Akua and Danielle wanted classic New Orleans engagement photos even though they had never seen the city. When they first reached out to me, they found me on Pinterest and wanted photos with the storybook bridge in City Park. While planning, they quickly realized they couldn’t leave the city without also getting some classic shots in New Orleans.
Both Akua and Danielle grew up in Ghana. Akua currently lives in DC for school while Danielle lives in Ghana. Akua arranged for multiple custom outfits that were modern silhouettes using traditional wax print fabrics. THEY LOOKED PERFECT!!! The two of them stepped out of the car at City Park, and I knew we were going to have a great shoot!
We started in City Park, wandering around the oaks. Then, we headed towards the French Quarter. Their shoot captured all the beauty of New Orleans in just a few hours.
If you like this shoot, check out Max and Jeff’s shoot. They also split time between the French Quarter and City Park.
