PARIS – the city of LOVE

Paris is a fabulous destination for engagement, pre wedding or wedding photoshoots.

 Why choose Paris? It is a city that offers a unique blend of romance, culture, food, wine, fashion, history and landmarks. These elements, along with its lively atmosphere, have made Paris a favourite destination for millions of people around the world.

It is one of my absolute favourite cities in Europe for pre wedding photography.

Romantic & beautiful with many photo opportunities. Paris is simply breathtaking. 

Having a pre-wedding photoshoot in Paris will be an unforgettable experience that you and your partner will cherish forever.

Known as the City of Love it is one of the most romantic cities in the world. The stunning architecture, a perfect blend of old meets new. Beautiful parks, and quaint cobblestone streets help make for a perfect backdrop for a romantic photoshoot.

Not forgetting Paris is home to some of the most iconic landmarks in the world, from the imposing Eiffel Tower to the artistic Louvre & impressive Sacre Coeur, there are no shortage of hot spots to take some beautiful photographs.

The saying that ‘the early bird catches the worm’ is true during any photoshoot in Paris. To make the most of the day it is best to start out early to beat the tourist crowds that appear by mid morning. Early morning in Paris can offer a unique perspective on the city. The streets are quiet, and the city is just waking up.

For this reason I tend to start my photoshoots around 6am. Believe me it is worth the early start!

Another benefit to getting up early is the beautiful morning light. It can offer a soft, warm glow that is ideal for photography. The light is generally more even and can create a beautiful ambiance that is perfect for romantic or intimate photos.

There is also the opportunity to take night photos in Paris, such as the champagne spray at the top of this page. If you are booking a full day package you can take advantage of both the morning & evening sessions, with some time for yourselves in between.

There are so many lovely coffee shops and patisseries to try, pop to a museum, stroll along the Seine, or hop on the sightseeing bus.  You’ll have no trouble losing a few hours in Paris.

If you have decided upon a shorter session you will be able to choose between morning and evening depending on your preference.
