Before Hollywood ever existed, Paris was the city of art, of progressive thinkers, of rooooomance. Well, not much has changed, and Paris still seems to exude that certain je ne sais quoi that draws in creatives and lovers, alike. Perhaps there’s something in the air which encourages nostalgia and pushes one to perform bold acts of love…
Encouraged by the idea of a grand romantic gesture, Samuel set out on his mission. At sunrise, he pushed an antique piano through the streets of Paris. The goal? Surprise his fiancée, Maya, by singing his vows during their ceremony later that morning. Their photographer, Priscila Valentina Photography, was there to capture all the magic and shares: As Sam pushed the piano up to the Eiffel Tower, the Parisians stopped with questionable eyes, but full smiles, something was kindling, a familiar spirit of romance was in pursuit.
What are you waiting for? The streets of Paris are calling!
Transporting the Piano…on Foot
Can you imagine peeking out your window to find him pushing a piano up the hill?
Samuel shares: I felt like my heart was going to pound straight through my chest, and when she saw the piano laying in front of the Eiffel Tower she was totally shocked!
The Sweetest Surprise
Enter in the adorable Maya! How darling is her antique-looking lace dress from Saldana Vintage?
Her reaction is PRICELESS!!
Like something out of a painting…
What a location!!
If ever there was time to pop the bubbly!
Priscila shares: After the exchange of vows, Maya + Samuel had something truly magical happen. We were packing up to head to our next location when all of a sudden, light snow began falling and I shouted to them: “Come back!!” The idea hit me of putting them on top of the piano to capture a “lost in Paris” moment on film.
Doesn’t this look like something out of an old film? How sweet is this?!
The two wandered around the city together and walked across many of Paris’ iconic bridges.
