Hi, we're the Lermas!

We are a husband + wife photography team, focused on all things weddings, to lifestyle documentation and events. Carlos started out on this journey, originally as a graphics designer, who grew tired of editing other people's images and decided to start creating his own photos. That hobby quickly turned into a passion, and we soon found ourselves diving into weddings, then onto exploring other scopes of photography - TOGETHER! We both are originally from Texas, (Houston + Austin), but met each other in Lafayette, got married here, and fell in love with the cajun culture, so we never left!

We realized how satisfying it was to provide our clients with genuine, heartfelt, captured moments. When memories are on the line, it's humbling to be trusted with such a responsibility. We know that most of those opportunities are only going to happen once, so we strive to focus on those precious moments as they unfold. You get the good stuff!

Another major part of our lives are our 2, energetic little boys, Ashton and Cohen. You'll see them from time to time on our social platforms, if we can get them to stand still long enough! Our house is never quiet ... but giggles and pretend playing makes it all worth it! Oh ya, we can't forget about our first baby.. Tucker, a Beagle-Shihtzu. We're definitely a house full of animal lovers, so you can always count us in, to include your pets in a photo shoot!

It's absolutely worth while to mention that we love coffee! We love it so much, we bought a coffee shop in Opelousas (Java Square) and continue to educate others on the beauty of this wonderful bean! Stop by some time! You'll love it!

Lafayette Photographers Carlos & Ashley Lerma



“"It's rare to tell a photographer your vision and not only do they capture it but improve on it in ways you never imagined! The engagement pictures that Carlos and Ashley took have been envied by everyone who sees them. They have a great eye for locations and developing a theme. It is reassuring to work with someone whose skill and knowledge you can trust to make the best decision. You won't be disappointed!"”
