Maison Lafitte Engagement | Brandi & Slate | Mandeville, LA

The quaint town of Mandeville, Louisiana, offers a picturesque backdrop for love to blossom! I can’t wait to share this magical engagement session that unfolded against the stunning landscapes of Maison Lafitte and Fontainebleau State Park

Maison Lafitte: A Historic Haven

Firstly, our session began at Maison Lafitte, a historic venue that exudes timeless charm. Nestled in the heart of Mandeville, this historic home boasts beautiful architecture, lush gardens, and a sense of history that adds a unique touch to any photoshoot.

Our time together started with Brandi and Slate strolling hand in hand through the well-manicured lawn. The soft, golden light of the late afternoon sun enveloped the scene with a warm and romantic ambiance. Obviously I adored capturing their candid moments as the couple shared laughter and snuggles.

Fontainebleau State Park: Nature’s Canvas

From the historic charm of Maison Lafitte, our time together took us to the natural beauty of Fontainebleau State Park. Just a short drive away, this state park offers a diverse landscape that includes majestic oaks and breathtaking lakefront views.

Together we ventured into the heart of Fontainebleau State Park. Here the natural surroundings provided an enchanting location for their engagement photos. Brandi and Slate were naturals against the backdrop of moss-draped trees, creating dreamy images that convey a sense of timeless romance.

The Lakefront: A Romantic Finale

Finally, to conclude their enchanting engagement session, we headed to the park’s lakefront area. Here, the calming waters of Lake Pontchartrain provided a tranquil setting for the final moments of the shoot. I posed Brandi and Slate snuggled together against the backdrop of the calm lake. A gentle breeze swirled through the air, adding a touch of movement to the images and enhancing the overall sense of romance.

This engagement session at Maison Lafitte and Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville, Louisiana is a showcase of love and the beauty of nature. Through my lens, Brandi and Slate’s engagement journey is immortalized in a collection of images. Together, they tell a story of romance, connection, and the timeless allure of Louisiana’s picturesque landscapes.
