This rainy day winter engagement session at the Louvre in Paris is full of classic, timeless Parisian romance. Anne Carole and Adam were absolutely radiant in front of the camera and were so sweet with each other. I love how quiet and tender their love is and how tangibly you can feel it in these images. The entire session was shot on film, giving it a soft, organic, timeless feel. And as welcome as sun would have been, I really love the cloudy day tones we achieved.
THE LOUVRE MAKES FOR A STUNNING BACKDROP
We spent a windy, chilly, rainy January morning in the courtyard by the Louvre, taking advantage of the beautiful architecture. We explored the courtyard, the columned hallways, and the shrub-lined walkways adjacent to the museum. Each area gave us a unique angle for capturing the charm of this part of Paris. The rainy morning meant we had plenty of room to maneuver without tourists, giving us the feel of being completely alone with these stunning backdrops.
YOU CAN’T GO WRONG WITH A CLASSIC BLACK SUIT AND BLACK DRESS
Anne & Adam’s black attire was absolutely perfect against the neutral backdrop of the museum and looked so elegant. Anne Carole’s dress was embellished with a floral pattern and lined with ruffles, which added a perfect touch of femininity and romance to our shoot.
The high-low shape of the skirt flowed beautifully, especially when caught by the wind, and gave a lovely subtle wow factor. Adam sported a sleek, slim-fitting black suit, a white shirt, and black shoes. Very classic. Grooms, you can never go wrong with a look like this for your engagement shoot.
PROFESSIONAL HAIR & MAKEUP ALWAYS AMPS UP THE ELEGANCE
Paris-based makeup and hair artist, Joleen Emory, gave Anne Carole a beautifully soft and classic look with hair and makeup. She did a chic low twisted bun off to the side and utilized a natural, neutral color palette for the makeup. It looked completely fresh and effortless.
It was an absolute pleasure photographing this sweet couple and I’m thrilled to be able to share their images. If you missed their feature on French Wedding Style, be sure to check it out here!
