Kristen :: Bridals https://hilarylacombephotography.com/blog/2019/1/kristen-bridals Every wedding photographer knows that the worst part of our job is doing an amazing bridal session and having to wait until after the wedding to post them!!! I have been itching to post these for some time now.  Kristen made a STUNNING bride.  She also has the sweetest personality.  I absolutely loved working with her throughout her engagement to Justin and ultimately capturing their special day.  <3

Paige :: Bridals https://hilarylacombephotography.com/blog/2018/11/paige-bridals The worst thing about being a wedding photographer is having to WAIT to post bridal sessions until after the bride is MARRIED!!!! I have been itching to post Paige's bridal session because everything about it is just GORGEOUS!!!!  Not to mention, her daughter Naomi is in a few of them and she is just adorable!!!  Paige is now a married lady as of last night!!!

Mr. & Mrs. Suhm https://hilarylacombephotography.com/blog/2018/10/mr-mrs-suhm Ashley & Tyler were married on August 18, 2018!!!!  Their wedding was so filled with love and emotion from everyone in the room!  Evan and I truly felt like family throughout the entire day.  Ashley and Tyler's families are just simply wonderful.  Two families became one on this day and everyone cried about it.  I even teared up a few times during the day.  I love being able to witness pure love between two people that were meant for each other.  Ashley and Tyler's love for one another is so evident and I am so glad I was a part of their special day!

Mr. & Mrs. Reister https://hilarylacombephotography.com/blog/2018/8/mr-mrs-reister Scarlett & Ryan were married on June 16, 2018!  They are probably two of the most relaxed people I've ever seen on their wedding day!!  At least it seemed that way to me!  Their wedding was a blast!  They wanted to do a first look and it made everything super easy as far as portraits.  They got EVERYTHING out of the way before the ceremony so they could go straight to their reception!  Their relationship is super fun and loving!  I've enjoyed getting to know both of them over the past few months.  I had the honor of capturing their engagements, bridals, and wedding day!  It's been a fun ride and I'm sad that it is over!!  Scarlett is seriously one of the sweetest people I've ever met and her thankfulness to me is overwhelming.  It's clients like these that are the reason I do what I do!!! They just moved to Florida and are settling into life as a newlywed couple.  I'm super excited for their new journey together!

Brooks Family :: Lifestyle/Newborn https://hilarylacombephotography.com/blog/2018/8/brooks-family-lifestyle/newborn I can't say enough about how much I LOVE this family.  I have been photographing Aiden since he was born!!! Remi Nicole Brooks is their newest addition!  Their family is now complete!  I loved capturing these special moments in their home after coming home with their new baby girl.  Aiden is the BEST big brother.  He loves his sissy so much!  Love the Brooks family!!!! xoxo!

Ashley :: Bridals https://hilarylacombephotography.com/blog/2018/8/ashley-bridals Now that Ashley is a married lady, I can finally blog her BEAUTIFUL BRIDAL SESSION!  She is a timeless beauty.  We used Madisonville Presbyterian Church as our first location and a family friend's plantation home as our second location.  It was a photographer's DREAM!!!  She was stunning in every way.  Her dress, veil, and accessories exude simplicity and elegance all at the same time.  I have loved getting to know Ashley over the past few months.  She is GEM.  She is so kind to everyone around her and has the sweetest spirit.  Tyler is one lucky man!!! Something about Ashley that really got me is her TRUST in me as a photographer.  She trusted me every step of the way and believed in my art!!! Thank you Ashley for being nothing short of AMAZING throughout this process.  xoxo!

Mr. & Mrs. Yeats https://hilarylacombephotography.com/blog/2018/7/mr-mrs-yeats Autumn and Seth were married on June 9, 2018!  I have so enjoyed getting to know Autumn these past few months.  She booked me for everything from engagements, bridals, boudoir, and wedding day!  By the time the wedding day came, I felt like I was photographing a friend of mine’s wedding day.  Autumn is probably one of the sweetest human beings I’ve ever met.  She exudes kindness.


When it came time to tie the knot to the love of her life, Seth, the day couldn’t have been more perfect.  Autumn and Seth were giddy all day long.  What’s even more special… Autumn became the stepmom of Seth’s two sons.  During the ceremony, Autumn had vows written to the two boys.  I definitely teared up during that!!  It was a very emotional day and I just loved capturing all of the special moments of this NEW FAMILY!

Adding Another Addison https://hilarylacombephotography.com/blog/2018/7/adding-another-addison I have been dying to do a blog for years, but just never seemed to have the time.  However, I realize now how important it is to tell the stories of my amazing clients through photography as well as with my own words.  Pictures are worth a thousand words.  There's always a story behind them!

Meet Rachelle and Brent!

Adding Another Addison...  What a fitting title considering it is Rachelle's hashtag she uses when referencing her pregnancy journey.  I just love how catchy it is!  Rachelle was the winner of my maternity session giveaway!  She contacted me right away and told me about her vision for her session.  She wanted something different than everyone else.  With it being June, indoors was obviously a great choice for a pregnant woman!  She chose the Southern Hotel for her session.  I was super excited to shoot at a new location.

I arrived at the Southern Hotel a little earlier than them to scope out the place and pick out my ideal spots.  Everywhere I turned there was another awesome spot to shoot.  The artwork on the walls is exquisite and the decor is so modern/chic.  I just loved the vibe of the entire place!  

Rachelle and Brent arrived and we got started.  They were so loving and sweet to one another.  I so loved chatting with them as we moved about the hotel.  I asked them what they were naming their daughter, and they responded, "Brielle."  They said it's their names combined.  What's funny is my daughter's name is ours combined as well!  You can truly feel the love from these parents for this sweet baby girl who will be making her appearance in August!  I am so excited for them and this new journey they are about to take together!  I loved working with them and hope to capture some sweet memories of them as a family when baby Brielle arrives. :)
