Congratulations on your engagement, and welcome to the wedding planning process!
So, you’ve decided on Louisiana nuptials, secured your dream dress, and put together ‘Save The Dates’. Now you need to choose a wedding photographer to capture the best moments of your big day!
To help you out, we’ve rounded up 13 of the best wedding photographers across the state. Whether you prefer a focus on details, candid moments, light and airy photos, or a more moody editing style, we’re sure you’ll find a Louisiana-based photographer you love in this list.
I draw inspiration from the details in every session and wedding. Those are the moments that are fleeting; the ones you want to look back on and remember. The intimate moments that provoke emotion, the ones that are flawlessly you, are the moments tailor-made to YOUR experience + what I'm there to capture (but don't worry, I know how to get in and direct for those insta worthy photos!).
Most people call me Jess. I am a Wedding + Lifestyle Photographer based in Louisiana. I travel all over the state and even outside the state for bookings. I have been a photographer for 4+ years now. I love the art and the craft that is photography, especially in the artistry of photographing people and playing with light.
My style of photography is true to life and vibrant. My editing style is not too moody and not too bright, I considered myself to be more in the middle style-wise. I describe my style as clean and true to the natural setting of a session. I love capturing life how it happens and not making sessions superposed, but I do help you with posing direction and flattering angles.
When it comes to weddings and couples, I am passionate about documenting raw and authentic moments of people in love and living life. I desire to create photos that make you feel inspired and empowered, bringing out the best in you. I am all about heartfelt connection, having fun, and making memories you will cherish. I love when couples are up for anything and trust me in the creative process of capturing them and their day.
I know it can be hard to find a quality and trustworthy professional in all the noise of today's market. If you'd think we would be a good match, let's connect!
