Natalie & Kelly | A Baton Rouge, Louisiana Wedding

I’ve never been to Louisiana and don’t really know how to describe it well. One of Kelly’s friends pretty much hit the nail on the head by saying, “down here we’re all about food and family”. That very idea had me thinking of not only my family and how much I love them, but also how lucky I was to get to know Kelly and Natalie’s. I was even able to stay with my past clients, and now good friends, Dee Dee and Brian during the wedding weekend. It made it hard to leave in the end.

Natalie spent much of the day tracking a major storm on her phone, hoping it would pass by to the North. It did not and I have never seen rain come down like it did that that day. As a result, ceremony plan A was out of the question, plan B was flooded, so plan C it was. The wedding guests packed into a formal living room inside the White Oaks Plantation. But the second Natalie put on her dress; all signs of discouragement were gone. After the ceremony the rain stopped in time for a few portraits and then started again, forcing the bride and groom to run inside, setting the scene for one of my favorite images from that day.

I hope every time a hard rain rolls into town, Natalie and Kelly feel a connection to their wedding day.

I think you two are nothing short of amazing!

    Great job, in what I am sure was a stressful situation! The formal living room was beautiful. Love the night outside portrait and the tilt shift one.
