Couple photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower
This couple photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower will make you want to get up early in the morning to book a sunrise photo session in Paris just as Kayla & Diego did. Damien, Paris based photographer at The Parisian Photographers, met with them at the Eiffel Tower before sunrise to create these magical Paris couple photos. Here Damien will tell you everything about this exceptional couple photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower.
Eiffel Tower couple photoshoot at sunrise
On the morning of Kayla & Diego’s Paris couple photoshoot in August I met them at the Eiffel Tower just a bit before sunrise. After just a few first tips I shared with them as guidance for their couple photo session at the Eiffel Tower, I ask Kayla & Diego to pose for the first pictures – in order not to waste precious minutes before the sun starts rising. As their professional Paris photographer I wanted to take a few silhouette couple pictures before sunrise and then when then sun start rising, capture more Eiffel Tower couple photos with all the colors of sunrise.
As local photographer in Paris I like to shoot in August. The days are still warm and many Parisian are gone for holidays. So it’s a rather quiet summer month in Paris. However shooting in August also means that once the sun has risen the light can be very bright and temperature can quickly rise as well. While you may still need an extra layer before sunrise, once the sun is up you’ll quickly feel too hot and may want to remove your jacket or scarf.
That’s also what Diego & Kayla did for their couple photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower. And as their English speaking Paris photographer I am now carrying their backpack with the extra clothes while shooting. So if you need to bring a bag to your Paris photo session, choose a backpack if possible and only bring what you really necessarily need. This way it will be easy to carry your belongings over the duration of your couple photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower.
Varying conditions for your Paris photoshoot
We really had exceptionally great conditions on the day of Kayla & Diego’s couple photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower. But the conditions for every photo session are different, that’s why we need to remain flexible and work with the weather, temperature, crowds that we encounter.
Let me give you a few examples: On the day of Kayla & Diego’s Eiffel Tower photoshoot it was quiet, with not many other people around, and also warm, which helps a lot to fully enjoy the photo shoot completely. It really helps to relax and make perfect pictures.
Also if you would like to recreate the sunrise photos of Kayla & Diego at the Eiffel Tower fountain with reflection in the water, then as your experienced Paris photographer I am always happy to try. But it is not entirely depending on me. Because the Eiffel Tower fountain is only filled with water during the summer months.
Also even a soft wind can create ripples on the surface of the water, making it impossible to get a clear reflection for the pictures. And it’s quite hard to predict the weather and wind condition on the day of your Paris photo session. Especially two months prior, the time when Kayla & Diego booked their photo shoot with me. But we will alway try and – with a bit of luck – succeed.
Couple photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower
One of my personal favorite pictures of Kayla and Diego Paris couple photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower is the ones we took in front of Trocadero Palace (you may also know it as “Théâtre National de la Danse” or “Palais Chaillot”) with the reflection of the Eiffel Tower in the windows and the pigeons sitting on the roof.
In just one hour of couple photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower we were able to take pictures with the iconic architecture in the background as well as more intimate couple pictures. You can see on the photos that Kayla & Diego were having fun. And I’m sure they could have spent their whole day in front of the camera.
Right after their couple photo session in Paris I started editing their pictures so that Kayla & Diego could share a few first photos with their friends and family as a sneak peek. The couple was able to create a nice keepsake of their romantic couple trip to Paris. And I am so happy that they enjoyed their Paris photo session and couple pictures at the Eiffel Tower.
Here is what Kayla & Diego said about their experience with The Parisian Photographers: “THE PARISIAN PHOTOGRAPHERS ARE AMAZING and our Paris photographer, Damien, was THE BEST! If you want to do a photoshoot in Paris, you need to book him! Damien was very kind, responsive, and very professional. He provided screenshots of where we would meet and gladly provided a picture of himself so we were able to identify him. He even kindly carried our bags during our Eiffel Tower photoshoot.”
“The experience exceeded our expectations. My partner and I had a one hour photo session with him and he met with us at the Trocadero on-time. He picked out all the best spots and was able to shoot with no people in our pictures. Damien told my partner and I how to pose and knew when to switch locations when the lighting changed. He is a true professional. I can’t recommend The Parisian Photographers and Damien enough! You have to book Damien during your experience here. It will amplify your trip to Paris!!”
