New Orleans Proposal Photographer Sculpture Garden 0024 1

New Orleans Proposal Photographer | Michael and Kristen I love surprise proposals! And they don’t get better than this one, really.

Engaged couple with their dog at LSU

What makes me happier than engagement photos with a dog? Not much, folks. Not much at all. šŸ˜‚ Okay, kidding – there are probably a FEW things that make me happier, but…it was really hard to remember them, during this session. Brittany and Kyle asked if they could bring their basset hound Hattie with them […]

Baton Rouge Engagement Photos Windrush Gardens 0382

Engagement photography at Windrush Gardens – this is one of my favorite spots! The LSU Ag CenterĀ  has a lot to offer in terms of beautiful photo locations in Baton Rouge. Windrush–located right next to the museum–is a great mix of gorgeous greenery, blooming foliage, and dripping Spanish moss. Few locations scream “Louisiana” as much […]

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 toĀ just be yourselves.Ā  Pretty clothes are nice, sure. But your photos last forever, and they shouldn’t just be about what you *look like*. They should be about who […]

Baton Rouge Engagement Photography Whiskey Bar 0019

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 […]
