Whatya want!?

Before you begin your search for a New Orleans wedding photographer, it's essential to define your style as a couple. Are you drawn to classic elegance, modern minimalism, or perhaps a blend of vintage and rustic charm? Do you envision your New Orleans wedding as a grand celebration or an intimate affair? Are you looking for fun, candid, and un-posed?

Where they at!?

Once you've identified your style, it's time to start researching potential New Orleans wedding photographers. Dive into their portfolios and examine their previous work. Look for consistency in style – do their photographs reflect the aesthetic you're aiming for? If they do more than just wedding photography explore their other photography work. Check out their blogs, social media profiles, and websites to get a comprehensive view of their work and approach to photography.

A skilled New Orleans wedding photographer's portfolio is a window into their artistry. Pay attention to the composition, lighting, and emotional resonance of their photographs. Can they handle wedding photography in different environments or is it all photos at sunset? Do their images evoke the emotions you want your photos to convey? A strong portfolio showcases the photographer's ability to adapt their style to the environment and capture the essence of each couple's unique story. Feel free to reach out to each photographer and ask them if they have photographed at weddings at the particular venue that you have booked. Also keep in mind that each portfolio is the best of the best of every photographers work. One thing I always suggest to friends looking for a photographer is to as to see a full album from one of there recent weddings. That way you can get a view of all the images that couple received.

Beyond photography skills, communication is a critical factor in ensuring a successful partnership with your chosen New Orleans wedding photographer. Arrange a consultation to discuss your vision, expectations, and any special requests you have. An attentive photographer will listen to your ideas, offer insights, and create a collaborative atmosphere where your style takes center stage.

If you contact me and I am available on your wedding date I will send over a price list and checklist which will help guide our first call. From there I setup a zoom meeting where you can ask questions and I can get an idea of the type of vibe you are going for. Then I will make suggestion as for which package will best suit you as well as different ways to approach a formulation of a timeline that will be best for the type of photos you want.
