NEW ORLEANS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS // Emy + Matt Engaged

This is another session that I love from the beautiful area of Downtown Covington.  Matt and Emy could not have picked a more beautiful day.  Their wedding day is not that far away, March 4, 2017 at Maison Lafitte in Mandeville. Matt was talking about  he and Emy jumping into the river for the last shot, but fortunately they had dinner plans right after..too bad..I would have loved that!  Ok, maybe after the wedding we can do that...right Matt?

 

NEW ORLEANS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERs // Dawn + Daryl's Engagement Session

When I first met Dawn and Daryl to discuss photographing their engagement session and wedding day,  I knew this was not going to be a "typical" photo shoot.  For starters, Daryl relayed to me that he was a member of the 610 Stompers and Dawn was a member of the 610 Splits.   Being from New Orleans, I knew all about the Stompers and the Splits so I couldn't wait to shoot this session!  A little history on the Stompers, they were formed in 2009 and have performed in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade twice and the Kentucky Derby parade once as well as numerous Mardi Gras parades and charity events around the city and surrounding areas.  The Stompers have grown to nearly 200 members and come from all walks of life.  For more information about the 610 Stompers and the 610 Splits, visit their website.  

 The Fly in Audubon Park was the perfect setting for shooting their engagement session.  I was excited to see the Stompers "bread truck" parked at the riverfront; needless to say this unique truck was the perfect prop for these two! 

Daryl has been a Stomper for 3 years and Dawn, a member of the Splits for 2 years.  This crazy couple have been together for 9 years.   

Their wedding is set to take place at Stella Plantation on October 14, 2017,  which is located in Braithwaite, Louisiana.                                                                                                                                                                                                     

NEW ORLEANS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS // Lynne + Jesus Wedding Day

Bridal Prep Location:  The Fairfax House The ceremony took place at the bride's parents home in Franklin, Louisiana right on Bayou Teche.  We were way down on the bayou, quite a distance from Lynne and Jesus' current residence in Los Angeles, California.  The setting could not have been more beautiful.  Being on the bayou, we did encounter high heat, humidity and mosquitos that were straight out of Jurassic Park!  Nothing could take away from the beauty that encompassed us as the day progressed.  The sugar cane fields and the water way that surrounded us made it a wedding photographer's dream and I cannot thank Lynne and Jesus enough for being willing to push the creative envelope with me, whilst coating ourselves with Off bug spray and continually wiping sweat off of their brows :)  This is truly a wedding that I will never forget!
