Ruby & Stephen’s City Park Engagement Shoot

Arte by Doug & CheyAnne

We really enjoyed our afternoon with Ruby and Stephen as we did their engagement photos in City Park last week! The weather was perfect in comparison to the first day we had scheduled, so things do happen for a reason.  These two are so laid back and Stephen was such a trooper that I had no idea the whole time that he’s really not super crazy about taking pictures (like many grooms:) but he didn’t let on at all, which always makes for a better experience. He had some pretty impressive black boots on for the shoot and I’m looking forward to seeing the new pair he’s getting for the wedding!  When asked why they chose us to document their wedding day, this is what they had to say:

“One of the things I love most are photographs! I have made scrapbooks for Stephen since our first anniversary (4 years now) and I’m pretty sure I document everything. This was the most important thing about planning our wedding was having amazing photographs to look back at. After looking through many websites we chose ya’ll because the moments come to life in your photos. My eyes glazed over when I watched that slideshow in the studio and I knew it had to be ya’ll.”

Thanks so much for trusting us with your memories, and we look forward to seeing y’all in May for the big day!

Robin & Elliot’s Marigny Engagement Session

Arte by CheyAnne & Doug

Robin and Elliot wanted something a little bit different from the French Quarter scene, so they selected the Marigny for their engagement photos.  They were engaged at a B&B not far from the heart of the Marigny, and then went to Adolfo’s restaurant after to celebrate.  The B&B has since been sold, and we didn’t know they celebrated at  Adolfo’s until we were standing right next to it!  So I was really happy that we were able to incorporate one of those locations into the session. I really enjoyed the vibrant colors that the streets of the Marigny had to offer.  Robin and Elliot were up for anything — they were both very laid back about the photos, and trusted our guidance.  It was so great to get to meet in person finally; I’m looking forward to the wedding!  Enjoy!

Larae’s French Quarter Bridals!

Arte by Doug & CheyAnne

Larae was married at the end of May and despite the rain she had such an incredible rain and showed exactly how a bride should handle a rainy day wedding! CheyAnne and I had a great time roaming the streets for her French Quarter bridal shoot and listening to her Texas accent. You’d be hard-pressed to find a sweeter, more down-to-earth girl. If you missed her wedding post, check it out here!  Enjoy!
