Amelia and Patrick’s pre-elopement couple session or engagement session was an idea that came from talking about their plans for their elopement. As an English speaking Paris engagement photographer ,the idea of capturing some romantic film engagement photos in classic black and white really appealed to me.
With a little planning we took in the classic sights of Paris from the Eiffel Tower to the wonderful Champ de Mars as well as some truly wonderful moments travelling on the Paris Metro.
Photographed entirely on film, Amelia and Patrick approached me as their English speaking Paris engagement photographer because I knew the sights, and how to get about as well as being able to speak some French to make the whole morning run smoother.
Of course, I usually photograph in colour so you might be a bit confused realising all of these photos are black and white. For this Paris engagement session, it was entirely shot on black and white film. Amelia and Patrick made this request, it wasn’t something sprung on them as I usually shoot a mixture of colour and black and white and when they described taking photos on the Metro, and walking around the famous boulevards, the Pont de Bir Hakeim and in the Champs de Mars and the Eiffel Tower, it all seemed to fall into place beautifully.
If you are looking for a English speaking Paris engagement photographer, do get in touch, I’d love to hear all about your plans! x
