I see beauty in everything. Even the hard times. I am a firm believer that when life hurts you, breaks you, beats you up and spits you out, that you should walk forward…right through the midst of the hardest pain and brokenness of life because on the other side of it all…..you will find a strength like you have never know. And one day you will meet someone who needs that strength and in that moment you will understand why you ever had to walk through that pain to begin with.

My Love & Me
It is not lost on me that I am describing myself in a nice little box, when I am absolutely the farthest thing from a box living human there is.
I’m a lot nerdy. I never actually match, except on wedding days, I wear black… I believe it makes me look classy when my wild frizzy curly hair turns against me in the heat of the Louisiana sun. I love books, Star Wars, GOT(well, except the ending, I still have thoughts about that), and have the most sarcastic sense of humor ever, but at least I can laugh at my own jokes. ;)
I once waxed my underarms and immediately put on gel deodorant after. In case you didn't know, gel deodorant has alcohol in it. This led to the next 20 minutes of my life that were shall we say, very intense. I’m the only girl in a house of guys. So to put it lightly, I am use to dodging curve balls. Wasn’t very long ago I had a diaper-wearing baby goat ramming my legs while cooking.
It gets interesting around here most days.
So why does any of this matter? Because it all makes me who I am.
Fun, laid back, lover of crawfish, puns, taco Tuesdays, and the ultimate elixir of life, coffee. When you are behind my lens, I want you to be comfortable, to feel like I am an old friend from your possibly not-so-clear college days, you know the fun ones, before it all got really serious and adulting happened.
At the same time, I want you to have the full trust that I am there to capture your love, not because I get paid, that’s a nice bonus of my job (and I work hard for it), but because I believe love is the real magic left in this world. I get to spend my days capturing the magic that is you, that is your love, so it can be remembered for generations.
What could possibly be better than that?
I am now booking amazing wedding clients for a very few Fall 2022 dates, all of 2023, and even early spring weddings for 2024. Let’s be friends and have Tacos on a Tuesday after we rock out your Engagement or Bridal session. I’ll bring the skill, you grab the queso. ;)
I am Suzy G
