Photographer in Paris, France



- PHOTO SESSION IN PARIS -

 
  • DO YOU DO PORTRAIT SHOOTS?
Yes we do all sorts of portrait shoots, including solo portrait shoots, pre wedding / engagement shoots, old lovers and family too.
  • I HATE POSING FOR PICTURES. DO I HAVE TO POSE?
We don’t think it looks natural either. We actually make it fun so you don't even think about the photography process. We will show you how to pose and then we let the emotions come naturally
  • WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF DAY FOR A PORTRAIT SESSION?
The two times of day with the most beautiful light for portrait sessions here in Paris are early morning and just before sunset. The last hour before the sun goes down is known to photographers as the “magic hour” and as long as there aren’t clouds in the sky, images taken at this time will be dreamy, glowy and gorgeous. But we can always find shade if the timing isn’t ideal.
  • WHERE WILL OUR SESSION TAKE PLACE?
Location depends on your style and vision for the session. Based on your preferences, we will send a list of recommended locations to select between.
  • WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
The better approach is select a complimentary color pallet. We would like to review your outfits via email before your session.
  • WHEN WE WILL RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
Approximately 4 days after your session, you will receive an online gallery of digital images from your session. Prints are not included in the price of your session. 
  • HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Simply let us know you would like to book a photo shoot session, what dates work best for you and what type of session you are looking for through our contact page or email us at info@okphotoparis.com
  • WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT TERMS?
We ask for the session fee to be paid in advance to fully secure the booking and to allow us to get on with the necessary preparation. We require 50% when the order is placed and 50% on the day of shooting.
  • WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
If it is pouring with rain we will reschedule to a mutually convenient date. Light wind and showers are no obstacle to me so we will go ahead as planned! Umbrellas, duck in and out of cover or find a cool bar to chill until it passes.
