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! :)

JP & Lindsey, New Orleans Engagements.

Lindsey and JP met me at City Park the week we thought a hurricane might be coming for New Orleans. The day before a potential hurricane turned out to be some solid photoshoot weather and even provided a little wind effect I didn't hate. 

JP and Lindsey will be getting married in March and will have folks coming from all over to see New Orleans for the first time! I had a blast finally meeting these two. What a pair!

Congrats you guys. 

Reid & Camille....New Orleans French Quarter Wedding

You might remember Reid and Camille from earlier this year! We had a fun day of photos in the French Quarter and Cafe du Monde when we did their engagements. 

Round two was a blast. Reid & Camille's wedding was at Latrobe's on Royal in the French Quarter in early December. It was a rainy day but the rain didn't threat an incredible second line all through the French Quarter to end a spectacular celebration!

Congrats you two! Wishing you all the best in marriage and your careers in sunny California!

Featured! Southern Bride Magazine

I'm honored to say we've been featured in Southern Bride Magazine

You might remember we did a styled shoot a little while back in honor of the women at Umucyo Sewing Cooperative in Kigali, Rwanda. After seeing my blog post about our work with the ladies in Kigali, Stephanie Ringler of Roses and Lace, a wedding coordinator in Baton Rouge was inspired to do a styled shoot that reflected some of the style of the shoot we did for Umucyo. 

I'm honored to have been a part of it and thankful Southern Weddings featured us in their June print magazine! You can find it at any Barnes and Noble or Target and turn to page 100!:)

Also check out this blog post of all the images that inspired this styled shoot!
