I provide high-quality photography and image editing in the Greater New Orleans area. My pricing is reasonable and is designed for those clients who are quality-minded and perhaps on a budget.
My major goal as a photographer is to tell stories...to capture the emotions, personalities and feel of your special day, including weddings, engagements, family groups, anniversaries, reunions, parties, portraits etc.
For weddings and other types of photography, I provide a combination of traditional, journalistic, and formal images that capture the playful and tender moments that you will cherish for years to come. I will consult with you to share ideas about photographic possibilities and learn your particular needs.
In short, I want to ensure that your images are unique. All photos are post-processed, a procedure that involves color correction, blemish removal when needed, toning, and more - all processes are aimed at enhancing the beauty of each image.
BASIC WEDDING PACKAGE:
Destination, Elopement, or Traditional Wedding - Starts at $350 per hour
This package, for any destination wedding, includes the ceremony and a photo session in New Orleans' historic French Quarter, City Park, and other available venues in the city. (Roughly 1 hr.) This package also is suitable for a Traditional Wedding and Reception from one to three or four hours.
You will receive a USB flash drive with 40 to 60 full-size images per hour of photography depending on the venue, including color and black and white photos. Downloads from dropbox.com are provided, too. $50 minimum deposit required - usually non-refundable (applied to total). If you need more or less time, we can arrange this. A second shooter is often used for weddings with over 25 guests, and it costs $50 an hour..
OTHER OCCASIONS: I also photograph other occasions: engagements, family, and individual portraits in the park, birthday and anniversary parties, reunions, events, etc.. Inquire about pricing as the fee may vary for some of these types of shoots. In general, thirty minute photo shoots are available for $225.
SENIOR PORTRAITS:: Thirty-minute shoots or longer, start at $200. Two outfit changes are okay. You will receive digital images on a flash drive and via a dropbox download.
IMAGE EDITING SERVICES:
I have the tools and skills necessary to improve the look of most any digital photo. We all have photos we cherish, ones that capture special moments and people in our lives. However, many of the photos also have distracting elements which can be removed or improved. Pricing is determined by the number of photos you want to be edited and the complexity of editing. Please contact me with your specific needs for a quote. Deposit required - generally non-refundable.
"The DVDs you sent to my mom and me have arrived. The photos are amazing. They capture our wedding day in such a way I can remember every moment. I am so happy with them and will be looking at them over and over, having a tough time deciding which are my favorites. I really like the one of the whole group in the alley. It was hard to explain to people in Boston getting married in an alley. This captures the heart of New Orleans and the place where it all took place. I also really enjoy the ones in the room getting ready. Elijah liked those too, as they were a behind the scenes look at what was going on. I never thought we could have a "sexy" kiss shot, but you were able to catch that between us. Thank you so much for being there and enjoying your time with us, and taking these photos/catching these moments. I could go on for a while on all the different photos, but I think you understand how much we like them." Leah
"The photos are absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much for a beautiful job on the hottest day of the year; you really helped make our day perfect."

"We received the flash drives this afternoon! I also downloaded from Dropbox this morning.
We LOVE the pics." Megan
