Professional photographers in Paris and pricing?

The wife and I are looking for a photographer to take some memorable pictures for us while we are in Paris. I've found some links and contacted a few people but wanted to see if anyone here could recommend a good but reasonably priced photographer (Our budget puts us in 300 euro range for 2 locations (Lourve and Eiffel Tower) with a change of clothes). Thanks!

A couple of details here?
If you're expecting outdoor pix (I don't think you're thinking of having these taken UP in the Eiffel?) where do you think you'll find a place to change?

And what if it's raining the day you've booked this photographer?

Just guessing based on my association with pro shooters in the U.S. but you're looking at a 1/2 day rate + possibly extra for two locations. I'd say to be prepared to pay above that 300 euro cost + more for retouching or other special requests.

Like Kathy, I'm not sure that you'll find exactly what you want for that price point, but rain or no rain, it's a great idea. Take a look at Dagmara Bojenko's website; she has some lovely portraits. And...I'm sure you have an idea of backdrops, but can I just say that there are so many great locations in Paris--many of which are quieter spots with fewer people--so give some thought to mixing it up! :)
Have a great time & enjoy!

Hi -

I follow this photographer on Instagram

I enjoy seeing her photos. Her prices are higher than your budget, but she does offer a mini session for 325 but it's only one location and for an hour.

Good luck! Let us know if you find someone!

If you want these photos taken inside the Louvre you will need a commercial photo permit from the museum.

Update: I was able to find someone that fit my criteria, and I will report back when we get back from vacation about the experience (300 euro for 1.5 hr/ 2 locations).

Everyplace we considered are all outdoors in public spaces, so no special permitting needed. The photographer said that rain cancellations will give a full refund. Supposedly we can change in public restrooms or certain cafes if its on the way to the 2nd location.
