Shady and Hagar are such a life-loving and easygoing young couple that we can't wait to see them back in Paris again!

At the very end of August, Paris welcomed Guillaume and Robin with a few clouds in the sky, however, the mood of this romantic portrait session was undeniably sunny.

Our photographer Catherine O'Hara did a wonderful job capturing this lovely couple in the City of Love!
