New Orleans Wedding at Rosy’s Jazz Hall

Joseph & Colleen

I had such a good time photographing Joseph and Colleen’s Wedding in New Orleans!  I get to see so many interesting places and meet so many wonderful people shooting weddings and this one had it all.  If you know me you know I love New Orleans and that it’s home to my long term photo project, so whenever I have the opportunity to photograph a wedding there it’s like Christmas.  We first met Joseph and Colleen at their rehearsal dinner in the French Quarter the day before the wedding.  They had a great band playing second line for their while the two of them and their family and friends dance and sang along..  It was like a mini-parade with police stopping traffic and everything… but what got me was how much fun everyone was having!  Within minutes you could tell that this friend group was special and that they loved having a good time!  Imagine you and over 100 of your closest friends just dancing in the streets in the streets of Nola and everyone is getting down…makes you smile too doesn’t it.  That was the first night (although I put those images at the end of this post), it kept up into the next day.

The wedding day was such a fun and special day filled with images and love.  I could go into detail about it, but hopefully these photographs do the day justice. Joseph and Colleen seemed to have the strongest friendship imaginable, and to able to witness that bond turned to into marriage was inspiring.  Joseph & Colleen my hat goes off to you and your crew, you really now how to  celebrate!  Also I must give the biggest shout out to my friend and fellow Photographer Eric Clausen  for lending his skills to the day, I believe he has one of the strongest voices in our industry and I am always humbled to shoot along side him. And of course for all of the Vendors that help make the amazing!!
