A professional portrait session in the world capital of fashion for a lady with style? Absolutely!

A month before their wedding, Hagar and Shady took a short romantic break in Paris. Together with photographer Nadia Gric, they walked around the ornate Alexandre III bridge and by the Seine river, discovering the well-known, as well as some secret corners of Paris with the best views of the Eiffel tower. Shady and Hagar are such a life-loving and easygoing young couple that we can't wait to see them back in Paris again!

That day, Sofia and Larry celebrated their love in Paris, while our photographer Elena Usacheva captured the best moments of it!

You in Paris: Romantic Walk on St Valentine's Day for Izabella and Family

Izabella contacted us just before St Valentine's day asking if we had some availability for a portrait session for her and her family. And we did! On February 14th, our photographer Catherine O'Hara met Izabella, her husband and their lovely baby girl by the Louvre pyramid for a romantic family portrait session. Grey skies and even a few drops of rain did not scare this lovely young family from enjoying their walk by the river Seine, in the gardens of Palais Royal and even by the Eiffel tower!

Xiaohan and her husband Bo visited Paris in late December, when winter holiday celebrations were in full swing. They met our photographer Nadia Gric for a portrait session for two in various locations in Paris: around Notre Dame cathedral and by the Louvre, on Pont des Arts and around the Eiffel tower. What a perfect time to capture some romantic moments in winter Paris among the cozy Christmas tree lights!

Paris is not only the City of Love, but also a place of wonderful surprises! Keith and his girlfriend Sally met our photographer Elena Usacheva on a December afternoon for a photo walk around the Louvre, the gardens of Palais Royal and of course the iconic Eiffel tower. Sally didn't know that Keith planned their trip for a very special reason and was completely surprised when Keith got on his knee with an engagement ring in his hands! Our sincere congratulations to this wonderful couple!

After the first portrait session with her husband, Betsy brought her entire family of 11 people to capture memories of them in the City of Light. They met our photographer Elena Usacheva for a stroll around the Eiffel tower and had lots of fun in front of the camera. The more the merrier!

You in London: Creating Memories for Thomas and Winnie

You in London: Creating Memories for Thomas and Winnie

A couple from Hong Kong, Winnie and Thomas wanted to keep the memories of their stay in London, so different from their hometown. They met our photographer Hermione McCosh for a lovely walk around Big Ben and the Embankment earlier this year. Classic red double-deckers, telephone booths, umbrellas and of course lots of giggles made this portrait session in London truly unforgettable!

Low Season Travel Photography: In Search of Winter Seascapes

Low Season Travel Photography: In Search of Winter Seascapes

Warm and welcoming in summer months, seaside in low season is a perfect place for travel and landscape photographers. Subdued colours, fantastic views and barely anyone around - isn't it a true paradise for thoughtful landscape hunters? Armed not only with their trusty camera, but also with good walking shoes and jackets, they head out in search of wintry beauty of nature...

Inspired by the beautiful elopement of their friends Julianne and Jason on Côte d'Azur, Jaclyn and Jason decided to have their own romantic portrait session around the Eiffel tower in Paris. On a sunny September morning, they met our photographer Nadia Gric for some portraits around one of the most iconic landmarks in the world. Throughout the session, Derek simply couldn't take his eyes off his beautiful wife!

You in Paris: Heart of Paris for Jean Ann and Rex

You in Paris: Heart of Paris for Jean Ann and Rex

While the Eiffel tower is the most visited landmark of Paris, Île de la Cité with Notre Dame cathedral is the true heart of it. Jean Ann and Rex met our photographer Elena Usacheva in this very place where the city of Paris started many centuries ago, for a relaxed stroll along the Seine river and medieval streets of the two islands. And of course no portrait session is complete without a cup of coffee in a traditional Parisian café!

Only a couple of months have passed after Barbara's first portrait session in Paris and she is now back again, this time with her beloved Mattia! Our photographer Catherine O'Hara met this lovely Italian couple in the afternoon by Notre Dame cathedral to capture some of the best moments on Parisian bridges, by the Seine river, and in front of the famous Shakespeare's bookstore. And of course there is no way to end a romantic portrait session without delicious raspberry cake and champagne!
