About This Elopement in the Streets of Paris

“There is always something magical in the atmosphere of Paris, as we all know. The great photographers of the past, such as Bresson or Doisneau, have already extensively portrayed Paris in all its beauty and elegance. Victor Hugo once said, ‘To breathe Paris preserves the soul’, and having the fortune to tell the story of two beautiful souls like Lea and Thomas through their passions, their love, and their city is something incredible. We spent an entire day with them, from the morning in Montmartre with Thomas taking some photographs of Lea with his film camera Voigtlander (super!), then in their apartment where they developed the photos in an improvised darkroom in the living room, to the afternoon with their elopement in front of the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre.” [Federico and Barbara, the photographers]

Permit and Planning for a Paris Elopement

“Since this is a symbolic engagement + elopement, we had no major difficulties with permits. We were able to shoot without any problems in the area of the Louvre, Montmartre, and Place du Trocadero (where they decided to exchange rings and vows).

Paris is a beautiful city on every corner, but also very big. Traveling can be long due to the distance and traffic. We recommend focusing on a maximum of 2 or 3 locations for an elopement like this.” [Federico and Barbara, the photographers]

Memorable Moments During This Elopement

From the photographer:

“Lea and Thomas are two incredible young people. She is a model, who designs and sells vintage clothes; he is an actor and aspiring photographer. It was amazing to use their unique qualities to tell their Story and their Love. For us, it is essential to get to know the couples a bit before shooting, so that we can personalize the story and narrative even more. They trusted us completely and gave us carte blanche on everything, they just wanted to enjoy the day and that’s what happened.

The best moments for us were definitely developing the photos in the darkroom and the ceremony in front of the Eiffel Tower. Original and classic situations within a few hours. It was truly incredible. A beautiful experience.”

Teaming Up With The Right Vendors

It was an incredible experience for us as well. Elopement weddings are always a true ode to love. An intimate and pure moment that people give themselves, which is why finding the right photographer for your elopement in Paris is extremely important.

For services like this, we love to get to know people’s stories to make the service as personal as possible, like a made-to-measure suit. Lea and Thomas are two Art and Vintage enthusiasts: he aspires to become an Actor and a Photographer, while she draws and produces Vintage clothing. On their elopement wedding day, they wanted to combine all these nuances that distinguish them and we were inspired by their great passions for the photographic storytelling.” [Federico and Barbara, the photographers]
