Sweet family and surprise proposal session in St. Francisville, Louisiana at Rosedown Plantation with gorgeous oak trees.
When Hannah and I were discussing places to do their engagement session, she brought up Darren's family land in Clinton and asked if that would be okay. UM yes! Ok, I don't remember exactly how I answered her, but that's how it went in my head. Family land is always, ALWAYS okay. Whether it's sentimental land to you or not, it's always refreshing and something unique.
So, we met in Clinton. I was welcomed by a herd of puppies, it was the best. We stepped over (and probably in) cow manure every two seconds. But man, it was so beautiful that I didn't even mind. Hannah and Darren were lovely together. They were up for any sweet and crazy prompt I gave them. And patiently waited for me to get my thoughts together when I was trying to be creative. We shot until the sun went down. I'm pretty sure I would have had them running around all night had we not ran out of sunlight. Seriously, how does one look so perfect while running??
I can't wait to document these two on their wedding day this December. It's definitely going to be one for the books!
Whitney and Doug were my first wedding clients, ever. I'll never forget reading the email she originally sent me, saying that she loved my work and was getting married at Fontainebleau State Park in April and that she wanted to discuss wedding photography with me. I immediately knew we would be an amazing fit for each other! I didn't even realize weddings at Fontainebleau was a thing, but I was so excited about it ― it's such a beautiful state park here in Louisiana that I often visit to unwind.
Meet Laci and Justin. I met Laci in high school. She's always been so outgoing and never meets a stranger. Throughout the years, we stayed in touch. I've watched her become a great mama and now I get to watch her become a wife. I can't wait for their wedding next May!
We took their engagement pictures in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. When Laci mentioned she wanted to take pictures somewhere in the swamp, I knew exactly where to go! They were up for any of my crazy ideas, laughed when a bee wouldn't leave me alone, got their shoes muddy, jumped a fence, and went with the flow.
