I had a feeling Paris was the city for me before I ever travelled there. My intuition happened to be spot on because I fell in love immediately when I visited last summer.
Walking through Paris felt like walking in to a painting, every inch of the city was immaculate. The roads were paved with cobblestone. The streets signs were beautifully engraved brass plates mounted to the sides of buildings. Bridges overlooking the Seine were creamy white with gold details, and apartments had wrought iron balconies that overflowed with flowers. Not to mention the remarkable architecture. Paris is home to the Eiffel tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Sacré-Cœur.
The city really is a work of art.
And just a short distance away was the Palace of Versailles. A key event to our Europe visit, and one of our most memorable days. Patrick and I wandered through the gardens for hours, venturing away from the crowds. We spent nearly 8 hours at Versailles and there was still more to see. The palace was grand, it is hard to imagine its entirety. It was brimming with history as the paintings, architecture and decor date back to the 17th century.
It is a dream of mine to return and photograph a fashion campaign here. Even if it was simply for a personal project, it would be wonderful to combine my two loves, Paris and fashion photography.
