About April Renae Photography

Hi there! 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 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!

    My new go-to photographer

    Saying that April is a joy to work with is an understatement. She is so genuine and fun to be around and it’s more like shooting with a friend than someone you’ve hired. My husband and I eloped, so I booked her fast and basically at the last second and it was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. April’s prices are fair and booking with her is so easy to do, she’ll help you figure out all of the details and make sure that it’s what is best for you. My husband is not someone who is comfortable in front of a camera, but he was acting like he grew up in front of one with April. She made us both feel SO incredibly comfortable and you can see that in the shots of us that we received. The quality of the photos is PHENOMENAL and she’s great at catching the little moments that you want to cherish forever. I will always consider booking April for pretty much everything from this point on and you should too! You won’t regret it.

    The best experience I’ve had with a photographer.

    April and I talked early on, months before my wedding to discuss what was most to me picture wise. I was very specific about what I wanted and was very non traditional when it came to the typical posed wedding pictures. She was so friendly, very polite, and fit right in with the wedding day commotion. After editing, my wedding pictures are EXACTLY what I wanted and I am still in awe over them. The coloring, the fun, and intimate pictures she captured from my wedding day take my husband and I back every time we look at them. April is my photographer for life simply because she exceeded all my expectations. Next shoot, maturity pictures!
