Happy Tuesday, friends! We’re so excited to finally be able to share Megan and Joe’s romantic Paris engagement session with you!

(We took a few days off after the proposal to adventure through some of France and Germany’s most famous storybook towns. So if you’re planning a trip to Europe any time soon — or you just wanna see the place that inspired Belle’s hometown in Beauty in the Beast — definitely check it out!)

Since Megan didn’t know that Joe was going to surprise her by proposing in Paris, she got a second surprise that morning: she needed outfits for their engagement session the next day. What’s a girl to do? Not to worry! Because Joe had a plan… and so did we. They’d go shopping. On Champs-Élysées. The Fifth Avenue of Paris. WHAT. A. STUD. Joe, the single women of the Internet are involved in an active manhunt for your long-lost twin. So, we texted Megan a copy of our Engagement Session Style Guide, and between lunch and their pre-planned tour of the Louvre, which was LESS THAN ONE HOUR in total time, she found two outfits that are, in a word (or hashtag), #stylegoals.

The morning after the proposal, we set out to see if we could complete our ambitious Paris checklist. Major monuments. Check! Cute side streets. Check! Picnics, carousels and coffee in a cafe. Check, check, check! ROOFTOP GARDEN. Total bonus. It even sprinkled just enough that we got to use the cutest clear plastic umbrellas that Megan and Joe bought from a local shop.

It was a dream come true for us… because of you

Megan, when Joe emailed us and said he wanted to give you the proposal of your dreams, we just melted right then and there. It was a dream come true for us, too. Not just because Joe proposed. Not just because it was Paris. Or because it was a dream job on paper. It was a dream come true for us… because of you. Your sweet smiles and warm hearts. Your coolness under pressure (Joe!) and kindness in everyday life. That Joe was willing to talk back-and-forth in a caricature French cartoon accent with Jordan all day. And, more seriously, the way we saw how much you loved each other when the cameras were up; but, most importantly, how much more even when they were down. We identify with that.
We saw so much of ourselves in it. That whether you were under the Eiffel Tower or just under the stars, Megan would’ve reacted the same way. With the most predictable happiness in the world. Because you know a secret that most in-love couples know too: the magic isn’t in the moment when he drops to one knee or when she says, “I do.” It’s every little thing up until then, and every little thing that’ll happen after that. It’s the small things that nobody else sees, or ever will. It’s the 99.9% of your life that’s just you two. Him and you. That’s what makes the moment so special. It’s a manifestation of everything you’ve been, everything you are and everything you want to be… together.

So, from the bottom of our heart, thank you for giving us the pleasure of bearing witness to that; and the privilege of documenting it for you, your family and friends, and generations to come. Because even though the City of Light has seen a lot of love. It’s never seen one quite like yours — and it never will again. That is, of course, unless we make this a regular thing. We love you both to Paris and back, and we hope you love these pictures as much as we loved taking them. We are so excited for your hometown wedding next summer! Until then, aurevoir.
