In the beautiful little French Quarter Chapel, they promised the rest of their lives, under the thousands of dollars with names and promises hanging from the rafters of those who had come before to say their vows of love.
The Pearl Room was the perfect New Orleans Wedding Venue for this sweet couple’s wedding. Are these two not the most smoking couple!!!! Like holy hotness batman!
She clings to her dad’s hand as he walks her down the aisle, emotions overwhelming her, tears gathering in her eyes. Not because she is nervous or scared…..no because this man at the end of the aisle has had her heart. You can see it in the way he simply respects her, how gentle he is, yet how he loves the fun side of them as a couple also. There are so many small gestures that say it all, without a single word being spoken. It was a wedding day to behold.
It felt like being part of a period drama love story. Surrounded by moss covered trees and a gentle breeze that flowed across the waters of Lake Pontchartrain. Surrounded by their families, Lydia & Marshall exchanged the sweetest most heartfelt vows I have ever had the privilege to hear. I was left with the impression that should two fallen stars ever meet and fall in love in this universe, it would look exactly like these two beautiful souls, joined in love and life.

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 2023, 2024, and even early spring weddings for 2025 (Reminder, I only accept 20 awesome amazing couples a year). 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
I am bold, I am fierce, I am courageous, I am funny, I am sarcastic, I am country, I am unashamedly ME. Let me help you be the same!
