“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us” – Anonymous

Travelling will always be part of who I am as a person and also part of my photography brand. The people I meet, the stories we exchange, the food and drinks ; The cultural experience, seeing things in a different perspective, all this and more helps me grow and develop as a person and as a photographer.

X-PLR is a play on the word EXPLORE, along with the fact that I use the Fujifilm X-Series cameras (mainly the X100s – which I review here) to document my travels.

Here are some of my personal favourite images from my travels which I will continue to update over time.

One World, let’s X-PLR.

Paris Engagement Photographer | Monique and Paul

Paris Engagement Photographer - V. Opoku

“…in Copenhagen where we both worked in the same restaurant called Geranium” was how they met. Monique and Paul had me as their Paris Engagement Photographer and it was everything and more.

I continue to pick up a camera because it enables me to build connections and share stories with people throughout the world. These two are both chefs and Paris is their home for the time being. Where as Paul is a Parisian through and through, Monique is originally from San Francisco.

Food plays a big part in their story so we decided to head to a market, pick out some of bits, then find somewhere to sit and tucked in. It was the perfect afternoon in Paris to have an open picnic by The Seine River and trade stories. We discussed the favourite places we have travelled to so far (Paul’s happened to be Chicago – yep – even Monique was surprised) and some of the plans we for the future.

After the picnic, we headed back to theirs where they got changed. Without a concrete plan we hit the streets of Paris again ; We roamed about – caught the sunset at the Louvre and carried on walking until we ended up at Arc De Triomphe.

“Let’s climb up it” something I have never done and neither had Monique, so we did. We climbed up the entire spiral staircase all the way to the terrace of the Arc, took in some brilliant views of Paris and climbed back down again ; over 500 steps in total but it was so worth it!

Moe and Paul, thanks for exploring this beautiful city with me, let me know when your restaurant opens and I will be there!

For me this is how engagement sessions should be, a fun adventure, exploring new places, trying new things.

Now which couple want to take me hiking? 😉
