Best places for a photoshoot in Paris


            Avenue de Camoens

Avenue de Camoens has an amazing Eiffel Tower view without the huge crowds! The location is equipped with a picturesque Parisian street with a balcony overlooking the Eiffel Tower. You can watch the amazing buildings built as per the famous Parisian Haussmann style and romantic lamp post. If you are looking for the best place to get your pictures with the Eiffel Tower view - I definitely recommend this spot!


           Canal St. Martin

This is such a charming location for a photoshoot - and actually not far from where I live! Many local artists and foodies hang out here because the streets are filled with both! You can enjoy the calm weather, long bridges, shopping, food, and drink. The place amazing for a photoshoot because it gives a vibrant and unique view of Paris in your photos.


            Alexandre Pont III

The Alexandre Pont III in Paris is considered as one of the most grandiose, extravagant places in Paris; the bridge is built over the Seine river. This is one of the most charming river crossing bridges in the world that makes you feel like you’re right in a movie! In fact, a lot of filmmakers visit this place to film! My personal favorite is from Midnight in Paris - walking over this bridge is so romantic!


        Petit Palais

This beautiful entry of an art museum gives you the look and feel of a palace. Here, multiple wedding couples visit to shoot their prewedding wedding pictures with their families and friends with the help of me, your Paris Elopement Photographer. I loved shooting some first look photos here - and in fact it’s covered so if there’s rain then it’s ok! If you want to make your friends jealous with some royal pics, then come here!


           Galleries Lafayette Rooftop

This is one of the best places in Paris where you could get amazing rooftop views. The place is located on Boulevard Haussmann, which is not so far from the Paris Opera house. Galleries Lafayette itself is a floor space of approximately 70,000m² of luxury shopping! If you want to have a fabulous day of shopping and photographing on this amazing rooftop, you must come here! 


             Musée de Cluny

One of the oldest Medieval buildings in Paris where you can experience the history of Paris and get some truly unique photos! The amazing infrastructure make this place outstanding for a photoshoot. And it’s right by the Seine river too! I love this spot!


             Parc des Sceaux

This place is just 20 minutes away from the metro outside of Paris. It features a beautiful castle and if you’re visiting in April - there are Japanese cherry blossoms that are just extraordinary!! This is a must-see!
