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!


Mrs. Bailey : Jungle Garden Bridals

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

Nikki & Jesse : Jungle Garden Engagements

Nikki & Jesse opted to have their engagement session at Avery Island, which is always a gorgeous location no matter what time of year. They also brought their chocolate lab, Abby,(pets=extra brownie points in my book) who didn’t leave their side the whole time!

I loved the personal touch Nikki included by bringing wooden cut outs of their hometown states as well as a heart for Abby!

Here’s a quick tale on the proposal:)
It was the day before my birthday and we were meeting at my parents house in Alexandria to go to dinner with both our parents. Well, they had each bought me gifts for my birthday. After opening presents from my parents and his, Jessie brought in a large box. It was super heavy! So I went to open it, and it was a wine cooler! I was soooo excited, everyone knows how much I love my wine :). Inside the refrigerator was a big bow. I opened the door to look at the bow and it was attached to a box. Jesse then got down on one knee and asked in front of both of our parents, it was perfect!


Allison & Jy : Victorian Wedding

When I was emailing back and forth with Allison a couple weeks before the wedding about her timeline for the day, this was how she ended her email “ I really don’t want to give you too many instructions because I trust your creative eye!:)“! She has been the most relaxed, easy going bride and I cannot express how amazing it’s been to work with her. There was so much joy during their wedding day. Everyone was so so happy for Allison & Jy and it really shows in their photos. I’ll always tell my brides that the BEST way to get the most out of your photographs is to just be HAPPY (annnd some awesome natural light never hurt anyone), and that’s what their day was made out of – Happiness. (annnddd a ton of that beautiful light!)

And I had to include a close up of the screen while Allison &  her father shared a dance. They had played a video of photos and then this was shown at the end. It’s a letter that Allison gave to her dad many years ago, and was saved until her wedding day. When this letter came on the screen, Butterfly Kisses started to play:)
