Karina was our engagement photographer for our Paris photos, and she was such a pleasure to work with! She suggested such fun poses and took us to interesting locations. Even if a location was full of people, she managed to get only us in our photos! Plus, she delivered our edited photos the same day! Amazing!

Thanks, Karina!

Karina was very accommodating and did a great job making sure there weren’t any other people in our pictures. She even gave us a tour with some fun facts as we walked from location to location for more photos. I would absolutely recommend her for any type of photography in Paris!

Karina is an absolute joy to work with and her suggestions not only helped us capture stunning photos but were invaluable to helping us plan our vow exchange. Her knowledge of Paris locations for good photos is unparalleled and despite the oppressive heat wave she made us look amazing. I would 100% recommend her to anyone who wants to capture their special moments in Paris.

She made my surprise proposal the most perfect occasion, on what was the most important day of my life. For a guy, getting this occasion right can be stressful but Karina went above and beyond with her careful planning, help and support, making the process stress-free! Karina is extremely professional, quick to respond to questions and her knowledge and passion for both Paris and photography is second to none! In terms of the photos – outstanding quality! Thanks for everything Karina!

When we decided to elope in Paris, the first thing I did was Google "Paris elopements". This is where I found Karina and Karina Leigh Photography. Once stumbled upon the site, I then continued to stalk the Facebook and Instagram pages. I just feel in love with Karina's work. I also loved that she didn't only work with younger brides, she works with people of all ages who are in love. I reached out to Karina and she instantly replied. We conversed via email several times and I just knew I wanted to hire her.

I explained that we are older and that neither of us like having our photos taken and over the course of the past 5 years there is only one photo of us that we both truly like. I explained if she could just get "ONE" photo of us (in the same picture) I would consider that to be a success. She immediately put my apprehensiveness at bay.

In addition to that, Karina put together an AMAZING team from the officiant, make-up artist and violinist that simply made our wedding beyond memorable. I also want to add that it did rain, but Karina wouldn't allow that to stop anything, she worked her magic and changed locations while still managing to get our Eiffel Tower iconic shots!

Would I recommend her ... YES, over and over and over again! And, for two people who don't like having our pictures taken and are overly critical about all pictures, we ended up buying all the photos Karina took!

When I landed back in the States, my Mom said it best "I don't know how you found your photographer or what you paid the photographer, but whatever it was, it was worth every last dime!"

Karina was amazing!! We loved her photos and the areas she took us to take pictures. We ended up ordering all the photos because they were all wonderful. Karina is easy going and speaks English and French so it was a calming experience. She took us to some places in the city for pictures that only a local like herself would know. She is a world class photographer that captured our special vow renewal day. She also has great suggestions for getting around the city in a more comfortable way to allow for quality time for photos. She really is the best in Paris.

My fiancé and I took our engagement photos with Karina and she did such an amazing job. I’m obsessed with our photos!! This was our first time doing a photo shoot, but Karina made us both feel so comfortable and at ease. I have to say I’m pretty self critical when it comes to pictures of myself and I love every single photo from the shoot. Our photos came out so beautifully; we couldn’t be happier. We love her work so much we’re flying her out to photograph our wedding!

Karina, we cannot thank you enough for the amazing work you did on our wedding. Planning a destination wedding was not easy, but you made the whole entire process so easy for us. Communication was flawless from the beginning and you provided us with excellent tips and locations for the photo session. The wedding photos came out absolutely stunning!!! They turned out so beautiful. There is not a single picture we dislike!

I highly recommend Karina Leigh Photography! Karina was so professional throughout the entire process. I really appreciated: (1) how quickly she responded to each of my messages from my initial email inquiry to WhatsApp messages leading up to our photo shoot, (2) the very user-friendly booking process, (3) the helpful emails we received between booking and our arrival to Paris, (4) the fun and comfortable photo shoot, and (5) the final results! To top it off, Karina thoughtfully made every stage of the process seamless. She was was always available and attentive to whatever we needed, and we simply could not be happier with the final results. If you’re looking for a professional photographer in Paris, choose Picture Me Paris. You will not be disappointed!

Karina was the only person that I contacted that discussed the daunting task of planning a destination proposal BEFORE asking for payment. Even down to the smallest details like what bridge was going to be the best to enter the area for the big surprise! She was very passionate about her profession and shared a lot of information before I even decided that Karina was the person for my engagement proposal photoshoot. This commitment even before payment spoke volumes of Karina as a person and assured me that selecting her was going to be the best decision. Was I right! The engagement went off without a hitch, the photos turned out better than I could have imagined -- like the front of a magazine! I would highly recommend Karina time and time again!

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.

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!

Very professional and helped us get the best shots. Karina was so helpful from start to finish. Very detailed in everything including helping find restaurants to celebrate at. Out pictures turned out like a picture-perfect fairytale. We both were extremely happy. I’d highly recommend!

Karina was very helpful in the planning process, and her website has lots of beautiful samples of her work! I arranged a call on a snowy winter day in Virginia, I placed a call to France to set up an appointment with a photographer with the only expectation was to have a couple of pictures made of my family during our upcoming trip to France. Much to my surprise –I found so much more at the end of the phone line — I reached Karina of Picture Me Paris/Karina Leigh Photography.

Yes she is a photographer and a great photographer, but from the first conversation I could tell she cared about her clients and cared about our vacation as well as she wanted us to walk away with fabulous memories and her final photos of my family did just that!

Her knowledge of the area and the history that she shared as we walked along some of the most beautiful scenery can’t be put in words. She was our tour guide, and our photographer and now our friend.

Karina was very helpful in the proposal planning process, and her website has lots of beautiful samples of her work! I arranged a perfect surprise proposal in Trocadéro Gardens. My fiancée had no idea it was coming, and Karina was there to capture the moment with a beautiful Eiffel Tower in the background. It was the kind of proposal my fiancé and I had dreamed of, and to have images of the moment was special. We even got a photoshoot afterward! Karina is a kind, funny person who enjoys what she does. The photos were even delivered to us the same day, for us to choose our favorites.

Maryanne P



Karina is an amazing photographer. I’ve never had a professional photo taken of me ever. For being my first one , Karina made me feel very comfortable. For the shoot, she took me to different areas and gave me interesting facts about the places she took pictures of me at.

Thanks for sharing things I never really knew about Paris! The results were amazing. Now I have the most amazing pictures to show my dad and friends. I highly recommend her to everyone and anyone! She not only does couples she does people like me who travel by themselves.

The pictures came out AMAZING. My father couldn’t make the trip, I wanted to share with him my journey that’s when I Googled photographers in Paris. Karina popped up first. Immediately I knew I wanted her to take my pictures. A decision I will never regret!!!

Karina was wonderful throughout the process. She was very kind, flexible, and very professional. She made one of the most special days of our lives, even more special with her work. Her communication was superb from the first time I reached out and stayed that way the entire time, even after delivery of the photographs. I cannot recommend Karin enough. She will make your special day even better by giving you memories that will last a lifetime.

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 purposing anywhere in Paris, Karina Leigh Photography is a must.

Thanks again Karina!

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!!

Savan K



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.

She 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!

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!

Wow!!! What a day. Let me first start of by saying that Karina was absolutely wonderful, her personality and charisma made the whole experience one I would never forget. The surprise proposal when exactly as planned and the pictures she got were PRICELESS!!

Thank you Karina for capturing one of the most important days of my life.

Well, let me say it was such a pleasure working with Karina for our wedding!! We were coming from NYC and eloping in the South of France.

From day one Karina was always in contact and very helpful with the planning process as this was all new to me. I would highly recommend Karina if you are thinking of a wedding, engagement or any special occasion. Her pictures are very light and airy and beautiful and they will be cherished for years to come! Thank you again for making our special day a wonderful experience!

My fiancé and I had the best experience with Karina! She photographed us for both a surprise proposal and an engagement photoshoot in Paris and was incredibly helpful both in the planning beforehand and the actual shoots. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for similar photos or experiences in France - our photos turned out beautifully and we had so many to choose from!

My husband and I have nothing but great things to say about our experience with Karina. She was an absolute joy to work with, and we loved how our photos turned out. Karina is extremely knowledgeable about the city, and as a result, our photos had a wide variety of stunning backdrops. We absolutely recommend Karina Leigh for any and all of your professional photoshoots!

Karina is so very nice and talented on her craft. She took the most beautiful photos, all of them are gorgeous! She took her time, walked us to different beautiful places and help us pose. She was very sweet to my son, who usually doesn’t like family portrait sessions, but she made it fun and enjoyable for him, he didn’t complain even one time during our photo session. I highly recommend Karina if you want beautiful photos in Paris! Thank you Karina!

paris vow renewal photographer karina leigh photography

My husband and I renewed our wedding vows in Paris. Karina was our photographer and so much more. Let me start by saying Karina is thorough, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. We planned our trip to France in 2020 and had to wait two years to actually go due to the pandemic. During those two, interim years Karina helped me plan our vow renewal, she recommended and provided me names of excellent makeup/ hair artists, and a wonderful, reliable driver. She also sent me information about French culture and different places in France to visit outside of Paris.

Unfortunately, on the day of our vow renewal it was raining outside. Karina told me not to worry and assured me the pictures would come out great. She was correct, the pictures are stunning and have a unique flare. I am so pleased with them and cannot wait to hang them up in my house and office. The best part for me was that she included my son in a few of them to make them extra special. The rain provided a moody feel to the photos and I love it so much. In addition to being a great photographer, Karina also proved to be a very knowledgeable tour guide! An added bonus for sure.

I am extremely happy with the entire experience and I have Karina to thank for that. She is wonderful and I am grateful to have met her. I hope to see her again the next time I am in France.

Karina was great. My fianceé said she loved the picture and the photoshoot- both of which made her day. Karina was very helpful throughout the entire process, from the day I reached out about the proposal idea a month before hand. She was able to give me ideas/feedback that I would not have thought of. She is very on top of any response/question you have, she processed the photos on the same day! Would highly recommend Sacre Couer if you are considering Paris proposal. 11/10 for Karina

Conor F



I could not recommend booking Karina for your next photo shoot enough. Karina recently took pictures of my surprise engagement in Paris, and my fiance and I will cherish our interaction with her and the photos she captured for a lifetime.

From initial contact to the day of the event, she was responsive, helpful, professional, and extremely kind. She provides all the information you need well ahead of time, removing any stress from what otherwise should be an exciting day. Having someone who knows the best locations and can help to plan a great session is especially important if you are visiting from abroad, like I was.

On the day of my engagement, she demonstrated not only great skill in setting up shots but also unparalleled grace, patience, and kindness. My fiance and I were of course quite overwhelmed with emotion, and Karina was instrumental to putting us at ease and helping to calm our nerves.

The pictures she captured were incredible--and I mean that in every sense of the world. I don't know much about photography, but she was able to switch angles, cameras, focuses, and so on to capture all the emotions and memories of that day. If you are looking for an engagement photographer, look no further. Karina Leigh Photography is the way to go.

Amazing photographer. Helped us with our proposal and engagement photos at the Louvre. She really made everything so easy especially knowing and instructing us on what would photograph well. She was spot on with what would capture well. We can't believe how well our photos came out. We may be getting married in Paris and will absolutely be using her for that event if we do.

Where do I begin? I don’t think that there are enough amazing things that I can say about Karina.

I originally inquired her in September 2022 about our upcoming trip to Paris in March 2023. My husband and I are Newlyweds that were visiting and wanted a memorable keepsake from our trip. Immediately, Karina was very detailed and thoroughly explained each package that she offers. We chose her Emerald package which includes 40 edited photos, 3 hours of shooting at 2-3 locations. She also offers a la carte options to purchase any additional photos or you can buy the entire gallery at an additional set price - of course, we bought the entire gallery, because HOW COULD WE NOT?

Once I booked with Karina, she sent out 3 separate emails:
- The first email includes recommendation for a private driver. Fabrice with Fab Drive was highly recommended by Karina. He is fluent in both English and French. He knows the city very well and was able to navigate us through each of our locations without any delays. If you’re thinking of using Taxi, Uber, or driving yourself- DON’T. Save yourself the hassle and hire Fabrice! It’ll make the entire shoot go so much smoother!

- The second email includes Restaurant recommendations along with descriptions of each restaurant as well as their website. Great for couples who have never been to Paris before.

- The third email includes a map and detailed instructions as well as a video on where to meet the morning of your shoot. She also explains what will happen if you are lost or late to the session.

A week before our scheduled shoot, Karina reached out via email and asked which locations I wanted to shoot at. Once we had decided on the locations, Karina mapped out 2 possible structured timelines in which we could use for the day of the shoot to stay on track.

Because we booked with Fabrice, he was able to pick us up from our hotel and transported us to meet Karina at our first shoot location. As soon as I met Karina, I couldn’t help but feel like I already knew her as we had previously chatted back and forth on Instagram since I booked with her in September 2022. Working with Karina was such an easy and effortless process. Because of how detailed she is, she notices every single thing as she’s shooting. She goes the extra mile to ensure that there are no cigarette butts or trash in any of the photos as well as any additional people lingering in the background area. Shooting in Paris can be a little difficult as it’s a very high traffic city, but Karina knows how to angle her shots to ensure that it’s only you and your partner in the photos without having to sacrifice the scenic backdrop. Another thing I appreciated about Karina was that she was very attentive to the time to ensure that we were utilizing each location. Karina made my husband and I feel so comfortable as we shared very many laughs and conversation throughout our shoot.

I am so thrilled that I found Karina and booked with her for our shoot. Everything was just absolute magic. If you book with Karina, I promise you will not regret it. She is worth EVERY penny!

When my husband and I were returning to Paris for our 30th anniversary I knew I wanted to find the prefect photographer. I also wanted to do a vow renewal but needed ALL the info and handholding! When I came across Karina’s info on Pinterest - that got the ball rolling! I read about other photogs but kept coming back to Karina’s Pinterest account. I loved all her photos and her style was exactly as I’d envisioned, I thought she could totally capture what I’d dreamed of! Being an American living in France - her communication was flawless! Don’t know how I’d have managed without all her help with vendors (make-up Artist & driver ~ 2 of the best ever!) Karina knew ALL the best spots and made us feel so comfortable- we almost forgot we were having a photo shoot. She captured so many shots in all the perfect places we had wanted ~ and then some! Knowledgeable, sweet, caring, and the best photographer ever! I don’t know how we got so lucky!

If you’re ever planning a trip to Paris (or France) and want the best photo experience ~ Karina is your girl! We loved her and our photos are amazing!

If you’re looking for a personal experience with a quality product, book Karina. Her attention to detail and professionalism can be seen in her organization, creating a comfortable environment, helping you walk through the poses, and getting exactly what you purchased. She takes the time to get to know you and your story; it’s easily seen through her work.

I booked a couples session and it ended in a surprise proposal. My now fiance appreciated the communication, support, and giving him options on the best locations of the area. Expect to wander the streets, learn interesting facts, laugh, and for time to pass by quickly. We guarantee you’ll love the experience and we can’t wait to show our family and friends our beautiful photos!

WOW!!! Just WOW!! I lucky were we that we found Karina and her amazing skills as part of our 30th anniversary European holiday!!! Karina is not only a passionate, talented photographer - but she is also a wonderful human - one who you would want to spend time with, share passions, stories . . . and a glass of wine :)

From start to finish - Karina went above and beyond to ensure our experience and final outcome was everything we would hope for. She was very detailed in her communication regarding the scheduling - being very sure we would be happy with our location - providing examples, options - and at each turn, replied IMMEDIATELY regarding questions/logistics. She researched our desires and presented options that helped to ensure we were headed for a great experience. Once we arrived in Provence - meeting Karina was like meeting an old friend. She is beautiful soul - and made our afternoon tour/shoot in the beautiful Provence hill towns and lavender fields more like hanging out with a good friend then working for portraits. As the afternoon went on - it become more about the wonderful time we were sharing then the process of posing for photos. It was honestly hard to leave when we were done.

And then . . . the photos arrived. Beyond excited with ALL THE MANY wonderful portraits/memories she had collected!! We were beyond able to make choices and opted to download her entire gallery. Honestly - there are not enough words to describe our experience with Karina Leigh and her master photography!! We highly recommend her to any/everyone!!!! Sure hope to have the opportunity to use her again!!!!!

From the very start, Karina was extremely thorough and informative. We knew immediately that we could trust her with a once in a lifetime engagement photo shoot. She went above and beyond to plan an entire day around the Provence region to capture the perfect pictures. Karina even contacted and booked a private driver which added a layer of security and convenience for the experience. Karina was fun, friendly, and professional. It felt like we were exploring France with new friends!

The actual pictures are incredible and by far the best that we've ever had done. The lighting, background, and moments captured are absolutely stunning. She is very good at what she does!

Thank you Karina!

My fiancee and I had our engagement photos shot in Paris. We chose Karina as our photographer and we could not be happier with the overall experience and the quality of the photos themselves. Karina was knowledgeable and professional enough to give us instructions that ultimately lead to great shots, but in no way overbearing or controlling.

She is also a relaxing presence which was critical to helping us create some amazing candid shots that would not have been possible if we were tense or on edge around our photographer. In the moment, you don't realize some of the amazing backdrops that Karina is creating... Until you get the photo package.

Karina knows this area very well and has a well thought out plan for capturing shots that showcase the beautiful architecture of the city while also making sure the clients get the results that they want.

I would highly recommend Karina for any photography needs in the Paris area.
