New Orleans Engagement Session in the French Quarter
Aleecia and Khiry are such a gem of a couple! When I first heard their engagement story I almost couldn’t believe how thoughtful and romantic it was. Khiry took Aleecia on a totally random and surprise trip out of town. When they decided they should “probably pull over and try and find a place to stay for the night” Khiry checked them into a quaint bed and breakfast and proposed to Aleecia surrounded by candles and roses. I don’t think anybody can top that! Whenever I hear a story like that I can’t help but think that they must be really, truly happy together.
Not only are these two exceptionally sweet together, they also really know how to have a good time together; they like taking it easy at home, watching baseball, traveling and having game nights.
On the day of their engagement session we had some unexpected rain, but it seemed like fate was on our side when the skies cleared just in time for our session! I was able to use the rainy atmosphere creatively, which brought a lot of character to these photos. Their reflection in the rain puddles makes for a unique look that tells a story about the day. We strolled through the French Quarter and utilized all of the character that the city of New Orleans has to offer.
Cheers to Aleecia and Khiry! You two are the best!
