Nottoway Plantation New Orleans

One of the South's grand plantations made the perfect backdrop for this photo shoot in NOLA!

We’ve been going to NOLA for many years, shooting on location at Nottoway Plantation on the remote banks of the mighty Mississippi River was like living in a dream. Each photo we took had this soft glow that was native to the mansions design and decor. Our favorite location was in the White Room, with it’s simplicity and splendor, it allowed us to capture images that could be photographed in almost perfect, dreamy light. As you can see in our behind the scenes inspirational video, the mood was grand and romantic. Shooting in such an historic location is what makes a Southern Bride dream of her wedding day. The inspirational film launches along with the 2013 summer edition of Southern Bride Magazine. The fashion film shows the latest dresses from designers such as Claire Pettibone and Olia Zavozina Couture. Capturing the romance and timeless beauty of the Plantation set on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, the crew of Southern Bride helped Michael set the style of the film and created a vintage dream that will inspire thousands of brides across the South.
