If you are planning a Paris bridge photoshoot there is one location that you cannot miss: Alexander III bridge. This historic monument crosses the Seine river. The entire area is a wonderful backdrop for your bridge photoshoot in Paris. If you also heard about Bir-Hakeim bridge, please check more information about this Paris location here: Eiffel Tower photo sessions.
Why is Alexander III a great area for your Paris bridge photoshoot?
Alexander III bridge: This bridge is not only a beautiful historic monument carrying golden statues, winged horses and ornate lampposts. But you can also enjoy a view on the Eiffel Tower for your bridge photoshoot on Alexander III.
Riverside: To get a better view on the bridge we love to head down to the Seine riverbanks to continue your photo session there. Let’s take some photos of you with Alexander III bridge in the background.
Golden Gate: Right at the end of the Alexander III bridge is an ancient palace which has an enormous ornate gate entirely in gold. This so-called Golden Gate is another great backdrop for your Paris photo session.
Which Paris bridge photoshoot works in Alexander III area?
Engagement photo session & couple photo shoot: YES
Alexander III bridge is a great location for your Paris engagement photoshoot or couple photo session in Paris. It is such an elegant backdrop for romantic photos of the two of you.
Surprise proposal: YES
You can plan your Paris surprise proposal on Alexander III bridge as well as at the riverside. Just make sure to be here early enough to avoid crowds.
Family photo session: YES
Alexander III bridge and the area are also a lovely place for your family photo shoot in Paris.
Paris elopement wedding: YES
You can plan your Paris elopement wedding photos at any of the locations at Alexander III bridge. However for your Paris elopement ceremony we would suggest to rather plan it either at the Golden Gate or at the riverside with a view on Alexander III. Simply because you are more quiet and intimate there than when getting married on the bridge.
Solo photo session: YES
Any kind of solo photo shoot in Paris works great on this bridge and in the area of Alexander III. As your local photographers in Paris we especially like this Paris location for quinceanera photo shoots, because it is elegant and glamorous.
What time is best for your Paris bridge photoshoot?
Sunrise & morning: YES
The best time to plan your bridge photoshoot at Alexander III is at sunrise or in the morning. This bridge is very busy with traffic and passersby, cyclists etc. using it to commute to work. Also later in the day many tourists will visit the bridge.
Afternoon, evening & sunset: NO
As your Paris based photographers we don’t recommend this location for your bridge photoshoot in the afternoon or evening, simply because Alexander III will be too crowded this time of day.
What season is best for your photo shoot at Alexander III bridge?
Spring, summer, autumn: YES
All seasons of the year work equally well for your bridge photoshoot at Alexander III and in the area.
As you photographers in Paris we especially love shooting at Alexander III bridge or the Golden Gate in winter. Because even if the sky is grey, the golden colors from the bridge and gate will pop on your Paris photos.
Which other photo shoot locations are nearby?
Within walking distance
Concorde Fountain: Concorde fountain is located just a short walk away from Alexander III on a place right in front of Tuileries gardens. The fountain is beautiful to get a few additional photos after your bridge photo shoot.
Tuileries: The Tuileries gardens stretch out between Concorde fountain and the Louvre. So you can combine these photoshoot locations easily.
OUR TOP-TIP: Be aware that in winter there won’t be any water in Concorde fountain!
Only a short ride away
Alexander III bridge is located between two other main areas in Paris that we love using for photoshoots as your English speaking Paris photographers. You just need to get a cab, taxi, uber for a short ride – and decide which way to go.
Eiffel Tower: You can combine your bridge photo shoot with an Eiffel Tower photo session in the Trocadero area or an Eiffel Tower photoshoot at other Paris locations with a view on the iconic building. Read more about it on our pages dedicated to these Eiffel Tower photo shoot locations.
Louvre: If you head the other way you will get to the Louvre area where you can take photos at the famous Louvre pyramid and palace. So why not continuing with a Louvre photo session.
