New Orleans Wedding Photography Info 

If you are looking to get married in New Orleans, the following information may be helpful to you in order to pick the right New Orleans wedding photographer. 


Style and Connection 

Wedding photography is arguably one of the most important things in your special day since your wedding photographer will be capturing what you will enjoy for the rest of your life and pass on to your kids and so on. Please make sure you select a New Orleans wedding photographer who’s style resonates with you and who’s personality is a good match to yours, especially since you will be spending your entire wedding day together. We strongly recommend, at least, having some phone conversations with your New Orleans wedding photographer before you book them. 


Price and Coverage 

Your selection of New Orleans wedding photography coverage should not be based purely on low price. Basing your decision primarily on low price may not give you the results you were hoping for (potentially from an inexperienced photographer) and there is no way to re-create your wedding day. 

A typical New Orleans wedding is an all-day affair full of good times with incredible food, drinks and music. Your coverage should include at least 7-8 hours of photography in order to capture your wedding from getting ready to the reception and to have enough time for the couple's  creative session and family photos in addition to pure documentary. One thing to remember is that you want to pace yourselves and build in small breaks into this hectic day so it doesn't feel like you're always on the run and are exhausted by reception.


Wedding Albums/Prints 

A wedding should be complimented by a wedding album and/or prints that will stay in your family for generations to come. Ask your New Orleans wedding photographer how many pages and photos your wedding album will have and what sizes are available.

Q. Do you do Destination Weddings? 

Definitely! We figure out our travel costs, select a wedding photography package and go. We don't charge travel costs within 100 miles of New Orleans.

Our photos have a modern lifestyle look where we blend the worlds of documentary photography and art. We work close to our subjects and produce images of the event's participant rather than observer.
