The winter rains have started. In just a few weeks' it will be the holiday season, and so one does expect rain this time of year in Paris.
What else can one expect? It's surprise proposal season, one of my favorite times of year! Couples flock to Paris during this time of year to see the city in its holiday glory and also what better time to ask your loved one to spend the rest of their lives with you?
I had the pleasure of meeting one such couple recently on a windy and rainy Paris Sunday morning. Now you'd think the weather would be horrible, but Paris really does shine in the rain.
This terrific couple from Texas have known each other a long time, in fact they have a business together as well. When Benson got down on one knee to ask Anna to marry him, it was truly a beautiful moment.
I was so impressed that they each had an umbrella, as it was so necessary. Both of them were dressed beautifully and their umbrellas had a bright color inside of them, which I think added to the beauty of the images.
We started at Trocadero, then made our way to my favorite little neighborhood near the Eiffel Tower and then to the bridge called Bir Hakeim. Along the way, I had a wonderful chat with these two super intelligent and super interesting people. Truly, my work sometimes doesn't even feel like work, it feels like meeting new friends.
They were beautiful to photograph, I loved Anna's long flowing hair. I can never get my hair to cooperate, but hers was so beautiful, even in the rain. Benson was really handsome in his suit.
I feel so fortunate to have met this dynamic couple, and I wish them so much happiness in their married life. They're great partners and love each other very much. What can I say, I love love!
