I am a very lucky girl. My husband and I celebrated 7 years of marriage in July 2014. 7 years! I can’t believe how quickly time is flying by. On our anniversary, I got to open my card from him, and he really hit it out of the park this year as far as anniversary presents go.
Our trip to Paris had been in the books for a couple months already and I kept telling him that was all I wanted. When I opened my card, I had learned that we had a private photo session in front of the Eiffel Tower planned for our stay in Paris. We had the best of the best taking our pictures for us too! Brian from French Grey Photography, is the kind of person you dream of working with. He is, for lack of a better word, genius.
These are by far, my most favorite souvenirs I’ve ever brought home from any trip. The hubs has set the bar really high for himself, can’t wait to see how he tackles 8 years!
These are just a few of the many uh-mazing pictures we got from our session. We got to the tower bright and early and had the whole area to ourselves for the most part. To say it was “magical” is an extreme understatement.
The entire session, I just kept saying “oh my gosh, I can’t believe we are doing this!”
After the tower, Brian took us to this quaint area that felt very “french”. I mean, I didn’t travel across the world to get pictures of us that weren’t “french” looking, right?
By then, it was time for a costume change for me. I changed into something a little more comfortable and sat down for a minute with a cup of espresso and hot chocolate.
After our snack, we decided to walk around the neighborhood and found some more stunning locations to have fun in. It’s not that hard in Paris though to find beautiful photogenic locations to be honest.
When our session was over, I was so sad. We had a blast with Brian and he made us feel so comfortable. I am so lucky to be able to travel the way my husband and I do; but to have these gorgeous pictures taken as well, on a dream trip of mine, well that’s just icing.
If you are going to Paris, I can’t recommend Brian at French Grey Photography enough. These are by far the best kind of souvenirs. Forget the Eiffel Tower lighter and the cheesy beret, spend a little money and capture some memories instead.
