It goes without saying that I am blessed. I love everyone that come upon my path and influence me to become a better person.
I will try below to give you a few advise to optimize your photo session with me in Paris and elsewhere in France so that when the photo shoot comes, you will just relax and feel comfortable in front of the camera!
It is simple afterall! When you work with someone you trust, when you focus on enjoying the time you spend with your partner in Paris, you forget about the camera, you are just having fun and you allow me to just do what i love best, that is taking some wonderful portraits of two of you.
Photography is like storytelling to me. I capture everything from portraits to candid intimate moments in a fun manner. My positive energy, attitude and love for my craft keep my clients at ease and I'll go through any lengths to get the perfect lighting and frame. I do everything; weddings, elopements, private portraits and social events. Photography is my passion and i want to share it with you. "Love Paris Photographer" is about lifestyle photography.
I will need time to edit and ensure the quality of the final set of photographs, but i make sure to have your photos ready in the next 5 days guaranteed. I know you'll be exited to see and share them, so i wont make you wait too long. I pride myself to be fast and efficient, your photos are my priority. Once edited, I single retouch each one of them in photoshop. You will receive a set of high definition files so that you can make beautiful prints as well as a set of smaller files size to use for your social media and the internet.
After choosing the best photographs from the time we have spent together, I will return to the studio and carefullly edit and retouched the selected photos. I have a set number of photographs included in each packages so that you have a rough idea of the final number of images. I usually guarantee 25 photographs per hour of photography. I am fast and efficient ( and a lot of fun to be with!) I would certainly include any other photographs which look great to the final set without any extra cost. This is important, most photographers will charge you extra should they go over the set amount of photos agreed on. I dont ... I guarantee a minimum and often you will get more at the end. This is part of our special services!

What time of day is best for a photo session in Paris? In general, mornings, right after sunrise is best. Depending on the time of the year, it could be as early as 6:00 am and 10:00 am in winter months. Photography is all about light, I work with natural light and rarey use flash. I want to make sure that I have the best light if this is at all possible for your photo shoot. There are usually fewer tourists out early morning as well, although there will always be some. Afternoon light can also be gorgeous. particularly in winter. It may be easier for you to surprise your girlfriend in the late afternoon, as you would be discovering the city by then. The ideal times in the afternoon are be between 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm, again this will vary depending on the season. It is really up to you though. I work with any situation and with a little planning can make anything work!
In an ideal situation, I would recommend early morning at sunrise because of the light and the fact that you will have Paris all to yourself though.
Photography is an art form or a craft rather, that you practice over and over again, until, with age like a good wine the magic happens. It all becomes natural and second nature. I do understand that for most of my clients, they are not used to having their portrait taken and kiss in public in the streets of Paris.
An essential part of my job is to help you feel at ease. I will give you directions along the way so that the final result will be elegant and flattering. I will share with you the tips of the trade as to poses and expressions. I will help you to look your best and feel comfortable.
Very quickly, you will forget that there may be a crowd near by. With the assistance of a true professional, who will get the best out of you, you will simply enjoy the moment with your loved one.

I will be sending you all of the retouched photos in high definition so that you have the choice to do the printing and album making yourself. If you would like a tangible memory and printed photographs of your Paris photo session, i can make a wedding album and take care of the printing for you. We can discuss which photos you would like in an album and details like album size and the style of the final product. I know how nice it will be to pass on a timeless photo album to share now and in the many years to come.

We have clients who wish to add a video to our photography services. You may even decide that you only wish to have a video and no photos. Anything is indeed possible. Video is a great fit for a photo package that include three hours of shooting. You need a fair amount of footage to be able to do a good editing and tell the story of your Parisian experience. Video is especially appropriate for a wedding announcement or a lifestyle story of your engagement in the city of love. If you are interested to add a video, we would have to customize something special for you. The best would be to reach out with a detailed email explaining to us what your vision might be and we will work from there and start planning your day?

You can trust us completely with the most important day of your life. We will keep your interests, safety, comfort, and fun as our top priority.
I am often asked about the weather situation in Paris? I have to say that we certainly do not get eternal sunshine like in southern California. It can be overcast, and it does rain as well quite often even in August. I started my photographic carreer in London and I can tell you Paris is a real blessing for a photographer. The light is usually quite soft, and in case of rain, YES, I will bring some cool umbrellas which we can use as props as well. It usually drizzle for a little while then it stops. We can always shelter in a cafe or decide to shoot in a museum if we are facing a hurricane situation. I have never had to cancel a photo session because of the rain. You actually can get some amazing photographs with reflections in the streets. We will simply all get a little web if anything but it will certainly wont stop the fun and you will get some gorgeous photographs for some of them dancing in the rain may be!
