Wow! What a wonderful time I had with Michel. I was nervous at first but he does make you feel relaxed and I really had a fantastic time seeing the sites of Paris and being photographed in beautiful settings. Well worth it!!
At the beginning I had some doubts. Especially as I read several bad reviews about the communication according to the meeting point. But I Must say that it couldn't have gone smoother. We arrived a few minutes earlier at the meeting point en we recognized our personal photographer Michel. He introduced himself kindly and did his best to make us feel comfortable right from the start. Michel was really great during this shoot. He made us laugh, feel comfortable, was professional, took his time to give us some inside information and tips for the rest of our stay and most important, shot a lot of great pictures of my girlfriend and me. We couldn't have wished for a better guide/photographer than Michel. He said shoots at least 150 pictures but during this 2 hour tour he shot 234 pictures and we already received them the day after.
My advice, if you can prefer a photographer than ask for Michel. He is great!
Aaricia was absolutely amazing. The weather was less than optimal but her professionalism and sunny disposition more than made up for it. I was joking with my friends when I told them I planned to hire a photographer to follow me around while in Paris, but when I found this tour I knew I had to do it. If you want an amazing way to capture your time in the City of Lights this is the way to go. I don't know where I am going to put all of the beautiful images I now have but Aaricia gave me so many to choose from that I will be shopping for frames and making wall space for months to come.
This is an absolutely beautiful way to commemorate your time in Paris. Aaricia was the consummate professional. She was pleasant and helpful and sought to bring out the very best in me as she turned me into a supermodel for the day.
This was a birthday gift from my best friends and it was the best birthday present ever. I was traveling solo in Paris, and this was a great way to get pictures with some of the sights in Paris that were not taken with a selfie stick and cell phone. Michel Planson, my photographer did a great job at making me feel comfortable and he was very knowledgeable about the area which made getting that perfect shot all the more obtainable. This is also a great way to get a lay of the land. I got my pictures back really quickly, and they of course were of professional quality. If you can squeeze it in, I would recommend this highly.
Me and my husband booked this tour for our first trip to Paris. This was also our first photography tour so we were not prepared for this kind of experience but David, our photographer was a true gem. He was funny, spontaneous and made us at ease. It was a nice day but cold and windy so we had our jackets. He carried our jackets almost throughout the trip. The pictures have come out so beautiful and natural. Not only we liked our pictures but we LOVED David. Thanks David.
I had an absolutely wonderful experience with David my photographer. I met him at an agreed location and we were off. The time went so fast because it was so fun. He had so many places in mind for great photos and I absolutely loved it. He did an amazing job, he made me feel comfortable and to start to like the camera. We had a blast. The same night I received over 200 photos of my time... the pics were beyond amazing. He so accurately captured me in Paris having such a great time! It was truly amazing. I highly recommend this tour to capture some wonderful memories in Paris. My friends and family were also thoroughly impressed with my photos, just fantastic! This is such a great idea and everyone should do it. My deepest thanks and appreciation for your time and work, I am beyond thrilled and forever grateful.
David was a blast, absolutely amazing! My fiancé and I were in Paris for a college break tour and thought it would be fun to get some pictures together instead of all our selfies. We could have never imagined that they would turn out this great! David was knowledgeable and energetic. He went above and beyond for the perfect shot, he would move trash, lay on the ground, and somehow find a way to keep other people out of the frame. We wanted some romantic as well as fun shots and he was able to deliver. He knew where to take us for great shots, he helped us pose, and most importantly he made us feel comfortable. David would give us tidbits of information about the area we were taking pictures in and gave us ideas of activities to do while in Paris. We had so much fun with this photo shoot and getting to know David.
What a great tour we had, will highly recommend it! Specially if it's your honeymoon like it was for us, Michel was fantastic and the pictures worth every penny
what a great idea and the photographer was really friendly. I was amazed how good the pictures were considering we are in our fifties and our kids loved them. Thanks for the memories of Paris
Ari was an amazing guide who took beautiful photos. We took them Wednesday and had them by Friday! A great way to remember our trip.
We had David as our photographer and he was brilliant! We had so much fun doing funny poses, jumping in the middle of the street while the traffic was stopped as well as some romantic, cuddly/kissing photos. David asked if there was anything in particular we wanted and we got it and so much more!!
Somehow my review did not go through. Now I just have to write it again. Ari was a great photographer! I am so glad that I went on this photography tour with him. I was on a business trip to London and Paris. I decided to add some fun at the end of the business trip. The weather was kind of lousy at the end of October. When I arrived in Paris, it was already getting dark. Somehow Ari was able to take great photos even when it was grey and dark. We visited many beautiful parts of Paris. I looked cute in the photos. He sent loads of them. After I downloaded the files, I looked at the photos and almost wanted to kiss myself. Wow!
Our photographer was Ari - very unassuming and quiet - till he got his camera out!! Then he put us through our paces and took a lot of creative and innovative photos. If you want to take stale photos of the usual monuments then skip this tour. If you want MEMORABLE visual records of a trip then book this.
Very happy with Ari and recommend him wholeheartedly.
Our photographer was Anne-Sylvaine MARRE-NOEL... This lady is so amazingly nice n cooperative.. She showed us a lot in Paris.. We walked with her n took photos.. She's really professional and beyond amazing... I simply recommend for everyone to book a photography session with her... Am so pleased :)
Our photographer was Aaricia Varanda. She was wonderful! I can't say enough about how great every picture turned out. She really has an eye for what will turn out to be a beautiful picture. You can't go wrong by asking for her if that is possible. Our pictures were taken in gardens and if front of the monuments and other famous buildings in Paris. She even found a huge sign in one of the gardens that had our initials right next to each other that she had us stand next to. Beautiful! Thank you again Viator for a great tour.
Ari Aris was absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend this tour, especially for parents traveling with teens. I took my daughter and Ari with my okay made the 2 plus almost 3 hours all about her. Photo locations included the Palace Garden, the Louvre, along the Seine, shots from below and above the bridges, along cafe covered streets, etc. Ari made her feel as if she was the center of the universe and this was her official Paris photo shoot - I even made a few photos as well. It was a very quick turnaround to get the link to download the photos and they were fabulous. Cannot recommend Ari or this tour enough - well worth the money spent for the exceptional memories. Thanks Ari!
We had a wonderful experience! Our photographer Anne was super nice and fun. The pictures are wonderful, Anne was able to capture a lot of natural moments, like the face of my wife seeing the Eiffel Tower for the first time, so we are never going to forget this tour. We had a lot of fun and she even recommended places to eat and things to do, and all the recommendations were good. Thank you Anne!
This was one of the best experiences that we had in Paris!! We would like to recommend this to everybody, and especially we would like to recommend Aristeidis Bafaloukas, who was our photographer. We are sure that Aristeidis one of the finest and most talented photographers in Paris. He is a magician with a camera. My husband and I could not have been happier. As a person, he is friendly, supportive and always smiling. Professionally, he does his job with upmost respect and the post-work was beyond excellence. THANKS Aristeidis!!
Great tour and Aaricia was a pleasure to work with and provided us with beautiful pictures, as well as the best sherbert in Paris- Berthillion!!!
Our photographer David met us outside La Comedie Francaisé, just as the itiniary said.
To make the most out of this experience, we dressed up and really looked forward to having our pictures taken together!
David was amazing! It was raining that morning, and during our walk we experienced sun, overclouded weather, pouring rain and some light rain.. just about every kind of weather. David made sure all of our photos were perfect! He looked around and found different settings we could use, and he even used the reflections in the rainpuddles! We are so happy!
We received the photos by email two days after our tour, and they will forever be a loved memory of our trip to Paris!
I would recommend a few things:
1. dress for the occasion, you will love the pictures even more!
2. book a morning trip, less people around to be in the way of your photos
3. consider the weather- we knew it would rain, so we bought an adorable paris umbrella. It was lovely in out photos!
Thank you so much David!
My photographer was excellent and I am pleased with the pictures. It was a wonderful experience. I look forward to doing it again. I only wish it were available in London as well.
We went on this tour yesterday and my boyfriend and I couldn't have been any happier with Michel. We had so much fun and Michel made us feel incredibly comfortable. He had told us he would send us a few low resolution pictures that night and the high resolution ones in about a week. We had the low resolution ones before bed and when we woke up we had the file of high resolution ones. I have been taking all of the pictures in our trip so far so it was nice to have someone take pictures for us. It was literally a highlight of our trip. I would 100 recommend this to anyone.
