One of the best parts about being a wedding photographer in New Orleans is getting to know people as you photograph the weddings of their family members, and then one day being asked to photograph their own wedding. I first met Cassie and Ryan at the wedding of his sister Julie Ann, and then again got to spend some time with them at the wedding of Ryan’s other sister Leigh Ann. Needless to say I jumped at the chance to photograph Ryan’s own wedding, when his beautiful bride-to-be contacted me.
Their engagement session is one of my favorites. We started bright and early at the Tournament Players Club of Louisiana- a PGA tour golf facility that is as beautiful as it prestigious. The staff there are the nicest folks you would ever want to work with- they were incredibly accommodating at 7 AM when we arrived to create the golf portion of our engagement shoot. After the golf course we headed over to Segnette Field to celebrate Cassie and Ryan’s shared love of softball. We finished up the shoot in the French Quarter, and were able to take advantage of a beautifully blue sky to shoot a bit of drama.
Here are my favorites from Cassie and Ryan’s totally colorful, completely fun engagement portrait session:
