Getting beautiful photos of yourself in the city of love is much easier than you’d think. Claire and Matt had arranged their Paris photo shoot with us after a few short emails. The only difficult part for Claire was deciding between two different dresses and hairdos. She liked my simple solution. A hair and wardrobe change in the middle of your Paris engagement shoot just adds to the fun.

It was nice seeing our photos of the Gorse-Cousteau wedding published in the print version of Brides Magazine this spring and posted to Brides.com yesterday. We knew of Ashlan Gorse and Philippe Cousteau before they contacted us to shoot their chateau wedding near Paris. We had seen Ashlan often or E! News. We remembered Philippe from CNN International and Animal Planet. Like his famous grandfather, Jacques Cousteau, Philippe is an oceanographer. On the show Oceans Blue, I remembered Philippe fearlessly swimming with sharks. After the wedding, he was part of a fun coincidence. I was telling a friend about photographing Philippe’s wedding. During our conversation, we walked up on a larger than life poster of Philippe modeling for the Gap store. Surprised, I pointed at the poster and said, “that guy.”

Rachael and Tyson are our latest couple to have a shoot in tux and gown during their honeymoon in Paris. It’s the same concept as getting a photographer for a pre-wedding photo shoot in Paris. Being a different day from their wedding, we could spend a lot more time making Rachael beautiful in her dress. Plus, there’s the luxury of having complete freedom in choosing when and where to capture photos. One look at the pics above shows why we chose sunset in Paris.

The photos above explain why brides are willing to cross an ocean for a destination wedding in France. Alison and Philip chose the Chateau d’Artigny for their wedding in the dreamy French countryside. They hired us as their photographers, and the Paris based American event planners of Fete in France to plan their dream wedding.

The bride’s Swarovski crystal Louboutin Stilettos drew oohs and aahs from every girl who cast eyes on them. Those sounds were bested by the reaction the veiled bride received when she entered the ceremony. What pairs better than a veil lit by enormous chateau windows? How about the trio of veil, grand windows, and the majestic marble staircase of this gorgeous French chateau? Now that’s an entrance. The virtual fireworks that scene caused were followed by real fireworks on the chateau grounds later that evening. The beautiful photo opportunities the day provided illuminates why photographers in France dream of destination weddings at charming countryside chateaus just as much as brides do.

These cold winter days have me longing for Paris in the springtime. It’s a great time of year to be a Paris photographer. True romantics are already planning their spring getaway to the city of love, so I’m throwing out a little advice. The best Paris photos start with a great dress (or three). Voila! There’s your excuse to add shopping to the planning list. Above are a few photos from James and Kea’s Paris engagement shoot to inspire you.

We’re the only Paris Photographers in Elle Magazine Taiwan’s “Stylish Weddings” feature.

WeddingPhotosInElle

We just had a full spread in Elle Magazine Taiwan. The magazine scoured the blogs looking for photos of some of the year’s best weddings from around the world for one of their features.  They found Melissa and Austin’s Louisiana wedding on Style Me Pretty and knew it fit the bill.  When they were surprised that Paris photographers shot the wedding, I explained that we had done a shoot during her visit to the city of love, and she had to have us when she decided to import a little of Paris to her Rayville wedding.
