Baton Rouge Engagement Session at Hilltop and Rural Life Musuem.Read More
Congratulations to Carly + Sam!
I don't even want to remember precisely when this session was because it was too many weeks ago!! Natty has been down for the count with my first trimester so this is later than I would prefer but it was too terribly perfect for me not to share!
The couple was referred from another friend whose wedding I shot last fall. That couple also was a joy to photograph and their friends were no disappointment.
I always say that the backdrops do not even matter as long as the couple has their mojo. And there is nothing truer that I have found.
Carly and Sam have mojo for all the world!
When we talked about photos it was mainly in reference to the clothing choices but man did they bring so much more than their fashion to the shoot! Carly is like a magnet! You just wanted to hang out with her and it made it terribly easy to capture their relationship and personalities. A complete joy to work with!
The two were a perfect match. Both engineer brains and fancy great looks! They complimented one another without even trying- Carly keeping Sam laughing and Sam keeping Carly reminded that she was on a photoshoot :)
It was perfect. We went to Mandeville, where they both have family and roots, and were able to complete our whole session at Fountainbleu State Park by the waterfront and towards the back by the oaks. The morning was as freezing as January gets for Louisiana and it was so perfectly overcast it allowed for a terribly dreamy morning for photographing.
Do you see that face?! I want to bottle that goodness up!! I felt more as if I was at a party with the two instead of photographing them.
They let me do my artsy shots as well! I am a sucker for a lovely silhouette.
I had the thought when we were heading to the oak tree area that we should not do the typical shots for couples. Carly said no piggyback rides and I immediately smiled knowing they would look perfect for a shoulder ride and she grinned ear to ear in complete satisfaction!
Sam was such a trooper and we got some gorgeous things. Who doesn't love Louisiana oak tree groves and shoulder rides on their fiancé. Precisely!
I was as smitten with their images as I believe they were!
Picture magic happens with couple mojo!
Congrats to Meagan + Joshua!
I can't wait to document this darling couple's wedding day in April! Being a wedding photographer is SO MUCH FUN!!! Working with all sorts of dynamic couples, helping them to document their love beautifully, and getting to know the details that make their worlds up!
Getting Meg and Joshua's images for their Engagement Session was nothing short of amazing!!! Let me tell you, Joshua doesn't have a serious bone in his body and it made for a very fun and lively photo session! We went to Highland Rd park area to shoot their shots because she mentioned liking outdoors and pretty areas! Haha... I just ran with it all and we spent lots of time at LSUs Hilltop Arboretum.
The fall colors were on point and the weather was close to cold- as close to cold as Louisiana gets- so it made for an awesome time for all of us!
Joshua has that awesome bulldog look that I think my hubs inherited as well!!! It goes awesome with his bearded manly face!
Engagements are probably a favorite thing for me to shoot. It's so fun to get to know the couple's that have trusted me with their greatest day and I love hearing the stories of how they met, fell in love and the proposal.
For these two, it was all history after first meeting. Love at the first sight kind of deal.
And the big question was hard to keep quiet!!! Meagan was hook, line and sinker the moment they began dating! And Joshua made sure he blessed his girl's socks off!
So here's to LOVE and finding the one that makes all of our days that much better!!
Congrats to Meg and Brian!!!
Love is definitely in the air with these two: chemistry if I have ever seen it!! Love a couple that makes love seem so easy, pure and all natural! This darling couple asked me for an Engagement Session for their marriage that is coming up in January 2017!
I asked her what she was looking for and she gave me loads to run with! Like a girl that knows what she wants! Classic was her number one. So I made arrangements to start at the Old Governor's Mansion downtown Baton Rouge.
We shot several frames with them in the open ballroom. There were tourists coming through at every point of the session so it was a tad difficult to warm them up with an audience but we managed!
Next I brought them in front of the Shaw Center to really just let the couple be themselves. We had fun joking, dancing and twirling. They made it super easy to capture their easy-going selves as we just let them be themselves!
I am quite convinced that this duo could be on the cover of a magazine! Look at that hotness?! They made my job wayyyy too easy! Bless them! We got several images of them in their classic look and then we had a little wardrobe change for them to get cozy and warmed up in front of my camera!
As you can see, it's very easy for these two to be captured. It might have been the drinks mom brought or it might be their crazylove for one another, either way, it was a blast and I think we captured the heart of who they were 100%!
It's proposal season!! If you know anyone that just got engaged be sure to send them my info!!
