About April Renae Photography

My approach to photographing your wedding is informed by my passions of street photography and my training as a musician. My eyes and ears guide me to anticipate what might unfold and I hope to reveal the nature of relationships and the emotions felt on your wedding day. I mainly work with small cameras, such as the Leica rangefinder, to be as unobtrusive as possible.

For portrait sessions, I minimally direct couples, to capture a sense of spontaneity and show your connection to one another. While I am very fast and decisive when setting up large group portraits, I also keep it loose and fun for everyone. And, everyone who has come together to celebrate your day – that is, all of your guests – are equally important to me photographically.

Light, color and composition are an obsessions, which largely comes from working professionally in a color darkroom, where I learned to paint with light. This becomes especially fun to play with on the dance floor, where you will see me all over the place, until it’s time to go home.

I am based in Brooklyn and New Orleans and also available for destinations worldwide.

I look forward to hearing from you!

    So amazing!

    We loved working with April so much! From our first conversation with her we could tell that she is so passionate about what she does and she really helped us to capture our day in such a special way. She and her assistant Reuben, made the whole process so seamless and went above and beyond to make sure we got all the shots we wanted - formal photos, action photos, candids, you name it. Our photographs are truly beautiful and we had such an amazing time going through them and reliving such fun memories. April is amazing and we couldn't recommend her more highly!

    Tree of Life Wedding Ceremony and Reception (NOLA)

    April is the sweetest photographer I’ve ever worked with ! During our wedding week, I came down with a bad cold and she offered to help me with anything I needed (unrelated to photography needs). She constantly checked on me to make sure I was okay leading up to our wedding day. On the day of, April was very optimistic and upbeat at all times; ready to assist in every way possible. She really put me at ease leading up to the moments before the ceremony (I had major nerves). April is not only charismatic, but she follows directions and finds the absolute best shots/angles she possibly can to showcase everyone’s best qualities. She is talented, charming, and a pleasure to be around.
    After receiving our photos (in our own online library), my husband and I were stunned. The pictures look like they’re from a magazine spread. I truly can’t believe this was our wedding. I will cherish April’s photos for a lifetime. Signed, a very happy bride (Di’ana)
