Julie loves being prepared, organized, and detailed. I love that! Although she had me booked as her photographer a year before her wedding day, we didn’t get a chance to meet in person until she was just an hour away from becoming Eric’s wife. Julie and Eric’s wedding coverage was the shortest I did this fall – but it was a welcomed break when you’re nearly 8 months pregnant. Their wedding and reception were held in the courtyard at the St. Louis Hotel in New Orleans. Since they chose not to see each other before the ceremony, the girls got some shots in this small courtyard walkway, while the guys headed out to the street.
While I got some shots of the girls, my assistant Megan, took care of the guys for me. I love these shots she got!
The lovely courtyard at the St Louis hotel makes for one challenging ceremony layout, with little gardens, palm trees, and the fountain forcing you to find a new perspective.
Julie and Eric planned to take a few minutes for some couple pictures after the ceremony. Even though it was completely dark out, we got some pretty neat stuff without going more than half a block from the hotel.
I love this shot of Julie dancing with her dad!
