A week in beautiful Paris for John and Alissa. They enjoyed one of our picnic at the Trocadero overlooking the eiffel tower on their very first day!
Olivier our skillful photographer took them around the site for a few memory photographs. Here a few photographs of their couple photo session. They look so happy together. Great job from our photographer, fun and lively story of a couple in love in Paris.
January in Paris; the end of the year celebrations are now behind us. We would like to wish a wonderful year to each and everyone of you who have been following and supporting “Love Picnic Paris”.
We are very grateful to everyone who have reached out to us for a gourmet picnic and a lifestyle photo session in the city those past couple of years. We’ve met many lovely couples and families visiting the city from all over the world. It has been exciting to be able to share our love for the city with so many of you!
We have prepared many gourmet picnics to cater for friends and families, small and larger groups. We have planned many secret proposals around Paris this past year as well. “Love Picnic Paris” is now getting new bookings for the spring season for both gourmet picnics and creative photography with Olivier. We cannot wait to meet all of you in Paris again this year.
Love Picnic Paris started with the desire to share our passion for our city; enjoying a gourmet picnic with friends and family. Olivier happens to be a very talented portrait photographer. We wanted to propose a unique service where clients would enjoy a relaxing moment at one of Paris beautiful park. Make it a lunchtime delightful picnic experience and have the opportunity to have a creative & unique photo session with a very talented professional at the same time ( my partner in crime! ). This was the original idea behind “Love Picnic Paris”
Paris secret proposal
The weather is incredibly warm for the season at the moment! Not sure it is a good thing by the way, but this is another topic. We assisted Joe this past week preparing for his Paris secret proposal at the eiffel tower. There is no season for LOVE, anything is possible in Paris.
Joe ordered our “Edith Piaf” gourmet picnic at the Trocadero gardens including one hour photo session with Olivier once our couple had enjoyed their lunch and cracked open the bottle of champagne.
The Trocadero area is great for photos. It is located on a hill overlooking the seine and the eiffel tower which you can admire in the distance. It is an amazing view point for photography. Although it can get a little crowded at time, the trocadero area is definitely a prime location for some great photography with the Eiffel tower and the city scape.
We are now starting to take bookings for the spring season. We have had a few couples contacting us to plan their surprise gourmet picnic already. A few of you have reserved their date for their forthcoming secret proposal too. We are now proposing picnics and photography in the gardens of Versailles this year as well.
First steps in planning a secret proposal with Love Picnic Paris.
We have created a new secret proposal information page to our Love picnic Paris website. We now combine our surprise gourmet picnic adventures with different photography packages around the city. If you are considering proposing to your love one while visiting Paris, it might be a good idea to go through the page.

So you are more then welcome to reach out for more details, we would be so glad to be part of your special day.
Meanwhile enjoy the few engagement photographs with Joe and Ella’s engagement photo session, taken in Paris recently with Olivier. If interested in a private photography session while visiting the city, I would suggest that you go to Olivier’s website to get familiar with his style of photography.
Alternatively you can go to our gallery page where you will find a selection of photographs taken with Olivier those past couple of years with Love Picnic Paris. I have just gone through the slideshow myself. It brought a tear to my eyes looking at all of this love and happy faces!
A romantic gourmet picnic in the fall with a creative photo session with our photographer.
There is no season for romance in Paris. It is always the perfect time to enjoy the city of light when you are in love. There is no special time for a gourmet picnic either along the banks of the seine. Although picnics are considered a summer activity, we are preparing a gourmet picnic for the fall and winter season.
WHY? Simply because we, as a couple enjoy escaping for an afternoon with one of our picnic along the seine even if it is a bit chilly! It doen’t matter really … You are well covered, hat, scarves to enhance the experience!
What matters is experiencing a unique moment with your love one, a special afternoon just for the two of you. This is what we would like to share with our clients at love Picnic Paris. We will include a hot soup, hot tea, some cheese, cured meat and some delightful surprises in our winter picnics. We would set up one of our wicker basket with a blanket at one of our favorite location in the city for you to enjoy.
We want our gourmet picnics to be the special romantic paris experience that we ourselves enjoy together! Love is about sharing, our picnics are a way to pass on our love for the city and the love we have for each other.
We will make our winter picnic a unique delightful surprise to your partner while visiting the city! Paris is fun all year long, the days get shorter, but the love and quality of life is everlasting. Our winter gourmet picnics will be the perfect occasion to celebrate an engagement, a secret proposal to your girlfriend but also a romantic lovers outing before going to see a play or a musical concert in Saint Germain des Prés.
The menu will be finalized shortly. We will be posting in our blog this new venture in more details very soon. If you are planning a trip to the city in the next few months, you can already reach out to us to book your date or simply get some more information as to how we could assist you with a romantic afternoon.
“Love and Happiness”; I was listening to this gorgeous song from Al Green looking at some of the photographs that Olivier took at the Trocadero gardens on a lovely afternoon. Mehmet proposed to his girlfriend at the gardens of the trocadero a few days back. A little curious crowd gathered as he was kneeling down to propose and clapped for the finale kiss. We organized our edith Piaf picnic for them coupled with a violonist who played a few romantic tunes, a seasonal bouquet of flowers and some great photos from the best photographer in town! Oh I forgot champagne was flowing at Mehmet and Efie engagement.
David contacted us a while ago to organize a gourmet picnic for his secret proposal to his girlfriend Tiffany. I think the images speak for themselves. They had a wonderful time at the gardens of the trocadero overlooking the eiffel tower. The proposal was a total success. We had organized our Edith Piaf picnic for the occasion with a chilled bottle of champagne and a poenies bouquet.
Olivier took some photos discretely from the distance during the proposal. They enjoyed their picnic and had a photo session around the trocadero afterwards.
Beautiful afternoon in Paris, we wish them both a wonderful vacation in europe before heading back to Australia and a beautiful life together. Our Edith Piaf gourmet picnic is the perfect romantic outing to propose to your girlfriend in front of the Eiffel tower. We actually have different packages that can be customized with various photography sessions. You will find various prices on our Paris secret proposal page.
Do not hesitate to get back to us with an email if you have any question that come to your mind. We will explain to you exactly how we can assist you in making this moment unique and unforgettable.
We are so glad that our gourmet picnic / Secret proposal and a photo session with Olivier are getting to be quite popular. It shows that Paris is definitely “the place” to propose to your love one! 100% success guarantee so far.
Enjoy this serie of photographs taken with one of dear couple at the trocadero a few days back.
Here a few words we have received from our clients :
I want to thank you both for making my surprise proposal to mygirlfriend (now my fiancee) a fantastic experience and the most memorable day ever. From the first contact they were so helpful in assisting to plan the event and come with many suggestions that made the day even more memorable for us. The picnic set up and food was fantastic, location was perfect and they even made sure the rain stopped in the afternoon so we could have our picnic outside as planned :-). Oliver took pictures of us when I proposed and captured “A perfect moment” that we will cherish for ever. He continued to take pictures during our picnic and then also came back after for an additional photo shoot which I strongly recommend you take if you book “Love Picnic Paris” which I absolutely recommend! The pictures we received after just a few days are the best and Oliver is excellent in setting up the right poses and settings for the best pictures. If you are planning a surprise picnic/event/photo shoot I hope you use “Love Picnic Paris”, you will not be disappointed and will have a memory for a lifetime. Once again thank you for “A Best Day”!
SWEET, we are so glad we were able to make it all happen for them.
We prepared a Vegan gourmet picnic for Marthy and Meg a few days ago at the gardens of the Louvre. Marthy had reached out to us to ask whether we could possibly arrange for a vegan picnic for his surprise proposal. WE said ” YES” why not! Not being fluent in the art of preparing a vegan picnic, we went around town to a few vegan stores and discovered how this trend is quickly developing in the city with vegan bakeries, restaurant and food stores as well as a cool tea shop on rue Voltaire in the 11th where we purchased a selection of vegan cakes which we of course had to try ourselves. AND yes happily surprised we were after all. Below a few of the photographs taken by Olivier during the proposal. They looked so happy together, the photos are gorgeous and they enjoyed their vegan picnic.
It started raining towards the end of the picnic so Olivier rushed to the car and grabbed a couple of umbrellas which he dropped off to them. He snapped a photo with his iphone as he was leaving. So cool …. The rain did not stop them from enjoying their gorgeous evening in the city of love!
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!
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.
