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.
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!
Greg contacted us yesterday to help organize a surprise picnic overlooking the Eiffel tower. He proposed to his long time girl friend Amy… who was overjoyed and a little surprised. They enjoyed our “Léon picnic” with a bottle of champagne, strawberries for dessert and a couple of “Eclair au chocolat” that we picked up on rue Montorgueil. Special treat for a special occasion & not to forget a mini photo session with Olivier around the trocadero to celebrate this very special time in their life.
It is such a treat for us to be able to share our love for picnics with clients flying to Paris from all over the world to enjoy our amazing city. Greg and Amy are Australians and live in Sydney. They are touring europe for a month and stopped over in Paris for a few days. They will be getting married in Australia next year. Olivier started his photographic career working for the “Sydney Morning Hearald” over 20 years ago! That creates a special bound I guess! They had a wonderful time both with their picnic and their photographer. Amy & Greg suggested we come to Sydney for the wedding as Olivier was telling them that it was in Australia that he photographed is first wedding on the beach!
Olivier is a wonderful photographer. We propose some top of the notch portrait photography with one of the most talented and sweetest photographer in town. You can see some of Olivier’s private portraits on his website. Amy & Greg proposal photo session was sent out to them via “Wetransfer” yesterday. We have just received this little note from Greg :
” Thank you so much for everything you and your wife organised today, everything was perfect.
The photos look amazing & we are so glad we have met you.
Thank you!!! “
Extra sweet of them … We are heading to the Trocadero for another surprise picnic set up & a photo session this morning. So stay tune for some more exiting photography in Paris.
We planned a secret proposal + one of our gourmet picnic for Kunj and Saloni.
Kunj and Saloni’s story is certainly special. These two met when they were just kids and reconnected many years later. Saloni and two of her closest friends planned this trip months ago, but little did she know how it would end. With the help of Saloni’s little sister, Aneri, and Saloni’s friends, Kunj was able to plan a very special proposal with the help of “Love Picnic Paris” at the Trocadero Fountain with breathtaking views of the Eiffel Tower.
We organised their secret proposal, photographed by Olivier who captured this priceless surprise beautifully! This Paris proposal was one for the books ❤️ . Kunj and Saloni’s had one of our gourmet picnic later on at the gardens of the Trocadero. They enjoyed the rest of their day in privacy, below a gorgeous cherry tree all in bloom, looking at the many stars in a beautiful Parisian sky.
Spring has arrived in Paris. We are hoping to organise many other surprise proposal through out the summer for our dear clients. It is such a beautiful feeling to make our client’s dream come true. What more romantic then a surprise proposal in Paris with the Eiffel tower in the background & watching the sun going down, enjoying one of our gourmet wicker picnic basket at the foot of the Eiffel tower.
“I just had my dream proposal that I would have never dreamt of happening in a million years. Luckily Olivier from “Love Picnic Paris” was there to capture every moment from the beginning to the end + we had the most amazing picnic overlooking the Eiffel tower early evening. I was living in a dream for a few hours and also in complete shock and flustered as I realised the love of my life flew to Paris, the city of romance, to surprise me with a beautiful ring. I never thought in a million year that we were going to meet in Paris and that he was going to propose!!
So naturally posing and taking the right pictures to commemorate this big moment was not on my mind, but Olivier directed us perfectly to get the shots that were timeless and elegant. My fiance and I are ecstatic about the pictures and his talented photography, and can’t wait to perhaps work with him again in the future!! Thanks Olivier for the fun photo shoot and the beautiful pictures to capture the beginning of our future together!! :)” and Thank you to “Love Picnic Picnic” for preparing the afternoon for us and setting up such a delightful surprise picnic. It was a wonderful idea & we had an amazing time in Paris thanks to you guys!”
