Brittany & Joey} wedding

When Joey first laid eyes on Brittany over 7 years ago, her hair was in a ponytail, she had her glasses on and was wearing PJs. They were hanging out with mutual friends at a Baskin Robins ice cream shop, and even though not many words were exchanged that day, Joey knew there was something unique and special about Brittany. It wasn’t long after that meeting that their love story began and they realized more with each passing day how undeniably perfect they were for one another. Brittany contacted me over 2 years ago before she even had a wedding date and told me how one day she would be getting in touch with me to shoot her wedding. I was completely flattered when she came through on that promise. Not only is she an utterly fabulous person, but her devotion and love for Joey is something to be truly admired. On the day of the wedding, all she could think or talk about was Joey. She wasn’t worried about all of the details of the wedding or what might could go wrong. She just kept saying, “I just want to see Joey”. She reminded me in those moments that the wedding is truly about that, two people… coming together, and committing to love each other forever and ever. That nothing else matters, and to just relax, have fun and enjoy the moments of the best day of your life.

The wedding was held at the Old State Capitol in Louisiana and it was a completely beautiful day.

The following photo was taken from Brittany’s bridal shoot. I just love it and decided to throw it in here since I wasn’t able to post her bridals until after the wedding. Such a gorgeous bride!


Back to the wedding day, even though it felt amazing outside, it was an extremely windy day but I just love how the dress looks here.


And here, how fun is this shot? Work it! Because her wedding was an evening event, and we wouldn’t have much light once the ceremony was over, Brittany made sure to schedule the events of the day to be sure to give us enough time to take several of the group shots before the wedding. Not only is this a great idea because you can have fun and relax beforehand, but the more natural light we can use for your photos, the better. It makes a huge difference.

All of the children in the wedding party were so stinkin’ cute.

The stained glass window inside of the Capitol was amazing.


This just makes me plain happy – such an adorable ringbearer!


Joey looking quite spiffy.

Michael captured this photo as Brittany made her way down the aisle with her father and stepfather.


And I captured it from this angle. Brittany didn’t take her eyes off of Joey the entire time.


Michael got this from the balcony.

The view from the rooftop of the Shaw Center where the reception was held. A beautiful ending of a beautiful day. Congratulations Brittany and Joey! I wish you all the happiness in the world!
