Melissa & Charles were married in June. They wanted to continue the carnival/carousel theme of their wedding for their newlywed photos in Paris. We loved the idea.
Their session began at the carousel near Trocadero - with the Eiffel Tower as their backdrop. Melissa was wearing a gorgeous Givenchy gown - she was stunning! A few other stops in that area included Pont Bir Hakeim (the bridge from Inception) and a walk along the Seine. The session continued with a short Metro ride to the Tuileries Garden near the Louvre. Every Summer, there is La Fete Foraine du Jardin del Tuileries that takes over a section of the gardens ending near the Louvre. The carnival is famous for the huge ferris wheel that dominates the Paris skyline. From the carnival, a quick walk to the courtyard of the 17th century Palais Royal and the black and white marble pillars by French artist Daniel Buren.
A gorgeous summer evening coupled with great light and an in love couple makes for a perfect Paris photo session.
