I live in Florida and when my husband and I decided to get married in New Orleans, I took on the huge burden of planning a destination wedding. Not having the money to hire a wedding planner (and wanting to experience planning first hand), it ...
took me months of research and leg work to find every single one of my vendors.
Eau Claire Photographics was mentioned to me by a friend in New Orleans at the very outset of my engagement. When I visited Eau Claire's website, the quality of the photos and unique style were immediately apparent. I was impressed and I had not yet even reached out to Sandra. When I did contact Sandra, I knew immediately that she was the wedding photographer for me. She is very knowledgeable (she helped me secure my videographer as well), patient, open to ideas, and amazingly artistic. She explained her pricing to me and what different packages included and I can honestly say that compared to other photographers in the New Orleans area, she gives the most bang for your buck. The wedding album that comes with the Whole Shebang package is GORGEOUS! I can't explain in words the quality and customization of Eau Claire's wedding albums.
Moreover, the day of the wedding, while my nerves were shot, Sandra reminded me to breath, she always had a smile on her face, and she got the most beautiful shots. Sandra really understood my personal vision for my wedding and she made sure to capture that vision. Sandra understands all different types of brides (classic, quirky, bohemian, etc.) and she caters to each specifically. My in-person meeting with Sandra days before my wedding (the first time we met actually), she took copious notes on what specific shots I wanted to get and how to plan out the day. She made sure that the day of the wedding would run smooth, and it did.
I truly can't thank Sandra and Sam enough. I highly recommend Eau Claire Photographics.
