Just a few shots from my latest engagement photo shoot with Amy and Christian from Dallas TX. The shoot was done early in the morning in the French Quarter of New Orleans; and when I say early, I mean EARLY, (just after sunrise), when the light is great and the temperature is more manageable. The streets and alleys in the French Quarter are more romantic when they are deserted. A beautiful day with a beautiful couple form some great pictures which they will hopefully enjoy forever. As we say in Italy: Auguri e figli maschi, Amy and Christian!
Here below is another enagement photo session done in New Orleans French Quarter with Natalie and Conar from Tennessee
New Orleans is one of the most romantic, colorful and photogenic cities in the US, full of opportunities for unique engagement photo shoots. While the French Quarter was still crowded with lots of people still hanging out from Mardi Gras’, we managed to get some great images thanks to the location scouting I did a few days before the photo shoot. As you can see from the images below my main focus (pun intended) is to shoot with a modern and more graphic feel to it than a photojournalistic style. Framing the photos balancing spaces and objects in relation with the couple and color palettes of the French Quarter was my approach which I think worked quite well. Of course I did take some more everyday type photos since the French Quarter was really too crowded to take only those clutter free graphic type images, it would have taken a week with all the traffic and tourists!. What a lovely and fun couple to work with…These below are just some of the shots for you to see. Thank you Amy and Christian + Natalie and Conar for the trust and the hard work!
