Boys in the Urban Bayou: A New Orleans-Themed Gay Wedding

This styled shoot features a real-life couple, Rob and Jay, and a group of their fun-loving friends. The idea came from Justin Boehme, owner of Da Levee, a cajun joint in Columbus, Ohio, and the concept was fully developed by Amelia Street Studio. Quickly the themed photo shoot was born: Boys in the Urban Bayou, a gay, New Orleans-themed wedding in the heart of Chicago.
