Kenny and Ellen met 9 years ago in Lafayette, Louisiana- he was the charismatic class president and she was the shy, new kid so things got awkward when she stole his seat in English class ūüėČ

They’ve dated for 7 years and you can tell their love is comfortable and so real. This wedding day was the natural next step for them and their excitement was truly bursting at the seams on New Years Eve when they decided they’d tie the knot.¬†This was hands down one of the most exciting receptions I’ve ever been to- they¬†REALLY know how to throw down, ha!

Thank you’s¬†to my second shooter Jessica for being perfect and wonderful.

The entire day was successful because of these people:

Planning – Ginger Cook Designer
Catering –¬†Naomi’s Catering, Inc.
Venue –¬†OLG Church
Wedding Cake – French Kiss
Florals & Decor – Ginger Cook Designer
Hair & Makeup- Antonian Salon

I’d suggest that you prepare for cuteness right now…

Micah is a local photographer who reached out to me earlier this year to book this family shoot and as excited as I was, it definitely didn’t disappoint. We took our time and let Benjamin run the show because y’all, that’s what 1 year olds do! We picked our way through pecan trees and ate up the golden light… oh it wasn’t that picturesque. I meant to say we picked our way through cow patties and pecan trees. But you know what, that sounds a lot like life. Lots of lovely sunlight and a few cow patties here and there ūüėõ

Hope these give you warm fuzzies like they did for me.

Andy and Anna Laurin. Even their names are a lovely pair!

The weather on the day of this session decided to do wonderful things– like drop 10 degrees :). We didn’t sweat torturously in the Mississippi heat which, I believe, was at least partly why they look so ravishing and in love ;). The other part is because Andy and Anna Laurin¬†are perfectly paired¬†just like their name(!!!).

This couple. “A machine” in the kitchen, they told me… Andy grows his own food. What? I aspire to such heights of human purity! He plays guitar, she plays piano– oh and the best part– I’ll just quote Anna Laurin ’cause it’s my favorite: “Images from our wedding day are ones we will treasure always, show our children and grandchildren, and have hanging in our homes through the years. They will be a reminder and memento of the day we entered a sacred covenant – that’s not something we take lightly!

I mean C’MON.¬†This is why I feel like the most honored person ever doing what I do.¬†April 1, 2017¬†will be a day I look forward to with these¬†cuties.
