One thing I suggest for anyone getting engagement (or wedding photos) done - use pinterest as much as possible prior to your shoot. Google poses, backdrops, props, etc. and pin it to an engagement board. When we arrived to the plantation, Austin asked if there were any specific shots we wanted and I pulled out my phone, showing him nearly 20 photos I liked from other couples at Oak Alley. This really helps the photographer get your vision and also means you will get photos you want.
Upon arriving at Oak Alley, Gabe ad I were both very nervous and awkward. Luckily for us, Oak Alley serves delicious and strong Mint Juleps, which we both promptly ordered and downed. Off we went!
This photo is the new background on my phone!
It was very hard to pick out favorites from the sneak peek! I can only imagine what will happen when we receive the full disk of photos! Here are a few other photos of Oak Alley Plantation that we loved.
