Oh man did Alexa and Ryan give me a treat with being down for more wedding portraits in New Orleans. If I could preach on one thing–only one thing to tell my bride and grooms–it would be that you have GOT to give yourselves plenty of time for portraits on your wedding day. However, I do understand that with time and pressure, it’s not always doable. Even though Alexa and Ryan had plenty of time for portraits they still wanted more. We met about two months after their wedding and had a freaking blast. We walked around the by water area of New Orleans and didn’t have a care in the world about time or getting a dress dirty. It was energizing and so fulfilling. Plus, who wouldn’t want to dress up all over again and relive such a magical day??
