This Pennsylvania bride and groom traveled down to New Orleans for a small wedding with just a few friends and family in attendance. The ceremony had taken place at Terrell House Bed & Breakfast in the Garden District, and afterward we headed to Audubon Park for some portraits of the newly married couple as their guests relaxed with drinks back at the B&B and got ready to head out to the small dinner reception planned for later in the evening.
Though big and elaborate weddings are certainly fun to shoot, I also really enjoy working with these smaller, more intimate nuptials. Large events often have a very tight timeline, with not a lot of time budgeted for photographs, which is further complicated when things start running a bit late as is often the case. With elopements and intimate weddings, though, a much greater portion of the couple's focus is given toward the pictures, as typically there is not a tight timeline that must be adhered to.
With the more relaxed pace that a smaller wedding affords, we can capture portraits that are better reflections of the couple's true personalities.
Location: Audubon Park, New Orleans, LA.
