*Clients Review :

“I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Love Picnic Paris and Oliver. Our picnic was set up in a great, isolated location overlooking the Eiffel Tower. My now fiancé was so surprised when we walked up to it and loved all of the food, decorations, and flowers Oliver picked out. Our photo shoot afterwards was such a fun experience. Olivier, our photographer made us feel so comfortable and kept us laughing the entire time. I highly recommend using Love Picnic Paris if you plan on getting engaged in Paris.”

*Review from YELP!:

“I want to thank you both for making my surprise proposal to my  girlfriend (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. Our Versailles 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”! 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”!

Eiffel tower Paris surprise proposal and engagement idea.

In front of the Eiffel Tower is an all-time favorite for a wonderful Paris engagement. The Eiffel tower is a short walk to your picnic site either at the Trocadero gardens or the champ de Mars. Following your picnic, Olivier will walk you around the Eiffel tower if you decide on one hour of photography.

You may wish to propose at a different location such as the Seine, the Luxembourg Gardens, the Louvre … Just ask & we will plan your dream proposal for you. Please note that you can now assist you with your proposal at the gardens of Versailles with a great picnic coupled with your engagement photos.

Here we’ll pull off the perfect secret proposal:

After fine tuning the time and place where we will set up your surprise picnic, you and your partner will arrive at the agreed upon location. Your gourmet picnic will be all ready for you to enjoy. Our photographer will be there waiting too (hidden paparazzi style) to document your proposal.  Lasting about half an hour, this secret proposal photo session captures the exciting and candid moments from afar and the exact instant that she says, ‘Yes!’

Once you have proposed, you will open the bottle of champagne and laugh with your love one. Olivier will introduce himself and take a few more photographs of the two of you at the picnic site. We will be “on call” during your picnic hour. Once you have finished your picnic, Olivier will take you around the eiffel tower for one hour photo session. Depending on your chosen package, your photo session may stretch to two or three hours of photography.  

These are photographs you and your partner will LOVE and treasure forever; Olivier will capture the moment that you have decided to share your future life together.

If you choose a package including an Engagement Photo Tour, Olivier will guide you around Paris for more romantic couple’s photography. Again, this photo tour is flexible and can range from one to three hours, depending on your preferences. We will arrange and coordinate with you all of your photo shoot details such as possible locations, change of dress, time of the day via email.

The two of you glowing with excitement and the stunning backdrop of Paris will make for extraordinary photographs that you can later share with friends and family. They’ll want to hear about every last detail of your Paris story, and pictures are a part of it of course!

Our passion is making your dream Paris proposal  come true. “Love Picnic Paris” expertise and kindness shines through the care put into the planning, execution, and photographs. This is a once in a lifetime moment, and we will do everything to make it perfect.

*Review from YELP!:

“I could not recommend Love Picnic Paris highly enough.
Oliver and his wife were excellent in communicating the original set up of the picnic and even were kind enough to cater to our dietary requirements and provide a VEGAN picnic – which included 3 vegan cheeses and was absolutely delicious.
On the day of the proposal our original Eiffel Tower location was extremely busy and Oliver contacted me to arrange a new location at the Garden of the Louvre – in hindsight this provided a much more intimate and special experience.
My partner was completely surprised and loved the picnic set up. We have since received the photos which are amazing and are a great memento to share with family and friends to re-live the once in a lifetime experience.
Merci beaucoup! Martin. “
