Paris Winter Engagement

I don't know about you but these engagement photographs, taken in Paris, sure put me in the mood for winter. I'm usually not one for engagement photos, in fact, I think this is the very first time I've ever posted a set but I couldn't resist these sweet Parisian shots.  They feel more natural than the million others I've come across. I know, I know, how unromantic of me but honestly, all I've been seeing lately are engagement photos that look more like advertisements for "happily ever after". Don't get me wrong, I know it is important for some couples to capture the engagement period but sometimes they look, well, forced. They're usually too staged, too many props, too many wardrobe changes, too much I tell ya! But if it's ya thing then it's ya thing, it's just not mine. What happen to photographing, at that very moment of the engagement candid shot? which do you prefer candid or staged?
