Every once in a while you come across a couple that literally blows your mind, the kind of people you wanna be best friends with, the kind that you secretly hope would hire you as their personal photographer, the kind that you adore from the very first email exchange on… Ben & Jennie (from San Diego) are definitely one of those couples! Jennie has been following my journey for quite a while and practically the day after her long time boyfriend Ben popped the big question, she wrote to me to set a date for their Parisienne engagement session.
You can imagine how excited I was to return to the city of lights after my last rainy session in December (see here and here) and how much I was looking forward to photograph Ben and Jennie in this beautiful scenery! I seriously had the best time with these two and I just couldn’t stop shooting them… I think everyone would agree that they are drop-dead-gorgeous as a couple and let me tell you… I could not take a bad picture of them!
After I initially went through their images I sent a message to Jennie saying: “That’s it!!! I refuse to edit your pictures… they are all so goddamn gorgeous I can’t even handle it! How am I supposed to pick? IMPOSSIBLE. Sorry. You guys need to come back for another shoot! ” and I meant every single word… as I couldn’t just narrow down the images to one post, it will be a two part session starting with the images we took in front of the famous Laduree on Champs Elysee and frolicking on the streets of Paris…. next time I show you the real heartbreakers we shot around the Eiffel Tower. Coming soon!
Thank you Ben and Jennie for choosing me to capture this very special occassion for you in Paris! You have been amazing! I cannot wait to catch up and work with you again some day soon! HAPPY WEDDING PLANNING!!!
