Ok, here’s the deal. Everywhere in Paris is freaking gorgeous.
Each area in Paris is unique and beautiful in it’s own way. The little flower shops, the cafes on every street corner, it’s all the perfect setting for a romance to unfold- and that’s the best part of having your session in Paris! You don’t need to stick strictly to one or two locations, there’s always room to wander and find a photo-worthy spot. That said, here are a few iconic spots that I love for couple’s sessions (and no, not just in front of the Eiffel Tower!)
1. The Louvre: Where Art Meets Love
The Louvre Museum is not only a treasure trove of art but also a place where love takes center stage. Inside, you can capture intimate moments amidst world-famous artworks, while outside, the iconic glass pyramid provides a modern contrast to the historical surroundings. Whether you're strolling hand in hand through the sculpture gardens or stealing a kiss by the pyramid, the Louvre offers endless possibilities for romantic shots- and a GREAT choice if the weather is less than ideal!
2. Parc Monceau: A Hidden Gem of Romance
Tucked away in the 8th arrondissement, Parc Monceau is a hidden gem that feels like a secret garden. Its lush greenery, charming bridges, and classical statues create a dreamy atmosphere for couples. The elegant park exudes a sense of tranquility that is perfect for capturing candid moments of connection and love.
3. Tuileries Garden: A Royal Romance
The Tuileries Garden, located between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde, is a royal setting for your photoshoot. Its symmetrical layout, fountains, and perfectly manicured hedges evoke the grandeur of Versailles. Stroll along the tree-lined promenades, and you'll find plenty of romantic spots to steal a kiss or share an embrace, making this garden a timeless choice for couples in love.
4. Montmartre: The Bohemian Love Story
Montmartre, with its cobblestone streets and artistic history, is a neighborhood that oozes romance. The iconic Sacré-Cœur Basilica offers breathtaking panoramic views of the city, and the charming cafes and vine-covered walls make for enchanting photos. Montmartre's bohemian spirit and vibrant street art provide a unique and artistic backdrop for capturing your love story. Best enjoyed in autumn with a hot cup of mulled wine!
5. The Seine: Something Blue
Along the Seine, you’ll find backdrops of stunning bridges, little boats, and of course the Eiffel Tower. This is the perfect spot for a stroll on a summer day with your sweetheart.
As a photographer in this stunning city, I consider myself fortunate to have such incredible locations available to shoot! Paris is waiting to frame your love story in the most enchanting way possible, so make sure to get in touch if you want to start planning your session!
