Chanel & Médérich

Our first photo session together couldn’t have felt more fun or natural. Médé carries himself quite seriously but is truly a goofball who constantly makes me laugh. The photos were able to show us how we love each other from an outside perspective and it ultimately brought us closer together, if that’s even possible!

When I headed home from that session, back on the bus and travelling the same scenic route north through Paris just this time with many more people out and about, I kinda felt like I had unlocked another level of travelling. Not just getting to shoot this swell amazing couple and hang out with them, but to experiences cities at dawn. When the city hasn’t woken up and few people are out. Whenever I’m travelling I don’t care much about the tourist attractions. I don’t care to see the monuments that other people see, I’d rather walk the streets, find odd alleyways and strange bars, encounter the beautiful in the everyday, the mundane, the things you can see all around. And when I booked in this session with Chanel & Médérich they asked quietly if I had thought about shooting in front of the Eiffel Tower, or Notre Dame, at which point I said a blank no (to their relief!). Because for me the pulse of Paris, nor any city, will never be the tourist destinations, but the residential areas, the fave little bars, or the sleepy markets. But, on that bus ride through Paris, before dawn when everything was still dusky, the bus took us over the Seine, past Notre Dame. And in it’s glory all by itself, all alone with no tourists to be seen, it truly was amazing. So from now on, whenever I travel, I’ll see the sights at sunrise from a bus. Done and done!
