Roosevelt Hotel New Orleans Wedding Photography

This fabulous bride and groom took some time before their wedding ceremony for some portraits of just the two of them around the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans. We captured some wonderfully natural and candid shots, as well as some more posed portraits, around the vicinity of the hotel and in the Pere Marquette, but this photograph, under the beautiful Baronne Street entrance of the Roosevelt, was my favorite (and actually ended up being picked as the cover for the couple's Coffee Table Book album). I love all the intricately detailed carvings and other flourishes that adorn this entry, though being fairly high, it can be a bit tricky to compose a shot that incorporates it (this usually involves me laying down in the street along the curb). But it's worth the effort!

Wedding Receptions at the Roosevelt Hotel

The hotel's Blue Room is a famed and historic music venue that is frequently used for wedding receptions, and there are several other ballrooms that can host events of just about any size. Also, the Roosevelt is conveniently located right across the street from Immaculate Conception Catholic Church (the Jesuit Church), so this combination of church and hotel is a natural choice for a classic New Orleans wedding, though the hotel itself can also host your ceremony.
