I’ll be glad to be your Paris Photographer!
If you’re thinking of taking a photo session in Paris with a professional photographer to have some wonderful memories of your Parisian stay, you’re in the right place!
Below you will find all the information for an unforgettable photographic experience in Paris.
Here you can see a small portfolio that can offers you an idea of my style of photography.
You can decide to entrust me completely with the choice of the photographic style for our photoshoot, or to be an active part of the artistic process sending me your ideas and inspirations by e-mail.
Paris offers so many amazing locations for breathtaking photos.
You can choose your favorites among the most scenographic:
We can have a photoshoot in every moment of the day, but the very best is in the morning because of few people around.
If you are interested in a short photoshoot ( 30 minutes ) at the Eiffel Tower it can be done also around midday.
Anyway, there is no need of a sunrise photo session if you are looking for fashion style photos
If you are interested in a sunrise photoshoot, as you know sunrise is not always at the same time, CLICK HERE for a link to a very clear timetable with the sunrise hours in Paris.
The sunrise slot is reserved for 1h30′ or 3h photo session.
You don’t have to be a professional model to enjoy the photo session experience and get great photos. Even if it’s your first time in front of a camera we surely be able to get great results.
The most important thing is to be prepared!
How to get ready?
There are 4 important aspect that you have to consider: outfit, poses, make up and props.
At first, you have to feel comfortable with your outfit. It should be something that is in your style.
Having said that, surely an elegant and scenographic look is ideal for getting sensational photos.
Remember to bring high heels but also some comfortable shoes for walking between the locations.
In Paris you can find all kind of services, with PANOPLY for example you can rent one shot an amazing dress of Valentino, Mark Jacobs, Rochas,…
There are also many other similar services: MYCOUTURECORNER , UNEROBEAPARIS , DRESSINGAVENUE .
Consider that in a 1h30′ photoshoot we have enough time for a couple of different outfits and in a 3h photoshoot for three.
You can change in a Café or in my portable pop up changing tent ( I bring it only during summer ).
As I already said, you don’t have to be a professional model to get great photos, but you have to get prepared for the photo session.
That means that you have to try different poses at home in front of a mirror taking inspirations from magazines or from the web.
You can use Instagram or Pinterest to find many ideas about them, CLICK HERE for a link to the Pinterest Board where I collect inspirations about poses.
If you have planned to do the make up by yourself, great!
Try it a couple of days before to be sure about it and to understand how it takes to get ready.
It’s important to have a great make up but also to be in time for your photoshoot!
If you are looking for a make up artist in Paris, I’ll be glad to share some contacts with you.
Props are not necessary but they can be useful to give a touch of sensational to your photos and also, if it’s your first photoshoot, they help you to be more confident.
You can bring whatever you want, the only important thing is to tell me exactly what it is so I can think about the photos.
If you want I can bring the balloons, it’s an extra ( + € 30 ) and I need to know it at least three days before the photoshoot. About the color of the balloons, I suggest to choose one that match with your outfit.
Props: Birthday numbers
The great day has come, now you only have to arrive on time and have a lot of fun!
Once you have choose your outfit, practiced your poses, planned your make up, and get your props or asked me to provide them, you only have to arrive on time for the photoshoot!
It’s so important to be on time because photography is a question of light, locations and alchemy between photographer and models.
Coming late, the light will be different, there will be more other people around and even if I’m very patient I won’t have the same state of mind. It’s really important, BE ON TIME!
For these reason provide me your Parisian address, and I’ll send you an e-mail that clearly explains all the possible transport solutions to get in time to the meeting point and a link to the most useful free app to move in Paris.
Before the photo session we will have a 5′ briefing on location, spots, poses, my way of working and I’ll give you just a few suggestions.
There a few questions that you surely still have, here the answers to the most common ones!
If you cancel your photoshoot a week before you’ll be completely refunded in a few days.
The weather in Paris is a bit unpredictable and that’s the reason why I confirm the time and meeting point the day before after a weather forecast check.
In case of heavy rain I’ll propose you to re-schedule or a 30mins photoshoot at Pont de Bir-Hakeim ( it is covered and offers us the opportunity of taking amazing photos with the Eiffel Tower on the background ), If it’s not possible I’ll refund you the advanced payment.
At the same time, some light rain or showers here and there can sometimes be the good excuse for an empty Paris. And what is more romantic than a couple under an umbrella ?
Just look at them. Share. Print. Everything you’d like!
You can pay the deposit by PayPal or by Bank Transfer. You can pay what is left in cash or by PayPal.
Of course, you will alternate in the poses and at the end you will choose the photos together.
No, I don’t offer a service of online selection. You can select your favorite photos right after the photoshoot directly on my Mac.
For a couple of days I’ll keep all the files, just in case you are interested into buying the entire batch of unedited photos or Raw files.
