We recommend making sure that there are no events going on in the location you want to photograph. We’ve shown up to locations in the past only to find that we were not allowed to photograph there. For example one couple wanted to photograph at Audubon Zoo and when we arrived there was a private function going on and the zoo was closed to the general public. Another time we went to Armstrong Park but a Farmers Market was taking place and we were not able to shoot around the crowds of people. French Quarter Fest, Jazz Fest and Mardi Gras bring many people into the city and make photographing in the French Quarter difficult.
