Travel Diary : Paris and Annecy France.

A beautiful escape to France in the Spring. This post features Paris and the quiet alpine village of Annecy, France. A perfect European getaway Featured on Suitcase Magazine.

paris-wedding-photographer.jpgParis is magical. It can be pouring with rain and the city is still a dream. Actually, there is nothing more liberating then standing on a terrace looking out over the rooftops in an early evening storm. This was my second time visiting and I can’t wait to return again.montmarte-france.jpgparis-wedding-photographer.jpgThere is a reason that café chairs sit side by side on the pavement – it’s the perfect way to sit and watch the world drift by. I adore old Paris with it’s beautiful neighborhoods full of tiny chimneys and crooked staircases. I love how the exteriors are painted in perfectly muted tones, the colors faded and worn with time. Montmartre is my favorite in the spring.

montmartre-paris.jpgWe wandered aimlessly for hours every day during our stay. Right when you think that you’ve seen it all, you stumble upon a new alley that opens to a square of cafes and shops.Hope_Helmuth_Photography-13.jpgAnnecy is a quiet little alpine village at the entrance of the French Alps. We arrived in the off season right before the summer madness. The wandering with a warm cappuccino made the town all the more magical. This place was so cozy, warm and inviting. We had a lot of rain on our trip but we didn’t mind! It almost made things more peaceful. In Annecy we really took a step back to relax and reflect.

Hope_Helmuth_Photography-5.jpgWe had such a wonderful time exploring the eateries and bars. We even made a few friends along the way. The locals where so kind and eager to strike up conversation. We wished we could stay much longer!annecy-france-photos.jpgMy favorite memory from this trip was a foggy afternoon eating delicious fondue and drinking white wine at a waterfront cafe. Annecy is right out of a fairy tale novel. The perfect place to escape and get lost. In the best way possible! I would love to capture a wedding here. It is definitely on my bucket list!  Looking for a France destination wedding photographer?  Our travel fees are all included. annecy-france-photography.jpg
