just a few beautiful couples i've photographed

Karina helped with absolutely everything I needed in order to surprise my fiancé to be. Karina helped with the location and kept everything as secretive as possible, my girlfriend had no idea!
On the day of the proposal Karina was professional, friendly and super knowledgeable of Paris. Karina enjoyed listening to the stories of how we met and how we connected.
The result of her work is outstanding and the pictures were high resolution and perfect. I believe I made the right choice by contacting Karina.
Thank you again for such a fantastic day and perfect pictures.

Who is Picture Me Paris? It's me, Karina!

Work with me and let's make some Paris magic!

Loved working with Karina and my now fiancee LOVED her as well. I first contacted Karina when I found her website through searching the internet. I had already booked a trip to Paris and I planned on proposing and I wanted someone to capture the special moment. Karina helped me brainstorm and create the perfect scenario. She helped me with ideas and always responded to my emails immediately. She helped me pick the perfect spot and helped work with me on dress wear ideas as well. Once I arrived in Paris I met her at the spot that we agreed on and she met my (then) girlfriend...they chatted for a while to get to know each other and she helped position us in a few different poses....all leading up to how she magically helped get my ring box from my bag and into my back-pocket without my girlfriend noticing or suspecting a thing. I was able to propose and Karina captured EVERY moment. It was so special, my fiancee began crying as she said YES and it was so special. What made it the best was that Karina was such a kind caring person and showed emotion as well and was not a robot that just snapped pictures. Karina allowed us plenty of time to celebrate and never rushed us...and when we were ready she showed us to the next locations. If I ever have the opportunity to visit Paris again...which I plan on doing because its a very amazing place....I will be using Karina again. This is a decision you will not regret, I promise.
