A Paris couple shoot

Are you spending your holiday in Paris and would you love to have your time in Paris captured? Strolling along the Seine, admiring the beautiful sand stone buildings and Paris’ elaborately decorated bridges or eating croissants on a Parisian terrace? Or maybe you want to use your Paris trip to get your engagement pictures done? Or better yet, maybe you’re looking to do a couple shoot just after you’ve gotten engaged (why not combine the 2 and propose during the photoshoot)? Whatever the reason, you’re looking for an English speaking photographer for Paris couple shoots.

English photographer in Paris

I’m Renate van Dijk and I am a destination wedding photographer and founder of Wit Photography, specialised in weddings abroad in Europe and I live a 2,5 hour train ride from Paris. I photograph weddings everywhere within Europe but I also love capturing couples during their holidays abroad. Have a look at my couple shoot portfolio (or ‘love shoot’ as a lot of Europeans call them) and see where I’ve travelled to because of my work. I would love to photograph your session in Paris because I am addicted to travelling, but I love it even more when I photograph awesome couples at all kinds of places in the “city of love” even more. You know, the Louvre pyramid, a gorgeous creme coloured Parisian street or a view of the Eiffel Tower are all nice and good but it’s not half as good as placing a loving and fun loving couple within that frame.

I’m in Paris regularly to photograph couple shoots and weddings in this magical place and I feel honoured to capture peoples love for each other every time. In 2017 in shot my first wedding in France (I have been shooting weddings since 2013) and have been shooting couple shoots, weddings and elopements in this beautiful country ever since. This year I’ll be shooting in the south of France, near Carcassonne and Toulouse, in the north in the beautiful Lorraine region at Chateau de Hattonchatel and in Paris in the famous Ritz hotel.

Photography in Disneyland Paris

Did you know that recently it has become possible to get married in Disneyland Paris? I’m still a major Disneyland geek (I’ve even been to Disney World, yes that big a geek ;) )  and shooting a wedding in Disneyland Paris would be A-MA-ZING! But whether you want to have your portraits with your partner taken or are getting married in Disneyland Paris, I would be thrilled to capture it for you.

Favourite photo locations in Paris

I have so many favourite spots in Paris to shoot at that it is impossible to shoot at all the locations during 1 shoot. So as my future client I’ll send you a list of all the popular spots and let you choose where you want to go most during your 1 to 4 hour shoot (depending on how many locations you want to visit). Some couples prefer to have the famous “must-have” shots, whereas others like to have a couple of shots in which you can see the Eiffel Tower but in a less obvious way. 3 of my personal favourite spots are:

  • The Louvre Museum. Of course there’s the famous glass pyramid, but what I love most about this square is the versatility. You have the modern pyramid, but also the beautiful sand stone arches and gates surrounding the square. Within walking distance are pretty quay’s along the river Seine and…
  • Tuileries Gardens. This place might not ring a bell at first but once you see it, you’ll understand why I also include it in the location options.
  • Trocadéro. This is the place where you can get the iconic staircase photos with the Eiffel Tower in the background. It’s also close to the Carroussel and some wonderful Parisian Cafes. It is really busy though, so if you want to include this in your photoshoot I highly recommend to go with a shoot at sunrise (but if you’re flying over from the States you’re probably still jet lagged. So most of my clients don’t find it that hard to get up early ;) ).
