Alaina and Jonathan wanted to not only celebrate their upcoming wedding but also the New Year with their engagement portrait session. Their plan was to send out Save the Date cards that doubled as a Happy New Year greeting to their friends and family. So we used a glitter-filled,champagne drenched,festive theme for their photos. They’re amazing wedding planner, Kelley Mitchell of Nola Weddings and Events was standing by with all the necessary props- sparkly confetti, cold champagne, and gold balloons. The wind didn’t exactly want to play along in our confetti-tossing scheme and a park security guard attempted to shoo us from the perfect spot to get the New Orleans skyline as a backdrop. But we prevailed and the couple got an adorable set of Engagement photos to share with their loved ones. Their Save the Date cards are actually pop-ups! Way cool. These guys tie the knot June 18th!
