Paris is “the city of love,” so it’s no surprise that this shoot is over-the-top oozing with pure romance, elegance and beauty. You could wear a potato sack in this city and the photos would be gorgeous, but luckily – this couple treated us to some serious style. The bride and groom looked stunning in their classic but vintage looks – complimenting the romantic, old-world vibe of the entire shoot. The bride is absolutely stunning in her Honey Bridal gown; she looks like a Greek goddess. The groom’s tux by Black Tie Formalwear is classic and timeless, like Paris itself. What really brought their look together for me though, was the flowers by local Parisian florist: Girls and Roses. The deep jewel tones and soft ivory lent themselves perfectly to the venue, giving a sensual,vampy vibe to the otherwise elegant and classy setting.
By choosing a variety of settings for this shoot, it helped to encompass the whole vibe of Paris; because essentially, it’s the city all lovers want to run away to together. This lovely couple looks cozy at Le Pharamond, a historic restaurant in the center of Paris. With its gold and velvet details, dark wood, wall-to-wall mirrors, crystal chandeliers and unique architecture, Le Pharamond is supremely swanky and romantic. This little place screams opulence and old-world Parisian charm – a perfectly intimate spot to elope to.
My favorite photos are of the couple on the twisted staircase inside Le Pharamond – they look glamorous but relaxed. Also, I love how natural this couple appears in front of the camera – the folks at Ferri Photography captured some of the most beautiful candid photos of the couple on the streets of Paris, with views of the Eiffel Tower.
