When Jason and I were planning his birthday trip to New Orleans I KNEW I needed to get some photos of City Park with actual humans! The last time we visited I had literal heart eyes strolling through the park under the gigantic oak trees with Spanish moss cascading down, and I told him “this would be PERFECT for an engagement session!” So I sent a shoutout on Instagram for a model couple (following me really does have its perks sometimes LOL) and Alyssa responded!
She picked out the cutest yellow dress (You can find it here!) and he wore a blazer and dress pants–bless his soul because it was HOTTTT.
Which brings me to my next point. It was HOT. We did this session in the morning right after it stormed and the humidity was stifling. These two were SUCH troopers and so dang CUTE together. My couples sessions usually last 1.5 hours, but I didn’t want to torture them (😂) so we just had a short 30 minute session. They were naturals, and I still can’t believe how lucky we got with the weather! It rained/flooded for hours after this!
New Orleans is one of our favorite cities, and I can’t wait to be back! I’m definitely open to doing more couples sessions as well as weddings here! Hit me up ;)
This tree was made for this 😍 This tree was SO BIG I couldn’t even fit it in my frame.
