If you’re thinking about booking a photographer in Paris, you probably have some questions!
Here are some of the most common questions I receive. If you don’t see yours answered here, please get in touch with me and ask. I’d be more than happy to help!
What kind of photography do you do?
My specialty is lifestyle photography with a soft, colorful, and natural feel, and a strong sense of place.
I love taking the kind of portraits that capture important moments, whether that moment is a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Paris, an absolutely killer outfit of the day, or that glance you exchange with your best friend or love of your life. I also do brand work for businesses that need beautiful and cohesive photography to tell their company story.
Natural light photography is my jam, but if you have a night or studio-lit shoot in mind, I’ve got the gear and I know how to use it! I work with a variety of clients, both individuals and businesses, and I love taking on new and challenging projects.
I need an English-speaking or bilingual photographer in Paris. Is that you?
It could be! I’m a native English speaker from California (hey there, fellow Californians!) but I also speak fluent French and Italian, as well as some Spanish. We can do our Paris photoshoot in whatever language is easiest for you! Or we can mix and match languages if your group speaks more than one language, or if you’re just feeling funky.
How far in advance to I need to book?
Honestly, it depends! As a photographer who travels a lot (and often by the seat of my pants) I know that sometimes you might not know your plans months or even weeks in advance. My schedule fills up more quickly for sessions in the summer and early fall than other seasons, and I always recommend reaching out sooner rather than later.
That said, if I have the availability I’m happy to take reservations even a few days in advance. As soon as you have an idea of your timing, shoot me a message, and I’ll get back to you ASAP!
How much do you charge?
I provide tailored packages depending on the type of photography we’re doing, the length of the photoshoot, and how many edited photos I’ll deliver.
I believe transparency in pricing is important, and I’m working on uploading specialized package and price guides to this site! If you don’t see a guide that fits your needs yet, contact me and I’ll get you one.
As a rough guide, an hour-long photoshoot + basic retouching and editing + 30 digitally delivered photos for noncommercial use starts at 250€.
Psst! I’m currently offering discounted rates on Paris portrait photoshoots for individuals and couples if you book me via Airbnb. Click here to do it directly through my website!
Where do you do your photography?
I’m based in Paris, France—the 15th arrondissement, to be exact! I will happily meet you for photography anywhere in Paris. I’m also available for photography projects around France, Europe, and the rest of the world, too.
What’s your booking process?
Step 1: Get in touch with me! Tell me about what you’re looking for, and when you’re looking for it. I’ll get back to you shortly to hammer out the details!
Step 2: Once we’ve got a contract signed and a 50% deposit paid, you’re officially in my calendar! I’m available to answer any questions you might have in preparation for your shoot. (I give great restaurant recommendations, too.)
Step 3: We both meet at the agreed-upon place and time, we take some beautiful photos together, and we have a lot of fun doing it.
Step 4: I spend some time editing the very best shots of the day to deliver a series of polished photos right to your inbox! I will send you a link to your digital gallery when they’re ready for download.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule?
If something happens to make the shoot impossible (Act of God or serious illness), you can request either to reschedule or to have your deposit refunded.
In other cases, deposits are not refundable. You may reschedule up until 1 week before the shoot, but please keep in mind that my availability may be limited on short notice.
How does the digital photo delivery work?
Unless you request otherwise, all photos will be delivered via password-protected online gallery, where you can download both full-resolution photos and smaller photos for your social media.
When your photos are ready, I’ll send you an email with a link to your personalized gallery and the password you’ll need to access it. The gallery will ask for your email and the pre-defined password, and you’re in! You can share the password with friends, family, coworkers, etc. if you like—totally up to you.
Please make sure to save and back up your images. I clean out photos every few months and cannot guarantee that I will have backups for you later on. null
