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 […]

I love photographing engagement sessions in New Orleans. Crescent Park is one of my particular favorite locations, too. But you know what I love photographing even more than engaged couples? Kick-ass, adventurous engaged couples. Autumn and Adam were the best for our Artistic Engagement Photography New Orleans. Not only did they drive two hours to photograph […]

I love a good Baton Rouge Proposal Photography story, y’all. And mannnnn, did this proposal deliver on the excitement! I was so honored when Cameron contacted me and asked me to photograph his proposal to Kaila. We met a few days before the big day to go over details. It was so fun hearing about all […]

Let me tell you about these two, guys. I was so honored to be asked to photograph Bailey’s proposal to Hannah a few months back, and got to know them then. They are SO much fun. Sweet, and funny, and laid-back, up for anything – and above all, totally nuts about one another. Bailey’s a […]

They’re getting married at White Oak Plantation soon, and I can’t wait to show off their engagements ahead of the big day. Windrush Gardens and the Rural […]

There are few things I love more than being in on a surprise! So, naturally, when Russ contacted me about photographing his surprise proposal to Caroline at Magpie Cafe in downtown Baton Rouge, I was *all in*! We met at Magpie Cafe on Perkins Road, near LSU – where they’d had their first date. The […]

Jennifer and Gabe’s engagement photography in downtown Baton Rouge was just perfect, y’all. From the amazing Fall weather, to the clear skies, to the stunning light…it doesn’t get much better than this. I got to hear all about their engagement story, and let me pass on that information–‘cuz it’s awesome. So, Gabe’s a mechanic, and loves […]

One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is getting to meet all kinds of amazing people. This stage in a couple’s life is kind of a big one. I’m always humbled and grateful to be asked to document it. But these guys were particularly near and dear to me! I hadn’t met […]

A little Baton Rouge engagement session magic for you, right here! At the Armory Capitol Park. I loved these two from the start – seriously. We met when Brad hired me to shoot a surprise proposal session for them. While it took us a while to coordinate engagements due to their crazy schedules, I think […]
