A magic proposal
A few weeks before the session, Javier committed a wedding photographer because he wanted a great souvenir of his proposal in Paris. It was also their first trip here for both.
Before leaving for Paris, he said to his girlfriend Jen he would plan to offer her a short photo session.
The Place du Trocadéro is a very touristic and very crowded area, so the session took place in front of the Eiffel Tower in a quiet little street with a spectacular view.
After this I lead our beautiful couple towards the Trocadero garden.
At winter, trees has no leaves, we can easily see the Eiffel Tower in the background.
I decided to shoot some pictures with a deported flash to have different styles.
I had the feeling Javier was a little bit stressed just before proposing…
I made a sign to him, so he could understand it was time to make his proposal.
I was standing on the side of a little pond, in order to have the reflexion of the couple on the surface of the water, when suddenly Javier put his knee on the grass and made his proposal.
Jen was surprised ! She put her hand in front of her mouth and said with a smile "I do"…
We finished our session just under the Eiffel Tower with a stunning view, as the tower was just starting to light.
