Hey, fabulous soon-to-be models of the City of Love! If you’ve already booked a photoshoot with us, first of all, merci beaucoup! Now, let’s chat about the exciting part – picking the perfect Parisian backdrop for your photo adventure. We’re spilling the beans on our all-time favorite spots and why each one is like a slice of Parisian magic.
If you ask our team of photographers about their favorite photoshoot locations, Montmartre will always get the most votes! Picture Paris in your mind – the cobblestone streets, charming bistros, and cafes – and you’re likely envisioning Montmartre! With the stunning Sacré-Cœur, offering a breathtaking lookout over the city, and the enchanting roads and buildings (like La Maison Rose), it is truly a magical location.
Number two on our list is an Eiffel Location, because of course we had to add in ONE Eiffel Tower recommendation for you. For all our other Eiffel Tower location ideas, you can check out this blog post.
But Pont Bir-Hakeim is our favourite. It’s great on a rainy day, If you’re after that timeless, romantic vibe, Pont Bir-Hakeim is where it’s at. The iron arches, the Eiffel Tower peeking through – it’s a scene straight out of a love story. Whether it’s the soft glow of sunrise or the golden hues of sunset, every shot here is a love letter to Paris.
The Seine River offers a timeless backdrop for classically French photos. Whether you prefer the charm near the Eiffel Tower or a more secluded setting around Notre Dame and Île Saint-Louis, we have captivating spots to explore. With iconic bridges enhancing each shot, your photos will capture Parisian elegance set against centuries-old stories—a picturesque stroll through time with your camera.
Palais Royale is undoubtedly another favorite location for our team, thanks to its endless possibilities! The black and white columns offer creative posing ideas, making it ideal for family shoots. The stunning gardens and timeless architecture beautifully showcase the enduring charm of Paris.
The Tuileries Garden is an excellent location to infuse vibrant colors into your Paris photoshoot. With the majestic Louvre as a backdrop, it offers a perfect blend of garden ambiance and Parisian architecture for your shots. Imagine picturesque flower beds, tranquil ponds, and tree-lined paths—a perfect setting to capture genuine smiles amidst the beauty of nature.
The Luxembourg Gardens holds a special place in our team’s heart as an ideal Parisian photoshoot location. The Medici Fountain within is absolutely stunning. The flower beds change colour to match each new season, whether it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter, the Luxembourg Gardens never fails to bring that unique charm. It’s like Paris saying, “Hey, let’s make your photos as iconic as this city!”
The iconic Louvre and the glass pyramids make for a very dreamy photoshoot. We recommend sunrise shoots at the Louvre to avoid massive crowds of people. Or a night time shoot there is always fun! Who knows, maybe you’ll run into Assane Diop – it definitely gives a Lupin vibe!
For those who want their photos to scream elegance, Pont Alexandre III is the bridge to choose. Golden lampposts, intricate sculptures, and a view of the Grand Palais – it’s like stepping into a royal affair. Your photos will be the epitome of sophistication and romance.
For a touch of old-school Parisian charm, head to Place des Vosges. Red-brick facades, changing gardens – it’s a blend of intimacy and grandeur. This is one of our less common spots, but every shoot we’ve done here we just love!!
Each spot we’ve recommended has its own unique magic, just waiting to complement your style and story. Whether you’re drawn to the historic allure of the Seine or the boho-chic vibes of Montmartre, Paris is ready to be your canvas. Let’s make some magic together! 🌟📸
