Eiffel Tower Couple Pictures (how to get fun #parisengagement photos)
No backdrop is quite as iconic and instantly recognisable as the Eiffel Tower. Yet, it has been captured pretty much from every conceivable angle and time of the day. That means you and your photographer need to bring your A-game, celebrate and make things feel real. When you are having fun, the photo will follow and you will already be lightyears ahead of the more static photos we see all the time. Dress sharp, show up at sunrise, prepare well, and kiss!
Alexander III Engagement Photos (the most luxurious bride in Paris!)
So when you come to Paris for your engagement photos, there will likely be more locations than time commissioned. That means you will need to make some location choices. If you want to combine the iconic Eiffel Tower (who doesn't) with pure luxury and a more subtle vantage point, then the Alexander III Bridge is your ideal spot. Hey, and at night, the lanterns just look so romantic and so do the reflections from the Seine River. It is a MUST-PHOTOGRAPH spot for serious couples.
Eiffel Tower Photoshoot
No spot is quite as iconic as the Eiffel Tower ... and the most popular vantage point to photograph it is from Trocadero. Make sure to show up early (ideally a few minutes before sunrise) in order to beat the crowds, and be ready to hit the ground running with your Paris photographer. Now, Paris is all about style so make sure to put some thoughts in how you want to look in your photos. In general, style matters and elegant attire trumps casual wear. Celebrate and focus on each other.

Anniversary photos at the Louvre Museum Paris always look elegant. This photo was taken in the early evening shortly after sunset with an associate who held the light
Musée d'Orsay engagement photos (iconic clock!)
Musée d'Orsay engagement photos are incredibly rare since everything really needs to come together ... the right couple who is ok to invest into a few photos that take time to capture, wear dark attire, connect beautifully in silhouette, are willing to show up at the entrance right when the museum opens ... and, of course, be lucky to get a bright blue sky for perfect silhouette results.

Props for your Paris Engagement Photos (Giant Bubbles)
You don't always need an iconic backdrop such as the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, or Notre Dame when you come to Paris for your engagement photos. Quite the contrary. All you really need is to leave caution by the wayside and celebrate your relationship. We were lucky to stumble upon a street vendor near Notre Dame who created giant bubbles for us (at a cost of course). Just make sure your photographer is ready since the bubbles come and go fast and you really need to capture the excitement.
Editorial Engagement Photos Seine River (Paris)
When you have your Paris engagement photos taken, there are typically more fabulous spots than you will have time. Obviously, there would be the iconic (i.e., Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Alexander III), the romantic (Alexander III, Montmartre, Parisian Cafe), and then there are also locations just made for impact where the focus shifts on you as a couple. It can be outdoors or indoors. The important difference is that there is camera awareness as a couple and the result is frameable.
Louvre Engagement Photos during the Blue Hour
Looking for fabulously romantic Blue Hour Paris engagement photos at the Louvre Museum? Well, you're not alone. Here's the deal. Hire a talented Paris photographer who does not use flash (only continuous light sources will achieve the desired results!), show up during the summer months, when the fountains are on, and wait until about 15-20 minutes after official sunset for the sky to turn increasingly blue and vivid. Enjoy!
Tuileries Gardens Romantic Paris Engagement Photos
The Tuileries Gardens is one of our favorite spots in all of Paris and looks fabulous at any time of the year. In fact, I prefer pretty much any season where the leaves are not just plain green. Either way, you will find a host of spectacular views, including the iconic facade of the Louvre Museum, the Musée d'Orsay, Seine River, Gardens, benches, ... Just keep in mind that the ground is quite treacherous for high heels and plan with some comfy shoes in between photos.
