Kristen + Ryan || New Orleans, LA Wedding

Kristen and Ryan got married just shy of two weeks ago and these images have been seriously burning a hole in my pocket ever since. I’ve been working hard to blog my weddings this year, but I got held back a little bit with the holiday shuffle. This one is worth the wait, though. Promise!

I loved getting to meet Kristen and Ryan at Karly and Todd’s wedding earlier this year, and then saw them again at Caroline and Chris’ wedding in the spring as well! 2018 was a busy year for these gals! Kristen and Ryan wanted a more laid back wedding photography experience, so they opted for a first look at New Orleans City Park. Kristen was an absolute knockout in her gold wedding dress and the peristyle made for the perfect backdrop for their photos. Their wedding ceremony was at Our Lady of Holy Rosary Church and then everyone celebrated at The Chicory. I loved every minute of their day, but I’d have to say that their reception was my favorite part. I captured some of my all time favorite reception photos that night…you’ll see why. ;)

Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your day Kristen and Ryan!
