Stephanie + Haydel | Audubon Park Engagement

engaged couple strolls through oak trees in audubon park

I’m officially in New Orleans!

To be honest, taking photos in a new location always freaks me out. ALWAYS. Stephanie and Haydel are literally the cutest couple and I was SO excited to meet them! But of course a bit nervous considering I’ve never photographed at Audubon Park in New Orleans. I don’t know why but I always just feel like I will forget everything I know. Clearly, not the case though! 😜

When Haydel and Stephanie pulled up, I walked over and was super excited to see their ADORABLE puppies!! Carlisle (an Italian Greyhound) and Doug (a Dachshund) were clearly excited too. They were so cute!! The whole time I kept wanting to call the Italian Greyhound Kermie-wormy like Jenna Marbles’ dog, LOL! The pups did so well and I’m so glad they brought them along to their session!

Haydel and Stephanie took to posing right away (nailed itttt) and were so friendly! I had the best time walking around and getting a little tour of the gorgeous Audubon Park. There were SOOO many spots I wanted to stop at for more photos but being close to sunset, I had to work quickly. I literally can not wait to go back to this stunning park!

This stunning couple is super photogenic! I can only imagine how amazing their wedding photos will be! Their wedding is only a month away and I’m BEYOND EXCITED!

Congratulations, Stephanie & Haydel!

    I believe New Orleans will allow you to become a very sought-after photographer and even one of the best in the city. With it’s many backdrops, from the 1800’s to present day, you will have a new canvas to apply your talents to. Good Luck, Ashley!
