Faith Roper Photography

Louisiana Photographer

Hi, I’m Faith, a Louisiana-based wedding photographer, a world traveler, foodie, a romantic at heart, dog lover, and your calm, patient friend who works with you to create romantic, timeless, artful photos. I started out with photography in college, shooting film and working in the darkroom. I shoot both film and digital now, with the classic look of film always influencing my style. I am passionate about perfecting my craft and always striving to create something meaningful and unique.

Behind the camera, I approach your wedding day with thoughtfulness, intention, and care. I always strive to be a calm presence on your day. Of course, I want you to love your wedding photos, but also to have a great experience with me. Looking around at all the friends and family celebrating, I always feel so honoured to be there documenting your wedding. I am inspired by luminous skin tones, painterly backgrounds, and emotive storytelling. I want to create photos that make you feel beautiful and that help you remember how you felt on your wedding day. Whether you’re planning a wedding in New Orleans, Texas, Hawaii, a European destination, or anywhere else in the world, I’d love to hear from you!

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… hanging out at home with my husband and dogs, watching movies, cooking a meal together, and baking something yummy.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… I have two that stand out… traveling around Provence with my sister and Mom, tasting wine, eating lots of bread, cheese, and pastries, checking out castles and vineyards, visiting little shops and markets, and going to Cassis on the coast.

Visiting Kauai with my husband… a helicopter ride around the island and landing at a waterfall, a hike through the canyon, a boat ride along the coast and through the sea caves, checking out different secluded beaches, and lots of fish tacos, shave ice, and ice cream.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… I’m really eager to go back to Italy soon, particularly Tuscany, but as for somewhere new, Greece and Iceland are on my list!

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… being with people on one of the happiest days of their lives and creating personal artwork for them to cherish.

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE…have the wedding that you want and focus on what’s important to you! Also, when it comes to photography, consider the time of day for the best lighting for your ceremony and portraits.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… probably Hawaii. We went on our honeymoon and have been going almost every year for the past few years. I love the relaxed vibe, the breeze, the food, and of course the ocean and beautiful scenery.

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… being from Louisiana, I have eaten some amazing meals in New Orleans. But my most memorable meal was on a trip to Hawaii with my husband eating fresh seafood on a cliffside with a beautiful sunset and the ocean breeze.

THE PETS I OWN ARE… we currently have three rescue dogs: Luna, a blue heeler mix, Stevie, a lab / shepherd mix, and Apollo, a chihuahua mix. We also love fostering dogs with our local rescue.
