When my husband and I decided to take a trip on a whim, we gave ourselves two options, Nashville or New Orleans. Both locations have been on my wish list to visit for the longest time. Either location was a great choice, but in the end, NOLA won and we started planning with only a few short weeks before our vacation window.
My husband was super supportive when I told him I wanted to take time out of our short vacation to do a session or two in French Quarter, and I am so glad he did! This couple, the location, the timing, the weather, all fell in to place for this on-a-whim engagement style session.
Being that I have never been to NOLA, we spent the first day wandering around the city on foot. There were several choices in and around French Quarter that would have been so incredible, but one of the things that drew me in to NOLA was the bright colors of the buildings, the storm shutters on every door and window, and the texture and detailing of the buildings. These are some of the oldest buildings in Louisiana. There is so much history on these streets and I was so blessed and grateful to experience it while I was there.
Thanks to Tiffany and John Michael, who are the cutest couple ever btw, I got my wish to shoot this session in such an amazing part of New Orleans. They are blessed to call the French Quarter home and will be able to have some fun photos to look back on to this moment in their lives together!
This trip has to be one of my favorite trips I have ever taken. Seeing the city, exploring the history, hearing the stories, meeting the people, listening to the beats of the constant music, and leaving with new friendships, gives me all the feels. I can’t wait to return to NOLA to not only retrace my steps but make new paths and discover more!
