Eiffel Tower Photoshoot
There are so many different locations that you can use for your Eiffel Tower photoshoot. Trocadero may be the most popular area for your Eiffel Tower photo session, but by far not the only beautiful place for your Eiffel Tower photo shoot :
This is the most popular area after Trocadero for photos at the Eiffel Tower. You can enjoy a great view on the Eiffel Tower from this beautiful bridge, with several angles : Bir-Hakeim bridge has a balcony facing the Eiffel Tower that we love using for your photoshoot (with a horse statue)
OUR TOP-TIP: As Bir-Hakeim is a double layer bridge it is a great location for your Eiffel Tower photoshoot, in case the weather is not great. Standing on the bridge you will be covered by the second layer and protected from the rain.
OTHER FAVORITE SPOTS
for an Eiffel Tower photo shoot:
Eiffel Tower riverside
There is a beautiful stretch of the Seine riverbanks between Trocadero and Bir-Hakeim bridge. At the riverside you have an open view at the Eiffel Tower from up close. And this locations is pretty quiet.
Eiffel Tower street views
There are a few streets in the area from where you can see the Eiffel Tower and at the same time enjoy the backdrop of a typical Parisian street (think cobble stone, elegant lampposts, Parisian architecture) for your Eiffel Tower photoshoot.
Alexandre III Bridge
You can have a view on the Eiffel Tower from Alexandre III Bridge.
for your Eiffel Tower photoshoot:
Sunrise & Morning: YES
The best time for your Eiffel Tower photoshoot is sunrise and morning time, because the Eiffel Tower locations are popular among travelers and locals alike. But it will depend on exactly where you’d like to have your Eiffel Tower photoshoot. So let’s schedule your Paris photo session here as early as we can to beat the crowds.
Afternoon: SO SO…
Beware that it will be busy, so it only works if you don’t mind that there may be many passersby. Better avoid afternoon shoots at the Eiffel Tower in summer, it’s too crowded! Otherwise the riverside, the street views and Bir-Hakeim bridge would be the best choice at this time of the day.
Evening & sunset photoshoot at Eiffel Tower : YES BUT…
If you want to take sunset photos at the Eiffel Tower and night photos when the Eiffel Tower is sparkling, then Bir-Hakeim bridge is definitely your best choice for your Eiffel Tower photoshoot.Check with us on the best time and how to schedule it.
for your Eiffel Tower photoshoot:
Couple & engagement photoshoot
All Eiffel Tower locations that we mentioned here can be used for your Paris engagement or couple photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower. But keep in mind that morning is best !
Bir-Hakeim bridge provides the best view, but the riverside is more quiet in case you would appreciate more privacy for your Paris surprise proposal. For a street view for your Eiffel Tower proposal, check with your photographer.
Family photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower
All Eiffel Tower locations work great for your family photo session in Paris, especially Bir-Hakeim. And what about combining your family photoshoot with a stop at a café ?
Elopement photoshoot at Eiffel Tower
For your ceremony, our top recommendation is the Eiffel Tower riverside as it is the most quiet and intimate Eiffel Tower location. Bir-Hakeim bridge is also great for the view, but it is busier there. Check with your Paris celebrant if you need more details.
Solo photoshoot at Eiffel Tower
Any of these locations can be used for your solo photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower. We love shooting Personal branding photos at the riverside or in a Parisian Café. Fashion photoshoots, Paris blogger photo sessions and quinceanera photos are great at Bir-Hakeim bridge.
