After a year of closings and shutdowns, I was inspired to transform the idea of a classic bridal session into a celebration of truly honoring your most authentic joy. To do this, we took inspiration from the city around us and our own love for Paris to create a full-day shoot that would encapsulate the perfect Parisian day but in the most fabulous way. Putting aside conventions of what a bridal session should look like, we instead designed a full day filled with beauty, delicious food, and beloved locations, all with an editorial edge and stunning fashion. Explore this truly perfect Parisian day as we take you on a whirlwind tour of the city of love.
Part of what makes Paris such an enchanting city is how every street is just brimming with awe-inspiring beauty while still bustling with daily life. Parisian streets are breathtakingly beautiful and normal, and we wanted to celebrate that dichotomy in this bridal session. We brought together luxuriously elegant styling and grand locations with cherished daily moments like that first bite of a perfectly flaky croissant or the calm of sitting at your favorite cafe table for a cappuccino. You can sit in your local corner terrace where your favorite server knows your daily order yet be just steps from artifacts dating back thousands of years, on roads remarkably rich with history, surrounded by the most elegant architectural design.
Imagine this: Your day starts with a warm, buttery croissant and a rich, decadent cup of Angelina’s iconic chocolate chaud as you make your way through the Jardin des Tuileries. You settle in a comfortable seat around the Grand Bassin Rond, savoring your breakfast while reading about famous Parisian Impressionist painters before heading steps away to roam the halls of The Louvre. Having had your fill of inspiration, you wander to a local cafe to journal and reflect on a perfect morning. A cappuccino later, you’re ready to continue exploring, stopping by the Palais Royal before stocking up on delightful Laduree macarons. Finally, you make your way to the Point Alexander to take in a classically breathtaking sunset over the Eiffel Tower before adjourning with your loved ones for a celebratory meal L’Arpege.
