Bonjour! It’s been a while since I wrote the blog myself. This time, I’m writing about my all-time favourite city, a city that has always stayed in my heart… the city of Paris.
I will never tire of taking pictures in Paris. People always come up to me and ask, “Aha, you’re never bored of Paris, meh?” My answer is always the same, “Paris is and will always be the city of love.”
Taking pictures and playing around in this city is always a fun experience, but it is even more exciting when you have very lively clients, like Kevin and Bella.
Let’s talk about Kevin first. A young gentleman, one that is very caring towards Bella. He’s also very fashionable, detailed, and eccentric. You can tell just by looking at his outfit! He definitely knows how to fashion himself according to his personality. On the other hand, Bella is a super petite girl with a very charming smile and big, welcoming eyes. She is very calm and talks very gracefully.
It was early in the morning. And, as usual, I picked Kevin & Bella up from their hotel. When we were all inside the car, I remember Kevin telling me that he trusted me, and that I was free to do anything I wanted to do for this photoshoot. So, immediately and without a doubt, I took this precious opportunity. I asked him if I could change the itinerary a little bit.
And so I did. Usually, we would shoot at the Louvre during night time — but not this time… We went there early in the morning. To our attention, the photos came out really nice!
Yet it wasn’t just the photos. Kevin and Bella also showed me the power of the lovebirds. Their chemistry was one of a kind. They were not posey, they were just being their real selves — which I absolutely loved. I always like it when couples are open. For me, photographs should be honest, so that people on the other side of those photographs could feel as if they know and understand the couple without having to know them in real life.
From the way Kevin fashions himself, and from the way Bella manages everything, I can tell that they belong together. They are very young, but they really are a living proof that age is just a number. Their chemistry, I would say, is very mature. Together, they are able to make decisions very well.
I was also very lucky, because Paris gave me lots of warm sunlight that day, making the city all the more romantic. Yet still, no matter the weather, even in the rainy seasons, in the summer, spring, winter, or fall… this city will never fail, and will always have a place in my heart.
I hope Paris will stay the same for Kevin and Bella, so that they could one day come back and have nostalgic strolls under the city lights, reliving all the memories they have taken in this beautiful city of love.
Thank you Kevin and Bella for having me. I wish you both an everlasting love.
