Wedding ceremonies in New Orleans take place at a wide variety of locations. On any given weekend, I could be shooting at centuries-old Catholic church, a quaint French Quarter courtyard, an elegant Garden District mansion, a cozy bed & breakfast, or a glamorous and sophisticated modern event venue. I've even photographed weddings in more unusual places, such as aloft in a hot air balloon gracefully gliding above rural south Louisiana, on the deck of the famous riverboat Natchez as it steamed down the Mississippi River, and on a New Orleans streetcar rumbling along St. Charles Avenue.
Even though I've shot at most of the major wedding venues in the city, I also have the experience to quickly assess even a new location where I haven't previously worked.
I photograph wedding ceremonies as discretely and unobtrusively as possible, striving for a balance between capturing great images and not distracting too much from the proceedings. There are some instances where the size and/or layout of the ceremony space means I may have to be a bit more conspicuous than I'd prefer, but I always attempt to minimize my presence to the greatest extent possible.
