New Orleans Engagement with Maile Lani Photography

Brittany & Ricky certainly had a New Orleans engagement session to remember! Venturing alongside Maile Lani Photography, they attended a hot air balloon festival at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center... and it was awesome. Surrounded by tons of colorful grounded balloons, these two celebrated their engagement in such a special and unique way. We are in love!

Malie Lani shares...

"I'm crazy in love with hot air balloons. When I found out that there was going to be a hot air balloon festival in Gonzales, Louisiana, I knew I had to go. Then I got this crazy idea to photograph an engagement session at the balloon festival! I contacted one of my brides who lives nearby to see if she would be up for it, and lucky for me, she was! These pictures were taken during the 'balloon glow.' A balloon glow is where all of the balloons inflate, but stay attached to the ground. Then the pilots light the balloons, sometimes all together. It was the perfect end to the summer!"

Those nighttime pictures are out of this world! Congratulations, Brittany & Ricky! I hope we'll get a peek into your New Orleans wedding when the time is right. XO
