For us, it’s not just about taking photos; it’s also about telling your stories, creating an amazing experience, and of course, having a lot of fun.
Getting the perfect time for your couple & engagement photoshoot
The best time is around sunrise and sunset. If you’re interested in shooting at famous attractions like with the Eiffel tower, the Louvre museum, etc. then we’d suggest starting at around sunrise time to have the best light and avoid the crowd. Sunset is beautiful as well, however, we would need to shoot at other less crowded locations for a smooth session.
We know it’s hard to get up early, but you never know if you never try! Trust us, do it at least once, you’ll understand why Paris is magical and the reason we all fall in love with this city. If it’s forecast to be rainy and you are not a fan of it, we can surely arrange the time for you?

Can you help us find other vendors for the engagement shoot as well?
Besides personalizing the itinerary, we can also help you to find suitable vendors such as makeup/hair artists, florists, transportation, etc.
What will transportation be like during the engagement photoshoot?
While walking in Paris is always great because we can discover so many hidden spots, However, if the locations are too far from each other, Uber/taxi is the better alternative. If we’re doing a multi-hour shoot with a few outfit changes, renting a car is definitely more convenient. In this case, we could help you to book a car with a driver as well for your Paris engagement photos.
Inspiration for your couple & engagement photos
For a Paris couple photoshoot, go for neutral colors or simple patterns. We’d recommend a stylish dress or an evening gown. Remember to stay elegant, and classy!
Classy & Elegant outfit
A more airy, flowy dress would create gorgeous movements in photos! For guys, we’d recommend wearing (semi) formal to casual style suits. Your photo result would come out perfect if both of your outfits match with each other in terms of style and color.
Casual couple outfit
Apart from formal wear, you could go for something casual like jeans with a vintage top, make it Parisian 😉 A nice and chic coat with a scarf is recommended as well during autumn and winter.
If you’re thinking of wearing heels, remember to bring also a pair of flats to the shoot as it is not easy to walk on heels on the cobblestones.
Adding some accessories for your engagement
Personal accessories are a good addition to the photoshoot. They could be something personal that sparks up your relationship. Don’t forget your engagement ring! We’d love to get some photos of it close up to mark your special occasion!
It is always a good idea to stay fun, extra creative. If you are looking to add a bit of Parisian quintessence into your photo shooting, you could prepare some iconic features of the city, such as newspapers, macarons, baguettes, or berets…. Or imagine popping champagne in the middle of the street, wouldn’t it be so fun and amazing?
On the shooting day, leave your important belongings at your hotel/airbnb. Bring essential only! And please remember to eat something before the shoot. Good food keeps up the good mood and it shows on the photos. ?Traffic in Paris can be unpredictable sometimes so factor in the travel time that might be with traffic.
Last but not least, stay cool, relaxed, and just have fun! We are not just taking photos of you, but we are also creating a story about each couple entrusting us. It is such a unique experience that we want to share with you. In the end, we are in Paris – the city of love, aren’t we?
