The sun was really showing off and providing the best kind of light for Lauryn and Blake’s downtown New Orleans engagement session. We strolled around the Arts and Warehouse districts, finding the best pockets of light and shadow along the way. We talked about life, weddings, and marriage, and the whole afternoon felt like a double date in the city. Lauryn and Blake are a wedding videography and photography duo (see their work here). It’s always fun to photograph other photographers, collaborating on ideas and trying new things. After exploring sunlit walls and empty alleyways downtown, we headed to the Lake Pontchartrain lakefront for some photos on the water at sunset. Lauryn and Blake are laid back and enjoy being around each other which made this session such a fun one to photograph.
Downtown New Orleans and the lakefront are both great places for photo sessions. For even more ideas on our favorite places in New Orleans for engagement sessions, check out these lists of our favorite outdoor and indoor spots around the city.
We are so excited to photograph their wedding in the same place that we got married. Here are a few of our favorite photos from their downtown New Orleans engagement session:
