Janika + Brandon :: Wedding

They met 17 years ago in college and without a doubt, were truly meant to be together. When I asked Brandon what he loved about their relationship he told me that Janika is his best friend and every day he spends with her he feels more blessed and more passionate about her than the day before. Love that. TRUE LOVE CONQUERS ALL. The wedding day was proof of that as everything came together so beautifully. It was an honor to be a part of this precious celebration of two soulmates committing to each other forever.

Janika + Brandon: Thank you so much for the huge honor of being your photographer. It was my pleasure and joy. xo

This wedding was dreamed up and created by Kandice of Posh Productions. By far one of the most talented and professional wedding planners I have ever worked with. She is AMAZING. This was my second time to work with Kandice and both times she created masterpieces out of the weddings and was so wonderful to work with. I honestly cannot say enough good things about her and her company. Her weddings are one word: STUNNING. Just see so for yourself.

Amazing details created by Kandice… flowers by Bella Blooms. (You will see more of the details towards the end of this post.)

Janika’s beautiful gown is by the one and only, Vera Wang.

Janika and Brandon did not stop smiling once throughout their intimate First Look moment. I cannot say it enough, a First Look is a moment you will remember and cherish for the rest of your life. The intimacy behind it is something you won’t get otherwise if you chose not to do a First Look. (I don’t allow ANYONE to be at a First Look. It’s super important that the couple have this moment alone. I also do not speak whatsoever during this time. I just am there to capture.)

A sweet moment between the couple while they cooled off in the AC for a minute.

STUNNING church exterior!!

The ice bar was so rad.

My favorite Louisiana tradition is the “second line”. If done right, it can be SO MUCH FUN!!!!!

If this doesn’t make you smile, I don’t know what will:

    That was the best wedding ever!!! The photos are great. Kandice is a wonderful person, and a fabulous person with whom you can work,

    However, the best part of the entire weekend was the bride and groom – Janika and Brandon. They are a beautiful couple and I hope and pray for continued love, respect, and happiness..

    Janika and Brandon are my two most favorite people, my son and my daughter-in-law. I love you dearly!!!

    Courtney: we are so lucky to have had you as our photographer! The images you captured are simply amazing. Your photography tells a beautiful story.

    Thank you also for your professionalism. You let private moments be private, yet still captured them. We almost never knew you were there but you clearly were because we have the images to prove you were!

    Everyone told us that our wedding pictures were the most important thing, so we needed to make sure we had a great photographer. We hit that one out the park! You and Posh Productions make for a whole lot of incredible memories.

    -Janika and Brandon
