"Will You Marry Me?"

This is an event I never thought I would see, much less photograph! My husband's Lieutenant said he would never get married, so when I got his message to photograph his surprise proposal to his beautiful girlfriend Rhonda, I nearly fell out of my chair! 

Rhonda and her friends went out to what they thought was a girl's day at Holly Hills Farm, while Lieutenant Chavis and I hid waiting for her! He painted signs saying "Will", "you", "marry", "me", and "yes" and set them against the jumps that she was going to ride with her horse, Romeo. When she started to ride, Lieutenant Chavis snuck to the last jump with the "Yes" sign and waited for her on one knee. Her reaction was priceless! 

I'm so honored that he thought of me to be a part of this important time in his life, and proud of him for thinking ahead to hire a photographer!

Engagement Session in Benton Louisiana - Shreveport Louisiana Wedding Photographer

I had the privilege to take Brea & Emily's engagement photos last weekend in Benton, Louisiana. They love the outdoors, so Cypress Black Bayou park was perfect for their photos!

Emily looks so sharp in her uniform! She serves in the United States Air Force, which is her dream career. Emily, thank you for your service!

"I'm going to take pictures of you through this bush."

Check out Brea's flaming hair!

"I hope to always remember the simple love that we share and the laughs that come with it." -Brea

Emily said she didn't like having her picture taken. I'm calling bull on that! How cute are they?!

Hey guys, thanks for letting me take pictures of you in a park bathroom! I was itching to try a light painting portrait with the Pixelstick.

I had such a wonderful time with you! Thank you so much for being up for all my kooky ideas!

Also, special thanks to Emilee Self of Bits of Flair Photography for assisting me this session, and for finding all my lost lens caps/batteries/filters/hardware. Assisting me can be a struggle, so I really appreciate your hard work, random singing, and our impromptu zoo visit!
