When Abbie Clinton of Abbie Mae Photography had the opportunity to travel to Paris alone, she knew one of the first things she wanted to do was create a styled wedding shoot.
“I have always loved the Parisian culture and have wanted to indulge in it ever since I was little,” she said. “I have visited France twice before this year and I had always dreamed of doing a shoot while I was there since I was always traveling with family.”
Even before it came time for her trip, Abbie began organizing everything to ensure the best possible shoot.
“I had local Dallas vendors and international vendors from Paris involved which created a gorgeous shoot on a gorgeous weekend evening in Paris,” she said. “I had created a mood board with classic and pastel colors with the idea of Parisian culture behind it. I wanted to do everything I could to create a vision of Paris, from a tourist’s and local side of view.”
Alongside the shoot’s model, Abbie roamed the streets of Paris — which was experiencing an extremely nice day weather-wise. According to her, the whole day was “very surreal.”
“The European elegance, which is all very natural and whimsical at the same time, was what I wanted these images to portray. I wanted to show the city of Love from a woman’s perspective and show how gorgeous [the model] can look even just by herself,” Abbie said. “I think that having a love for yourself is so important and these images really showed her natural beauty in the city she loves.”
