Hi, and welcome to Pictours Paris!
I’m Lindsey, an American living in Paris (since 2011!) and a seasoned photographer known for capturing timeless Paris photos for couples and families alike. Hope to meet you soon! xx
With an ardor for travel and a love for love, I created Pictours Paris to blend the two together! Since that day, I’ve been happy to create professional and memorable portraits of you and the people most important to you – significant others, families, friends – in Paris
My journey to Paris began when I first met my husband, Justin Kent, in Denver, Colorado, USA. He is American-French – and a cook, so it was his dream to take his culinary career to Paris. Fast forward a few years to 2011 – it was our wedding day and two months later, we packed our bags and moved to the City of Love and Light!
Photography was always a passion of mine and I had two very amazing photography mentors in my husband's family - Tony Kent and Jim Arndt. I had been working professionaly in public relations, marketing and event planning in Denver, CO for several years. I graduated from Colorado State University with a BA in Journalism, emphasis in public relations. When we moved to Paris, I saw so many lovely couples and families visiting the city, and the idea to capture their time here was born. Pictours Paris was launched in early 2012, and since then I’ve been fortunate to live out my passion for photography and photograph hundreds of couples and families in the city I am lucky to call home.
One of the greatest compliments that I hear from clients is that they not only love their photographs from Paris, but they had such an enjoyable experience working with me.
I consider myself easy-going, fun-loving and creative, and I am dedicated to providing my clients with a fun, stress-free photo session (and planning process!). I love meeting people from all over the world and learning about who they are and where they come from.
My husband is a French-trained chef and in January 2017 we opened our very own coffee shop & restaurant, Zia. It's been touted as the #1 brunch restaurant in Paris on Tripadvisor, and also one of the top performing overall restaurants in Paris (anf there are 17,446 restaurants here)!
And then in June 2021 (after a very long delay due to Covid!), we opened our second passion project, Milagro!! It's stone's throw from Zia, and a beautiful gastronomic restaurant. The menu is phenomenal: take my word! I'm very proud of my husband. 🙂
We would love to have you in for brunch, lunch or dinner at either of our restaurants while you are in Paris.
Our family unit includes myself, Justin, our daughter, Élodie, our puppy, Charlie, and our feisty cat, Pete.
