It all started with a Yes!
I had the extreme honor of capturing the marriage proposal of Issa and Ashley in the most romantic city on earth, Paris, France. Issa and Ashley love water, so Issa’s surprise proposal was riverside with a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower. You can read more about their surprise proposal here.
The next day, Issa planned an engagement session. Now, Ashley looked like a million bucks for her (surprise) proposal, but that’s because she was dressed formally for dinner. She had no idea what was to take place. The next day, however, she was fully prepared for an hour-long engagement session.
Being that the proposal was with a view of the Eiffel Tower, the couple chose the Louvre for their engagement photos, and what an amazing choice! The best thing about the Louvre is its stunning architecture, it’s timeless and classic and so very Parisian.
Class at the Louvre
This is a classy couple! I was so impressed with Ashley’s starch white dress. It was classic and beautiful. She wore it beautifully and honestly, I felt a bit envious. You see, I’ve never been able to wear anything white my whole life. I’m such a klutz, I’d spill food or drink on it, or the ink from my pen would run onto it, or the dog would jump on it with his dirty paws. But Ashley had none of those issues and looked stunning.
Issa was no slouch himself, this is a man who knows how to properly wear a suit!
Both of them looked amazing and as you can see from the images from their Paris engagement session, they look a couple in love from a fairytale storybook.
They can dance!
I always like to have my couples do something that comes naturally to them. Whether that’s laughter, or super romantic kisses—anything that ties them together as a couple will of course look the very best in the photographs. It was pretty clear from the very beginning that Ashley had a special skill, she is a dancer! It was clear in the fluid and elegant way she moved, and Issa was a great dancer too, so I suggested we incorporate some dance into the photos, and what fun it was!
I am so thrilled for this pretty couple with their surprise proposal and engagement session in Paris! They ooze style, class and sophistication and were an absolute delight to photograph and get to know.
Thank you Issa, for contacting me and Ashley for being so incredibly fun to work with!
See you soon in Paris!
