You deserve a romantic Picture Me Paris couples photo session!

What better place to celebrate a honeymoon, birthday, anniversary, engagement--or just because you never have beautiful portraits of yourselves, than in Paris, the capital of romance and love! I love working with couples to create beautiful photographic art in Paris. I specialize in colorful, dreamy and romantic Paris portraiture. Color is elusive in Paris, they call it "Gray Paree". That's why I'm obsessed with flowers, shrubs, leaves--anything with some color to make your images come alive. 

Hate posing? No worries! I'll help you with natural looking poses, so you feel comfortable, share my Paris insights and we'll have a lot of fun too.

Let's make some Paris magic with romantic and colorful images you'll absolutely love! View more couples images here in the gallery

useful info

there are dozens of photographers in paris, why should we choose you?

There are so many amazing photographers in Paris, and we all take beautiful photographs. So what stands out about me? I'm super professional, fun, friendly and I'll bend over backwards to make you happy! I'm American, and while I love to work with people from all over the world, I really shine when I work with other Americans, Canadians, Brits, Aussies etc because I know the level of customer service you're accustomed to. I'll communicate clearly with you, make you feel comfortable, ask about you (I actually care about you as people, not just a number), share some laughter, and since I've been coming to Paris since I was 17 (don't ask how many years ago that was!), I know this city so well, and the very best spots and angles for your gorgeous Paris images. 

what's the best time of day for my session?

We conduct our couples photo sessions in the morning, depending on the season, usually between 8:00 am and 11:00 am. This is best for nice daylight and we'll have a few less tourists in our images. If you prefer an afternoon or evening session, please contact me and I'll be happy to discuss.

what are the prices? i can't find them listed!

The package prices are listed above, depending on the session you select.

how do i find you for our session?

We agree on the time and place we'll meet. Usually it's near a major metro station and quite easy to find. During our session, for transportation we can walk (especially if the weather is nice) or take a taxi. 

what's the weather like?

It rains a lot in Paris and is often cloudy. The good news is that the city is beautiful in the rain, it actually shimmers. It's always a good idea to take an umbrella along with you, especially in the winter. Our sessions are done rain or shine, but I'll send you more information on weather options. In the meantime, check out the rainy day gallery here, and you can see how beautiful Paris is in the rain. A lot of my clients get really worried about rain, they worry their photos won't turn out, they worry they may get wet. As it rains so much in Paris, we have to work with the weather or we'd never get out if we never went out in the rain. Instead of fearing the rain, think of it as a romantic Paris adventure, to be able to share an umbrella with the ones you love in the Paris rain, it's distinctly Parisian. Last winter it rained every single day in Paris, I shot beautiful, romantic rainy images of couples in the rain.

how do we get around?

Transportation is not provided but you can get anywhere in Paris fairly quickly by public transport, such as metro, bus, taxi or Uber. Transportation during our session, if required (i.e. taxi), is not covered in the cost of your session. Most transport costs are between 10-20€ for anywhere we will go. Please make sure you have euro cash, as most taxis in Paris do not accept credit cards.

i'd like to book a gender reveal or maternity shoot, is this possible?

Absolutely! You can review a small sampling of maternity and gender reveal sessions here

i'd like to do two locations in an hour, not just one, this should be possible, right?

The rule of thumb is one location per hour, sometimes very rarely it's possible to combine locations in an hour, like the Louvre and Tuileries Gardens right next door, but as a general rule, I do not like to rush. I'm an artist, and need to take proper time to ensure your images are amazing. I also want your experience to be amazing, and relaxing, not rushing from one location to another and not having quite enough time to get the results we want. If you really would like to be photographed in two Paris locations, please consider the Diamond Session, which is two hours and two locations. The Classic for one hour can be done at the Eiffel Tower or one other location of your choosing.
