Brandi + Patrick // Married

October 18th was quite the glorious day in New Orleans, with brilliant sunshine and a much needed break from the heat.  It was also a very special day for Brandi and Patrick, marking two years since she received flowers from a very special secret admirer, and one year from the day that admirer asked her to be his wife!  Choosing New Orleans for their destination wedding on a whim proved to be a very good decision and one that left these first time visitors to the city totally smitten with it’s old world charm, iron lace balconies and everything else it has been offering visitors for 300 years now.

Tony performed the heartfelt ceremony, proving that a wedding doesn’t have to be large to be mighty.  Happy tears flowed freely and the entire guest list, in complete color coordinated attire, helped complete the celebration with a joyous, traditional New Orleans second line!New Orleans Elopement First LookNew Orleans ElopementNew Orleans ElopementNew Orleans ElopementNew Orleans ElopementNew Orleans ElopementNew Orleans ElopementNew Orleans ElopementNew Orleans ElopementFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelFrench Quarter Wedding ChapelNew Orleans Second LineNew Orleans Second LineNew Orleans Second LineNew Orleans Second LineNew Orleans Second LineNew Orleans Second LineNew Orleans Second LineNew Orleans ElopementThe party headed off to dinner, but we met up with them later that evening, when they literally sealed the deal in ink at Electric Ladyland Tattoo.  We left the happy couple, sporting their new Mr. + Mrs. tattoos, wishing them a lifetime of love and happiness!  We are fairly certain that although this was their first trip to New Orleans, it certainly will not be their last!  Congratulations guys!!  We had a blast with you!!

Spring/Summer 2018 Family Wrap-up

While I know it’s not “technically” fall, for all intents and purposes summer has come to an end.  Last weekend we celebrated Labor Day and its time to put away the white pants and shoes.  The kids are back in school, I’ve put up my fall wreath and I’m drinking a pumpkin spiced latte while I’m working today … so, yeah, its fall, y’all!!  We had a really good spring and summer and we are in love with so many of the beautiful family shoots we were able to do for our families.  We met some really sweet, fun families and we were able to create some fantastic heirloom pieces for them.  We love it when a client thinks outside the box and asks for something different, like a non-standard size print or a wall cluster, and we are able to work together to design something unique, just for them!  We were really big into square prints this year, mainly because they group really nicely on the wall.  Soooo, believe it or not, if you are thinking about a family session for the fall, and especially if you might want to do something for holiday cards, its time to get on our books.  October is filling up fast, but we do have a few spots left for mid-October and early November.  New Orleans Family Photography featuring Audubon Park and the French QuarterNew Orleans Family Photography in Audubon ParkGumbel Fountain at Audubon Park by New Orleans Family PhotographersNew Orleans Family Photography at Audubon ParkNew Orleans Family Photography at Laurence SquareNew Orleans Family Photography at Loungue Vue House and Gardens plus the Audubon Park CarouselChildren at the Audubon Park Lagoon by New Orleans Family PhotographersNew Orleans Family Photography at home and in Audubon ParkMetairie Family Photography in the family's homeNew Orleans City Park wild flowers by New Orleans Family PhotographersThree generations by New Orleans Family PhotographersIn home family portraits by New Orleans Family PhotographersWe offer family sessions Sunday through Thursday and occasionally Friday and Saturday depending on our wedding schedule at any location of your choosing.  Some of the locations featured here are Audubon Park, City Park, the New Orleans French Quarter, Longue Vue House and Gardens, and the family’s own home.  For more information about our family sessions, follow the Lifestyle link on our website or fill out our form here for more information:
