From Julian N. Photography… Danielle and Ben are Los Angeles residents but split their time between LA and New Orleans where Danielle is from. I posted that i was going to be in Nola for a few days, and through the power of the internet, a mutual friend connected us, talk about the right place and the right time! When Danielle got in touch and told me their story i know i wanted to style up their shoot a bit, so the day before the shoot I went to a local flower market in the french quarter and used my DIY skills to make a small loose organic bouquet for the session, i got all neutral colored florals not knowing exactly what color she was going to wear, finally I finished it off with a ribbon from Silk and Willow. Danielle brought a lot of options for the shoot, but when she pulled out her grandmother’s vintage dress I knew that it was going to be perfect. Knowing that Danielle grew up in New Orleans she knew where all the amazing places were, it was also great to shoot in places she used to go when she was younger. We started the shoot at a private residence, and then we went to the New Orleans city park, with so many amazing Spanish moss trees, finishing the shoot in the french quarter.
From the Bride-to-be… Ben and I decided to celebrate our 6 year wedding anniversary with whimsical a photo shoot in New Orleans, where we got engaged 7 years ago to the day! Ben and I met in college. We were the classic best friend story. I dated other guys and Ben would listen to me talk about the bad dates, sit with me when I cried over bad breakups, I always could count on him, no matter what was going on. Our Senior year of college came, and in a whirlwind of a weekend, Ben realized that he never wanted to lose me to another guy or never see me again after college was over! So we started dating!! We were engaged a few months later in the oak-lined streets of New Orleans, where I grew up. Shortly after getting engaged, Ben went away for three months for a mission in the Army and we could not speak at all during that team. So re-living the day we got engaged with this photoshoot was so memorable and romantic! I also got to wear my grandmother’s handmade vintage dress that she wore to a Mardi Gras ball in New Orleans when she was my age! We also got to have our boxer, Lucy, come along for a few pictures! We are so grateful to have these pictures. Young love is naive but magical, but “old love” is even better
