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.

Ari was wonderful, he was very nice and flexible. I loved every single one of the pictures he took. I totally recommend him for a tour and Paris. The pictures made it all even more special. Thanks ARi
Our Experience was excellent .... Our Photographer was Aaricia and she was very good.. We highly recommend her.........
Worth it! Michel was very nice. We started at le comedie francie and worked our way south past notre dame. Lots of fun/unique pics! We didnt get any close ups w the eiffel tower but that was fine for us. Specify a route when booking if Eiffel is a must. Got pics next day. Better than just selfies!
We met with Michel early. From the beginning you can just feel such a positive vibe coming from him. We didn't know what to expect but he is such a nice guy that he broke the ice immediately and made us feel comfortable. Not only was he awesome but our Paris pictures turned out amazing! Def recommen
Our photographer was Aaricia, she was subbing for David Law who was mentioned couple of times in other reviews. Both of them were kind enough and agreed before the tour to meet up 30 min earlier to accommodate our dinner reservation. The experience was lovely, we were pooped from the previous tour and casually sat down to have a cup of espresso. Aaricia talked to us about what type of pictures we are looking for and casually start snapping some pictures while we were drinking coffee. Little do I know that was the picture that we fall in love with. The tour is so unique in its way, that this become the signature of our visit in Paris. And now that we think of it, to have a personal professional photographer for couple of hours to capture our 20 year anniversary or any other special occasion that you are celebrating, is really the best way to celebrate. Aaricia is a free lance fashion photographer and is a true professional. This tour is THE hidden gem and the breath of fresh air in a city full of normal tourist traps. Not that this was not designed for tourists, but this is a unique a different way that most of the tourists would not think of. By the end, we had over 250 pictures taken. Well, I know many of them are continuous shots and I was hoping for just a couple of a good ones. And we end up having many great shots that we can't wait to hang on the wall. Thank you Aaricia.....
I recommend this tour to any one going to Paris. We got some beautiful pictures and it's so nice to have my husband and myself in pictures together. David is awesome. Really goes the extra mile to make sure you get the best pictures possible and in the spots you want them taken in. It's hard to pick a favorite but I guess it would have to be the one of both of us in front of the Eiffel Tower. But they are ALL GOOD! DAVID IS AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER, VERY PLEASANT AND EAGER TO GET THE PERFECT PHOTO'S FOR YOU. We just couldn't be happier.
The tour was amazing! We laughed for 2 fun hours while David took photos. After only hours later and we started receiving pictures and loved them
David Law is AMAZING! He was right there, waiting to meet us under the most beautiful Eiffel Tower! We walked along the park, took many shots around the Tower, by the Seine River, Pont des Arts and Louvre. Creative photos, that we can not decide which ones we want to print probably all of them!
David, thank you so much for everything you did for us. To make us feel comfortable enough, to laugh, to pose for crazy pictures, to help out with my huge bag too!!
We got a taste of some pictures on the same day! I wish I had enough internet connection to review his amazing work same day, but it took me longer than I thought ... none of the less, 5 Stars, AAAAA for his creative mind and joyful personality!
Ce fut un plaisir de travailler avec vous David !
Success to you!!!

A.ma.zing! Our photographer was a typical Parisian rock star and very accommodating. He knew awesome angles and made us feel at ease. He would also recommend poses and made our afternoon a lot of fun! Pics are awesome! I took the pics with my mom and it is going to be an unforgetable memory!
Michel Plason was our photographer. We had a change in our flight and he accommodated our last minute changes. He was very professional and knowledgeable about the areas in Paris and he made out tour very special. I had my mother, husband and our 10 month old baby boy with us. He made sure we had the best pictures at the best scenarios. I highly recommend Michel and will certainly stay in touch for our next trip to Paris.
David our photographer was awesome. Our pictures are great and both my daughter and I had a ton of fun! We now have wonderful pictures of our time in Paris and memories of a great day.
Michael our photographer made our day! He not only was friendly and attentive but funny and caring! He made sure we captured every memory possible! He went above and beyond for us and captured memories that would last a lifetime! He accomadated our every need and wish with a smile!
