Some of my favourite types of Paris Photoshoots

Capture the absolute best moments of your life with your own bespoke Paris photoshoot.

Montmartre photoshoot Paris

Travelling alone? Treat yourself!

I’ve been that girl, travelling alone in a big city, with nobody to take my photo in front of the city’s icons (yes, I am a selfie-stick snob).

I know the most beautiful corners of the City of Light and I would love to take you on your own personal photo tour of Paris.

The famous Paris icons are the most recognisable in the world – the Eiffel Tower, the Pyramids de Louvre, Jardins de Tuileries, the Palais Royal, and the back streets of Montmartre. Coming to Paris in Spring? Cherry Blossom photoshoots are something else…

I have created a blog post full of tips especially for Solo Travellers to Paris 

With my local knowledge and expertise, I can take you to the most iconic and photogenic locations around Paris, as well as hidden gems that are off the beaten path.

Paris Photoshoot for Couples

Not only the City of Light; Paris is the city of love and romance and also affectionately known as the City of Love. Just ask any couple who has visited if Paris really is as romantic as its reputation deems it to be?!. (oui!)

I have photographed couples for their own private Paris photoshoot for the last few years and the rate of surprise proposals here is  – not surprisingly –  high!

Other events I have photographed for couples include honeymoon photoshoots, private picnics, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day getaways, and elopements. 

I am dedicated to and passionate about, creating photographs that you will love.
Photos that you will treasure for years to come.

Family Photoshoots in Paris

I’d be incredibly honored to capture your family’s trip to Paris with your own personal photoshoot.

Creating a legacy and heirloom for your family and future generations is my “raison d’etre”.

Priceless memories of you with your kids, parents, and siblings, so that you exist in photos together with an eternal reminder of such a special moment shared.

Why book a Paris Photoshoot?

The real question is why wouldn’t you? I came to Paris for the first time with my mum in 1989. What I wouldn’t give to have photos of us together from that trip.  In fact, it makes me realise that I don’t have nearly enough photos of me and Mum together.

Do I even have enough photos of myself, that I really love and cherish? The answer is no! So it makes me VERY happy to be able to offer women and their families a wonderful and memorable experience in Paris.

I wholeheartedly encourage everyone to exist in beautiful photos to create a tangible heirloom of the best moments of your life, that you can look back on in decades to come – not only for yourself but for future generations who are searching to connect in some way with their ancestors.

Ready to Book your own Photoshoot?

I have always dreamt of having a photoshoot in Paris and Rachel made it happen; I was treated like a queen for the day… we became friends instantly as she showed me Paris to capture amazing photographs I will cherish forever.

I highly recommend Rachel to anyone looking for 5 star service; simply amazing photographer. Her attention to every detail was fantastic; a talented woman! Thank you again, Rachel.


I would be so honoured to be your private photographer in Paris.

Lets create a Paris photoshoot experience that you will never forget!


What time does the photo shoot start?

The best time for photo shoots is early in the morning. I know I have talked about sunrise photoshoots in the past, but honestly, the best light is around 45 minutes after sunrise. The odds of catching a stunning sunrise are quite rare.  Mornings are also ideal as there will be fewer people making our time together more enjoyable and easier to capture those epic moments!

If you are just not a morning person, we can make later in the day work too though there will be some locations that are simply too busy e.g Trocadero.

In any case, we will work out the perfect starting time together before our photoshoot. 

What should I wear?

Any photoshoot package you book with me will include the option to have multiple outfit changes—the sky is the limit here! Bring as many outfits as you’d like, as long as you bear in mind the time allotment. As far as specifics, couples usually aim to match in some regard. You don’t have to wear identical outfits but could wear complimentary colours or tones, like both wear jewel tones or neutrals. Remember not to wear anything too busy or fussy—this can distract from the photo.

For women, you can’t go wrong with a flowy dress with lots of movement. If you want to wear heels, I recommend bringing a pair of flats or sandals to walk between locations. Remember, Paris is an old city, so many of the streets are cobblestone, which is not very heel-friendly! For guys, semi-formal or plain slacks and a button-down shirt always looks great.

If you book my VIP experience or above, you also get access to my studio wardrobe. This is a collection of gorgeous gowns, cocktail dresses, formal wear, and accessories. I have a range of sizes to fit my clientele. You can see a bit of what I have available by flipping through some of my photos, and you can learn more in my blog post about my Studio Wardrobe.

If you want, we can also utilize some props for the photos! Think about what might best symbolize your relationship, or if you want to do some especially Parisian props like berets or baguettes. Remember to have fun with it, as this couple did with their picnic-themed Paris photo shoot.

Pre-Shoot Communication

I value communication highly when I’m booking a photo shoot, whether it’s a solo shoot, one with a couple, or with a family. We can try to organise a video or audio chat before the date of your scheduled shoot so we can talk through your vision and goals for the session however if you prefer to stick with emails that is fine too!  Anything works as long as we get an open communication channel established!

Hair and Makeup

I highly suggest you consider a hair and makeup professional to assist with your look before the shoot. Getting professionally “done up” can be an extremely rewarding experience, and I find it helps people feel extra confident in front of the camera! If you go for a professional hair and makeup artist, keep in mind they average around €250. Please add up to 90 minutes to allow for time for this appointment.

What if it rains on the day?

November '23 was the rainiest month since I started photographing clients in Paris and two of my shoots were in the wildest weather possible. Hannah's is one of them.

There are covered areas near the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre and I have never cancelled and probably never will cancel due to rain. I am however flexible and if it is possible for both of us I am happy to reschedule to a later time or even another day. 

If you're not afraid of getting a little damp, we can use the weather as part of the narrative with umbrellas and trench coats as a cute accessory.

Transportation on Your Photo Shoot Day

Taxis may not always be readily available the day of in the city. Rather than relying on the increasingly unreliable UBER,  I recommend downloading the French-based Taxis G7 or hiring a private driver to accompany us throughout the photo shoot. A private driver or a friend driving can also provide some cover for you if it rains or you need to make a quick change!

Your final Photos

From 2023 I have introduced an Online Gallery where you can choose your final photos. It will be ready for you to view within 7-14 days. We can discuss this further during the booking process. 

Family Photographer Paris

Exist in photos for yourself, for your children, for future generations

“Family photography lets children learn who they are and where they fit. They learn their genealogy and the uniqueness of their own family and its story. When a child sees a family portrait with them included in the photograph they say to themselves: ‘These people have me as part of what they are, that’s why I belong here. This is where I come from.” – Judy Weiss

By investing in, and displaying your family portraits in your home, you are showing your children how proud you are of them, and affirming their place in the world.

Mother and Daughter Photoshoots

Mothers, daughters, Paris

I first came to Paris with my mum when I was 14 years old. All I have left from that trip is the memory of us losing each other on the Metro and running out of time to see the Eiffel Tower up close!

So when I photograph mums and daughters together I can’t help but feel a little emotional and wish that I had something like this too. Beautiful portraits of us – to be held, touched and marvelled over; something that will be treasured in the future not only by me and my mum but by the future generations who come after us.

Taking my granddaughters to Paris was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I’m so glad I found Rachel to capture this special trip with photographs. I loved the creative photos on her website and was hopeful she could work her magic with my crew. And she did! Rachel is a true artist and my family and friends were thrilled beyond belief with the beautiful photographs. Thank you Rachel!
