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

I’ve known Charlie for nearly 15 years.  We go way back when we both worked at the movie theatre and often went out after our evening shift for a drink or two.  We did that more often then I remember.

It still humbles me when a bride and her mother selects DVB to either film or photo their wedding, but Charlie told me from the start that he only wanted my team to document their wedding.  That just blew me away when Charlie told Jennifer that they need to need to go shopping for videographers and photographers and I was the one for them.  That blew me away and my friendship with Charlie is one that I value the most.

Charlie and Jennifer are getting married on June 29 and I can’t wait for my team to capture their wedding day.  It’s going to be a great day for them and for me personally.  To view more photos of their Engagement Session, please visit our Facebook page.

Kevin and Stephanie were married back in June but we finally got our schedules to match up last month to shoot their Formal Portraits and they came out smoking.  I remember when Stephanie and I tried to schedule her Bridal Session and we had so much trouble setting up a date for it.  When we finally had it arranged, she had dress problems and when the dress was finally ready, we didn’t have time and the wedding was finally here.  Her Bridal Session would turn into a Formal Session with Kevin and we could never get our schedules to clear.

Close to eight months later, all three of our schedules finally cleared and we were set for their Formal Session at Rivertown.  Everything about this session was great and their finished photos was smoking.  I knew I had something special during their shoot but it wasn’t until I downloaded the set and saw them in Lightroom that these photos were just awesome.  I couldn’t be more happy with the way these photos came out.

I kept thinking back to their wedding day as you could see how much Kevin and Stephanie loved each other.  It looked great on camera and even better in person.  I even stopped posing them as they were coming up with poses on their own and everything just clicked.  It was great.  Both of them have become good friends of mine and I’m glad that I was a small part of their wedding day and during their Formal Session.  For more photos of this session, please visit our Facebook page by clicking here

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.
