Today I am thrilled to share a gorgeous Destination Engagement shoot in Paris, a city famed for love, lights and haute couture.
The couple are Tom and Jess and they chose this stunning location to capture some very special pre Wedding memories.
Images were captured by Nick Rutter Photography.

I hand over to Nick to tell you about this fabulous destination engagement shoot…
“Tom and Jess love to travel and when they first met me, we discussed some initial ideas for where they may like to have their engagement shoot.”
“Italy or Paris were high on their list, but they settled in the end on Paris as they have never been there before.”
“And why not the most romantic city in the world for a destination engagement shoot?!”
“As many people know I don’t shoot the same location twice for an engagement shoot so I am at my most creative, it’s new and exciting and it’s unique to the couple.
“A destination Engagement Shoot such as this is amazing.”
“Not only does it allow a great amount of time to shoot in an amazing location, but it also means myself and a couple get to spend lots more time together to develop and even better rapport which means the world to me.”
“We decided to get our bearings on the first day and do a recky of the main sights we wanted to visit and shoot, knowing where to go and also deciding on the most creative places.”
“The instant problem I had was that I had no idea how busy it would be in Paris, even out of season.”
“Paris is constantly busy and thus VERY tough to achieve the shots you think you’d like to achieve.”
“It also become very obvious from our recky the day before the shoot that even though we had a brilliant metro system to use to get to A and B, it took a long time to get around and so we wouldn’t be able to visit everywhere.”
“However, we achieved a lot and visited the Eiffel tower during the day and night, Notre Dame where the famous bridge is with all the love locks, the gardens near by, Parc Monceau and the Arc De Triomphe.”
The Couple briefly tell us their story…
“We met when we were 17, nearly 9 years ago. Childhood Sweethearts.”
“We were both at college and met though a group of friends and quickly fell for each other.”
“Since we met we love travelling the world and knew our engagement shoot couldn’t be any different, and where better than the most romantic city in the world?!”
“It’s also somewhere we had never been and really wanted to go.”
“Paris certainly lived up to expectations and we had beautiful weather for October.”
“We plan to incorporate our travels into our wedding. With pictures and tables names from our favourite places as well as a few extra little surprises.”
Thank you so much to Nick for sharing this gorgeous destination engagement shoot with the couples passion, love and contentment radiating from the images.
They do say the way to a mans heart is through his stomach so what better place to capture some memories.
Thank you so much to Nick for sharing this wonderful destination engagement shoot.
Amazing images captured so beautifully in the city of romance…
