let's explore the world together.
Let's be besties
Photography fuels my soul.
It's this wild adventure where I get to capture people in all their different settings. Seriously...no two lives are the same, and no two weddings EVER dance to the same beat. It's like this epic treasure hunt where everyone met in different cities or under completely unique roofs, yet somehow they found each other in this big, beautiful world. The best part? Those photos we snap live on, aging like fine wine.
Picture this: you sit in your cozy living room, your once-youthful hands now aged and wise, grandkids curled up on your lap, laughing and reminiscing as you flip through the pages of your wedding album from decades ago. Your grandchildren are pointing out their aunts and uncles, laughing at the crazy hairdo Auntie Grace had and you two relive this most special day, once again.
And guess what? I get to be the storyteller who documents all this magic and hands you a time capsule to cherish forever. I mean COME ON... I'm swooning over here.
While I call Louisiana home, my heart belongs to documenting love stories regardless of the time or place, from the rolling hills of Tuscany to the bustling streets of NYC. You see, I don't just capture moments; I whisk you away on a magical photography journey. Whether you're planning a New Orleans jazz-infused celebration or an intimate beachside affair in Bali, I'm your enthusiastic partner-in-crime, ready to chase golden sunsets and candid laughs, and freeze them into memories you'll cherish forever. So, let's pack our bags, create some beautiful chaos, and make your wedding day a magical adventure to remember!
"I don't need to hear more, I want to book"
See, my love affair with the lens started way back in third grade when I got my hands on my first camera - a cute lil pink camera. Did I know what I was doing? Nope, not at all! But, I did know one thing: I was constantly nagging to pull my poor brother into countless impromptu photoshoots, mostly in our backyard. Bless his heart, but also shoutout for adding fuel to the fire that is my photography passion!
Fast forward to today, and I'm still the same shutterbug, but with a lot more knowledge and skill under my belt. Thank goodness, right? My ultimate goal is serving you, my fantastic clients! I'm not just snapping away; I'm all about creating an experience that feels like hanging out with an old friend. You've got dreams and Pinterest boards (I do too!), and I'm here to make 'em reality.
Let's talk comfort - being in front of a camera can be nerve-wracking, but trust me, I've got your back! I'll do a happy dance, tell a dad joke, or even serenade you if that's your thing (yes, I love to sing). Bottom line: I'm here to make you feel like the rockstars you are. And when you see those photos, well, they're going to blow your mind, promise! I'm all about going the extra mile because you deserve nothing less.
"There are few things that inspire and excite me more than photography!"
First off, I'm a people person through and through - hanging out with you fabulous people is my jam.
My love language is acts of service. And photographing weddings? Well, it's like the ultimate service. It's not just about snapping pics; it's about capturing moments that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
My photography style? Think fun photoshoots, deep belly laughs, and zero stiffness. We'll be silly, goofy, act like fools and just be ourselves. Seriously, I want you to be you.
And when you see those photos, oh boy, they're gonna hit you right in the feels. They're like time machines, bringing you back to that magical day whenever you want. I'm not just here for today; I'm here for your tomorrows and the generations beyond.
“Every wedding, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”
I hope you like my face... because you'll be seeing A LOT of it on your wedding day. From the sun peeking over the horizon, I'm on the scene, capturing those intimate moments as the mother-of-the-bride and the bridal squad work their magic, getting the bride all dolled up. Meanwhile, I'm also cutting loose with the groomsmen as they sneak a few sips to calm their nerves.
Throughout your entire day, I'm there, a fly on the wall, documenting every step of your journey. The tender moments as you slip into your gown, the side eye glances across the dance floor, and the occasional happy tear. During the reception, whether I'm at the center of the action or discreetly behind the scenes, you can bet I'm clicking away. Aunt Lisa might just become the star of the dance floor, and I'll make sure her moves are forever remembered!
My approach is flexible – I embrace candid shots that capture genuine moments, but I'm also up for some fun, styled shots if that's your vibe. With years of experience, I've got the flow of a wedding day down to a science. I'm here to make sure your day runs smoothly, preserving every laughter-filled, tear-soaked, and love-infused moment for you to cherish for a lifetime.
Rain, hail or shine, I won’t miss a beat.
That’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favorite things. It's important for you to know me and feel like I'm already your bestie. After all, we will be spending houuuurrssss together!
I cry at every rom com movie. Never fails.
Champagne is my ultimate drink of choice (hence the branding around disco balls and champagne)
My dog is attached to my hip and it got even worse since I work from my office. Seriously if he could come to shoots with me... he would
My hubs is also a photographer and if you get lucky - he might even be your second photographer for your wedding!
I have such bad FOMO that I'm incapable of being alone... I probably passed it on to my dog tbh
When I was little, I wanted to be on Broadway soooo bad. Singing and dancing is my stress reliever which is why I'll be busting a move on your dance floor no DOUBT.
lol me and my hubs Gus at our wedding! We love a good time! :)
"Whitney was fantastic to work with! As someone who isn't extremely comfortable in front of the camera, I can tell you she made shooting engagement pictures and the wedding photos a breeze. My husband and I are so grateful to have her pictures to relive the day over and over and loved the creative shots we got!"
"It even ended up raining on our wedding day but I really didn't even notice because she just went with the flow and some how made the pictures look even more magical. Each picture perfectly captured the emotion that night."
"I have been so impressed with every photo I have received from Whitney as she not only captures the moment perfectly but maintains both the integrity of her artistic style and the subject in the photo."
