Photographer Spotlight: Scander Aidoudi

As some of you may know I ventured to Paris, France, on a solo vacation, mixed with a little business for A Wanderlust Home.  

While in Paris I created blog posts, highlighting my trip, "Tamiko Goes to Paris | Vol. 1 - Vol. 6", to share my experiences on Where, When & Who.  I shared a teaser in Volume 3, of my professional photoshoot with photographer, Scander aka Obaka-San, who I hired through Kiss Me In Paris.  They are a Parisian Photography company with photographers who are fluent in English.  I definitely needed this as my French is... I'll leave it at "Parlez vous Français?" The answer is "No!" LOL!  But that will change soon! 

To plan the photoshoot I was asked to select my top two locations. I picked The Eiffel Tower (but, of course!), and Montmartre.  Two very different places aesthetically, but both stunningly beautiful.  After all, it is Paris.  What isn't beautiful! 

We had two wardrobe changes for each location to blend in with the gorgeous backdrops.  Scander captured each location beautifully and naturally.  The direction and focus to get these beautiful images was no easy task. A very chilly and rainy day in Paris didn't stop us to achieve what you will see below.

Scander is a self-taught photographer who's well traveled, globally.  He's honed his skills while living in Japan for a year, and brought back the knowledge to Paris, developing his own style.

And, that's a wrap!  It was the perfect ending to a beautiful photoshoot with the rain, people, location, and just being in the moment; centered with gratitude.
