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. Hayride Scandal is an amazing whiskey bar in Baton Rouge. They were nice enough to welcome us for a really cool engagement […]

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 […]

Rosedown Plantation in St. Francisville is one of my favorite places to take engagement photos! I mean…just check out this scenery, you guys. The gardens are always stunning, the arched grotto is the cutest thing ever, and there are so many opportunities for stunning images here. PLUS, Rosedown Plantation has one of my favorite qualities […]

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 […]

I’m always down for some engagement photos at City Park in New Orleans, y’all. This is one of my very favorite locations in NOLA to photograph in. It’s a really versatile place, just bursting with gorgeous scenery and perfect light. As hard as it is to get up for a sunrise session, I really can’t […]

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 me a man with a plan, folks! Alex called me a few weeks ago to ask me to help hatch his surprise proposal photography plan. Asking his girlfriend of 6 years, Alex (yes, they have the same first name!) to marry him. And YOU ALREADY KNOW I was totally on board – proposals, […]

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 […]
