Paris – the City of Love and Lovers
Valentine’s Day 2012
Couples photography to make your heart sing! One of my most memorable sessions from last year was a magical story of love and romance.
It was a cold bright morning and the frosty streets of Montmatre glistened in the early light. Two lovers walked arm in arm through the winding streets and climbed the hill to Basilique Sacre Coeur. Paris sprawled beneath them in a myriad of twisting streets, each with a story to tell. Sitting on a bench to admire the view, a small gift box was handed to her, and then with a broad smile “Happy Valentine”s Day”. Her heart skipped a beat as she unwrapped the box to find a silver ring inscribed with the words “No Ordinary Love” – the inside of the ring bore a simple inscription of four words “Will you marry me?”
It is simply one of the most romantic and beautiful proposals of all time and when the story was recounted to me I cried.
With kind permission of the fabulous couple concerned I have shared some of their images from a session to celebrate their engagement and to capture their wonderful story. How will you tell your story in the season of love?
