Baton Rouge Wedding Photographer Windrush Gardens 8

Windrush Gardens in Baton Rouge is one of my very favorite locations for photographs. I got so lucky when these two magical unicorn people asked me to photograph a wedding session for them. They were planning having an elopement wedding before the craziness of COVID-19 hit, but they knew they wanted some great photos here in […]

Mannnnn, these two’s Baton Rouge engagement photo session is a *prime* example of why the best thing you can do to have a kick-ass engagement session is to just be yourselves.  Pretty clothes are nice, sure.

Unique engagement photography is kind of my jam. So, when these two amazing people wanted to do a completely offbeat engagement session, I was (as you can probably predict) totally down for it.

Downtown Baton Rouge engagement photos are some of my very favs! No less than when I get to spend the session time hanging with people like these two. Lea-Ann is one of those people whom you meet and just instantly know you’re gonna love. I think she solidified herself as a part of my tribe […]

Including your dog in your engagement photos is one of my very favorite of engagement session ideas. I get asked pretty frequently if my clients can bring along their fur babies to our shoots, and–spoiler alert–I am always totally down for that. I’m a huge dog person myself, so I totally get it. They’re our […]

Engagement photography sessions in Baton Rouge are some of my very favorites. I adore photographing downtown, because there is such a variety of different “looks” available within such a short walking distance! Morgan and her honey were an absolutely perfect couple in every way, this night. We started off at the foot of the state […]
