Paris, I Love You – Part 1

There is no doubt in my mind that I will be returning to Paris as soon as I can. We were fortunate to stay on the beautiful Île Saint-Louis in the 4th arrondissement, a small island near Notre Dame which is centrally located to tons of neighborhoods, sights, and shops including Le Marais, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Musée d’Orsay, & the Pont des Arts.

The city glows with life, from the towering buildings and monuments, to the chic and effortless urbanites, to the quaint cafés that line the streets and pop up on almost every corner, to the incredible food and “pâtisserie” treats.

Being inspired by the people, I decided to photograph a bit of street style: some for their fashion choices, others that capture the feeling of being in Paris. Above all, these people possess that “je ne sais quoi” that is so undeniably characteristic of the Parisian lifestyle.
