  • What's your approach to Paris photoshoots and luxury weddings?

    For Paris photoshoots, our hands-on approach with confident communication (in English) ensures that you’ll quickly connect with your partner and be comfortable displaying intimacy and fun-factor in front of our lens. Our interests and yours are in harmony in that we, too, want a shoot that is fun, flows naturally, and results in fabulous photographs.

    Our wedding work is synonymous with excellence and continues to inspire a new generation of photographers. Beyond the quality of our award-winning photos, however, what sets us apart is that we deeply care about our couples and are immersed in our environment on the wedding day. Our approach to capturing weddings emphasizes professional discretion, experience, and endless passion; the idea is to support the flow of your festivities and tell your story the way you remember feeling it.

  • How do I get my photos published on your website, social media, or on a wedding blog?

    Well, there’s no clear answer here since we do way more Paris photo shoots every year than we have the capacity to publish. With that said, we’ll never post photos without your consent.

    If you do want to increase your chances of getting featured on our website and social media or on a popular bridal blog, here are a few power tips:

    • don’t be shy to ask us
    • prepare exceptionally well and communicate your expectations, style, and shoot inspiration with a vision card or so-called mood board via Pinterest
    • be different—bridal publications (and we, too) like to inspire and entertain … creative props, attractive locations, stylish outfits and accessories, and a blissful connection will all make you stand out
    • be responsive and organized in providing us with your story—how you met, how your partner asked, tell us about your ring, and list your Instagram handles, …
    • after we publish your favorite photos, make sure to share your story with your friends and family, who are likely dying to hear all the fabulous details
  • How soon can I see my photos?

    You’ve probably heard nightmare stories of couples having to wait forever to see their photos. Well, not with us.

    In fact, you’ll almost certainly get to see your portrait photos within 24 hours

    When you book a Paris photoshoot with us, you’ll typically get to see your photos within 24 hours after your photo session … often even on the same day as your shoot. This is particularly exciting for once-in-a-lifetime events such as Paris proposals or elopements.

    All images from your photoshoot are conveniently accessible via an intuitive, private, mobile-responsive proofing gallery that is easily shared with friends and family. That means you can even use your phone or iPad to view your gallery, and won’t have to wait to select your favorite photos for edit.

    Our turnaround time for luxury weddings is approximately 2-4 weeks depending on the season.

  • Will you edit my photos?

    Yes, of course! Our editors are world-class and take great pride in making your photos look magazine-worthy! We invest real time, care and resources into custom-editing your pictures according to your specific instructions. If you like the way the photos on our website are edited, then you’ll love the way we edit your photos.

    Our standard edit includes:

    • cropping for perfect composition
    • exposure, sharpness, shadows, contrast, and highlights adjustment
    • color, vibrancy, and saturation enhancements
    • camera lens profile corrections as well as horizontal and vertical image transformation to ensure that structural lines and horizons look great
    • Photoshop removal of blemishes, scars, moles, and other skin beautification
    • (optional) thinning of arms, legs, body, and chin
    • removal of distracting elements (other people, trash and structures) whenever easily possible

    Our premium edit includes:

    • everything that’s included in our standard edit
    • black & white versions of your photos (we do not simply apply a black & white filter, but instead carefully accentuate true blacks and true whites for a classic look and feel)
    • adding a flattering sky
    • removal of wallets, phones, or other objects from your pant pockets
    • smoothing and complex reshaping of wrinkles in your outfits
    • removing, reshaping, or recreating hair, including bald spots for men
  • How do you deliver my edited photos?

    All edited images will be downloadable via a private, mobile-responsive, online gallery that is easily shared with friends and family.

  • What if I want all the photos from my Paris photoshoot?

    We typically shoot hundreds of amazing images during our Paris photoshoots. And as you’ll see, sometimes it’s simply too difficult to limit yourself to the number of edits that come standard with your Collection. In fact, it’s actually quite common to want them all! Or perhaps you’re into editing your own pictures and prefer the unedited version of your images.

    Well, we have a brilliant solution for you: our premium Collections give you the option to download all the unedited high resolution and print-ready photos from your entire photo session at the click of a button. For more information, ask us.

  • What if it rains?

    We can control almost every element of your Paris photoshoot except the weather (rain, wind, cold, sky color, etc.). We will try to work around rain on short-notice and occasionally even accommodate a date or time-switch. However, we never provide a refund of your retainer or even guarantee the opportunity to reschedule.

    With that said, some of our most award-winning photos were captured in the rain—and it makes sense since rain photos are quite rare and rain has the potential to elicit deep emotional connection.

    Rain or an overcast sky actually offers several important benefits:

    • you’re less likely to squint (especially if you have sensitive eyes)
    • you won’t cast unwanted shadows on your partner
    • your skin will look flawless
    • there will likely be way fewer distracting tourists and other photographers, which means more privacy for you
    • wet surfaces can make for exceptional reflections and creative possibilities
  • What if I need to cancel or reschedule?

    We get it—life works in mysterious ways—it’s sometimes just not possible to keep your Paris photoshoot appointment. Hey, we’ve heard it all from airport disruptions and canceled flights, visa issues, strikes, health, pregnancy, job conflicts, and a host of other valid personal issues.

    Yet, as one of the busiest photography studios in the world, we’re almost always booked. It means that we turn away additional inquiries for your scheduled time-slot after you book us. As with rain disruptions, we will do our utmost to accommodate an emergency change request for you. However, we never issue a refund of your retainer under any circumstances or guarantee an alternate time slot.

  • What if I'm late for my Paris photoshoot?

    We get it—life can sometimes get in the way—especially in Paris, where your Uber driver might cancel on you at a moment’s notice, your beauty artist needs longer than anticipated, or you’re just stuck in traffic.

    With that said, just as you expect us to arrive on time, we ask that you kindly be punctual. We book multiple Paris photo shoots per day and need to make sure that we are on time, relaxed, and well-prepared for our next couple.

    The maximum amount of time we’ll contractually wait for you before you forfeit your retainer is 15 minutes from your official starting time.

    And even if we agree to start your photoshoot with a delay, we never commit to extending your coverage to account for the lost time due to late arrival.

    If you’re uncertain about Parisian traffic conditions or anticipate any delay for any reason, please plan on arriving at the designated meeting spot early.
