Carolyn + Michael | Wedding

Carolyn and Michael’s beautiful wedding took place at the Botanical Gardens in New Orleans. I was so in my element for their wedding…. everything was picture perfect. The lighting… the details… the bride and groom – everything. I adore outdoor weddings so much – especially outdoor weddings at sunset. ::sigh:: One thing that was super important to Carolyn and Michael were pictures of them together after the ceremony. I love when the bride and groom will take extra time for photos… even if it means missing 30 minutes of their reception! Allowing that kind of time for photos… you won’t regret it. I promise… and I know Carolyn and Michael would agree. Enjoy my favorites from their special day.

Carolyn and Michael – it was SUCH a pleasure capturing every beautiful moment the two of you created that day. It was perfect in every way and I believe the photographs show that. May you both be blessed and have a lifetime of beautiful years together. Thank you for trusting me to document your love that day. xoxo!

Happy Friday!

Meghan + Blake | Engaged

I remember being somewhat overwhelmed with the amount of brides that were coming through the door that day at the bridal show… everything was fast paced and kinda… well, a blur when I think back. After the show was over, and I took down my display booth, I remember wondering which brides I’d hear from again. Although I met SO many sweet brides – to – be that day, there was one that really stood out to me… Meghan. She had the sweetest most genuine way about her and to be honest… I hoped she would be one of my brides from the moment I met her! Meghan got in touch with me a few days after the bridal show and booked her May 2011 wedding with me….!!! (Yes, I did do my happy dance) I recently shot their engagement session where I finally met her finance Blake. Of course he was just as sweet as Meghan. It was a perfect day to capture some priceless memories! Enjoy some of my favorites from their E-Session!

Meghan & Blake, I can’t say enough how excited I am to be capturing this special time in your lives… it’s been the BEST getting to know you both and I anticipate everything else to come! Thank you both for being you. πŸ™‚ xo!

Awesome pictures! So clean and so beautiful!

Jenn | Bridal

When Jenn got in touch with me about photographing her wedding, the very thing I hate the most happened… I was already booked. She decided she wanted me to still do her Bridal Session and I’m so, SO glad I had the honor. I love nothing more when a bride shows up to a session and knows who she is as a bride when it comes to the style of her shoot and the way she desires it to look. She blew me away from the very first shot I took… I think you’ll agree.

Jenn, your beauty is truly exquisite and I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to capture this moment in time. Congrats to you and your sweet husband!! xo!

P.S. Ummm… to have skin like hers… yea, I know.

Alice + Michael | Wedding

I’m overly excited to be able to share another one of my beautiful weddings!! Blogging weddings is most defiantly my favorite thing to blog, but I’ve been really slacking lately in that area… I have a good number of weddings to catch up on to share… so lets start with Alice and Michael’s! Their wedding took place in New Orleans at the Board of Trade Plaza back in April! Alice and Michael, capturing your special day was such a joy… Alice, you were a stunning bride!! Many, MANY years of joy and happiness to you both! xoxo!

Happy weekend to you all!
