Celebrate life and love with the one you love in Paris!

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!

Hello, I’m Karina! I’m a professional couples engagement and portrait photographer in Paris, originally from the United States. I’ve been coming to Paris since I was 17, and living here full-time since 2014. I know Paris well, and love it so much, I can’t wait to share my favorite photography spots with you!

It’s my passion to work with couples just like you from around the world to create beautiful photographic art that’s colorful, dreamy and romantic, and that you’ll absolutely adore and be proud to share with friends and family or put on your wall.

I pride myself on amazing customer service and guidance, so that your photo experience is super enjoyable.  Hate posing? I do too! But 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. I love to laugh and get to know my clients, I hope you do too!

Let's make some Paris magic with romantic and colorful images you'll absolutely love! View more couples images here in the gallery or on the blog, and scroll below to see more details on the photo experiences.

useful info

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 rates?

Picture Me Paris photo experiences start at 199€.

How do I find you for our session?

I’ll give you directions to our meeting location when your photo session is confirmed. Usually it's near a major metro station and quite easy to find.

What if I want props like balloons for my photo session?

Some people like balloons, flowers or other props for their photo session. I’ll send you more information on good places to find props after your booking upon request.

Can you recommend a makeup artist or hair stylist?

Absolutely, I can send you a list of professional makeup artists and hair stylists in Paris after your booking upon request.

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 included 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 Platinum Experience, which is 2-3 hours in 2-3 locations. The Gold Expererience for one hour can be done at the Eiffel Tower or one other location of your choosing, a popular location is the Louvre.

Booking, payment & cancellations

Booking is super easy! You may click on the BOOK button and you’ll be taken to my calendar with a list of available dates and times and book directly. Payment can be by major credit card or Paypal. If your plans change, and you need to cancel your photo experience, you may do so without penalty with at least fourteen (14) days' notice. With 14 days’ notice, your payment will be refunded in its entirety. More details will be sent after your booking.
