Wedding photos



This beautiful couple posed for photos on Ile Saint-Louis on the Quai d'Orleans.  
The temperature was a brisk, 
but the photographer moved quickly to get the desired photos.


The American photographer got her share of photos as well from above.

The Île St.-Louis is a nice place for wedding photos. I think I would prefer the Jardin du Luxembourg though.

So Genie, how did you manage to gatecrash their photo session?!

Hello Genie:
This is so enchanting, and such a refreshing change from the more conventional wedding photographs which, to be honest, we find somewhat tedious.

What we love here is that so difficult to describe expression on the groom's face.

Joe said...

You were in the right place at the right time Genie. Both of their expressions are priceless. Ciao J.

Beautiful ... And, I LOVE her wrap!

Paulita said...

They look so French. I can't imagine an American bride having a fur like that to throw over her wedding dress.

Bibi said...

Ha, was about to say you were quick, too. This is a handsome couple. Love her vest or whatever you call it--bolero?

Un décor un peu plus original que le parc Monceau.

Georges Bizet's Carmen, albeit with a happy ending.
Great shot!

What a lovely jacket to go over that dress...it must have been cold! They make a striking couple. :)

Alexa said...

I'll bet your photos were just as good as those of the photog they hired! (And it's certainly a different angle.)

Mary said...

Wow! They're both beautiful individually, and more so as a couple. I love her fur too. It's gorgeous! :)

Starman said...

Could you tell if they were an actual "couple". I get the feeling they're just posing.

Jack said...

I have taken some nice photos of couples all dressed up for the photographer Your photos today are good.

I have a series of this couple which I saw on the quai as we crossed Pont St-Louis. It was a chilly day in January and they were taking pre-wedding (I presume) photos. The photographer's assistant was holding her little fur jacket. In this shot, the groom-to-be was helping her into her Uggs. They were definitely a couple.

I was standing above the quai and shooting freely.

Bises,
Genie

Beautiful capture here Genie, how lucky to be in the right place at the right time oui!

B & W is a good choice for this, Genie. I really like that they're oblivious to you and your camera. Nice find.

How exotic they look, how stunning! Genie, thank you kindly for your recent notes. I think you are as lovely as your photos...~Rita

Used to be a wedding photographer, in Portugal. Hard to get an interesting photo.

Great picture. I saw bridal couples most days in Paris last time, we didn't get this close though.
