SPRING TIME IN PARIS / by Monique Pantel

Hi loves!

I've been working like crazy in Paris over the past 3 days and yesterday was just everything. I wanted to share some sneak peeks with you!

I had the most amazing morning with Jessamy and Charles (real couple!) and had the loveliest time shooting their engagement session at the Trocadero and Le Cadre at Musee du Louvre. They met and live in Paris and craved an engagement shoot that reflected their real life in Paris.

After our shoot we popped a bottle of Ruinard champagne in the middle of Le Cadre. We sat on a stone bench, sipping bubbly, surrounded by historic architecture. Charles recounted the tale of how he asked Jessamy to marry him (it's freaking hilarious and lies somewhere between PG13 + rated R - so I'll leave it at that). After, Jessamy and I - and Holly Rose of Leotie Lovely (a Parisian Eco Lifestyle Blogger, one of my besties who assisted on this engagement session) chowed down on the best Ramen in Paris. Such a good day!

These two had such a connection and being in Paris - the city of LOVE - it was just so inspiring. I feel creatively re-energized and totally lit up by my past few days here in Paris!

I'm excited to share all of the creative work I'm shooting over the next week!

Bisous de Paris!
