About 1216 STUDIO LLC

New Orleans Wedding Photography 1216 STUDIO Emotions & Individualized Beauty

      We are Daryl and Elizabeth Thornton, otherwise known as the life loving, hubby/wifey photography team behind 1216 Studio. To say we enjoy what we do is a massive understatement. We LOVE our calling and we live and breathe weddings. Something not only beautiful but a bit magical happens on wedding days. All of the emotions, smiles, laughter, dancing, happy tears, and love are what drives us. You can call us cheesy all day long but we feel all of it when we shoot and we want you to look at your wedding album and feel the joy of your day over and over again. Our passion for displaying emotions and individualized beauty aims to do just that. Provide you with emotion-injected memories that will last. 

   Every wedding is different and we will not treat you like just another Bride and Groom. Your love story and your life as a couple are unique and perfect and deserve to be captured with individualized attention and care. But on that note, we are SUPER laid back and ready to have a great time with you both (and your friends and family!).

As Mother of the Bride, I can promise Elizabeth & Daryl to be the most talented, honest, loyal, dedicated, modern/classic/creative, hardworking and fun-loving couple you could work with in the city of NOLA for your wedding and bridal shoots. You may find many good photographers, but I assure Elizabeth and Daryl are the most dedicated and reliable.....they were there for us on 10/7 while "whimpy" storm Nate scurried out of NOLA quickly; almost ALL OTHER VENUES & VENDORS were cancelling weddings all over the city, 1216 Studio were the first to call us SAT am to assure us hurricane or not, they would be their to photograph our daughters wedding and they were...any mother or father can understand the importance of having attentive & committed vendors and especially on a day like 10/7/17 when a hurricane is threatening to destroy your daughter's most treasured day. They even offered to return at no charge on Sunday if we wanted some outdoor shots not available to us on Saturday...amazing work ethic and kindness. Because of Studio 1216 and Hotel Monteleone, who also made things happen to make our special day possible, we were the ONLY night time wedding to take place in New Orleans (no thanks to the public officials who could have lifted the pointless curfew hours earlier as the storm changed courses). Amazing photos, extremely responsive the entire year prior to the wedding each time I called or emailed; creative, always flexible; never rushed during photo sessions....anything we needed or asked for, they were willing to accommodate. I promise, this couple is a FIRST CLASS team that will not disappoint. We are eternally grateful to Daryl & Elizabeth....true professionals and now our friends.

I cannot express enough how much I love Daryl & Elizabeth's work. Before I contacted them I could tell by their website that they were experienced and professional photographers. Then once we met with them and they photographed our engagement shoot we knew we had hit the jackpot. They have an infectious energy that really makes the taking the pictures a great experience. Their eye(s) for detail and artistic expression are unmatched a truly comes through on every single picture. We could tell that they really understood our personalities and the theme of our wedding and the pictures are the proof. We have so many amazing pictures from our big day and are so pleased we chose 1216 studios to capture some amazing moments. Our only regret is that we didn't add-on the videography!
