Lauren & Alyssa........You Had Me at "I want a photo of us in front of the Antique Guns & Swords shop!"
I'm a fan of weddings that are small in number of guests but are wickedly huge in the great deal of support, love and respect for the couple involved. Case in point was the day I met Lauren & Alyssa face to face for the first time and I just wanted to pinch their smiley cheeks all day long!
These two fantastic ladies were all about the photos which coincidentally worked in my favor. I first started with Lauren and her family. All of said family members were great sports and had no issues getting their picture taken. Once Lauren and her family were all set it was on to meet Alyssa. Immediately I could see that Alyssa was going to keep the the spirit of the day alive. Alyssa is a firecracker. I've said many many times that I like goofballs! Once we became acquainted each others eccentric goofy nature Alyssa and I went right to getting some fierce portraits to go with her matching personality. I believe both her and Lauren would've taken photos all night with me given the opportunity and that makes them aces in my book.
The ladies had a small and intimate ceremony at Audubon Park. Afterwards we took advantage of the open space and sunshine for some portraits before heading back to the French Quarter and finishing the day off with, you guessed it, more portraits!! In the hustle and bustle of most wedding days it can be difficult to get this much one on one time with a couple so I was all for it. The icing on the cake for me is when the three of us were strolling the quarter for a good location Alyssa looked at me and said, "I'd love to get pictures in front of the Antique Guns & Swords shop!" What's that you say? A completely ridiculous setting for the brides on their wedding day. Hell yeah I'll take your picture there! I mean lets be serious, where else would you sit down for a wedding day portrait if not in front of the Antique Guns and Swords shop? I rest my case! Alyssa & Lauren, y'all were a delight! En Guard ladies! En Guard!
