When a friend who is an awesome photographer asks you to take her maternity pics you say yes! (Be sure to check out her work at www.brassandtwine.com) Especially when there’s a pretty round baby bump, warm fall colors and these two beautiful people. Baby June will be here any day and we all cant wait to meet her. She is already so loved and she will be so excited to know how cool her parents are! Here are some of my favs!
I’ve known Harley for a couple years now and we’ve had the privilege of working on many weddings together. Our goal; making our bride’s wedding day as perfect as possible! You see Harley works for a local wedding planner, Cassie with Southern Fete. Now the tables have turned and it’s Harley’s turn to be the bride, and what a gorgeous bride she’ll make! Since Harley has seen so many weddings she wanted something different for her own. Sooo in March we are heading to….wait for it…. MEXICO! YAY! A destination wedding is always a great choice. Since she’ll have an international flare for their wedding day she wanted something true to her southern roots for the engagement session. Harley’s dad is a local farmer and Cody works with him. How fitting that we shot in a southern plantation then afterwards in the cane fields that her family harvest. Harley wins the “fashionista” award! We were able to fit in 4 outfits in the two hour session. Aren’t they awesome! Here’s some of my favorites from the shoot.

Today marks the first day of fall. What better way to say goodbye to summer then a blog post from Mexico.
In May Michael and I had the privilege of traveling to Mexico to photograph Jenn and Luke’s wedding. It has been one of my highlights since starting Hannah Mulligan Photography. As much as we love to travel and as much as I love what I do; to be able to combine the two was something magical. Jennifer and Luke decided to take their family and closest friends to a resort in Cancun to have their wedding. For us to be involved in such a small, fun, intimate setting I felt more like a friend then a vendor. They were so warm and welcoming to both Michael and I. The wedding day was filled with some of our favorite things. First and foremost the BEACH, romance, music, fun, HEAT and LOVE! Talk about a laid back day. For all you brides who are looking for something different think about a destination wedding! I dont think you will be disappointed!
Erin + Blaine
These two celebrated their 9 year anniversary yesterday! Time sure does fly by when you’re having fun! While we were in Utah this summer we spent one morning watching the sun rise in the national park. When photographers travel you know there has to be time set aside for a photoshoot! Erin and Blaine shot my husband and I while I shot them. We spent the morning exploring and totally getting lost! Good thing it’s gorgeous there and even if we didn’t get to see the sun rise in the double arches we got to see beautiful scenery. When we finally arrived at the double arches we were so excited! Definitely worth all the hiking (barefooted I might add)! Getting lost in a place like this was the best thing that could have happened! That early morning hike was one of our favorites!
So congratulations to our friends and travel partners! Yall sure do make a great team!
Jasmine + Cory
Jasmine would pass by this privately owned historical home and always thought she would love to get married there. She finally stopped by one day and met the nice owners who said “come on in.” You never know if you dont ask. Of course they didn’t mind at all! Only in the south would strangers open up their homes to other strangers for a wedding. Jasmine had planned this sweet, intimate ceremony to take place on the front lawn under the oaks. It was a bright sunny day and then out of no where, in true Louisiana fashion, an afternoon downpour came. Talk about terrible timing. I was so nervous she would have been upset but Jasmine didn’t let it get her down! With their two daughters and about 10 of their closest family and friends they became Mr. and Mrs.
While we were in Mexico in May my sister and her family were there to celebrating their anniversary! What better gift then a family shoot. I love shooting my nephews; I mean come on; could they get any cuter? They are growing up so fast, Im seeing the importance of photographing each stage. Fisher is 4 years old and he already had lost a tooth. 1/2 way through the shoot he lost another tooth leaving him with that adorable gap at the bottom of his mouth. Shooting a family is very different my normal couple session. Kids definitely give you a run for your money. Michael had a bag of M&Ms and after every picture would reward the boys with their “treat”. Kinda like puppies. “Smile”…good boy. (mouth opens for M&M) It was a good little system. What I love about Lindsey is she always finds the PRETTIEST hotels anywhere she goes. Nizuc was absolutely stunning! I was so excited to photograph there. Happy 14th! Love yall!

When Jenn first contacted me about her destination wedding in Mexico I was beyond excited! Completely over the moon! My first international wedding at one of our favorite vacation spots! You can’t beat the ease of Mexico. Just a 3 hour plane ride and your seeing crystal waters! Jenn and Luke decided to do their engagement session a couple days before their wedding. I loved that idea since I got to do a photoshoot on the beach, explore the resort where they would be getting married, and Jenn and Luke got comfortable being in front of the camera! What a fun afternoon. Jenn asked me before we left what should she wear for the shoot. I love when my clients and I are on the same page! All I wanted was something that would flow in the breeze and thats exactly what I got. Jenn and Luke had a great chemistry not to mention how gorgeous she is!! They were willing to do anything for great pictures! I swear Jenn would have gone swimming in the ocean if I would have asked her to. Gotta love that attitude. Being with them for the engagement session made us so excited for their wedding. They treated us more like guests then a vendor. It was like watching our friends getting married. We couldn’t have asked for a better couple for our first international wedding experience! Their wedding will be hitting the blog very soon.

I was so excited to finally be able to shoot at the Houmas house! What a beautiful location. Brides, take notesMamye made such a pretty bride and I LOVED her flowers, as you can tell in the pictures. Not to mention cathedral veils always get me giddy! It was a hot summer day but Mayme was a trooper. Southern brides know what it takes to smile through the humidity. Her wedding will be hitting the blog soon. Until then here are some of my favorites from her bridals! Enjoy!
