new orleans elopements & intimate weddings

Specializing in eclectic elopements and small weddings

It isn't hard to see why New Orleans is a popular place to get married. With the romantic architecture, incredible live music, unique art, & dang good food...  it's a perfect place to start married life together.

You’re coming from across the country—maybe across the world!—to get married in this icon of a city, so I want you to think of me as your guide. I will follow your lead, always listen to your needs, and then use my resources and experience to help create a completely customized experience.

Vendor recs? I got ‘em.
Overwhelmed with planning? I’m just a phone call away.
Need help with permits? I’ve got the hook-ups.
Brainstorming sesh? Let’s do it. 


Whatever you dream up, I am here to help you create an amazing day from start to finish.

forget everything you know about eloping...

No longer are elopements quick, thoughtless, or on a whim

In fact, I'd argue that they're pretty much the exact opposite. Why? Because cutting the fluff, stress, and pomp & circumstance leaves you with an entire day to fill exactly how you want!

Deciding to ditch tradition, expectation, and obligation 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!

why i love elopements & small weddings

(hard to do when you have to accommodate the needs of 200+ people!)

My approach to weddings is about 90% documentary. The real moments are where it's at for me & my focus is primarily on candids. However, I love the more artistic & editorial side of photography as well - there's definitely something to be said about taking 30 minutes or so to make creative portraits of just 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 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.

My approach to photographing your wedding

• Guided experience tailored to your vision + superb customer service

a custom experience focusing on moments over poses

• A natural blend of photojournalism and direction

• Edited photos, downloadable galleries, + full resolution digital files

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.

yes! this sounds like what I'm looking for.

"Brei is the best decision we made for our entire wedding process. Every step of the way she was perfection and made us feel comfortable. Not to mention how much the photos came out that fit our personalities, relationship, and love for each other to a T. All of her photos are ones we cherish and will continue to for the rest of our lives.

Not only is Brei an INCREDIBLE artist but she is a beautiful person. I will always consider Brei a part of the family." 

"Brei is the best decision we made for our entire wedding process."

"There are no words for how happy I am to have found Brei – she did both our engagement and our wedding photos, and they are all gorgeous. She’s super sweet, talented, and just all around awesome! For our engagement session [...] I was in love with pretty much every pic she took. I knew that come our wedding day, she would deliver. And she did!!! From getting ready and capturing the anticipation from both the bride and the groom, to the tender expressions during the ceremony, to the sheer elation during the second line… She exceeded all of our expectations – the photos were absolutely beautiful and I can’t imagine anyone else being there. So incredibly grateful and satisfied!!"

"Brei exceeded all of our expectations. I cant imagine anyone else being there"

"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!"
