Best photographers in new orleans 2019.jpg

Big news: our humble photo and video studio just earned a major award from The Knot: Best of Weddings 2019!

As The Knot explains:

The Knot Best of Weddings is an annual award that recognizes the top wedding vendors across the country. This prestigious honor distinguishes vendors who are trusted, dependable, and fun to work with. They have dazzled and delighted their couples, and it definitely shows.

To qualify for the award, wedding professionals need at least 10 reviews from real couples, their families, and wedding guests within the year. From there, the award selection process is rigorous - only the best wedding vendors (top 4%!) receive this honor! They are truly the best of the best.

We’d like to give a special thank you to the couples and families who entrusted us in 2018 to capture the magic and memories of their day. We loved working with each and every one of you, and we are so happy to have been part of your family’s story.

Here’s to more wedding magic in 2019!

Anna and Michael's cute Uptown New Orleans wedding

It took countless people embarking on trips around the country and across the world, but Anna and Michael's wedding on a beautiful Spring day in Uptown was surely worth everyone's efforts.

With both the ceremony and reception held at the beautiful Saint Charles Baptist Church and portraits taken among the ancient oaks of nearby Audubon Park, the setting couldn't be any more gorgeous:

Lindsey and Japheth's timeless French Quarter wedding

We were fortunate enough to be part of Lindsey and Japheth's beautiful French Quarter celebration! Following the crawfish boil rehearsal dinner from the night before, the day began with the bride, groom, and families getting ready at their charming Dauphine Street rental:

Once everyone was ready, the ladies and gents divided into two groups and embarked on separate journeys through the Quarter:

Finally, everyone arrived at the famous French Quarter Wedding Chapel, an intimate and kitschy venue tucked away on Burgundy Street in the heart of the Quarter.  Reverend Tony officiated, offering sage advice and, in venue tradition, helping the couple sign and post a dollar bill onto the ceiling.

The parade ended in the lobby of the magnificent Arnaud's, a French Quarter landmark offering French Creole fare since 1918.  There, Lindsey, Japheth, and their guests enjoyed a refined dinner in a cozy private second-floor dining room overlooking the Quarter.
