Bride and Groom at Evangeline Downs in Opelousas

Though I'm based in the New Orleans area, I do periodically travel out a bit further to photograph weddings, as was the case with this wedding at Evangeline Downs in Opelousas, Louisiana, which is not too far from Lafayette. Whenever I arrive at a venue, if I know the couple wants to do some romantic portraits of the two of them, I always look around to find some appropriate spots. I loved the way this wall looked, and it was right outside the event space, plus it was in good light!

Here are some nice words that the bride wrote after the wedding:

I could not begin to express how happy we are with our wedding photos. Michael was incredibly detail-oriented from the beginning. We were initially attracted to his work because we noticed how amazing his candid shots were. We wanted the most genuine moments and emotions captured on our special day - and he did just that! We could not be more satisfied. As we were looking for our photos, we kept saying, "Do you remember him even standing there? It was like he was invisible the whole time, but he captured so much!" He and his assistant have such positive attitudes, and they don't miss a beat! You will not regret hiring Michael as your wedding photographer. Nothing feels forced, and he captures every special moment in perfect quality. I'm so glad we have these photos to cherish forever.
