Why couples have been choosing Ibay Photography since 2014

elope to nola testimonial

"Marcia and Fonnie were so wonderful to work with on our wedding day. I’m not someone who is generally comfortable in front of the camera and was nervous about having my picture taken, especially at 6 months pregnant, and it was just as easy and fun as can be. And the photos came out so beautiful! I was just hoping for a couple where I didn’t look terribly awkward and now I cannot even choose a favorite to frame, there are so many stunning ones! I’m so thankful for such a lovely experience 💜"

“Marcia is fantastic! A joy to be around and such an artistic eye behind the camera! I am in love with the shots she took of our fun NOLA elopement, and absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for an awesome photographer!!”


First of all, if I could give 1 trillion stars I would!! She is absolutely the most amazing photographer I’ve ever worked with. And I promise you, I’m not just saying that!! Hands down, the best money I’ve ever spent! And soooo very reasonable. To anyone looking at reviews to see if you should use this company, just save yourself the time of searching and book!!!!! I’m so very serious. I have no complaints. My photos were beyond words, beautifully captured. She spent time to find out what I wanted and went above and beyond to bring those requests to life! And she WORKED her tail off!!!! And absolutely blew our minds! To the magic maker aka our beautiful photographer… I’ve been trying to find appropriate words to thank you for everything you did to capture our special day. And I can’t. Because there isn’t a proper word to show our gratitude. It would never meet what you produced. But thank you. With our whole hearts. ❤️❤️ you went far beyond our expectations!!! You definitely have a gift and I can’t thank you enough for all that you do!! 1 trillion stars. Book her! Elope to Nola. Love yourself and your best life! And LET HER CAPTURE IT!!!
