Raven & Kourtnee Silver’s Wedding at The Brick House Lake Charles Louisiana

The Brick House in Lake Charles Louisiana served as the perfect venue for this fun, colorful wedding. I love nothing more in a wedding than seeing what’s most important to a couple shine through. Every decision Kourtnee and Raven made for their wedding was thoughtful and representative of their time together. Their wedding day was a chance to show their friends and family how much they love and appreciate their support. I captured the most heart-warming moments from the big day! The day after their wedding, they revealed to their family and friends that they will be expecting and due Feb 2020!…. Congratulations to the new couple!!!

Brandon & Payton | Provost wedding at The Cash and Carry Building | Empire Of The Seed

TELLING YOUR WEDDING STORY THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHS

I am inspired by passionate and emotional people who believe their loved ones are the true heart of their wedding. I loved working with Payton and Brandon they are the type of couples who want their wedding to represent all that is unique about who they are both as individuals and together - couples who want to throw caution to the wind, and simply laugh, love and savor every moment with the people who bring them the most joy in the world. 

I believe images are more than photos of your wedding, they are a window into your life, the story of who you are, and the relationships which brought you to this moment. Your images should forever bring you back to those moments, to how you felt and to the people you love. These photographs are not just for you, they are an heirloom which will bring alive your story to the generations to come, connecting you to your loved ones long after you are gone, and reminding them that your story was also the beginning of theirs. Your images are the story of your past, your present and the promise of your future - they are to last a lifetime.

Congratulations to this wonderful family! Wishing you lots of love and happiness.

The Birth of Colson - Lake Charles Memorial Hospital For Woman.

Brittney reached out to me about photographing her birth story, and it was immediately evident how important it was to not only capture her son's arrival, but also to have tangible memories of the love between her and her boyfriend Ted.

When I met Brittney and Ted....I knew two things: there birth would be beautiful and it would be brimming with love. They were so open, so excited, so ready to meet their baby boy Colson.

Brittney have had a very high risk pregnancy and got induce on September 25th 2018, 3 weeks before her due date. I anticipated joining her in the morning and maybe having a baby by the afternoon. But Brittney progressed quicker than any of us could have imagined, and by the time I arrived at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital for woman, she was already ready to push. A team of nurses rushed to get her ready for her doctor when baby Colson couldn’t wait any longer and made his arrival weighing 5lb 7oz and 18.5 inches. She pushed her baby out with only a few strong contractions. What an AMAZING team of nurses at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, they were able to take care of mom and baby right away with no issues until her doctor arrived a few minutes after giving birth.

Lake Charles Memorial Hospital for Woman provided Brittney and her family with wonderful care during her labor and postpartum. They encourage an hour of uninterrupted bonding time so Baby Colson got to nurse right away and stay on Brittney's chest for as long as he wanted. It was a beautiful birth with a beautiful family...and I'm so glad they invited me into their space to photograph their story.

Wearing Your Mother's Wedding Dress.

It's true that there is something ineffably fascinating, magical almost, about stepping inside a gown that has been worn and loved in the past.  

Many young girls fantasize about wearing their mother's wedding dress. With a bit of tailoring and alterations, this childhood dream  become a reality for Paige.  "I couldn’t imagine anything more special than carrying on the legacy of love that my  parents have for each other.  She said. “It was way more meaningful than buying a designer dress. “I felt very lucky to be able to wear the dress and honor it. 

I always enjoy photographing weddings. There's so much love in the air and the bride and groom spent so much time carefully planning all the details. It was not any different for Dustin and Paige's wedding, either! Their day was truly wonderful, specially when Paige father Mr. Erich Mansell preformed their wedding ceremony at their beautiful church in Sulphur Louisiana. Paige mother and father have been married for almost 27 years. They are a living example of how a couple can be committed to their love and nurture a family‘s growth year after year. Below you  can enjoy some of their wedding photos from 1992.

Dustin and Paige were such a delight to work with and I wish them many wonderful years to come.  Enjoy the photos.

Lake Charles Memorial Hospital For Women.

Thanks for stopping by, fellow photo lovers. I have a special treat for you today, and it comes in the form of a cute little fighter named Stella. She came into this world on July 6th at 8:59am. Weighing 7lb 6oz  and measuring in at 20 inches long. 

A few hours  after I left Stella, she developed a heart condition. One of her valves to her heart closed after she was born. Thankfully  the amazing nursing staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital were able to make this discovery in time.  Stella was quickly airlifted to New Orleans where she spent several weeks. She had surgery to repair her valves. Stella is such a little fighter, and she is doing great.

There really aren't very many things that are as beautiful as bringing another life into the world. What an honor to capture such a pivotal turning point and special moment in this family lives. I know they will treasure these pictures forever. 

Check out the cutie for yourself, below.

Have you thought about having your birth story photographed, or a fresh 48 session but aren't sure if it's for you? Contact us for more information.

The secret to a stress-free wedding day? Having a great timeline.

When it comes to your wedding, timing is everything! That’s why creating a wedding day timeline is absolutely vital—even running a few minutes late can throw the whole day off-track

There are a number of reasons everyone from your caterer to your photographer may request your wedding timeline. Timelines are essential to stress-free, or at least smooth flowing wedding days. That’s because everyone you’ve hired, the friends you’ve asked to join your bridal party, and extended family members all need clear guidelines on when are where they need to be. Otherwise, well, things can get kind of crazy, quickly.

Make a list of all of the events (getting ready, photo sessions, cocktail hour, first dance) that need to happen before and after the ceremony and then determine how long each of these will take. You can then start to plot your wedding day agenda accordingly.

Here is a sample timeline of our  8 hour wedding photography coverage.

WeddingPhotographyTimeline-8x11.jpg
WeddingPhotographyTimeline 2-8x11.jpg

Your wedding day timeline should be given to all of your vendors, as well as any VIPs (family members, wedding party, etc.) the week of the wedding. That way, everyone knows where they are supposed to be and when. On the day of your wedding, your wedding planner or event manager should be the “keeper of the timeline,” making sure things are running smoothly, but also enlist a family or wedding party member to keep an eye on the clock and enforce the schedule. 

Bethany and Logan, Louisiana Love!

Hi everyone, welcome back!

I took Bethany's Senior photos in 2012 only a short year after I started my photography biz. We had such a blast going to different locations around Sulphur Louisiana, trying different outfits and props. I always remember how much fun we had. After 6 years she contacted me, this time to capture her wedding day this upcoming November. I am so honored, that after all these years she remembered me in a sea full of great photographers. I am so humble and excited to be able to capture these life changing  moments for both of them.

Logan and Bethany met in Kindergarten in 1999 at St. John Elementary and they started dating on November of 2013 . Logan proposed to Bethany in Las Vegas  Nevada last year on a hot air ballon. How romantic!!! :)  The balloons props represents that moment when he proposed.  They also love spending time outside at their camp by the river, What a better way to show case their love and show how beautiful Louisiana is than by going on a boat ride and  taking pictures on their canoe. 

Here are some of my favorite images from their session.

Quinceañera Photo Session. A Hispanic tradition of celebrating a young girl's coming of age - her 15th birthday.

Hi everyone, thanks for topping by my blog.  Today I have the pleasure to share with you this super fun and exciting session I shot a few weeks ago in Iowa Louisiana. Ellie Martinez is fixing to celebrate her 15th birthday in September and before it gets too hot we did a pre-quinceanera photo shoot at her aunts ranch, with the beautiful traditional dress and tiara, she looked like a princes. Here's more info on the tradition.

The Quinceanera tradition celebrates the young girl (la Quinceanera), and recognizes her journey from childhood to maturity. The customs highlight God, family, friends, music, food, and dance, that is what makes the celebration unique and very special. The Quinceanera celebration traditionally begins with a religious ceremony. A Reception is held in the home or a banquet hall. The festivities include food and music, and in most, a choreographed waltz or dance performed by the Quinceanera and her Court. The Quinceanera traditionally wears a ball gown, with her Court dressed in gowns and tuxedos. Guests usually receive small tokens, cápias, to commemorate the celebration.

There are many traditions throughout the quinceanera celebration. One of the most popular is the Changing of the Shoes. The father or favored male relative ceremoniously changes the young girl's flat shoes to high heels. This is a beautiful symbol of the Quinceanera's transformation from a little girl to a young lady.

Cody and Hannah's Engagement Session

Hello there,

I had the pleasure of taken Cody and Hannah's engagement session a couple of weeks ago at the wonderful Lorraine Bridge. A wooden bridge across Bayou Lacassine connects Jeff Davis and Calcasieu parishes near the small town of Hayes Louisiana. This old bridge has become a great location for fishing and camping.  Here are a few of my favorite images from their session.

Does your wedding really need uplighting?

Hi there,

I have been asked a lot lately by couples if they should have up lighting for their wedding reception and if it will make a difference on their wedding photos. My answers is YES!...up lighting creates a dramatic effect on the look of your reception room for a relatively low investment. If your wedding budget has room for lighting, you're in for a great experience, I recommend using uplighting thru out the reception room but specially around the dance floor. . Not all weddings need lighting, but the right lights lend warmth, elegance and drama to a room.

I do not provide this service, however a lot of great Dj's do, like Mobile Sound Entreatment  and also venues like Grey Plantation and the Brick House Catering & Events to name a few. 

Here are a few reception images from the Adaway wedding we shot  in february 2018! I love how the back light make the images come alive. 

Venue: Grey Plantation in Lake Charles Louisiana.

Must Love Dogs, Engagement Session. Lake Charles Louisiana.

We meet again, dear blog readers!

I recently photographed Tyler and Amanda's Engagement session at the chapel of the Holy Spirit In Grand Lake Louisiana. This little spot has become one of the most popular locations in lake Charles and grand lake area for photographers to shoot sessions and they even host weddings now. Such a beautiful property! 

This soon-to-be wedded couple will be getting married on 12/15/18. I am super exited to be their wedding photographer. I know it's going to be a gorgeous wedding! 

Future wedding details aside, let's get to the present Tyler and Amanda's engagement session! These two are real naturals in front of the camera. Their good looks, fabulous outfit choices, a sublime location and their genuine love for each other made this photo shoot a wonderful time! 

Best of luck to the happy couple! May these two live happily ever after!

Spring and Easter Sessions, South East and West Louisiana.

Spring is here!! Yay!!....

 I don't know about the rest of the Country, but here in South East and West Louisiana, the weather has been so AMAZING! Bright sun and blue sky. As I mention before on my last blog, It's been 3 years since I did Easter pictures due to my busy wedding schedule. Easter is one of my favorite holidays, I love seeing the kids dressed with their Easter outfits and getting to hold the baby bunny and chicks for the very first time, their face expression is priceless and I look forward to that moment at every session. Capturing those images bring me lots of joy!

I have been working on my Easter set for a while now since I announced I will be doing the mini sessions on March 10th and 11th and honestly is not fully finished yet, but after been outside working on my flower beds and cleaning my yard, I noticed  my big azalea bush is blooming with beautiful purple flowers. The photographer in me got super excited and I decided to set up part of my Easter set next to the beautiful flowers. Days like these makes  me appreciate life and what our Lord has created for us in this earth. 

Here are a few images from my little models who were excited to see all the live animals. For information on booking my Easter sessions click HERE
