Personal Work : DIY Backdrop

A couple weeks ago I really got the urge to do something different than what I’ve been shooting. I quickly started trying to plan another ‘styled shoot’ when I came across a great DIY backdrop on Instagram. It didn’t quite fit in with my theme for the shoot I was already planning but I figured I’d throw it in anyways since I’d already have three stunning girls there to model! I’m glad I did because it gave me a kick of excitement for my seniors this year!

I can’t wait to get my film back from the full styled shoot – but for now – I’m loving the outcome of this fun, youthful backdrop!

Jessie - Wow! Beautiful…what kind of lighting did you use?

Sarah - Jessie – this was all with natural light outside!

Mr. & Mrs. Piro

I was SO excited to shoot my first wedding at Rip Van Winkle Gardens for Kelsey & Josh. Thheeennn I saw the forecast for that day and begun to worry. I met them at RVW and was automatically smitten by Kelseys amazing gown! I still cannot get enough of the detailed beading on top combined with a simple bottom! Despite the forecast the weather ended up being absolutely perfect (typical Louisiana). However, there was one hiccup to the day. Kelsey’s sister, and maid of honor, had gone into labor and unfortunately had to miss the wedding. At least she got her hair and make up done first, right?! But really – Kelsey and her family handled it all so graciously. During the reception they got word that the baby was born and it was such a beautiful moment! ( I admit, I shed a tear… or two).

I feel so blessed to have worked with Kelsey & Josh. They are honestly such genuine people and I’m so so happy for them!

P.S. I’ve NEVER shot (or even attended) a reception with this much dancing! I could barely get on the dance floor!

Leah & George : Lafayette Engagements

Leah & George are old friends of mine from college and I couldn’t have been more thrilled when they asked me to photograph them. These two have been together since we met and they truly are two of the nicest people around. We started off the day downtown Lafayette just walking around finding new places, made a pit stop in Carpe Diem! Gelato (and had a few sample tastes – delicious), and ended the evening at The Horse Farm, with their adorable puppy (yes, he’s still pretty much a puppy)!

P.S. I’ve been shooting more and more film lately and using only those images for my blog posts. This post only has 5 digital images in it, because I loved them so much I just had to throw those in too :). I’ve fallen in love with the process of shooting film, and even more with the finished results!

What do I even say about these? Peyton made an absolutely stunning bride. Not only is she drop dead gorgeous but she has been SUCH a pleasure to work with since day one. I’ve had so much fun photographing Peyton. Not only because she’s obviously photogenic but because we’ve became friends through the process and she’s honestly just such a joy to be around.

Peyton was married last night to her best friend, Josh, who is just as fun as she is! I cannot wait to see where life will take these two and I hope to be able to photograph them both again!


Tammy Jordan - Peyton you are beautiful.

Hollister - Such beautiful photos! Peyton is my niece and you really captured her beauty and spirit!

Dina Guillot - Beautiful youn woman and that photograher did a wonderful job I think I know that young lady
