Is it okay if I interrupt my regularly scheduled posts of all-things-wedding-and-bridal and just share something I shot for fun? Okay, awesome!

Paris is the city of love. It is also the city of lots of really great, really expensive shopping, and home to some really iconic labels. It would be remiss for anyone visiting Paris to not at least take a walk through some of the more prominent ones, even if you do not plan on purchasing anything.

One evening after a long day of planned shooting, we decided to take Katie out for an impromptu evening at Chanel. Not only does this beautiful young lady look a little bit like Coco herself, but they actually share a birthday! So, of course we had to have some fun and were able to make this idea come to life courtesy of a bunch of women who love fashion, photography, and making random passers-by think they have seen a famous person. This girl is going places, y’all. (And specifically, one of those places was to dinner and drinks promptly after this shoot ended because walking around Paris makes you hungry!)

I hope you enjoy a few of my favorite images of Katie and her embodiment of the original boss babe herself, paired with some of my favorite Coco quotes.

Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.

In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
