My husband and I traveled to Paris in June 2017. While researching fun things to do, I found photos done by the Paris Photographer and knew I just had to have these kinds of photos. I contacted Fran's... office and received a quick response that they were able to fit us in with Ioana during our trip. The scheduling was effortless, and really was the icing on the cake of our trip. We met up with Ioana and instantly felt a connection. She was so friendly, and really worked with us to get the best shots possible. Her talent and expertise made our photos so glamorous and it looks like we're the only people there. The hard part now is choosing which ones we want to keep!! If you have the chance to take photos with Fran or Ioana, I highly recommend it. These are priceless memories I will always cherish ... and I would definitely work with The Paris Photographer again!!! Thank you, Ioana! You really helped make a dream come true! See More

The theme of the day with Fran was "above and beyond". From dealing with weather issues to once-a-year travel issues due to government officials being in town, Fran went above and beyond. Fran is a tr...ue master of his craft. We had poor weather throughout the day, but you wouldn't know that by looking at our photos. His ability with the camera was basically magic compared to the weather we dealt with. In addition to a mastery of the camera, Fran also has an in depth knowledge of France. If we wanted hot chocolate, he knew the best place. If we needed transportation, he knew whether Uber, a cab, or bus would be best. We felt completely comfortable with Fran directing us around various locations. He always had a shot in his mind and knew exactly how to place us to execute the shot. That said, if we had a shot we wanted, he was able to quickly adjust and execute the shot. He completely exceeded our expectations. Our photo shoot was for our 5th Anniversary and it was an amazing experience with photos and memories to last a lifetime. See More

I highly recommend the Paris Photographers and Iona to work with!

My fiance surprised me with a proposal in Paris and very little notice, we decided to take engagement photos! Within a span of 24, The Paris Photographer group helped us with the booking of a session! The money was well spent, because the photos turned out so beautiful!! We did not regret paying for the Sunrise Session (the lighting made us more photogenic!)

Iona was our photographer... she was so kind, so lovely to work with. Iona went above and beyond for us, she brought champagne flutes for us to use as props! Iona also negotiated with an Uber driver to help us retrieve our Iphone! Can you believe that? Thank you soooo much Iona.

At the end of the session, we had about 800 photos for us to chose from!

Superb!!! You simply cannot go wrong; rain, overcast or shine, you will walk away with the most amazing pictures and have learned a lot about the city along the way. The whole team is friendly, comfor...table, knowledgeable, and professional with the right amount of charisma. Every detail was worked out timely and above expectations! Fran is a remarkable person and photographer whose dynamic personality kindly and effectively navigated the Paris scenes to get the best angles with no one else in view! He is also so fun and engaging that he had us smiling and laughing throughout our session which translated into such genuine smiles!

My husband and I went to Paris to run the Paris marathon. We knew this was a once in a lifetime trip for our family and we knew we wanted some professional photographs. I was nervous coming from another country, but the communication was a breeze and I am grateful for the ease of everything. We didn't have to do anything other than show up and a have a great time! We felt very safe and well taken care of. We started the morning with a couples photo shoot where we felt like newlyweds again (we've been married 18 years!) & then collected our children for a family photo session. Sooooooo glad we did!

I specifically remember a bride and groom who were taking pictures remark on how they wished they had booked Fran while watching us getting whisked around to all the great creative locations and being instructed on some truly elegant poses!

Fran was also ridiculously amazing with our three children (12, 10, 7) and captured the true essence of their personalities in such a way I haven't encountered before. He really made the city come alive for our family and we will enjoy these pictures for a lifetime! Cheers Fran!! ♥

Just days before my (brand new) fiancé and I were scheduled to leave for Paris I was scrolling through Facebook and saw incredible photos of another couples engagement session in Paris. Prior to these photos I had been quoted various times saying “i will not be taking engagement photos” but I was so blown away that I immediately knew I had to message the couple to request the details of the mystery photographer. The couple had nothing but great things to say about their photographer, Fran, and their overall experience so I decided to reach out to Fran and his team directly.

From the first interaction with The Paris Photographer team I was impressed. Not only were they thorough and timely in answering all of my questions, but they were extremely thoughtful in their approach. From taking time to understand my fiancé and I as a couple to guiding us through the registration process, the process couldn’t have been more seamless.

During our engagement session Fran was waiting and ready to explain what to expect throughout the 2 hour session. He made us feel comfortable in front of his lens and guided us through the various poses with ease (as we had never done a session together, we hadn’t come prepared with poses, so this was great!). He also worked very quickly throughout the different locations and poses, so we felt it was worth every penny. We couldn’t wait to get our first looks back and have so much fun sharing these memories with our friends and family. Thank you to The Paris Photographer team especially to Fran for your incredible work in capturing this very special time in our lives!

I can’t express enough how amazing Fran and his team are. We decided for our 1-year wedding anniversary we wanted to travel to the romantic city of Paris. While browsing Instagram, I saw a dreamy phot...o of a couple in front of the Eiffel Tower. I knew right then I wanted my husband and me in front of Fran’s lens! From beginning to end, the process was seamlessly executed by him team. They quickly responded to my inquiry and let me know which dates were available. Not only that, they let us know which times of the day would produce the most beautiful backgrounds of the city. We booked a two-hour sunrise shoot. Prior to our shoot, we were able to chat with Fran about wardrobe choices, props, and other details for the day of. We felt valued each step of the way up until the day of our shoot. Here’s where the magic really happened. Fran spent well over 2 hours on our shoot and never once rushed us. He made us feel extremely comfortable every step of the way – he helped us to laugh, kiss, pout, smile, and simply interact as if we were on our first date again. Our first wardrobe choice was our wedding day attire. Fran gave us a second chance at recreating our wedding photos, and to say we were beyond pleased with the outcome would be an understatement. Lastly, he even bought us a little gift of macaroons from his favorite café. J Thank you Fran and team for making our Parisian dreams come true! See More

We just got back from our trip to Paris where we had a photo session with Ioana from The Paris Photographer while celebrating our daughter's first birthday. We had the most amazing time!!! Ioana was s...o sweet and friendly and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She captured exactly what we were hoping for and so much more! She told us exactly how to pose yet let us be fluid within the poses to convey a more natural, yet professional look. This was the first time my husband has ever enjoyed having his picture taken and that says A LOT! We are so in love with the product Ioana provided that we ended up buying every single photo because we simply couldn't choose a favorite. I will be recommending her services to all of my friends and family who find themselves visiting Paris in the future. Every time I sent an email, even if it was late at night, I would wake up to a response in my inbox from one of the studio managers- promptness at it's finest! I was so thankful to have all of my questions answered so quickly and efficiently. Working with everyone affiliated with The Paris Photographer was an absolute joy. We are so impressed with them and with their talent and are thankful to have such a special memory captured so beautifully!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! See More

To be honest, my fiancé set everything up, so I didn't know what to expect. She'd been following The Paris Photographer on Instagram for months, so I figured she knew what she was doing when she aske...d me if I would be open to engagement photos in Paris. I was very happy once we met Fran. Not only had he made things so easy for my fiancé from a scheduling perspective, but he was really laid back and easy to work with during our shoot. We're not the most photogenic couple, but the images he captured for us are incredible and will be hanging on the walls of our home for years to come. He also is a pretty fun guy to spend the morning with, and we enjoyed our session immensely (even if it was freezing!). I highly recommend The Paris Photographer if you're looking for unique images to capture lifelong memories in Paris. See More

Taking family photos is always stressful but doing it in another country (we are from the States) is even more stressful. The Paris Photographer relieved us of that stress by being so professional, e...fficient, and communicative during the entire process. We met with Ioana our photographer in Paris and she was a dream! She was extremely patient and friendly especially with our three kids. She directed us in what angles to take and what would make the best poses and even the kids cooperated because she was so gentle and patient with them. When we arrived at the Eiffel Tower to take photos and she saw a huge crane on the side, she was calm and managed to still get amazing shots with our family and the Eiffel and the edited photos show no signs of construction or cranes at all! Ioana took her time with us even though we had two locations and timing was tight. We never felt rushed at all. Once we selected the images, they were super quick to send over the edited versions and have always been professional and friendly. We enjoyed our experience with The Paris Photographer and we recommend them to anyone who is looking for high quality memories captured in Paris. Thank you for the beautiful photos Ioana! See More

Working with Fran for our Paris session was a wonderful experience. He was quite accommodating to our ideas, but honestly, most of his were better anyway. He and his team were very helpful with the session set-up, even offering referrals for my wife to have her hair and makeup done early enough for a sunrise session. He was very friendly and knowledgeable which made the time go by pretty quickly. He also related very well with our kids and kept them surprisingly engaged in the photos, which can be difficult with young children. Ultimately we ended up with a ton of great photographs, and the most difficult part of the whole process was just narrowing down our favorites. All in all a great experience and highly recommended.

We had a wonderful time with Fran during our honeymoon photo session in Paris. The experience itself was great, and it was made even better with Fran, who is an amazing photographer. He knows all the ...right angles and spots to get the most beautiful photos of Paris. Fran is so passionate about what he does and it shows in all his photos!

Fran was very efficient, making sure we got all the photos that we wanted. He even added 1 more location at a cafe while we were having a quick morning snack. He is also very entertaining and he made it easy for us to keep our energy up throughout our 3-hour shoot. Fran also gave the proper amount of direction to help us pose, and he was really good at asking people to stay out of the background. It was really cold outside, but Fran did his best to make sure we were comfortable (hot chocolate in between locations, constantly reminding us to wear our coats between takes, etc). It was one of our most memorable mornings in Paris.

The team is very professional. Booking was easy, from first contact all the way to after the photo session. The team was responsive and accommodating. We received a link to the full set of photos right after the shoot!

I would highly recommend The Paris Photographer and I would love to work with them again one day!

I can highly recommend The Paris Photographer, and was thrilled with the entire experience that my partner Laura and I had with Fran and his team. From beginning to end, I genuinely felt like I was wo...rking with a group of friends rather than your usual photographer. The process was explained very clearly and we were able to organise the perfect photoshoot. I particularly liked using the pintrest inspiration boards and our consultation with Fran prior to flying over for our holiday and photoshoot. The photoshoot was magical and we got to enjoy the best Paris had to offer! Fran was helpful in suggesting locations and poses in order to get the best shots! Our photos were sent through on the same day of our shoot for us to choose from, selecting our favourites was very hard as there was so many! We cannot thank Fran and the team enough for making our first time in Paris celebrating our engagement memorable and magical! See More

Both, my husband and I, are professional photographers in Puerto Rico. Each anniversary we have a photoshoot done in a part of the world with a local photographer and when we came to the conclusion we were going to Paris we knew that we wanted the best photographer, and Fran Boloni was the one!! The experience with him was great; before, during and after the session! He was funny, kind, creative, talkative, comprehensive and ALWAYS gave the extra mile for us. Not only we fell in love with him and the final pictures, but also my parents! I would recommend his services to anyone who wanted a photoshoot done in Paris, for us, he was the highlight of our whole trip. Thank you so much Fran! See More

My wife Karen and I contacted The Paris Photographer team for our Paris honeymoon session. And we are so glad we did!
Fran proved to be an excellent professional while also being very sympathetic towa...rds what we wanted for our shoot. Prior to the session we discussed our ideas over email, and on the day of the shoot he made sure we checked off every one of them before we wrapped it up.
He is very attentive to detail and clear in communicating his ideas to help us get the perfect shot. He made us feel very comfortable all throughout the photo shoot and helped us have fun in the process. The results were amazing pictures with very natural expressions.
Kudos as well to all the Studio Staff, who were prompt to respond all our questions and emails and gave the perfect image of professionalism altogether.
We are extremely happy with Fran & the whole team and highly recommend them for your Paris photo shoot!

My fiancé had been following the Paris photographer for quite some time on instagram. When I proposed, and a few months later we decided to travel to Paris, we thought hey wouldn’t it be great if the ...Paris photographer could do our engagement shoot while we’re there?! We reached out and Fran and his entire team were so helpful and professional from the beginning. We, being relatively new to session photography were guided through choosing locations, themes and looks that we wanted. It also helped that my fiancé had quite the repertoire of poses saved away on instagram! Communication with Fran was also super easy. On the morning of, we met Fran at a cafe across the Trocadero and got to know each other a bit over some cappuccinos. Next thing we knew we were posing on the Trocadero at sunrise with the Eiffel Tower as a back drop! Fran was so very supportive and mindful of all of our details and so particular to get the most breathtaking shots. He did all this while also being super quick and so friendly and pleasant. While walking to the Louvre we even got a brief walking tour of Paris! It seemed like Fran knew the exact time and places to be to get great pictures with minimal crowd in the background. We absolutely loved our session and were so glad to have had the opportunity to work with Fran! We wish he could shoot our wedding!! See More

We had an amazing experience with Fran. When I saw his pictures, I didn't believe that ours could look as beautiful as the ones on the web, as we have never hired a photographer before. I was so surpr...ised to see the amazing results. Fran made us feel comfortable and relaxed, so that we could enjoy this experience. The results are amazing pictures, with a stunning scenery and a happy couple.
Fran went the extra mile and delivered much more than we expected. In addition, we got acquainted with a very nice and warm person, a photographer who loves his job and whose eyes are restlessly on the hunt for the best light and the best angle for a perfect shot.
I can unreservedly recommend Fran and cannot think of a better person to do this job. Needless to say, the booking, arrangements, payments, etc. went smooth without any issue.

My husband and I had an amazing experience with Fran from The Paris Photographer for our 1 year wedding anniversary photo shoot in Paris last week. Our experience with The Paris Photographer was excep...tional from start to finish. Contacting The Paris Photographer via their website contact page was quick and easy, and I heard back from them quickly to book our experience. Fran and his team were all very helpful when we were planning our photo shoot via email (as we live in Canada). Fran was equally helpful when we arrived in Paris. He sent me an email the day before our photo shoot, and touched base about some last minute details. When we met Fran on the day of our shoot he was very kind, approachable and easy to talk to. He was also very excited to learn about us as a couple, and was super excited to take magical photos for us! He was a great photographer to work with, and is very passionate about what he does. He made sure we got all of the photographs we wanted to celebrate our anniversary. He went above and beyond with everything from start to finish! I recommend working with Fran, and am looking forward to working with him again! See More

I've always dreamed of getting a set of photos taken in Paris and when my husband and I decided to go to Paris as part of our honeymoon, I knew that this was my chance! Fran and The Paris Photographer... were very professional, helpful and super efficient in replying. The entire process from enquiring about the prices/dates to selecting our final set of photos for editing was very easy and of course the photos themselves are gorgeous! Without a doubt, Fran is an excellent photographer and his eye for great shots and his clear instructions (for those lovely poses!) were very helpful as well! :) See More

I traveled to Paris for the very first time in September 2017. I was traveling alone so I was ecstatic when I was able to book a photoshoot with Ioana to capture my experience in this beautiful city. ...I am so glad I got the opportunity to work with Ioana. Not only is she crazy talented and take breathtaking photographs, she was so friendly, warm and kind.

It was pretty cold and gloomy the day of my shoot, but Ioana was still able to execute the day perfectly and provided me with the most epic photos by the eiffel tower! It even started sprinkling towards the second half of my shoot, but she never paused for a second. I have amazing photos in Saint Germain with my trench jacket and Prada shades on that worked perfectly with the sudden change of weather. You cannot even tell the weather was gloomy in the photos. Iona was always checking on me, making sure I wasn't freezing and even gave me her scarf to wear in between shots. So so sweet!

I had such a wonderful time with Ioana and so thankful I have so many beautiful photos to remind Paris by. I have received so many compliments on how great these photos are! If I am ever back in Paris, I would love to work with Ioana again. Hopefully next time with my boyfriend :). Thank you Ioana!

Good night Paris!

We photographers tend do underestimate the importance of clean and cute portraits. We focus on creativity, uniqueness and romance. But you want to have a beautiful portrait to frame it and offer it as a gift to your parents.
