Where to take photos of honeymoon in Paris?
In love with the Eiffel Tower?
Let's start with the first ... You can not miss photos with the iron lady!
Luckily this famous metal sculpture is not only the most visited structure in the world, it is also, by law, the tallest building in France. Excellent news because it is visible from many places in Paris. However, here are our favourites to take post-Eiffel photos with the Eiffel Tower:
1.Photos in Trocadero
Unquestionably, dear reader, Trocadero takes the hat of the best framing for a photo session with the tower. The Trocadero esplanade is the favourite setting for films, clips like this from Zaz or advertisements like this from Jude Law for Dior Homme by Guy Ritchie. Any cinematographer will know that it is a magical place to photograph the Eiffel Tower. But ... but ... but it has a great "but" and that is that it is full of people. So for your photos, it is best to meet with our photographer early in the morning. Of course, in summer, who says early, says very early, with the singing of the birds (they do sing in the city of lights). If you have time and desire, continue to point two, you will arrive on foot ...
2. Photos at the Bir Hakeim Bridge
If you are more of staying in bed a good time and do not want to wake up with the sun, or if you come from your photos in Trocadero, the second option for a honeymoon session with the Eiffel Tower is the Bir Hakeim bridge. This viaduct is another of the most photogenic corners of Paris. You will see it in films like The Last Tango in Paris with Marlon Brando, in Inception with Leonardo Dicaprio or in music videos as John Mendes There is nothing holding me back. If you want our photographer to take you along this route, you can take home not only some pictures with the Eiffel Tower but also photos with its particular architecture.
Paris breathes history!
Now, direct to the "center" of Paris. Although the concept is quite broad, it is known that the Greco-Roman origin of Paris is in the île de la Cité. From here it was growing progressively, almost radially and for that reason, here are many of the famous monuments through the centuries that appear in the guides. We recommend two circuits.
3. Photos between palaces: Louvre and Royal Palace
If you like the great monuments and the Louvre pyramid has always caught your attention, you can do a post-wedding photo shoot in Paris, between palaces. You can start from the Pont des Arts to get to the Louvre Museum, with some images with the pyramid, its fountains, with its carved doors and lampposts so Parisian. Then, we advise you to also visit the side galleries, which are scenes very worked in stone, sublime and elegant. From here, you can walk to the Royal Palace, greeting the Kiosque des Noctambules, in the Plaza Colette. In the first area of the Palais Royal enclosure we reach the courtyard of the Pillars of Buren and then enter the large French-style garden. Do not hesitate to sit and take pictures in their stools or chairs for two, which are also for that, to rest ... and then visit and pose in front of the water fountain, its flowers and sculptures and take advantage of its lines for portraits.
4. Photos on the île de la Cité and the Saint-Louis Island
Starting from the metro Cité, origin of Paris, crossing the Market of flowers and birds, our photographic route tops the beautiful Place Dauphine, one of the most romantic places in this area. With its triangular implantation, the historical building of courts and its proximity to the Seine, will always have good light in a privileged environment. You can continue on foot along the Seine until you reach Notre Dame. We recommend you to take a break for photos both in front of and behind the Cathedral of Paris, and, above all, take advantage of photos with the cherry blossoms of Notre Dame in the spring. You can finish this photographic walk crossing to the Latin Quarter, walking through its narrow pedestrian streets that at sunset will give you a spectacular bokeh effect, and relax drinking a coffee in one of the terraces, hot even in winter.
Water is pure poetry, photos with the Seine
Oh the Seine! How many poets will have inspired their waters Photos on the Seine is always a good option, but you have to know where to make your bridges look good. Not for nothing Woody Allen chose his frames for his Midnight movie in Paris (Midnight in Paris).
5. Alexandre III Bridge
This bridge is a golden jewel, given by Russia to the city. His golden sculptures, his finely conceived lamps and the presence of the background Invalides, will make your post-wedding photos shine in a golden Paris.
6. The docks of the center of Paris.
Here it is best to start at the tip of the Vert Galant, crowned by a magnificent weeping willow that appears, for example, in this video by Taylor Swift in Paris. In a session that goes to the water you can have photos with Notre Dame, with the Hotel de Ville, and between bridges. How many loves have inscribed their names on the trees on their banks, how many kisses have been recorded in the wind between their cobbles and stone seats.
Live Paris, street life and Parisian style
But Paris is more than a monument city. It is a city that beats, that vibrates to the rhythm of its daily activities. We invite you to have a honeymoon photo session experimenting with street markets, antique markets, cafes, street art and, why not, public transport.
7. Live Montmartre
Starting from the wall of the "je t'aime" you can tour the neighborhood where Amélie Poulin was filmed, and more than one music clip. Picasso, Gris, Toulouse Lautrec, among so many other artists have left their prints engraved in this well-known neighborhood. Do not hesitate to make sessions with the new artistic codes and take advantage of the street art for novel funds.
8. Unusual Paris
There are several neighborhoods and areas different from what you are used to seeing in the photos of Paris. Take the opportunity to take photos of honeymoon in the pedestrian streets, or in some of the picturesque and unknown neighborhoods, away from tourists like the Mouzaia.
Is it too cold? Is it too hot? For it is time to enter the cafes, the museums, the covered galleries of Paris and marvel at everything the city has to offer. Not only you will discover curious things but you will have some original photos, very particular, of a different Paris but very yours. Visit the Gallerie Vivienne, the Vero-Dodat passage, or one of our favourites, the Louvre, particularly the private apartments of Napoleon III.
When to take honeymoon photos in Paris?
The moment of the year does not matter to take photos in Lutetia because the city always keeps that special aura. Any season of the year is ideal for honeymoon photos in Paris. Do you have doubts? Keep reading:
In autumn Paris is filled with delicious colors. Ocher, yellow, orange and red decorate the trees with a unique touch. The photos will have that golden and warm tone and the rays of the sun, with some drops of rain, bring wonderful reflections. Light, an important issue, is very soft in autumn. Let's see, there are many cloudy days, but these give a lot of softness to the skin, and if it is sunny, then the tones and the quality of the natural light enrich the images a lot. In addition, your photos in the autumn will allow you to change several accessories easy to transport: foulards, hat, glasses ... The more places you choose, the more accessories you could bring with you and take varied, warm and very romantic photos. And if you come with your wedding dress for a post-wedding session, talk to our photographer who will take you out of the comfort zone so that they remain spectacular and innovative.
Unless you're married in the winter, it's probably too cold for a session with your wedding dress ... at least you want to give it a really trans touch or throw yourself into an indoor session. A post-winter session in Paris in winter needs perhaps some special care because clothes will be very important. It is, however, a good opportunity to use strong coloured coats, or scarves, hats, gloves and original shoes. The best thing is to do a session that alternates the exterior spaces and the interiors so that they do not get too cold and the noses do not turn red (Rudolph the red nose reindeer style). Anyway, what can be more romantic than having a cup of steaming chocolate in the big city of lights?
They say that spring alters people ... also the veins of the city of Paris begin to flow filling the parks with flowers, bright green leaves. It is an excellent moment for pictures in the parks, full of colour and with a lot of texture. You can walk around the city without stopping. Enjoy the terraces, take photos in a cafe, ride a bicycle. The days are longer and the city is very romantic. Of course, when spring arrives the sun intensifies, so do not hesitate to call a professional photographer who knows how to take advantage of these particular tonalities.
The heat has been installed. For a photo session in Paris, in summer, you can also take advantage of all the parks, the morning walks, the monuments and streets that are emptied of the Parisians. In addition, in summer there is a whole series of things that happen in the city. Extraordinary activities such as the beach in Paris, water games, and ice cream pop-up shops throughout the city. Also take advantage of taking photos at sunset time in one of the parks that will be open 24 hours a day. And if it's too hot in Paris, take the opportunity to photograph yourself in the interiors of the city's museums.
