This trip to France was such a great time of growth for me personally, as a photographer, and as an artist. Going to new places and experiencing new things fills me up and pushes me to new heights. As Thomas Merton said, “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” Become inspired by this Luxury France Elopement.
I took a big step forward as a photographer and as an artist during my time in France. Instantly, I fell in love with the light, the buildings, the people, the culture, the architecture, and the color palate. The connection I made with all of it was so profound. It pushed me to a new place within myself that helped me better understand what type of art I wanted to create, and it propelled me forward down the path of really finding my unique artistic voice. France transformed me as an artist. Some of these photos from this luxury France elopement were what I studied for hours to understand what I was drawn to, what evoked emotion from me. And how I wanted to be transformed as an artist.
My encouragement to my fellow photographers is to keep growing as an artist. Keep refining and pushing yourself to find that place of clarity and fulfillment in your art. Operating in that space is when you will most enjoy what you do and also when you will be at your best. The best thing we can do as artists is to push ourselves. Try new things, be diverse. Be a trend setter, not follower.
This elopement shoot was such a dream! Impeccably styled, sophisticated, seductive, and full of elegant beauty, it was so fun and so fulfilling to capture these images on film. I can’t wait until my next trip to France where I can take in all that this beautiful country has to offer and create more amazing art! France changed my photography.
