When I think of Kelly and Jeff, the first words that come to mind are BEST FRIENDS. They are so beyond perfect for each other. They went on a blind date almost 10 years ago, and as you will see in my photos below, it’s so obvious they were meant to be together from that very moment. They are constantly laughing together. In fact, I am not sure if I have ever seen a happier couple. I cannot even tell you how many times they had me smiling the entire wedding day. They are just so DARN CUTE TOGETHER!!!! You will see what I mean… ; )

Kelly and Jeff: Gosh, words just can’t tell you… how grateful I truly am from the bottom of my heart for you both. I am so blessed to have not only met you both, but that I was able to photograph your special moments. THANK YOU!!! xo

If their photos don’t make you smile, well…

Oh and be sure to watch the video at the very end of this post. It’s pretty amazing.

First Look!!! One of my absolute favorite moments of a wedding day.

Kelly surprised Jeff with a boudoir album from our studio The Boudoir Vixen. Let me just tell you, he had no idea. But was THRILLED.

Landry and Will are just adorable in every way. They planned the most perfect Southern country chic wedding with a touch of old Hollywood glam. They invited all of their best friends and family to be a part of their memories and love. It was a beautiful day in every way. The way the sun shined through the moss trees, the way Will looked at Landry throughout the evening, the laughter that was constantly in the air, and how stunning Landry looked. Everything was just perfect. Super excited to share their day with you.

Landry & Will: THANK YOU! So much, from the bottom of my heart for asking me to be a part of your memories. It has been so much fun getting to know you both. xo

Yes, that is Will break dancing. Pure awesomeness.

  • What a gorgeous wedding and fabulous pictures! Love it!

  • Heather Lee

    Stunning! What was the name of this breathtaking venue?

  • Landry Picou Braud

    So so so so in love with every single one of these pictures!! Thanks for capturing the most perfect moments Courtney! You’re amazing!

  • Marcia

    The photos do a great job of capturing not only the exotic bride’s beauty, the groom’s relaxed enjoyment and the venue, they really capture the tone of the wedding and reception! Very well done! (Making note…with a college-age daughter, will our need for a wedding photographer be long off?!)

    Heather–Destrehan Plantation.

Bridget is a hopeless romantic but never thought she would find “the one”. She was driven in life and motivated with school and work. And just wasn’t sure she’d ever find someone who valued these same things in life. Well, God knew better because he brought Mikah into her life and Bridget quickly discovered that not only did he value the same things as her, he actually added to her goals by helping encourage her in everything she wanted and dreamed of. They fell in love and just knew they were right for each other.

It was a beautiful day in Southern Louisiana. Enjoy this beautiful intimate wedding I truly enjoyed photographing.

Bridget + Mikah: Thank you so much for everything. It was my pleasure and honor to be a part of this incredibly special time in your life. xo

I am sharing something so special and sweet today. Angie and Toby invited me to join them in Negril, Jamaica for their romantic elopement. It was just them two. They wanted it to be something special and extremely intimate between the two of them only. I am still amazed that they gave me the honor to be the other person there to witness it and document it. As I learned more about them, I came to adore them deeply. There were so many emotional moments that even caught me off guard a little, as tears welled up in my eyes. I even feel them coming now as I reminisce and type this story out. Angie and Toby have both suffered deep heartbreak before they met each other. Toby was in a devastating car accident several years before, that left him paralyzed and with severe brain injury. But he fought and never gave up to get his strength back and now he is completely healed and back to his healthy self. AMAZING. Years before they met Angie was engaged to another man who fell ill with cancer. Her world was completely shattered, but she cared for him up until his very last breath. After this tragedy she believed she would never find love again. God knew better… he had bigger plans for them both. After they both suffered, God healed their hearts and brought them to each other. They are so in love and so grateful for every moment they’ve been given. They both know how precious life is and that makes them appreciate God and each other so deeply.

I just love their stories. It’s truly inspiring and proof that no matter what dark nightmare you may be facing or have faced, God is still there holding his arms out with his unfailing love and joy. He will pick you up and piece you back together again. I know this personally from my own devastating heartbreak in the past. Which is why I can relate so much to Toby and Angie.

Their day was so amazing and special in every way. It was such a joy to be a part of it.

Toby sent me this sweet email after their wedding:
“I need nothing only wanted to convey my appreciation for how you saw my wife and I’s moment in life. It is truly a gift you have and share with your clients. Thank you for capturing the happiness that we have and feel for one another. It was what I wanted and more. Just to see her happiness and here her reactions when looking and talking about our wedding will be something I will cherish for the rest of my wife and I’s life together. Our happiness is the most important part of hers and my relationship with each other. Again thank you. Regards, Toby”

Angie and Toby: Thank you from the bottom of my heart for including me on this. I will never forget it. It was such an honor.

Angie had me deliver a hand written note to T0by as he finished his vows. It was so sweet how he started crying. It’s so obvious how much these two love each other.

Even though they didn’t have any guests, they still did a First Look with each other which I just LOVED.

Before the ceremony we took some time to walk around for a few portraits.

Ceremony time:

Angie and Toby invited me to be their witness on their marriage license. Wow, such an honor.

Their first dance as husband and wife.

After an intimate dinner, they set off lanterns into the beautiful starlit sky. It was an amazing moment.

    I thank you soooo much for writing this! The Bride is my cousin, best friend and soul sister. I can tell you that these pictures are a beautiful reflection of her and Toby’s love for each other.

Thanks for sharing again you truly made their wedding special !
