“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.” ― Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever
There couldn’t be a better saying about love, especially for Ashley and Liz. This beautiful couple from Thibodaux, Louisiana have been together for years. Ashley planned a special day for Liz in the beloved city of New Orleans but she left out the little, tiny part about proposing to her! Ashley brought Liz to their favorite location in the French Quarter in front of the Maison Royale at the corner of Royal and St. Louis where they go dancing and listen to the live street bands with their friends. They got their closest friends together and went out. Ashley was so nervous that Liz would see the ring sticking out in her pocket! When they got to their favorite spot they all started dancing until the band started playing Ashley and Liz’s favorite song (wonder who arranged that one). We had to sneak around and use the low light so Liz didn’t catch us. Ashley grabbed Liz and asked her to dance in the street where she proposed to the love of her life– and then we bombarded them with our flashes!
This scene was absolutely incredible to witness. We love the romantic ambiance that the French Quarter brings to proposals, weddings and even sweet date nights. From the mixture of French and chic architecture to the colorful bokeh the street signs create, the French Quarter is the perfect place for any kind of night portraits. We are so thrilled that we were able to be the photographers there to capture this Surprise French Quarter Proposal! It’s French Quarter Proposal Photography like this one that help us love what we do more and more.
