Kristen Soileau Portraits | Baton Rouge Photographer, traveling to you bio picture
  • Louisiana soul with a West Coast mentality.

    Pure.
    I want black coffee paired with a dash of cinnamon. I love it natural. My knack for natural beauty in life goes hand in hand with my desire to capture your beauty as is. The way the day was in itself. How the sunlights streamed through your hair putting off a natural glow. The way you laugh with your eyes closed and grin spread wide. I want to highlight the beauty found in your scars and freckles. My job is to capture the essence of you and in that, I keep it simple and pure. You are enough.

    Passionate.
    I love what I do. Seriously. I get such an adrenaline rush from making sure timelines flow correctly. When there is an independent souled toddler running around without a care in the world. When the grandmother of the family gets herself out on the dance floor. Those moments..I love. They fuel my passion for my business as well as my relationship with my clients. I care more about you guys than I do about the perfect composition. I want to make sure you are cared for, loved, and relaxed before I begin my job photographing your day.

    Personal.
    I’m happy to say most of my clients are dear friends of mine. To share such an intimate time with someone, I can’t help but keep up with them. By the time the wedding day rolls around, we have enjoyed dinner or coffee together. We have laughed about favorite TV shows and nonsense happenings from day to day. I have cried with them during hard times and have held on to several when they have received the worst news. I take you with the joys and the utter lows of life. Above all, I care about you first.

Blase & Maggie | Engagements | New Orleans, LA

“Cities have the capability to at any moment

shift out of the familiar, even if you’ve lived in

one all your life.” -Kate Milford

The Big Easy never gets old to me. I didn’t grow up there but I’ve spent enough summers and weekends there to count for years. The energy, the food, the sounds-they are mesmerizing. Notice I didn’t mention the smells. The smells are quite horrific, but I won’t take you there.

It was a perfect day to adventure around the warehouse district of New Orleans. Over cast sky, cool temperatures, and a couple that looked like a million bucks. My hearts grows more and more for these two as their date gets closer.

I was thrilled she was able to show off this amazing dress without having to spend hundreds on it. It’s a perfect idea for sprucing up any shoot while saving money.

Jessie

There is something immensely liberating for myself when i’m given the opportunity to do whatever I want with such a fun-loving, care-free senior who has an amazing style. There is minimal pressure and maximal fun. She even requested I not edit her skin to the point of no pores. That, my friend, is raw beauty. Real confidence. A beautiful time.

Ashley + Joel | Wedding | Baton Rouge, LA

Clean white prep space and a beautiful first look- two of my favorite things about Ashley and Joel’s wedding day. Nothing make a photographer happier than a fresh white bathroom to photograph a bride in. I couldn’t have asked for a better space. The flooding light through the windows only highlighted Ashley’s joy for marrying her high school sweetheart. Ashley and Joel decided the day before to do the first look and I am so glad they did! They cried together then and they cried together while walking down the aisle. A father presenting his daughter as a bride to her groom is so special that even a first look can’t take away that joy and emotion. Break tradition, see each other before-you only get this day once.Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014Ashley & JoelKristen Soileau Portraits 2014

RJ & Kaitlin | Oklahoma Wedding

Oh what a happy day it was. Very rarely do you see a man love his lady as much as RJ loves Kaitlin. It’s beautiful to watch–raw, honest, and selfless. I’ve picked up on only being around them a few short times. Their southern peach themed wedding was too good to be true. Even the peaches on the cake were made of marshmallow…not that I snatched one or two. The colors, the light, the atmosphere all felt like a glorious dream. I’m thankful to have clients fly me out of state just to capture their day.

It means a lot, so for that I raise my glass and thank you.
