Kayla and Tim Engagement

Kayla and Tim picked Tara Marie Photography because of the many country-style sample pictures Kayla saw at the bridal show at the Victorian. I am truly a country girl, complete with the horses, miscellaneous farm animals, and living in the middle of nowhere, so country pictures really do prick my heart. On the other hand, there is something about the city that fascinates me. I lived for 2 years in an apartment in Baton Rouge while in school. The first year I HATED it. But then, after I began to get out and make some friends, I began to realize the perks of living in the city. The grocery store was only 5 minutes away, versus the current 45 minutes to Wal-Mart! I could walk to Izzo's Illegal Burrito, my all-time favorite place to eat in Baton Rouge. And my friends were only a short drive (or walk) away at all times.
Recently while driving through downtown Baton Rouge at 8 pm on a Friday, I realized that the city at night makes me think about all the people who are working to keep things rolling while the rest of us sleep- the nurses, factory workers, lawyers putting in extra hours, janitors cleaning up our messes, security guards, and the rest. It's neat to think about....

Back to country life, though- I thank Mrs. Trudy, who is Tessie's mom, for letting us use her barn in Pride, LA for these pictures. I got to pet one of her cows before the shoot!

Keep an eye out for Kayla's bridals at Oakley Plantation in St. Francisville, and their St. Francisville Hemingbough wedding this last Friday!
