“I just turned 30. I decided to celebrate in style. The recipe to a great night: my best friends, glitter, high heels, candles,
champagne, a delicious cake, good music, a chic hotel suite, and some Polaroids to capture the craziest photos”
When it came to Audrey’s 30th birthday party, she decided to mark it in style. A quintessential Parisian woman, and a talented photographer too, she used her creativity to produce this perfect little celebration. She commissioned some beautiful hand calligraphy for invites, and little party signs – ‘Time to Shine’ & ‘Joyeaux Anniversaire’, hired a suite at a beautiful hotel, a friend made a gorgeous cake, decorated the suite with antiques and beautiful flowers with the help of some friends then invited a bunch of her best friends to drink champagne. We spent the afternoon shooting on the streets of Paris for Audrey to have photographs that captured this personal milestone, then her cocktail reception in the suite with a bunch of friends before going on to a chic Parisian restaurant for a fine meal and dancing.
I think it’s a magical idea for a hen party, but I also love the idea of commissioning portraits of yourself or yourself and a loved one on the romantic streets of Paris, to celebrate a special occasion or just to treasure as an experience. More coming up later this week from the shoot…
