Justin & Bailey's fall Engagement Session done at Botanical Gardens in New Orleans, La. I met Justin & Bailey this summer at the studio in Slidell. These two are true High School sweethearts and one adorable couple! We are so excited to capture your wedding in the summer of 2018 at Southern Oaks Plantation in New Orleans, La.

  • How did he propose? We want all the juicy details!

    A few weeks before April 23, Justin told me that he had got a photographer for us to go get new couples pictures done, which I had mentioned to him previously that I wanted new pictures of us. He told me to go pick out a new dress and to pick him out some clothes to wear. The day before he took me to Fountainbleau State Park so we could look at where we wanted to take them. So now it’s April 23, we arrive at Fountainbleau State Park and we started taking pictures. We started at the pier and went down the beach. Our photographer said she only had a few minutes left before she had to go to another party! As we reach the end of the beach area Justin stops me and reaches for my hands.... then he starts to speak and as I grasped on to what was happening and he was telling me how much he loved me (honestly I was to shocked to remember half of what he said) he knelt down on one knee and all I heard was .... “Will you Marry Me?” . As he got the ring out I said about time!! So at this point the photographer takes a few pictures of us after. She then says she has to leave to go to a party. As we are walking back to the car ,Justin asked if I had any feelings that he was going to propose and I had no clue, I was completely surprised which it is vey hard to surprise me. We finally reached the car and I said I have got to change out of this dress and he kept saying wait you can’t so you can show your parents dressed up. Well as we are heading home Justin’s turns left instead of going straight. I said where are we going and he said you’ll see. Well come to find out he rented one of the meeting buildings and as we turned in all of our friends and family were gathered out by the tree!! He had yet surprised me again and had throw me an Engagement Crawfish Boil with all our family!!
