Uptown New Orleans Engagement | Julie + Michael: New Orleans Wedding Photographer

I’m pretty sure 90% of the social plans I make revolve around the best places to share company over good food and good drinks. There’s something about sharing stories, laughs, and even cries over an orgasmically tasty meal that just fills up the depths of my soul. Couples that make plans around the best food + drink spots in town are MY KIND OF PEOPLE, Y’ALL.

This is Julie and Michael. We sipped wine, visited their favorite drink nooks Uptown, and had the most deep-bellied laughs, all while I basically followed them around with a camera and pretended I had funny things to say. It’s days like this that make me stop and pinch myself that I do this for a living.

Seriously, we laughed so stinking hard I’m pretty sure I got a full ab workout that day…

We went in The Columns Hotel on St. Charles for a drink in between outfits. If you haven’t been here, the atmosphere is quite a treat. I highly recommend stopping in next time you find yourself Uptown.

But anyone who knows me even just a little knows THIS was my favorite part of the day. We hung out for a bit at Julie + Michael’s house with their sweet fur babies. This sweet boy, Rascal, stole every bit of my heart.

Christmas Cheer at Destrehan Plantation Mule Barn | Megan + Jordan: New Orleans Wedding Photographer

“You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person I have ever known–and even that is an understatement.”

– F. Scott Fitzgerald

Megan and Jordan booked me quite some time ago. While lengthy engagements aren’t the norm for wedding photography bookings, I absolutely soaked in the time that gave me to truly get to know the two of them. After two engagement sessions and about two years of planning, watching them say “I do” truly felt like I was watching close friends.

Megan possesses the most gentle, radiant soul–one that just gleams to everyone she touches. After having spent some time with them already, I am constantly in awe of the respect and nurturing affection for one another Megan and Jordan possess in the most refreshing of ways. Gentle, kind, and so clearly ready to spend the rest of their lives with no one else but one another.

Megan and Jordan love Christmas, so having their friends and family celebrate with them at such a historic Southern venue with holiday accents was what Megan envisioned from the beginning.

We took portraits right at “golden hour,” which had me nerding out in excitement like a little school girl. Whenever my brides are able to make a timeline for portraits that matches so effortlessly with sunset it makes my photographer heart sing so loudly.

Megan’s flowers were done by Claire of Blumen Lendle. I work weddings with her often and always does impeccable work.

We had about 5 minutes of extra time after portraits, so I snuck off with Megan to capture these. I’m so grateful for timeline planning that allowed us a few extra moments. These are some of my most favorite shots taken of a bride ever, ever.

After the ceremony, we headed back to the Mule Barn at Destrehan Plantation for some of the most killer rug cuttin’ I’ve ever witnessed.
