Nearly a year after their destination wedding on the Côte d’Azur, I spent the morning with California-based couple Sandy and Sean capturing their love story in Paris. As a Paris fine art photographer, I could not have asked for a more beautiful sunrise and backdrop to perfectly showcase this amazing couple’s joyful and luminous romance. Scroll down to see more of this magical morning!

I met Sandy and Sean on my favorite bride in Paris – Pont Alexandre III – just as the sun began to rise. Not only is this couple gorgeous and incredibly stylish, but they are so incredibly nice and so in love. Within moments I felt like I was simply spending the morning with old friends, and they completely relaxed in front of the camera with me.
One of the best parts about an anniversary or engagement session in Paris is that, not only is the city’s beauty an incredibly elegant backdrop for photos, but it also has a way of distracting your attention away from the camera and towards each other. This makes for some of the most authentic and romantic moments!
We had planned to head to Île de la Cite next, but the light was so incredible so we decided to head to the Louvre for a few photos under the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. And, how glad I am that we did – just look at these photos!
Finally we hopped into a taxi to our final destination – the beautiful Place Dauphine on Île de la Cite. Built in 1607 by Henri IV, Place Dauphine was named after his son, the Dauphin of France, who would later become King Louis XIII. This beautiful little square in the center of the Seine has a dreamy village-like feel that somehow always remains quiet, even though it’s just steps away from some of the most popular monuments and vistas in the city.
Sandy and Sean, I am so thankful to know you both and to have had the pleasure of capturing your beautiful love in France – the country that means so much to you. Merci beaucoup!
