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.
