Capture Your Glow on Camera

Whether you hire a professional photographer or have a talented friend with an awesome camera, NOLA is the perfect backdrop for engagement photos. Your love, like New Orleans, is timeless. Capture it with photos your family and descendants will treasure in the following locations.

The French Quarter/Jackson Square

The Vieux Carré, a backdrop for so much American history, is the perfect backdrop for your engagement pics as well. Choose the side of a colorful old building with lots of patina, a French Quarter balcony framed with wrought-iron, the old-world charm of Jackson Square, a hidden courtyard bursting with banana leaves, or the decks of a steamboat. Note: a permit and fee are required for sessions in Jackson Square.

City Park

Picturesque stone bridges over sleepy bayous, magnificent live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss, the Peristyle with its grand columns, lovely gardens with lots of color…City Park is a wedding photographer’s dream come true.


Louisiana’s Great River Road is lined with plantations which make the perfect setting for your wedding or your pre-wedding pics. One of our favorites is Houmas House which gives you many options – inside and out. The place drips romance.
