Make the Most out of Your New Orleans Photoshoot

Tip #1

The Best Time of Year to Visit New Orleans, USA

New Orleans is a city in the United States bursting with culture. If you’re the curious type, there are almost no wrong corners to turn in New Orleans. As a first-timer in New Orleans, you may find yourself overwhelmed with things to do and places to see, and you may wind up extending your stay or, booking a ticket for the same time next year! The city is alive with culture, music, history, and let’s not forget about the food.

Any season you plan on visiting New Orleans requires a New Orleans photographer to photograph your trip in this entertaining city. Here’s what to expect during each of New Orleans’ festive seasons. Believe it or not, there is more to New Orleans than Mardi Gras and Jazz. 

Tip #2

Visiting New Orleans in Spring

Springtime in New Orleans means great warm weather and endless amounts of festivals! You can book your trip around the Jazz festivals, Buku music and arts festival, and ‘Super Sunday’ New Orleans’ style, which entails Mardi Gras Indian tribes dressing in their colors and stripes while marching down the streets of New Orleans. You won’t want to spend a minute indoors, instead, you’ll want to hire a New Orleans photographer to capture you while you’re glowing with life around the intoxicating (literally) streets filled with endless surprises. 

If you arrive in early spring, then you may catch New Orleans before the big heatwave hits. The airy temperatures make for a picture-perfect time to explore all of the old houses, which have been marked as historical sites, to preserve New Orleans rich history and culture.

Visit the Pitot house, the 1939 Longue Vue house and gardens, the Victorian Beauregard-Keyes house and spend the night drinking Old World wines, and delicious cheese in the backyard of Bacchannal Fine Wine and Spirits. Your New Orleans professional photographer can photograph you on the quintessential Luisina porches that wrap around both the first and second-floor homes with colorful window shutters and blossoming flowers.

Tip #3

Visiting New Orleans in Summer

Whatever season may be, you will certainly spend some time exploring the French Quarter, even if it’s unbearably hot and sticky outside. You can take a break and lunch on New Orleans’ famous raw oysters or po-boys and drink classic cocktails down Bourbon Street, just make sure you do it in style.

If you’re ready to get into the New Orleans spirit, confidently strut down the colorful city streets in a funky costume, and make sure to have a personal photographer to capture your every move around Vieux Carré, where the scene is always bustling, especially in the throws of summer. 

In June you can catch the oyster festival, French Market Creole Tomato Fest and the Louisiana Cajun Zydeco Festival. Around July 4th weekend, you absolutely must go to the Essence Festival, the largest African-American music and culture festival in the world.

If the heat is too much for your southern spirit, then there are plenty of indoor activities for individuals, couples and the entire family. In the summer you have the privilege of sipping on your cool cocktail while you’re on the move from one shady spot to the next. But, if you want to cool down and relax on a rooftop during sunset, you can check out bars like the Hot Tin Rooftop Bar and get a complete view of the city. It may also be the moment to hire an engagement photographer, after a full day in the botanical gardens, to end your trip with an unforgettable moment!

Tip #4

Visiting New Orleans in Autumn

In Autumn, you will have a much more pleasant time cruising around the city than in the summertime. There are many fewer tourists and the humidity drastically drops.

Take a tour of the famous New Orleans’ above-ground cemetery, it’s really a must-see. Bring your family to the Tremé Fall Festival, and have a New Orleans family photographer while you taste the local food and buy local crafts. There are plenty of festivals all Autumn long in this culturally rich city. Depending on the dates of your trip you can catch the Beignet Fest, celebrating New Orleans most famous dessert, or head to the Crescent City Blues and BBQ Festival at Lafayette Square at the end of October, and there are plenty of other festivals around Halloween time, all the way up to Christmas. 

If you’re feeling brave and curious you can book a trip to visit New Orleans’ famous swamps and keep your eyes open for wild boars and alligators down the Mississippi Delta.

Of course, since you’re in New Orleans, you won’t be able to avoid live music opportunities. You can find jazz brunches, live music in the parks, or live music in too many bars to name. Autumn may also be the best season to hire an affordable photographer during your stay in such a vastly entertaining city.

If you want a good starting point to enter the city, try Jackson Square, where you can have your portrait painted, your fortune told, and listen to live music all at once, imagine that! Check out some of New Orleans best graffiti in Bywater and then spend your day in City Park, where there is a carousel, tennis courts, concerts and Christmas lights illuminating the park during evening hours for the coming season.

Tip #5

Visiting New Orleans in Winter

If you’re looking for a winter escape, then New Orleans is certainly the place to get lost in the sun. Stroll down Magazine street to check out some of New Orleans’ finest boutiques, cafes, and galleries. And, even though New Orleans may not have the coldest winters, you’re still allowed to excuse yourself by overindulging in the New Orleans dynamic dishes and sweet and savory flavors. Take a streetcar ride and jump off as soon as you see the restaurant of your choice. If you’re in New Orleans during Christmas time you’ll absolutely have to reserve a night for a Reveillon Dinner and then stay for New Year to catch the fireworks over the Mississippi River. 

And, finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for, Mardi Gras. Book some of New Orleans best photographers well in advance if you’re visiting Louisiana this winter. There are parades and parties all month long, leading up to the big day, so you can have your New Orleans photoshoot days before the true chaos reigns. Then your photographer can send you some of your pictures to upload to your Instagram account, this way your followers can see that fantastic costume you’ve adorned yourself in to blend in or stand out, during Mardi Gras season. Take a bite of King cake before it’s too late and then get ready for Valentine’s day, which is right around the corner. Hire an anniversary photographer to capture you two under gas lamp-lit streets and under the spell of New Orleans’ charm. Find out the best prices for your private New Orleans’ Photographer HERE
