Always a favorite: Happy Anniversary to Erica + Ryan!! We have had the pleasure of working with this amazing family 3 times AND planned the wedding for Erica’s maid of honor! Scroll ⬅️ to see the sweetest parents ever and 3 of our favorite brides in one pic!! #werepracticallyfamily 💞💞💞
It’s a good day when you have an awesome wedding party who are laid back, fun, and a cooperative and even better when you can hand the reigns over to your second shooter and trust that they’ll know how bring it all out them! Big props to the amazing second photographers we work with! I feel like we don’t always show enough appreciation to them but it’s truly a blessing when you can trust someone with your art💛 Thanks to the wonderful ones I work with!
More often than not people tend to forget about the groom’s details. For us, it’s a must that we capture these important parts of the day. Thank you Caleb for allowing us to do so.
P.S. We love the floor in your house.
There's something quite intimate about seeing and capturing make up being applied. It's getting that in-between moment, not quite finished, knowing that this is one step, one moment closer to a finished looked. That, in reference to a wedding day, this is how you'll always see yourself in that flicker of a memory and moment in time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A very talented hair and make up artist once said to me many years ago that make up for something special should reflect you -- if you wear a bold lip on the reg, go for it, or if you don't contour, stay away from requesting overly sculpted features. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's our philosophy here at PLE that every part of your wedding is a reflection of you; the details, the aesthetic, the way the day is planned out. Your wedding and the celebration, though, should only be a hint at the marriage it will become.

One of our most treasured shots is of the bride and her crew in their dresses for the first time on the wedding day. I always feel like it’s the part of the day where it goes from relaxed to REAL! It’s also some of the most beautiful moments that the girls get to spend with the bride before she says “I do.” Say hello to the bride tribe!
I also would like to give a major shout out to these awesome vendors:
Kat + Chuck's stunning spring wedding is featured on @caratsandcake 🙌🏼 This wedding is definitely one of our favorites. So many beautiful details and amazing vendors to bring this vision to life! Link is in our profile!

Raigan and Kyle chose not to see each other before the wedding, but they did take a moment out of their day to pray together and get rid of a few pre wedding jitters! This was one of my favorite moments of the entire day.

Y’all. These last few weeks/months have been a whirlwind. I booked so many things waaay out before having Gray without realizing how motherhood would take it’s toll when you work out of your own home. So if you see me in public and I look like a hot mess, just look away 🙃 I’m working toward a lighter schedule so I can get my sanity back, but I’m SO thankful for my little business and all of my amazing clients who have been so patient and understanding. You guys are just so wonderful ❤️
Any DJ can provide a lapel for your minister, but how many can provide 2 lapels for 2 ministers, two wireless handheld mics, a line in for a guitar, and then mix proper, professional sound for your whole worship band? We can! Msg us today for more information!
You know, I grew up farm where my nearest neighbors were Amish, and you could see nothing but fields and tree lines for miles. I used to think that there was nothing better, and then I took a walk (or a few dozen) through downtown Baton Rouge and, obviously, New Orleans...and I think my mind is changing. I’ll be hard pressed though to ever say that city lights at night are better than an open sky, or the smell of the city during rush hour beats fresh cut hay. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
