Party like/with Parisians with a Popup Tribe -- Bar Crawl
~message us for last minute spots~ If Henry Miller were still alive, he would be taking you marauding through little back streets, but since he isn't (because:dead), you've got us, young Parisians living life to the max and hitting the streets…and the bottle (hey, all the bike rides are our detox, non?) EXCLUSIVELY on AirBnB <3 These are the bars we go to with our friends—we rampage through the un-touristy parts of town… Join a local in love with the city of light on a rampage through the bars of real Paris and maraud like old friends. Think offbeat bars, unassuming on the outside, but throbbing with anxious actresses...lecherous Laurent's...disgruntled poets sweating their regrets over a bière picon. From grandpa dive bars invaded by Gen Z sporting asymmetric haircuts, to weird—or just plain cool—spots we know to be lively hangouts—barely noticeable (or outright hidden) from the street, you would have probably kept walking—our popup party follows the vibe through alleyways and backstreets. Introverts/solo travelers welcome. Also non-drinkers. (Sober people need fun, too.) And ‘old’ people. Bring it! We romp through about 3 bars, starting out at a funky little place where we buy the first shared round of something French you perhaps haven’t before tried. Then we follow the vibe ALLERGENS NOTE: May contain traces of oversharing **

Gorgeous pictures in Paris
Hello, This is a 30min long private photoshoot in Paris. We can shoot editorial/fashion or touristic pictures. Why 30 min? One thing I noticed after photographing hundreds of solo travelers/couples, 1hr or more walking around to take photos can get a bit tiring for people who don't have prior experience taking professional photos. I want to keep this experience as convivial as possible while offering you a photoshoot of the highest quality for the otpimum duration you can stay focused to make those unforgettable photos. Less time walking, more time spent taking photos with attention to detail on every photo. It is also a more practical option to people who just want to take photos of their new outfit, get recent high-quality professional headshots or new pictures for their dating profile. You get all result photos and are given a preview after we take each one to adjust the photoshoot to your liking. I can shoot video reels for your social media content as well. It happens around le Louvre area. We can take pictures in front of the pyramids if you're here on a visit, or in the adjacent park, on the street, sitting at a cafe, etc... Ideal experience for people planning on visiting le Louvre right after. Night time (from 6pm) is for photos near Eiffel, at a different location. You may consult with me before booking if there's a place in particular that you'd like.
Private Vacation Portraits in Paris

After you will have the photos on an online gallery ready for printing and to treasure your vacation for a lifetime and share with friends and family. ***When you book: Please only book one hour for 2 guests. This is a private 1-hour session for couples or solo travelers. If you are a family, please message me so I can open more spaces for your children for the hour you want. ***You pay per person ***If it rains we will travel nearby to a beautiful bridge that has coverage and amazing Eiffel Tower views.
