Kristina & Michael
A wonderful couple, Christina and Michael, has referred to me, as to the photographer in France, to organize a memorable wedding photo session in Paris.
We met early in the morning of September near the Eiffel Tower. The cold morning light and the complete absence of people at this early time created the illusion that my clients were alone in this place. Christina's air wedding dress, decorated with a delicate lace, composed an incredibly gentle silhouette of the girl, and her light curls perfectly complemented this romantic image.
To continue the photo shot, we went to the Louvre, which was a grand royal palace in the past. We took amazing photographs on the background of a glass pyramid that presented all its beauty, shining with the cold edges of the glass.
Then we visited Le pont des Arts, the bridge of loving hearts, where previously thousands of couples have hanged their unique locks and threw out the keys in the Seine river. This was considered as a symbol of fidelity. But later this tradition was suspended due to the bridge collapse threat since there were more than 45 tons of hardware, and this also could lead to an environmental disaster for the river because of the huge number of drowned keys.
Next, we took a series of brilliant shots near one of the first Gothic cathedrals in Paris, Notre-Dame de Paris. This world-famous Catholic church with magnificent interior decoration has served as a place for royal weddings for many centuries, and the sculptural design of its external portals is considered a true masterpiece of Gothic art.
I suggested finishing this photo session at a later time of the day because Paris is especially beautiful at night. We took the last photos on the famous carousel near the Eiffel Tower and the two-level bridge Pont de Bir-Hakeim. The carousel served as a stunning background, as it was shining with thousands of lights, and Pont de Bir-Hakeim, which has been used as a site for filming many popular movies, also became a great location for us.
Generally, I was very pleased with this photo session, started with the first rays of the sun in a deserted city and ended in the dazzling colorful lights at night. We visited the best places for a wedding photo shoot in Paris, which left bright and unforgettable memories in the hearts and photos of the newlyweds. Christina's innocence and sincerity, as well as Michael's fervor and benevolence were perfectly combined in their union, both in photos and in real life. I was very happy to work with such a harmonious married couple!
