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 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.
