Dreamy Louvre Anniversary Session | Paris, France | Photographed by Houston Wedding Photographer Alicia Yarrish Photography

Their Love Story

She grew up a dancer, has a pilates studio, and loves all things fashion. He is an extremely passionate teach and loves history. Together, Paris was the perfect place to say ‘Cheers’ to their marriage and celebrate with a Paris Anniversary Experience!

They celebrated their third wedding anniversary with me in Paris and I couldn’t feel more honored to be a part of their 28 day Europe trip! They went to some of the most romantic cities in the world including London, Paris, Berlin, Prague, Florence, Barcelona, and more!

But how they celebrated their adventure was my personal favorite. Their goal was to live like locals in each and every city in order to truly experience the cultures they were visiting. And with a few days in each city, that’s not an easy task. However, I believe they achieved it!

With that said, I have to rewind and tell you in an early on email to me Shelby mentioned that this was the most touristy thing she’d convinced Erik to participate in on their trip. I couldn’t help but laugh a little because ‘tourist’ is the exact opposite of what I’m all about for my couples. Deep down I knew their Louvre anniversary session would be far from tourist!

I adore capturing couples falling in love with the city. The pure joy on their faces being surrounded by such beauty. Additionally, giving couples suggestions on how to tour the city like locals, not tourists is near to my heart.

Erik & Shelby in Paris, France

Now, fast forward to their Louvre anniversary session. We carefully planned locations that were perfect for Erik and Shelby specifically- the Louvre and Eiffel Tower. The spots that were iconic, but also rich in architecture, history, and beauty.

Session day came and it could not have been a less touristy experience for these two. We were rained on a decent amount, which is fine because Paris is beautiful in the rain. The city actually felt more authentic in the rain. It kept the tourists away and we had the Louvre nearly to ourselves.

Hours later, a few unexpected stops, two beautiful locations, and a whole lot of laughs and exchanged stories later Shelby and Erik not only have beautiful photographs but memories I know we will all be smiling on years from now.

Erik and Shelby, happy third anniversary! Thank you for the honor of celebrating with you!

    what an incredible opportunity! I am dreaming of photographing people in different countries! How did you manage to be by yourself?? Those locations seem to always be busy with tourists!! I am in love with your series about europe!

    There are certainly tricks to getting Paris locations to yourself 😉 Lots and lots of scouting and knowing when to shoot. I went to the city A LOT before I started photographing clients there. I wanted to get to know the city intimately before professionally shooting there.

    What a beautiful Paris anniversary session! I love how classy this is. You must have gotten up for sunrise or cloned out a lot of people to have the space to yourself! Beautiful job.

    My not so secret, secret is that I only photograph at sunrise in Paris 😉 The light is incredible and there’s no one around at 0530! However, we got rained out for this session and a lot of these photos were taken in the afternoon! I think the rain kept some tourists away luckily. Thanks so much for your kind words, Kara!
