & brass band were all a hit!  It was a magical evening and I didn’t want it to end.

 

Jacque & Rob, Congratulations from the bottom of our heart’s!!  Misty and I couldn’t be more excited for you two!!  Thank you so much for putting your trust in us.  We hope you enjoy some of our favorites from your perfect wedding day!

Kristen + Shane

Mr. & Mrs. Marie

First Assembly of God & Houma Municipal Auditorium | Houma, LA

Married: September 14, 2019

 

I first met Kristen when she was a teenager.  She was my best friends’ babysitter for years.  She would even babysit for me from time to time.  She would mention, I hope you get to photograph my wedding one day.  Well the day finally came, and I was so blessed to be the one to photograph this precious union.  Kristen & Shane have such a sweet spirit.  We honestly had the best time with both of them.  It was a true South Louisiana wedding, packed with lots of family & friends to celebrate.  Just like it should be!

 

We hope you guys had a great time in Destin, FL on your honeymoon.  Here are few of our favorites from the night.  We hope you enjoy!

 

Bayou’s Best of the Best

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from the Houma Courier informing me that I made the Top 5 of Bayou’s Best of the Best 2019.

 

As I shared the news with my family, my kids were so very excited.  It’s like I was nominated for a Grammy in the Sanderson household.   They have shared it with their friends and our family and it has been so precious to see.  Thank you all who have nominated me.  In my children’s eyes, I have won and that is all that matters.

 

If you would like to cast your vote my way for favorite photographer, I would love your vote.  Here is the link:
