We had the recent opportunity to travel to New Orleans to photograph Veronica & Graham’s wedding. Not wanting to leave an opportunity unturned, we convinced Veronica to wake up early Friday morning to put on her bridal gown so we could get posey with her around New Orlean’s City Park. She was kind enough to bring along a crew of her friends to help with the dress and her sister who just happens to be a pro makeup artist. The WPA-era structures around City Park made for for amazing bridal portraits, and the New Orleans heat and humidity made sure we didn’t take up too much of Veronica’s time. The last photograph is in front of the New Orleans Museum of Art and we used a spot grid to highlight Veronica in front of the imposing facade of the museum.
The park here was a revelation to me. I have visited New Orleans several times over the years but felt like this was the first time I was outside of the tourist zone. The buildings and structures around City Park are worth reading about and I suggest on your next trip to the Big Easy that you take a stroll through this historic area.
