Carly & Matt's Engagement Portraits

Happy Thursday!

Ecstatic to share Carly & Matt's engagement portraits with you today! Their southern engagement session was held at my favorite ranch in Zachary, Louisiana. Shout out to Mr. Larry for always being the best host!

Carly and Matt have been dating for 6 years! They are high school sweethearts and always put God first. They are probably the sweetest human beings you will ever meet. Seriously. I met Carly earlier this year when I was looking for a nanny for Liam. To say she has been a blessing to our family is an understatement. She loves Liam like her own child and has truly become a part of our every day. Liam loves her to the moon and back because she's beautiful inside and out. They have the sweetest bond. I thank God everyday that we crossed paths and could not be more excited for her and Matt during these months leading up to their wedding. Now that I'm done crying, please enjoy a few favorites from our afternoon together!

Carly and Matt, you two have THAT kind of love. It's special. Never lose it.  So incredibly happy for you both, and I know May 27th can't come soon enough! Enjoy!


An Extraordinary Day

Hey ya'll,

I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter Sunday!  I have been squirming in my seat to share this blog post with you!  I'd love for you to meet these two musically sound sweethearts, Heather and Matt.  Heather and I were college sorority sisters, and we also happen to be photografriends. ;) She is an uber talented artist AND photographer, and truly warms your heart with her presence alone.  Heather and Matt met in Nashville, Tennessee and after getting engaged last year they have made their journey back to New Orleans to start their life together.  They both share an infinite love for music, art and each other.

When Heather asked if I would want to take their engagement portraits, and shared her ideas I couldn't wait to get them in front of the camera!  We started our session at the New Orleans French Market, did some shopping, a little smooching and played dress up.  Then we headed over to their new digs, where Matt carried Heather over the threshold (cutest thing I've ever seen) and I even put them to work on some moving boxes.  We wrapped up the session with the tune of adorable love song from Matt to Heather (he's definitely a keeper) and some front porch snuggles.

I can't describe the immense love these two have for each other but just take a look below at how it shines through in these photos. They will be getting married this Friday (YAY!) in New Orleans, and I couldn't be more excited for them.  Thank you Heather and Matt for such an EXTRAordinary day.  You guys are so lovely, seriously.  Enjoy!

xoxo, KRP
