My husband and I chose to have our wedding in Louisiana, where he was born and raised. I am originally from Ohio and we were living in Oklahoma at the time of our wedding. Needless to say, it was a destination wedding for the majority of our guests, including our photographer! Although there are some fantastic photographers in the Baton Rouge area, we wanted to work with Serendipity Photography because of the amazing work Gerri and her team did at my sister’s wedding a few years prior. It is very important to have vendors at your wedding that you can trust and Serendipity Photography is the epitome of this! We did not offer much in the way of guidance for what types of photos we were looking for but Gerri’s creative eye captured the most beautiful moments and we received more than we could have ever imagined! The entire process of selecting a package, having Gerri and Courtney come to Louisiana (at a site they had never seen before), choosing proofs and everything else involved with wedding photography was incredibly seemless and relaxed, which is exactly what this destination bride needed! The entire event was a blur and we are very grateful to have the beautiful memories forever in our hearts because of Gerri’s photos. Serendipity Photography took all the worry out of our day and left us with stunning memories of our wedding!

What are pictures? To me, they are dimples in the hands and elbows that will too soon fade. Pictures are baby teeth that will be gone quicker than I can blink. Pictures are the story of our lives together. They are the dreams we dream and the memories we have made. The memories we make with our children are particularly special to us because our babies may not be with us as long as we would like. They have cystic fibrosis, a life shortening genetic disease. I contacted Serendipity Photography about doing our family photos during a particularly difficult time in my children”s health. Gerri offered to do our session for free and offered a credit toward prints! The gift she gave our family is appreciated more than anyone could imagine. Gerri captured just how much my daughter loves her daddy, and how much my little boy loves a good time. My 4 year old son who dreads the typical studio session even said, “Mommy, those pictures were fun!” Serendipity Photography gave our family precious memories to last a lifetime! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Gerri is absolutely amazing, Lady loves her as much as we do. We had an instant connection with Gerri. She was so much more than just a person pointing a camera at us. She portrays a sense of caring to whatever she is photographing so the emotion she captures is always real.

I was referred to Gerri Leonard at Serendipity Photography when I was pregnant with my daughter. After I had her, I set up a day and time to do some newborn shots. When I walked into Gerri’s home, I was immediately put at ease and as I watched her work, I was in awe of her passion and dedication to getting great pictures of our newest addition for us. These first pictures of Bella are some of my most treasured.
My daughter is now 3 and Gerri has captured all of her major milestones. Her patience, creativity, and love for what she does are exemplified in every photo.
Rather than a pose, she captures moments. These “moments” of my daughter are displayed throughout my house and are a constant reminder of why I am so glad our paths crossed. When you meet Gerri, you love Gerri. It’s that simple. And when you see the images she captures, you love her even more. Selecting Serendipity Photography to capture the images of my daughter as she grows is something I will always be grateful for.
Gerri is a fabulous photographer! Our experience exceeded all of our expectations. Gerri made us feel comfortable, in a professional but relaxed way. Gerri is a warm person who shows a genuine passion for her work. Along with taking photos, she also helped me design a collage for my great room to display the photos. I love the float wraps. We look forward to working with her again to capture future memories.

Gerri and her team at Serendipity did a remarkable job at capturing the planned and candid moments on our wedding day. We were very impressed with both our engagement and wedding pictures. Not only did our pictures turn out great, but the customer service was second to none. Gerri and her team supported us through the entire process. Gerri was quick to respond to all e-mails and phone calls, provided an itinerary for the entire wedding day, and even provided valuable advice when it came time to order our wedding album. It was obvious through the end product that they listened to all of our wants and needs. The serendipity team acted professionally, and was very fun to work with. We could not be more pleased with the end product and service we received!
