We have delivered our first picnic this past week end at the Trocadero gardens for a family visiting Paris from Australia! At the same time they decided to organize a one hour photo session with their gorgeous little man!
We are so excited at the idea of meeting new friends from all over the world this forthcoming summer! Already we have a few bookings for the forthcoming months both for picnics and gorgeous photography in the streets of this romantic city of ours! Olivier has posted the photos from this week end on his website portrait page already. Please visit, enjoy and get back to us for your spring or summer booking. Our doors are wide open, and we cannot wait to meet every one.
While our picnic season is slowing down, we are still taking couple and families around the city for some lifestyle photography. I photographed Fred and Muriel this morning who flew all the way from Washington DC to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. This afternoon, I headed to the Luxembourg gardens for Lisa and Robert engagement photo session. The fall is a beautiful time of the year to wander the streets of Paris. I had a good looking umbrella with me just in case of a few drops so that the rain wouldn’t stop us from snapping away some interesting lifestyle images with gorgeous Paris in the background. I hope you guys enjoy those few photographs and if you are planning a trip to Paris in the forthcoming christmas season we will be in town so do not hesitate to reach out to us we would be glad to assist you if we can.
We actually enjoy a picnic in the fall ourselves with some hot chocolate and a warm blanket.It is a wonderful way to resource ourselves, enjoy a unique experience with your loved one in this beautiful city of ours. We have decided to cater for gourmet picnics this winter season as well. We would be serving our picnics at the place Dauphine and around the Pont Neuf over lunch time only. If you would like to take on the adventure with your loved one on the edge of the river seine, looking at the boats passing by or sitting at one of the most beautiful hidden square of the capital, reach out to “Love Picnic Paris“, we will set up your surprise picnic basket with all of our winter season must have !
We will make sure that the experience is utterly romantic and unique. You might just have to cover yourself warmly which you would anyway. We will take care of the rest. The price for our winter picnic will be €250 for two. Contact us for some more detailed information. Our romantic winter picnics can be coupled with a photo session with Olivier as well which doubles the pleasure!
Another beautiful photo story taken by Olivier at the Trocadero gardens with Jen and Patrick. It was Jen’s birthday and their three years wedding anniversary that they celebrated with one of our picnic basket and a romantic photo session around the Eiffel tower. AGAIN I LOVE THOSE PHOTOGRAPHS, they convey real happiness and the special bound that those two share with each other. The photos are fun and natural, so much that it seems that they have been snapped away by a friend! Well no, they were taken by one of the most amazing photographer that I know, who simply has mastered his craft!
Classic & Elegant & Fun and Creative are a few adjectives summing up Olivier’s photographic work! Not everyone is used to having their portraits taken, it takes dedication and experience, 150% commitment and a lot of love for his craft for a photographer to produce gorgeous images every time he takes his camera. Olivier knows how to make his clients feel at ease in front of his camera very quickly so that he can produce real lifestyle images. You may or may not order one of our gourmet picnic but if you are looking for the right photographer to document ” a day and a life ” of a family or a couple in Paris while visiting, I would really settle for the best because at the end you do see the difference and the experience will be memorable. Every day of the week, there are many photographers at the Eiffel tower taking portraits of their clients. I was there yesterday waiting for some clients and watching them interacting with their clients! It takes a real talent to come up with some gorgeous photographs and reinvent yourself every single time.
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.
Lovely review from our client : What an amazing team Olivier and Miyoko are! The surprise proposal Picnic was magnificent – from the candles to the pillows to the amazing selection of cheese, champagne and fruits, everything was perfect!! I had been in contact with both of them for several months, fine tuning small details and organizing the time and place. The best part of this experience is that Olivier and Miyoko were able to recreate the exact image I had in my head as to how I wanted the picnic to go.
Both my girlfriend (now fiancé) and I had a great time. Photos were awesome, and it was an experience we will remember forever.
Thank you guys, could not recommend you enough! 10/10!
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!
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!
We love meeting new friends flying to Paris from all over the world! This time we met the Phillips family who flew all the way from Colorado to spend a few days in Paris before hearing to London. They ordered our “Leon Picnic” with a very special strawberry birthday cake to celebrate their older son’s 18th birthday. We set up the picnic for them at the gardens of the Trocadero overlooking the eiffel tower. Olivier took a few family portraits for the occasion & everyone looked so happy & the pictures are full of life and happiness!
I love the bow ties they brought in their suitcases; I am a big fan actually, very classy for a parisian birthday outing with our gourmet picnics!
From our client: “We are home and I just downloaded all of the photos. I am so pleased and can’t thank you enough for helping us create such a wonderful memento of our special trip with our boys. Just amazing. The picnic was delicious and the whole things was just perfect. I keep thinking about the outstanding salad. It was so fresh and delicious. Does your wife share that recipe?
We enjoyed reading the story to accompany our photos. What a great experience. Our son loved his birthday cake by the way!
