Vacation Fun with the Morse, Rooney and Lee Families. Working vacations do not get any better than this! We were privileged to have enjoyed seven fun filled days sailing on the Carnival Dream out of the port of New Orleans taking family and couples portraits. From the moment we arrived on the cruise ship, we knew that we were in store for exciting times with this great group. After navigating through some rough seas, compliments of tropical storm Cindy, it was smooth sailing with sun filled skies and warm breezes for the remainder of the trip. With three amazing ports of call, Roatan, Belize and Cozumel, there were plenty of activities to choose from. From scuba diving and snorkeling to carefree relaxation on the sandy white beaches, fun was had by all. We had a wonderful time, made new friends, and enjoyed capturing many of the families’ moments that matter. Here are a just a few of our favorite images from the trip.

Jesse & Judy Wedding Proposal Amidst Southern Oak Trees – As New Orleans wedding photographers, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of so many emotional moments in loving couples lives. This was recently the case when we worked with Jesse and Judy. Jesse contacted us last month about his plans to surprise Judy with a proposal of marriage at Oak Alley Planation.
A beautiful spring afternoon and a gorgeous high school senior. What a great combination! We had a great time photographing Caroline for her Senior Portrait Session this past Friday. The first stop on our tour of the city started out in the New Orleans Arts District. So much culture and history made this a perfect spot to get the creative juices flowing. It didn’t take long to realize how easy this young lady was to work with. She was relaxed, yet confident and focused. Her ability to create a variety of facial expressions from intense and seductive, to relaxed and carefree, was impressive. A simple word or two and she would deliver striking poses like a pro. With so many interesting nooks and crannies, it was easy to find excellent backdrops to compliment her outfits and accentuate her beauty. After wrapping up in the area formerly known as the Warehouse District, we made a brief stop in the French Quarter for a few additional images. Finally, we headed to City Park to finish out the session. We arrived just as the sun dropped low in the sky, casting wonderful light on the moss strewn Oak Trees in the park. It was the prefect place to round out a fun filled afternoon of photography. Caroline will soon be graduating from Mount Carmel and then it’s off to the University of Alabama. We offer our heartfelt congratulations and best wishes for continued success to this amazing young lady.
As wedding photographers covering all of Southeast Louisiana, sharing in the joys of loving couples as they commit their lives to one another is a privilege that we never take for granted. This past Saturday, we left New Orleans for Houma to photograph the wedding of Jamie and Sandie. This amazing couple contacted us several months ago for a consultation. After spending a few moments chatting with them, it was obvious that this couple was truly in love and committed to a happy and healthy relationship. We were thrilled when they chose us to capture the images that they will reflect upon for years to come. When I sat down to write about this wedding, three words instantly came to mind…Joy Filled Moments. These three powerful words are a fitting description for their big day. No detail was left to chance and the wedding venue was decorated artfully with so many personal touches. Observing the union of not just a happy couple but of two families joining as one is a always a wonderful experience. As they exchanged their vows, one look around the room made it clear that delight was shared by all in attendance, including their wonderful children. Our favorite moments during the evening were when we were able to steal the newly married couple away for a few minutes for some couples portraits. The sun was low in the sky and provided just the right amount of light to accentuate the passion shared by this great couple. Thanks to Jamie and Sandie for choosing Fradella Photography and best wishes for a bright and prosperous future. It is our pleasure to share just a few of the happy couples’ “Moments that Matter.”
