Elopement Portrait at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1

One of my favorite type of jobs as a New Orleans wedding photographer is an elopement portrait session. This couple had a small ceremony on Halloween at the French Quarter Wedding Chapel, and then we headed out for some portraits around the city, including this shot by St. Louis Cemetery No. 1. Though the cemetery itself was closed that day, we still captured some great photographs along this brick wall.

After the wedding, the groom had these nice words for me.

Michael was awesome photographing our elopement. Being from Ohio, we were out of our element finding a photographer to document our special day in New Orleans, but after doing a rather exhaustive search online, I was lucky enough to find Michael. I reached out to him via email and he almost immediately responded back. I discussed w/him what we liked, what kind of places we were looking for and right away he had a game plan.

Unfortunately, the COVID lockdowns hit and we decided that it would be better to postpone our elopement from last year to this year (2022). I contacted Michael and he couldn't have been more understanding and accommodating as we pushed our date back a year.

Our day finally came and again, being from out of town we were nervous about how everything was going to work out, but Michael had everything worked out and it was a stress free and perfect afternoon in The French Quarter. He had all of the areas that we wanted mapped out and showed us several places that we of course didn't even know about. The pictures came out amazing and everyone that has seen them have commented how great they are. Michael was very professional, personable and we couldn't have been happier. I would absolutely recommend Michael to anyone seeking a photographer in the New Orleans area. You won't be disappointed!!!
