Romantic Couples Photo Shoot by the Eiffel Tower in Paris

April 09, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I’ve been wanting to do a couples shoot on the Palais de Chaillot over looking the Eiffel Tower for many years and last December that dream became a reality.

I was lucky enough to have a beautiful French couple to photograph, Franck and Nathalie from Bordeaux. They were visiting family in Paris for Christmas and were keen to get some photos taken in this iconic spot over looking the Eiffel Tower. 

The day before we met to decide on what clothes they should wear. For a couples shoot in this location it was important for me to stylise it and give the couple a look to which you wouldn’t know if the picture was taken fifty years ago or today. 

Nathalie wore a knee length black dress and with black high heels. Franck wore black trousers, shoes and dark blue coat with collar.

Getting the light I wanted meant we’d need to be at the Palais de Chaillot just before sunrise  when the temperature would be a chilly -1C. There wouldn’t be many people at this time meaning I could give the images the feel of the couple having the location to themselves. The sun comes up pretty quick so we'd need to work fast.

I wasn’t going to be shooting any close ups and any I did get wouldn’t be that well lit but it was still important to get there hair and makeup done even though it was a less important detail that usual. Nathalie has fairly short hair which is easy to manage and my assistant had a brush on hand should Nathalie get a little wind swept.

Franck and Nathalie were great models. My French isn’t that good so my assistant did need to translate at some points but ultimately we all got the results we wanted from our early morning Parisian photo shoot.
