April and Patrick Married!

Part One: Preparation and First look~

April and Patrick were married on July 26th at the beautiful Windsor Court Hotel. I absolutely love the way April and her sisters & friends were relaxing and getting every detail ready for the big day. Their room was a bustle of activity all day! Everything seemed to roll smoothly and the "rain" only lasted about 2 hours so it was sunny and bright by Ceremony time! After the makeup, hair and dress were done to perfection it was off to have the First Look with Patrick. He seemed a little nervous but also excited and the nerves melted away as they embraced for a few minutes. The smile on his face as he turned around was priceless. Exactly what you would expect from a soon to be married Groom! We had some fun exploring the different spots around the hotel for some portraits before they said their Vow's and then up to the top floor for an amazing Reception and a LOT of Dancing into the night! I just want to thank both families for such an awesome experience Before During and After the wedding. It makes me love this job so much every time I am blessed with clients like you! 

Part 2 coming soon... Ceremony & Reception

April's Bridal Portraits

I am so excited to finally be able to share April's Bridal photos with everyone! April and Patrick were married recently and it was a difficult choice for her to pick the favorite image to display at the reception, so we ended up printing two. That for me is awesome in itself. When I first met April I knew we would hit it off in a huge way, she is very sweet and down to earth with a little bit of spunk, just like me. We took full advantage of the City Park area including the Botanical Gardens and had a blast stopping at every picturesque location to be sure we had the perfect image. One of the shots I absolutely love ended up as the latest image for my New Orleans Bride magazine advertisement which was pretty exciting for everyone. You are stunning April.... I hope you enjoy looking through these again.

Elizabeth and Jason Engaged

I met Elizabeth through a mutual friend and I have to say... what a lucky girl I am. My clients are so awesome. So this is a "quickly planned" wedding with the actual engagement ring making it's appearance literally the morning of the session! It's one of those things a girl just knows that is going to happen. They will be getting married in less than two weeks and I am so excited to be there capturing all the moments of the day!
