"Wanted to drop you a quick line of thanks. You were exceptional, professional, patient, kind and the perfect photographer for our daughters’ wedding.
We enjoyed working with you, and from the look of the preview photos- you captured brilliantly the true essence of the day, the emotions and most importantly the love between Alyssa & Jo."
--Ameil A. Sloley (Alyssa’s mother)
You meet someone...
It all starts by meeting Them. You flirt, fall in love, and plan on the most epic adventure!
Jo and Alyssa came to New Orleans with their moms, to begin their epic adventure. When they first messaged me months ago, I knew we'd become fast friends. It was an easy and laid back day, with a ton of beautiful memories to look back on.
Jo brought some of her late father's jewelry to wear and attached a small memento of the two of them to the special bouquet her mom made, using florals from Trader Joe's. As Jo prepared, her mother helped her get into her dress and showed her off to her brothers and family via Zoom, who couldn't be there due to Covid restrictions.
Alyssa and her mother got ready in a separate bed and breakfast not far from Jo. Alyssa wore a gorgeous gold suit and her mother helped her tidy up before heading to Audubon Park.
Alyssa hadn't seen Jo at all once they started getting ready. It was so sweet to capture the first time she see's Jo in her dress, walking alongside her mom, accompanied with music played by a violinist and guitarist. An old friend of theirs officiated, which made this ceremony even more special. The brides chose to Jump the Broom to commemorate their official beginning as wives!
This group of amazing women were the best!! I'm looking forward to seeing Jo and Alyssa when they come back again!
