Paris Through Your Eyes: Unique Photos and Original Stories Wanted

We are currently looking for original contributions and unique pitches from skilled writers and photographers looking for assignments that will whisk them around our beautiful city. Andreas Selter

Paris might just be the most photogenic city in the world, so it’s no wonder that Anthony and Audrey—a Franco-American couple and photography team—chose this city as their personal and professional base. Through their company, One & Only Paris Photography, they shoot sumptuous Parisian interiors (like those they did for Haven in Paris), but their bread and butter are the romance-inspired photos they shoot of couples in the City of Love—from engagement photos and weddings, to romantic strolls and sultry boudoir-inspired portraits. Audrey and Anthony know just how to capture real, intimate moments and frame them against spectacular Parisian backdrops.
