I have the most amazing job! I get to travel to incredible places like New Orleans (one of my favorite) To capture one of the best days of someones life!
Last year I had the honor and privilege to photograph Leah and Gregory Orys wedding in New Orleans. The venue was at the Mercedes Benz super dome Club XLIV/ENCORE
CLUB XLIV / ENCORE
club XLIV is a private lounge, named to honor the victory by the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV. The club is located in the heart of the Square with an entrance next to the stage, and its built-in amenities include modern furnishings, illuminated bars, specialty lighting and advanced audio/video technology. Encore is connected to club XLIV by oversized sliding doors, and the versatile, plush interior is customizable for any event. Combined, the two prime spaces provide nearly 18,000 square feet and can accommodate up to 1,000 patrons.
Leah and Gregory stayed at the magnificent Hyatt Regency New Orleans
New Orleans hotel near the French Quarter offers easy access to the Super dome
What I loved about this hotel was the spectacular views of downtown! The room was surrounded by glass windows
Kiss and makeup (love the name) did a beautiful job with hair and makeup.although the ladies where all naturally beautiful http://kissandmakeupbeauty.webs.com/services.htm
The guys,I photographed by the Super dome which reminds me of a huge spaceship
The ceremony and reception where held at Club XLIV.Inside it feels like you are in a very high class nightclub,very modern with gorgeous colorful up-lighting,takes you to another world!
At night they light up the Super Dome with the wedding colors and also put your name up on a billboard to congratulate you!
The following day, after all the stress is left behind is when I like to take my couples on their “intimate session”just the two of them with New Orleans as a background, (the world is my oyster) I do this for my destination weddings,I feel that the “alone”time during the wedding day is never enough.The day after session,my couple gets to play dress up again this time without the stress! Everywhere we go people are applauding and congratulating them,they feel like celebrities!
There are so many wonderful back drops!
