• 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.

While all of the brides I photograph are queens in my book- today’s blog post is an official, for real beauty queen.  Jacqueline reigned as Miss New Orleans in 2013.  I was honored when she chose me to be her wedding photographer, considering how much experience she had in front of the camera.    We photographed in City Park- the botanical garden and around the New Orleans Museum of Art.  It was a chilly day but Jacqueline smiled beautifully throughout the shoot and was a true joy to photograph.   Here are my favorites from her bridal portrait session.

Jackson Square, in the heart of the French Quarter, is a really popular spot for surprise marriage proposals.  The St. Louis Cathedral rising dramatically above the beautifully landscaped park is a dramatic backdrop for one of life’s most dramatic moments.  Naturally I was thrilled when Arthur asked me to be there for his proposal to Alexis on their New Year’s Eve trip to New Orleans.  Two of their dear friends were on hand to witness the moment and help the couple celebrate.  Many photos and instagrams occurred to share the moment with the folks back east.  I’m sure they had hundreds of likes by the time our hour long photo shoot was over.  Here are some of my favorites from the surprise proposal photography session.

Some say New Orleans wedding photographers have all the fun.  They’re right!  For Cassie’s bridal portrait session I had the opportunity to photograph a stunning woman in a beautiful dress in a variety of inspiring locations.  We began the session at Race and Religious, then headed over to St. Joseph’s church.  Next up was Bellocq, followed by the J.W. Marriott hotel.  Here are some of my favorite pictures from Cassie’s bridal portrait session.
