The fun thing about being a photographer in a small town is that fact that I personally know every single person that chooses me to document such special moments for them. For instance, these two amazing people…Kalli and Dakota. Dakota is a friend of Devin which means they are a friend of mine. Kalli and Dakota have been together since the day I moved into this small town. It has always been them two, together, as a pair. When we would run into one at an event in the town, the other was not far behind.
To document this special journey for them is an honor plus to be able to document their wedding journey for next summer is a blessing. These two have hearts bigger than the world and I am beyond honored to be the one to freeze these moments for them to cherish for a lifetime. After meeting with Kalli to discuss wedding collections, we quickly got on to maternity portraits. She instantly knew the beautiful gardens here at the Windrush Garden inside of LSU Rural Life Museum was where she imagined her perfect portraits to be. Upon our arrival, Dakota packed his entire closet ready for his GQ shoot and Kalli was along for the ride. But our time quickly turned into Kalli’s shoot! Showcasing her beautiful baby bump and personality was something so fulfilling to document. She mentioned that she was shy in front of the camera, but honestly she stinking ROCKED it! Have a peek for yourself! Dakota did great but this beautiful momma to be…I mean do I need to explain any more?!?!
