Many tourists turn to me, as to the photographer in France, for organizing a love-story photo shoot in Nice. This time, my "Mediterranean" customers were Makar and Natalia, a young and very stylish couple.
We met on the morning of February on the Promenade des Anglais, one of the largest embankments in Nice, which originates from Le Pont Napoléon- III and ends at the entrance to Le Quai des États-Unis. During this cool time, the beach was quite devastated and breathtaking, that allowed us to take wonderful shots on the Mediterranean coast and near the famous Hotel Negresco.
Makar and Natalia are really very stylish guys, and their image fully demonstrated this statement. They chose a street style, wearing black leather jackets and classic jeans. The fire curls of Natalia looked extremely bright against the blue sea and clear air. Romance, beauty, and love are a triad which perfectly describes the atmosphere of this photo session on the Côte d'Azur.
Then I suggested Makar and Natalia going to the Èze Village, a place with one of the most fantastic views of the coast from a height of over 400 meters. The rock on which this medieval village is built is located not far from the seashore, and this causes a feeling that you literally "float" over it and surroundings. It turned out that Natalia is a passionate connoisseur of Nietzsche's art, and what a coincidence is, that exactly here, her favorite philosopher and writer Friedrich Nietzsche has been living for a long time. The Èze Village has inspired Nietzsche to write many books, for example, the famous novel "Thus Spoke Zarathustra". Natalia and Makar incredibly combined modern style and the beauty of the old village in photographs, especially in shots taken on narrow cobbled streets.
I promised the guys to show a wonderful place, which seemed to be a location from a magical saga. Here, at the Jardin Exotique d'Eze, we managed to plunge into warm Mediterranean colors even on a February day. The peculiar microclimate of the garden allowed Makar and Natalia to feel freedom, open their feelings and tenderness, and create beautiful romantic photoshoots.
My clients experienced that the photo shoot in Nice is not only a way to fill the family album with delightful photos, but also a chance to see the ineffable beauty of the Côte d'Azur. I'm happy that I helped Natalia and Makar spend such an unforgettable weekend in France!
