Believe it or not, we made the decision to get married alone, with no witnesses present. Unfortunately, we didn’t realize the full impact that decision would have on our lives and the lives of our children until a couple of years later.

Thus, the love that we share, inspired by the lack of
our own wedding images to pass down to our children, was the catalyst
for Dark Roux Photography.
If our business is the gumbo, then love, emotion, and togetherness are our roux.

You and your loved ones are the spice that keeps us coming back for more, as we find
inspiration in the simplicity of laughter and love between our clients.

Hi! I'm Jamie

I grew up on the Bayou just north of New Orleans. Much of my summers as an adolescent were spent dodging alligators and snakes with my friends. There’s nothing like walking in your back yard and looking down to see a huge poisonous snake between your feet sunning itself. Oh.. I also have an extreme fear of snakes so my parents picked a great place for me to grow up, haha!

Well I love all things edible and drinkable. Now I can’t cook a bit, not even a little. Lucky for me I married one of the most amazing cooks in the world! One time I tried to be nice and make dinner for Heather, and that was the only time! She told me to grab a cold beer, go watch some tv on the couch, and that she’d let me know when dinner’s ready. It’s been that way for almost 10 years now and I would’t change it for the world.

I’m an ex- musician. I say “ex” because I don’t ever find myself with the time make any music. I love me some Heavy Metal but I’ll pretty much listen to anything that doesn’t suck. If it’s relaxing, I’m into it.

Besides that, my daughters are my biggest inspirations and love. Everything I do and everything I am is because of the smile I see on their faces. Heather is my best friend and we’re so blessed to have the most beautiful little girls and love for one and other!

Hi! I'm Heather

I thoroughly enjoy numbers and math, which is why I am horrible at writing and can’t properly form a paragraph.

Touching glitter makes me happy. I love to craft and make things with my hands, particularly food.

I go over the top with party planning for my daughters’ birthday party.

I have a very dry sense of humor, and very much enjoy watching stand-up specials on Netflix.

I always knew I didn’t want a “normal” 9-5 job, but I never knew what career I actually wanted to completely throw myself into until I fell in love with photography.

I probably change my hair color 4 times a year.
