Its not very often that I have the pleasure of hanging out with a couple TWICE for their engagement photos!! For Alexis and LaShawn, I would do a million more sessions for them as they are some of the most fun people I have ever met! The brutal Louisiana heat could not even phase them and they yet again embraced every moment in front of my camera as if I wasn’t even there!
Alexis put some much thought into hers and LaShawn’s engagement photos and it was just amazing to watch it all come to life! From the beginning she knew she wanted to incorporate a mix of sunflowers and downtown, all while making them as unique, joyful, full of laughter, and FUN!! And gosh were they all of the above!!
It is always my goal to make the lens of my camera reflect what I see as a person. A camera can only do so much really. It can freeze a brief moment in time. But if the meaning behind that moment can shine through the pixels somehow….thats much more than a photograph….its a memory. I’ve learned a lot about these two and the obstacles they have faced together. When I look at them, the way they laugh, the way they hug, the way they talk with each other….it’s easy to capture the relationship and the love they have for one another. No matter how many obstacles they may have faced, their love for each other is as clear as the blue sky.
Again, as I have said before, I couldn’t be happier for Alexis and LaShawn as they experience this season of life together!! I absolutely can’t wait to photograph them a third time for their big day next July!!
