Where do we even start with this one? Sara and Jonathan are an amazing couple and it seems like we go way back. Sara first contacted us back in 2008, and we kept in touch while they explored all options for their wedding date. Sara is quite the photographer herself, and she was looking for one that was a little less traditional than most in Mobile. We hit it off from the beginning and knew her wedding was going to be fantastic. Jonathan proposed in New Orleans, so we were more than excited to go to the Big Easy for an engagement session with them last Fall. It was a beautiful afternoon, so we took advantage of the weather and had a great time waling the French Quarter. One thing we love about Mobile (we both grew up there) is how much the downtown area resembles New Orleans. For their wedding this past May, they chose a beautiful location in the heart of Mobile that really has that French Quarter feel. If you didn’t know any better, you would probably think it was New Orleans just looking at the photos. The beautiful brick courtyard was a perfect place for the ceremony with plenty of room to party for the reception. I think we can both say it’s one of our favorite new Mobile venues.

We’ll start with a few engagement photos from New Orleans
The woman singing on the left is a New Orleans attraction herself and has an amazing soulful voice. It was an experience to hear her…. Nothing to see here officer…. move along. A few wedding details including that beautiful dress… The backdrops are amazing as well. The red wallpaper in the dining room was beautiful…. Since photos were so important to Sara, she and Jonathan saw each other prior to the wedding to give us a lot more time….
The girls were sporting some bright wraps and having a lot of fun…
But the guys had their own ideas for fun portraits….
This still cracks me up looking at it. Apparently the ring was forgotten upstairs until line-up time for the ceremony. Sara looks so mean here, but it was pretty hilarious…
The priests were checking out the guests through the window… Two beautiful ladies right here…
That cake and the food were ridiculously amazing!
Just a wonderful ambiance as the sun was setting….
When you’re honeymooning in NYC, there’s only one way to leave a wedding!This was the first wedding we tested ShootShed on and it was a major success!
