Paris Portrait Session: Marisa and Jonathan’s Paris Honeymoon

August 22, 2019

The platform at Trocadéro was slick and glistening, sunlight barely poking through the clouds at 7 a.m. The inclement weather, however, did not prevent Jonathan and Marisa from totally rocking their Paris portraits! These two fellow Californians were as kind and sweet as could be, and on top of that, they had amazing style. To my delight, Marisa’s favourite colour is also pink, which was the colour scheme for this session. Fluffy, flowing skirts are definitely what I am aspiring to in my personal wardrobe. (You also must peep her shoes!! I’d fall flat on my face wearing them, but photographing them was oh-so fun!!!!) Jonathan came very dapper in a grey suit and pink button-down to match. Can you say *all the heart eyes*?

Due to logistics, we changed our route and skipped Jardin du Luxembourg (next time!) for a stroll through my side of the 7th arrondissement. We took a pause, of course, at Carette, my favorite tea salon for photographs! Two hot chocolates, one kouign amann (my favorite pastry!), and a pain au chocolat, s’il vous plaît!

To wrap it up, we did two of my other favorite activities: Stop at a florist (for the most lovely pink bouquet) and find some delicious doors. The doors here make me swoon. And all the while, it was so fun to chat with them and know them a bit better! I learned that they love taking walks around the neighbourhood together — almost/every day; Jonathan and I like to cook, and Marisa is amazing with makeup (she did her own for this morning)!!!

I walked away in the rain (it finally began to pour after we wrapped, whew!) feeling like I made two new friends. I hope your first Paris adventure was as magical as you hoped! Merci mille fois for spending part of it with me!
