New Orleans Engagement Session in the French Quarter

Sometimes in life, we overlook the best things for us, even when they’re right in front of our faces. This was the case with Laura and Ben who were next door neighbors while growing up, but who never really hung out together, even though they shared the same friends.  It took this couple 14 years after graduating high school to meet again and realize they were meant for each other.

While vacationing on the Carolina coast, Laura and Ben finished up their trip in Charleston, SC, which has a rich history. It began as a colonial seaport in 1670.  In order to retain the original architecture after the damage of the Civil War, Charleston chose to repair its buildings rather than tear them down and rebuild, thus preserving their beauty for generations to come.  And since history is what this couple already shares, they decided it was time to start building on that.

Laura, a high school physical education teacher for the past 12 years, and Ben, a salesman, chose to celebrate their engagement in New Orleans where they could indulge their love of food and drinks. The couple also loves to travel and has not only traveled throughout the U.S., but has visited several countries as well.  They love the outdoors and spend their weekends hiking, biking, kayaking, or fishing, although Laura says Ben is the real fisherman.  She just likes to tag along.  They both enjoy music and visiting local breweries when traveling.

While strolling through the New Orleans’ French Quarter celebrating their engagement, the couple paused for photos in Jackson Square with the famous St. Louis Cathedral as their backdrop. Sitting on a bench beneath a sign that read, “Witchcraft & Magick,” you could see that this couple was under the spell of love.  They stopped for a cocktail, and then headed to the Riverwalk for a sunset kiss on the mighty Mississippi.  And what better place to wrap up their special day than on Royal Street next to the Forever boutique sign with the city lights shining down on them lighting their way to their forever together.
