Sometimes I get crazy, random ideas. Usually no one is around me when I get these crazy ideas, however it just so happened that a couple days before I had this idea Brittany emailed me about scheduling an engagement session. Then it hit me. I had been planning on going to the Louisiana Hot Air Balloon Championship Festival in Gonzales for about a month. Now, a normal person would go and look at the pretty balloons and bring their friends and family out for a fun evening of family adventure. I wanted to photograph an engagement session there. Luckily Brittany was just as excited about my crazy idea as I was!!! So we braved the heat, crowds of families and crazy balloons that wouldn’t light up until after I had put my camera down just so we could get some epic engagement pictures… at the balloon festival. I have SO many more that I can’t wait to share, but here is one of my favourites :) Aak!!!

Also, if you guys are in Gonzales (or feel live Driving down from New Orleans or Baton Rouge!) you should totally check it out! There are loads more events tomorrow. Here is a link to their Facebook page and their website, which has a full schedule of events. The balloon glow is AWESOME!!!
