Here are a few from Erin's Bridal Session the other day in New Orleans. I am so glad she opted for some cemetery shots. The sky couldn't have been more perfect to set the tone. It started to rain near the end of the session and I never saw a bride run so fast!
For those of you who do not know, Vanessa started working for me as my assistant and studio manager when she was just 16 years old. Well, the time has come around 7 years later for Vanessa to get married this coming May at House of Blues in New Orleans. The atmosphere in The Foundation Room was an awesome setting for her session. We also ventured out and found a cool, abandoned train along the river.
Jenny got married a couple of years ago and decided to come to me and have a better-late-than-never bridal session. She did not want any traditional images which was way ok by me! Even though she had'nt worn the dress in about 2.5 years, it fit her perfectly! An old sofa on the side of the road made for a perfect prop. I loved the sofa image so much I ordered a 30x40 canvas to go on my studio wall. Special thanks to Jenny's sister Anna who made a great assistant.
The other day's bridal session with Cari wasnt the usual. She wanted something different and requested to have a cemetery as a backdrop for some of the photos. I didnt realize that most New Orleans cemeteries close early so we had to sort of sneak in one particular cemetery. Thankfully, noone saw us so we got some dynamite images that were out of the ordinary per the brides request. Cari's wedding will take place at Vintage Court on June 19, 2009. The only reason I am posting these early is because Cari made her fiance Zac promise not to look at the website.
This is my first post on my newest blog, so I am going to re-post just a few of these images from Sara's formal session recently at Fountainbleu State Park. The wedding is this Friday night in the French Quarter.
