For a family portrait session on their first trip to Paris, Gloria, her husband Brandon, and two kids Kyle and Kayla chose the most iconic background: the Eiffel tower. They met our photographer Elena Usacheva for a stroll on Bir Hakeim bridge, Trocadero gardens and of course the famous Trocadero esplanade, offering one of the best views of the landmark. As usually with Elena, they had not only great photos, but also lots of fun!

Lovely Flavia from Brazil met our photographer Elena Usacheva for a portrait session in early June, at the arrival of a summer season in Paris, when the days are long and the city is full of sunlight.

A month before their wedding, Hagar and Shady took a short romantic break in Paris.

Our sincere congratulations to this wonderful couple!
A couple from Hong Kong, Winnie and Thomas wanted to keep the memories of their stay in London, so different from their hometown.
