From the photographer… The city of Paris is my home. I moved in to California over the course of time, but Paris will always remain a place next to my heart. When I walk around the City Hall at San Francisco, the architectural design of the building strongly reminds of my home town. I can imagine the Les Tuileries gates along with the stunning gardens and the magnificent structural design. Lindsey also has an overwhelming love for Paris. When we collaborated for a photo shoot, we thought of making an ultimate romantic wedding that we would hope to see in Paris. The scooter detail was a must for the shoot as well as the table set for two, the macarons, the whimsical dress, the “Thank You” postcards that contained classical images of Paris, the cakes, and the floral arrangements that was made by Max Gill Design. All of these details were essential in depicting a natural feel of the Parisian mood. We wanted to imbibe the distinct romantic essence of the place even though everything was taken in here. All of the details added represent the typical things that you see in Paris, so they should all be included in the pictures to create that certain European style that you can only seen in the city of Paris. The photo shoot went and everything was taken on film. We had such a great time working with the team and everything went smoothly as possible. And as a result, all of the photos came out as perfect as they were expected to be. The stylish Parisian elements really exude the unique romantic feel of the place as if we have taken all the shots in the city of love itself. Truly, we can say that we had a “la vie en rose” for a day and really enjoyed it.
From Lindsey Relyea… My inspiration from the shoot was derived from my obsession of France as well as my engagement in Paris which happened just recently. I see the hints of French and Parisian influence here in North Carolina through their romantic gardens and dramatic architectural designs. I wanted to highlight the use of soft pastels during the photo shoot to add a touch of sophistication and have fun the way the French way. The city hall in San Francisco was truly a remarkable backdrop for the whole activity though nothing could top the Eiffel Tower.
I dreamed of having a wedding in Paris with the Eiffel Tower on the background, strolling through the Jardin de Luxemburg while drinking champagne, and riding off the sunset with our Vespa scooters and on our way to the gardens for dinner.
