Every vacation and itinerary is different, so select the session that works best for you and then contact me to work out the best date and time for your proposal.

About a month before your session date, I'll send you a questionnaire that helps me customize your session so that your pictures truly reflect your precious relationship!

Then we decide upon a perfect date and time to have a secret video chat about two to three weeks before you arrive in Paris so we can dig into the juicy details and make sure that you know exactly what to do, when to do it, and how I will capture the big YES!

Can this be a complete surprise?

I have some excellent tried and true options for how everything will play out right up to the moment you get down on one knee! We will plan every last detail from exactly where you will stand, how you can spot me amongst the other tourists (HINT: I always wear something that stands out), and if, how, and when we interact mere seconds before. If you have any inkling there is some suspicion, don't even worry! I've got great ideas on how to throw your partner off the scent!

questions

frequently asked

I want to add a proposal to a session

Has your significant other already booked a session with me? Are you thinking this might be the perfect opportunity to pop the question? Oh, I'm right there with you, my friend! Once I get everything planned out with your partner, we can get to planning this awesome add-on to your Paris photo shoot! Don't you worry, this isn't my first rodeo! I've gotten pretty good at playing innocent and acting like we've never met! It'll be great! I can't wait!

questions

frequently asked

Do you speak english?

Don't worry, you don't have to know French for this session! Although I've lived in Paris for 10 years, I'm actually American! So everything will be in English. But if you want to practice any of your favorite phrases or learn some key words that would be glad to speak with you in French from time to time. And for your time in Paris without me, don't you worry! I'll be sending you some helpful tips on how to engage with French people in your Paris Proposal Guide!

questions

frequently asked

What if there's rain?

The weather is so fickle in Paris! Even if the forecast shows a 100% chance of rain, we can't tell until the morning of. I can definitely be flexible with you, but if your itinerary is packed, take a chance! We have what I call café weather. Often times, we can pop into a café, and by the time we are finished with our drinks, the shower has passed! Worst case scenario, we can always change the location! Or embrace the weather - bring a fun umbrella and sneak some romantic kisses in the rain!

questions

frequently asked

What should I wear?

I will send you a Paris Proposal Guide to help you plan with some amazing ideas and my tried and true tips for outfits that photograph well. But honestly, just be you! Everyone has their own unique style, and it’s OK to choose an outfit that expresses who you are! You don’t have to try to look a certain way or match what your friends did or what you’ve seen online. Your pictures should reflect you and your unique relationship and everything you've dreamed of for this big moment!

sound like the experience you've been dreaming of?

Her warm and bubbly personality showed from her initial response to my booking request. She made my fiancée and I feel comfortable as she directed us for the best shots we could get. After the shoot, Rachael went out of her way to give us first-time Parisian tourists a crash course of the metro system. Our pictures turned out beautiful and we look forward to linking back up on our next visit!

Rachael was an absolute pleasure to work with! Not only does she have a great eye, but she also knows how to give just enough direction to give your photos that dreamy yet candid Instagram feel! On top of that, she's super warm and friendly. We hit it off with her right off the bat, which allowed us to feel even more comfortable in front of the camera.

Rachael was absolutely amazing to work with. She was fantastic with our 21 month old (a child that never smiles) and made her smile in her photos. She has a bubbly personality and was committed to getting every shot perfect. We are absolutely in love with them and so happy we have them for the rest of our lives. Thank you Rachael for capturing our memories! We look forward to returning to Paris and getting another shoot done!

Rachael was an absolute joy to work with. She was very enthusiastic and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Taking pictures surrounded by crowds in one of the most populated attractions in the world can sound stressful, but Rachael navigated the scenery like a true pro.

"...exactly what we were hoping for and more!"

Rachael was a blast to work with. She brings enthusiasm, love, and most importantly, care for her shoots. Immediately meeting her, I knew she would be as ecstatic as myself for our shoot. I love that she is heavily experienced not only behind the lens but also with her ideas. She is very welcoming and open to ideas, which made our shoot much more collaborative. Rachael is amazing and I could not be more happier with the results.
