Your Paris Photoshoot Day

If you are still with me, then you are probably wanting more details about how your Parisian Photoshoot day will look.

Even before takeoff of your flight to Paris, there will be a certain amount of planning involved in order to make your dream shoot everything you would like it to be.  Two months ahead of arrival, we will set up an in person consultation to go over preparation for your photoshoot, and discuss wardrobe options.  I will provide you with a list of things you'll want to do before leaving to ensure we get the very best images of you in Paris!  We will discuss what types of images you would like to achieve, and match up the best wardrobe for your images and locations around Paris.  Do you want to add some personal branding/headshots to your shoot?  Do you want to wear a beautiful gown on the Trocadero at Sunrise?  The best and most efficient way to achieve all the images you would like will require mapping out what you want ahead of time.  Whatever you can dream up, we can make it happen with a little planning.

If one of your dreams is to wear a fabulous dress, then I've got you covered!  Ideally I would have you come to my studio and try on dresses that you would like to wear on your photoshoot.  If coming to my studio for a consultation and wardrobe fitting cannot happen, then we can cover the consultation information via Skype, and a preview of dresses available as well.  Once we have all the details hammered out, I will provide you with a summary in writing with all of the details.

On the morning of your photoshoot, I will come to your apartment or hotel in Paris bright and early and we will begin with professional hair and makeup, which will take 1-1/2 to 2 hours.  We will then get in our private car, and head to the first destination.  There will be a total of 5 destinations, which will be outlined in your contract (Order of stops subject to change depending on weather).  After the first or second stop, we will head to a wonderful Parisian Breakfast break, after which we will continue with the rest of the photoshoot stops, finishing up by 1PM.

If you would like to further customize your trip with images of a more casual nature in and around Paris, my services are available.  Would you like some images taken in the gardens of Giverny?  Or Versailles, perhaps?  These side trips can be arranged for a reasonable additional fee, but it is strongly recommended you plan them ahead of time.

After your photoshoot is over, you are free to finish your vacation at your leisure.  Your images will be ready for your in person reveal two to four weeks from the date of your photoshoot!  If you cannot make it in to the studio for an in person reveal, we can set up a Skype session to view your images.
