That we fell in love with Paris would be an absolute understatement. Let us share why we believe this is such an ideal city to capture love.
Paris is known for its romantic atmosphere and beautiful landmarks, making it a perfect city for engagement photos. As photographers, Jessica and I recently had the opportunity to shoot a few couples' romantic pictures in Paris, which was an unforgettable experience.
We started our first afternoon at the Eiffel Tower, where a recently engaged couple posed for some stunning shots in front of this iconic landmark. The views from the river of the tower were breathtaking, and the couple looked absolutely in love. We were delighted when the sparkling lights came on during the evening lighting of the tower show.
The following day, we headed to the Louvre Museum, where we strolled through the galleries. Among them is the iconic portrait of the Mona Lisa, which was definitely on our bucket list to capture and see. We grabbed some beautiful photos of the couple against the museum's stunning architecture, like its iconic glass pyramid and open courtyards.
After the Louvre, we walked the Seine River, where we took a stroll by the river and snapped more photos of the city and the boats along the Seine. The river views were breathtaking, and the couple looked absolutely in love. We then stopped for a romantic dinner at Le Recrutement Café, where one of the couples enjoyed delicious French cuisine and drinks. The café had a cozy and intimate atmosphere, which was perfect for a photo shoot. Don't forget to try the escargots.
On our final day, we went to the Domaine National du Palais-Royal, where we took some more photos in the beautiful gardens and courtyard. The gardens provided the perfect setting for our final shots. The lovely couples we met left Paris in love without a doubt, enchanted by the atmosphere this charming city emits.
