    From our clients:
    "We eloped in Paris earlier this month and choosing Olivier as our photographer was the best decision we made. Our photos and video were absolutely amazing! We are both camera shy, but thankfully he guided us through the day and somehow made the end product look so natural and effortless. He also had the photos & video back to us within the same week! Is that even possible? Needless to say, our expectations were met a million times over. Thank you!!!"

    "Olivier photographed our wedding on September 5, 2016. It was the most magical experience of our lives. He knew exactly where to take us and avoided many of the "typical paris" sites which was great because our photos will truly capture what Paris is all about. He was very accommodating and generous with his time. We even had a little rain at the end of our time with him, but it turned into so much fun. I am so grateful to him for capturing such beautiful photos because it is a day that will live on forever through these pictures. The photos are simply gorgeous! One day when we return to Paris with our family I hope to take more photos with him!
    Thank you for everything. You exceeded my expectations! "

On a very cold winter afternoon, two lovely birds decided to have their pre-wedding photo session in the streets of Paris.
Pamela had to surprise Anthony who (so he said was extremely camera shy!) – It doesn’t show much in the final result.
Pamela had requested a fun and laid back photo tour with only black and white photographs.
They looked so happy together, it was a lot of fun walking the streets of Paris with the two of them for three hours. I actually loved the idea of producing a complete set of black and white photographs. We see a lot of color these days but I think that was a wonderful idea. The final photos have quite a documentary style and they fit perfectly the beauty of the city and the fun moments that we had together.

Overall quite classic I think! Here a few more photo stories if you are interested to see more of my work and are looking at booking a photographer for a Paris photo session in the coming months.

Sandy and Edward will be getting married in Hong-Kong this summer! They flew to Paris for a few days late september. Edward had contacted me via a friend, who i photographed a few years ago with his  girlfriend. It is always very sweet of past clients to pass on my contact info in Paris, even nicer when it was over 4 years that I spend an afternoon with them touring the streets of Paris. In a way, it is quite a unique experience to contract a professional photographer for a few hours in Paris to document one’s love for each other with this beautiful city in the background. It is always a lot of fun to take a couple around town for some engagement or a pre-wedding photo session.

Sometimes I am even asked to capture a proposal in the city. It is always quite moving to experience first hand, this very special moment when a man propose to his future wife. My dear clients may be bankers, lawyers, doctors, they are always quite tense, insecure when the moment comes to open a little box with an engagement ring and ask: “Do you want to marry me?”
Always quite moving actually … a few tears later, some laughters! And off we start our photo session. It is wonderful to share this very special moment with a couple. It certainly creates a special bound and often a sudden friendship. Sometime you even get to travel the world a few months later to photograph your new friends wedding.

I have so many great memories of couples i met in Paris over a private photo tour + you get to meet interesting couples with such different stories, flying from all over the world to the city of love which, most of the time they had never been before! I can just imagine the excitement.

Certainly spring and summer are quite popular times to have a photo tour in Paris. The days are getting longer, as are the opening times of museums, terraces of cafés are getting filled with tourists and Parisians alike. You may think that those months are the perfect time of the year to have a photo session in the most romantic place in the world. There is not a best time or best places in Paris to propose actually or to have your engagement photo session. Paris is simply beautiful all year long, regardless of the season.

It is true, the Eiffel tower is such an iconic location, you may want to have this grand monument in the background for your proposal. (We will easily organise that for you) … And if it rains a bit, we can shelter to one of the many cafés around for a hot chocolate for a while. There is no real rush after all. (I am often asked), what do we do if it rains; no worries, i’ll have an umbrella which we can use as a prop, and in any case we will make this moment memorable and fun.

A lot of my clients would tend to propose at the Eiffel tower early morning, then have a photo session for a few hours. It is true that a sunrise session is quite perfect and for the right reason since it offers some of the most flattering light and is the only opportunity to capture popular iconic Parisian backdrops largely empty of tourists (e.g. Eiffel Tower, Louvre, etc.). If you are early birds, perfect! Me too …
We also love the night time when Paris is most romantic … and of course the magical transition to darkness, or so-called twilight; typically the first 20-25 minutes after official sunset. It is always good to check on a sunrise and sunset time prior to a photo shoot by the way.

Please note that the sunrise and sunset sessions require a minimum booking commitment of 2 hours. While we also propose shorter photo session, “mid-morning specials” around the Eiffel Tower or the Louvres from 30mn to one hour, we would suggest you consider a longer photo session, which simply allows for greater creativity, more fun and of course a larger selection of gorgeous photographs. It does take a little while to get used to having your portrait taken. Past the first 1/2, you will feel like a rockstar once i have taught you a few of my secrets!
The ultimate experience would be to book two hours in the morning and the same for the evening this way we can play with some beautiful light. Sunrise, daytime, evening or a combination of both, everything is of course possible in Paris. We could combine a morning photo session followed by an afternoon shoot at Versailles which is only 45mn away from the city after all.

All to say that the possibilities are endless. Foremost, is it a lot of fun to organise an engagement photo session in town while you are visiting. If you want to surprise your love one, it is the perfect gift! Combine a photo session with a picnic at the champ de mars with “Love Picnic Paris“, and you will be in heaven sipping a glass of champagne while you enjoy the eiffel tower in the distance.

Here are a few more couple photo shoot that we have done recently with some international couples.

In any case, enjoy Paris  to the fullest. It is the most wonderful city on earth. And if you feel like having your portraits taken with your girlfriend, your wife or family member, please get in touch, i would love to assist you in making this moment quite memorable!

By the way, we have teamed up with “LOVE PICNIC PARIS” to offer great photography alongside a superbe gourmet picnic in the city.  IF you book photography and a picnic, you’ll even get a little discount from yours truly!

There is not one wedding like the next one. Traditions, cultures, style, personalities of the wedding couple & families and friends always differ. This is the real beauty of being a wedding photographer. This time I as off to Megève at the beginning of the skying season.I kept on checking the weather forecast for weeks prior to the big day! The weather had been quite mild in the Alps over christmas, well until just a few days before we were set to drive down to Megève. We did arrive in a snow storm. No need to say we were utterly exited! We had lots of snow over the three days we were in the gorgeous alps! We even managed to borrow some skies on our last day. Elisa and Morgan’s wedding was a wonderful experience. We had a blast really, hanging out with the nicest people. It did not stop snowing over the three days we were there. Great memories of the perfect all white wedding.PINTHIS

Pre-wedding photo session of Wen and K.C in Paris this past week-end. Wen had contacted me for some fun & stylish pre-wedding portraits as she was planning her trip to Paris a little while back. She had one requirement which was being able to see the Eiffel tower in some of the photographs. So we met early morning, on a saturday to skip the afternoon crowd and started our photo tour at the Champs de Mars. The weather was perfect, quite warm actually for the season and not a drop of rain in sight. No need to say that if rain had occurred, we did have a plan and a gorgeous umbrella at hand.

We spent a little while at the Champs de Mars; I noticed a kids playground and thought it might be a nice idea to have the two of them playing a little bit on the site with an adorable princess’s castle.
Uber took us from one location to the next; first the Bir Hakeim bridge which is minutes away from the Eiffel tower. We then headed towards the Seine, place de la Concorde, the Tuilerie gardens and to Louvre to finish the morning with.
The photo session took us three hours to complete. It is a lot of fun to take a couple around Paris for a few hours for some romantic photograph. So much fun actually, that it is always tempting to carry on for a few more hours. The streets of Paris are after all the perfect setting for your pre-wedding or an engagement photo session. I find from experience that three hours is quite perfect to have a wonderful serie of photographs before it is time to just sit down, relax and have a drink!
Below you will find a few more pre-wedding and engagement photo tour that i have organized with various couples this year. As a photographer, it is quite an exiting challenge to come up with a large serie of creative photographs that show the love of a man and a woman within those three hours. Time flies, my couples are not always used to have their portraits taken and might be a little camera shy at first.
A good pre-wedding photographer has to be creative. Every couple is different, it is important to quickly establish a relationship so that you can relax and have fun in front of the camera.
In any case, enjoy this serie of photographs below that i had a lot of fun producing. If you are interested to see a larger portfolio of pre wedding and engagement portraits, you can go to our engagement portfolio on our website or browse any of the galleries below.

Unforgettable wedding reception at the National Opera Garnier. The dream of Marie and James came true when they married at the Eglise sainte Clotilde in Paris, followed by a big bash the Opéra Garnier Franco-Brazilian style with a dash of Britishness. Friends and family flew from all over the world. Marie’s family from Brazil, James family from the UK and friends from the U.S and all over Europe gathered for this memorable week end in Paris. I shared a few photos from their Paris wedding ceremony a few days past, here more visuals from a very stylish, glamorous and very fun evening. The national opera staircase was all decorated with very colorful, bright red, yellow, green paper cut flowers. A Brazilian Samba group of musicians and dancers were leading the night away from cocktail hour to the cutting of the cake. The national opera is such a prestigious background for Marie and James wedding adventure. The photographs are gorgeous, full of life and energy. It was a lot of fun being part of this wonderful affair in such a grand historical location.

Congratulation to the newly weds.
