During my last month in Paris, an absolute highlight for me was meeting up with the lovely Breanna of Petite Abeille Design and spending a golden morning exploring the city together, creating imagery for her beautiful brand. Breanna and I have been friends on Instagram for years, and when we found out that our paths would cross by literally twelve hours we knew we had to somehow had to squeeze in a shoot.
As a Paris branding photographer, I love using my years of luxury branding experience to work alongside my clients and create imagery that showcases their brand and personality in a sophisticated and artistic aesthetic. For Breanna, this meant creating a visual representation of her love of Paris (she lived there for two years while studying for her Master’s degree) and passion for everyday luxuries. If you have followed Breanna at all, you will know that she has the most joyful personality and elegant style, so I wanted her session to feel both chic and editorial yet fun and approachable – just like Breanna.
We met at Place Vendôme at sunrise and began outside of one of the most iconic locations in the city (and one of my absolute favorite wedding venues) – the Ritz Paris. Although during most hours of the day Place Vendôme is buzzing with people, on an early Sunday morning we literally had the entire area to ourselves. Such a dream! From there, it was off to Le Louvre and Jardin des Tuileries where Breanna changed into her second look – a more relaxed Rebecca Taylor dress paired with a straw pot de miel and hat – perfect for the South of France. Finally, it was off to Île de la Cité where we explored the beautiful Pont Neuf (one of my favorite spots for photos – as also seen in Samantha & Pierre’s honeymoon session here) and finally to the charming Place Dauphine.
It was such a pleasure finally meeting sweet Breanna of Petite Abeille Design. Her love of French culture and her amazing laugh are both contagious, and if you are planning a destination wedding in France and are looking for event designer and florist to create a truly beautiful experience for you and your guests, I couldn’t recommend Breanna enough!
