Patricia, didn't know if she wanted to do a more formal around the town of New Orleans engagement session or one in the new home they just closed on! With that, I said, WHY not both!
And Both we did!
We started roaming around their favorite places in New Orleans.
I asked Patricia what is a random fact about Stuart and she said that he is a really good rapper, and knows the words to almost every rap song. So going to the Ponchatrain hotel, to take a photo with the Lil Wayne painting was for SURE on the list.
Stuart lived next door to Patricia, and use to always see her walking her dog around the neighborhood (Yes, classic girl next door situation!)
In the same neighborhood they met, they purchased their first home together, and these are some of my favorite in home portraits!
One of my favorite moments from their session is when I asked them to dance together in the kitchen, thinking they would slow dance and they started doing the silliest dance moves.
I love how personal Patricia and Stuart went with their engagement session! They really focused on the moments that they love about life right now before their marriage. I know when they look on these images years from now, they'll be able to see how much they adored each other and their life before marriage!
