New Orleans Engagement: Emily and Matt
“Where we love is home – home that feet may leave, but not our hearts.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes
The couples we have the chance to work alongside allow us the incredible opportunity to peer into their lives and their moments. And most times, even their special places. Places where their hearts swell and beam. For Emily and Matt, it is their cozy home, nestled in the Bywater area of New Orleans, Louisiana. Each street is covered in character and life. As we approached their charming home, we were greeted by their sweet pup/child, Janet, and made our way to the front door, where we crossed the threshold into a special place.
You can tell a lot about a person by their home, and we can tell that Emily and Matt beam with life and adventure. We departed for a playful walk with these two and Janet to their favorite BBQ joint in town just a few blocks away, where they grabbed a couple of cold ones and we were on our way, yet again. These two had the right mindset. Our adventure sessions are relaxed. Honest. Real. Real life is an adventure and so is everyday you live it. Documenting those little moments is nothing short of important and it is clear they value that.
After stretching our legs and making our way back home, we then headed to our next stop: Crescent Park on the water. If you want good views of New Orleans, this is your place. Emily and Matt take walks here often and watch the sun set on the beautiful lively city, so we did exactly that. A perfect end to a perfect day.
Thank you Emily and Matt for giving us the privilege of looking into your everyday lives and getting to document it. Thank you for valuing what is most important: the moments so easily overlooked.
