Greg & Annie Honeymoon picnic and a fun photo session at the Eiffel tower

Greg and Annie fun afternoon with “Love Picnic Paris” at the Eiffel tower

” Love Picnic Paris” had a fun time yesterday with a lovely couple from Australia who flew to Europe for their Honeymoon! ” Love Paris Picnic ” is all about Paris! Our clients are friends, families and couples who wish to enjoy a special moment with a gourmet picnic and creative photography while they visit the city. We can orchestrate your secret Paris proposal, a family reunion, a friends get together, important moments in your life while you are vacationing in France.

Greg and Annie had a gourmet Picnic in Paris yesterday. Olivier took a few photographed with our couple in a lifestyle manner around the Eiffel tower and the trocadero site. I love those huge smiles and happy faces on Annie and Greg honeymoon photos session.

Annie contacted us from Italy a few days prior to their arrival in Paris. She wanted to surprise her husband with a gourmet picnic and a photo session. She decided to couple our “Amelie Poulain” picnic with one hour of photography around the Eiffel tower. Our picnic was all set up for them when they arrived at the champ de mars by 13h00. They settled down while Olivier snapped a few photos of the two of them to begin with; our wicker basket and a couple of red balloons in sight!

Our Amelie Poulain gourmet menu:

They ordered our Amelie Poulain gourmet picnic basket with traditional lemonade. Below is a recap of the menu they had over lunch time.

  • Baguette Tradition Planche du marché & Cured Meats: cured ham, saucisson hand selected cheeses.
  • Homemade tart with fresh market ingredients.
  • Fresh Market Salad.
  • Seasonal Fresh Fruit; Strawberries for desert!

You can find our four different picnic menus in “Love Picnic Paris” service page. You can easily choose your preferred picnic from this page. You can pick on the date and time in the roll down menu as well. You may add various options such as flowers, champagne and photography to your liking. Our mini photo session, half an hour of photography is charged at € 180. This includes a set of photographs all edited and retouched with a set of low and high resolution files both for the internet and printing. We make a point that we sent you all of the photos back to you via “wetransfer” the next day.

Once we’ve received your order, we will fine tune all of the little details with you. We will then ask you to pay for your picnic via paypal. You have 24 hours to complete your purchase. Please do not hesitate to share with us any special request that you may have.

Picnic at the Eiffel tower

What about if the weather is not cooperating!

The weather had been a little temperamental recently and we had our noises stuck to our weather forecast board the previous days.

The best location to set up a picnic for photos and vista is the Trocadero area. It is a large open space. It can be a little windy at times though. There are people passing by. Down below from the main square is always pretty quiet. You’ll get the most amazing view of the eiffel tower from across the seine. In case of possible rain & showers, we would set up the picnic on the other side of the park. It is a little quieter and at the foot of the Eiffel tower. We posted a few photos from the champ de mars area yesterday so that you can have a more precise idea of the site.

Picnic location on a rainy day.


The champ de mars area is usually where we would set up a picnic in case of rain. There is a shelter area just around the corner from our usual picnic set up with a view of the eiffel tower. This is exactly what we did for Annie and Greg. We first went to the Trocadero on the day. We then decided it would be best to set up the picnic at our location on the champ de mars after all. Olivier simply contacted our clients by phone with the map below to advise them on the final picnic location.

You usually have one hour to enjoy this very parisian moment. Once Annie and Greg had finished their picnic, they simply walk over to the seine with Olivier for their photo session. Looking at the final set of photographs, I think that everyone had a great time!

We ask you to be reachable by phone on the morning of your picnic. We may need to reassess our set up plans because of the weather. In case of possible rain, we would usually decide once we get to the site what would be the best possible set up for the day. We would then communicate the location via text message with a map.

Gourmet picnic at the Eiffel tower + mini photo session

A romantic gourmet picnic at the Eiffel tower with Mark and Danielle.

The Eiffel tower area is probably the first visit one makes landing in Paris. Whether you are visiting for a day, a week or longer, it might just be the first destination you are going to head to, sometimes even before you drop your luggages at your hotel. It is grand, it is a beautiful piece of architecture!

I myself never get bored looking at it! And it is PARIS … I first visited the Eiffel tower with my parents when i was 7 year old. I remember my dad being sea sick from the height!!

We’ve recently had clients who made a point to enjoy one of our gourmet picnic at the eiffel tower just before heading back to the airport with their luggages and everything. Anything is possible. If you are looking for something special, do not hesitate to drop us a line; we will try to accommodate your query the best we can. It is always a real pleasure to cater for clients visiting Paris from all over the world. We have met so many lovely couples and families last year.

Paris is beautiful all over, specially at this time of the year. We are in full spring mode now.

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. We explain in more details the different types of services we propose to make this moment unique and completely stress free!

Family picnic and a photo session at the Eiffel tower

We had a beautiful day in Paris yesterday. The fall season has simply been  gorgeous . It has been a lot of fun to stretch our summer picnic season a little. We actually organized a gourmet family picnic yesterday. It was coupled with a photo session with our photographer Olivier around the Trocadero area for a family of four from Singapore. Miss Chin Yeng Choo asked us to prepare a picnic at the footstep of the Eiffel tower while they were visiting Paris. They visit Paris every 5 years and we are so glad they contacted us this time around. The kids are now all grown up. She wanted to take the opportunity of a family trip to Europe to have a professional photographer take a few portraits of the family.

We are lucky to have a very talented photographer under our roof! Olivier happens to be my partner in crime and the co founder of ” Love Picnic Paris”. This way, we propose fun and creative photo session along our picnics with one of the best photographer in town!

You can visit Olivier’s creative wedding work on his website. His photo are fun and natural yet stylish and creative. He shoots in a lifestyle manner and always make sure that his clients are having a great time in front of his lens!

I am myself camera shy. Having a photographer who can make you relax and simply enjoy the moment makes a whole lot of difference. This is where real craftsmanship, passion, experience and dedication will make the final result unique and the experience a long lasting happy memory.

Our picnic experiences are unique so are our family and couple photo session.

Ashley + Kent Paris photo session and a gourmet picnic at the Eiffel tower

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 …

Paris secret proposal Le Louvre

A gourmet picnic and lifestyle photography.

Our latest secret proposal venture combining a gourmet picnic and a mini photo session at the gardens of the Louvre with our photographer. When we started ‘Love Paris Picnic ” the idea was to share our love for picnics, outings with friends and creative photography. Olivier is a very talented photographer with a vast experience in lifestyle and portrait photography.

Paris being the city of love, we quickly found our marks, catering for very special secret proposals but not only! You can of course order a gourmet picnic from us via our picnic order page. We have four different gourmet picnics to choose from. I have to say that it is a real delight to organise a secret proposal in our wonderful city for our international clients. It is equally rewarding to prepare a delightful picnic in one of our wicker basket for friends, families and partners in crime who wish to have a special experience in Paris, something that is truly a “French tradition”.

Back to our lovers outings, we assist you with finding the perfect site, a romantic and peaceful setting. We will set up the most romantic gourmet picnic with one of our wicker basket, lovely cushions, candles, umbrella to shade yourself from the sun if need be. We would also dismantle the set up once you are finished so that you can carry on with your visit without having to worry about returns.

As to photography! Olivier would document your proposal from the distance in a discreet fashion. This way you have some creative visuals of a very important moment in your life. The photos would be retouched and sent out to you the next day so that you can share your love with friends and family while still vacationing.

Here is the page where you can choose one of our designed lovers package if you plan on proposing while visiting Paris. Paris secret proposal: Three different packages combine a gourmet picnic with a creative lovers photo session.

We have actually put together different packages specially catered for lovers that combine one of our delightful picnic with a photo session in the streets of Paris from a mini 1/2 hour photo shoot to an extensive 3 hours photo tour at some of the most beautiful Paris landmarks with Olivier.

Our picnics are usually set up at the gardens of the Trocarero, the gardens of the Louvre or the Luxembourg gardens. All three Parisian locations have their own specific charm and atmosphere. We love them all! Our picnics can be tailored to your specific needs as well. We have actually put together a vegan picnic recently for one of our client. This was a new experience for us. Jamie proposed at the Louvre gardens. It was a fun event to organize.
Here are some sample photographs taken by Olivier during the proposal.

Paris engagement photographer + gourmet picnic

“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.

Jen+Patrick wedding anniversary and a special birthday celebration

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!

A Gourmet Paris Picnic + Engagement Photo session

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!

Paris gourmet picnic

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.

Paris engagement photographer

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.

Picnic in Paris + Romantic photo session

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!

You can view some of Olivier’s professional photographic work on his website by the way.
