I am a professional photographer based in southeast Louisiana. I was born and raised in in this area, and have lived here my entire life, currently residing in Slidell, LA with my wife of almost 20 years and our four wonderful children. I regularly document nuptial events as well as bridal portraits, engagement portraits, marriage proposals, families, and senior portraits throughout the N.O. metropolitan area, Baton Rouge, the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and beyond. I'm proud to be a full-time New Orleans wedding photographer, which enables me to devote the necessary time and attention to my clients in this heavily service-oriented business.
I've had the opportunity to document a wide variety of marriage celebrations. I've photographed many traditional Catholic, Baptist, Episcopal, Lutheran, Presbyterian, and Jewish ceremonies, as well as countless nondenominational civil marriages. Additionally, I have experience with elaborate and intricate Indian/Hindu ceremonies, and I am perfectly comfortable photographing same-sex couples. I've worked with an equally diverse range of venues and guest counts, from huge Catholic ceremonies at the majestic and historic Saint Louis Cathedral with hundreds of guests followed by opulent ballroom receptions, to intimate French Quarter courtyard gatherings with only a few dozen in attendance. I have packages that include ample hours of coverage for larger events along with beautiful album options, as well as packages that are affordable for smaller budgets, including special options just for couples who wish to elope in this area or who are having a very small event that only require a few hours of photographic coverage. Though I've shot at most of the popular wedding venues in New Orleans and the surrounding area, with my extensive experience, working at new locations is not a problem.
I work primarily with a photojournalistic, documentary-style approach, capturing the events of the day naturally as they unfold, capturing stunningly beautiful images that tell the story of your day. I frequently hear from brides after they view their photographs that they hardly remember even seeing me and are amazed that I was able to capture all those wonderful moments so discretely.
There is no better place to get married than this city, and I thoroughly appreciate being given the privilege of documenting so many of these wonderful events. Wedding photographers in New Orleans get to work with a diverse range of clients at a wide variety of fascinating ceremony and reception venues with loads of character, and unique southern traditions that you don't find in other parts of the country. I've heard from brides and coordinators that invitations for weddings in the Crescent City typically receive a much higher than average percentage of positive RSVPs, and it's not difficult to understand why, as people are much more likely to be willing to carve some time out of their busy schedule to attend if they also get the added benefit of being able to visit this amazing and historic city. Combined with the fact that NOLA is among the top destination wedding locations in the country, marriage celebrations here will often have many guests from out of town, which makes our unique traditions even more enjoyable to photograph; the only thing more fun than photographing a chaotically festive second line parade through the French Quarter is shooting one that consists mostly of guests who are not from this area and have never experienced anything like it!
I am also available for commercial, convention, and conference photography work, corporate portraits and headshots, as well as other special events such as corporate and private parties.
I am available to photograph events across a widespread area in the Gulf South region with no travel fees. I regularly shoot on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain in Slidell, Mandeville, Covington, Madisonville, Abita Springs, and Hammond. I also have the pleasure of photographing weddings in Baton Rouge, as well as other parts of Louisiana such as Lafayette, Shreveport, Alexandria, and the various historic plantations that grace the banks of the Mississippi River west of New Orleans. I enjoy documenting events in Mississippi and have worked along the Gulf Coast as well as the central areas of the state.
