hi there. you just popped up on my newsfeed and you are really great! i photograph seniors and weddings and live in carencro and have been doing this for a while and usually when i see new photogaphers online i’m like SON OF A B! SERIOUSLY! ANOTHER ONE? but you are totally super good. i hope this doesn’t come off as creepfest.
i tend to be a little on the obnoxious side sometimes.
anywho. i know you are way good enough to shoot weddings on your own but curious to know if you ever second shoot weddings?

thanks! happy saturday :)

First off, I am a 32 or 33 year old WOMAN and I still write like a junior high girl. I am aware of this. I was very tempted to edit that message above but I like to keep it real even if real means sounding completely uneducated.

I sent that Facebook message to Sarah after I saw her photography online more than two years ago and I am so glad that I did. I know we live in a very competitive world and I am a very insecure person by nature so I don’t love being compared to others but I have gained so much in life by reaching out to people that are my “competition”. I highly recommend everyone do this. Now your competition might turn out to be a real B and then you just learn you a lesson and move on to some other nice people.:)Luckily, We have a really nice group of photographers down here in Southern La.

I am so looking forward to watching Sarah and Chris transition into this whole new phase of life together next month when they become husband and wife!

Madeline and Lance married.

This wedding had so many of my favorites things.

cool weather. sunshine. big families. Gorgeous flowers thanks to Mia with Root Floral Design. lots of flower girls. great friends. lots of love.

If you are wondering why the bride and her girls all look like super models it is because Madeline is in my opinion the most talented make-up artist around these parts. I have gotten to work with her team at Joie De Vivre salon in the past at other weddings and it was so fun to see Madeline as the bride this time.

and now that I am looking at this picture below on my computer screen all I want in life is a big piece of cake.

Victoria Christophe - These are beautiful! I love itJuly 5, 2015 – 12:29 am

Let us pretend.

Let us pretend that my beautiful friend, Liz, here is still pregnant. Let us pretend that these were not taken months ago and let us pretend that she does not have a perfectly cute and fat baby boy at home with her right now that is already a month old.

Also, Let’s pretend that I did not lock my keys in my car at the end of their session.

Thanks for the drive home Sylvester family. xoxo

I forgot my log in information.

Not even kidding.

Every few weeks in 2014 I would think about blogging but then I could never figure out how to log in and make it happen.

So pathetic that it is funny.

BUT log in information has been recovered and I got a little fire up under my toosh to get back on this blog wagon.

So here we go…

Months ago Kristen and Graham showed me some good ol’ southern hospitality during their engagement session.

They drove me around the beautiful property of Grosse Savanne where Graham is a hunting and fishing guide. They also sent me home with a delicious box of cupcakes which I ate in the car. of course.

Thank you Kristen and Graham for the cupcakes and the company. So excited for your wedding this spring.

leslie and b.

b is actually leslie’s pet name for brett but i stole it and call him b too now because it is just so cute:)

this was just such a happy session. can you tell?

leslie’s happiness is contagious and she just giggled and smiled adoringly at her love and told him that he was “so silly” the entire time we were together.

i like being around them.
