I'm so happy you're here! Grab a sweet tea and take a look around!
I'm a wedding photographer, but I'm also a daughter, sister, aunt, cat mom, storyteller, wannabe-interior designer who has a tiny (okay...very big) obsession with Joanna Gaines!
I enjoy writing and sharing the knowledge that I've learned over the years in the wedding industry!
I hope you love reading the blog, seeing our work and grab lots of helpful tips along the way!

Oh, friend… what a wild few weeks right?! One minute you’re planning the wedding of your dreams, making final preparations, placing the final touches on your seating charts, when suddenly we’re told to not gather with more than 10 people, schools closed, working remotely, you name it! This pandemic is certainly nothing to simply brush […]
Emily was sitting on the beautiful bridge when out of the corner of my eye I see two little girls running, full speed ahead while saying something I couldn’t quite hear, straight up the stairs to her. Emily glanced at them and gave a friendly smile and wave. When they were finally close enough to her I heard one exclaim, “Are you a PRINCESS!?!?” Emily laughed softly and said, “I sure am!” This produced a tiny shout of joy, followed by the question, “What kind of princess are you?” to which Emily replied, “I’m a New Orleans Princess!”
I told Emily that I had my blog post title!
I photographed Emily’s sister, Kimberly last year and was able to work with Emily at the wedding here in Biloxi, where both girls grew up. Emily was the perfect Maid of Honor for her sister and now it’s her turn!
I then had the opportunity to work with Jimmy and Emily again for their engagement session here in New Orleans at City Park when I just fell in love with the beautiful area. I knew I wanted to have a bridal portrait session here one day for sure.
I was going to be in the area the week of Mardi Gras for a friend to go out of town and had the idea to reach out to a model for a session while I was only 45 minutes away from the city. I remembered that Emily was close to the area and was getting married in just a few weeks so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to ask if she had the time for a model shoot. SHE MADE TIME for me and I’m pretty sure I happy danced in my office! No shame! She said she and her wedding photographer had already taken some in another area, but she’d be happy to have some in the park and model for me, too. I was giddy!
I love working with models, but a real bride that might actually want to print a photo for her home, or gift a portrait to her mom that I’ve taken just makes my heart burst with joy.
We began at Bevolo in the French Quarter. The dress, hair, and area all tied in SO well together, don’t you think? Then we went to City Park for a lovely sunset. It really was a day fit for a Princess!
Emily, I can’t thank you enough for doing this styled/model shoot with me, especially on such crazy short notice! I appreciate it more than you’ll ever know!

Top Tips for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Videographer While the right photographer is capable of producing absolutely breathtaking photos of your wedding day that you can print for albums and your home, we can’t capture each and every emotion that you’ll want to remember. It’s for this reason that so many couples are also choosing […]
Wedding planning. Crazy, chaotic, so-many-decisions wedding planning. You delegate the details of your special day out to a coordinator, caterer, photographer, videographer, florist, DJ, and the list goes on and on.
But what about your honeymoon, the first vacation of your married life? Do you have hours upon hours to spend researching destinations, finding the best price, reading a million reviews? I sure didn’t when I was deep in wedding planning mode! Luckily, my fiancé, Matthew, turned to a travel agent to plan our honeymoon. She arranged everything for us and even tracked down his missing luggage. It was a stress reliever, a weight off my shoulders, to have an expert take over the honeymoon planning details.
Now flash forward almost six years, I am a travel agent with Bragg Travels, a veteran-owned Dream Vacations franchise. I love to help couples find the perfect place for them to unwind after their wedding, to connect with one another and come back refreshed to start their life together.
When Kayce asked me to write this a guest blog for her, I knew I needed to highlight the special benefits of using a travel agent to organize your honeymoon.
I can’t thank Daphne enough for writing this for my sweet couples/followers! Having just planned a trip myself during the end of the wedding season, I can’t imagine being a bride or groom and doing this alone! You have too much to think about anyway, so this is a task you should absolutely hand off to someone else and simply enjoy this special time together. <3
