One of the great things to being a wedding professional is the ability to see a family grow.  That’s why I was so glad to hear from Heidi when she called and asked me to take Carson’s 1 year old photos.  I hadn’t seen Heidi in some time and was glad to catch up with her on life and her two sons.  It was a treat to meet Carson for the first time and the first thing I noticed was how similar Carson looked like his dad Chad.  It’s almost a spitting image of Chad and Carson was a superstar for his first photo session.

Just like his older brother Mason, Carson loved being in front of camera and was just a photogenic baby.  Every pose that Heidi and I for him, he nailed and best part of the shoot was the candids of Carson just being Carson.  Whether he was playing with his toys or eating his cupcake, Carson was a natural and was great to work with.  I can’t wait for the next time I’m able to shoot Heidi and her family

One of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever been a part of was being in the delivery room for the birth of baby Dominic.  A few weeks earlier, Wayne asked me if I was interested in taking photos during Dominic’s arrival to the world and I was game for it.  I was really nervous on this shoot, but once Wayne and I put the scrubs on and went into the delivery room I was ready.  I saw Jennifer lying down there and she put me at ease and told me to do my thing and I just shot everything.  The doctors and nurses were great in telling me what was going on and when I saw Dominic come out, I was in awe.  It was an awesome experience and I would like to thank Wayne and Jennifer for having me capture this for them.

One of my joys in  filming someone’s wedding is getting to know the couple throughout their wedding planning process.  I enjoy getting to know new people and I feel that the more invested you are to a couple, the better their wedding film will be.  For Courtney and Alan, I didn’t get that process but there is a reason for that.  First off, Alan called me about two weeks before the wedding and I’m happy that I was free for his wedding.  It was a blast to film their day and one of the lasting memories I will remember from their wedding was at their rehearsal mass.

Towards the end of  mass, Alan walks over and introduces me to Courtney.  She had no idea who I was and Alan then tells her that I’m the videographer and her reaction was priceless.  She was stunned and thrilled to have her day filmed and their day was a blast.  Their family and friends were great to hang out with and I couldn’t complain about anything of their day.  It was great.  Please enjoy their closing montage above and many thanks for Courtney and Alan for having us on their wedding day.

About a week before her wedding, I met Christi and her future Mother in Law, Mrs. Denise, for her bridal session at Longue Vue Gardens.  I couldn’t have asked for a better day then the one we had for Christi.  The past several times I’ve been at Longvue were for video sessions, but this one was a full photography session and I was happy with everything I had planned for Christi.

Longvue is such a great place to shoot with the mansion in the background and all the gardens around it.  Every place is picture perfect and one of my favorite areas is the long fountain.  Capturing the water slow down with Christi in the background made for a beautiful shot.

Words can’t describe how much fun I had with Christi and Mrs. Denise on this shoot.  Please enjoy some our her portraits below and you can view more photos from Christi’s session on our Facebook page by clicking here

Everything was perfect when Dalene, her entourage, and I went out for her Bridal Portrait Session this past April.  When she told me that she wanted her session at Audubon Park, I was excited as Audubon is my favorite place to shoot.  There are so many great places at Audubon Park and we a blast going around the park.

It’s always fun to take Bridal Portraits because you’re never at a loss of suggestions.  The mother wants this shot, the Maid of Honor likes this pose, and the best friend will suggest this.  Every suggestion I got was great and Dalene was a rock star throughout the whole day.  In between all the snaps that was taken and footage filmed, Dalene just kept saying thank you to all the “your beautiful” and “congratulations” shout outs from the walkers and runners from the track.  It was fun and I just love doing these.

Dalene is  great person and she had her destination wedding last Saturday in Honduras.  I can’t wait for her and Paul’s New Orleans Style Reception at the Audubon Tea Room with all her friends and family who couldn’t attend the wedding in Honduras.  It’s going to be a great time and a second chance for Dalene and Paul to have the time of their life

Ever since I finished editing Amanda’s Bridal Session, I wanted to write this blog piece and post some of her bridal portraits. I knew I couldn’t post them until after the wedding and when I got home from her day early Saturday morning, I grew excited.  I knew I could post her bridals for everyone to see.

Amanda was amazing during her portrait session.  She was comfortable and just very relaxed during the whole time Janell and I was with her.  It helped a lot that her mother, maid of honor, and one of her bridesmaid was there to offer support.  Everyone offered ideas on what type of shots we should take and I felt that we hit a home run on everything we did.  It was a great day behind the camera and offered me a sneak peek at what she would be wearing on her wedding day.

I’ve known the Seghers family since I was in high school and they were just awesome to shoot during their Family Session at City Park.  I hoped for more sun during the day, but besides that everything went perfectly and I couldn’t be more happier.  They were such a photogenic family to shoot and the grandchildren were especially fun to play with out in the open.  I had such a fun time with them and please enjoy some of the photos below.  For a few more photos of the session, please visit our facebook fan page.
