Courtney & Justin | Engagements | State Capitol Gardens | Baton Rouge, LA

Last weekend, I met my friend Courtney & her fiance, Justin, in downtown Baton Rouge. There is an area called the gardens near our state capitol that is just beautiful. I did a maternity shoot there not too long ago, and couldn't wait to do an engagement or bridal shoot there soon. I got my opportunity with Courtney & Justin, who are engaged to be married on October 22nd.

I had so much fun with them, and think this was my favorite session to date!

Courtney really wanted a few shots by the fountains downtown, because it's where they got engaged. Unfortunately, when we headed over there, the fountains weren't on! Bummer! Oh-well! Gives me an excuse to take pics of them again soon! ;)

Here are a few of my favorites. Aren't they a stunning couple?!


This was the bride's idea. I have a feeling lots of people were googling this verse after we left! Haha! It says, "He who finds a wife finds what is good & has found favor with the Lord." :) 

Such a beautiful couple! So happy for them!


  1. Melissa! These are GREAT! You just keep getting better and better. I would totally hire you. :)

    You must have had a really good teacher haha.
