Engagement Photos at Stella Plantation | Taren & Wade

I can not wait for Taren and Wade's wedding at The Barn at Stella plantation! They were so much fun to photograph. Even the freezing temperatures and piercing wind gusts couldn't keep the smiles off of their faces. 
We started the session casually with a walk through the branches of the lazy tree. Wade told the story of their first date. We followed those images with a bit of a hike across the grounds through the overgrown brush to the magnificent moss covered oaks. They made for quite the backdrop. 10 out of 10, great session!

Audubon Park Elopement | Rae & Christian, New Orleans

Rae and Christian eloped at the Historic Park View Guest House surrounded by their closest friends and family.

 
 

After a bit of furniture rearranging, the Park View Guest House's first-floor parlor made for a beautiful, intimate backdrop for their short elopement ceremony. Beautifully written vows left the entire room looking for tissues. Once their ceremony was finished, the group posed for a couple quick, fun group photos and then I took the couple for a short walk near Audubon Park for a portrait session. The high July humidity didn't affect them one bit! Enjoy their images below, and leave some love in the comments for the couple!  

The Cannery New Orleans | Mid-City Wedding Venue Spotlight

The Cannery in Mid-City, New Orleans hosted one heck of a party for their 5-year anniversary. Check out a few of my favorite detail photos here then click the link to The Cannery to see the rest! 

 
 New Orleans Wedding Venue
 

Bee's Wedding and Event Design knocked it out of the park on the decor for the party. Great color palette, trendy seating areas, and killer floral/table combinations! 
I love The Cannery for their sleek, modern look, modular design, and giant bar. Also, it's pretty cool that they have a lighting system that can be customized to match and enhance any color palette. If you're looking for a wedding or reception venue outside of The French Quarter, with parking, and close proximity to the streetcar line, go tour The Cannery!

Algiers Courthouse Elopement | Mandy & John Elope on Holiday

Mandy and John joined us in New Orleans on holiday for their May elopement. 

 
 Algiers Courthouse Elopement
 

So, I'm never going on vacation again. From now on, it's holiday!
Mandy and John have known each other for years and their connection is unmistakable. It was an absolute pleasure to be around them both. John mentioned that their timing throughout the years was never quite right. Whether it was other relationships, jobs, or life, it was always something. But their patience paid off when they both reconnected and found their happiness together.
Enjoy a few of the highlights from their 1-hour elopement at the Algiers Courthouse in New Orleans, La. 
Cheers!

Audubon Tree of Life Wedding

This wedding was nothing short of incredible. It was planned and designed by the amazingly efficient and organized team at Elyse Jennings Weddings (planning) and pulled off by the great team of New Orleans wedding vendors they assembled.

There were many well thought out details and personal touches throughout this wedding day. A few of my favorites were the gorgeous wooden pews set up under the Audubon Tree of Life during their ceremony, the Phish (band) bobble heads setup on their king cake, and the most awesome gender reveal during the cake cutting.
Scroll down for the images of that.
Like for real.
The black and white reaction shot is one of my most favorite wedding candids I've ever captured.
