David & Ann Rene – Shreveport, Louisiana Wedding Photographers

David & Ann Rene were married at the Cathedral of St. John Berchmans with a reception at 601 Spring. These two promised us lots of dancing at their reception, and they delivered! I think these two spent a majority of the night on the stage with Windstorm!

Walkabout – Thailand Edition

We visited Thailand in April 2017, and I’m ashamedly just now sharing our photos! Our personal photos always get pushed to the back burner, but I’m resolving to do better this year. It’s just as important to me that we have beautiful printed photos as our clients.

We chose April for a visit to Thailand for a few reasons…first, it was when we could fit the trip into our busy schedule. Second, it was shoulder season which is always helpful to the pocketbook. And, lastly, we wanted to see how the Thai people celebrated Songkran, their New Year’s Festival!  For the majority of our trip, we stayed at the Chatrium Hotel Riverside in Bangkok.  We also hired a private tour guide and private transportation from Your Thai Guide.  We had a great time with Nina as our guide!  It was wonderful having a knowledgeable guide to explain what we were seeing…and even better to have an air conditioned van waiting on us!  (In case you didn’t know, it gets HOT in Thailand!)  We arrived early on our first day.  Having experienced jet lag numerous times, we knew it wouldn’t benefit us to lounge around the hotel.  If we did, we’d be asleep and our schedules would be off.  Instead, we opted to start our trip with an afternoon tour to keep us up.

For our first tour, we visited Wat Trimitr (home of the world’s largest gold Buddha image), walked through Chinatown, and experienced Songkran…where we got soaking wet!

While at the temple, Sam and I received a blessing from a monk…

CS7A5869CS7A5872CS7A5882CS7A5885CS7A5900CS7A5910

Stinky fruit…this stuff was everywhere!

CS7A5915CS7A5923CS7A5928CS7A5934CS7A5945CS7A5948CS7A5950

As I said earlier, the Thai people celebrate Songkran, their New Year Festival, in April.  Their celebration includes LOTS and LOTS of water!  We walked down a particular area where everyone had water guns.  Some of those water guns contained iced water…brrr!

CS7A5960CS7A5977CS7A5998CS7A6000CS7A6006CS7A6011

We were really tired by the time we finished watching the Songkran celebration, so we headed back to our hotel for rest.  On the next day, we boarded our van and headed to Ayutthaya,

During our visit to Ayutthaya, we saw the Buddha in the tree…

This is the national flower of Thailand, ratchaphruek or golden shower tree.CS7A6346

We also visited Wat Chaiwatthanaram…

CS7A6374CS7A6386CS7A6401CS7A6495CS7A6509

After arriving back in Bangkok after visiting Ayutthaya, we visited the Chatuchak Market which is their big weekend market.
CS7A6526CS7A6537CS7A6539

 

That evening, we boarded the Chayo Princess for an evening river cruise…CS7A6561CS7A6584

 

For our next day in Bangkok, we had a busy itinerary.  Our first stop was the Grand Palace where the Temple of the Emerald Buddha can be visited.  These first two photos show wall art near our parking space.  We giggled…CS7A6606CS7A6615CS7A6676CS7A6677CS7A6678CS7A6684CS7A6700CS7A6709CS7A6712CS7A6716CS7A6755CS7A6769CS7A6773CS7A6774CS7A6779CS7A6785CS7A6787CS7A6798CS7A6812CS7A6879CS7A6923

 

After the Grand Palace tour, we headed to Wat PhoCS7A6938CS7A6940

 

Wat Pho is known for its massage school.  During our tour, there were drawings and references to the human body…CS7A6947CS7A6953CS7A6958

 

One of the coolest Buddhas we saw was at the Temple of the Reclining Buddha.  Did you know there are Buddhas for each day of the week?  The reclining Buddha is for those born on a Tuesday…like Kevin.  (The Buddha above is for those born on Saturday!)CS7A6963CS7A6964CS7A6989

 

This is the Buddha for those born on a Wednesday evening…like me!CS7A7005

 

Following Wat Pho, we headed to the Golden Mount.CS7A7050CS7A7053CS7A7080CS7A7092CS7A7119

 

This is where you can see the Buddhas of the week…CS7A7135CS7A7179CS7A7237

 

We ended this travel day at the Jim Thompson House.  Jim Thompson was an American who started the silk industry in Thailand.  He mysteriously disappeared while in Malaysia in 1967.  His house in Bangkok is now a museum housing his art collection.CS7A7257CS7A7266

 

I think our next travel day was Kevin’s favorite.  We visited the Kanchanaburi region of Thailand.  We started at the Bridge over River Kwai…
CS7A7309CS7A7330CS7A7335

 

They actually let you stand on the bridge as the train passes.  Thankfully, there were small step out areas to get out of the way.CS7A7358CS7A7379CS7A7452

 

Following the bridge, we headed to an elephant sanctuary.  We were running short on time, so we didn’t have time to walk with them down to the water for a bath.  Instead, we fed them watermelon which they were happy to receive!CS7A7473CS7A7477CS7A7481CS7A7566

 

After our visit with the elephants, we headed to Krasae Cave where we saw another part of the railroad tracks that run over the River Kwai.
CS7A7617CS7A7622CS7A7641CS7A7684

 

The next morning, we woke up and headed to the airport for our visit to Phuket!CS7A7778CS7A7797

 

Photos such as this one below of the recently deceased king of Thailand were everywhere.  King Bhumibol Adulyadej seemed to have been an amazing man.  All of the Thai we encountered had wonderful things to say about him.  Thailand was in a year of mourning for his passing during our visit.

 

CS7A7800

 

Kevin and I left the rest of our group the next day to take a tour with John Gray’s Sea Canoes where we visited caves and hongs.  We went out on a large boat, but we boarded sea canoes to explore the caves and hongs.  We had to fit in some pretty tight places on this tour.  There’s a video of just how tight it was on our personal instagram (@nicolehberg and @kevkberg).CS7A7864CS7A7870CS7A7878CS7A7888CS7A7923CS7A7930CS7A7990

 

This is an example of the tight spaces…we had lay flat on our backs in our sea canoe to fit through.CS7A8065CS7A8101CS7A8194CS7A8295CS7A8374CS7A8383CS7A8479CS7A8651

 

The next day, we explored a bit more of Phuket before heading back to Bangkok to finish our trip.

CS7A8772

 

On our final day in Thailand, we started at the Train Market (also known as the Folding Umbrella Market).  This place was insane!  There were vendors under umbrellas VERY close to the train tracks.  When the train blew its horn to indicate it was coming, the vendors folded back their umbrellas and pulled a few baskets out of the way to allow the train to pass.  Immediately after the train passed, they unfolded their umbrellas and got back to business.CS7A8812CS7A8819CS7A8838CS7A8862CS7A8871CS7A8891CS7A8914

 

Following the train market, we headed to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market where we boarded a boat to go shopping!  We ended up buying a few souvenirs, including some artwork!CS7A8986CS7A9117CS7A9157CS7A9173

 

We finished the day at a Tiger Sanctuary where we fed young tigers!  We also got photos with a medium size tiger (medium being relative because they were still quite large!).CS7A9271CS7A9285CS7A9301CS7A9310CS7A9453

And that was our trip to Thailand!  Since our Thailand visit, we’ve also traveled to New Mexico and Canada, so expect blogs on those locations soon!  And we’re already planning our next international destination…

Hannah & Paige – Alexandria, Louisiana Wedding Photographers

New Year’s Eve weddings are our new favorite thing. For the second year in a row, Nicole and I have celebrated the New Year camera in hand photographing a newly married couple celebrating with family and friends! Hannah and Paige were married at the beautiful Inglewood Plantation where they celebrated by having an epic dance party with not one, not two, but THREE bands!!! We were so happy to have been able to capture the love between these two throughout their rehearsal dinner and wedding day. It was so nice to hear the family give such heartfelt and loving toasts at the rehearsal dinner, but the coolest part was that all the guests at the rehearsal dinner turned their place cards over and wrote a wish for the couple to be placed in the bonfire. That was a first for us! The rehearsal dinner tent was, thankfully, heated given the crazy winter temperatures we’re experiencing. The decor by Mandy Cathey Weddings was superb for both the rehearsal and the wedding day. We loved that they changed up the color schemes for each event!

For the wedding day, Hannah and Paige had planned to say their vows underneath the marriage oaks. Given the freezing temperature, the couple opted to move the ceremony inside for sake of their guests. Hannah and Paige braved the chilly weather for a portrait underneath the marriage oaks, though! Following the ceremony, the couple and their guests second lined their way into the reception tent where the dance party began! When the clock struck midnight, everyone celebrated beneath confetti bombs. Guess what happened next? A huge group hug commenced on the dance floor. It was a beautiful moment of love and friendship that we hope carries on into the New Year for everyone.
