Megan and Mike's Naches wedding at American Homestead was just a dream. Megan grew up in Yakima, Washington, while Mike hails from Alabama. (He and I worked at The Crimson White, The University of Alabama's student-run newspaper, together back in college—roll tide!) Guests from Washington, Alabama, and elsewhere celebrated together in Mike's second home-away-from-home. What a night!
We had excitedly agreed to do Megan's bridal portraits in the Jean Lafitte swamp, but imagine my surprise when I met her where she'd been getting ready at a family friend's house in Algiers. The dense, haphazard foliage on the property was something I'd expect to see in my home state of Alabama, not in the outskirts of New Orleans.
