Worlds Best Wedding Photographer 2016
Raised in Louisiana, we know New Orleans like the back of our hand. We absolutely love this city! New Orleans has some of the best music, culture and food in the country. New Orleans is by far the best place to be planning your wedding. We love all the wedding venues that this city has to offer and thoroughly enjoy working with a variety of couples madly in love.
About 15 years ago we were searching for our own wedding photographer. We know exactly how you feel right now. Just like you, we researched, we planned and we hoped that everything would come together the way we envisioned it to. For us, searching for a wedding photographer came with a lot of stress. We had a very specific vision for how we wanted our wedding photos to look. We loved images that looked unplanned and felt that time had stopped. Unexpectedly, wedding photography became the most important thing to us. It became the biggest priority on our list and totally changed our career direction. It wasn't long after we got married that we knew we wanted to build a business together so we started our journey on our wedding photography career together.
After reading several books, attending online classes, workshops and and tons of practice, with butterflies in our stomachs, we shot our first wedding and everything changed forever.
Why we decided to document weddings
"Perks of the job"
We wake up every morning to the aroma of Stumptown coffee brewing already in our automatic grinding coffee pot. I think here is where the stereotype holds true. We are some serious coffee addicts! Our mornings are usually slow. We spend most mornings talking about our future, cuddling with our cat and discussing our daily tasks for the day together in our living room while trying to wake up. Perks of the job I guess.
We love to travel. Mountains, beach, a foreign country, it doesn't matter where. Just take us someplace new. Our favorite vacation was in 2019 when we spent nearly a month in Europe getting lost and wandering around. We love flying and longer layovers so we can drink Champagne in airport lounges. A few places next on this travel list are Australia, Iceland, Japan and back to Scotland.
We have an adorable house in the city so bike rides and afternoon walks have become part of the routine and we usually end the day with a glass of wine and some TV.
We started shooting weddings around 15 years ago after falling in love with wedding photography when we planned our own wedding. It has truly been an incredible 15 years. Photography has taken us all around the world and we have met some of the most interesting people on the planet that has shaped us into who are are today.
In 2015 we saw a need in the wedding industry for quality wedding filmmakers. We had an idea to start up a second company that focused entirely on making high quality wedding videos. So we approached a friend of ours to see if she would be interested in joining us in our new business venture. Learning video was a challenge. But with a photography background it didn't take long to connect with it and learn the craft. Fast forward 7 years. Our little wedding video business Genuine Collective Films now has 4 full time shooters has grown to be one of the most respected and sought out wedding film teams in Louisiana. We have officially partnered with our team at Genuine Collective Films to create photo and video packages that offer a seamless process. Feel free to ask about how this works.
