The Eiffel tower for your Paris photo session.
A few photographs from a session with a classical dancer in Paris. Paris is a gold mine for romantic backdrops for your photo session. The first thing that comes to one’s mind visiting the city is the Eiffel tower. This old lady is the prime destination for anyone on a romantic journey in the city of love.
I remember the first time I went up with my parents to the third floor. I was no older then 8 year old and I still remember the moment quite vividly. Today, I am often asked for a photo session at its footsteps. Every time I remember my dad being scared of height on that day!
A few words about the Eiffel tower for your Paris photo session. My clients trust me to take them around some of the most amazing romantic locations around the city. Somehow, we always start or finish at the Eiffel tower. I was born and raised in Paris so I do know the city quite well. I also have a good understanding of my clients wishes. It is important to start a photo shoot quite early in the morning specially whether you wish to include the Eiffel tower in the pictures. Two reasons why we should do so; the first one being the light. It is all talked about in my F.A.Q page which you can refer to for some of the many question that you may ask yourself. Morning light is quite gorgeous and pleasing for portraits. The days are getting longer now and it requires a morning call at 7am the latest to start your photo session in may.
The second reason why we would have to get up early is that past 8am the first buses of tourist start to arrive at the site. By 9am the Trocadero square gets crowded and you have to juggle with the crowd and the many tourists wanted to have their photo taken in front of the monument just like you! So please, please lets wake up early enough to enjoy a beautiful sunrise together in Paris so that I can take the most romantic and creative visuals for your memories. A sunrise over the eiffel tower is a special moment to remember. You feel like you have the city all to yourself. It is a peaceful moment as you do not get many cars and traffic in the streets around.
So now if you wish to book a photo session at the Eiffel tower for your pre wedding photo shoot, an engagement or a secret proposal, you know you are going to have to get to bed quite early the day before. You need a fresh look in the morning no later then 7am! I do love my bed specially on week end as well, but i can tell you, it is all worth it at the end.
