Mr. & Mrs. Roy: Lafayette, LA.

I feel so blessed to have been able to work with Kathryn & Marty throughout their wedding journey! These two tied the knot underneath a few beautiful oak trees on one of the last (and most beautiful) days in September. I found myself so relaxed during the entire day because everyone around me was so full of joy, so friendly, and completely stress-free. Their ceremony was SO full of laughter, and a few loving tears from family members.

If you missed Kat & Marty’s engagements, feel free to check them out here!

And how about that stunning backdrop by Flowers by Rodney?

Whitley & Kris : Lafayette Engagements

Whitley & Kris are tying the knot on 12-13-14.

Although I won’t be able to photograph their wedding due to being out of town, I’m so excited to be able to shoot their engagements and Whitleys bridals!

Kris planned out a whole day to propose to Whitley. It was one big scavenger hunt which ended at Rip Van Winkle when he finally proposed!

These two have such a cute love. A real cute love, y’all. I’m so sad I won’t be able to document their wedding day!

Whitley - I Love all of these pictures! Sarah, you did such a great job & were so wonderful to work with! I am on cloud 9 right now! :-)

Angel & Justin : Lafayette Engagements

These two have a gallery full of so much love and even more laughter. They were beyond a blast to spend the afternoon with! Also, Angel’s daughter may be one of the funniest little girls I’ve ever got to photograph. She totally called the shots telling them “how about you two kiss, and I’ll smile!” and “I want to take this one by myself!”

I really really really cannot wait until their New Years Eve intimate backyard wedding!!

2015 Senior REPS

Oh my goodness. These girls made my weekend this past Sunday.

When I look back on my senior pictures I think to myself ‘what is this?’. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my photos and I still do! But holy smokes, I looked so awkward posed in these stiff, boring, totally-not-me poses (unless you count the one with my dog, that one is so totally me). Not to mention the flawless skin airbrushing. Oh, the airbrushing. Anyways! One of my main goals for every senior session is to really pull out the girls personality. Let them open up and just let loooose! I want to get that raw, gritty, natural laugh. The one that really comes from the gut. When your eyes squint so hard you really don’t know what’s going on on the other side of your eyelids. Lololol,lmao,loll. That kinda laugh.

These 8 girls are my 2015 Senior Reps. They’re all friends and they’re all super awesome. I told them “hey look, I don’t want y’all to be all serious tonight. You’ve got your full senior session to get those classic head shots, etc. Tonight – we’re cutting up.

Y’all – senior year is already stressful enough. These girls have SO much on their plate, so I was thrilled to take a Sunday afternoon to let them unwind and refresh. I only spent around 5-10 minutes with each girl and look what they gave me!

Valorie & Jacob : #BeOurGuest

Valorie & Jacob decided to have a Beauty & the Beast themed wedding full of red roses, tea pots and candle sticks! To top it off they had the most beautiful cake I’ve ever seen, made by the mother of the bride! Jacob had multiple letters delivered to Valorie while she was getting ready and a final letter on the way to the ceremony. And each time, she had to fight back her tears. Happy tears, of course. But happy tears or not, they can still ruin a girls mascara :)

These two come alive when they’re with each other. Seriously, just wait until you see them dance. Foreheads pressed together, smiling ear to ear.

When Valorie contacted me, she straight up told me “the church really isn’t that pretty, it’s pretty much like a warehouse.” But let me tell you – that didn’t effect their day at all. These two brought the ‘warehouse’ alive. Their first look was immediately followed by another first look with the father of the bride. I teared up. Twice. It was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

Looking back on their day I really can’t think of a time when Valorie & Jacob weren’t completely shinning with happiness. And at the end of the day, that’s what really matters.

P.S. These two already have the cutest little girl ever, and are now expecting their second!!
