When Trisha contacted me in her search of a photographer in Paris, she was looking for some pictures of her coming elopement in Paris with Nahuel. This beautiful couple now lives in Costa Rica where they met, even if Nahuel is coming from Argentina, and Trisha from the U.S.
Even if having pictures of them in their wedding outfits at Eiffel Tower was a must, Trisha told me about her love of this beautiful picturesque Paris made of typical cafes, cobbled streets, bridges and parisian buildings. The words she had in mind about their special day in Paris with a photographer around, were : “simple & romantic”. So I set up an itinerary that would tell a story about their special day in Paris, with a start at Eiffel Tower for this cloudy day of early Fall in Paris.
Trisha & Nahuel also had the great idea to rent an old CITROEN 2CV car, fitting perfectly with our parisian background of the day, and a perfect prop for some vintage and black and white photography in Paris ! The old car took us after Eiffel Tower closer to Notre-Dame Cathedral, where T&N had a coffee at the terrace of a splendid café, just before a walk to the gardens of Notre-Dame Cathedral, where our couple decided to get married (without celebrant or officiant) by exchanging their vows there ! The setting was just perfect for this magic moment, and is really one of my favorites, as for many photographers in Paris ! 😉
Merci Trisha & Nahuel ! A bientôt à Paris !
ps : The company renting those old cars in Paris is ParisAuthentic. Their drivers offer a charming tour of Paris for an unusual discovery of the capital ! Check there website : here.
