It can often be a challenge to find an appropriate spot to hang the dress to photograph it, even in elegant hotels like the Roosevelt New Orleans. But in this particular room, the window area had the appearance of a stage, and I really wanted to shoot the dress here. But with nothing to actually hang it on, I pulled out one of my secret weapons for situations like this: a suction cup hook! With that securely attached to the window, I was able to hang the dress there, and got a great shot with a portion of the historic Orpheum Theater visible in the background.
This couple's ceremony was held across the street at Immaculate Conception, with the reception taking place at Latrobe's on Royal.
The bride left me a nice review after the wedding:
Our photographer, besides the venues, was the first vendor we booked for our destination wedding in New Orleans. We came across Michael Caswell on the Knot, and I reached out to him right away. Being from out of town, communication was really important via email and phone to plan for our wedding. Michael was very professional during the whole process. He sent price quotes, notifications of payments, a formal contract, and an on-going timeline of the wedding day that we can always update and edit so he knew exactly how to plan photos. He worked very well with our event planners the day of, and even brought an assistant to help him. His photos came out so beautiful, that we are going to have a hard time narrowing down there are so many good ones. He takes "in the moment" photos which are the best so you can actually re-live the moment how it actually was. His set up of our wedding album website is a great way to view, like ,and purchase photos and give access to our guests. I highly recommend using Michael, especially if you are doing a destination wedding in New Orleans.
