I've known Timothy for years. We both went to Lakeview Junior-Senior High School and were in the band for many years. I was happy to hear that he was engaged to Kandice and that they were looking to have engagement portraits made. We met up in Natchitoches and started at Beau Jardin. While dancing and laughing, we moved from Beau Jardin to the Roque Gardens to Front Street.
Thank you, Kandice and Timothy, for being amazing and beautiful people-- inside and out. Congratulations on your recent wedding, and best wishes.
Melissa was shocked when, during our portrait session, Luke knelt and asked her THE question. She said yes, y'all! Check out the rest of the images and the story of the proposal on my blog, the link is in my bio description! #natchitoches #louisiana #southernweddings #beaujardin @beaujardin1714 @natchitochesmainstreet @natchitochestourism #shesaidyes #proposalstory #proposal #futuremrs
Luke had everything planned out. He wanted to hire a photographer, tell Melissa it was just a regular portrait session to commemorate their time in Natchitoches, then BAM! he'd drop to one knee and ask Melissa one of the most important questions in one's life. Luckily for me, Luke contacted me while he was prepping for this gigantic step and included me in his oh-so-sweet plot.
Beau Jardin is one of the most picturesque places in Natchitoches, and as some of you may know, where I was proposed to by my wonderful Sam. I was overjoyed to be able to capture something so beautiful and meaningful at a place that's burned into my heart. Full circle, y'all. Full. Circle.
The day I met up with these gorgeous folks was overcast, and we missed the rain by mere moments. If you know what petrichor is, you know the kind of pleasant rained-just-enough weather we were dealing with that day. Armed with a gorgeous engagement ring in his pocket and past conversations with Melissa about what their life would be like when they made it official, Luke was confident that Melissa would be swept off her feet.
Congratulations and best wishes, Melissa and Luke. May your marriage be blissful and forever!

I recently photographed Cathy and Austin in the historic Natchitoches downtown area. We hopped around the Roque House Gardens before moving onto the rest of the area. This soon-to-be wedded couple will be getting married on June 16, 2016 at the gorgeous Beau Jardin on the banks of Cane River Lake.
I know it's going to be a beautiful wedding and I can't wait to see their photos!
I loved seeing Brooklyn again (who is super smart and sassy) as well their cute dogs Frozen and Rocky!
Best of luck to this sweet little family.
Every couple is unique. Each has different interests and lifestyles. I've rounded up some of my favorite wedding bands, both for men and women. Each elegant ring listed here has the link attach, just so you can go to the sites and see what options they have to offer.
1. For the classic couple
This yellow gold band is simple, beautiful, and a trusted classic.
2. For the avant-garde couple
Anything but plain, these Pau'a shell/tungston/Koa Wood rings are sure to be a statement piece for years to come. Even better if you're planning on getting married in Hawaii... or on a beach... or anywhere there are sure to be tiki torches!
3. For the active couple
Qalo is a really cool company with a simple premise: don't wear that expensive ring while hiking/mountain climbing/swimming/whatever. These rings are perfect for honoring your marriage while being economical enough that you won't worry about losing them
4. For the rustic couple
This beautiful and unique ring has a wood lining and comes in different tones of 10K gold.
5. For the luxurious couple
Diamonds can be a man's best friend, too!
Natalie and Kendrick were the first couple I photographed following a contest I ran over on my Facebook page. They're so genuinely sweet. They met at work and were friends for years before they began to date. 11 years later, they're planning their wedding! They're getting married at the Knights of Columbia Hall on June 4, 2016. They're wedding colors are black and gold, and you probably guessed it, they're New Orleans Saints fans! We met up at Beau Jardin in Natchitoches, Louisiana for their engagement session. We also went up to the Louisiana Sports Hall of Frame Museum to use their awesome copper exterior. Enjoy these sweet photos of this soon-to-be-wed couple. With the help of their event coordinator, Kristina, from Kristina's Event Rentals and Gifts, LLC, their wedding will be the perfect representation of who they are, and the love they share.
