During one hour photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower, we will have enough time to walk from one location to the other, both with the Eiffel Tower on your photos.
I usually recommand Bir Hakeim Bridge (as the first location) + another location (2, 3 or 4).
If you choose the Mini session (30 minute photoshoot), you will have to pick up one location out of these 4 options.
Location 1: Bir Hakeim Bridge
If you’re looking for a family photoshoot with the Eiffel Tower in the background, this is usually where I would recommand to meet first at Bir Hakeim Bridge.
Why Bir Hakeim bridge for a family photo session in Paris?
1. Because there is a stunning view on the Eiffel Tower.
2. Because it’s less crowded than Trocadero
–> Note that the Eiffel Tower and its surroundings is the most required location for a photoshoot. There will be other photoshoots taking place at the same time of yours.
If you’re looking for more privacy and hidden gems in Paris, I would recommand the following spots:
– Palais Royal Gardens (within walkable distance from The Louvre)
– Tuileries Gardens (within walkable distance from The Louvre)
– The Marais district
Location 2: A pretty greeny location with the Eiffel Tower
in the background
During a one hour photoshoot, we have time to walk in the surroundings. After Bir Hakeim, we can walk towards this beautiful and (usually) quiet location.
This would offer a perfect scenery with a parisian building as well as the Eiffel Tower and trees!
Location 3: Down the River
Down to the Seine River. Let’s walk along the River and its boats with the Iron Lady on your back.
Location 4: Beautiful parisian street next to the Tower
Last but not least, you will love this beautiful street with the Eiffel Tower in the background!
On the next pictures, we got lucky because no one was there but it is usually crowded.
If it’s crowded, I will always try my best to avoid the crowd (by taking the picture from a certain angle).
