Personable. Talented. Professional.
This was our first time taking professional pictures as a family and wanted to make sure we would get something “frame-worthy” out of it. We explored several photographers but felt that Marie was the most responsive and genuine in her communication and we felt that she understood what we were going for.
When we arrived in Paris, Marie was proactive in touching base with us to solidify plans. On the day of, she was prompt and prepared. And by the end of the day we felt like we had made a new friend – which was important to us.
Just a couple of days after our time with Marie we had a few sample

Coming from overseas and only having a few days in Paris, we didn’t know where to begin looking for a photographer for our engagement pictures. I came across Marie and decided to reach out. From the very beginning of the process she took the time to explain everything up front. She was quick with her communication and always answered my questions. My fiance and I were a bit nervous about having the “skill” to pose in our shots, but once we began we all of a sudden felt like we knew what we were doing. Marie made us feel comfortable, relaxed, and most importantly welcomed. The morning of the shoot was on and off rain, and she immediately suggested covered

Rachel C.

Good evening Marie!
Last days I have been sending the link and photos all around the world – photographies been seen in Australia, Canada, Algerie, Latvia, of course, France; I am so excited about the work you did! They are excellent!!!
It was a pleasure to be together with you in our wedding day and for sure I will recommend you for our friends and people we know.
We wish you a bright and succesful career and future,
everything the best for you Marie
in career, health, love and life

Hi Marie, sorry it took a bit to respond but we’re just now getting back home to the US. Elizabeth and I want to both thank you for the amazing job you Did, we’re just now really taking the time to see our pictures and absollove them. We are tremendously thankful for your work.

Jose S.

My husband and I wanted to document my 50th birthday, which we celebrated in Paris. We loved working with Marie. She was very friendly and responsive, and made being in front of the camera less awkward! Love, love, love the photos! Will treasure them forever!

Nancy A.

Thanks Marie, These are fantastic photos! We will contact you for next year, as we are very impressed. Thanks again!

Michael H.

Marie was an excellent choice for our engagement shoot in Paris. She was very professional in every aspect and speaks excellent English as well. She spent a few years living in NYC and is very easy to work with. Marie knows the city very well and has knowledge of some great places that produce awesome photos. Her rates are extremely reasonable and I would hire her again in a second if the chance presents it. Look no further for all of your photo needs in Paris.

Paul PJ Y.

Thank you!  These photos are incredible!
We’re having so much fun sharing these with family and friends.  You are very talented.

Trevor P.

Oui, Oui, Marie. Magnifique! Whispering to my bride that I was taking her to breakfast, on Saturday, in Paris. Marie met us before sunrise and immediately set us at ease; then shared our walk to petit déjeuner à Paris. Marie captured us in the square, along the streets, crossing the bridge, strolling the banks of the Seine, in masterful composition. She’s a professional behind the lens and artfully sees the result that captures the emotion of l’art de vivre. We’ll always have Paris! Reconnaissant pour toujours.

Rand D.

Stop reading reviews and book Marie. JUST DO IT.
Marie was so easy to work with. She is very friendly, promptly answers any questions you may have, and gives great direction on what to do during the photoshoot. She has dedication and passion for what she does; it truly shows. During our photoshoot, it began to rain and Marie said she has no issue waiting it out. We were lucky enough that the rain stopped and made for gorgeous photos with reflections from the puddles. The photos speak for themselves. Our family and friends were blown away. They are a perfect mix of candids and magazine-like photos.
If you are not from France and are worrisome about booking

Danielle K.

We had such an amazing time with Marie! She was so accommodating and went out of her way to rearrange her schedule when the weather forecast changed. She also helped us find the exact photo location we wanted to shoot at in Luxembourg Gardens simply from a picture and no other information. Her rates were the most reasonable out of all the photographers I researched and we had a really fun time shooting with her. She really put us at ease and our personality really showed in the pictures she took. Would highly recommend to anybody!!

Joe C.

Oh. My. Goodness!! I love them!!!!! Wow…I’m amazed they turned out so well. You really captured some incredible moments. Thank you for being so great to work with. I’m so happy we went with you and you are truly talented!!! The one of Logan kissing Madeleine on the head is seriously making my heart burst!!! I can’t put into word how happy this photo makes me. Thank you so much for all your talent and hard work!!!

Ann Marie M.

Thank you Marie! The photos are wonderful! LOVE the spots you found. We had a great time with you and love our photos ♥

Michelle C.

Wow!!!! I am in love with them!! Can’t wait to see the others. Thank you so much for today! marie, thank you SO MUCH! i am blown away by the photos!!

Elena M.

If you are looking for a great quality photographer in Paris, look no further. I contacted Marie when I decided to propose to my girlfriend (now fiancée), to document the whole thing. She helped with the whole planning process, suggesting locations and times that would work best. When the day came, she took some of the most beautiful shots, and got to know us, which made us look more comfortable in the photographs. The end products were spectacular and with such reasonable rates I am surprised that she isn’t booked fully every day. An absolute pleasure from beginning to end, and I can not speak highly enough of her.

Ronan K.

Marie is amazing! My fiancé and I had a blast with her during our trip to Paris. She is so easy going, made the day so much fun! She was always helping with creating poses that were natural, comfortable, and photogenic. She also endulged my fiancé’s need for some goofy picture. 🙂
Aside from the day, she got our photos back to us very quickly! We had our “sneak peak” the evening of the shoot, as well as entire album after a week.
We couldn’t recommend Marie enough!

Laura B.

Hi Marie, I LOVE, LOVE, (Amore!) the pictures you took!! Look so great! Thank you SO much for doing them!! We had so much fun, and you were so nice and easy going, it was a great day! We are putting them on our Christmas card this year for our friends and family!
Thanks again! Hopefully our paths cross again! We are going to Italy in June next year..hey you never know maybe you’ll be there!! Thanks again!

Kristyne B.

As part of our family celebration in Provence, we booked a photo shoot with Marie. She is fluent in English, easy to work with, the photos were delivered promptly and most importantly, they were beautiful! This makes the best souvenir of our trip, the images that will carry our memories always! Highly recommended.

Penelope C.

Marie is a great photographer! We absolutely love our photos!! She was very friendly, kind, and personable to work with. She speaks fluent English and had excellent communication through quick responses to emails. If we are ever in Paris again we wouldn’t hesitate to book another photo session with her!

Josh C.

Marie was hands down the best decision we made on our trip! We surprised our mother with a photo session on the last day of our trip, and Marie was more than happy to learn all about our our mother/daughter trip and make it such a fun 1.5 hours! She gave us some great recommendations on locations and put up with our goofy antics. HIGHLY, highly recommend to anyone looking for a photographer!

Brooke A.

We were in Paris for 5 days in August and arranged to have Marie shoot our engagement photos. Marie was awesome! She was so nice and kind, and we felt very natural and comfortable around her when she was taking photos of us. We spent 2 hours with her, and we were able to shoot in all of the locations that I wanted (shots of the Eiffel Tower, Trocadero, the Louvre, the love lock bridge, and the Tuileries Gardens). She was also super quick in delivering the photos – we received sneak peaks the night of our shoot, and received all of our photos within a couple of weeks! And the photos are *Amazing*. I absolutely love all of our

Rosalia T.

Bonjour Marie! Thank you so much for being prompt with our pictures. They look AMAZING! We can’t wait to share it with our friends and family! I hope you are doing great. We will keep you updated with our pictures of the wedding as they time comes! Thank you, Elease

Elease L.

Marie, I just wanted to thank you again for being such a huge part of making our special day extra special. Vanessa and I absolutely love the photos, we can definitely tell it’s not just photography for you but a true art. We are forever grateful. You have been so wonderful to us and We appreciate your talent! We should have gotten a selfie with you !! Merci! Thank you so much !

Neil D.

My friends and I booked Marie to shoot us before a big event at the Palace of Versailles and it was an absolute joy to be photographed by her. She navigated us around Versailles and did her best to persuade some palace staff to get us into restricted areas—truly above and beyond the call of duty. Even though that didn’t work we ended up with gorgeous photos. I can’t recommend her enough! Thank you, Marie!

Cheryll D.

We had the best experience with Marie last month. We took sunset wedding pictures in front of the Eiffel tower and they just turned out picture perfect!  We already have our favorites blown up into canvases so we can cherish the memory forever.  Thank you Marie for making it such a positive and pain free experience.  Love the Kelly’s

Karli K.

Marie is fantastic! Living in Chicago, I wanted to propose to my girlfriend in Paris and thought it would be a great idea to have the moment photographed. While researching, I came across Marie. Communication and planning was fantastic. On the day of the proposal, Marie was a pleasure to work with and follow up on photos was timely. Best of all the photos turned out wonderful. Thank you Marie for making our day special! Sarah and John

John M.

Excellent and unique experience. Marie is just formidable and so fun to work with. My fiance and I were very pleased with the work she did. She has a great knowledge of the attractions, historic and touristic places. she is really easygoing and made us feel comfortable around her. We had a great time, and she took loads of pictures for us! I would recommend this to anyone wanting a special way to document their time in Paris!

Nehmat C.

Marie was wonderful to work with. Excellent photos, great English, and very friendly. When my wife and I wanted to do an outdoor photoshoot and the weather forecast was questionable, Marie made herself available for the entire day last minute to capture the moments of good weather we had.

Jingwei L.

Looking at the photos from our Paris photo shoot & I can’t help but smile. Marie, thank you from the bottom of my heart for capturing these shots, especially in the 20° weather we had that day! I’m truly impressed & grateful to have worked with you!

Daisy B.

My boyfriend and I got engaged in Paris and Marie took amazing photos! Our family and friends were so excited that they could share the beautiful moment by viewing the pictures. I love that she gave us black & white as well as color photos. She is such a nice person and we would definitely book her again!

Malaika M.

So beautiful backgrounds and amazing Marie with her magic touch of artist: perfect ingredients for great photos!!!!

Silvia M.

My wife and I did a couple hour informal photo shoot around central Paris a few months ago. Marie was a fun to work with, easy to communicate with in French and English and put in the effort to making sure we got good pictures. She suggested places to shoot and delivered the pictures promptly and professionally online. Highly recommend her services and wish her the best.

Big D.

Marie helped me with my surprise proposal. From the first email which included much more than the normal pleasantries. She took an active interest in our story and helped plan everything to ensure the proposal went off without a hitch. I proposed to my fiance at Disneyland where Marie got the perfect shot every time. My fiance and I couldn’t be happier with the results and how special Marie made us feel. This was capped off with a photoshoot in Paris the next day which exceeded our wildest expectations. Marie made us feel like we were friends rather than clients. For great pictures and a better person, I couldn’t recommend anyone better.

Harman T.

Bonjour Marie, Thank you for putting together such a wonderful album – we both love the pictures and are thrilled with how they came out! I think we’ve been able to see the Flickr ones and download the high resolution ones as well – thank you for making both available to us. Thank you again – if there’s ever a photo sesh to be done in Paris again, we’ll reach out to you first and hope our paths cross once again!

Bret A.

Marie is the best!!! She took our engagement pictures in Paris at the end of April. She communicated with us via email (always a response within 24 hours) prior to our trip to Paris so we would sort out all details. We chose the 4 hour package so we could go to a variety of sites….Trocadero, River Seine, the Carousel, Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Love Lock Bridge, Gardens, Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower at night. Unfortunately, the night before we were supposed to take our photos, I got horrible food poisoning. Marie was able to change our shoot time so we could still take our photos. I’m so grateful for that! She’s an extremely talented photographer with reasonable rates

Jenny R.

Oh Marie those are SO beautiful! You really captured the fun, loving spirit of the wedding. I cannot tell you how incredibly happy we are with them. They are so wonderful and magical and exactly the type of pictures that we were looking for. Thank you again for capturing our day so beautifully!

Madison B.

You’ve found your photographer!! Trust me! After weeks of reading reviews and reaching out to many photographers, I found Marie and immediately knew I wanted to book her for my fiance and I’s engagement shoot! I was blown away by her beautiful work, great value, and excellent communication. She was genuinely interested in our story and making the whole experience fun and carefree. This was our first time getting professional photos taken and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. She was very kind to email back and forth regarding spots I wanted for my shoot and even suggested some great ideas I hadn’t seen. Marie is very easy to work with and an extremely kind and talented professional.

Kelly L.

Our group of 8 friends recently did a Eurotrip (4 couples). I wanted to surprise everyone with a photoshoot to capture our memories in Paris. After spending some time interviewing several photographers, I found Marie. She responded to her emails timely and chose great locations for our shoot. We all had a blast and the pictures came out great. She’s super easy to work with and her amiable personality can definitely be found in her work. I love all our candid shots and shooting with her was effortless. Thank you for making our day in Paris Marie!

David F.

For anyone on the fence about proposing abroad in Paris and finding the right photographer for the job, look no further. I spent a couple of weeks researching photographers and emailing them back and forth and from the second I communicated with Marie, I knew she would be my pick. Not only are her packages the fairest I’ve seen, the entire process of working with Marie was an absolute pleasure and put me at ease for such a big occasion. She’s quick to respond to emails and has a great deal of knowledge of where, when, and how to propose. On the day of the surprise, she was there, blending in and taking pictures. Her ability to capture that special

Nick R.

We recently had photos by Marie done during a family vacation in France. Not only was she so accommodating and flexible with the booking time/location/length prior to the shoot, she was patient, creative and kind during our shoot. Despite our preschooler constantly dancing around, and our birthday boy refusing to be held during the photos, she somehow managed to capture so much goodness. I cannot not mention that for the time and cost that she spent with us, she had over 10 sneak peaks ready the next day, and less than a week later all of our images were. There were so many, I’m still going through them. Truly incredible. If you want to capture memories in Provence forever, Marie

Emina C.

Hi Marie, Thank you! Wow, these photos are unbelievable. You captured so many sweet moments and we are so thankful. Special thanks to providing all photos in black and white and color. We already developed a couple sets of the photos to share with family and friends. Everyone has loved them. All of them admired your creativity and talents.
Thank you again for capturing such a special time for us. Please let us know if are ever in the San Francisco area!

Jane S.

Marie was such a pleasure to work with and I would definitely work with her again in the future. I reached out to her in early March to schedule an engagement photo shoot for April. Marie’s English was fantastic and she made the whole process easy for someone that was visiting Paris for the first time. I was also able to receive the photos from the shoot within one week. This was really incredible, especially for someone that is impatient (like me). The quality of the photos was amazing and my fiancé and I loved them.
Marie mostly took natural/candid photos of us, and that made the photos and the experience really genuine and special. If you are reading

David P.

Merci boucoup!! These are tre bien! We wish you were our wedding photographer a year ago! These are so good. Thank you!! We really enjoyed meeting you!

Jen H.

I was initially nervous for our photo session since I only had once chance and one day in paris to get it just right for our engagement photos. We met with Marie at 7am just like she suggested and just from the first few photographs I was absolutely confident that she is exactly who I was looking for! She made it the best experience and I left paris with the MOST amazing photos that not only met, but FAR exceeded my expectations! I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her! She is extremely talented and humble and best of all, speaks fluent english!

Shadi S.

Marie was our wedding photographer and she did a great job ! She is very professional, flexible, discreet and kind. Her pictures are really amazing ! Thank you very much for your wonderful pictures Marie !

Cécile V.

These pictures are ABSOLUTELY breathtaking!  We have only showed a couple of people and they were literally in tears!!!  I just wanted to let you know how wonderful you were to work with – you made our wedding day perfect!  Thank you so much for everything.  If you are ever in this part of the world, let us know and we’d love to show you Baltimore/DC.
Again, thank you so much and I hope we have the opportunity to work with you in the future!!!

Katlyn G.

Wow, I don’t even know where to begin with Marie. I decided I wanted to do a surprise proposal in Paris, I am from Chicago, and had no idea where to begin. After looking around for photographers Marie seemed like a perfect fit and I am glad I found her because she was able to capture the greatest moment of our lives. She helped me in so many ways, I was struggling with a sunrise setting because it is not easy to convince your fiance to be to wake up at 6:00 am on vacation and to wear a dress. Marie came to the rescue, she gave me some tips on what to say to convince my gf to wake

Camil M.

Fantastic photographer and a lovely lady who works with your ideas and make them happen. Highly recommended! Marie, thank you so much for our amazing photos from January we will need you again 🙂 ❤️

Barbara K.

Bonjour Marie! My family had such a wonderful time with you and you captured such beautiful photos of us all! We are all so thrilled and can’t thank you enough for being such a special part of our amazing family vacation! i’m so excited to print and frame so many of the images – they’re really perfect! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! If you come to NYC any time soon, please let us know! and we’ll be sure to reach out the next time we’re in france!

Laura T.

Marie, Thank you can’t even begin to state it. These are so beautiful and with these photos, we will remember how amazing our trip to Paris was!! It’s so hard to pick out our favorite ones. 💖 Thank you again for capturing this memory we will never forget!!

Miqui M.

Hello, Marie! Thank you so much, pictures are truly wonderfull! That is great present for our wedding. We really enjoyed staying in Provence and meeting you, guys 🙂
Hope to see you in Moscow ! Have a good week !;)

Anna K.

I LOVE the pictures!!!!! Awww so great!! Thank you so much!! We really enjoyed this year!! We loved the day yesterday!! It was fun!! Thanks again for coming.. means a lot you pick up and come! Very special to have someone do that 🙂 Thanks again for everything! We’ll keep the tradition going!

Kristyne B.

Marie was marvelous, exceptional and super professional. It was my first photo shooting and she made me feel comfortable and pretty. She is the classic Parisian woman, too! She felt like a friend you’ve know forever. The quality and the edit are superb. If I go back to Paris , I’ll Definitely call her again. Merci, Marie.

Mel D.

Firstly, just wanted to let you how much we appreciated your time. It meant a lot to the both of us that you were there to share that “once” in a lifetime moment with us. Your work perfectly expressed the love that we have for each other and we couldn’t be more grateful for you capturing those moments that will last as a memory for a lifetime. It was such a pleasure working with you and again we thank you for making us feel so comfortable to the extent of us forgetting there was even anyone around. You will be highly recommended for anyone who we know will go to Paris in the future!

Cameron S.

Marie was fabulous. Arranging the session with her was great. She was very patient answering all my questions and helping me select venues. She was also flexible planning around bad weather for us. During the session she was fun to talk to and let us do what we want but gave us useful suggestions. Also, her English is excellent. The shots came out even better than I expected and I was really happy at how fast she got them to us. Highly recommend.

Benjamin W.

I was speechless when Marie sent us our pictures. My fiancee proposed to me near the Eiffel Tower and Marie was hiding somewhere taking pictures of us. After he proposed, we spent another 45 minutes taking more pictures. Marie sent us a sneak peak within 48 hours and we were in disbelief. The pictures were just fabulous! We couldn’t wait to see more and sure enough before we even got back to the States, Marie had already emailed us the rest of our pictures. She was sweet and very fun to work with. My fiancee set up the entire thing and he said she was prompt with her e-mails. We are extremely pleased with all the pictures she took for

Kasey G.

We are so glad that we booked Marie for a family photo shoot. The photos are fantastic and she was such a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Highly recommend!

Cassie V.

Oh wow, thank you Marie! We will treasure these always. Thank you so very much, you helped us capture this incredible time in our family!

Jennifer K.

Marie is amazing!! She knows exactly what poses and angles to capture. Making something from nothing, such as a tree and a bush becomes a Forrest when you get your photos back. She also makes you much more photogenic than what you expect. Worked really professionally and on time. The location worked out perfectly.

Erica P.

Wow!!! They are SO fantastic!!!!! I love all the backgrounds!! Reminds me of the great day that was. Thank you SO much! Going to be a great card this year again! your eye and skill for photographs!! I’ll let you know for next year a place and month.

Kristyne B.

Marie was amazing from start to finish! She recently helped me with my surprise proposal while in Paris. She helped me out with so much from the site recommendations, times, etc. Photos came out beautifully and we had such an unforgettable experience with her. Highly recommended! Thank you, Marie!

Paulo A.

Marie – I hope you are doing well! Wonderful – thanks so much for the amazing photos from Paris and Provence!

Kari T.

There aren’t enough lovely words to describe what a wonderful experience I had working with Marie! She’s professional, flexible, gracious and provides a fun and comfortable setting no matter what she’s working on. I had the pleasure of working with her while she was living in Brooklyn, NY. My friends and I are musicians that have been performing and working with different artists in the city for almost a decade now, and no one comes close to what Marie can do. I’m so sad she’s back in France! She has an ability to capture life and moments and breaths in the most beautiful unexpected ways. Whether you are looking for live shots, surprise shots, or portraits, I guarantee you will

Stephanie N.

We had an amazing time with Marie; the experience of setting up a shoot and planning for the day was effortless, and we really felt that she took an effort to get to know us as a couple and as people even before meeting in person. The day itself was magical, and we felt very at ease throughout the shoot. The whole day was very candid, which we really appreciated, because we didn’t want to be too posed or unnatural. We also appreciated how Marie did a great job of finding little spots that were out of the way to make our shoot really personal and unique!

Andrew F.

A great experience!!!! Sooooooooooo glad we had the honor of working with Real talent.
Marie is awesome. Super easy process, communication and flexibility. Pictures where priceless and the video beyond our expectations.

Rick S.

Thank you so much!! We are so happy with our pictures, whenever we hear one of our friends or coworkers are going to Paris we always recommend you!! Thanks so much for capturing our one in a lifetime day!

Angela S.

Marie, these pictures are so beautiful! You are an extraordinary photographer! We love capturing our memories in Paris with you! The lighting and the locations you chose are exceptionally beautiful. Until next time, be well and a bientot! xoxo

Julie A.

Marie helped us create the ‘souvenir of a lifetime’! I was planning a special trip from the U.S. to Paris & Provence for our 15th wedding anniversary. I thought it could be fun to capture the trip in photos but quickly wrote it off as a crazy idea because I didn’t know where to start planning! Luckily, I found Marie. Her work and style captured everything I was hoping for. She put me at ease, was great to communicate with, asked the right questions to make sure we had the same vision, and identified the perfect spots and itinerary for our shoot together. She was a natural with my kids and just made everything so fun and easy. She artfully

Samantha V.

Hello Marie! It’s our first chance to breathe since the wedding yesterday and we would like to pass along our big THANK YOU for documenting this milestone! It was great luck that the sun finally came out and we found wonderful spots in the Bois de Boulogne! We are totally in love with our sneak peak and can’t wait to see the rest!!!!! The colors and contrast are amazing! Thank you for being discrete and ever present! I hope you enjoyed capturing our mini-milestone as much as we enjoyed sharing it with you!

Cheska G.

What an amazing experience. I fully recommend Marie for any family, engagement, wedding or just couples shoot that you may have while in Paris. My husband and I were in France for our honeymoon. I saw all of these gorgeous shots of brides in Paris and thought, why not? Marie was very responsive from the beginning. Even when I wasn’t while in the thick of wedding planning!
During the shoot she helped us think of poses, all Matt and I could think of was to kiss or just stare at each other. Hey, we aren’t models! She helped us feel relaxed and it showed in the pictures.
Marie truly made our honeymoon experience a once in a lifetime

Laura D.

I don’t think I could have picked a better photographer for an engagement shoot! Communication was an A+! She overdelivered with such great quality! We love our photos! She was also happy to help with whatever she could! I messaged 10 other photographers and she was the best value! Thank you Marie!

Eli R.

Thank you so much for sending over these great pictures! We have not gotten the chance to go through all of them yet but the ones we have seen are just breathtaking! Thank you so much for making us look like models and capturing this once in a lifetime moment in one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

Adarsh P.

My wife and I are from the US and we booked a photo shoot with Marie for our 1 year anniversary trip to Paris. She is very professional, punctual, personable and her English is excellent. We were thrilled with her creative shot choices and her willingness to accommodate the kind of shots we envisioned as well.  We received hundreds of shots, in both color and black and white, that had all been painstakingly, digitally adjusted and polished to perfection. Her price was very fair and we couldn’t have been happier with the results. Whether you’re a native of Paris or just visiting, we highly recommend booking a shoot with Marie!!
