Consider the photos you took during your last family vacation: the kids in front of that fountain turned out a bit too hazy; you and your other half bathed in sunlight would have been an amazing souvenir were it not for that livid hue; that picture the tour guide took of the family on your iphone was fine, except for...The point is, in every picture something is just off.
Here’s an idea: what if your tour guide also happened to be, say, a professional photographer? We see an immaculate snapshot of you embracing your loved one in the Tuileries gardens after a mind-blowing tour of the Louvre. We see you and the kids huddling together over a round of chocolat chaud at a charming café.
When you take part in our Portrait Tour, you’ll not only experience a fascinating excursion with an expert on Paris, you’ll also return home with plenty of stunning, professional photos to relive your trip time and again.

We propose the following photo-op optimized itinerary, which we’ve carefully designed to include the most photogenic sights in Paris. However, we are happy to tailor the itinerary to your personal interests.
Your photo shoot starts at the Palais Royal in the very center of Paris. Soak up the beauty of the gardens as you discover the rich history of this former royal residence....and don’t forget to say cheese (or fromage, if you wish)! You’ll also get a chance to frolic among the famous Colonnes de Buren, where many a high profile fashion photo-shoot has taken place.
Next on the list are the Louvre museum and Jardin de Tuileries, both great photo ops with intriguing pasts. Then, you’ll cross Place de la Concorde, Paris’s biggest square — which incidentally was also the designated spot for guillotine executions — and head to the Champs-Elysées. Here you will pass by the Grand and Petit Palais, the only remaining testaments of the World Exposition of 1900. Learn about the city’s past, walk in the footsteps of French dignitaries, and shop a little as your personal paparazzi captures all your best angles.
Time to explore the other side of the river, starting with the Hôtel des Invalides. This former military hospital, and the site of Napoleon’s tomb, housed thousands of France’s injured combatants over its lifetime, hence the name. The gilded dome and vast garden make for great backdrops for your next set of gorgeous pictures. The last leg of the tour takes place at the Champ de Mars and Eiffel Tower nearby. What better way to conclude your visit than with a pose in front of this immortal Parisian symbol? Your professionally compiled portfolio is nearly ready—that’s when our surprise comes in!
In the event of rain, the tour will start at the Palais Royal, from which you’ll subsequently explore Paris’s covered passages: a place where mystery and tradition merge. Don’t worry, your photos will be equally fabulous!

Bruno was born in Jakarta, Indonesia. During his childhood, he never stayed put in a single country for more than two years. As a result, traveling has become a passion for him. His career as a professional photographer started in 2006. Ever since, he's attempted to highlight, through his own eyes, the character of every landscape and culture he has encountered. The son of an architect, he has always been interested in architecture making Paris the perfect playground to focus his lens on. It's been seven years, but the richness and diversity of the Parisian setting still offers new discoveries, and encourages him to find new perspectives. Thus allowing him to conciliate pleasure, business, and art all in one place.
Although born in Sweden, Carin is probably better suited for a life in Paris – strolling along the left bank, nibbling on sugary treats from favorite Hugo & Victor, or simply enjoying the views from Île Saint Louis and Quai d’Orléans. After working at ELLE and a Swedish travel magazine she decided to see what all those daydreams about a life abroad would really be like. When she finally decided to make the move, there was no doubt in mind – to Paris bien sûr! After moving to Paris for four short months (which just happened to be the rainiest spring in 84 years) she decided to try the Parisian life long-term. Carin is crazy about sweets; she gets equally excited when fashion week takes over the French capital. To capture these moments, she has her camera, which is always within arm’s reach.
Meg is a Denverite gone Parisian. She's American at heart but has been thrown into, adapted to and has succeeded in blending into the Parisian lifestyle over the years. She's a marketer by trade and digital- obsessed gal in this city of oh so many lights, with a passion for photography. She fills up her free time wandering unknown corners of the city, riding her bike and indulging in the many edible delights that Paris has to offer. She also loves vintage kitchenware, antique markets, craft beer, clogs, romantic comedies, and photobooths. All of these things with the help of Paris as her playground are showcased on her lifestyle and photography blog, De quelle planète es-tu.
Born and raised in the Paris region, François moved to Britanny first and then to the east of France for his studies before coming back to Paris a few years ago. He first worked as a video technician for an international news channel for 5 years. He was also in charge of the audiovisual aspect of some major events in Paris, including the Jules Verne Adventure Film Festival and the Japan Expo. He is now a professional photographer. His specialties are portrait and landscape photography, taken mainly during his numerous trips. His lively personality will have you feeling like a star!
Enguerran is a photographer who loves his job. Before becoming a photographer, he did a couple of strange things : he sold books door-to-door in Texas; spent time in Mexico discovering the Aztec culture, (and ate lot of tacos); rode his bike in the terraced rice paddies of Southern China; and became a consultant in emergency management at a recruitment agency. Photography remained his number one interest, so he decided to make a living out of it. Today, Enguerran owns his own studio in Paris. His work focuses on documentaries and corporate photography both in Paris and Hong Kong. He definitely shares his love of Paris with the Localers.
Lauren, 24, grew up in southern California with a penchant for music and art. She discovered France during a study abroad program in 2008, when she lived with a French family in Boulogne for a summer. After that, the rest was history--within a few years she and her husband, who also had lived in France previously, made the move to Paris. Having studied photography in high school and college, Paris was the perfect place to find inspiration in the beautiful scenery, architecture, and history of image-making. She currently lives in Montmartre (where one of her favorite films, Amélie was filmed), and can be found roaming her neighborhood with old film cameras, in search of new charming corners to shoot in.
