New Years Elopement in the French Quarter | Kim & Mike | New Orleans Elopement Photographer

Updated: May 18, 2020

There is something about this city, New Orleans. Anyone who lives here, grew up here or has visited here leaves a piece of their heart in this city. A lot of couples come to town once and find themselves celebrating and vacationing here and making the most incredible memories together. And with our city being full of photogenic spaces, it's no surprise that couples choose to elope here. Weaving their beginnings as a married couple into the history of the city. These two lovebirds, Kim and Mike, drove down from Pennsylvania and decided they couldn't wait until 2020 to be husband and wife, they got married right before New Years Eve under an Oak tree right outside Jackson Square. If you've even been to New Orleans for the holidays, we are full of visitors and getting around the French Quarter can be challenging, Let alone photographing a couple on their most magically day with the excess revelers. Luckily - Kim and Mike found me and it was one of the most lovely days I've spent photographing an elopement in New Orleans. We started our journey together at the Hotel Monteleone for their first look and Reverend Tony with the French Quarter Wedding Chapel to officiate, provide a harpist and take care of the marriage license.

Whether it's the holidays, the beginning of Spring, the middle of Summer or during Halloween, there is never a bad time of year to elope in New Orleans; and when you do, come find me! I can't wait to see you!! I have three different elopement collections to fit ALL of your elopement wedding photography needs!

My goal is to create moments that are not in existence for you yet. I crave to crate connections with my couples as clients AND as friends. As we embark on this wild ride to “I Do”, WE are going to live our lives out loud showing all the vibrance, joy, and many shades of colorful love you share with the world.

I am based out of New Orleans, Louisiana and Baltimore, Maryland and an always ready for the next adventure. I have travel and worked all over the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. My approach to photography is very non-posed focusing on relationships, not a static 20 poses, and most importantly putting YOU first!

I travel at minimum monthly for weddings, portrait work and with digital creators all around the US and internationally. So, if your dream wedding day is romantic, colorful, offbeat, on a farm, in the city, at a manor, at the bottom of a canyon or on a glacier, I am ready to rock out with you and pour you a glass of champagne to celebrate these magical moments with you. To get the lowdown on my upcoming travel dates or when I’ll be in a town near you, drop me a message here to set up your personalized travel portrait/elopement/engagement session with me!
