HONEY MOON IN PARIS - A TWO-HOUR MORNING PHOTO SHOOT WITH MERVE & KEMAL

If you were living in Europe and had to choose a city for your honeymoon reachable in only a couple of hours, where would you go and what would you do in 48 hours? Audrey Hepburn does not need to convince us anymore, her “Paris is always a good idea” famous quote has travelled all around the world before inspiring thousands of people.

Merve and Kemal just got married in Belgium in September and wanted to travel to Paris to celebrate their union in a very romantic and unique place in the world. They wanted to capture their memories at Eiffel Tower but also add the Louvre Pyramid as a backdrop of their fairy tale couple photo session experience in Paris.

In mid-November at 8AM in the morning, it’s rather cold with 3 degrees outside and the sky is kind of greyish. Autumn is almost over and winter is approaching step by step. At this time of the year, it’s difficult to find motivation to work outdoors even though you live in Paris and you love your job very much. This is the one and only thought that goes through my mind while waiting for my guests by the beautiful Louvre courtyard.

Finally, when I see the Bride with her elegant white dress walking towards me followed by her husband a few minutes later, it feels warmer and at that exact moment my creativity’s going all over the place. My only motivation from now on is to capture the most beautiful memories for this newlywed couple in the next two-hours.

“We had a very nice experience with Paulette in Paris. We came for Paris for an after-shoot. And luckily we did this! The photos were beautiful and professional! Definitely recommended!” Merve & Kemal




WHY NOT BOOKING A PHOTO SESSION IN PARIS WHEN TRAVELING TO THE CITY OF LIGHT? VICTORIA & DANY AT ROYAL PALACE

They are young, elegant, gorgeous, and vibrant. And above all they're not worried about looking ridiculous jumping around the park and making silly poses under the rain with their damaged umbrellas. Her name is Victoria and she comes from Russia, her husband is Dany and he's French Parisian. They met at University in Scotland and are both as crazy as each other. Despite challenging weather, they've decided to book a couples’ photo shoot at Palais Royal to immortalize their memories in the City of Lights.

They've been married for almost 4 years and each moment, each pose, each touch and kiss feels like the first one. Whether it’s raining or shining, their vibrant smiles brighten the sky and it looks like time has stood still in this idyllic Parisian background. It's amazing how comfortable they feel in front of the camera and it looks like they are professional models and have been doing this their entire life. I'm really impressed with their energetic mood despite this dreary weather, and I can't understand why some people are so relaxed posing in front of a camera while others feel anxious.

I'm not used to shooting in this wet weather much, and don't feel very comfortable in the cold. The raindrops are a little annoying and the icing on the cake is that the light isn’t very pretty for getting the results I’d hoped for. Despite the bad conditions, I am surprisingly enjoying the experience and having a blast: It feels like everything is set up for a black and white movie from the 20's: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...  ACTION!

There’s one thing I remembered in that very special moment that felt so powerful: "Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass... It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

I'm now waiting impatiently for the next photo shoot in the rain...
