As an engagement photographer in Paris I try to find locations and objects that carry sentimental links to the mystique of Parisian culture. The Vespa undeniably brings out those sentiments. While shooting at one of my favorite locations, we stumbled upon the launch party of a company that rents restored vintage Vespas. For fun, I was about to ask if I could use their classic scooters as a prop for my couple’s photos. Before I got up the nerve, the owners of the company approached me to ask if they could use my couple as a prop for their Vespa. Ah, the things wearing a pretty dress will get you in Paris. If you’re a lover of all things euro retro, you can check out Ciao Paris to rent the old models that started the celebrity of Vespa.
