Marie & Rickey’s Shreveport Engagement | Louisiana Wedding & Family Photographer Sheryl Finney

Marie and Rickey had a beautiful engagement in downtown Shreveport. One of the things I love to do with my couples is explore and really just get to know them a little more. I try and make our sessions light hearted and focus on my couples interacting with each other, rather than having specific poses or expectations. That is when I can really find the connection and love between my couples and hopefully make them a little bit more comfortable with me on their wedding day.  Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session!

Hannah & Chris – Moody, Louisiana College Wedding

Hannah and Christ had the most beautiful, moody wedding in December, at Louisiana College. Hannah is also photographer and I had the chance to meet her for the first time doing a personal shoot. We just experimented a bit and talked photography, little did I know that she would call me a few months afterwards to hire me to photograph her wedding. It’s always an honor to be apart of someones special day. It’s a huge honor to be asked to shoot another photographers wedding.

Hannah and Chris had a gorgeous DYI wedding, it included the most beautiful palette of various colors and lots of natural elements in the wedding decor. One of my favorite details was the cappuccino grooms cake. Chris is the owner of Hidden Grounds in Pineville and they even had a coffee bar.  I just adored the understated and natural crowns and bouquets and Hannah’s lovely long sleeve, lace wedding dress. Here is the highlights of their best day ever!

Garrison Gardens – Tromberg Wedding | Louisiana Wedding Photographer

Katherine and Jordan had a gorgeous wedding in Texarkana at Garrison Gardens. This beautiful fall wedding had splashes of red and grey blues. I just loved the delicate details of Katherine’s dress. She found this stunning wedding dress at Azarues and her bridesmaid dresses at Bella Bridesmaids. The classic hair and make up was done by Couture Cosmetics.

Their reception was full of dancing and a very insightful shoe game. Never heard of it? Here’s how it works: place two chairs back-to-back on the dance floor for the bride and groom. Remove both of your shoes, then trade a shoe with your new spouse so that you’re holding one of each. Then, have a designated person ask a series of questions about the two of you and your relationship (i.e.. “Who will be doing most of the cooking?” “Who said ‘I love you’ first?”). After each question, hold up the shoe of the person you think is the best answer to the question.

Besides the shoe game they had a wonderful anniversary dance with some sage advice from the oldest couple in the room, along with a very tasty smores bar and some fun shots for the football loving groom and groomsmen. Here are a few from their very special day.  I wish them many many happy and healthy years together!

Scarlett & Matthew-Aubrey Hall, Monroe | Louisiana Wedding Photographer

Scarlett and Matthew had the most beautiful wedding at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church in Monroe, followed by a fun celebration of their love at Aubrey Hall down the street.  I’ve had such a great time getting to know this couple, Scarlett is an amazingly talented up and coming wedding photographer. It was such an honor that she choose me to capture the moments of one of the most important days of her life. Couldn’t ask for a more relaxed but loving couple.

Their wedding was full of beautiful colorful details, gorgeous flowers made by the kick ass crew at Fine Folks and the corvette was just so fun to take pictures of.  Still can’t get over their unique cake topper of a unicorn and pegasuses and they had delicious food provided by Wayne VS the Winnebago.  They had a wonderful day surrounded by their family and friends. Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day.

Scarlet & Josh-Country Engagement | Shreveport, Louisiana Wedding Photographer

So happy to share one of my favorite sunny, country engagement sessions ever. Scarlet is the owner of a local petting zoo, The Party Farm based in Shreveport, Louisiana. You can hire her and her beautiful animals for a fun alternative for birthday parties or school functions!

She wanted to add not only the love of her life in her engagement photos but the animals she loves! I love it when my couples incorporate a little bit of their story into their session. This session was full of tender moments and lots of laughs, and can we talk about that sunset for a moment? Perfect light. It was so wonderful capturing them along with their animals roaming around their property in Shreveport.

Some of my tips for my couples on your engagement session to make them unique and fun:

Think of ways to personalize your session, think of places that you both love to go to, maybe somewhere you met or had a first. Think of activities you both love to do together and how you can incorporate that in your session. Remember this is the story of your love, don’t be afraid to be different or being yourselves. I want to be able to make beautiful images with you and about you.

So here are a few of my favorite moments from our time together.
