Hello Dear Ones

Ever since I’ve followed bloggers such as Gary Pepper GirlZanita and Paris in Four Months I had always dreamed of shooting stunning images in front of the romantic and historical Eiffel Tower joining many other photographers before me. To me, it is such a symbol of Romanticism, of class and glamour and of a time where style was so delicate and refined.

My travels were filled with moments of wonder, moments of delight, moments of magic and moments to remember. Indescribable moments which I had to pinch myself and count my lucky stars. Shooting with the amazing Alexia from Pascal Et Al. with the grandeur of Paris as our backdrop, was one of those memorable moments. Taken in the presence of the amazing Eiffel Tower with the beauty of the Parisian landscape as our inspiration, these images encapsulates the classic Parisian beauty and fulfilled my dream of shooting in Paris. I am so proud of these images and so excited to being sharing them with you.

Our days together, spent with our dear friends Kate and Steph, involved finding stunning locations in Paris, eating macaroons and creating beautiful images.

Keep Chasing your dreams my Dear Ones, you never know when they will happen!

The above locations in order;

1) Laduree (Best Macaroons  in Paris, as seen in our Instagram )
2) Trocadero (Best place to view the Eiffel Tower)
3) Alexander III Bridge (The Most Beautiful Bridge in Paris)

Finally back in Melbourne after six months.

If anyone is interested in any collaboration shoot us a message!

Looking forward to hearing from you!

    These are all gorgeous! I especially love the shots at Laduree, the colours look so dreamy! I can also definitely see the style and inspiration from Gary Pepper reflected through this photoshoot. What a dream to be shooting in Paris 🙂
