If there was ever a place to represent romance, Paris would be it. Audrey & Steve planned their pre-honeymoon trip to Europe, and decided to keep the sweet memories alive forever by asking Paul Kong of Gallerie CK to photograph their engagement session in Paris. Paul Kong beautifully crafted timeless images of the couple’s engagement and travels through Paris, and you can see all the sweet romance unfold below.
A special trip to Europe
Audrey & Steve are both doctors, and it was quite difficult for both of them to get such a long leave to travel together. This was their first time visiting Europe, and Paris was their first stop. They wanted to capture all the happy moments in this sweet trip, which also happened to be their pre-honeymoon trip.
Inspiration behind the session
Paul Kong: Since this was Audrey & Steve’s first time in Europe, we became their tour guide and had a really fun time traveling around and sight seeing during the photo session. We wanted to create a special album for this couple with both formal bridal shoot and casual lifestyle shoot, so we included a casual session in Pont des Arts and The Lourve.
Thoughts from the photographer
Paul Kong: Big thank you to Steve & Audrey for just being most gorgeous people inside and out! Summer in Paris is always filled with light and so much warmth. We woke up at 3.30am for styling to catch the sun rise around 6am. There are just so many wonderful places to shoot. Although I’ve already been to Paris a few times, there are still so many new places and things to explore and discover.
