Paris eiffel tower engagement session

Paris engagement picnic and a photo session with Simon and Monica.

It is always a real pleasure to meet new clients in Paris over one of our picnic. It has now been over three years since we first started “Love Picnic Paris”! We have planned a lot of family picnics around the Eiffel tower, the Louvre and the Luxembourg gardens. We love our city. We also love gathering over a nice meal & a bottle of wine with family and friends. It has been a tradition in both our families since as far as we can recall to pack a picnic basket and head off to the country or the beach for the day. With “Love Picnic Paris”, we have managed to combine both our love for the city we live in and the enjoyment of sharing a picnic with lovers, friends and family.

A beautiful summer engagement under the eiffel tower.

Simon and Monica are typically addicted to Paris. They live in China and commonly fly once a year to the city for a few days to eat macarons and stroll down the streets of the Marais says Monica. Well this time around, Simon was going to propose and contacted ” Love Picnic Paris” to set up one of our lovely surprise picnic wicker basket at the foot of the Eiffel tower. He pop up the question as he was popping up the bottle of champagne.

Olivier was a little distance away capturing the whole scene as it happened in a discreet manner.  Funny enough, Monica had never been to the Eiffel tower side of Paris before. It was with a little surprise that she let her lover take her there for a summer afternoon. She was even more surprised to find out that there were a gourmet picnic all set up for them when they arrived at the Trocadero gardens. No need to say how taken back she was when Simon kneeled down and proposed to his lover. Monica cried, they laughed, kissed and cuddled. Then Monica finally realized they were being photographed!

Photography of your Paris engagement.

All of our gourmet picnics can be coupled with photography, either 1/2 an hour, one hour at the Eiffel tower. You can then extend your engagement photo session with Olivier to another hour or more at a different time of the day so that you get morning or afternoon light. From experience, we feel that the best would be to have your surprise picnic over lunch time, propose during the picnic hour. Let our photographer document the proposal and take you around the Eiffel tower and Trocadero site for one hour of photography.

You can then decide to meet up again at sunset at the Louvre gardens or the seine to complete your engagement session. It is a wonderful opportunity to have a professional photographer capture those magical moments while you are in the most amazing city of the world.

Our photographer would capture those moments in a lifestyle manner, with natural and unposed photos of the two of you. This way when you decide to marry, you can use those one of a kind engagement photographs as an invitation for the wedding or a signing book for your guests.

In any case, enjoy those few photographs from our couples engagement. Do not hesitate to reach out should you wish to propose while visiting Paris. Any of our gourmet picnic packages can be customized according to your special needs.

The idea was to arrive at the Louvres gardens, surprise his girlfriend with our romantic picnic set up. Michal reached out to a chilled bottle of Dom Perignon to celebrate the moment. He cracked the bottle of champagne open and popped the question while Olivier was taking our couple surprise proposal photographs from the distance. Our photographer then moved closer, snapped a few more photos as Michal was giving the engagement ring to his girlfriend. Our couple were laughing and were utterly happy!

Total success ….

Our love birds enjoyed their late afternoon diner with foie gras, smoked salmon, a market salad, and other goodies. When Olivier returned to the picnic site, they were finishing a chocolate cake and wipped cream for desert. They were ready for an hour of engagement photos around the Louvre museum.

Paris secret proposal

Paris secret proposal.

Everything was well planned in advance. We had been communicating with Ben the day before on whatsapp so that the timing was going to run smoothly. We did not take into consideration Ben’s emotional level. He was supposed to propose as they arrived at the picnic location. Olivier was hiding, ready to take the photos of the proposal as planned. Only when they arrived at the picnic, they sat down and started to open the bottle of wine. They carried on with enjoying their picnic, spreading all of the goodies on the mat.

Ben simply forgot that he was supposed to propose to Jess so it seemed at first. After a good 1/2 hour into the picnic, he finally stood up pretexting for a photo with the eiffel tower with the love of his life. AND YES, finally he kneeled down on the grass, looked at his girl friend in the eyes and asked: ” Do you want to marry me! ”

Snap, snap, snap, Olivier took a lot of photos from this moment onwards. following the proposal, he moved forward to introduced himself. Both Jess and Ben were in tear! He snapped a few more shots and let our couple enjoy the moment. After they had finished their lunch, we packed up and Olivier took them around the trocadero gardens for their engagement photo session. Here are part of the afternoon in a few visuals below.

Congratulation to the both of them, lovely afternoon!
