Is there a more symbolic place for celebrating a wedding than France? Honeymoon in Paris, in the city of love and romance, - exactly this kind of wedding trip was chosen by my amazing clients William and Sandra from Indonesia.
A young couple has visited France in order to capture the most important event of their life, by organizing an unforgettable wedding photo session in Paris. We met at Trocadero square in the early morning when the sunlight just began to make its way through the autumn cloudy sky. Such a great unison of gentle blue clouds, specular gray tiles, and golden morning sun created an incredibly rich color gamut for the background that organically emphasized the natural Asian beauty of William and Sandra. We also took a series of brilliant photos near the main sight of Paris, the Eiffel Tower, which added a note of grandeur and sophistication to the glossy image of lovers, and the noble green of the blossoming park brought the final chord to complete harmony of a picture.
As a wedding photographer in Paris who knows the best locations of the city for creating impressive photo shots in the love-story format, I suggested my clients going to the world-famous Catholic church Notre-Dame de Paris which enchants tourists with its refinement and a certain gothic mystique. William and Sandra changed into more rigorous and elegant clothes, perfectly matching the overall concept of this scene. This image of the couple seemed to demonstrate that love is woven not only from threads of tenderness and affection, but it also represents a strong union of two full-fledged individuals who have taken an important responsibility for family wellbeing.
Then we went to the Pont Saint Michel Bridge that returned us to a romantic mood. Being surrounded by the quiet river Seine, we managed to create the atmosphere of coziness, warmth, unity and boundless love in our photos.
And, of course, what is a wedding photo session in Paris without magnificent shots taken at the Palais Royal palace, located directly in front of the Louvre? Right here we were able to convey the royal spirit that reigned in these walls in the 17th century. The guys represented themselves as real secular people thanks to Sandra’s elegant red dress of airy fabric and William’s fashionable suit. This image released the passion and flame of their feelings, and as a result, we pictured a fascinating story of our time about how the Palais Royal charges people’s hearts with a powerful energy through its historic colonnades and other Rococo architectural elements.
At the end of such a dynamic and full of beauty day, we arrived at the final point of our Franco-Indonesian photo session in Paris. The first and last emotions from any event should be the most vivid and memorable, so I brought the newlyweds to the legendary Louvre, famous for its unique architectural idea and a rich history of collecting artistic and historical relics of France. It's like a symbolic message to Sandra and William - collect and store as many joint сheery moments, impressions and memories, including these wonderful photos on the background of the world's greatest temple of art and a glass pyramid in the courtyard of Napoleon which always tends upwards, as possible.
Sandra and William are extremely charismatic and attractive marrieds who have filled Paris with their pure and strong love for many years. Perhaps exactly weddings in Paris are the secret of the romantic spirit that has been reigning throughout France since the beginning of time!
