• WELCOME

    Hello! Thank you for visiting the site. I am Babs Evangelista, a wedding photographer and portrait photographer based in New Orleans, Louisiana. Specifically the romantic and picturesque French Quarter, which you'll see as the background in much of the wedding photography and portrait photography on my blog. I am currently booking clients for 2015 and 2016. Please get in touch to arrange your photo shoot or to learn more about having me as your wedding photographer.

It was a rainy day.  The kind of day that haunts the nightmares of wedding photographers in New Orleans.  The kind of day that we know will inevitably happen every so often during our otherwise idyllic careers.  30 mile per hour winds and hail were the order of the day, and Allison and Ben were planning on eloping in the French Quarter with no way to share the moment with the folks back home besides the photographs taken by yours truly.  As luck would have it, it was dry upon my arrival at the Omni Royal Orleans, and we were able to pop out to Jackson Square for a couple of quick photos before the skies opened up again.  When the officiant arrived at their room for their brief wedding ceremony, the rain was in full swing.   The happy couple stood together on their covered balcony and exchanged vows with the sky falling around them.  It was incredibly romantic.  Here are some of my favorite moments of their wedding day:

Today’s photo of the day is from my work as a New Orleans wedding photographer.  It was another rainy day leading up to a wedding.  Tornadoes blew through town.  Water spouts were spotted in Lake Pontchartrain.  It was not a good scene.  Allison and Ben were all smiles all day, and we made the best of the rain that came down upon us for most of their elopement and portrait session.  Here is one of my favorite images from their wedding day.

Today’s blog post is from my work as a New Orleans Wedding Photographer.  Many folk spent Saturday glued to the weather apps on their phones, praying for the rain to go away.  It was a close call, but by the time Claire and Marcus’s wedding ceremony at Sacred Heart was over, the skies had cleared and we were able to second line over to their reception at the Orleans Club.  There was no rain on this parade.  Congratulations Claire and Marcus!

Today’s blog post is from my work as a wedding photographer in New Orleans.  20 years ago, I met Miriam when we co-starred in a production of Sleeping Beauty at Le Petit Theater.  She was the queen, I was the evil witch.  She continues to be amazing and has gone on to live in New York City and work in the theater.   I of course have ended up behind the scenes.   Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would be there to photograph her wedding and see her and the love of her life, Tricia, get to be queens for the day.  The brides prepared for the day at the colorful and exciting Renaissance Arts Hotel before heading over to the Bea Field Alumni House at Tulane University for their wedding ceremony and outdoor reception.  It was a zillion degrees, but Miriam and Tricia were even more radiant than the blazing sun as they exchanged vows in front of scores of well wishers.  The Palmetto Bug Stompers provided excellent entertainment, and performed equally fabulous renditions of The Second Line and Hava Nagila for a multicultural whirlwind of dancing.  It was a beautiful wedding day and I was absolutely honored to be a part of it.  Here are some of my favorite moments from the day:

Today’s blog post is from my work as a New Orleans wedding photographer.  Doug and Kiley’s wedding at the Wax Museum was a perfect New Orleans wedding.  I can’t wait to edit their photos and see all the other gems we captured.  In the meantime, here are a couple of beautiful moments that jumped out at me while I was uploading their wedding pictures.
