Questions and Answers
Is two hours enough?
We consider two hours to be the ideal length of a photo tour: it allows you to cover several locations, but you will not be exhausted at the end. In two hours, depending on traffic, you can cover 3 or 4 locations. It is possible to add time/locations, this is something that you can discuss with your Personal Planner.
How many pictures do we get?
In addition to a few social media friendly photos that you will receive within 24 hours, you will get 80+ photos to download from an online gallery. Photos are available in high resolution. Final photos will have no watermarks and you have full rights granted.
Are photos edited?
Images are lightly edited by the photographer – lighting, framing and contrast. More comprehensive editing, such as skin retouching or customized highlights are not included in the package price but can be discussed with the photographer and arranged for an additional fee. Our photographers do not do heavy editing like removing people or objects from the background, or making your appearance different.
Can guests come along on the photo tour?
While this photo tour is ideally designed to be a romantic relaxing moment between two people, we are happy to accommodate your guests. With a Mercedes Viano car, you can have up to 4 guests coming along on your photo shoot. Unfortunately, we do not offer larger cars which would not fit some of our beautiful but smaller streets.
What happens if it rains?
Weather is unpredictable and you may be wondering “will rain affect our photo tour?”.
First, be reassured: we never had a photo tour ruined by rain. In Paris, most of the time, rain is just light sprinkles that come and go. On the rare occasions (maybe once a year) where heavy rain is forecast, we always offer an alternate time or day for the photo session.
Now, if you do have your photo tour on a rainy day, know that Paris in the rain actually opens up to another world. So many movies and writers mention how magical Paris is in the rain and it is true.
Some couples take the opportunity to accessorize with a red umbrella, which has a stunning effect on photos.
Can we take a different route?
Yes, we are happy to accommodate special requests. Simply let us know the locations that you would like to cover in your photo shoot and we will design a route just for you. Please note that some itineraries may require additional time with your chauffeur and photographer.
Should we book professional hair and makeup?
You are free to come as you are, and some brides are particularly talented when it comes to fixing their own hair and makeup. There are however great reasons to book a professional hair and makeup artist for the occasion:
- Your makeup and hairstyle will last longer
- You can send any inspiration photo and they will know how to make it (see our hair and makeup gallery)
- Getting pampered offers you a relaxing time – you don’t even need to go to a salon, our hair and makeup artists will come to your hotel or apartment rental
Can we do an engagement photo tour?
There is no convention to have a reception but as Paris is full of amazing restaurants, your renewal of vows gives you a perfect excuse to splash out on a memorable and romantic meal.
Can we go to the Montmartre area?
You have probably noticed that the Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre is not on our photo tour map. It is of course possible to do a shoot in the Montmartre area of Paris but it is a significant distance away from the city center and the other landmarks. For this reason, if you would like to go to Montmartre, we recommend that you focus your photo tour on this area of Paris.
Can we get any type of car?
The top 5 reasons why couples renew their wedding vows in Paris:
- Paris is the iconic city of love
- The Paris streets and monuments offer the perfect setting for romantic photos
- In Paris, couples can treat themselves with fine food, culture, and attractions
- It’s the perfect destination for a second honeymoon
- To fulfill their dream to travel together
Can we use our own photographer?
It is possible to use your own photographer. We would offer a 500 Euro deduction from the package price. You would then be responsible for all the arrangements with your photographer. Because of the number of weddings we organize we have a special long term agreements with all our English-speaking Paris based photographers and it would be unlikely that you could find such talent directly to do a similar shoot for less than 1500-2000 Euros.
What is the best time of year to come to Paris?
What better reason do you need than renewing your wedding vows to get away to Paris for a second honeymoon? Make it special and stay at least one night in a top Paris hotel.
