Paris picnic and a couple photo session.
Indian summer in Paris!
We have had a gorgeous month and october is even more beautiful … You are in the city with the intention to propose to your girlfriend, or simply visiting with your love one … You are looking for something unique to do, something utterly romantic! Well, it is the perfect time to enjoy one of our gourmet picnic and a couple photo session at the Eiffel tower, just like Ashley and Kent did yesterday. They flew from California; first time in Paris, a gourmet picnic overlooking the eiffel tower is a wonderful Parisian experience. Ashley had contacted us a while back to arrange for our “Leon picnic ” and a photo session with Olivier.
We set up their picnic at the Trocadero gardens so that when they arrived at the location, all they had to do was open the bottle of wine & enjoy this special moment. Olivier met up with them an hour later for their couple photo session. They had booked a mini photo session with us to complement their romantic afternoon.
Below a few of the photos taken around the Trocadero area with the magnificent Eiffel tower in the background. We are often asked for recommendations on what to do, where to go while in Paris! It is always difficult to answer, the city having such a rich cultural heritage. One thing though, if you are going to enjoy one of our gourmet picnic and a photo session with Love Picnic Paris make sure you get some tickets to go up the Eiffel tower. It is a mesmerizing experience in itself. The first time I went up to the top, I was with my parents and probably around 8 year old. I still remember the day …
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.

Below a few photographs taken at the Trocadero with Carmen, Lee and the kids. They had just arrived in Paris the day before. Ivana, their little girl was still a little tired from their travel. We have had a beautiful weather in Paris this season. An afternoon at the park with a gourmet picnic and a family photo session to follow was just perfect! They had visited the Eiffel tower in the morning. It was time to relax and chill on the grass with a lovely lunch served in one of our wicker basket.
Enjoy those few family portraits taken by Olivier.
Why not celebrating your Paris trip with “Love Picnic Paris”. Have a gourmet picnic with us, combine with an engagement photo session with Olivier, our professional photographer! Sounded like a great idea to J+M who flew all the way from Passadena to spend a few days in Paris before heading to Brussels and the south of France for their summer vacation.
You have chosen your engagement ring, you have booked your trip to Paris. Only it is your first time in France, you would like everything to be perfect for this very special day. You are not sure how to start though!
Over the past couple of years, we have helped many couple celebrate their Paris engagement in a flawless manner! It takes a little planning to fine tune the little details involved for your secret proposal with ” Love Picnic Paris ”
Once you have chosen your picnic style, we will guide you with choosing the right location. The Eiffel tower is obviously the number one destination but it can get a little crowded. Remember there are close to 17M tourist flying to France every year with a stop over in Paris. Once you have arrived in the city,dropped your bags at the hotel, the first site you would go to is the Eiffel tower. It can get a little crazy at time!
The Eiffel is certainly an amazing place for a secret proposal but do not forget that Paris is a gem of amazingly romantic locations which are often a little quieter. I was thinking of the Louvre gardens located in between the Pyramide and the Tuilerie gardens. Surprisingly enough, it is a little piece of heaven where tourist do not venture. It is only a few yards from the main entrance of the Louvre!
The Luxembourg gardens is also one of our favorite. It is situated on the border between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter. The Park is in the 6th arr. walking distance to iconic cultural cafe’s such as ” Les deux Magots ” and the ” café de Flores “. The garden contains just over a hundred statues, monuments and fountains, scattered throughout the grounds. It is utterly romantic, and overwelmingly beautiful!
So here, three different locations to chose from! Once you have decided on your perfect place to propose to your love one. We would fine tune the time of the day, pin point the exact location where your picnic would be ready and Olivier our photographer would take your proposal photographs as it happens.
You would then enjoy your picnic, crack a bottle of champagne. We would dismantle your picnic space for you so that you can carry on with your Paris engagement photo session with Olivier with the most amazing city in the background.
This is exactly what J+M did at the gardens of the Trocadero a few days back. Their picnic was followed by one hour photo session with Olivier around the site. The photos were sent to them a few days after their special event so that they could share they happiness with friends and family back home. Olivier would send you a couple of retouched photos the very same day as well to speed up the announcement!
Paris Rocks, and we love assisting you with this very special moment in your life. There is no need to stress about how things would happen during the day! We are here for you!
