What can I say, this is definitely one of my favourite weddings and couples that I’ve photographed so far. This wedding at the beautiful Oak Alley Plantation in New Orleans was nothing short of breathtaking. This destination wedding was like no other. It’s always a welcomed change to be at a wedding like this where the bride and groom actually know everyone in attendance and the experience is much more intimate. I had so much fun hanging out with these two, meeting their family and friends and I’m so happy they chose ME to capture their big day.
New Orleans is such a vibrant and interesting place, I found it impossible to leave the hotel without bringing my camera with me. My Contax645 and Nikon D700 aren’t the most compact cameras to carry around but I couldn’t bare the thought of seeing something awesome and then relying on my iPhone. Having the opportunity to shoot in a location like New Orleans was amazing in itself but there’s nothing like running around the French Quarter, Jackson Square and Oak Alley Plantation photographing a wedding. I seriously love my job! I literally was running, or at least fast walking a lot (it was ridiculously hot). It didn’t hurt to get a little bit of work out in there so I could indulge in all that delicious southern food. Shout outs to Arnaud’s and The Famous Gumbo Pot restaurant for serving up some awesome New Orleans cookin’! Man I love pasta jambalaya!
Congratulations guys! I wish you all the best!
