New Orleans Weddings are Timeless
New Orleans is a special place to many but it's my blank canvas every day! My clients have the opportunity to create events from the natural resources the city offers and make it their own private experience. In my 24 years of capturing wedding photography, I haven't had many brides rent a street car. Can you believe that? I often wonder what else can we do in this city that people just aren't aware of?
My bride Arlie, loves the natural beauty of the Oak trees and outdoor goodness. We spoke before the wedding about a timeline that would work the best for the locations she wanted to use. Together we looked at the sun's timeline for her wedding day and talked about what to do and where! I am a huge believer in open communication and proper planning will always help you create awesomeness for your event. We had the street car pick us up by the hotel everyone was getting dressed at and transported us to Holy Name Church right across from Audubon Park. We knew what time we needed to get to the park so, we can capture images with her bridal party and family. I was smiling so big when we exited the streetcar and God's light was perfectly waiting for us!
When we arrived at the Audubon Clubhouse for her reception I walked outside to see what options I might have for the end of the night imagery. I was a little concerned because MAN IT WAS DARK! The Oak Trees were illuminated by spotlights and I wasn't sure if I could use them with my bride and groom. This style of uplighting is great for accenting texture of the structure being lit.
The reception was in it's last 30 minutes when I finally decided to bring them outside. I was pleasantly surprised to see how the spotlight didn't BLOW THEM AWAY! I was really afraid of exposing for the bright spotlight because it would leave the trees in pitch darkness. I used my creative brain and figured it all out. I always enjoy creating a new image from ground up. The first time created is always the most impressive. :)
