On google maps you can see the distance between the differents photos spots. By taxi, you can target 10 minutes between Eiffel Tower and Bridge Alexander 3 withou traffic jam and 15 minutes between Eiffel Tower and louvre museum. 30 minutes photo shoot by spot is a minimum as we will walk a bit around the location to catch differents background and framing. So if you want 2 locations, 1 hour and half will be the good timing.
In case of 30 minutes maximum of rain, we wait on spot that rain stop, the positif side is less people will be around and light on floor are nice after rain. I case of full raining day on weather forecast, the day before you can : postpone shooting if we have same availability choose indoor place or under arcades such as Palais Royal. I won’t refund the deposit has I can have customer requesting a shooting for indoor places and say no because I have an outdoor booking on that day. I suggest to you to take an umbrella, transparent color is the best. Photos will be rommantics and rain stand not that long in Paris. If rain doesn't stop, we will wait in a café or under a bridge and I will offer your extra time if it's need it to make nice pictures :).
The deposit paid at the signing of the contract is evidence of a firm and definitive commitment. No deposit refund if you want to cancelled shoots.
Any delay for your photo shoot original start time it will be on your charge. If I am available after your original ending session time you can buy extra photography time.

Champ de mars is west exposure so with view on sunset but its crowded and i can’t Garantee beautiful sunset on a day has weather could be clouded.
As you have special need, I think it will be a good idea if you can go by yourself one day before. If not maybe plan more time with me to find on spot the best place.
Sunset time are given with accuracy on google by launching this request : « sunset time in Paris on day/month/year ». For organisation purpose I need to know you time slot.
How many hours of service do you need ? On what time slot ? For photoshooting, check package prices details and view my portfolio. For a videoshoot, check package prices details and view my portfolio. For photo and video you have to add both price if you want 2 people so one photographer ans one videographer. When all you questions and needs wrote on a page, let's schedule a quick FaceTime / WhatsApp call to meet face to face before reservation.
I'm a photographer and videographer so I will do the video part. I can also do photoshoot too, just after the video, we can do the remake of the scene, I will probably need 30 min more but you don't pay a second person. I can also ask a photographer that I know to come. What do you prefer ?
Instead of having pictures taken discreetly, I can pretend that I was looking for a random tourist (you) to take pictures for us when we arrive there. Then I pretend to hand my phone to you, after which I go back to my girlfriend and propose to her, with her knowing you’re there. That way I think you can stay closer to us, therefore avoiding passers-by more easily.
I understand you want to make sure everything will go smoothly on this important day, but it wouldn't be fair if the organising part take up much more time than it should have. I think we can just improvise on the day and make the best out of it and move around to catch some good pictures even when conditions change.
