How long does a photoshoot last?
It actually depends on the number of locations and outfits you’re thinking of. But no worries, we’re here to help! Here are a few options:
Great for 1 location if you are wearing a more sophisticated outfit (i.e. a heavy wedding gown which requires adjustments and more care to move around) and another casual outfit in another location nearby!
Perfect if you want to shoot in more locations with different outfits or to have a larger variety of pictures. It’s possible to change outfits in a café or in a rental car for more convenience.
The finest way to best tell your story. You can combine shooting at a luxury hotel or a chateau (castle) as well as having multiple outfit changes. You can even consider it as doing a Paris elopement.
The perfect time for Paris pre-wedding photos
Paris can’t be more beautiful than during the golden hours. If the forecast is however rainy and if you don’t feel like being Gene Kelly, we will for sure arrange another timing!
Sunrise is the best time if you fancy a photo session in the most famous locations of the capital (Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, etc.) to catch morning lights and avoid the crowds. We know it’s not always easy to get up early but believe us, do it once and you’ll understand why we all fall in love with this city!
Sunset also offers beautiful lighting and is more suitable for intimate locations in Paris that are less crowded. It’s a great opportunity to discover the most romantic hidden gems of the capital.
The weather around the year
Each of the four seasons brings out a unique personality of Paris. No matter which time of year you choose to visit the city, there will always be something unique about it.

Other secrets you might need to know
A walk 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, then it will be more convenient to rent a car.
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?
