Back in the Dress: Paris, France

I had the most amazing opportunity to meet up with our bride Stephanie to create a portrait of her back in her dress in her home country of France. Stephanie's gown is by San Patrick, style is Bahia in silk chiffon, available at The Dressing Room. We met Stephanie first at the Tour Eiffel (Eiffel Tower) and then headed to Jardin du Luxembourg (Luxembourg Gardens).

When we finished our session in Paris we headed to Stephanie's home town of Lille, France where we met up with Nicolas. It was so amazing to be guided through this beautiful and historic city by locals!

We brought Stephanie and Nicolas's wedding invitation downtown so we could photograph it in the setting where their love all began:) The beautiful invitation was designed and created by Not From a Box invitations.

We were also able to photograph Rachel, a beautiful Parisian model, in a gown and accessories styled by Judy Ferrara of The Dressing Room all around Paris. The wedding gown is from Jenny Yoo, earrings by Crislu and crystal accent piece is an original available exclusively at The Dressing Room.

Pont des Arts ~ these are referred to as the love locks... couples leave them on the bridge with their names or initials and sometimes the date.
