All of my clients quickly become friends — there’s an intimacy that comes with capturing special moments, and while we get to chat in between shots we really form a bond, which is one of my favorite parts of getting to do what I do every day. It’s EXTRA special when those clients are people I already know and love very much! My dear friend Jillian and her boyfriend (now fiancé! YAY!) came all the way from the USA to visit us in France for our wedding; while I was just a little busy that week getting ready to marry Pyk, Valeriya had an amazing session with Paul and Jillian at Trocadero and Pont Bir Hakeim.
Jillian and I met in art school — she’s a portrait and wedding photographer back home in the Massachusetts area — and it was so incredibly special to have them attend our big day. She and I are so close, and even from across an ocean we are constantly chatting about everything, from our businesses, art, and of course just silly friend stuff!
The early morning summer sun was just perfect for these moments. Between Jilian’s etherial gown and the love between these two… talk about DREAMY!
This was Paul’s first time in Paris, and it was so fun to see the city through his eyes for the first time. Paris is one of those magical places where you just can’t replace the first time you see the Eiffel Tower, the first delicious coffee at a local cafe, or the first time you step through the doors of the Louvre!
Jillian & Paul, I’m so glad you two could make the trip across the Atlantic to celebrate our wedding with us, and that we had the chance to create these gorgeous memories for you! I cannot wait to see you marry Paul next year!
Love, love, love, love, LOVE!
Katie (and the KDP & Team!)
