Features of a Portrait Session
Take Paris home with you
Capture your visit to Paris with backdrops such as the Louvre and the Pont des Arts for your portrait photos, or possibly Notre Dame and the small streets around it. Maybe a stroll around the Marais is more your style with a stop in a Parisian café along the way… We have a selection of favourite spots that we know you will like!
Contemporary and casual style
It is your smile and emotions that make your time in Paris so unforgettable. Our photographers use a casual and journalistic approach to record those moments. Dress up for the occasion or come as you are. You may receive some direction, but mostly you can expect just to hear 'Have fun, you are in Paris!'
A package for every occasion
Cannot decide which area of the city best reflects your personality? Mix and match different locations to create your own romantic photographic story of your visit. We recommend to go early in the morning to have the city to yourself or late in the day to get images in the nice late afternoon light.
Stunning on-line gallery
Access the retouched photographs from your portrait session in a private online gallery within 10-14 days, and download high resolution digital image files to use as you like. The digital files allow for photographic prints that meet the most demanding needs, or simply share the images in your gallery with family and friends.

The Louvre and along the river
The spectacular architecture of the famous Louvre provides endless portrait possibilities. We start in the two courtyards, with their ornate doors, arched windows and the spellbinding Pyramid. Just opposite the Louvre courtyard is the Pont des Arts bridge, a famous gathering point for artists, lovers and picnickers. We finish the session along the Seine River with the Institut de France building in the background.
Notre Dame and the Seine River
On the historic Ile de la Cité, the Cathedral of Notre Dame is a fine example of Gothic architecture. We will spend some time in the gardens around the cathedral using its beautiful design as a backdrop. After making our way across Ile St Louis, we spend the remainder of our time in the quiet pedestrian streets on the 'right bank' of the Seine river, using its traditional street scenes to capture the romantic setting of Paris.
Around the Eiffel Tower
Few monuments define a city the way the Eiffel Tower does Paris, and including it in any photograph makes the city instantly recognizable. We start at the Bir Hakim bridge for some vistas of the monument framed by the Seine. As we get closer to the base of the tower, our photographers capture you walking along the bridge and along the Seine. We also go around the main esplanade for a classic view and the gardens for a seasonal touch.
Around the Alexandre III Bridge
Spanning the Seine, the Alexandre III bridge is the most ornate bridge in Paris. Its exuberant Art Nouveau lamps and winged horses provide dramatic backdrops to capture your visit. The central location allows us to photograph you strolling on the bridge and along the Seine, with the background including the golden dome of Les Invalides chapel, the Eiffel Tower off in the distance and details of the nearby Grand Palais.
A stroll around le Marais
This area of central Paris is full of charm to catch your smiles and special moments. We may start the portrait session under the arches and small garden of Place des Vosges, and continue through the narrow streets that make this area so pleasant. We'll capture you enjoying a drink at a terrace in a Paris café or maybe musing in a small courtyard. This area is best early in the morning to avoid crowds and create casual, yet elegant photos of You in Paris.
The village atmosphere of Montmartre
Overlooking Paris from its hilltop location, Montmartre sets the stage for your romantic portrait session. We’ll photograph you walking the small streets and lovely stairs leading up the hill. Stop in a café, enjoy a croissant and soak up the moment! Want to make this portrait session extra special? Create your own story and come dressed with your favourite retro outfit. For best results, plan this photo shoot first thing in morning.
