Lovelocks on the Pont des Arts
My favorite bridge in Paris is definitely the Pont des Arts, a beautiful wooden pedestrian bridge. Every time I walk on the Pont des Arts I have to stop and take a few moments to enjoy the view, even if I’m in a hurry. The bridge connects Le Louvre to L’Insitut de France, so there’s breathtaking architecture on both banks. Then there’s the Seine where you have a picturesque view of the Ile de la Cité, Notre Dame and the Pont Neuf on one side and the Eiffel Tower on the other. It’s the perfect bridge for a quiet and utterly romantic stroll with the one you love as well as a stunning location for an Engagement, Proposal, Day After or Honeymoon Photo Session. The Lovelock trend makes the Pont des Arts even more enchanting. Couples from around the world are attaching padlocks engraved with their names to the pont as a representation their love. J’adore!
This photograph of the Pont des Arts with L’Institut de France in the background is from a Love Shoot I did on a snowy day last winter. You can see more from this photo shoot here.
So, if you and your amour are ever in Paris be sure to take a promenade romantique on the Pont des Arts. And don’t forget your Lovelock!
