Tulip Louise Cinemagraphs Fashion Shoot

Hey everybody!

I've been able to get quite caught up recently, allowing me time to work on my personal projects. Lately, as you know, I've been enamored by moving pictures, called cinemagraphs, and have been dabbling in creating my own.

Today's cinemagraphs are of my fabulously fashionable friend at Tulip Louise. We played around and were able to get some super cool moving pictures - take a look!

Benny Awards Recap!

Hey everybody!

If you don't follow me on instagram, you missed my super exciting news about the Benny Awards: we had a food truck cater the event!

Meredith and I looooove Hammontrees, and once we decided to have the party at our house, the next step was making it super memorable.

Enter the Grillenium Falcon...


It was the perfect touch to add to our party! If you're a bride looking for a fun way to feed your guests, give Chad at Hammontrees a call!

Talk to you soon,

Oak Alley Plantation Engagement Pictures!

Hey everybody!

Today we have more from Jamie and Ben's engagement session at Oak Alley Plantation. And by the way, thanks for your comments on yesterday's post! Because of you're awesomeness, Jamie and Ben get a whopping 10x30 print ($150 value!), so I'm sure she'd be thanking you too if she could!

As a result of this great shoot, we thought it would be smart to start posting our upcoming travel spots on the blog in case any of our couples wanted to do something a bit different for their session. We have a number of different spots coming up in the next few months, so I'll post them this weekend if I get the chance.

And now without further adieu... Jamie and Ben's Oak Alley Plantation engagement pictures:
