I do.

If you're here because you're recently engaged, you're at the right place!  Your wedding day is nothing short of special, intimate, and maybe even magical.  From the heirloom jewelry to the dress that you'll adorn, I want to capture it all-every single detail, so that when you receive your wedding day images, you relive the day all over again.  Every smile, tear, hug, the first kiss, the dance with your daddy. It's all so special and it passes all too quickly.  

The cake is cut, the guests go home, and the honeymoon ends.  Your portraits preserve your day forever. Make it count!


Believe

in ever-lasting love?

I'm a child of God, a lover of people, a wife, a mom, and a photographer.  I won't sit here and tell you that I was born taking pictures.  I wasn't.  In fact, it wasn't until I got my first "big girl" job after obtaining a college degree in dental hygiene that I found my love for preserving moments in the lives of others through photography.  I love love.  I love weddings.  I love watching the smiles and tears that accompany each wedding and the raw emotion that you simply cannot fake.  It's a treasure to witness these moments,

I'm lucky enough to be called momma by 2 precious boys. My husband is my rock. My maw maw is simply the most amazing individual, and at 91, she still reminds me of the wonderful love that she and my paw paw shared for countless years. I'm also a huge coffee and sweet tea drinker.  Chocolate covered almonds get me every time.  Fall is my favorite season.

Wedding photography is a cherished investment and it's not one that's taken lightly on my end.  A lot of thought and planning is put into your day on our end and I wouldn't want it any other way. For me, it's not about just showing up and photographing your event. It's about creating an amazing experience from our first meeting up until the delivery of your images.

All bridals, engagements, & wedding collections include a flash drive, print release, and online gallery of your images with the ability to download the full resolution images.  Your images are just that...YOURS!  I believe that you should have them!

Unlimited amount of images (100+)
Travel fees outside of Lake Charles do apply

A bridal session is a southern tradition that is loved here in Louisiana.  It's often a great trial run with your dress, hair, and makeup.  It's also a session dedicated just to YOU.  Treat yourself like gold!  If you've always envisioned your bridal portraits at a plantation, it's your chance to make your dreams come true!

This is the day you've been long awaiting!  The day that you've put so much thought into.  You are bursting with joy, maybe a little case of the nervous jitters, and a happy tear or two.  

You may not know exactly what to do or when to move along to the next task of the day.  You don't have to. Prior to the wedding we will go over a tentative timeline that will help shape your day.  You'll be gently reminded when it's time to dress, time to open the gift from your groom, and time to cut the cake. Relaxed. Joyous.  Elegant.  Carefree.

Engagement sessions are my absolute favorite! It's the perfect opportunity for me to get to know the two of you as a couple and see how well y'all interact with one another. Sure, the first 10 minutes might be a little awkward, but I promise you that couples leave engagement sessions feeling a bit like models. It's always a good time!
