Paris is always a good idea, they say. And they are absolutely right!

Rose & Alex are from the US. They love traveling and although they had never been to Paris before, it seemed like the perfect destination for their elopement. Paris is such a beautiful city full of elegance and romance. Especially in May, when nature is in full bloom, we can say it looks and feels its best!

The ceremony and exchange of vows followed at one of our all-time favorite spots. The Tuileries gardens. Having the impressive Louvre musem at their side. Alex got emotional during that part and it’s the sweetest thing to letting your emotions surface. After all that is what elopements are about. Enjoy every moment away from stereotypes and letting yourself enjoy and feel every part of the day!

A few words from Elias, the photographer in Paris

As a destination photographer, I love Paris very much and I’m always excited to visit it! It offers so many excellent opportunities for photos. Starting the day early enough was a great help to avoid lots of tourists and traffic.
