WHAT TO EXPECT
ENGAGEMENTS. BRIDALS. WEDDING DAY.
Neutral colors and simple prints always look best! We recommend 1-2 outfits; one casual and one a bit more formal.
Engagements can be scheduled at any time. Helpful things to consider include what season you envision your photos and whether or not you plan to use a photo on your save the dates!
Ready to schedule? Send us an email with the month and day/s of the week that work best for you and we'll send over our availability!
Our weekend dates are limited, so if you're hoping for a Saturday or Sunday, consider reaching out to schedule sooner!
What to Expect
- Longue Vue House and Gardens (New Orleans)
- New Orleans City Park
- Windrush Gardens (Baton Rouge)
Most locations require purchase of a photography pass
Sessions usually involve chatting, walking from spot to spot, and chatting some more! We're passionate about making our sessions comfortable for you and capturing you in a natural way. Our shooting style is more candid; however, we'll guide you along the way (what to do, how to stand, where to put your hands)!
What (and who) to bring
It's a huge help to bring a friend or family member to help with carrying items and fluffing your dress!
What to Bring:
- Makeup for touchups
- Crochet hook for buttons
Pro Tip: bring a pair of comfy heels the same height as your wedding shoes and wear those instead to keep your good ones clean!
We highly recommend scheduling bridals at least 2 months before your wedding day to allow enough time for editing, rescheduling if necessary due to weather, and printing/shipping.

Wedding Timeline Consultation.
If you don't have a wedding planner, we'll reach out after your bridal session to begin creating your wedding day timeline. We'll go over the details you provided in the initial questionnaire and determine times for the following: hair and makeup completion, dressing, portraits, departures, etc.
During this time we'll also create a family portrait list designed to take the least amount of time!
Help us make the best photos
- Keep photography in mind when booking getting ready locations. Light colored walls and lots of window light look best!
- If you're having an outdoor ceremony, plan it around sunset. We're happy to help you with this!
- If you're having an indoor ceremony, consider having it early enough to have enough light after the ceremony for outdoor portraits!
