Eiffel Tower elopement photographer
If you book a great Eiffel Tower elopement photographer then you’ll not only get great Paris wedding photos to cherish forever, but you will also have someone at your side who will help you planning your Paris elopement at the Eiffel Tower. As professional Eiffel Tower elopement photographer I was happy to be part of Yoselin & Stephen’s elopement in Paris – and to provide them with useful tips and advice to get married in Paris and elope at the Eiffel Tower.
Eiffel Tower elopement photographer skills
When searching for and booking an Eiffel Tower elopement photographer make sure of the following:
- Book a local photographer who knows Paris and the area around the Eiffel Tower well. This Eiffel Tower elopement photographer knows the best photoshoot locations, ceremony spots, timeline and much more. (more below)
- Choose a Paris photographer who is specialized and shooting a lot of Paris elopements. Elopements and weddings require different skills then just a Paris couple photo shoot. (more below)
- Book an Eiffel Tower elopement photographer who has a great photography style, who is friendly and responsive and who speaks English as well as French (French skills can go a long way if you need to ask people to move, talk so security guards, etc…)
Elegant & candid Paris elopement photos
As English speaking Eiffel Tower elopement photographer I made sure that Yoselin & Stephen would have a variety of Paris elopement photos to remember forever these unforgettable moments when eloping in Paris.
Photo poses: I am always happy to guide my couples through their wedding photoshoot. As elopement photographer in Paris I got a lot of experience and know what will look great on your Paris elopement photos. So for many of Yoselin & Stephen’s elegant wedding photos at the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and Alexander III bridge I helped them to find the most glamorous poses, show of the dress and veil etc.
Candid photos: But it is also important for me to capture these sweet and romantic moments of their Paris wedding day with candid and natural photographs. Mainly during their Eiffel Tower wedding ceremony I was simply an observer and just went with the flow.
Group pictures: And if you are not eloping in Paris just the two of you, but bring a handful of guests, then we should definitely also take a few group photos and family photos.
Best Paris elopement locations
As local Eiffel Tower elopement photographer I also know the best place to elope in Paris. I always suggest great spots to my couples and help them create a Paris wedding photoshoot itinerary that they love.
It’s important to know that some locations work great for Paris elopement photos, but are too busy or exposed for your wedding ceremony. Their celebrant in Paris, Laura Montorio, suggested the Eiffel Tower gardens for Yoselin & Stephen’s ceremony. This Eiffel Tower location worked perfectly for their Paris elopement ceremony.
For Yoselin & Stephen’s wedding photo shoot we together decided to divide the photoshoot into two parts: The first part would be at the Eiffel Tower Trocadero for wedding photos and group photos, as well as their ceremony. For the second part their guests would not join, but it would only be the couple and their son. We went to elegant Alexander III bridge and took photos at the Louvre palace.
Best Paris elopement timeline
Last but not least as your professional Eiffel Tower elopement photographer in Paris I usually suggest to schedule your Eiffel Tower wedding and Paris elopement photo session in the morning. Paris is a very busy city. The only way to avoid crowds – especially at famous place like the Eiffel Tower and Louvre – is to meet rather early in the morning. Because plenty of people and passersby in the background of your pictures is not very pretty. Also it’s always nice to be as quiet and intimate as possible when you exchange your wedding vows during your Paris elopement ceremony.
Plus the light in the morning, especially at sunrise, is the best possible light for your Paris elopement photo session. Morning light is soft and flattering and will make your photos look so gorgeous.
