Honeymoon photo session in Paris with Lily & Aaron

Honeymoon photo session with Paris photographer Fran Boloni

Lily and Aaron got married during this year, 2014, in San Antonio (Texas) and chosen Paris and Santorini as destinations for their honeymoon. They also head the brilliant idea to get creative for their traditionally called trash the dress sessions in both France and Greece. I had the privilege to take in charge their Paris honeymoon photos. What follows is a brief presentation of their honeymoon photo session in Paris. On this journey we covered the following iconic landmarks: Louvre Museum, Alexander III bridge and the Eiffel Tower.

We had such an amazing experience in Paris and this photo shoot topped off this portion of our honeymoon. Fran Boloni with Romantic Photography in Paris was such a pleasure to work with! He and his sidekick went above and beyond to drove us all over Paris to capture breathtaking photos. Lily and Aaron

During preparation we decided that Lily will change attire for every location. If you were wondering if that’s possible, the answer is a definite YES. So we started the session at Louvre. There we wanted to capture the architecture of the old kings palace and the modernity of the pyramid.

After this warm up session we went in the direction of Alexander 3 bridge. Meanwhile Lily changed in her second dress. As we needed to pass on Champs Elysées on our way to the bridge, we stopped in the middle of the road and took a few pictures with the Arc de Triomphe in the background. They say in real life photography you need to get lucky sometimes. This was indeed a lucky shot and I felt so happy having this guy looking at the couple in the moment I clicked on the shutter, allowing me to get away with a unique picture.

We also prepared some props along with the dress change, to give that little extra something to Lily and Aaron’s Paris pictures. Talking of balloons, these are probably the best props for all type of Paris photos, especially Paris pre wedding pictures.

Alexander III bridge gives so many perspectives and so many possibilities to a photographer. We tried to avoid clichés and opt for some more intimate pictures . The balloons are there to emphasize the couples celebration of love in the most romantic city in the world.

The sun was already setting as you can see in the following picture, so we decided to jump in the car and head to our last location, the one and only Eiffel Tower.

The sunset that day was simply magnificent and color perfect. But you most remember that the perfect moment for night photos is the moment right after the sunset. For 20 minutes, the ambient light gets even with the lights on the Eiffel Tower and the Parisian lamps, while the sky becomes of an intense dark blue.

Love on the honeymoon in Paris

So we only had 20 minutes to make all of our Eiffel Tower pictures, taking into consideration the tourists passing by and getting in the frame. Oh, there were some ladies who literally stopped for several minutes and took pictures of us and then asked to get each of them a few photos with the bride and groom. I think we made it to so many Facebook walls that day.

In Paris, once the sun sets completely we get the lights out and shoot night photography. I have a preference for night photos, mostly because they bring more mystery than photos taken in daylight. My personal favorite picture from this honeymoon photo session is the picture below. It just conveys so much right emotion. At this moment the couple was totally comfortable with the photographer and you can clearly see it in the image. You’ll also notice that the sky didn’t completely darkened, it is still dark blue, contributing to the powerful emotion of the picture.

Fran also brought props and ideas for the photo shoot. He’s truly passionate about his art and is willing to lay on the ground or run in the middle of the street just to capture “The Shot”. Thank you Fran for the wonderful experience and pictures !!! Lily and Aaron
