Paris is naturally considered a romantic city. Being in the city and watching how different things unfold along the streets naturally makes your visit romantic. The city houses a gorgeous setting of exciting scenic bridges and historic monuments that will definitely ignite a desire to keep visiting the city at all times. Below is a list of basic things to do in Paris for couples.
Take her for High tea at the Ritz
Consider taking her for High tea in one of the posh settings in Paris. The best destination should be surrounded with priceless antiques, sparkling crystal and polished silver. At Ritz, you will be served gourmet tea or thick hot chocolate together with tiny sandwiches, delectable pastries and scones. It is also the perfect destination where you will get an opportunity to steal a few kisses from her without interference from the polite staff.
Consider taking her to a crowded bistro
You can take her to a crowded bistro and assume that you are the only couple around. Popular destinations to visit include the Le Bistrot Paul-Bert and the Fish, La Boissonerie.
Bring her for Champagne at Flute
Flute is a tiny venue with a naughty feel just off de l’Etoile. You can enjoy your champagne cocktail on the red velour banquette or have a more intimate time on the quiet alcove upstairs. These services are offered at reasonable prices and those visiting on Tuesday from (5-8pm) have an opportunity to get two drinks at the price of one. Apart from the dozens of champagne and gourmet appetizers served, you can dance with her in the live jazz that is available every Wednesday night.
Walk her around at the Luxembourg Gardens
Luxembourg Gardens are always magnificent at all times of the year. The circuit of the Gardens is close to a mile and doable regardless of the weather. You can complete the walk by taking her to Café Tournon or Au Petit Suisse for mulled wine.
Take her for dinner at Dame du Canton
This vintage wooden barge provides you with an opportunity to spice up your romance in the evening. Live world music is played and traditional French dishes served in a lantern-lit and cozy restaurant. However, it is critical to confirm that your date is not affected with sea sickness since this would end your romantic evening prematurely.
Buy her Wine and Oysters at Le Baron Rouge
This bar provides you with an opportunity to cram against each other in an intimate way. You will enjoy soft music on a quiet table with candlelight. You will enjoy being served a glass of Burgundy and a platter of charcuterie and cheese. Oysters are also available on chilly weekends and you can enjoy picking them up with your date along the sidewalk.
Take your date for a chocolate massage at the Four Seasons
You can impress her with a chocolate spa treatment instead of buying her traditional boxes of chocolate. She will enjoy a chocolate-mint body scrub, Swiss toffee and chocolate body wrap and cocoa oil deep tissue massage. This could take close to three hours but will definitely leave her without any guilt of calorie counting.
The list of things to do in Paris for couples is long and cannot be exhausted. The beauty in Paris in an enjoyment you will definitely yearn to experience with your date.
As cliche as is may be Paris, is truly the City of Romance. That's why so many couples still get engaged in this wonderful city. On average at the top of the Eiffel Tower, there are 9 proposals per hour. Maybe the best location in the world for a guaranteed, Yes!
Sadly all too often couples leave with a fleeting memory of a momentous moment in their lives.
It's the perfect time to have an engagement portrait session while you are in Paris. That's just what Darius thought when he contacted me.
While on their Paris vacation Darius decided to propose to his friend and have a surprise engagement session while they were here.
Now the beautiful bride-to-be has photos where she can always remember one of the most special moments of her life.
I received and email from Wan about 2 weeks before her family trip to Paris and she told me that it would be their first time visiting and that they were coming with 2 young children.
I can't think of a better time to visit Paris with a young family than in December. Paris is filled with roasted chestnuts, iceskating rinks, the famous window displays featuring dancing puppets at the Galeries Lafayette, Christmas markets featuring great regional French cuisine, and of course, Santa's Sleigh parked on the Champs-Élysées.
She wanted to take some photos of her and her family enjoying Paris so that she could have images of them with great architectural backdrops and she choose the Highlights of Paris route, which is about 3 hours walking from monument to monument. Perfect for her to get images of her family all around Paris and she could forget about obsessing over photo's where she would be left out more often than not.
This was a great family to photograph, they had a great interaction together and you could tell they were having a great time in Paris. I took both posed and candid images of them, my favorite ones where the candids of them enjoying an early morning stroll thought the Tuileries garden.
I started Photo Perfect Paris to combine my love of photography with my love of Paris and as a way to share my passion with others.
