Harry & Susan Phillips...Oxford, Mississippi Wedding

What a joy and privilege to photograph a wedding for someone I’ve known for years! Susan and her family are very dear to me and have welcomed me as their own for more than a decade so photographing such a big day for her, her family, and all their guests felt like such an honor and joy. On top of that, it was an incredible Oxford, Mississippi wedding full of fun in the square, a beautiful church, and quite the crowd to celebrate Harry and Susan. We had a blast shooting this wedding that had the best of Ole Miss, Oxford, and sparkler getaways!! 

Congrats you two! Here’s to many more years of fun with the people you love! 

JP & Lindsey....Degas House New Orleans Wedding

JP and Lindsey were married at the Edgar Degas House in Mid City New Orleans. 

 The Degas House couldn't be a more perfect place to have a spring wedding in our favorite city...we loved working with this venue and the stunning florist design of Margee Green. 

Add in an incredibly sweet and beautiful couple and that's a good mix for an excellent Saturday night in the Crescent City.  

JP and Lindsey, congratulations to you two! 

Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your wedding. It was an honor!

Harry and Susan

What a treat when I get to take photos of such cute couples. These two were so giggly throughout our shoot and really what could be better than making each other laugh for an hour? 

Harry and Susan will have a wedding next year, so we did these photos in New Orleans City Park (one of my fave locations) in January. Harry was deployed a week after these were taken. 

What a joy to be a part of this moment for them.

Wishing you two all the best in this year apart as you look forward to forever together! 

Thanks for stopping by!

John & Jennifer...New Orleans Christmas Wedding

John and Jennifer's wedding took place at the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans and Immaculate Conception Jesuit Church on December 8, 2017. 

The Roosevelt this time of year is unlike any other. Jennifer wanted to be sure to have some time taking photos under the "twinkling lights" and we did just that. It was a joy to be a part of such a festive occasion! From getting ready in amazing Roosevelt suites, to a ceremony in one of the most beautiful locations in New Orleans, to twinkle lights, to Bucktown Allstars, to friends on the dance floor to a second line down the escalator and back to twinkle lights...this was one for the books! 

Congratulations to John and Jennifer! May you get to experience twinkling lights in so many of your tomorrow's together! :)

Tanner & Stephanie Wedding...Baton Rouge Wedding Photography

You might remember Tanner and Stephanie's engagement session from earlier this year! You can view those photos here

John & Jennifer...Audubon Park New Orleans Engagements

I love it when the forecast looks grim only to surprise with the most glorious of days! 

John and Jennifer's engagement session was set for Audubon Park months in advance...and on a  day that the two could make it since they are long distance right now. John lives in DC while Jennifer is in Nola. The threat of rain is never fun for a steamy Louisiana day...especially when it hadn't stopped raining for weeks! 

But...the rain held off...literally until the last minute when we all got in our cars to leave and the bottom fell out. So thankful for that timing and for such a wonderful morning getting to know these two. 

Jennifer and John, I can't wait for the wedding day! You two are too cute. Thanks friends. 

Tanner & Stephanie - Baton Rouge Engagements

Tanner and Stephanie are getting married in July and thankfully we got to sneak in some engagements before the Louisiana heat began it's annual overnight set-in! 

We took these out at Tanner's family land in Slaughter, LA. If even for an afternoon, it's good for the soul to get out of the city and head out into the country. 

Congrats to Stephanie and Tanner! Can't wait for the wedding day:)

Mark & Lisa's New Years Wedding! -- Baton Rouge

Lisa is one of the first people I met in college. She lived right down the hall in our dorm and became a fast friend to everyone she met. Her joy, love for adventure, and heart for others makes her hard not to love! When she told me about her New Years Eve wedding, her hopes for her wedding day being more than just a day to celebrate her and her guy but also the people around them, and about her guy who sounded just as awesome as she is, my reply was a resounding:

I'M IN!

I've been telling people that Mark and Lisa's wedding was done the right way. If you're going to do New Years, this is what you should do. Complete with confetti, family bands, surprise performances, gold & glitz, a choir, midnight kisses, a limbo stick and even gluten free desserts! What is there not to love?

Congrats you two. It was an honor and a joy. May the rest of your life be as fun, full and beautiful as this night was!

Kyle & Amanda's Baton Rouge Wedding - Old State Capitol

I love the Old State Capitol as a wedding and event venue. 

You got your one-of-a-kind stairs, your beautiful architecture, your great location for out-of-towners, your history, and your all-in-one convenience. It's a winner for sure. 

I first met Kyle and Amanda at that amazing Halloween themed wedding I did a few years ago! We had a blast being a part of Kyle and Amanda's Baton Rouge wedding. It was beautiful! 

Congrats you two!

Tray & Emma..St. Francisville Wedding

 

I told someone the other day "man, I just love a Benton wedding!"

I've known Emma, her siblings, and her nieces and nephews for several years. I had the privilege of photographing Cary, Emma's sister, and Paul's wedding a couple of years ago. Some of the kiddos pictured here I got to babysit for several years right after college and the Benton family and their extended folks as well have continually been a huge encouragement in my pursuit to start and continue this business. I am thankful for the Bentons! 

Tray and Emma's wedding was a beautiful southern summer evening wedding in one of the most beautiful areas of Louisiana, the one and only St. Francisville. 

I'm honored to have been a part of it and wish you two so so many years of bliss! Congrats:)
