Romantic winter elopement – Paris photographer

Audrey and Gregory flew all the way from Columbus, Ohio to France for their winter Paris Elopement. It was truly one of the most wonderful experiences.

Audrey and Greg’s love story

Gregory and I grew up in the same town, went to the same high school. But we were not brought together as friends until our first year of college. In fact, it wasn’t until a couple of years after we met that we realized it was more than friendship on our minds. It didn’t take long until we were inseparable, and life together became second nature. Then, 6 homes, several roommates, a handful of pets, a 3 or 4 new jobs later, Greg proposed. I was surprised, but also knew it had to be soon because we both knew we were ready for the next step.

When we began planning a traditional wedding we questioned whether or not it made sense for us. And, what if, we eloped instead. This dream quickly came to fruition, to everyone’s surprise, and was the most incredible decision we have ever made together.

Audrey kindly shared with us

Their elopement journey in Paris winter

They contacted us and we quickly arranged all the details with them. The weather in Paris in autumn or winter can sometimes be unpredictable, especially for your elopement or wedding. However, Paris does always surprise us!

On Audrey & Greg’s special day, there was so much fog that it covered the Eiffel tower. We were afraid at first when looking at it. Nevertheless, the photos turned out just MAGICAL. In fact, the Eiffel hidden behind the fog really made it more special, don’t you think so?

The ceremony was held with the Iron Lady in the background and with Laura as their Paris officiant. We then moved to the Louvre for some timeless captures.

What is an elopement?

(For those who don’t know)

An elopement is a very intimate wedding focused on who you are as a couple. It can be celebrated in any place, as long as it has significance for both of you. The couple could avoid all the hassles from tough decisions regarding a traditional wedding. For instance, finalizing the invitation list, picking a venue that would satisfy everyone. These ‘to-do lists’ might leave you feeling weary. And it unintentionally might make the wedding become a stressful task. Especially, when it is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life).

That is why there is an option for experiences that are a bit more adventurous: having a Paris Elopement.

Love is ALL you need! It could be with or without the presence of your family and your closest friends. Elopement is essentially about freedom, showing your styles, and being truly yourself.

So what are the perks of it?

  • You won’t need to please anyone except yourselves.
  • There won’t be an unnecessarily high budget for a traditional wedding (you can spend that on your honeymoon instead!).
  • You deserve to do whatever your hearts desire!
