Get dressed for a unique experience
and explore the City of Lights at night


Paris is amazing at night. It’s not a surprise that it’s called “The City of Lights”. If you are a couple and looking to take night photos in Paris, then you are in the right place.

Below, we’ll describe our Night Photo Shoot in Paris. We’ll explain what are the pros and cons of such a photo session, as opposed to a daytime Paris photo sessions. We’ll give practical details, so that you can take the best decision about the best time to take photos and to prepare perfectly for your dream night pictures in Paris.

What is a Night Photo Shoot in Paris?

We call night photos in Paris the images taken after sunset. Sunset is the timeframe during which the natural ambient light gradually disappears and the city lights progressively turn on.

Thus, we start night photo shoots in Paris 5 to 10 minutes before the sunset. This way, we can take a few photos with the beautiful sunset light, before the nightfall.

Once the night settles, we are obliged to use external lights to compensate the lack of ambient light.

What time is sunset in Paris?

Sunset time varies depending on the season. In December it is around 5PM while in June it will be at 10PM.

Benefits of Taking Photos at Night in the City of Lights

  • Unique Images. Paris has quite a few monuments that light up during the night. The feeling of night photos can’t be described. You just have to love it.
  • The Experience. You get to explore the places at night, that otherwise perhaps you wouldn’t have explored. Just watch Midnight in Paris (if you don’t fall asleep halfway like I did …) and you’ll get an idea of how romantic the city can be at nightfall.
  • Less people around.

Disadvantages of Night Photoshoots in Paris

  • The Pace. Night photos require external lights and the time to setup for the different poses will take from the effective photography time. The result is less images than during a daytime Paris photo session.
  • The Temperature. It gets colder in the evening in Paris. During the colder months, let’s say from October to April, it can get cold and during winter it gets very cold in Paris. Make sure that you can endure
  • The Cost. Night photosessions require a mandatory assistant that helps with lights. The assistant comes at an additional price per hour of photography.
  • Less dynamic poses. Night photography requires the subjects to stand still for a few seconds, much more than during daytime photos. The variety of poses and hence images is lower than during daytime photo shoots.

Choose a dress for impact. Most of the background that we’ll be using for the pictures will be dark. This is the reason why strong and bright colors such as: red, blue, green are the best choices.
