My name is Joy McClanahan. My husband and I recently were eating at Hai Nam's in Lafayette. We were walking out the door and I noticed the 2016 Lafayette Directory. I had been looking for a portrait studio to have portraits made of our 3 month old great grandson. I was browsing through the directory and came upon the #1 Portrait studio in Lafayette. I called Nouveau Photeau studio and talked with Danny and later with Mona and Nikki. I was very impressed with our phone conversations. I made an appointment for Ryder, our great grandson and his mother for Ryder first sitting. We are very satisfied with the professional way that Nouveau Photeau portrait studio photographed Ryder. I have several more appointments already booked at 6 months, 9 months, and 1 year. Danny, Mona, Nikki are professional people to have done business with. They were so patient with the settings of Ryder and so caring about their customers. I can see why they are the #1 Portrait Studio in Lafayette.

"I was never one to take pictures as often as this; this is the most pictures I've taken in the past two hours. So the fact that I got to experience different settings to take pictures in was pretty cool."

I really considered no one else. We planned a fall shoot of Kristen and her horses. Mr Danny showed up like a movie set crew, equipment, personnel, lighting, the works. Very impressive and professional. These pictures came out better than we could imagine. When Kristen showed up to pick up her pictures of the horses, she called me so excited to tell me there was a huge picture of her and "snoopy" in the front window! Danny had sure surprised her! It meant so much to us, that is the kind of caring people at Nouveau Photeau. Danny and Mona are so easy to speak to and plan pictures. They will stay late, show up early, work with you schedule, fix your hair, all for you. Mr. Danny is so funny and a pleasure to be around. He can grasp the most gorgeous picture. He always seems to get the "Best Shot"! The best studio in Lafayette is the difference between a good picture and the best picture! That's NOUVEAU PHOTEAU! Sincerely, Cindy Domingue

Johnny and Diana- 35th Anniversary 2016
After searching for months to find a photographer to do our family portrait. I almost gave up when our 35th Anniversary come close. Many photographers I was able to contact only do it outside. Luckily, one of these photographer gave me info about Nouveau Photeau in Lafayette. I went to meet them to discuss about what we want, the fee and the appointment. We were treated warmly with courtesy and very professional. We were very happy with the portraits, they are beautiful. It is very hard to find one like Nouveau Photeau. I would recommend to anyone who wants beautiful pictures, great outcome should go to Nouveau for their important events such as Anniversary or Graduation. Thank you Mr. Danny for the beautiful pictures.

I hate pictures. I've been to other professionals. They haven't came close to what nouveau photeau achieved. The Best picture I've taken in my life. I know it's not me, it's the photographer. The photographer revealed the best me possible.

"I just finished a photo shoot with Mr. Danny Izzo with Nouveau Photeau, and we had a great time. We got to go to UL, take some pictures over there. Got to take a picture in a tree holding a trombone: you don't get to do that every day...Took a picture at the football field. It was a great time! Had fun!"

My experience at Nouveauphoteau was nothing short of excellent and rewarding. Mr. Danny took my visions and ideas to help create the perfect senior pictures. He also worked with my schedule, and a venue I chose to fit my liking. Shooting formal photos at the studio was very fast and simple as well, the staff at Nouveau made any changes I thought were necessary. As a graduate now from high school, my family and I wanted senior pictures to be perfect and truly reflect my time in high school. Nouveauphoteau exceeded all of my expectations and I couldn't be happier with the results!

"I had an awesome time with Nouveau Photeau today and their amazing staff. We went to Avery Island: took a bunch of pictures over there. We saw a snake and a big ol' black bear. Then we came to downtown Lafayette, took some pics, and then I went into a fountain and got soaking wet...and I met a hobo *over there*"
