If you go to Paris

“As it has always been, Paris is a million different things to a million people”. (the Lonely Planet)

To us it was late nights and long mornings, cafes, bookstores, street markets, lovers, art, history, culture…This is the longest post I have ever blogged and still these are only a few of the photos we came home with after visiting Paris for a few days last summer. In my daydreams sometimes I live in the Latin Quarter in Paris in an old apartment with tall ceilings and hanging plants.  If you’ve spent time in Paris you will know why, there’s just something about Paris.

Happy New Year + Paris

We are looking forward to a great year (and a busy one!) and to photographing some amazing weddings!  One of the highlights of 2010 was our month-long trip to Italy and Paris.  We took thousands of photos; so many we haven’t had the chance to go through them all yet.  We’re planning on posting some of the highlights over the next few weeks but for now here’s a few to start off.  If you’re ever in Paris DON’T MISS this little bookstore full to the brim with new and used books (in English), and nooks and crannies for cozying up with a good book.

But first, thank you to all our couples of 2010.  May your first year together be better than you ever imagined
