Kevin + Kim's Wedding Day

Kevin + Kim's wedding day began early in the morning in the French Quarter, and it didn't slow down from there. We jumped to the Lower Garden District and out to a classic New Orleans East spot to close out the night.

Jordan + Hannah's Wedding Day

Goats and horses welcome you to the Berry Barn at Liuzza Land, where Jordan and Hannah were married on April 16. A carriage ride and gorgeous farm in the backdrop made for a special setting, to say the least.

Hannah walked down the aisle to the sweeping sounds of "Stairway to Heaven," and you could see the emotion written all over Jordan's face. It didn't take long for them to cut loose at the reception, with Jordan taking home the MVP of the night for dancing.

Michael + Sally's Wedding Day

Michael and Sally read each other their own special vows with a lush green garden as their backdrop. The wedding ceremony was the first of its kind at the Press Street Gardens, and it was every bit as special as you'd imagine.

A second line through the park and to the Press Street Station followed, and then Michael and Sally were treated to a concert fronted by Mike's brother. It was intense. It was awesome. Now I just wish we could do it all over again.

Joe + Josh's Wedding Day

Joe and Josh were married weeks after the Supreme Court made its landmark decision, and you could tell they’d been waiting for this day for a long time.

The day started off with the Hilton Riverside and its gorgeous view. A quick ride over to Jax Brewery led us to the wedding ceremony, which kicked off just as the sun hid behind the French Quarter skyline. Late-night celebration and dancing capped off one perfect evening.

The Big Fake Wedding - New Orleans

I had a blast shooting at The Big Fake Wedding's second event in New Orleans. It's a bridal show that's staged like an actual wedding, with a bride and groom renewing their vows.

Newlyweds Beau and Sophie were still on a honeymoon high, and they had a lot of fun re-living their wedding day again.

Drew + Lexi's Wedding Day

I'd been waiting for Drew and Lexi's wedding for some time. A gorgeous couple on a rooftop and under a sunset is a photographer's dream, and this easy-going couple followed it up with a wild reception and the best damn second line I've ever seen.

Alyse and Thomas invited us for a quick ride up to Woodville, Miss., to shoot their wedding. It was a rainy day, but honestly, it couldn't have been better. They were all smiles and totally game for anything.
