Best friends for seven years (and counting), Jessica and Kaitlin had shared almost everything together…except the excitement of travel! So, naturally, they set out to change that and planned an incredible trip together to discover a place neither of them had ever been — New Orleans! Read on for their take on their friendship and capturing their time together in the Big Easy.

“We met almost seven years ago and we have been totally inseparable since. We’ve rocked side ponies and neon clothes together, followed Santa pub crawls, drank tubs worth of tequila (with no training wheels), sang Meatloaf to all our friends, got matching tattoos, and yet the one thing we never did was travel together.

“So, we decided to book a trip and go somewhere we both had never been. We chose the magical city of New Orleans. Since I’m the one behind the lens all the time and all we are good at is taking tipsy selfies, we knew we needed a real photographer to capture our adventure in the historic French Quarter. Our Flytographer Randy nailed it. Our friendship is perfectly engraved in these stills forever, and they will always be our return tickets to the memories we created in NOLA.” — Jessica
