From Paris With Love: Our Elopement At Paris Through The Lens

Notre Dame Paris

This is where we commenced our photo session with our local photographer Pierre.

We got off the taxi out the front of Notre Dame. I was wearing my pair of purple UGG boot and a navy colour duck down coat over the top of my my vintage lace wedding dress – not the most stylish combo but anything decent that keeps me warm could do in those chilly winter days in Paris! I reckon I totally looked like a runaway bride.

It was two days before Christmas so it came with no surprise that troops of sightseers were gathering out the front of this famous grand lady of the city.

How I wish I’ve polished my posing/ modeling skills before the session! Posing ‘naturally’ is sometimes not an easy task when you’ve got large audience around!

Well, my best tip? Dance like nobody’s watching.

And keep looking into each other’s eyes as if the world is just the two of you


The Seine, the cobblestone streets, Le Louvre, La Tour Eiffel and Alexander III Bridge all made the perfect fairytale-like backdrop to our Parisian photo shoot. Capturing l’heure bleue (the blue hours) in the evening when the city just lights up for sure added some stunning and dreamy effects!

Last stop, we made it right underneath La Tour Eiffel, just the perfect timing when the light show was on and the Eiffel Tower was dazzling in spectacular gold and silver glitter. C’est maginique!

It was a little bit more than three hours of penguin-like cuddling trying to look cool while staying warm – and it all ended on an amazing note.

P.S. Best tips: Pierre is extremely friendly and helpful local photographer based in Pairs, if you’re like me who is the first-timer to Paris and are looking for suggested itineraries for your photo sessions, get in touch with Pierre and he can start bouncing off some suggestions for you!
