“Karina did an amazing job with our proposal pictures. I couldn’t be more happy with the amazing work she did!!”

Jesse B, New York, USA

“We had an amazing time in Paris last week, which included an engagement photo session with Karina. Karina was an absolutely pro and pleasure to work with, both before, during and after the shoot. We even got our photos within a few hours of the shoot! As someone who often works with a lot of different photographers as part of my business, this is really above and beyond what is usually expected. The photos were beautiful and my fiancee and I are so excited we will have these fantastic photos to remember our time and to last a lifetime. Thank you, Karina!”

Lewis B, United Kingdom

I can’t thank Karina enough for all her effort and help with my surprise proposal in Paris. Karina from the start was supportive of my plans and always on hand for advice. Her communication is great throughout! She is an exceptional photographer and a true professional. The pictures you have taken are perfect and truly capture a moment of a lifetime. I am so glad I found you, I can’t recommend enough using Karina to anyone who wants to make their Paris experience that extra special.

I will briefly but extensively write about my experience with Karina (i.e Picture Me Paris).

I found Karina when I was searching for someone professional to shoot my private intimate proposal to my partner on Google, at first, just like any normal person I was hesitating to pay the money thinking it would an Internet scam especially that I am an expat living in Dubai with no knowledge of the French market, but it turned out to be the best decision I made for this new chapter of my life.

From planning to executing, Karina was a highly professional individual who made this moment an unforgettable day for both me and my partner. The photos are of a high resolution and amazing angles, not to mention that Karina is very much aware of the beautiful spots especially in Montmartre where i proposed.

I highly recommend to contact Karina (Picture Me Paris) to anyone wishing to have this new step of his life a memorable one.

Vick & Akansha, Toronto, Canada

Karina is an AMAZING artist, we are sooo happy with her work and how beautiful our proposal pictures came out. My fiancé was in touch with Karina to coordinate a surprise Paris proposal for me during our trip and she was extremely responsive, gave very detailed instructions, and captured our proposal beautifully. She picked a beautiful location for our proposal which overlooked the Eiffel Tower, and was clandestine in her approach in the sense that I had no idea she was there and that this special moment was being photographed by her!! After introducing herself, we had a photoshoot in the surrounding area. I have never really been photographed professionally, but her friendliness and presence put me in ease (I was a bundle of nerves), and I think this made a huge difference in how great the pictures and our chemistry in them came out. A mere twenty minutes after we were done with our shoot, she sent some sneak peak pictures to my fiance to share, and a few hours later we received a thoroughly detailed email with access to all the pictures! Thank you so much Karina for making our proposal wonderful! 

Lawrence B. Spokane Washington

Where to start!! Karina was with me every step of the way. Communication was amazing, she answered every question I had even before I knew I had it. I was very nervous but Karina put my mind at ease. Very knowledgeable of how to keep the proposal a surprise. We received our pictures only a few hours after our shoot and they were better than expected. She knew the best places for the photos and they were amazing. If you are thinking about proposing anywhere in Paris, Picture Me Paris is a must. Thanks again Karina!

Chris R. Los Angeles

We had an amazing proposal experience with Karin! Starting from the planning stage through after the proposal, Karin was always available and attentive to whatever we needed, and we couldn’t be happier with the final results. She made the photoshoot fun and comfortable, and she showed us a side of Paris we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. We highly recommend Picture Me Paris, you will not be disappointed!

Drew F. Canada

I couldn’t be happier with the help Karina provided for my surprise proposal and the quality of the photos is top notch. The information on her website is second to none with amazing detail about each location. Karina helped me pull off the surprise flawlessly, and her guidance as a photographer was key to capturing the moment perfectly. The follow up engagement photos were also incredible, she has a wonderful eye for photography and was very good at directing our poses. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Patrick, Washington DC, United States

From photography to planning, Karina is the consummate professional. Her meticulous attention to detail coupled with her charismatic personality truly created a memorable lifelong experience for us.

Richard, United States

I don’t even know where to begin to begin Karina and thank her for all her help in making this joyous occasion the most memorable experience I could ask for. 

Karina was thorough from day 1, flexible when my surprise almost backfired the morning of, and above all, is such an excellent photographer. 

First priority on our list when we flew home were to get her pictures up in our home. She was attentive to every need, question, and concern; she even became a thorough and knowledgable tour guide as we rode from one location to the other. 

We’re going to have these images and memories forever, and Karina couldn’t have made it better or easier! Thank you for everything

Arjan, United Kingdom

I cannot thank Karina enough! Well, where do I start, 

I was planning on ‘popping the question’ in Paris as a surprise to my other half and Karina was incredibly helpful in making it possible! 

She is exceptionally professional and the pictures she captured were perfect, we managed to get them online the next day and when we saw them we couldn’t stop smiling, we couldn’t have asked for any more from Karina, the pictures were stunning!! 

Karina organised the photoshoot around the Eiffel Tower and it was amazing! Karina honestly made the day even more special! 

Thank you so much again!!

Savan, Lonon, United Kingdom

There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing Karina is. 

She is warm, bubbly and very professional. 

Karina provided me with excellent suggestions to locations based on the time of day I was going to propose. Communication was flawless in the run up to the proposal. S

he made the occasion extra special for both myself and my fiancée and we cannot thank her enough for being there to capture our moment. The end results are breathtaking. 

Thank you once again Karina!

David, United Kingdom

Perfect pictures, fantastic communication and very good at putting you at ease. 

Got much more than I expected and very happy with everything from start to finish. I would 100% recommend.

Anupam, United States

Karina was wonderful to work with during the whole process. 

She was very responsive to all questions and provided great advice as I was planning the proposal from another country. In particular, her familiarity with the city ensured that my surprise proposal went wonderfully! 

She was extremely positive during the photoshoot itself, which was no small feat given the cold temperature and gusty winds. 

Lastly, the pictures she took turned out spectacularly! We have received so many compliments from friends and family over how magical the photos are. 

That is all due to Karina’s photography skills and expertise! I am very grateful to Karina for her help and highly recommend Picture Me Paris to anyone who needs a photographer for a special event in Paris!

Kav, United Kingdom

If you want your special moment captured, Picture Me Paris is the way to go. I booked Karina for a surprise engagement, she provided a friendly, professional service and sent the amazing pictures to me quicker than expected.

Kyle, United States

I proposed to my girlfriend at the Louvre Pyramid right after Christmas and the photos came out amazing. 

Karina is AWESOME. 

It was pouring rain but she did an excellent job and I think the photos look even better with the rain – she was also very knowledgeable about everything in Paris and walked us over to get some great photos taken around the museum in cool places… would recommend to anyone looking to get great pictures taken!

Benson, Dallas Texas, United States

Although my fiancée had been to Paris many times, I had never been, so going through Karina’s tips on locations and times was extremely helpful. 

Professional, attentive and very kind. I highly recommend Picture Me Paris to anyone visiting the City of Light. I booked Picture Me Paris for a surprise engagement in Paris. 

I chose Karina after looking at her work and background on her website.

I love that she has packages that are tailored to what you would want with a Paris proposal. 

I also liked her portfolio of work. I was really impressed by the communication after hiring Karina. 

She even went as far as to update me on the weather, time of sunrise etc for the date of my proposal as we got closer, and even let me know about local events in Paris that could have caused delays in my travel. 

The meeting that morning went exactly as planned. We lucked out with our pictures because it was cold and raining the morning of our shoot. While that may seem counterintuitive, it meant we had great unobstructed views and got a lot of great shots. 

Karina is a pro at making feel comfortable. We got our pictures back remarkably fast. 

All of our friends at home wanted to know how we got those shots and the pictures were so perfect a couple of people asked if they were staged! I have no reservations in recommending Picture Me Paris to you.

Alisha, South America

My fiancé booked a surprise proposal photoshoot with Karina and it was nothing short of awesome. 
Karina is amazing and captured every moment perfectly. She is a delight to work with and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire photoshoot.

To top it off, we got our images in less than 48 hours and we loved each and every one of them. We cannot thank you enough Karina for providing us with top quality images, great service and capturing our once in a lifetime moment perfectly. 

I would highly recommend Karina (Picture Me Paris) to anyone looking for a photographer in Paris. She is beyond awesome.

Manny, Los Angeles, United States

Loved working with Karina and my now fiancee LOVED her as well. 

I first contacted Karina when I found her website through searching the internet. I had already booked a trip to Paris and I planned on proposing and I wanted someone to capture the special moment. 

Karina helped me brainstorm and create the perfect scenario. She helped me with ideas and always responded to my emails immediately. 

She helped me pick the perfect spot and helped work with me on dress wear ideas as well. 

Once I arrived in Paris I met her at the spot that we agreed on and she met my (then) girlfriend…they chatted for a while to get to know each other and she helped position us in a few different poses….all leading up to how she magically helped get my ring box from my bag and into my back-pocket without my girlfriend noticing or suspecting a thing.

I was able to propose and Karina captured EVERY moment. 

It was so special, my fiancee began crying as she said YES and it was so special. 

What made it the best was that Karina was such a kind caring person and showed emotion as well and was not a robot that just snapped pictures. 

Karina allowed us plenty of time to celebrate and never rushed us…and when we were ready she showed us to the next locations. 

If I ever have the opportunity to visit Paris again…which I plan on doing because its a very amazing place….I will be using Karina again. 

This is a decision you will not regret, I promise. 

Thanks again Karina if you are reading this…myself and Kyla are very grateful!

Alan, United Kingdom

Karina helped with absolutely everything I needed in order to surprise my fiancée to be. 

Karina helped with the location and kept everything as secretive as possible, my girlfriend had no idea!

On the day of the proposal Karina was professional, friendly and super knowledgeable of Paris. Karina enjoyed listening to the stories of how we met and how we connected.

The result of her work is outstanding and the pictures were high resolution and perfect. I believe I made the right choice by contacting Karina.

Thank you again for such a fantastic day and perfect pictures.

Tommy, United States

An amazing experience from start to finish. It was great to have an American available in Paris to capture exactly what we wanted. We were on a very tight schedule with a tour and Karina was very accommodating and flexible. The photos turned out beautiful and we were able to have access to all of the high-res copies!

Rob & Julia, Canada

Had so much fun!! Karina is a great photographer and knows Paris well. We highly recommend her services!!

Andrew, NYC, United States

Picture Me Paris (Karina) made my surprise proposal better than I could ever imagine!

I live in New York City. The thought of planning such a big event in a city that is over 3,000 miles away (and that I had never been to before!) is overwhelming and daunting!

But from the email communication to planning the location/date to receiving the final photos KARINA MADE IT SO EASY!!

I truly can say, Karina was the reason why this special day was PERFECT! I could not have done it without her! The pictures and moment you will have for a lifetime! Do it right and hire Karina! (My partner and I loved her so much we are even talking about having her do our wedding!)

Aaron & Ellie, United Kingdom

Karina, thank you so much for capturing our special moment together. The photos are fantastic and it’s truly amazing to be able to look back at them forever.

You were great from the very beginning with getting a plan together, without your knowledge of Paris I would have been truly lost.

Every single photo has a unique meaning to it and we love looking back at them all and remembering such a once in a lifetime moment.

Thank you for being so so amazing and we wish you all the best in the future!

Matt & Erika, Illinois, United States


We are IN LOVE with ALL the pictures!!

I could not have picked a better person for the job! Thank you so much for your time and all the extra effort you put into our special day.

If we ever have anyone looking for a photographer in Paris, we will recommend you religiously!!

Amber & Dylan, Michigan, United States

I would definitely recommend Karina as our proposal/engagement pictures turned out beautiful. Our engagement was incredibly special and I’m so happy to have such nice photos that captured that moment. Karina was very nice to work with and made the session fun while also giving us more information about Paris.

Gabriel, NY, United States

Amazing, Karina was excellent to work with, gracious, accommodating, was able to assist me and bring my dreams into reality. Do yourself a favor and contact her immediately. Not only was she amazing, the pictures and response time was outstanding. Thank you so much Karina.

April & Alex, United States

“Wonderful experience with Karina. Surprise proposal in Montmartre in January. She was so easy going and made us feel comfortable. She took us all over the Montmartre area to get several amazing shots. She helped make our engagement a day I will never forget! Highly recommend, thank you Karina :)”
