One of my favorite things about New Orleans is the diversity amongst us, in landscape and locations! If you look really hard in our beloved city you can find locations that look like farms, Narnia, and even secret gardens like this session! New Orleans has a wonderful urban feel in the city, but there’s so much more this city has to offer as us well! If an urban feel isn’t what you’re envisioning for your portraits, you just have to think outside the box! New Orleans weather can be so unpredictable, especially in the winter! It was rather cold this day, and so windy, but our gorgeous bride, Francesca, handled the cold and wind like a PRO! We have so enjoyed our time with this sweet bride, we will miss her!! Although I am excited she’s a Mrs. now so I can officially share some of my favorites from her gorgeous bridal portrait session!
Bridal portraits are one of my favorite things to capture as a wedding photographer! All of our brides have an engagement session with Daniel & I, so by the time it’s time for their bridal sesh they are very comfortable with us and comfortable in front of our camera as well! It is one of my favorite things to see our brides become confident working it in front of our camera, and having FUN! It was so fun during Frans bridal session to hear about the big day from her and her mom, they share such a special relationship together! They reminded me of my mom & myself, I loved it! I was so excited to share some of her bridals today and to type this blog, it always serves as a nice reflection time for me! As we head into our busy ‘spring wedding season’ I know the next six weeks are going to be like a whirlwind of a wedding season! I’ve always been someone who enjoys staying busy, I enjoy having something to do…always. But sharing Fran’s bridals today reminds me of one very important thing for myself: it has always been and always will be about the people for me! People over pictures! We love capturing gorgeous pictures, it is truly a passion, but we know that pictures aren’t our sole purpose in life. It’s the people! Our time with Fran & Dalton has almost come to an end, but we will always be thankful for this sweet couple! It has been such an honor for us to work with you both and to be with you on your big day! It’s couples like Fran & Dalton who embody the qualities of Studio Lund: genuine, joyful, & timeless that reminds us why we do what we do!
