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 […]

This intimate Baton Rouge area wedding is, without a doubt, one of my all-time favorites. I’m such a lucky girl in that I get to work with GREAT people on the whole – but this day in particular made my heart sing. Lindsey and Beau live in New York and are–wait for it–theater people! How […]

This Baton Rouge backyard wedding was kinda all kinds of amazing, y’all. This is what weddings are all about – the people, the emotion, and the moments. The venue, and the decor, and everything else are the things that are happening around your wedding. I love backyard weddings because they’re always intimate affairs, and there’s […]

I loved this New Orleans Pavilion of the Two Sisters wedding so hard! With a ceremony at Transfiguration Church, and an amazing reception at Pavilion of the Two Sisters, I was a happy (albeit tired) girl on this one!   If you know me, and what I’m most passionate about in my work, you know that […]

As a wedding photographer in Gonzales, I’m lucky to be able to photograph some of the best couples in the parish. AND at some of the best venues!

Gay Wedding Photographer Baton Rouge New Orleans 53

When these two amazing women invited me to be a part of their destination wedding in Pensacola, I could not say yes fast enough. Cheri and Ana are both seriously kick-ass women! I knew before they told me a thing about their day that it was going to be perfect. Being a Baton Rouge gay […]
