8 Must Get Photos in New Orleans


There are plenty of spectacular places to photograph in New Orleans, so we took the liberty of narrowing down your list of must-get photos on your next trip to the Big Easy. Here are our favorite shots from our Instagram followers you won't want to miss.


Jackson Square  


The square is located in the heart of the city and the surrounding streets are filled with some of the South's most talented artists. As one of the most popular places to visit, shop and eat in the city, it has also become one of the most photographed. Whether it's a bridal portrait or a snapshot of a family vacation and the backdrop of the St. Louis Cathedral resonate the soul of New Orleans. Photo by @thesimplesol

Paddlewheelers on the Mississippi River  


After grabbing some beautiful shots of the cathedral and the surrounding street artists, walk across Decatur Street to get a view of the mighty Mississippi. Take it up a notch by getting out on the water with a riverboat tour on the Creole Queen or the Steamboat Natchez. Each boat offers a variety of tours including dinner and jazz nights on the river.

French Market  


Head to the historic French Market on Decatur to get a beautiful shot of the iconic entryway gate and the outdoor stalls. The market has been in existence on the same site since 1791. Shop for anything from fresh produce at the farmers market to unique handmade crafts. Photo by @juliephvn

St. Charles Streetcar  


The historic buildings and homes of St. Charles Avenue are best admired while riding on the longest operating streetcar in the world. Riding a streetcar is a must for first-time visitors and the best way to view some of the most beautiful locations in the city. The streetcars are not only a piece of history, but an art form. Built with mahogany and brass, the streetcars add to the unique charm of the city and serve as an iconic image of New Orleans. Photo by @nichka555

Frenchmen Street Musicians 


Venture to Frenchmen Street to experience the music-filled soul of the city. Music is everywhere from the musicians playing on street corners to the amazing venues like The Spotted Cat Music ClubSnug Harbor and The Maison. You'll capture the tune with a perfect photo. Photo by @n0emz

New Orleans City Park 


As one of the largest urban parks in the country, New Orleans City Park not only provides recreational activities and attractions for visitors and locals, but a picturesque setting that is true to New Orleans landscape. The park is dedicated to preserving old New Orleans while encouraging modern additions. It is home to 600 year-old oak trees as well as a modern sculpture garden and many other unique areas and pieces. Photo by @kristalshannon

Garden District & Lafayette Cemetery No.1  


Live oaks, wrought iron, pillars, and porticos are some of the aristocratic details of the Garden District, a neighborhood of spectacular19th-century mansions built in styles ranging from Greek Revival to Gothic. Accessible from downtown via the St. Charles line streetcar, the Garden District is made for exploring. Feel free to explore Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 on your own or be a part of a guided tour. Find a guided tour here to explore Cemetery No. 1. Photo by @downers48

Carriage Rides

The horse-drawn carriages are an iconic sight around the Big Easy. Not only take a few pictures with the beautiful horses but also catch a ride to tour the city. We are positive you will find many more gorgeous photo ops as you ride around the French Quarter and into the Garden District. Photo by
