Clients that happily begin their engagement sessions at a coffee shop for a quick meet and greet always make my heart sing. Heather and Scott were no exception to this! We began by saying our hellos at CC's in the French Quarter and from there (iced coffee in hand!) we meandered at a relaxed pace around the colorful streets of this New Orleans neighborhood. I really enjoyed getting to know this NY couple in person. Heather and I had spoken on the phone a couple weeks prior to the shoot and it felt like chatting with an old / new friend! We immediately hit it off and found ourselves laughing and expressing common interests. I can't wait to watch them marry each other next year!
It has been raining cats and dogs here for a few days but I'm still doing a little celebrating as this was my last session before a little early summer break. I can't wait to catch up on editing, blogging, and a few other work related things. I'm FINALLY back in my studio after sharing it with my Mom-in-Love for a living space while she waited for her apartment to be finished. I hardly know what to do with the space now that I have it. I'll be sure to share little snippets here and there as it starts to come together...or not. Life has a funny way of making the important things either happen faster than you intend or much, much slower than planned. Anywho, onto the photo goodies!
Every time I am connected with a couple through Weddings by Lulu I find myself surrounded by lots of laughs and of course, great style. Arusyak and Edward were no exception as we found ourselves cracking up at the New Orleans Board of Trade for most of the shoot. I think Arusyak giggled through 90% of the photo shoot and I absolutely love how much that translated to joyful imagery! Enjoy this little sneak peek and Happy almost Friday!
Laura and Cole were effortlessly laid back and amazingly stylish. It was an incredible pleasure to photograph their big day at one of my most favorite venues in the city, Il Mercato. I hope you enjoy this stunner of a wedding. With Laura's gold sequined gown and Cole's custom made blue tuxedo, it's impossible not to. I absolutely LOVE the florals, especially the bouquets, by Pistil and Stamen.
