Brad & Amanda : Morning After

You know it’s a good wedding when you don’t want it to end… when there’s just so much happy swirling around that everyone involved wants the night to last forever.
Luckily, in a city like New Orleans, you can drag things out a little longer.
We had an amazing sunrise stroll around the French Quarter with the newly minted Mr. & Mrs. Johnson, and got to see a side of the Crescent City we’d never seen before. Turns out, sunrise over the Mississippi is downright amazing, and the low hum of the Quarter just waking up is a completely magical sound. We can’t wait to do this again someday!


I know this is just runoff from watered plants on the second story, but it looks for all the world like a torrential rainstorm, and it’s SO SEXY.


Amanda & Brad, we cannot thank you enough for bringing us on this journey with you. Thank you for your unabashed adoration for each other, your adventurous spirits, your willing hearts, and your encouragement of our art. We do our best work when we partner with couples who just set us free, and you truly did that. Congratulations on the start of your new life together… may the next 100 years be as amazing as last weekend was! 🙂

    I don’t even know you, or the bride and groom. In fact, I really have no idea how I came across your blog or Facebook page. However, I do know that you take amazing pictures! I am totally inspired by every shot that I see of yours. You can feel the moment in every one of them. The sunrise pictures over the Mississippi are absolutely breathtaking! I fell in love with New Orleans the first time I went and this makes me want to go back, like now. Congrats to the bride and groom!
