By tradition, the newlyweds strive to spend their honeymoon outside the homeland and organize a wedding trip. They are inspired by the opportunity to stay alone, without other people, relaxing and not taking care of anything after long months of preparation for the wedding. Many corners on our planet ideally suit this purpose. Paris, perhaps, is a must-visit city, because it’s considered to be the central symbol of love, romance, and tenderness as if specially created for lovers. Even some of the sidewalks are so narrow that two people can walk along them only by hugging each other. Here you will find many beautiful places, impressive landscapes, will be able to feel the magical atmosphere and get an unforgettable experience for the whole life. What’s more, in local hotels, the rooms are arranged in such a fantastic way that if you close the curtains in the evening, the whole world disappears and you are left alone in your heart-to-heart universe.
A vivid example of having such an incredible pastime is my old clients, Cyril and Ksenia, who got married in April 2018. The newlyweds decided to spend their honeymoon in Paris, combining the trip with a stunning wedding photo session at the Eiffel Tower. We met early in the morning at sunrise. It’s the best time to go to the most popular attractions because an hour later, the crowds of tourists will not give you peace of mind. Moreover, from 6 am to 9 am, you can catch the softest light, which will undoubtedly improve the quality of your photos.
In April, Paris begins to play with various colors, and thanks to the flowering of trees and flowers, everything looks very picturesque and bright. Ksenia seemed to have chosen an attire to match the colors of nature: her pale pink dress was perfectly highlighted with golden morning light and the greenery of the blossoming leaves.
It’s already a good tradition to begin a love story photo shoot with lovers holding their hands on the background of the tower. This concept has become as symbolic as the wedding kiss, which Ksenia and Cyril could not refrain from in such a romantic ambiance. Then we went to the Trocadero Square, the most famous observation deck in the world, where I managed to take a series of amazing shots of a couple which seemed to drown in love for each other. For the final shots, we went down to the park located at the very foundation of the Eiffel Tower.
At parting, Cyril and Ksenia confessed to me that all this time Paris seemed to belong only to them, and they were happy that they chose me as the photographer for their wedding photo shoot in Paris. A lot of emotions and beautiful photos remained with them for many years, and the joy of meeting with such a cute couple became my best inspiration.
Your photographer in Paris, Dimitri Finko.
