Fall Bridal Portrait Session on a Louisiana Horse Farm

Kristin wanted to have a bridal portrait session before her wedding day and had the idea of including horses as well. She and photographer, Erika Parker settled on this gorgeous Louisiana locale–a horse farm with lots of great textures and photo ops. The horses, stables and rustic backdrop was the perfect place to fulfill Kristin’s portrait sesh desires. Gorgeous in every way, we love the images they captured and Kristin looks absolutely stunning and ready for her big day. Congrats to our bride-to-be!

Will you be having a bridal portrait session before your wedding day?

Gorgeous {Wine-themed} Fall Engagement Photos

Oct 28 2014

Wine-themed Fall Engagement Photos

Jack and Loan’s fall engagement photos were a sweet culmination of their long history together. They’ve known each other since they were kids–and Jack has always had a {huge!} crush on Loan. Finally as teenagers, the crush turned into something more when Jack got up the courage to present her with a rose and ask her out on Valentine’s Day. Now, over a decade later, they’re engaged to be married! We’re happy to share this sweet wine-themed e-sesh from CW Photography by Marie. Taken by a beautiful lake in Fairfield, Connecticut, this session is super playful, and joyous. Happy. Happy. Enjoy!
