Thomas and Meghan enjoyed a wonderful afternoon and evening with family and friends. Too many magical moments to share all of them but these are a few of our favorite ‘moments that matter’. Congratulations and many blessings for a marriage filled with joy, laughter and love!
Gorgeous Bride – Beautiful Setting
The weather was perfect, the setting stunning, and the bride glowing. We had a great time working with Meghan for her bridal session in Houma Louisiana. The dress was gorgeous and the venue could not have been better. Congratulations Meghan!
Intensity – Football Moments
Blane, a senior at Brother Martin High School, showed his intensity in part one of his senior portrait session. He was a great model and fun to work with. I have to admit, I miss the good old pigskin days and wish I had some photographs like these to reflect upon. It was a great playoff run for Brother Martin but the season is now over. Fortunately, the memories of his “moments that matter” will last a lifetime.
We had the good fortune to spend a few brief moments with these lovely young ladies as they prepared for a High School right of passage, Homecoming. The memories from this night will be among the many memories that they will reflect upon through the years. Ladies, savor the moments, and get ready to experience many more “moments that matter” soon!
The Oh So Decent Proposal
Sylvia and I were very fortunate to play a role in the engagement of Kevin and Stefanie. Kevin contacted us several weeks ago about his plans to stun his love with a poolside proposal at the Hotel Monteleone. The couple currently resides in Florida. Kevin, a long time New Orleans aficionado, decided the Big Easy and his favorite hotel would be the perfect location. Kevin’s planning was meticulous and the love and affection he expressed for Stefanie when he spoke with us was inspirational. Soon enough the big day arrived. The staff at the Hotel Monteleone was fantastic. Management and support staff ensured that every step of Kevin’s plan went off without a hitch. From reserving tables to making sure all staff in the areas in play were well informed. Stefanie had no idea what was in store for her. So, at the designated time, I pretended to be taking portraits of Sylvia. The couple arrived, and after chatting, smiling, and laughing together, Kevin stunned Stefanie when he dropped to a knee. The emotions were intense and their passion for one another was unmistakeable. What a moment and experience! We were thrilled to be there to capture it. Not surprisingly, Stefanie, with a huge smile, said “YES”! After a few poolside pictures, next on Kevin’s agenda was the well known Carousel Bar & Lounge, where the couple’s engagement was announced and celebrated. After the newly engaged couple enjoyed a cocktail, Kevin had arranged for a carriage tour of the city. We tagged along and stopped at several scenic spots to take photographs to commemorate the occasion and so that generations to come can enjoy some of the happy couples “moments that matter.” Thanks to Kevin and Stefanie for allowing us to be a part of their special night, to the Hotel Monteleone, and to the Carousel Bar and Lounge for working hard to make sure everything went smoothly. Romance, my friends, is still alive and well, especially in the Big Easy!
I love working as a wedding and senior portrait photographer in New Orleans, Houma, and Thibodaux. However, my work does keep me quite busy. It does not leave much time to travel to Baton Rouge to visit my alma mater, Louisiana State University, or LSU. I recently made some time and found that the campus is as majestic as ever. Here are a few images that I believe capture the ambiance and character of this unique university.
