Venue: Nottoway Plantation

Nottoway Plantation is one of my favorite venues to photograph brides. From the pristine grounds to the formal white room, the property is well maintained and well managed. I’ve never been disappointed when a client request Nottoway as their venue of choice. Actually, I secretly hope that the venue fits the client’s theme because there’s so many different ways to shoot on the property. Of course, the property’s hidden gem is its grand white room! Yes, people from all of the world swoon over this beautifully designed room and I’m no different. The white ball room is so perfect for photography due to it’s white reflective walls and floors. In addition, there’s no bad angle as every single square foot of the space is beautiful. Nottoway Plantation is hands down one of my most favorite venues in the Baton Rouge area. If you’re a history buff like myself, visit them as they host tour every day of the week, every hour on the hour.
When I met with Taloria for our in person consultation, she and I had an instant connection. She was sweet with a dose of sass, naturally beautiful, and knew exactly who she was as a woman. I’m often told that my brides have something in common. I completely agree as I genuinely try to work with clients who I naturally bond with which usually ends up being women who are similar to me. Southern Amore’ is not just a name, it’s a person, a feeling, a vibe that exist naturally at the core of a person’s being. Southern Amore’ represents the love most of us southerners have for each other, the chic and sassy ways about us, and the freedom of being no one other than yourself. Taloria exuded all of this and during our 45mins or so of meeting, I knew she was a #SASBRIDE.
I was over the moon when she decided to do a formal bridal session because as you all know, bridals are my favorites!!! Guess what else? Taloria’s wedding was being held at none other than, wait for it, NOTTOWAY!! Yes, not only were her bridals going to be at one of my favorite locations, but also her actual wedding. Talk about meant to be, lol. So we scheduled everything and got to work.
Please help me congratulate the beautiful, inside and out, Mrs. Bringier! The couple wed on September 16, 2017.
