Great Wedding Photography Ideas In New Orleans

Nov 3, 2007
If you're getting married in New Orleans, why go with the same old wedding shots? There are so many great photography opportunities in the "Crescent City." You just have to get out of the chapel and find the right spot. Here are some great wedding photography locations in New Orleans.

On The Mississippi Riverfront

The riverfront area of New Orleans was not always as nice to look at as it is today. This is because of a renovation project started in the 1970's to improve it. They have since added Woldenberg Park and the Moonwalk, two great places for scenic pictures.

Woldenberg Park is a large open field where you can take your pictures on the grass with the Mississippi gently rolling in the background.

The Moonwalk is a plaza that goes along the edge of the river. In the background, you can see the calm waters of the river, the bridges and the distant shore. On the land side, there are stately historic buildings for background.

Another great riverfront spot is Spanish Plaza with its giant fountain. The fountain was a gift from Spain, and it makes a great backdrop for a picture, along with real Mississippi riverboats docked behind it.

If you really want to get out on the river, you can take the Natchez, an old Mississippi steamboat that has been preserved and offers rides. You can have your photos taken rolling down the mighty Mississippi.

Among The Great Oaks Of City Park

New Orleans City Park is also a great place for bridal pictures. City Park has beautiful historic buildings, as well as bayous, bridges and lush greenery. It is also big enough that there are lots of places to choose from. It is also known for its large, old live oak trees.

Audubon Park also provides beautiful scenery. Audubon Park is a place for bridal pictures in a totally natural setting. It also has the Audubon Zoo, Aquarium of the Americas and other great sites.

The Fabulous Architecture Of The French Quarter

The French Quarter, with its renowned architecture and truly New Orleans feel, is one of the most popular places for wedding ceremonies and pictures in the city. One of the best spots in the French Quarter is Jackson Square, the famous park where New Orleans trained its troops for the war of 1812.

Today, the park is used just for civilians, and its authentic feel and lush green vegetation make it a perfect spot. Many couples get married at the St. Louis Cathedral, a grand landmark still used for weddings, and then take their photos in Jackson Square with the Cathedral in the background.

Everywhere in the French Quarter, you will find photo opportunities. The French and Spanish architecture give the French Quarter a romantic, European feel that is great for wedding photography.

New Orleans may be one of the best cities in the world for wedding photography.
Your Big Easy pictures will be as beautiful as they day itself!
