Elopement Photographers

New Orleans Elopement Photographers

You’re head over heels for your partner and ready to tie the knot, but the pressure of a traditional wedding in New Orleans is not feeling quite right. You crave the magic of the city, but not the price tag of most venues in the French Quarter. Especially the stress of planning a wedding from another state or country! Can’t imagine the added challenge if you’ve never been to N⚜️LA.

Why Elope? Traditional weddings can be expensive, time-consuming, and leave you feeling logistically challenged. There’s a more romantic (and wallet-friendly) way to say “I do” in the Big Easy!

Hey there! I’m Marcia, a lifelong New Orleanian and the founder of Ibay Photography –, your ticket to a romantic New Orleans experience..

Why me? With over 10 years in the New Orleans wedding industry, I’ve seen countless couples trade genuine connections for catering others. Ibay Photography was born out of this frustration – to offer couples a stress-free, unforgettable elopement adventure that celebrates your love story, not someone else’s expectations. All photographers associated with the ibay team are selected for their expertise and experience with elopements. Our photography style can be classified as timeless/classic along with playfulness in our approach.

This isn’t just stunning elopement photography (though that’s definitely included). We’re your one-stop shop for creating a special elopement in New Orleans, from venue recommendations to vetted makeup artists and even live musicians to add that special touch.

Ready to simplify your happily ever after and say “I do” (or “I still love you, forever!”) in the heart of New Orleans? Let Ibay Photography whisk you away for an epic elopement adventure! We service New Orleans and the MS Gulf Coast!

Marcia is also a photography business coach 📸 to other aspiring photographers looking to grow a thriving photography company and concentrate full time on their creative skills.

Can’t wait to meet you both!
