Amber and her husband got married in 2009. Amber shares her experience of their pre-wedding shoot in one of the most romantic cities in the world.
A perfect opportunity to get to know the Wedding Photographer
We love old fashioned romance and glamour, so we chose to have our pre-wedding shoot in Paris. The shoot was the perfect opportunity to warm up with the photographer Aziz and for him to get to know us as a couple before the wedding. It was also a fun way to have a collection of stunning individual pictures which Aziz incorporated into a guest signing book for the wedding reception.
Relaxed modern and classic glamour
We liked the idea of a relaxed modern take on classic glamour. I wanted to look stylish and be myself, so I chose a long black evening dress from Monsoon and Gucci kitten heels. My scarf was from a vintage boutique in London. My husband wore a Hugo Boss black tux and shoes from Kurt Geiger. I always remember the morning I arrived in Paris, on the day of the shoot, the morning coffee and croissants, and all the excitement and anticipation that day.
Parisians enquired if we were Bollywood stars
Aziz beautifully captured our love and affection with his camera- and photographed us at different places- at the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Jardin du Luxembourg. What we had not anticipated was the attention we’d get from local Parisians- they came up to us and asked if we were famous Bollywood stars!
My favorite shots
Two of my favourite shots are where I am looking back and holding my husband’s hand, with a beautiful old wall behind us. The other is of us on the Paris metro, on the escalator.
