Adam & Tanya
Adam and Tanya are a cheerful couple of newlyweds, who decided to spend their honeymoon in France with organization of an unforgettable love story photo shoot in Paris.
We met early in July and chose Montmartre as the main location of our photo session. Montmartre is one of the few places in the city that preserves the charm of antiquity. Here you can find a small amount of glass and concrete, and uneven narrow streets running uphill remind us of the times when Renoir, Van Gogh and Modigliani were wandering around them. The Montmartre hill has been known since the Ancient Rome times: the discovery of gypsum in its depths was the beginning of prosperity of this region. Once the landscape was revitalized by gypsum windmills, and at the end of the 19th century, inhabitants built the majestic Basilique du Sacré-Cœurwas on the highest point of Paris. On the background of this incredible church, we took a series of amazing shots. The unique white stone of Sacré-Cœurwas does not absorb dirt and shines when raining, that can be clearly observed on our pictures.
To convey the spirit of antiquity in this area, we made an impressive photo with a black-white filter. Dressed in a snow-white sarafan made of flax with dissolved long blond hair, Tanya perfectly complemented Montmartre's style and looked as an integral part of this place. Adam emphasized the image of his wife, by wearing on a pale pink shirt and dark blue shorts. Both newlyweds put on shoes made of genuine leather in a coarse-peasant style, which harmonized with cobblestone roads.
We walked along Montmartre, the cozy streets of which were witnesses of the bohemian past, and made a lot of awesome photo stuff there.
Almost at every corner in Paris, you can face a cozy cafe, where the spirit of romanticism lives. Tatiana and Adam experienced this street romance magic.
Finally, we went to the love wall, located in the Square Jehan Rictus, which is 40 square meters in size and consists of 612 enamel lava tiles. The Wall presents the phrase "I love you" in 311 languages and has cute pieces of scarlet heart symbolizing reconciliation, which must come together in order to reunite the beloved. On the background of this lovely masterpiece, we took the most gentle and romantic shots.
I am happy that Tanya and Adam were pleased with this photo session in Montmartre and expressed their sincere gratitude, and I, in my turn, was very pleased with the work and meeting with this cute couple.
