Alexis and Jim were married on March 24 in New Orleans at Lady of Guadalupe Church with their reception at the Royal Sonesta.  This was a fantastic day and one that I was glad to be apart of.

When Alexis emailed me looking for a videographer, I was excited to hear from her.  I had filmed her best friend’s wedding and D’Andra and Buddy’s wedding was one of my funniest weddings to work.  Knowing Alexis from their wedding just made everything about their day fun and exciting for me.  I knew this was going to be a great day.

One of the best aspects of this wedding was their first look outside their Bridal Suite.  Everything went perfect and I knew that Alexis and Jim were nervous about the first look and when they finally saw each other dressed up, the look on their faces tell it out.  You could see happiness, excitement and a sense of calm on their faces when they saw each other for the first time.  It was great.

After that, everything just went perfectly.  Jim and his groomsmen were all dressed up in the Marine uniforms and Alexis and her bridesmaids were flawless.  I loved everything about this wedding from their first look, the sword ceremony to bring the reception, and Alexis and Jim dancing on stage with the band.  It was perfect and I’m glad that Alexis and Jim choose me and my staff to be a small part of their day.  Please enjoy their closing montage above and a few photos from their rehearsal dinner and wedding day.

Meagan and Ryan were married on March 3 in Slidell and it was one of the most relaxing weddings I’ve ever filmed as a wedding professional.  Both of them were calm and just ready for their wedding to begin.  It was a beautiful day and I was excited that Meagan choose Brianna, Janell, and I to film their wedding and reception after.  Congratulations to both Meagan and Ryan

“I know her” was the common theme of the night when I first met Robert and Caroline during their wedding consultation.  Almost every video sample I showed Robert and Caroline, she would say “I know her”  It became even more comical when I showed her photos on my iPad and she kept saying I know her, her too.  Caroline basically knew about 3/4 of all my brides.

To add to the six degrees of separation, she played volleyball in high school and played against my brother  during her playing days and even knows some of my contacts in my volleyball coaching circles.  It was pretty amazing and neat that we had so much in common from brides to volleyball.  I knew that this would be a perfect match between us and me.

On Father’s Day, I met Robert and Caroline for their engagement session at Audubon Park and it was a picture perfect day.  We took photos all over the park and even managed to hop on the golf course to snap a few on the green.  It was a great day and I even got to met Robert’s son and take some photos of them on this Father’s Day.  It was perfect.

I can’t wait to get started on even more pre-wedding sessions with Robert and Caroline.  They are scheduled to get married on March 23, 2013 at St. Rosalie’s Church in Harvey.
