Michael & Alyssa

Michael & Alyssa

I met Michael and Alyssa a little over a year ago in Sucre. They met on Tulane’s Campus and are graduates at the prestigious institution. As we got to know each other, I noticed how poised and almost shy Alyssa was, and Michael just as reserved but with a sense of humor - not only were they a good match, but we were a good match for each other.

They were wed on April 15, 2017 at the Botanical Gardens in City Park. Their ceremony was intimate and the atmosphere matched it to boot - light spring weather, flowers blossoming where they exchanged vows in front of their family and friends. They signed a Ketubah, and in their Jewish tradition - broke glass. Michael & Alyssa partied the night away, and even though it rained through part of their reception, they didn't let a little water spoil the celebration.

As always, I am honored they hired me to photograph this beautiful occasion, and I am even more grateful that a dear friend, Devonte Williford with Rare Sighting Photography,  agreed to be my second shooter. Check out some of the photos below.

Ann Marie, surrounded by family and friends, celebrated her Bridal Tea Party in downtown New Orleans at the Windsor Court Hotel. This was such a fun event to photograph, everyone was dressed in their best with hats to match!

Amelia + Jason - Engaged

Amelia reached out to me earlier this month to photograph her engagement session. After we went over the details, we decided to go to City Park, one of our favorite places in the city. 

The day we shot was beautiful with a slight overcast with a soft breeze. We instantly connected as we had a lot in common, and over the course of an hour, we got to know each other and even learned we knew some of the same people (y'all know NOLA is super small).

Amelia, a Retention Specialist, and Jason, an Account for the City of New Orleans, met on Plenty of Fish about 4 years ago. They took their time to get to know one another as people and friends, and according to Amelia, took courting to a new level by dating for 8 months before they became a couple. Jason decided to surprise Amelia by proposing using black stickers are her front door. As she was leaving, she initially missed the message, so Jason had her go back inside to make sure they didn't leave anything. When she came back out, she realized what was on her door, and the rest is history! They're set to marry in May, and I wish them nothing but love and happiness!

The Hip Kid

One of the first shoots that I planned with a friend, Tamara Soup, a talented Make-up Artist, was one that we came up with over the summer. We'd put together a look and locations only to have to keep rescheduling because of weather and life haha. It was kind of funny when we finally settled on a date and time only to realize that in the process of moving, one of the key elements needed for the session, the dress, ended up in storage. So, we decided to wing it. We spent about an hour on make-up before we headed to the Bywater area. If you’ve ever been to New Orleans, this area is known for it’s artistic energy. The houses are adorable, painted in various colors that really make the neighborhoods pop, and you can find just about the best graffiti in this area. As we were shooting (again, perfect weather and lighting lol), we saw a really awesome mural that said The Hip Kid (which I regretfully did not get a photo of). After we wrapped up the session and I got home to edit, I couldn’t quite figure out what to name the session. After scrolling through these beautiful images, I remembered the mural, The Hip Kid, and it fit the session perfectly, Check out the images to see why :)
