Louisiana-New Orleans


Hi guys! We are getting married next April in New Orleans, and I am working on nailing down a photographer. My mom is having a hard time justifying a price (we are looking at 2 right now - one is about $2900 with an assistant and a proof book, the other is quoting $3600+ with an assistant and 2 glossy coffee table books). We are probably needing about 8 hours of coverage.

Does anyone know a good quality photographer in the area that might run a little bit cheaper? Basically, I'm trying to see if this is even possible. Good photography is important to me, but I'd like to appease my mother if possible.

    We used Matt Foster and absolutely loved him. We also looked into Eau Photo and Sam Gregory. I think they were all around $2,000.

    Have you checked out Photography by Louis?  http://www.photobylouis.com/8-)/index.cfm They were originally recommended to us by a photographer-friend, and we wound up booking him.  We were definitely pleased with his prices.  He's done a few friends' weddings--seems like a really nice guy.  Might be something looking into!!  :)  Good luck!

    We are using Dark Roux Photography for our June 4th wedding.  They are a husband and wife team with affordable prices.  We absolutely loved our engagement photos and had so much fun with them during our session.  You should check them out!

    My photographer is Brenda Sison.  She is awesome and very reasonable.  She also has a package where you can get a flush mount album.  Also a second photographer.  What I liked about her is that she doesnt have a time limited.  She is there from the time you tell her to start until you leave your reception.  You should definitely check her out.  brendasisonphotography.com

    I got married last month and we used Babs Evangelista.  She was absolutely wonderful!  She has such a great personality and super creative.  I was leery about finding a photog as I planned everything from California.  If you book Babs you will be carefree, I promise!  I was on a tight budget as well and she created a package that worked PERFECTLY and then some.  I can't say enough good things about her - she and the pictures she took truly made our wedding day special!

    Matthew Foster! I paid about $2300 for 8 hours, 4x6 proofs of all the pictures (we ended up with about 800) and he was great. Albums cost extra but he has a lot of options! You're welcome to look at our pictures, the website is
