Wow! What can I say? I’ve been kicking this idea around for quite awhile and was beyond excited when it all came together. I am so in love with the idea of ladies going out of their way to ask their friends to be a part of their special day in a really meaningful way. I wanted to focus on just that little bit of time that the girls have all together before the day really gets kicked off.
I am so grateful for all of the amazing talent that came together to make this shoot happen!

I love it when a family trusts me with their memories. I had such a good time with Darian and few years ago and was delighted that her mom called me to photograph, her little brother, Caleb’s senior portraits as well. Caleb can’t be put into a box and was just as comfortable in urban settings as he was in country ones.
When I put together my best of blog post for last year I realized just how much hadn’t made it to the blog since I was so busy. This is one of those weddings that I was shocked that I had not blogged, especially since I had such an amazing time with these guys. There was so much love and fun on their big day and I really was so honored to be a part of it. My favorite part was how they incorporated their engagement story into their reception decor. Keep an eye out for their tree of thankfulness. You can also take a look back at Laura’s Bridals.

I had such a good time with Matt when we headed to downtown Lafayette. I got a good idea of the vibe he was going for from his survey and was really looking forward to capturing that for him. A big thanks to Lagniappe Records for letting us duck in their shop and take a few images. I wish him the best of luck as he wraps up his high school career.
