THIS was my first wedding. In New Orleans, Louisiana (where I had never been). During French Quarter Fest (which I had never attended). My boyfriend came as my second shooter, and guide to the city. We had been together a little over 6 months and he seemed qualified because he was up for it. And all I had to do was buy his plane ticket. SO, yep. Together we took it on.
What was I thinking? I don’t know! Excited and optimistic, and mostly naive… I put some classes into action and gave it my all.
While there are many images in this set I am proud of, it is also a great mark of how far I have come. I wish I had it to do all over again. There is no greater event to kick off my wedding photography career.
AND, yes, a few years later I went on to marry the guy I brought to NOLA. How could I not? Anyone who would take on this adventure is a keeper!
