Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

Top 2 New Orleans Fine Art Wedding Photographers for 2020

Page Updated: January 30th, 2020

Would you love to find an artistic New Orleans fine-art photographer to document the details of your big day and to complement your unique love story with a creative flair? The Wedding Photojournalist Association can help! Documentary-style wedding photographers are, first and foremost, photographers — artists, in other words, whose medium is the still photograph. In the Artistic Guild competitions, WPJA members show off their creative talents for digitally enhanced still-lifes and fine-art detail photos.

Quarterly Artistic Guild contests for New Orleans fine-art wedding photography are held annually, entered and judged separately from the WPJA competitions held during the year. After each contest, we add another collection of award-winning detail images to our wedding photographer’s member profile galleries.

What could be better than the details of your carefully planned event captured by a top New Orleans fine art wedding photographer? Detail images generally are tighter framed shots on some of the day’s textures, and features, whether as arranged by the photographer or as they were found: dresses, gowns, suits, rings, linens, flowers, bouquets, cake, shoes, or champagne glasses. A collection of tightly cropped faces would likely also be a “details” shot if the surrounding context has been subdued to bring out the image’s artistic impact.
