I) Where to make a wedding photoshoot in Paris? Where to be photographed in Paris for his wedding?
Paris, thanks to its breathtaking monuments and its beautiful architecture, is one of the most photographed city in the world. The city changes the way its look every season, but each season has its charm.
- A typical Parisian café
In Paris, typical Parisian cafés are one of the best spot for your wedding photoshoot. photography. This is where you can take piece of life type of pictures and eat some French specialties : croissants, macarons. In order to avoid the crowds of tourists and get better picture we visit cafés early in the morning.
Moreover, It’s quite a smart idea to make a strategic stop in this place between two main locations for outfit change.
- The Eiffel Tower
What better memory of Paris than his wedding photoshoot in front of the famous Eiffel Tower?
This place is the most requested place by the bride and groom for the wedding photoshoot.
- The Louvre Museum
After the Iron Lady, the Louvre Museum is probably the most requested location for couples pictures in Paris and especially for wedding, elopement or even proposal photoshoot. The amazing architecture of the museum and the Louvre Pyramid offer both a perfect and elegant backdrop and a modern twist to your wedding photos.
As you may guess, this place is one of the most visited place in Paris. In order to avoid crowds of tourists in your pictures we recommend to shoot at sunrise or to make night photos right after sunset.
- Place Vendome
Place Vendome is one of the best places to take photos in Paris because it is so elegant and modern. The high end store fronts give the backdrop a sense of luxury. There is shade anytime of the day on one of the sides of the square. This means that we can take photos in Place Vendome basically at any time of the day.
The Parisian Place Vendome is one of the best spot to take photos in Paris because of its elegance. Thanks to the beautiful architecture of the place you’ll get a beautiful background for your wedding pictures with a touch of luxury.
- Notre Dame & Ile Saint Louis
Notre Dame Cathedral have always been favored by the bride and groom for the wedding photoshoot. This can be explain by the fact that this is probably one of the most authentic Paris photography locations because the city of Paris initiated from the two islands : Ile de la Cité and Ile Saint Louis which surround the Notre Dame Cathedral.
Unfortunately, since the fire that hit the Cathedral on April 2019, this location is recommanded for the streets, river Seine views and cafés because the Cathedral is going to be covered for quite a long time in scaffolding and you can’t have access to the little garden as you could before.
- Palais Royal
This place has character. It has a very pleasant Parisian look and its since a long time a royal place. The Parisian look can be admire with elegant architecture, sumptuous columns also known as “Colonnes de Buren” and a beautiful garden which make this place the perfect one for your wedding photoshoot. However, the Palais Royal gets crowded fast, especially around 9AM, when French people start their work day. It looks pretty every season and also in the rain. Also, some place are covered in here so rain isn’t a problem.
We have so many other places to offer for a perfect wedding photoshoot. Well-known places such as the Arc de Triomphe square, the Trocadero square, the Alexandre III bridge or Bir Hakeim. But also spots very Parisian and more authentic as the small streets of Montmartre.
II ) What if it rains on the shooting day ?
Unfortunately, It is impossible to predict in advance if it will rain or not the day of the photoshoot… Nevertheless, be relaxed, you will have beautiful pictures with or without rain! In Paris, many places are covered where it is possible to make beautiful pictures in case of rain. We know Paris by heart and all its hidden corners for more unique and romantic photos: covered secret passages, Louvre Museum, Royal Palace and so many others.
III) When is the best time to take pictures outside in Paris ?
As you may know, in terms of photography : light is the most important thing to get a good result. So, the best light for photography in general is at sunrise or sunset, what we called the “golden hour”.
For our Parisian photoshoots, we distinguish three popular starting times : sunrise shoots, late morning shoots and night photo sessions.
1) Sunrise shoot
In Paris, the sunrise varies depending on the season : in the summer it is around 5:45AM whereas in the winter it can be as late as 9:00AM. No worries, we’ll check together the precise sunrise time for your travel dates in order to have the best photoshoot.
Which are the benefits of a sunrise shoot ?
At sunrise, you get the most flattering light and there is almost no people around which is very important because Paris is one of the most visited cities. It just feels like you have rented the city out for yourself.
Which are the drawbacks ?
Even if you’re a morning person, it’s not always easy to wake up very early to get ready for a photo shoot !
2) Late morning
If you’re a late riser wishes to take its pictures later in the morning, this is the perfect time for you as those photo sessions are scheduled around 9AM-10AM.
Which are the benefits of a late morning shoot ?
The sun is already high which gives the pictures a bright and airy feel.
Which are the drawbacks ?
In late morning, the main issue is that there are already people around. So, not all the best locations will be available to take photos.
Paris, the City of Light, is so magical at night ! Night photoshoots typically start at sunset around 5:00PM in the winter and 10:30PM in the summer. Once again, no worries, we’ll check together the precise sunrise time for your travel dates in order to have the best photoshoot.
Which are the benefits of night photoshoot in Paris ?
Photos of a city that looks magical at night and gives to your picture a real romantic effect.
Which are the drawbacks of night photoshoot in Paris ?
Those night photoshoots require an associate that helps with lights. So, they are more expensive. Then, the light set-up takes time, meaning that we take less and more posed photos in the evening.
