I don’t often write about my personal life here on my blog, but now that I’m engaged I figured this could help other couples who come to Paris and want to get photos taken of them. I see so many couples here in Paris hiring photographers for their proposals, and their engagement photos or they’ll actually bring their wedding dresses here and take photos around Paris. Back in February of this year, a photographer reached out to me and asked if I would do a “faux wedding shoot” so that she could take photos of this dress and have her version of a styled wedding in Paris. We did it on Valentines day, and I have to say I was really nervous and embarrassed but it was really fun!
Edgar and I got engaged a few weeks ago and we wanted to get our photos done in our neighborhood here in Paris. I found Brandie on Instagram ahile back from liking her aesthetic, so I was thrilled when I found out she does engagement and bridal shoots as well. Her Instagram is @brandieraaschphoto. Brandie is an American here in Paris, so if you don’t speak French and are looking for an English speaker, Brandie is your gal! Here are a few photos that we love!
We woke up at the crack of dawn so that we could have most of the locations to ourself, luckily Edgar and I live in the 1st arrondissement right next to the Louvre and Palais Royal, so we didn’t have to venture too far from home.
It can be difficult to find a photographer you like, espeically in another country. My best tip is to look on instagram for photographers so you can find someone who matches your aestehtic. Look for hashtags like: #parisphotographer #parisengagementphotographer
And our favorite ❤
