Mary & Edward. A real life love story in Paris.
With a very happy ending.
Mary & Edward are from Hong Kong. They've been together since high school.
Whilst they're not (were not) engaged Mary asked if I could do an engagement style shoot around Paris. She was incredibly enthusiastic and arrived extremely well prepared. She brought over dresses, a suit for Edward, even their first photo together so we could re-create a new version in front of the Eiffel Tower.
However, Edward was also equally prepared. He'd brought over a beautiful diamond engagement ring that Mary knew nothing about. During the shoot he whispered to me that he was going to propose to Mary in front of the Eiffel Tower and asked if I could capture the proposal.
The second from last photo in this post is the proposal as it was happening. I just love the look of surprise and happiness on Mary's face. Of course she said 'yes'.
Congratulations to a truly wonderful couple!
