Tess and Danny: New Orleans City Park Elopement



filed in


I have met so many sweet couples thanks to this career. And every last one of them has left me thankful I get to do the job I do. But every once in a while a ceremony just leaves me overwhelmed with love and gratitude. Recently that ceremony was Tess and Danny’s. I’m not sure if it’s because we were talking and planning their special day for so long, but it felt like we were old friends when the day arrived. And as they laughed and cried through their vows, twirled under the oaks and walked along the tracks I was once again overcame with gratitude for this job.

Seven years ago Danny and Tess connected and when he saw her it was like she was the only girl in the room. They talked all night long forgetting all about the party going on around them. And when they decided to get married they just knew they wanted something small. The more they planned the more they realized an elopement was perfect for them. And I’m so glad they did because they’re just absolute sweethearts and I’m so honored I had the pleasure of capturing their special day!

Below are some of my favorites from their golden hour elopement in City Park. Almost a week later and these two still have me swooning!

A surprise visitor decided to stop by for a photo and I think it was the perfect way to end their session.

Congratulations Tess and Danny! It was truly my pleasure to serve y’all and I can’t wait to see what the future brings you two!

Wishing you a lifetime of love and laughter,
❤️ Ashley
