ART, HISTORY, MUSEUMS – Oh My!
First, to see the best sites of Paris and record the memories that will last a lifetime, Riana recommends a most WONDERFUL photographer for you and your Love! Ivan Franchet (www.ivanfranchet.fr) and his wonderful wife, Emmanuelle, knew of all the most picturesque spots of Paris. She drove – he shot – and we smiled – a lot! The result – MAGIC!
My August afternoon in Paris consisted of the Basilique Sacre Coeur, Jardin des Tuileries – Le Louvre, Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris, Le Pont des Arts (St Germain des Pres), Place de la Concorde, and the Trocadero overlooking the Tour Eiffel. I had chosen Ivan online, and we developed a friendship through emails before we met. I fell in love with his photography, and he offered a photo package that was extremely reasonable. He gave us the full CD of pics, and created a lovely keepsake book of my photo memories. I could not have possibly gotten these pictures for myself, or seen as many sites – as I did not know Paris well, did not have a car, and did not know the truly picturesque places to go. Ivan practiced his English, and I my French, and Emmanuelle was the perfect translator!
Whirling around the city of Paris, — this made my trip so magical! THANK YOU Ivan, and Emmanuelle, for truly letting me live and feel the true spirit of Paris – as I glance at my book of photo memories – created by your heart, love, and knowledge of the world of Paris and photography!
