The rules are simple: Post a wedding portrait of you and your bride or groom that proves that you are not happy with your portraits, and explain why you are not happy with them. All entrants must be in by May 30th, 2017. Entries must be submitted on our Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/dlportraitstudios. If there are any questions please email us at dlphotostudios@darklightphotostudios.com or call us at 318-503-2147.

Bridal Beginnings Follow Up


We had a blast at the Bridal Beginnings event this past Sunday in West Monroe. We got to talk to so many amazing brides and grooms. Those that came to see us were able to take  a fun, goofy selfie with our shiny backdrop, check out our products, sign up for our newsletter and schedule consultation appointments. We also gave away some prizes. Congratulations to our 6 winners, Tameka S., Emily R., Brianna H., Janesia W., Brooke & Victor, & Dana R. We can’t wait to work with you guys and we are so happy to have met you.

Also thank you to everyone who scheduled a consultation! We are definitely looking forward to sitting down and talking with you more about your wedding.

We also met some awesome local vendors and will be working with them in various ways. We are super excited to be making new friends, meeting new people and celebrating love with couples all around Louisiana and the surrounding states.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and talked with us. You guys rock!

Newly engaged?

“Engagement season” as we call it in the engagement/wedding photography world is here. More people get engaged around the holidays and until Feb 14th then any other time of year.

So, for all of you out there that have recently gained a fiance, congratulations, its time to start planning! Between the time you become engaged until the day of your wedding, there will be a million things to plan, questions asked and to ask, pictures to take and decisions to make.

Now, where do you start? How about engagement pictures! This is a great way to announce your engagement to your friends and families, as well as start preparing for the wedding. Having engagement pictures taken will give you images for your save the date cards, your invitations perhaps and images to use at the reception. It also gives you a chance to try out a photographer and see if that’s who you want to use for your wedding.

We are making your engagement even better by giving away a free engagement session on Facebook in the month of February. Just go to our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/darklightphotostudios and follow the rules to enter. Good Luck!


We love engagement sessions and encourage couples to not wait until the last minute to get them taken. Call or email us now to book your engagement session!!

Our 2015 Facebook Winners!

As some of you know, we started a monthly giveaway on Facebook last year. For 12 months, we gave away baskets, gift cards, photo shoots and other items to people who entered. We had 12 amazing winners and everyone had a fun time.

We want to say Thank You to everyone who participated and congratulations to everyone who won! We had winners from multiple places in Louisiana, as well as Texas & Oklahoma and we really enjoyed being able to get to know some of them.

This year we have revamped the giveaway, requiring a bit of participation on your part to be entered. However, the prizes are still fun and its still easy to enter. I will post a blog about the new program soon.

Lover’s Basket Winner Kristen

If you have been on our Facebook Page you should might have noticed that every month we do a giveaway. Sometimes it’s a basket other times it’s a free portrait session.
Our giveaway is called 12 Months of Giveaway’s and the first giveaway began at the beginning of the year, with the name drawn at the end of the month. Our January winner was Kristen who had won our Lover’s Basket. This basket contained many goodies for her and her significant other, Mike. One of the prizes in there was a gift certificate for a portrait session and she decided to have his son photographed. Mike’s son is a character. He was great and fun to photograph and we found out he plays baseball. One of the photographs we got to take was to make it look similar to Mike’s photograph when he played baseball as a child. After our session we met up with Kristen and she wanted us to create an album as a Father’s Day gift for Mike. We hope that they can enjoy these portraits for years to come.
