"Remember you’re the one who can fill the world with sunshine."

Are y'all ready for this?! *Chair dances*

Last summer, a group of local vendors and I started collaborating on a stylized photoshoot. These are such a unique creative outlet and a wonderful way to see a vision brought to life. Our plans were sadly halted by a major flood in Baton Rouge, ruining the wedding gown & most of the props. But, we didn't let that stop our dream!

Months later we were able to join together again and move forward. On February 5, 2017, we headed to a private residence in Denham Springs. Everyone showed up ready to work & make magic. All in all the shoot lasted about 7 hours and involved a lot of work, and even more laughs. We had everything from cake, to décor, to hair & make-up, to stationary, and more. Look out for these images to be featured soon in Southern Celebrations Magazine!

Each bride chooses her details for a reason. Drawing out her beauty & personality is always my number one goal, but I love capturing the thoughtfully chosen elements in a way that tells a bride's story.

The best part?! Mon Cheri recently shared the shoot over on their blog! Talk about all the happy chair dances. I'm thrilled to have showcased the dress in a way that makes the designer proud.

Cody & Emily's Lakeside Wedding in Homer, Louisiana - Shreveport Louisiana Wedding Photographer

Emily and I met last year while working in Shreveport. When she told me about her outdoor wedding on Lake Claiborne, I knew I wanted to be a part of it!

Every detail of their wedding was perfect. Emily's friend made her moonstone arm band. Isn't it beautiful?

Cody & Emily's daughter, Piper, totally stole the show!

The look on Cody's face when he saw Emily walking down the aisle was priceless.

Emily's Aunt Judy, who raised her, walked her down the aisle.

The Louisiana weather was gorgeous for the ceremony. It saved the rain until right at the end of the reception!

Aren't they the cutest family ever?!

Piper just turned one. Happy birthday, Piper!

My favorite wedding portraits, possible ever. Did I mention that I LOVE outdoor weddings?!

Cody & Emily, thank you for letting me photograph your beautiful wedding day!
