WHAT I LEARNED ON THE WAY TO PARIS…
I left for Paris on Sunday.. on my way I learned three things… I know this may be random… but it’s what I learned…
1)… Wearing all white to a wedding doesn’t have to be a faux pas… I sat next to a lovely lady from Amsterdam who was recently married.. (I only wish I would have grabbed a couple of her pics)… she had the most beautiful Ibiza wedding. She asked all of her 50 guests to wear all white… and it gave the whole event not only an incredibly beautiful aesthetic but also such a sense of softness, love, and tenderness… it is hard to explain … but if you are looking to do something different… think about it. I was especially interested in seeing her pictures because I will be flying back across the Atlantic in May to photograph my own Ibiza wedding…
2)… Pictures truly are memory keepers.. obviously I believe this and knew this… but it wasn’t until I experience it first hand (yet again) that I remember how amazing the feeling can be. I was in a taxi heading to my hotel in Paris when we drove through a plaza… I instantly remembered it… not only did I remember it.. I remembered the EXACT photo I had taken of this plaza 12 years ago… and not only did I remember the photo… but I remembered what I thinking, what I was doing.. and where I was in life (ironically enough photography was the farthest thing from a career for me… funny what 12 years can do)… I wish I had the photograph to show you.
3)… Rescue Remedy Sleep, Calms Forte, A Glass of Wine, and Airborne Sleep .DOES NOT equal sleeping on the plane
So, that was my trip there… day 1… 4 of us girls converge upon Paris from four different flights all leaving LAX and Arriving Charles De Galle… don’t ask why we didn;t fly together… we haven’t quite figured that out yet.
After trying to sleep off the jetlag.. it was off to Muse D’Orsay… (to see my favortie Toulous Latrec)… and dinner with a French friend…
Day 2.. TODAY… we awoke had a lovely lunch … checked out Pere Lachaise.. where I saw Oscar Wilde’s tomb… this cemetary was amazing and Oscar is ALWAYS inspiring. And then… I was soo happy to meet up with my dear dear dear Parisian friend Diana… (you look amazing… and always make my day… so happy to have had the time with you my sweet).
AND TONIGHT… the BIG EVENT… watching the Sparkling Eiffel Tower at exactly midnight as my amazing, inspiring and beautiful friend Britainy turned 30.. (I truly feel honored to be a part of your celebration and to be a part of your life)
SO… One more day in Paris… till its off to London… tomorrow’s agenda a portrait shoot of an opera singer at the Bastille Opera house… then off to the George V to cheers Brits official birthday.
Here are a few pics… enjoy… drop me a note…
May you all have adventures and find a few friends along the way… it sure does make the world small.
Oh and along the way… TONS of croissants, pain au chocolates, and cappuccinos!!
