We can’t thank you enough!!!
NOLA Wedding – Life, Love, & Roddy
AMAZING! I don’t even know where to begin. Destination wedding in NOLA. My wife was in charge of music. I was in charge of pictures. After a lot of soul searching and hours and hours of combing through random wedding pictures from random photographers online, we settled on a few photographers to interview. When the dust settled, I chose Roddy and couldn’t have been happier with my decision. All the things you would expect from a photographer: he was very accommodating, very professional, very friendly, and of course very talented……..but that isn’t what separates Roddy from the rest. Roddy showcased the intangibles as well – a consideration for composition, lighting, and perspective. A great vision for a picture opportunity before it happens. The fantastic artistic element that he puts into his images were second to none. The ability to position himself into the party atmosphere without being in the way but still engaging and charismatic enough that all of our guests were happy to engage with him. Patterns, colors, and style definitely take him from just being an ordinary photographer and moreso into the range of an artist. I see now why he wins countless awards; and like any good artist I imagine a good deal of preparation, thought, skill, and hard work went into honing his craft. The creativity he took with the finished product was absolutely amazing. My guests LOVED the pictures. My wife LOVED the pictures. I LOVED the pictures. We share them with everybody and in turn evert single person comments on just how well done and unique our pictures are. I’m not typically a review-writing kind of guy, but I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to toot this guy’s horn. I would absolutely recommend Roddy Orgeron Photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Without a doubt: 5 Star praise.
Wow!!!! I can’t express enough how thrilled and satisfied we were with how amazing our engagement photos turned out and what a wonderful experience we had taking the photos with Roddy. My fiancé and I Love New Orleans and even though we are getting married in Barbados chose to have are wedding pictures taken in New Orleans. I knew I wanted something artistic and unique, and for weeks I looked through numerous websites at different photographers. It wasn’t until I happened across Roddy’s site did I find what I was looking for. I was truly amazed by his talent and knew I was making the right choice in choosing him as our photographer…. but, when I saw the photos for the first time I never imagined they could be better than what I had imagined!!!! We were blown away by his ability to capture each special moment in such a unique artistic way. We had so much fun taking the pictures, getting to know Roddy, stopping for a drink, all while wondering around the city capturing such special moments in time. I’m not sure if the actual wedding can top this!! Thank you again Roddy for the amazing photos and absolute wonderful experience. Ashley and Greg
Roddy is AMAZING!!! Professional and so much fun! He knew exactly what we wanted and more. He anticipated what we needed or wanted and he was completely flexible – he even drove the groom and best man to the ceremony when the limo was late. Such a nice guy. The pictures were INCREDIBLE. I could not have asked for more. Also, his turn-around is 2 weeks! We got the pictures before we even got back from our honeymoon! Best wedding photographer in New Orleans.
Great New Orleans Photographer!
We researched several photographers for our wedding this past March and they were either too expensive or we were not impressed by their portfolios. Then we came across Roddy Orgeron’s website through The Knot. We immediately loved his style of photography and his packages were in our budget! From the first time Roddy and I spoke to even after the wedding, he was always so friendly, professional and helpful! He made us feel very comfortable before and on the day of the wedding. It was also great to have 2 people photographing instead of one. Our guests were even saying how great a job our photographer did because they were everywhere snapping away! We got our pictures back exactly when he said we would, we did not have to “chase” him down like I have heard other people having to do. We were so pleased at how the pictures came out and how many we got! We could not be happier with our choice in Roddy! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great photographer!
New Orleans Elopement
My husband and I decided to elope in New Orleans…it’s one of our favorite cities in the entire world, and having been there twice before we knew wanted to elope there. Capturing great photographs of our wedding was very important to us, because when all is said and done – that’s all we’ll have to share with our loved ones as nobody else was there with us.
I looked at some different photographers online and Roddy Orgeron Photography is the only one that grabbed my attention. I’ve been a make up artist for almost 20 years and have quite a bit of experience with lots and lots of photographers. I have a very good eye for good work, and I knew immediately that I wanted Roddy to capture our special day. Thankfully he was available – it was short notice, less than 3 weeks out – but because we were eloping on a Friday afternoon, we lucked out with Roddy! After a few long distance telephone chats, I got a good vibe from him. He was easy going, professional, and really nice. We decided to book him!
We met him for the first time AT our wedding! lol. He made us laugh, we felt so relaxed with him, he was just an all-around great guy! He showed us a few pictures on the camera as he went, and we were both very impressed. We booked him for 3 hours, and after the ceremony we walked all over the French Quarter, taking pictures. My only regret is not having booked him for an additional hour or two. Seriously – he was that good.
We got our pictures back last week – in only 4 weeks, and I can’t say enough good things. Almost 300 amazing photographs and I can’t wait to build my wedding album with them! If you’re looking to elope in New Orleans, or even have a traditional French Quarter Wedding – no matter how you’re getting hitched, if you’re in the New Orleans area, I highly implore you to contact Roddy. He really IS that good! The pictures REALLY captured our love for each other, and the essence of New Orleans is quite visible in most of the pictures. We are so happy that we booked Roddy!
Amazing Wedding Photographer!
Wedding photos are a big deal, so I wanted to make sure I got a great photographer without spending half of my budget. Roddy was definitely an amazing photographer who captured the day perfectly without costing an arm and leg! I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to make sure they have great photos for their big day.
Roddy was great to work with during the planning process and on the day of the wedding. He genuinely cares about what’s important to the couple and what they want to have captured at the wedding and reception. Roddy works very hard and the finished product truly shows his hard work and creativity. We are overly pleased with our bridal portraits and wedding pictures. I will recommend Roddy Orgeron Photography to all of my friends in the area!
Amazing talent, great personality, fantastic results!
This guy not only understood what I was going for, he was able to enhance the entire experience and leave me with better memories than I could have imagined.
My husband doesn’t like having his photo taken and he sure as hell doesn’t like to pose for strangers. 5 minutes into our engagement shoot, Roddy was able to wrangle smiles out of him and now we have engagement shots that are not only cool but are wall-hanging-worthy. He brought out our true personalities and pushed us just enough to get the best shots but let us be ourselves. The guy is super talented, don’t get me wrong, but one of his biggest strengths is his personality and his ability to quickly read and understand his clients. This brings him to the next level and turns you and your vision into actual works of photographic art.
For the wedding, I kind of had a vision; I just didn’t know how to articulate it. I can’t imagine that I was easy to work with but he and his team were always professional, energetic and encouraging. They interpreted my desires and gave us exactly what wanted, even if I hadn’t known what to ask for. His style is crisp and vivid. He didn’t retouch, filter or edit heavily and his photojournalist style was such a welcome departure from the shabby-chic, pinterest-burlap-and-acorns style that is so pervasive in the wedding photo industry. That wasn’t our thing, so we were a good stylistic fit for him, but I was impressed beyond my expectations. The images were creative and thoughtful. His team was flexible and inventive. They interacted with the guests in a really positive way and we were thrilled to have them be part of the party!
He had the proofs to me quickly–less than two weeks. His pricing is low compared to others in town. I don’t know why, but I know that he could and probably should be charging a lot more than I paid. I cannot recommend Roddy enough. He has natural talent, impeccable instincts and fantastic delivery. You’ll regret not booking this guy–I am so glad I did!
