This is an amazing example of what you can do in 3 hours when the weather is lovely and you don't mind starting your shoot super early in Paris. This elopement wedding Paris photographer portrait session was done in the end of July and the chestnut trees in Tuileries garden were already turning the beautiful shades of golden. Tatiana Zinchuk took care of preparing the bride with hair and make up early in the morning, so we could start our shoot at Trocadero at sunrise to get those stunning middle of the plaza views of the Eiffel Tower done without anyone in the background.
We then took a taxi to Alexandre III bridge to get photos with another view of the tower and we also had balloons for the photos - don't they look amazing! Because it was very early, the golden doors of Petite Palais museum were still closed and we could do some photos on the steps of the museum. From there getting to the Tuileries garden is just a short walk away, so we walked all the way to the Louvre and met another photoshoot there who were taking photos for a classical violin player. We had the balloons and she had a violin, so we traded the balloons for some photos with the violin - that's a super special moment for Rana, because her brother is a violin player.
Finally we arrived to the Louvre museum courtyard and it was still early enough for us to be able to do photos in a relatively empty space. We even got a few shots with the street musician who was performing with his chello in the arched walkway of the Louvre. Truly, this was one of the most magical mornings for me. The energy these two have together, I think it's contagious and everything just fell into place for a perfect experience that they dreamed of.
