Amelia + Jason - Engaged

Amelia reached out to me earlier this month to photograph her engagement session. After we went over the details, we decided to go to City Park, one of our favorite places in the city. 

The day we shot was beautiful with a slight overcast with a soft breeze. We instantly connected as we had a lot in common, and over the course of an hour, we got to know each other and even learned we knew some of the same people (y'all know NOLA is super small).

Amelia, a Retention Specialist, and Jason, an Account for the City of New Orleans, met on Plenty of Fish about 4 years ago. They took their time to get to know one another as people and friends, and according to Amelia, took courting to a new level by dating for 8 months before they became a couple. Jason decided to surprise Amelia by proposing using black stickers are her front door. As she was leaving, she initially missed the message, so Jason had her go back inside to make sure they didn't leave anything. When she came back out, she realized what was on her door, and the rest is history! They're set to marry in May, and I wish them nothing but love and happiness!

Dara + Victor

Dara contacted me about a month ago to capture her engagement session during her student's dance competition. Immediately during our phone consultation, we hit it off like we'd known each other all our lives. I'm not sure what it is about my work that attracts my clients, but we always seem to click! My close friend and favorite Make-Up Artist, Tamara, assisted me during the session in the quarter, and we had a blast! New Orleans has some of the most beautiful architecture I've ever seen, and it complimented Dara and Victor so well. You can view their engagement images below!

 

Alaina + Bernard

I am very fortunate to have some very awesome clients. I meet so many people in my line of work and hear so many beautiful love stories. Sometimes these people become life long friends, after all, photographing your wedding is very intimate. So when I met Alaina and Bernard, even though we'd only corresponded through e-mails, during their engagement session, it felt more like I'd known them for years. Alaina, quirky and fun and beautiful has such a positive aura about her, and Bernard, or Bee as she calls him, ridiculously brilliant as he is comical, kept us laughing with his silliness. There's something so authentic about their love that just radiates from both of them. I am so looking forward to their wedding in September. In the meantime, check out the images from their session!
