Honeymoon Photography Session at the Eiffel Tower, Palais Royal, and Louvre by Kayan at Yolanda Villagran Photography.
For many couples like Vinna and Kong’s coming to Paris is a long awaited experience. Capturing their memories in the city of love in wedding attire against a backdrop of absolutely breathtaking views is what motivated them travel to Paris and hire a professional photographer.
Vinna was looking for “locations that embrace the Paris feel, including a shot of the Eiffel Tower in the background.” She was also looking for a “ chic and smart casual feel”. When there are so many wonderful locations to choose from it can be overwhelming. The trick is getting to know couples and seeing their vision of how they would like their session to go.
Vinna and Kong began their session at Pont Birhakeim. The view of the Eiffel Tower is spectacular and there is more flexibility when shooting in this location rather than at Place Trocadero. It was a rainy day and the ground was wet adding a shadow against the ground that created a romantic charm. Paris is a place where rain adds a special essence to photo sessions. It’s the that quintessential Parisian affair that gives a photo session it’s unique feeling of intimacy and closeness perfect for couples looking to create memories of their special time in Paris. There are so many photo opportunities. A stroll along the paved streets with fall leaves is absolutely fantastic and so charming. Vinna and Kong made their way to Palais Royal. It’s one of the most beautiful parks in Paris with its large fountain situated in the middle of the park with manicured trees forming rows on either side. It all seems perfectly orchestrated for their session as all the crowds were keeping out of the rain. They seemed to have Paris all to themselves. They enjoyed the perfect environment for a photo session capturing their enduring love. The final location was the Louvre where the evening light reflects beautifully and the pyramid provides a gorgeous backdrop to any subject.
This photo session was made possible in collaboration with Kayan. Her amazing skill and talent shine through and make every moment absolutely stunning.
