Have you ever been to New Orleans? This city has a heart and it beats very similar to David and I’s. We can talk about the food, the drink, the fun… And of course that’s all part of it’s hold on us. But honestly there’s something more. There’s an incredible dance between the wild things and the refined. There’s a vulnerable authenticity. There’s no need to hide or feel shame. There’s a communal strength that connects a rich history with the blood sweat and tears of rebuilding a city. A pride found in the heart of belonging. It’s intoxicating (in more ways than one).
David and I had the privilege of shooting an engagement session in New Orleans this past spring and it did not disappoint. Ben and Katie are the reason that New Orleans feels like home. They are the type of people that would drop anything to show you the best time of your life. Ben and Katie have a perfectly refined aesthetic and pallet. As we walked the streets early in the morning and stepped over what Katie referred to as “party gravy” I just had to laugh at the marriage between the refined and the wild. Ben and Katie are the perfect image of wild elegance.
