I’m back with another bridal session! Yay! Queue the music! For those of you that read my posts, you already know these are so much fun! Just look at this stunning beauty, Marty, in her perfect white dress. Even her bouquet was all white! Looking at some of these pictures that are a little closer up I thought I should let you in on a little secret.  Do you know that I don’t edit skin 99% of the time!  I literally don’t use photoshop on practically any of my clients!  And while yes, my clients are all gorgeous of course, we all have imperfections!  No one is exempt from that!  So, do you want to know the trick?  It’s how I use light.  I am able to literally blur your skin in the camera so when it comes time to deliver your photos, it’s truly you and no retouching was necessary.  I love authenticity and what better way to give you truly authentic images than to keep your photos 100% you!  Enjoy this bridal session at Greenwood Plantation and start imaging what we can do together 🙂

Mesmerizing White Bridal Session at Greenwood Plantation


Are you as obsessed with bridals as I am?  I literally could shoot these EVERY day and still be in love!  Just bring me your beautiful, butterflies in your stomach, you know it’s the one wedding dress and a stunning array of fresh flowers and we can create magic together!  When my couples book with me and express interest in a bridal session, I give them a list of the very best spots in and around Baton Rouge and New Orleans.  I like to plan your session once you have your dress and have an approximate time that alterations will be done so everything looks perfect!  That’s what Cassidy and I did and I think it they turned out absolutely stunning!  What do you think?  If you want to see her gorgeous wedding at the White Magnolia just click the link!

Whimsical Spring Bridal Session in St. Francisville


If there’s one wedding venue I can’t get enough of at the moment, it’s Race and Religious in New Orleans.  With old-world vibes and the most stunning color palette, it’s no wonder Kaitlyn decided to have her bridals done here.  Her glamorous dress and cathedral length veil added to the romantic feel of the venue.  When I first moved to the South I didn’t even know that bridals were a thing but now they’re my favorite type of portrait to shoot.  I love when brides can get all dressed up and have a session dedicated to photographing them at this beautiful stage in life, right before they tie the knot.  It’s so special!  We did a mix of editorial poses and traditional Southern poses for her session which gave her a ton to choose from in her final gallery.  If you’re interested in having your bridal session done here, let me know!
