Engagement Session in New Orleans
What more perfect day for an engagement session in New Orleans than one where it begins with the sun shining down on you from a cloudless sky and ends with a star-filled, royal blue evening sky above.
This is the beautiful day that Sarah and Josh got as they strolled the streets of New Orleans to celebrate this momentous time in their lives. Having met and become friends in college, the couple has now been together for six and a half years, although they’ve only been engaged for five months.
Josh chose to propose while they were on a holiday vacation in Honduras. When they were taking a sunset walk around the remote island of Pigeon Cay, they just happened upon a mysterious bottle with a message in it. The bottle contained a poem meant just for Sarah and, at the end of the poem, Josh gallantly went down on one knee and asked Sarah to be his wife. They had a romantic champagne dinner on the island before heading back to Roatan where they were staying. If someone ever asks this couple who they’d like to be stranded with on an island, it’s obvious the answer would be each other.
The couple hails from Texas and likes all kinds of music. They also enjoy good cocktails and wine, and think of themselves as “foodies” with an adventurous streak. Josh, who is a Business Development Manager, and Sarah, who works for a boutique consulting firm, love traveling, scuba diving, cooking, and spending time with their son.
For their engagement session, they spent time admiring each other and some colorful architecture in the city, and paused for a few intimate moments amid some of the city’s famous live oak trees. As music lovers, it seemed fitting that they should pose for some photos on the steps of the famous Marigny Opera House, referred to as the Church of the Arts, which hosts music, live theatre, and ballet.
As the sun set on this perfect day, the only thing that shown brighter than Sarah’s engagement ring was the glow being emitted from this couple’s eyes as they gazed at each other under the lights of the city.
