Your engagement session should feel like a date, and the NOLA China Lights festival is the coolest date.
Andrea and Evan and I have a few mutual friends in the UL visual arts/fletcher/architecture world and I knew from our first few emails that their engagement session would just have to be a creative one. When Andrea first told me about Storyville in NOLA, I had no idea what it was, but I knew I had never been there and that’s always fun. Then she told me about the China Lights festival. Still had no idea what that was either but it was also a new place, so I was in.
We had so much flipping fun.
When I drove up to the area, I was so inspired and so excited. The China Lights festival is seriously the coolest and I couldn’t wait to try out shooting somewhere new. When Evan and Andrea showed up, I knew right away that we were going to have a blast together. They treated it like a date! Seriously though, my main goal for engagement sessions is to help two people create a memory together. From climbing in tree houses meant for 3-year olds to searching through mazes to find peacocks to maybe trespassing once or twice, I know that I’ll have some great memories from this session and I hope Andrea and Evan do too!
Thank you guys for trusting me enough to do something as cool as this. You guys are the jam.
