When someone says Paris, they think of the Eiffel Tower. During our trip, we knew we were going to make a stop at the Eiffel Tower to take our own family photos there. When we were walking up to the spot that we were going to shoot, I was telling Kevin how I wished we could shoot an Eiffel Tower proposal. If you guys know us, we love to go up to random strangers at beautiful locations and ask them if we could take a few pictures of them. So when we saw James taking pictures, we knew we had to ask them to be our couple at the Eiffel Tower!
What started out as a random shoot with a random couple, ended up being a surprise of a lifetime! While walking to our location, James pulled Kevin to the side and told him that he had a ring in his pocket. And when Kevin told me, I was over the moon happy. I was actually getting to shoot an Eiffel Tower proposal; something that I just put out into the universe 15 minutes earlier.
We started the mini session by taking portraits of both Ashley and James. These two were naturals in front of the camera. Ashley wore a beautiful Selkie dress that matched James’ all black outfit. Then James had Ashley pose facing the other way while he got down on one knee. As he was proposing, everyone watched the happy couple. It was so special because once the ring was on Ashley’s finger, they got tons of claps and cheers!
Once everything was all said and done, Ashley asked James if he actually hired us. This was just very serendipitous and we both happened to be at the same place at the right time!
