Brittany & Koty were married this spring at Carter Plantation in Hammond, La.  I first met Brittany when she contacted me about photographing her son Kaison’s first year.  I remember the first time I ever saw that sweet baby and those gorgeous eyes.  So adorable.  I had been working with them for a little while when Brittany asked me if I would photograph her and Koty’s wedding day.  I was so excited to be able to be part of their day as I had already grown to love their little family so much!  It was a beautiful (and hot!) day full of fun, love and laughter.  Good times were had by all, even baby Kaison got out on the dance floor! :)  Congratulations, Koty and Brittany!  Love you guys and can’t wait to see you again soon!  xoxo

Kathryn & Daniel were married earlier this year on her family farm in a little town called Dry Creek, Louisiana.  This was a “destination” wedding for us as it was several hours away.  We had never been to that part of the state so Ray and I were excited and set off for an adventure.   There wasn’t much at all to the little town, but the big hearts and love we found in these families gave us all of the excitement we ever hoped for.  From the minute I pulled up I was greeted by several family members welcoming me and helping me with my gear.  I was offered pie and tea and amazing southern hospitality.  Since this was a destination wedding, I had never met Kathryn face to face; we had only spoken over the phone.  When I walked into the room where she was getting ready I was taken aback by her beauty and the love that poured from every corner of the room.  Her and her sisters were busily getting ready and people were buzzing around all over the large loft bedroom that they shared.  It was so sweet to watch each sister help another with their hair and makeup and then to watch their mother beam with pride at her girls.  From there I went out to photograph the flowers, dress and other details like I normally do.  When I was shown the flowers, my breath was taken away.  They were absolutely gorgeous.  The kind that every photographer dreams about!  I could have photographed those flowers from every different angle for hours. :)  Even more impressive is that they were made by Kathryn’s dear friend.  Kathryn and Daniel chose not to do a “first look” so they would see each other the first time when she walked down the isle.  The ceremony was held in the family cemetery where Kathryn’s father and sister could be part of her joyous day.

It was very overcast and the forecast called for torrential rains all day.  By some miracle, the rain held out through the ceremony and only started to sprinkle during the family portraits. They had prayed that it would not rain and I was so thankful their prayers were answered.  After the ceremony we headed over to the reception at a local Christmas tree farm!  How exciting!  They served breakfast for dinner and had cinnamon rolls for the grooms cake.  Yummm!  The rain did finally come but no one cared.  The laughter coming from under the tents was infectious and you couldn’t help but join in.

I hope you enjoy these photographs from Kathryn and Daniel’s special day.  I know that it is a day that I will never forget and am extremely thankful that they trusted us to capture these memories for them.  ♥

 

Karah and Micah were married last fall at the beautiful Berry Barn in Amite, La.  As you can see, I am a liiiitle far behind on blogging but I just loved this wedding so much that I had to post it. These two were the perfect couple!  They were super laid back and just genuinely excited to get married that day.  I loved all of the special fall touches Karah used to decorate the venue and her flower choices were stunning.  Everything about this day was simply beautiful.  As they approach their first anniversary, I want to wish them many many more years of happiness, love and laughter.  Happy early anniversary Karah and Micah! ♥

Oh, this family gives me all the feels.  I first met Anna several years ago as a beautiful blushing bride planning her wedding day.  We were suppose to have a quick meeting at a coffee shop to discuss my shooting her upcoming wedding.  That “quick meeting” turned into about a two hour, acting like we were best friends all of our lives, visit.  We just clicked and as they say, the rest is history. :)  Fast forward a couple of years and a couple of kids and now we have Ms. Emma and Mr. Ethan.  Mr. Ethan was the tiniest baby I photographed this year but I still managed to get him to show me a few side rolls. ;)  Don’t they make the prettiest babies??  All.the.feels. ♥♥

 

How blessed am I that I get to snuggle tiny little babies every week and that is my JOB???  Very!!  Mr. Carson was nothing short of perfect for his session…I have those baby whispering skills, you know ;).  I just love all of his images especially his little adventure set up.  How adorable is he there??  ♥
