A Sweet Engagement in Paris, France

I have a serious weakness when it comes to two things. One being love, and two being Paris. So when you combine my two favorite things in the whole wide world, I turn into a big ball of happiness. That happiness turns into sheer joy when we get see it all come to life through images as beautiful as by Marjorie Prvl Photography. It’s image after image of pure gorgeous, and it’s all waiting for you here.

From Marjorie Prvl PhotographyMy name is Marjorie Preval and I’m a photographer based in Paris, France and New York. I recently had the pleasure to shoot an engagement session for a fellow wedding photographer, CJ and her french fiancé Adrien in Paris this past December. She expressed desire for a simpler shoot so I took them to some of my favorite locations in my arrondissement. Before I met them I was directed to a site they have up for upcoming wedding and I was inspired by their story. On said site there was a photo taken the night they met and I loved it so much that it inspired the general feel of the shoot, sweet and full of love. We were blessed with some of the most amazing weather Paris could give us mid-December and spent a morning walking from arrondissement to arrondissment taking Paris in while taking photos. I’m lucky that I get to photograph people in love in Paris, where every corner is postcard worthy.

From the Bride-to-be…I never in a million years thought I would meet the one in New York City, but one day I did meet my prince and he just so happened to be from France. That’s right, a handsome french man! The time came when he wanted to bring me to France for the first time to meet all of his extended family, and thankfully he planned for us to stay in Paris for a week. Even though we were going in December and I knew it would be freezing, I desperately wanted to have a romantic French photo session in Paris to remember my first time in Paris and my first trip to France. Once I saw Marjorie’s website I knew she was the one we should work with abroad, and we had such a fun afternoon hopping all around Paris exploring new places and spaces throughout the session. Marjorie was a pleasure to work with, and we are so excited to have our session in France to look back on all our fun memories traveling abroad together for the first time.

Parisian Industrial Loft Wedding Inspiration

If I could infuse any inspiration into my imaginary “re-do” wedding – it would most certainly be this stuning shoot. A modern take on Parisian glamour with gold and twinkling lights everywhere you look. Of course I’d have the amazing Greg Finck capture the whole shebang, and with any luck, my wedding gallery would look exactly like this.


From From Art Director La Fiancée du Panda… We had been thinking for quite some time about doing a wedding inspiration photoshoot which would be really different, very modern, and could inspire brides and grooms in search for a new form of urban romanticism. It finally all came up together in a matter of weeks when we envisioned a mix of black and white geometric forms with an arty feeling, wild flowers, and a touch of gold to add in some glamour. We worked a lot of inspirations and ideas with Les Cocottes Events design, and the result came out beautifully.

Atelier 154, in the heart of Paris, was the perfect setting for this. Stephane, a specialist in vintage industrial design, has set his showroom there in a XIXth century fabric in the 11th district of Paris, near République.

The team was absolutely perfect. Not only are they incredibly talented people, but they are also fun and great to work with.

Casual Paris Engagement Session

In my book, there’s nothing better than an engagement sesh in the City of Lights. But add Katie Donnelly into the mix, and you better believe I’m smitten as can be. Refill that coffee and have a look for yourself in the full gallery right here!

From Katie Donnelly… The first time I met K & B over a coffee in the Marais in Paris, I was instantly surrounded by their friendliness and love. K has the beautiful all American look with her stunning and enchanting smile while B has easy jokes, and an equally lovely smile. Needless to say, we clicked and I was BEYOND excited to be their engagement photographer.

2 weeks later on the morning of the engagement session we woke up to the perfect Parisian day after weeks of only rain. We had decided earlier that we weren’t going to do the “classic” Paris engagement session with the landmarks but instead, have the city as the backdrop and the “Parisian” feel. In the end, the session was a total success and every time I look at their photos I can still feel the love and happiness that surrounds them.
