It isn't hard to see why New Orleans is a popular place to elope & get married. With the romantic architecture, lively music scene, unique art, & dang good food... NOLA is the perfect place to start married life together!
From hidden courtyards of the French Quarter to magnificent live oak trees, it's an honor to have photographed over 100 weddings here in
Every couple has unique needs and desires for their wedding experience. I'm always available to offer you tailored guidance based off of your vision for your wedding in New Orleans.
I know when to step in to give direction, and when to remain in the background to let a special moment play out. I will guide you towards looking your best, but I will not interfere with important moments and/or create stuffy, fake interactions that don't feel or look like you. I am here to capture the real emotions and real moments of your wedding day.
With me, your images are YOUR images. Every single photograph I deliver to you is full-resolution, completely available to download, and included in your package. I do have an online store available for prints and canvases but there is ZERO obligation for you to purchase anything.
perfect. this sounds like what I'm looking for!
My approach to weddings is about 90% documentary. The real moments between people is where it's at for me & my focus is primarily on candids. However, there's also something to be said about elegant family formals and creative photos of only you two in gorgeous light. Above all, I work to keep my photographs honest and authentic. I won't put you in poses that don't feel like you, and the emotions I capture should feel like the best, most honest expressions of who you are.
I do everything I can to be exactly what you need - far from intimidating, relaxed when no one else is, and attentive to you. A wedding is a whirlwind of a day, but the right photographer will be there to help slow it down and bring your wild, weird, romantic love alive with photographs for you to love for generations to come.
No longer are elopements and small weddings quick, thoughtless, or unimportant
In fact, I'd argue that they're pretty much the exact opposite. Why? Because when your day isn't filled with fluff, details, and pomp & circumstance, there's more room for genuine moments and quality time with those you love most.
Deciding to ditch the tradition, expectation, and obligations of a big wedding for a free-spirited, low-stress, highly romantic start to your marriage is brave. And doing it in one of the most fun, charismatic cities in the world is just good taste!
As your photographer, I want your day to be a huge success!
I know that planning a wedding in New Orleans (even a small one!) can be overwhelming. You may have questions like...
- Where should we stay & get ready?
- Where should we have our ceremony?
- Which vendors should we hire?
- What time will the lighting be the best?
- What permits do we need to have a second line?
- What are some unique things we can do to make our day unique to us?
I am happy to help you with all of these things and more. Planning a wedding is a team sport and a process that I've helped couples with again and again.

"Brei was wonderful to work with. She really took time to know us beforehand and that comes through in our photographs. Her genuine, sweet and dreamy style was exactly what we were looking for. Super professional, organized, great communication, and beautiful photos. Photography was the one aspect of our wedding we did not stress about because we knew we were in good hands! Thank you, Brei!"
