A pure white Eiffel Tower magical engagement Paris photo shoot

Gorgeous in white

Ulfat, who is from Israel, and visiting Paris for the second time, told me I’d find her in a white outfit, waiting for me at the Trocadero area of the Eiffel Tower. When I first saw her and her fiancé, Maxi, I was blown away with how beautiful they looked. Ulfat was dressed in a gorgeous white dress with bell sleeves and dainty lace and Max looked crisp in a white shirt and tan slacks.

Not only did Ulfat put a lot of thought into her dress, but she brought along some lovely props to use. She had a rose wreath for her hair, and some red roses that looked so real I bent down to smell them.

This dynamic couple became engaged earlier this year and thought it would be amazing to do a Paris engagement photo shoot at the Eiffel Tower while visiting.

I couldn’t have been happier to photograph them in the beautiful morning light!

From Trocadero to Bir Hakeim Bridge

What a delight this couple was to talk to! I visited Israel a few years’ ago, and I had a lot of fun talking about the delicious food (and mint tea), the amazing sights in Israel, and the beautiful weather, with copious sun. Ulfat told me that the summer had been very, very hot this year. Which was the same in Paris this summer, although not to the level of Israel, of course.

Ulfat and Max had a very easygoing style, and laughed a lot. They’re so in love, and my favorite images of them were of their embraces and kisses. During the photo session, Ulfat told me she was having a lot of fun, and I was too! It makes me so happy when my clients feel comfortable and enjoy their time with me in Paris.

Trocadero was our meeting point, with dramatic views of the Eiffel Tower from straight on. But I couldn’t resist taking the couple to the river side, as it had been closed due to construction all spring and summer. It’s one of my favorite places to photograph the Eiffel Tower (probably because I’m a Pisces and love the water).

From the river, we walked over to my favorite bridge to photograph the Eiffel Tower, the bridge of Bir Hakeim. This bridge is usually so busy, and it was busy again today, but also very peaceful as there was a bit less traffic this morning.

I loved how the pop of red color, both in Ulfat’s wreath and her bouquet, really made these images pop.

What a treat it was to photograph this couple in love, engaged, and enjoying their time together in Paris!
