PARIS SECRET PROPOSAL WITH AMIT + NISHA
We have been communication with Amit all the way to Australia to help him plan a surprise proposal for his beautiful girlfriend. The last couple of days were a bit unseasy. We were checking the weather forecast every couple of hours also to try to figure out whether we should push the time or postpone to the next day all together! After two days of continuous rain, I guess we all got luchy. Our client managed to propose to Nisha with the Eiffel tower in the background as planned!
They enjoyed one of our picnic with a bottle of champagne. Olivier snapped a few photographs of the actual proposal as well as a few portraits around the Trocadero. We had a little bit of rain for a few minutes as they were finishing their lunch. A good excuse to take the umbrella out and take a few lovely photographs.
It sometimes rains in Paris which for picnics is not the ideal. For photographs, I would suggest an elegant umbrella which ends up being used as a prop. It always work beautifully, and if the rain gets heavy there is always the terrace of a cafe to shelter at until it stops. This way you can enjoy a little break as well with a delicious hot chocolate or a cup of tea.
Anthony + Isabel at the Trocadero gardens.
Anthony had contacted us to help organize his secret proposal to his long time girlfriend Isabel. We organised a picnic for them overlooking the Eiffel tower and Olivier was present to photograph the secret proposal and take a few portraits of the two of them around this gorgeous location.
Both Antony and Isabel left a very sweet review on our new Yelp page for “Love Picnic Paris”. Here is part of Anthony’s review: “For my proposal to my girlfriend, now fiancé, Paris was the perfect location as it is the city of lights with a long history of romance and elegance. I wanted to surprise my fiancé with a surprise picnic on front of the Eiffel Tower. And that’s exactly what Love Picnic Paris delivered!…”
If you are considering having us organize your secret proposal in Paris or a picnic combined with an engagement photo session around the Eiffel tower, you might want to go to our Yelp professional page to read the whole review from the two of them!
Andreia and Julien photographed by Olivier during their engagement picnic at the gardens of the Trocadero in Paris. You can tell that they had a wonderful time during their romantic lunch + engagement photo session yesterday. The weather is simply gorgeous in Paris at the moment. It is the perfect time to enjoy one of our gourmet picnic with family and your loved ones!
Looking at those photographs, I am considering to prepare a picnic for ourselves this week end and take off to Versailles for the afternoon. We might just exceptionally be closed on sunday!
I am so jealous of our clients right now and I want to do exactly the same. Those two look so happy together and we are so glad that they had a wonderful afternoon with us in Paris. The photos of their engagement are gorgeous. They are full of life and all natural. They simply look very happy and had a great time in front of Olivier’s camera thanks to his goofiness and wonderful sense of humour. Olivier knows exactly how to make people relax and have fun. It is such a pleasure looking at this serie this morning.
Andreia and Julian enjoyed our “Léon Picnic” late afternoon on the grass of the trocadero. Olivier took them around the Trocadero for a mini photo session once the picnic was over. Our mini photo session lasts half an hour and includes 15 beautifully retouched photographs in high definition ready to print and frame on your wall. Olivier somehow finished quite late last night! I heard they had such a good time that he got carried away with chatting and photography! As a result, they are so many gorgeous portraits of our Brazilian couple with the Eiffel tower in the background.
I am terrible at editing photographs myself and wouldn’t know how to choose. They all look stunning really.
I am so glad we were part of our couple happiness in Paris with our gourmet picnic and the photographs taken by Olivier that I am sure they will cherish for a very long time.
What’s more exciting then a romantic picnic overlooking the Eiffel tower with your lover in Paris! The days are just beautiful in Paris at the moment. The city is quite peaceful. Most Parisians are still vacationing in the south. It is certainly one of my favorite time of the year to be in Paris. What a wonderful summer we have had!
Monica had contacted us to order a surprise wicker basket gourmet picnic to celebrate her first trip in France. We set up our “Leon Picnic” & a one hour romantic photo session around the Trocadero for them as well ( They originally planned on a mini photo shoot which turned out to be too much fun and too short for their liking! ) . We actually showed some of the photos to some French friends we met up with last night. They thought the whole idea was simply brillant and decided to book “Love Picnic Paris” for an extravagant end of summer picnic at Versailles! And of course we couldn’t refuse such a fun outing. We are now considering proposing engagement & secret proposal & our gourmet picnics at the gardens of Versailles. It is very nice to get such wonderful feed back from everyone we meet. It is a wonderful feeling to create happiness in People’s life with some simple pleasure such as a Traditional wicker picnic basket delivered at the Eiffel tower.
What’s more exciting then relaxing on the grass overlooking the Eiffel tower with your loved one, enjoying a traditional French Picnic served with a nice bottle of Bordeaux then walking around with a fun & professional and creative photographer taking some romantic photographs with the Eiffel tower in the background. What a treat really, only in Paris!
A couple of important things to remember: We need you to place your picnic order a minimum of 24 hours prior to your big day. Our gourmet picnics take time to prepare & we cannot satisfy the last minute orders. We only do one picnic at Lunch time and one in the evening and dates get booked very quickly so again reserve your date in advance so that you wont be disappointed. And last, although we do offer mini photo session, our photographer Olivier suggests that you invest in one hour photo session if possible. Half hour of photography flies, it is a lot of fun to do & it is really worth the investment to stretch it to a whole hour if you can afford it of course!
You can view some of Olivier’s professional photographic work on his website by the way.
We had the pleasure to prepare and set up our Edith Piaf picnic at the gardens of the Trocadero for a lovely couple from Los Angeles. Ali proposed to his girlfriend very early morning at the Trocadero overlooking the Eiffel tower. Olivier captured their secret proposal and by 7am they were finally officially engaged! The three of them went around the city for a couple of hours so that Olivier could take their engagement photos with beautiful Paris in the background. They then drove back to their hotel to refresh and headed out again to the gardens of the Trocadero where their wicker picnic basket with a lot of goodies inside was waiting for them. They had champagne to start their lunch with foie gras, smoked salmon and French cottage cheese, Roast chicked & Ratatouille and mash potatoes, macarons and gourmet chocolate for desert!
Olivier dropped by again to photograph their picnic adventure. You will see a few photographs of their picnic at the end of this post. Lovely day in Paris, beautiful weather, we are getting ready for a few more picnics this week. We will be meeting new people and making new friends. Hope to see you as well over one of our delightful picnic at the Eiffel tower!
