Beatriz + Josh

I am constantly looking for the happiness in the small and simple things.

I currently live in Southern, Louisiana with my husband Josh and little cat named Desmond. I am so happy to say that my husband photographs weddings with me. He is a true gem, and I am so blessed to do photography right along side him.

I have been a wedding, and family photographer in the greater New Orleans area for two years.  We love to travel and meet  new people along the way as well. Photographing has been a very rewarding journey of forming relationships with everyone we photograph.

My favorite photographs are the ones that people arent prepared for. The moments when I can step back and watch raw beauty unfold before me.  The still, intimate moment after the ceremony when the husband just holds his wife in his arms, and enjoys the moment.   The way a mother holds her babies, and strokes their hair. The way a father comforts his children. The way a couple hold each other with tenderness.  These real and honest moments is what makes me fall in love with what I do more and more each day.

It is always an honor.
