Swamp Engagements – Jenna and Elijah

It’s been a while since we’ve been in the swamp and these swamp engagements we’re just what we needed, even though I almost died! Jenna and Elijah have one of the sweetest stories about how they met that we’ve ever heard. So they lived just behind each other goring up and never knew each other. Later they worked together and through some conversation they realized that they had been so close to each other all along and never knew, so they arranged a late night rendezvous in the woods between their houses and the rest is history 🙂

We went to the swamp on the north shore of lake Ponchatrain, just across from New Orleans, to get a different perspective of the area and to get away from some of the more typical spots. So here is where I almost died. We’re walking around in the swamp/woods and here I am wearing flip flops. For some reason I look down and there is a water moccasin, just two feet away from my two feet!!! The only reason I noticed it was because it’s mouth was open and I could see the pink of it’s mouth and the white of it’s fangs……

I hate snakes… I have a huge fear of all snakes, so needless to say I was shaking for the rest of the shoot, but we all made it though alive! These two are hilarious and I can’t wait to hang out with them again at their wedding!
