The Gatehouse Wedding Photographer Baton Rouge 0093

I love photographing weddings at The Gatehouse in Baton Rouge. Like, always. They have the best clients who find them, and I think that says a lot about a business! They just attract great people. And I’m always happy to photograph those people, as they start the rest of their lives with the vows pronounced here! […]

There just aren’t enough words in the English language to express how much I loved every single second of this New Orleans wedding at The Crossing. I talk a lot about how important it is to me, to work with “my people.” When you’re getting married and choosing a wedding photographer, it is essential that […]

Baton Rouge Birth Photographer Womans Hospital Bryson 0001

Childbirth photography, birth photography, birth stories…whatever you call it, it’s magical. I’m never more humbled or in awe of human life than in these moments. Being a birth photographer is a genuine privilege, for me – for so many reasons. Being present at the moment a child enters the world–a brand-new, fresh little soul–never gets […]

Baton Rouge Maternity Photographer Rosedown 0010

This maternity photography session just outside of Baton Rouge, at Rosedown, was one of my favorites to date! This is about how it went down when Erica asked me to photograph a maternity session for her: Her: “Hey, how do you feel about dogs?” Me: “Um, is that a trick question?” Her: “Would you be […]

Proposal Photographer Baton Rouge Windrush Gardens 0010

This proposal photography session in Baton Rouge is one for the books, y’all! When Harrison called me to ask me to photograph his proposal to his long-time love, I was all over it. And that was BEFORE he told me that they were considering bringing their dog along! (Spoiler alert: if it involves dogs, I am […]

Baton Rouge Wedding Photographer Ascension 50

This intimate Baton Rouge area wedding is, without a doubt, one of my all-time favorites. I’m such a lucky girl in that I get to work with GREAT people on the whole – but this day in particular made my heart sing. Lindsey and Beau live in New York and are–wait for it–theater people! How […]

This Baton Rouge backyard wedding was kinda all kinds of amazing, y’all. This is what weddings are all about – the people, the emotion, and the moments. The venue, and the decor, and everything else are the things that are happening around your wedding. I love backyard weddings because they’re always intimate affairs, and there’s […]

Being a New Orleans wedding photographer comes with a lot of perks. One of those is being able to photograph weddings at Latrobe’s on Royal! It’s one of my very favorite venues in NOLA. AND, when I have a spectacular couple like these two…well, I’m a lucky girl to have the job that I do. […]

New Orleans Wedding Photographer Pavilion of Two Sisters 57

I loved this New Orleans Pavilion of the Two Sisters wedding so hard! With a ceremony at Transfiguration Church, and an amazing reception at Pavilion of the Two Sisters, I was a happy (albeit tired) girl on this one!   If you know me, and what I’m most passionate about in my work, you know that […]

As a wedding photographer in Gonzales, I’m lucky to be able to photograph some of the best couples in the parish. AND at some of the best venues! I’m always thrilled to photograph at Elegant Affairs – and even more-so when I get to photograph wonderful couples like April and William. Family means so much […]
