So excited to share this blog post! The post is long, but bear with me. I had so many favorite images from this session that I just couldn’t narrow them down. Half of the photos are shot on medium format film and the other half on digital. Shooting on film in Paris has been my dream forever and these turned out to be some of my all-time favorite photos. These photographs narrate a story about a couple crazy in love, in the most romantic city in the world. Chloe and Jean are absolutely adorable and their love is seriously contagious. This is a story about real love; Passionate, giggly and tender.
The elopement story-
Before seeing Jean for the first time that morning, Chloe has a sweet letter delivered to him in which she expresses her love and the dreams she has for them in a lifetime of together. The couple arrange to meet at the Louvre Museum for their first look. The day starts off with tight and happy embraces followed by a couple portrait photos. The two then head to the promenade near the Eiffel tower where a quick ceremony takes place. The sweethearts read their heartfelt vows to each other and share a slow first dance. The elopement ceremony takes place early in the morning, letting the two of them share their special moments without tourist interference and distractions. It’s absolutely perfect. After the official part is over, the newlyweds roam the streets of Paris. The city is quiet and magical. Darling Chloe can’t stop giggling. They stop at a cafe for lunch. A vintage Vespa with a ‘Just Married’ banner is used to get around town. The two head on over to their beautiful honeymoon suite which has the loveliest terrance and charming views. What a great way to end the most wonderful day! This is what Parisian dreams are made of! A beautiful, invitation suit with hand torn edges and wax seals, created and designed by Rachel Jacobson is sent out to close friends and family for a small reception to follow at home once they get back from their honeymoon.
