Two icons in one way!
Trocadéro is the best place to have Eiffel tower as background, anytime of the day.
Morning is of course the best, as it will be less crowded, and if possible I’ll call the birds.
Afternoon will give you more blue sky, and sometimes sunset colors, and much later … sparkling Eiffel tower!
From Trocadero we will take Metro to Arc de Triomphe. Don’t forget, in Paris, the traveling is the destination. Metro shoot can also be unforgetable. Just check on the results.
Arc de Triomphe, the Gate of Victory, and the most beautiful avenue in the world : Champs Élysées, no further introduction is necessary, there’s even a song for them. So many tourist come and take pictures around this 12 ways roundabout, but in reality it is not as simple as clicking the button : from where, when and from which angle make all the difference.
Then walking along the Champs Élysées gives window-shopping a different meaning altogether. I suggest to avoid the tourist area, there are more chic shops and street corners to frame. You can also get the best macaroons in Paris on the way, and why not re-enacting the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” scene.
Meet me in front of Café Kleber.
Nearest metro is Trocadero, then take exit No. 2 Kléber, which takes you exactly in front of the café.
I pick this easily identifiable spot for you so we don’t miss the rendez-vous.
Pick a date!
Which photo-session is really up to you.
To take nice pictures takes time, to enjoy the walk, and appreciate the surroundings. And it is your holiday in Paris. You’ve come all the way here, so might as well enjoy the photo session and the scenery.
And moreover, a photographer always take you to the best spots.
So here are some suggestions from previous sessions around this place :
- Trocadero + Metro + Arc de Triomphe : 1 hour
- More shoot on trocadero garden, or more coverage of Champs Élysées it’s better to take 1h30 min
- If you also want cafe shoot afterward, take 2 hours.
Many people bring balloons for photoshoot in Trocadéro, because it creates the wow effect on that wide-open space.
There are balloon-shops around paris, but if you find that complicated, I can help make things simpler for you:
After you pick the date below, you can add most common balloons in your cart, and I’ll take care of ordering it for you.
For more special balloons, it’s not possible to order it on this site, just let me know, so I’ll forward you to the proper shop that can deliver in location.
Paris is also City of Café!
Let’s pick a nicely decorated one, and hunt for that one and only spot worth fighting for.
There’s no extra-charge for café photoshoot!
Just pick enough time so you can enjoy your time. Usually I suggest around extra 30 minutes at the end of the session (or before).
It’s enough time for the walk, pick your seat, make orders, and by the time they arrive, I’ll capture plenty of your memorable memories in my memory-card.
And then I’ll leave you enjoying your café time.
