James + Nina are so fun to be around and obviously have a lot of fun with each other in these New Orleans Audubon Park engagement photos! Their anniversary is tomorrow (HAPPY EARLY ANNIVERSARY!) so it was the perfect time to take some time celebrating their love and marriage through photographs. W
We started at Audubon Park, close to where James + Nina spent the first couple years of their New Orleans life together. (It was a fun creative challenge shooting them with so many people around! It’s a popular place!)
Of course we had to start with a picnic complete with Nina’s colorful heels and a cold bottle of champagne!
People were streaming by this road as we photographed, and they all seemed quite jealous of our champagne! New Orleans is such a friendly city, people are always so respectful when I’m photographing a couple or a family in the park – but some can’t resist a photobomb or two!
This is what I call “eat it with a spoon” light!
James is an engineer and Nina is currently in grad school. They definitely have to work hard to prioritize their time together, but the joy in these photos clearly shows they couldn’t enjoy each other more!
Honestly I’d buy a book with this photo as the cover!
We also wandered Uptown (Prytania and St. Charles Ave are always winners!) and bathed in some glorious evening light.
James and Nina did an amazing job of coordinating their outfits, not matching!
We have the best light in southern Louisiana! It looks like a movie!
Thanks for spending your evening with me, James + Nina!
