Alison + Shane flew in for their New Orleans sunset City Park engagement photos! Every time I meet a destination couple it’s a bit of a mystery, especially the groom! Typically I Skype or talk on the phone with the bride, and I’m so thankful for mediums such as Instagram and Facebook where we can get to know each other quite a bit before meeting for their engagement session. I loved meeting Alison + Shane in real life for the first time (they came all the way from PA!) – they are just as sweet as they are gorgeous!
I brought my friend and assistant (friendsistant, if you will) Cayce with me on this session because the weather forecast looked like RAIN RAIN RAIN but we never needed to open an umbrella! I’m thankful the rain held out for us and all the moisture in the air created a soft warm glow around everything.
Alison + Shane are getting married this fall at Oak Alley and I’m so ready to celebrate with them!
I absolutely love both of the dresses Alison wore for her engagement session… wait til you scroll and see the next one!
Alison + Shane left me this sweet review: Sarah is an amazing artist and a true professional! We could not be more thrilled with our wedding/engagement pictures. I will cherish the photographs that she took for many years to come. Sarah has a gift at capturing those perfect moments, and I cannot stop looking through my wedding pictures because her photos take me right back to that moment. Sarah was excellent at communicating with us throughout the entire planning process. Sarah is upbeat and flexible. She will also have your back in a crisis! Working with Sarah Becker was an absolute pleasure (and my fiance and I HATE taking pictures). I only wish that I had another big life moment in the future for Sarah to capture!
