The world is far from lying when they say that Paris is one of the most romantic places in the world. Even with the gritty street art, gloomy weather, and cigarette smoke every where you turn- the cobble stone streets, petite cafe store fronts, and never ending jaw dropping architecture- Paris will sweep you off your feet.

Our clients Jessie & Shuning- who are getting married at Auberge du Soleil next April- decided to have a destination engagement session in Paris, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it!

We split their session into two days to get the most out of France that we possibly could. On day 1, we wandered through Paris starting at the world famous Eiffel Tower. We began just before sunrise to beat the crowds and to capture the beautiful soft pink light and man, was it worth it! We carried on and went to the Pont Alexandre III, which is a stunning bridge crossing over the Seine river that is elegantly decorated with gold statues and old black street lamps. Continuing on our stroll through Paris, we stopped by the Louvre Museum, the Les Deux Plateaux with its fun black and white pillars, passing by Notre Dame finding our selves wandering through tiny side streets loaded with shops, cafes and gift stores.

Just in the nick of time before the rain over took Paris- we ended our session at one of our favorite locations- on the side of the Seine River. People were scattered along the river that runs through Paris like the vain of romance every day, just enjoying each others company maybe with a bottle of wine, a baguette and a bit of cheese. It was amazing to see how such a simple place, surrounded by such beauty, could be the source of encouragement for so much love, chivalry and romance.

Paris- you stole our hearts.

Stay tuned for part two of our European adventure where we headed just south of Paris and spent the day at the Chateau du Vaux le Vicomte!
