This time I wasn’t an engagement photographer in Paris just for one day. After a really fun and dynamic engagement session with Sol & David at the Trocadero, the Eiffel Tower, the Alexandre III Bridge and Montmartre, there was also another day and a few additional hours of our photo adventure.
We started the second day in Versailles, where David comes from, so it’s special to him. We took some photographs in front of the Palace of Versailles (French: Château de Versailles), the principal royal residence of France from 1682, under Louis XIV, until the start of the French Revolution in 1789, under Louis XVI. Versailles is located about 20 kilometers outside of Paris.
The Paris Metro
Then we traveled back to the center of Paris. Sol’s special wish was to do some pre-wedding photographs in front of the blue wall. We were lucky to find a really great shade of blue in the underground, at one of the metro stations. The Paris Metro (French: Métro de Paris) is the second-busiest metro system in Europe, 214 kilometers long, with 302 stations.
The Paris Opera
We finished the shooting at the Paris Opera (French: Opéra de Paris). Sol was playing with her dress, which was blowing up when she was standing over an air vent. It was just like an iconic ‘flying skirt’ moment from the movie ‘The Seven Year Itch’ when the white dress of Marilyn Monroe blew up while she was standing over a subway grate in New York. We had so much fun.
I enjoyed being again the engagement photographer in Paris. Sol and David, thank you for two incredible days, so colorful and full of passion. All the best to Mexico!
