I had driven past the remains of these old brick buildings in a remote part of New Orleans City Park many times, and had always wanted to shoot there but never got around to it. In talking to this bride, it sounded like the perfect spot for us to hit during their engagement portrait session to capture a moodier image.
Lauren is an event coordinator and hostess at Southern Oaks Plantation in New Orleans, who I've had the pleasure of working with over the years as she's worked to make so many couples' weddings perfect. It was great to be able to work with her on her own wedding, with the ceremony taking place at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, and the reception, of course, at Southern Oaks!
Location: City Park, New Orleans, LA.
