Frequently Asked Questions about photoshoot in Paris
Dressed up or casual, that’s the real question !
Well, it’s really up to you, both are working well for me !
Check some pictures of photoshoots in Paris in the instagram portfolio and blog, and choose what inspires you the most… If possible, avoid stripes & checked patterns !
Also, in case of night shots in Paris, I would not recommend to be dress both with black clothes, a blue or red dress would be much better.
You can also bring some flats or sandals to walk more easily in between the shots, in case you are wearing painful high heels.
What should I/we wear for winter ?
2 possibilities :
You can decide to go for a spring/summer feeling anyway and wear a skirt or dress but you may be cold a bit during the process of taking pictures. You can bring a jacket for in between the shots of course.
Or you can decide to wear something more casual and more fitting with the season & weather (trousers, thick tights, boots, etc). You can use this chance to play with accessories (hat, scarf, change of jackets…)
The most important is to make sure that you fit together and that one is not overdressed compared to the other one 😉
As it takes time, it is possible to change clothes from the 2h sessions (Not possible in 1h or less).
If we have planned to stop at a cafe for photos, it could be an opportunity.
But I also have a cabin tent that can be very usefull : bigger & cleaner than any toilet in Paris.
The most important is to let me know before the shoot to be sure I bring it 😉
If you plan to change outfits during the session or to come with accessories, the best option is to come with a small suitcase or even better a backpack. Avoid shopping bags with brands or clothes on hangers that we can not hang around. It will be easier to carry everything around this way. My best advice is to bring just what you really need 😉
We always check the weather in Paris carefully during the previous days before the photoshoot, and we always try to reschedule (before or after the original date) and find an alternative date in case of rain, given your and my schedule. If we cannot make it happen, we will happily refund you.
At the same time, some light rain or showers here and there can sometimes be the good excuse for an empty Paris.
Plus it is easy to find some covered alleys, galleries, passages, etc. in Paris. And what is more romantic than a couple under an umbrella !
Don’t worry. We are use to it and I have many tips and recommandations for you even if you’re solo or with friends, childrens… depending on the feeling you wish on pictures of course 😉
You can also decide at any time and suggest a special shoot depending on your inspiration !
We keep in mind that our goal is to have a great time together and to be sure that you will have a really good souvenirs and pictures from this day.
No, we will create a private & personal gallery just for your photos. You will get your high resolution photos in jpeg format (including personal rights release – you own your photos, no hard print).

Just remember that it’s not allowed to use them for commercials as it will be a private session in Paris.
