Remember when I said Inna, our wedding photographer, was magic? I’d like to upgrade that to be something along the lines of “Super-Talented Genius Fairy Princess.” Not only did she deliver preview photos the day after our engagement shoot, she had our online gallery up within a week, and mailed all of our high-res photos along with a few free prints this past Friday. I got them in the mail Saturday, and all my big plans for spending the day doing nothing but writing went out the window. I sent a few to Jamal (he landed safely in India late Saturday afternoon, and emailed me a photo of the Ladurée inside Charles de Gaulle airport, haha) but this is the first look!
Since we got engaged in Paris in the Musée Rodin gardens, it was important to us to include both our love of art and Paris into the shoot. The Art Museum and Parc, two of our favorite places in the entire city, felt like the obvious choices when it came to location ideas. I wanted something timeless and not trendy; we have precisely one photo of the two of us that we didn’t take ourselves, with one of our arms outstretched, holding the camera. We’re going to use a photo from this shoot for our Save the Dates, but we also wanted to have a nice selection of photos of us, at this moment in our lives, just for posterity. I am so in love with what Inna was able to capture that afternoon.
Herewith, a small sampling of our engagement photos. Damn, Jamal is a hottie. (I’ve watermarked them with ‘like / want / need’ in case they end up elsewhere, but obviously all credit/copyright goes to Peach Plum Pear Photography.)
Thank you so much again, Inna! And a big thank you to my friend Maurin for lending me that beautiful black dress.
