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!

Mutts & Struts Rescue Event

What do you get when you mix rescue dogs and drag queens?  Mutts & Struts!

This was the first event of this kind in Shreveport, bringing dog lovers and the LGBTQ community together. We had drag contests, Diva Doggy Bingo, handmade custom treats, a photo booth, raffles, and lots of entertainment! We raised a lot of money for TSR La Baby Mommas Rescue and Jeff Tarpley Rescue and had a great time. Thank you Central Station for hosting us!

Cross Lake Engagement Portraits

C & K had their engagement photos taken at Ford Park on Cross Lake in Shreveport, Louisiana. I love when engaged couples include their pets in their engagement photos! They weren't sure that we could get a photo of both dogs looking at the camera, but I think we nailed it! I can't wait to photograph this sweet couple's wedding at Taylortown Store next year.

Shreveport's Prettiest Huskies

Last month I had the opportunity to photograph three of the prettiest girls in Shreveport! Aren't they beautiful? They're quite the socialites too, since their mom is the founder of the Shreveport Bossier Dog Lovers Club. Fun fact: They know training commands in German! Sag was?!

I can't believe I get to do this for a living! :)

Hannah's Bridal Portraits at Logan Mansion and CedarCroft Plantation

Hannah married her prince charming this weekend, and I'm so excited to finally share her beautiful bridal portraits!

We started her bridal session in the historic Logan Mansion, an 1897 Queen Anne Victorian home located in the heart of Shreveport. Legend says that it's haunted by a little girl, and we did hear some strange noises while we were there! Is it haunted? I guess you'll have to go see for yourself!

We then traveled to CedarCroft Plantation in Greenwood for sunset portraits. CedarCroft is one of my favorite wedding and portrait venues because the large property has countless options for photo locations. I've been several times and I've still only photographed about a quarter of the property!

Hannah, thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding story. Your wedding was amazing and I can't wait to finish your photos!
