Abby and Calvin celebrated 5 years together in August of 2021. They spent months planning their dream getaway to New Orleans for all the amazing food, museum and sweet little shops in the French Quarter. But the Oklahoma natives had to reschedule their multiple times because of Hurricane Ida, power outages that ravaged the city, and then to accommodate booking availability at their resort. In all my communication with Abby before the shoot, I could tell how disappointed she was all of their plans kept getting pushed back - but then a small miracle occurred, the stars aligned and I got to meet them in New Orleans!

These two are such a gem! I was blessed to spend some extra time with them on the trip and hear sweet stories about their 6 month engagement (what!!!), Calvin's seminary journey (which is why they were so excited to take photos in front of the cathedral!!), and Abby's transition to full time photography with her mother. I loved every second of getting to know these two.

In her email response to their gallery she said "I love how much our photos capture the love, joy, and fun Calvin and I share with each other. And the light and airy style looks so romantic and dreamy :) Taking these photos with you was one of the most memorable and enjoyable parts of our 5th anniversary trip :)".
