Kate & Cory Married!!!

I am so excited to be posting these images from Kate and Cory's wedding on June 22nd! On the day of the wedding they had me come to The Saint on Canal St. where the bridal party and family were getting ready and staying for the weekend of events. The feeling was busy and happy when I arrived to capture the prep shots. This hotel is so beautiful and modern, they have just opened recently and it was nice to be able to get inside for a glimpse. Kate is a big fan of exposed brick so these rooms were perfect for her and some of the detail shots. In the lobby there is an awesome pool table and chandelier just begging to be photographed, and of course a perfect choice for the portraits of the groom and his guys. After the girls got all dolled up and were ready for some fun portraits around the French Quarter, we headed outside for a quick walk around the block. What a fun time! We found some perfect spots and got lucky enough to hop on a street car too :) Then it was time to head to St. Joseph Catholic Church for the ceremony and then downtown to the Federal Ballroom for a fun and exciting reception. It was such an amazing experience, Kate and Cory had a blast hanging out with all the friends and family, and each other. Congratulations and I hope you enjoy this teaser of favorite images from the day!

A New Orleans Family Session

My dear sweet Family! It's something like this that makes me so happy to have the career I have chosen in life. These are the type of shots that say Family to me. Fun, happy, laid back and just plain cute! Gerald & Noelle (New Orleans Natives) and their beautiful girls Kate and Meg took some time out of their vacation to hang out with me in the Quarter and we had a blast! We luckily happened on a street that was clear of cars for street cleaning - love Tuesdays for that - and got a great shot of them walking and taking in the beautiful architecture. Then it was on to Café du Mondé for some coffee & beignets, then a quick stop in Jackson Square where the girls turned on the charm and talked a nice man into letting us take a quick shot in his carriage. These girls are somethin else I'm telling you... I love them to death! Love to my cousins, I hope you enjoy these...

Kate's Bridal Portraits - City Park and Warehouse district

It's been so hard to keep these images of Kate's Bridal Portraits to myself for such a long time!!!! Kate and I had been trying to decide where she wanted to have most of the images taken between City Park and the Warehouse district and we decided to go with splitting the time between both locations. We shared the same vision of what she wanted and starting at City Park was a great idea because we had so much fun and got so many great images, including the one that was chosen to be displayed as a large print at the reception. It really was a hard choice between the classic and modern shots and Kate was just so beautiful in all the photos, it's a good thing I did not have to make the final choice! I am happy to be able to share these now and hope everyone enjoys seeing them. Congratulations to the happy couple... Look for my blog post coming soon from Kate and Cory's Wedding!
