Colorado Wedding Photographer Francis Sylvest

a love letter to my home state. my first inspiration & where it all started

Louisiana is so much more than a destination to me - it's home. It's where I spent the first 24 years of my life, photographed my first wedding, where I got married. From spending time with my grandparents to now coming home to visit my own parents, it's still home.

While Colorado has been my base for the past 5 years, Louisiana & New Orleans gave me my first opportunities, shaped me into who I am today, and are a resounding influence on everything I create.

For me, it's not about adventure, it's about the belief that love, stories, & legacies are worth telling. I greatly value the power & life changing effect stories and experiences can have on our lives.

I whole heartedly believe that the legacy we leave has the power to live & inspire for generations to come. This value was passed on to me via my grandparents, who told these very stories through their travels & photos of their lives, love, & adventure in their 50 years of marriage.

in this life, we have a choice. we can choose to compare & devalue our path with the ones we love & look up to, or we can forge an adventure of our own in their memory & honor. that's why I tell stories, and would be honored to tell yours.

The Experience

my promise to you

The goal isn’t to create a trendy narrative or portray you in a way that misrepresents you. Rather - take the time to understand what you’re looking for, what you want from your wedding day, understand your journey, and provide you with an experience unique to you.

just know this:

Rather, it's to preserve a unique viewpoint of your life that you might otherwise overlook and share this in a way that best captures and inspires you– for this life & generations to come.

I can assure you there won’t be any performance to your wedding photographs, just your day as it unfolds. Together, we'll capture and celebrate moments created from your own perspective–your unique life experience.

from your first contact, to the last roll of film

I'm here to help & support - You don’t need all the answers - just a dream of what you want - and I'll do my best to get you there. I'm always a phone call or text away for anything you might need.

new orleans elopement packages

All New Orleans Elopement packages are custom built for your exact needs. The last thing I want you to do is book an elopement package you aren't 100% stoked on.

The process


To start - fill out the form via the 'contact' page and I'll be in touch within 24-hours to introduce myself & set up a time for us to hop on a laid-back call where we can get to know one another.

Connect + Introductions


I want to understand what it is your looking for, what you want your wedding day to be like, hear & understand your journey. After, I'll create a customized package for you that reflects just that.

Personalized Proposal


Once you feel confident that I'm your person, to lock in your date, I ask for a signed contract agreement in addition to a 30% retainer to lock in your date. After that, it's all official!

Your Date & Retainer


After securing your date, we can dive deeper into planning every aspect of your day. This is super easy & laid back, starting with a questionnaire to find what your non-negotiables & must haves are.

Planning Your Experience


On your wedding day, you'll be able to fully live in the moment and I'll be there to capture it all. After, I'll take the time to edit your film & photos into a piece of art that's all about you.
