You can’t go to Paris without snapping photos of the Eiffel Tower, period. There are several places to do this depending on the view and angle you want. This trip for a little photoshoot we went to the Trocadero which is a big open space across the river from the Eiffel Tower. You may remember my photos here from the fall where we were at Bir Hakeim. Such a different look and feel, right? And if you’re looking for those stairs that people often shoot on with the Eiffel Tower in the background? That’s at the Trocadero also, but instead of going down to the right, you go to the left. Will have to do that on my next visit.

If you ever wondered what it’s like to be a crazy blogger on a trip like this, we got up at 5:30am, to get to the Trocadero by 6:30 to meet our photographer. This place was already filling up with photographers and their clients. It’s the best time to shoot, really any major tourist spot is best to shoot this early at, and it was fun to see everyone in their wedding dress, gowns, even a ballerina was there.

While waiting for Lauren to finish up snapping her photos, I noticed a man I thought I recognized.  As he walked closer, I realized it was Federico who I shot with on my last visit. I follow him on Instagram obviously (he’s hands down one of my favorite Instagram accounts to follow) and know he’s here almost every morning for a shoot. I ran over to him and gave him a big hug (should’ve done the more culturally appropriate kiss on each cheek, but oh well), congratulated him on his new baby that his wife had 4 days prior.  

Quickly I realized this world is incredibly small within seconds of seeing him. His client was a couple from the states who were there celebrating their anniversary. It turned out the woman was a blog follower. The world is beyond tiny which is always a nice reminder to be kind if you ask me. That moment made me so thankful to be able to do what I do and travel the world. I get to meet these incredible photographers, see amazing sights and get to stay in touch with everyone all through social media.

But let’s chat about this look real quick. Lately, I’m trying to expand my travel uniform from jeans and tees to more dresses. Although this is paired with heels today, I think it’s going to be perfect with Adidas or block heel sandal. It was super comfortable and was easy enough to dress up. This striped WAYF dress is also under $100 which is great if you ask me! Would even be cute in the cooler months with a white or grey turtle neck underneath it.

    Beautiful photos! Your dress is great- love the red on you and the vertical stripes are lovely. I don’t follow that Paris photographer’s account, but I’ve definitely spent some time scrolling in the past. The images he makes are amazing!
