With Mardi Gras having just passed, I thought I’d revisit some images from my recent trip to NOLA on assignment for Jetsetter, the online travel flashsale site. It’s not a bad life when I get to search out and photograph (and enjoy) the best po’ boys, cocktail bars and music venues in The Big Easy. Check out some of my favorite images form that wonderful weekend. Click for full size and all images © Heather Gallagher Photography.

What visit to New Orleans is complete without a big ol' Po Boy served up with a smile? Domilises is my recommendation.

I love these guys. Okay, I’m biased… they are good friends of mine and their dog and my dog are bestie’s (it’s adorable), but still, I love these guys. Ashley is the most wonderfully goofy person I know and Tyler is a thoughtful man of few words, and together they make a perfectly balanced couple who love the simple things- good food, good friends and good times. I am sooo looking forward to their upcoming wedding, that I also have the honor of photographing, this Thanksgiving in Austin. Here are my favorites from our recent engagement shoot.

I had the pleasure of photographing the gentlemen of Austin Beerworks yesterday, the Austin, TX based craft brewery in its second year of kicking ass and taking names. In their short year and a half of operation, these guys have blown up in the dense and discerning craft beer market that is Austin and really made a name for themselves as “Local Brewers Hell Bent on Excellence”, exceeding their first years impressive sales by 400%, being ranked as one of America’s top 10 craft breweries by Men’s Fitness and above all, being stand up guys. Here are some of my favorites from yesterday’s Super Awesome shoot.
