Rosedown Plantation in St. Francisville is one of my favorite places to take engagement photos! I mean…just check out this scenery, you guys.

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 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 […]
