Trisha + Jared in New Orleans

 

New Orleans is the kind of place that gets under your skin and settles down deep in your soul. When people visit, they tend to fall in love with the city and it’s big easy ways, they let their hair down a bit, and start to fall a little more in love with each other. Or maybe they just slow down because of all that heat and humidity and when they do, they start to remember why they fell in love in the first place. It doesn’t matter why … all that really matters is that spending time with each other in one of the most romantic cities in the US can cast quite a magical spell! Just ask Trisha and Jared, who recently celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary in the Big Easy (and their first vacation sans kids in quite a while!) To commemorate their visit, they scheduled a family vacation photoshoot in the French Quarter. We had a blast with this lively pair as we meandered the streets of the Vieux Carre, chatting and hearing about their back home adventures and listening to the exciting things they had planned for their upcoming week! We captured their fun-loving and creative personalities and their love for one another, all with a 300 year old city as the backdrop. Happy Anniversary, guys … now you, too, know what it means, to miss New Orleans!

Family Session // The Nelsons

We first met the Nelsons in 2013, when we photographed their wedding. Since that time, we have had the wonderful privilege of photographing their beautiful family three additional times. It is truly an honor and privilege when a family continues to place their trust in us time and again to document their family. It is even a bigger honor when the Dad is a photographer himself! When we first started photographing their family, their little one was just learning to walk and she zoomed so much I would call her “the blur”! We are happy to say that the blur has slowed down and is even happy to give us a few smiles these days!! We are pretty much in love with this session, as it is a bit of a departure from the light we usually expect on a morning park session. The session was scheduled for a time when New Orleans was being inundated with a succession of super rainy days. In order to beat the rain, we moved the session up a day and shot immediately after sunrise. Given the rainy atmosphere, when we arrived it was still rather foggy, which lends a beautiful, ethereal quality to the images. That, in conjunction with the family’s choice of color pallette, looking at the sessions reminds me of a Monet painting.

The final image is a three generation shot that we were delighted to capture for the second time for this family! What a wonderful tradition to recreate the same image time and again, to really capture the changes in your family over time.

Sarah + Billy // Married

Sometimes, all it takes is a little wink and divine intervention and the next thing you know, you’re walking down the aisle!  Sarah and Billy were both about to throw in the towel on online dating when she winked at him on St. Patrick’s day, and he winked back.  Maybe it was the luck o’ the Irish, or intervention on a higher level, but whatever it was, it was clearly magical!  Once they met they instantly clicked and Sarah, a Texas Aggie with a knack for planning, admits that she did not need to call on her “emergency out” for their first date!! Since that fateful first date, they have continued to grow as a couple and family and last month they were married in a beautiful courtyard ceremony at Hotel Mazarin in the New Orleans French Quarter.  After the wedding, true to New Orleans tradition, they did a second line around the courtyard then led their guests into the reception.  Everyone had a great time dining and dancing, but the whole party really kicked up a notch when the Texas two-steppin’ began! Congratulations Sarah and Billy!  Wishing you many, many years of happiness!
