Story

I shot the engagement of Y&J in Barcelona in 2018, and in 2019 they decided to cancel their big wedding in California and make one of their dreams become a reality. They brought an intimate circle of family with them to Paris and flew me out to document their beautiful celebration.

This shot was done on the day after the wedding, in the historical hotel Shangri-La located in the heart of the city overlooking the Eiffel tower. Can there be anything more romantic than this?!

The only challenge I had with this shot was the slight difference between the interior and exterior, that’s why I had to shoot it quite underexposed in order not to lose the Eiffel tower in the background, which is one of the key elements of this composition.
