Scottish Rite Wedding // Shreveport, Louisiana

When Douglas and Hannah had their first coffee date, neither of them know that they were starting an incredible love story.
Every part of their wedding day was perfect- from the jewel tone decor to the Disney music during the ceremony, you could feel their personalities in every detail.
Hannah, I hope you never forget the way he looked at you as you walked up the aisle toward you. I tear up just thinking about it! Douglas, you hang onto this girl- she may be the only person in the world who laughs at your jokes (even if it's only occasionally).

Thank you for letting me a part of your love story.

A huge thank you to everyone who made this day perfect for Douglas & Hannah!

Caitlin's Maternity Portraits - Hemps Creek, Jena, Louisiana

I love working with friends from my hometown, and I am very honored to have been chosen to capture Caitlin's maternity portraits. I think she thought I was crazy when I suggested us getting in a creek for portraits, but it was SO worth it for these beautiful photos!

Special thanks to Caitlin's sister, Megan, and her mom, Mrs. Misty, for helping with the photos!

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!

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."
"Okay!"
:)

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!
