Engagement Portrait by Old Brick Building

I had driven past these apparently abandoned 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, more dramatic 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. She has always put great effort into making so many couples' weddings perfect, and it was great to be able to work with her on her own fabulous wedding, with the ceremony taking place at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, and the reception, of course, being at Southern Oaks!
