Jacob and Karah at The Grand Marais Ballroom in Jennings LA

Well hi again, everyone!

Let's give it up for one amazing couple, who just so happen to be newlyweds. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Daigle!

I absolutely loved photographing Karah and Jacob's wedding on March 25th 2017 at The Grand Marais Ballroom in Jennings LA

Jacob and Karah met in college, where they both were attending Mcneese State University. Jacob was going for a Bachelor's in Nursing and Karah was going for a bachelors in sociology. Jacob pop the question on Christmas eve while they got pulled over by a cop!..Yes a cop!!... that's something you don't hear or read everyday. They tricked Karah to think he had some serious traffic tickets and his drivers licenses was suspended, the cop told Karah to drive his truck to the station and when he ask jacob if he had anything to say he got on one knee and propose,... What a great proposal!!

When I asked (bride's name) what her favorite part of the wedding was, she said: "I had tons of favorite moments but one of my tops would have to be rapping off all the lyrics to the song “my lipgloss is poppin” with my bridesmaids to the groom!"

You could tell they were really having the time of their lives loving every minute of their special day enjoying their wedding day surrounded by family and friends who loved them. 

As for me, one of my personal favorite moments of the wedding was when she walked down the aisle with her dad and Jacob turned around and saw her for the first time. 

This amazing day would not have been possible without the help from:

Kayla's Bridals at The Secret Garden In Sulphur LA

Almost every bride in the south has a bridal session. Kayla's session can be described as sleek and modern with a touch of softness. This styled bridal session was inspired by her beautiful gown from Suki's Bridal & Formals in Beaumont Texas.  I wanted to keep the look of the session clean and light filled, just highlighting the intricacy of the dress and Kayla's beauty. The Secret Garden in sulphur is a gorgeous venue, I am obsessed with this location with  and how beautiful it is. I  love the idea that a bridal session can be kept minimal but still insanely beautiful.

Mr. & Mrs. Boudreaux at The Grand Marais Ballroom in Jennings LA

Hello!

I've got another fabulous wedding for you guys today! The happy couple consists of Brandon and Hannah, two people that anyone would love to know. Their wedding day was truly unique at the Grand Marais Ballroom in Jennings LA. The brides dad baked all the wedding cakes you see, each cake was a different flavor and they were truly amazing!!!!....Hannah's dress was seriously gorgeous, she had a handmade beaded belt, her boudquet was a fan she used when she became a Coushatta tribe princess a few years back and she had costume beaded  moccasin shoes to dance away the night. I had a BLAST capturing all the memories from their wedding day thanks to  Andrew Simon with DJ Skitts hands down a FABULOUS DJ who made the night so much FUN!!!.

The whole day was amazing. Join me in wishing Brandon and Hannah many happy years together. 

 

 

 

2017 Wedding season - Brennan & Brooke Duhon at West Cal Arena and Event Center in Sulphur LA

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog. I am not much of a blogger so I will start with the opening of our 2017 wedding season,  the Duhon wedding on March 4th 2017 just a few weeks ago. I always enjoy photographing weddings. There's so much love in the air and the bride and groom spent so much time carefully planning all the details. It was not any different for Brennan and Booke’s wedding, either!  The wedding and the reception were at West Cal Arena and Events Center and was catered by Cajun Cafe Events & Catering. The beautiful wedding cake's were provided by Pronia's Deli and Bakery. 

We had a lot of fun taking wedding pictures, as well. They decided to not see each other until Brooke was walking down the aisle. The emotion I captured in Brennan, was truly priceless! Okay, let's get to the pictures! Brennan and Brooke were such a delight to work with and I wish them many wonderful years to come. Enjoy! 

A Pocahontas inspired Bride, Lake Charles LA

I am super excited to finally be able to share these beautiful images from Luz's bridal session a few months ago at a private home on Lake Shore Dr in Lake Charles LA. I love my clients, they are very special to me.  Ninety percent of my weddings are referrals from friends and family from past brides. I met Luz a few years ago when I had the pleasure of shooting Jennifer and Zack Woodley's wedding in May of 2014. Since then Luz has been a brides maid at a few of my weddings and when her fiancé proposed she contacted me to capture their special day. She's a beautiful LATINA  from Mexico that knows how to smile with her eyes and pose for the camera. She made my job so easy and non of these images are retouched. Her amazing friend and makeup artist Jennifer Woodley did a phenomenal job with Luz's make up. Mrs. Woodley can be contacted through instagram at MUBYJEN or email her at inquiries.makeupbyjen@gmail.com.

When I asked Luz  about having a two piece wedding dress ( witch I think is very beautiful and different) she said she was inspired by Pocahontas. Her long dark hair and her petite figure made her look better than Pocahontas I must say. Today she married her best friend at one of my favorite State Parks, The Hodges Garden State Park in Florien LA. I can't wait to share  some of the images from their special day. This park has been the backdrop of many bridal sessions and lots of great family activities. I'm sad to say that the park will  close next week do to budget cuts from our state. Hopefully they will re-open soon because it is the perfect location to have a wedding and enjoy the nature trails and gardens with family.  

Bridal Portraits - Lake Charles Louisiana.

A special thank you to Mr. Allan Devall for allowing us to use your beautiful home for Laurynn portraits. Enjoy!
