New Orlean Wedding Photography: Nicole + Zachary

Last weekend in New Orleans was such a blast!

We had a beautiful backdrop for all our formals right outside the Metairie Country Club. I can’t even begin to describe the gorgeousness that is happening on that street. Even with the huge amount of light pouring through the oaks we still managed to get all these beautiful shots under all these beautiful oaks.

New Orleans: Longue Vue Bridal Photography for Wedding

I loved shooting at Longue Vue!

many beautiful spots for Nicole and I to make some gorgeous bridal photographs.

Nicole’s aunt, whom happened to be a tour guide for most of her life, shared all the fascinating stories behind the home. Apparently the couple who bought the 8 acres of land on the outskirts of the city were frequenters of the country club that the property is adjacent to.

They would sit out on the lawn of the golf course and adore the property over time and ended up making an offer on it. The original home was moved down the street when they realized they wanted a larger home to entertain guests. The Stern’s were owners of the television station in New Orleans at the time.

The home was majestic and completely off limits to tourists now but serves as a beautiful property to explore and meander when you have some time on your hands and are wanting a beautiful excursion from life. The gardens were extravagant and the property had multiple ones for your photographing desires.

This will be of no surprise to my friend but I convinced Nicole into the green house in that amazing wedding dress of hers. It was to die for. Even the greenhouse was extravagant laced with all sorts of greenery to be planted on the grounds or stored for it’s beauty just to be gazed on at random. Everything was perfect in this space.

I swore to Nicole I woud not wear her out with constant photos but she entertained my requests as we finished up directly on the side of where we started. It was all so perfect and lush and greens popping and smells lingering in the air.

Everything was just perfect this day. And even if it wasn’t, it seemed to be.

Nottoway Wedding Elopement

We had rain, toddlers and beautiful images to remember Mindi and Lynn’s wedding elopement at Nottoway. When it comes to wedding photography there is really only one real: get someone you love. I met Lynn and Mindi weeks before their elopement at Nottoway for the proposal and let me tell you one thing: I loved them from that moment on. Laid back, funny and wildly in love. Here are some of my favorites from their Nottoway elopement.
