A Big Easy Wedding

Photography by Jeff + Jenn

Of all the places that I’ve ever visited in the States, New Orleans is by far one of my favourites – the music, the food, the hospitality – all simply amazing.  So needless to say, I was very excited when Morgan and Mike contacted me to shoot their evening wedding in the middle of beautiful New Orleans City Park. Much like the city, their reception was an explosion of color backed by the sounds of the phenomenal New Orleans brass funk rock band Bonerama who, according to Morgan, “always takes her to a happy place!” … but what I loved the most was that behind all of the color, glitz and fireworks was a great couple surrounded by a wonderful supporting cast of characters, and Jenn and I had a blast getting to know each and every one of them.  Mike and Morgan – thank you for trusting us with your day … cheers from your friends in Nova Scotia.

    Jeff and Jenn, what can I say? These photos are SO beautiful and even more than I could've imagined. I cannot wait to see more of our wedding through your lenses and be even more overwhelmed. The two of you not only have created the memories that I will carry of my wedding forever – exceeding all of our expectations – you also kept me sane and, I hope, together we've started a friendship that will continue as long as our memories. Let's get together soon and find more ways to work together!

    Jeff and Jen - your photos are amazing! I learnt about your photography business when you photographed my cousin, Jason, and his new wife Allison's wedding this past summer. It was incredible, and I was amazed by all the work you both put into it. Although I'm not planning to get married for another 2 years - I already have you on my list for photographer. I feel as though I would be able to trust you with capturing every magical moment of the special day. Again - your photos blow my mind. Awesome work guys!

    I've no idea how ya'll managed to capture how it felt to be there, to be part of the incredible celebration that was my best friends' wedding. I know I'm not alone in being thankful that the two of you shared those days with us - and not just because the photos are incredible! We are absolutely going to hold you both to your promises to come down for Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, or any other excuse we can help you create! Thank you for everything.
