Andy + Anna Laurin

My day started around 7AM for this wedding and I loved every second of it. The sun peeked through oak leaves when I arrived. Everything was quiet and waking up– except for Anna Laurin getting ready in the back of First Presbyterian Church of Ocean Springs.

What followed was a intimate affair filled to the brim with meaning. That’s what you want on your wedding day. Meaningful details and moments. It’s always an honor to capture it.

The excitement a couple has on their wedding day never gets old for me! Hope you enjoy.

I am just all giddy today, so excited to share this engagement session with you! It’s been sitting in the “blog post” que and its time finally came.

They are a perfect pair with a love for the water and dancing to music from days past. I tried to weave these elements into their photos to make the images authentically them.

I do love engagement sessions. Every photographer knows it’s the best time to get to know your couple before you work with them on the wedding day. It sets expectations and everyone at ease. I would say it did just that for all three of us and it has me even more excited to work with them!

October can’t come soon enough!

Where do I even begin? My friendship with Mallory began almost 6 years ago when I hired her to do my wedding makeup. Little Paige and little Mallory, meeting for the first time, awkward as always. We are lanky ones, both of us, add a touch of clumsy and you have some decent entertainment.

She is a special one. We’ve grown alongside each other as individuals and business owners- that alone gives this shoot so much meaning for me. Thank you Mals for picking me!

Thanks to The Petaler Co. for providing Mallory’s bouquet. Blooms always add something special to bridal portraits!

Makeup – Mallory did it herself, of course!

Up until Mother’s Day I’ll be offering portrait sessions for those special ladies who are more than likely, mostly, behind the camera when they’re documenting their own families.

Recently Michael and I had family portraits taken by Ashley Upchurch Photography (she is as precious as she is good at what she does) and the images she captured of me and Trip have filled parts of my heart I didn’t think needed it. I look at them constantly! Mostly when he naps and when I’m about to go to bed. 😉

Session deets: $250, 30-45 minutes, 10 digital images

Recently I had a good friend of mine come over and let me shoot her and her sweet babe Gianna just loving on each other. Aren’t they too sweet for words?
