Heavily influenced by my career as a published musician, medical student, and visual artist, I bring an artistic perspective to my work as a wedding photographer. With more than 10 years of experience in visual arts and media, I pivot my creative process to more personal photographic areas – incorporating fashion photography and a natural keel to my wedding collections, personal portraits, and special occasions. Ultimately, these diverse paths allow me to transcend my photography into “art for art’s sake” and artfully capture the defining moments of your life to a quality not often seen.
Likewise, my past is further broadened as a touring music artist (Luxley), epicurean, sommelier, and renaissance-man about town, bolstered by a wide-ranging education including medical school, foreign language, and poetry.
Ever the perfectionist, I make a considerable investment in every commission to ensure the highest quality result.
The Historic Swoop-Duggins House, located in a historic three-story, three-bay, brick house with an attached two-story service wing located in New Orlean’s CBD, offers a private, second floor exclusively for events complete with private entry. For larger events, or guests wishing for a progressive event experience, you may opt to also include the courtyard as well as the entire first floor, Swoop’s dining room and bar, as part of your event.
The Historic Swoop-Duggins House’s event space can be privately accessed by both its own beautiful wooden staircase as well as the courtyard, both leading to the immaculately decorated rooms on the second floor. Rich colors and ornate fabrics complement the artwork that adorns the walls as well as the multiple fireplaces. The “gallery” (a balcony spanning the depth of an entire sidewalk and the full length of the building) allows guests to experience the sites and sounds of New Orleans during your event.
The space at The Historic Swoop-Duggins House provides your guests with a unique event experience in that not only do you have access to the second floor during your event, you have the option to utilize the courtyard as part of your event.
