Allison and Ryan’s wedding was truly nothing short of amazing and fabulous. A dream wedding!! Even though it POURED that day in New Orleans, the wedding went off without a hitch and was just stunning. All done at Mardi Gras World in New Orleans, they made use of the entire property to its fullest. Wink Designs was there to create a spectacular event and make sure everything ran smoothly. They TRANSFORMED this venue. It looks absolutely nothing like this normally. They created absolute magic and an atmosphere that you would never forget. Not only are they total geniuses when it comes to designing a beautiful wedding, they were wedding ninjas with keeping this event running perfectly. I was beyond impressed with their talent and professionalism. What a great team! I was thrilled to see them make Allison and Ryan’s wedding day dreams come to life.

Thank you Allison and Ryan for having me be a part of your magical day! It was an honor and I hope you cherish your photos forever. xo

  • Oh my goodness. I just love how you see and capture the world. It’s this honest story telling that is so artistically done it slays me. So beautiful.

It’s always fun to shoot on the water. More challenging for sure, but it’s amazing to capture something so romantic as a couple in a pirogue. We went down to the bayou to photograph Victoria and Corey’s engagement shoot. And I love what we got of them. I know they will cherish these photos forever. This is such a special time in their life and I glad I am the one who will be able to document their big day this fall.

    Your work is amazing. I have been following you a few years and love everything you share. Corey and Victoria, you two make a beautiful couple and I can’t wait to see you start a family together! Congrats

    Courtney came out to Lake Martin, to do my engagement shoot it was hot and windy and humid. I almost second guessed my location idea wondering if I had picked the wrong place, but when I saw these shots with the beautiful trees and what Courtney captured I was so Happy. My wedding theme is centered around the South and our Cajun Heritage and I can’t wait to place one of these in our new home. :)
    They will be cherished forever. Thank you Courtney and Emily xoxo

I completely adore intimate weddings. There is something so very special and memorable about it. It is so peaceful, calm and emotional. I love that Ashley and Jeremy opted to only have family members at their wedding. They had about 30 guests total. When I arrived, Ashley was so peaceful as she got her hair and makeup done. It was just her and her mom together in her room and she prepared. The entire mood of the day was so very sweet. No stress whatsoever. I cherished every moment and it was such an honor to be a part of such a sacred and beautiful day.

Ashley + Jeremy: Thank you for inviting me to photograph your special memories. I truly enjoyed every single moment. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love. xo

I love that they chose to do a First Look before their ceremony. This is my absolute FAVORITE moment of any couple’s day. There is just something soooo special about the couple having an alone moment to see each other before anyone else does.

It’s so obvious these two are truly in love and meant to be together.

    Courtney, I have been a photographer for over 30 years and I am completely inspired by your work. Fantastic job!!!

NaKesha and James are the cutest!! A truly stylish and lovely couple. I LOVE what they wore for their shoot. They are definitely a fantastic example of how to dress appropriately for your engagement shoot and how to coordinate outfits but not be too matchy.  I am so very thrilled they chose me to document their love. I absolutely adore what we got of their engagement shoot. And I absolutely cannot wait to photograph their wedding later this year!

Sidney is one of my cousins and she asked me to take her senior photos. I rarely do senior pictures but every now and then I will shoot one. I absolutely loved how Sidney’s turned out. She was a great subject and took direction really well. We were able to include a few with her horses and I just adore those!!! Be sure to scroll all the way to the end to see my favorites. :))

    OMG! Love, love, love! I am in love with the one where she’s sitting on the grass and they are both bowing their heads… simply stunning :)

  • Reba

    Love all … My favorite is the one of her standing on her horse BOLO. Good job both of you????

  • Bethany

    Ummmmm AMAZING. Breathtakingly gorgeous.

Brandy and Curtis are truly one of the nicest couples I have had the honor of photographing. They are so easy to work with! We were supposed to do their shoot outdoors like I usually do but the weather was not good that day so we arranged to do it at my studio instead. Below are a few of my favorites.

I am looking forward to photographing their wedding this summer!
