In general, It was an excellent experience we had in Paris. The day we booked for photo shooting was really bad weather, when we arrived at the spot we were so disappointed, where the whole Effiel tower was covered by fog. But our photographer Alain is so kind and thoughtful, he checked our schedule in Paris and manage to reschedule the shooting on another day. Alain is an experienced and creative photographer who captured so many wonderful moment for us within one hour. The whole shooting was a pleasant moment, no stress, just be yourself and follow Alain's instruction and your heart.
