Magic hour at the Eiffel tower! A few photographs of my couple who flew from Hong Kong for their engagement photo shoot in Paris with WeddingLight. Sharon had requested the Eiffel towerin the background with the lights on so we headed to the Trocadero square late afternoon to get the beautiful light for our portrait session. The Eiffel tower is probably the N01 destination spot in Paris, therefore always quite crowded i have to say. It is always a challenge to get gorgeous pictures there, but what our client wants, our client gets!

We had one hour for our photo shoot so we decided to stay around the trocadero. Still, you quickly get into a mode where you lose track of  time. We could actually have spent the whole afternoon walking around the trocadero and get beautiful shots all very different from one another. From the square itself, to the steps going down the fountain, the numerous beautiful statues that can be used as a romantic backdrop, a gorgeous Parisian garden on its side and the merry go round walking all the way down, it is a wonderland for a photo tour in Paris with your love one. One hour of photography is plenty to cover the beauty of the site indeed. Now if you want to stretch your photo session to bring back home a larger collection of photographs that shows your happiness as a couple in the city of love, there are indeed numerous beautiful backdrops. From the grand monuments, historical gardens to more typical neighborhood where you will find little cafes, cobbles tone streets, flower boutiques & bakeries that can also be used as a romantic backdrop, it is always a feast for the eyes and a lot of fun to do. I understand that you may be camera shy, specially the men actually but do not worry, as it only takes a couple of minutes for me to make sure that you are going to have a great time and relax with your photographer in Paris! This is partly what a professional photographer does … that is making sure that his clients are ready to party and have some fun!

So if you are planning a trip to Paris in the next few months, it is always the perfect time for an engagement photo tour. Spring, summer, fall & winter, lights and colors may change but the city is always simply breathtaking! and it is always the perfect time for some beautiful portraits with your love one in the city of romance.

The lovely wedding blog “Fly Away Bride” just published one of our Boudoir photo story which we photographed in Normandy this summer. Our models were wearing a wedding dress from Max Chaoul couture, Jewelry from Cecile Boccara and very sexy lingerie by Absolutely Pom. If you havent seen the photo shoot on our blog yet now is the time to revisit some of the photographs on Fly Away Bride.

Engagement portrait session in Paris yesterday with the most handsome young couple who flew from Bejin for a romantic tour of Europe. At this occasion, they decided on having their engagement photographs taken in Paris, where else really!

Sandy was wearing a Red Valentino dress purchased in Paris for the shoot. “Love is in the air”, I had this tune in my mind as we were travelling the streets of Paris from one location to the next.

If you happen to be considering having your engagement photo session in Paris, here is another of our classic, elegant yet quite natural photo session with a couple from Seoul. It is a lot of fun to do, I swear! SCOTT & INNIS in Paris.

From Sandy ” It was a very pleasant shooting journey to work with Olivier and his hair and make up team. He has lots of passion and is very professional and creative. We were a bit nervous at the beginning but he made us enjoy ourselves and enjoy Paris. And the other important thing is that we went to lots of beautiful places which are not so well-known in Paris, such as artists shop and a beautiful theater backyard, which was surprising to us.
Our photographs looks elegant and natural, I will definitely recommend to my friend!

AND Yes, We went to “l’escargot” last night, a local restaurant that Olivier recommended, its steak and Oysters are just delicious. It’s a very nice and popular French restaurant. It is joyful to have an authentic dinner after 3 and half hours shooting!

Edward and I met in Sydney Australia when we were doing our Master degree. Edward loves European History, he wanted to visit Paris for a long time. Also, we saw Olivier’s work online before we come to Paris and we really liked it! His photography is stylish and all natural, he has a real sense of making his clients relax and have a good time with him.
My outfit: Red Valentino. His outfit: Ermenegildo Zegna. Our model experience was very surprising and joyful, I believe it is the greatest day we spend in Paris. SO MUCH FUN!”

Anja in Paris – A few inspiration boudoir & bridal photography on a beautiful fall afternoon. I can only recommend “Daniela in Love” in Paris located at 15 rue Boissy d’Anglas 75008 Paris.  You will find the most beautiful collection of lingerie at the store.

Edith fleuriste from “une fleur en liberté” was kind enough to make a beautiful bouquet for our shoot as well. She is located at 26 rue Saint Sauveur 75002 Paris, in the heart of the fashionista Montorgueil neighbourhood of Paris. If you want to make a special someone happy this might be the perfect gift idea as well + rue montorgueil is filled with numerous places to hang out, have a drink or a diner like the locals do!
