I was SO glad when Laura and Brett were up for a sunrise engagement session at LSU. I very rarely talk people into getting up with the birds for their portrait sessions, but apparently Laura and Brett have a rather lovely dog who happens to enjoy the early morning hours a wee bit, so they were up anyway. Totally worked out, because HOW BEAUTIFUL IS SUNRISE AT LSU? It was nice and cool, and the light was PERFECT. I was one happy camera girl, given that these two were one of the SWEETEST couples ever, as well. We just kind of meandered around campus and got some great shots on a campus that is really special to the two of them, given that this is where they met and fell in love! 

I can't wait for their wedding. Here are a few of my favorite images from their session!

This session made me so incredibly happy, I can't even describe it, y'all. Kim and Jennifer are getting married in July, and I got a chance to hang with them for their engagement session last week. Not only were these two people gorgeous, but holy cow, were they surrounded by gorgeous scenery and things. All of the things. Everything - all gorgeous, all day long. We hung out, and chatted, and got to explore an old church that had special significance to Jen and her family. We then moved on to their property in Darrow, where they're going to be getting married. 

Is there ANY place prettier at sunset?? I do not exaggerate when I say that I am looking forward to this wedding with exactly zero degree of patience. 

Is it July yet?! I can't wait to spend all day long with these two. <3

When I say that Katie and Matt and I bonded from our very first contact, I am not exaggerating one bit. Katie showed up to our consult meeting with a planner containing swear words on the cover, and y'all - I knew then that we were going to get along fantastically. I think anyone that knows Katie and Matt know what I'm talking about - to know them is to instantly love them, and I don't have words at my disposal extravagant enough to express just how much I <3 them. 

 

Photographing the way that I do - photojournalistically - means that I am there for every second of every intimate moment throughout a wedding day, and that takes trust between photographer and subject. It means so much that Katie and Matt invited me into their lives (and on such a BIG day) not as a hired vendor for their wedding day, but as a new and trusted friend. Selecting images to show on the blog post was so hard, because seeing them both just burst with happiness all day in their image makes it next to impossible to pick favorites.

 

But, I did my  best, so here goes - the beginning of Katie and Matt's beautiful story. <3

Did you know that there's such a thing as a vibrating makeup brush? Neither did Katie...until it touched her face.

A Cajun march! A first for me - guests trailed after the bride and groom around the dance floor, dancing as they went.

Y'all. Could this wedding have made me any happier? A totally laid back couple, beautiful sunny day in City Park, a bride that read from Wonder Woman during the ceremony, a groom cracking jokes at every turn and a carousel ride at the end?

I mean, seriously - I couldn't plan weddings this cool if I tried. There were bobble-head cake toppers.

BOBBLE HEADS, FASHIONED AFTER THE BRIDE AND GROOM.

 

I've been out-cooled by this entire wedding, probably, but it was so, SO fun being a part of this day.

Check out some of my favs!

No greater sign of commitment has ever been evidenced than that of Gabe showing up on time for his wedding. Or so I'm told. ;)

Nobody had more fun at this wedding than these two. Nobody.

Two beautiful people + Rural Life's Windrush Gardens on a gorgeous morning = it's hard to make me happier, folks. These two were SO fun and I can't WAIT to shoot their wedding soon! Nothing sets the tone for a successful wedding day than being able to get to know one another before you're staring at each other over the barrel of a camera lens--and I had a blast getting to know these two sweet, funny, totally in-love people. 

 

Here are a few of my absolute favs! <3
