Amelia and Patrick’s pre-elopement couple session or engagement session was an idea that came from talking about their plans for their elopement. The idea of capturing some romantic film engagement photos in Paris took a little planning as it was clear that whilst they wanted to take in the beautiful sights, it was genuinely about capturing their connection and capturing the romantic timelessness of Paris.
As you look through these film engagement photos in Paris you may start to think where’s the colour? Well, for this shoot we did something a bit different, 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.
