Chinese Speaking Paris Photographer Kiss Me in Paris

LAURENT (Loh-rahn)


Laurent is an exceptionally talented fashion, portrait, and event photographer in lovely Paris. Most clients would say that what makes him stand out is his patience, ability to give clear directions, and his unique artistic vision.

Born in Compiègne, 80 kilometers from Paris, to a French mother and an ethnically Chinese father, Laurent fell in love with painting at an early age. He considered becoming a designer but eventually studied human sciences in Paris.

His university research took Laurent to China, where he rediscovered his passion for the visual arts and met his lovely wife, Claire.

And this was when Laurent decided that a career in portrait and event photography would be the perfect next step; he has never looked back.

Laurent routinely photographs solo portraits, luxury weddings, couples, celebrities, red-carpet events, and Paris Fashion Week (with official accreditation). His work has been displayed in China, Germany, Italy, and Morocco.

what I love about shooting in pairs

I was born only 80 kilometers from Paris, where I grew up and studied. Paris is one of the most beautiful spots on the planet, with an unequaled combination of romance, fashion, and joie de vivre. As a Parisian photographer who constantly searches for context, believable connection, and photo variety, I feel blessed to do what I’m passionate about for a living.

Relax and forget about the camera so your personality has a chance to shine powerfully.

Laurent! Laurent! Laurent!

There’s not enough space to write about the amazing (and relaxing) experience my FIANCÉE and I had with Laurent!

I’ve actually never been to Paris (and never proposed before 🙂 but wanted our engagement to be perfect for her. Needless to say, I felt a little stressed.

Laurent is a true-life HERO who took any worries off my plate. He exceeded my high expectations by helping me pick the perfect spot, offering helpful tips, and communicating responsively. My fiancée, too, was blown away by the experience!

Laurent initially met us at the designated spot for a few candids. The photoshoot and our time with him flew by because we were having a blast! After the shoot, Laurent recommended, in detail, places for us to dine as he lives in the neighborhood where we shot. He is so attentive and helpful.

The final product. (our photo gallery) is beautiful! We’re beyond happy to have these photos for life, and what better images to use for our save the dates??? Thank you, Laurent, for everything. Highly recommended!

I hired Laurent to take boudoir pictures of me in Paris. The shoot was very relaxed and much more fun than I imagined. The poses he asked me to do felt natural. I could express myself while listening to background music and chatting with Laurent.

Laurent can see beauty in a great variety of subjects—I’m super happy with how he captured my body. I guess it’s noteworthy that I was recovering from severe depression just before our boudoir shoot. I was eager to keep a memory of myself at that particular moment in time. I just wanted to feel beautiful and confident.

I hope I can have another session with Laurent in the future. I’d recommend him to anyone who wants excellent portraits.


We had a Paris photoshoot with Laurent. The pictures turned out so good! We even got a few edited images back the same day; this was awesome as we could share them with our family and friends. Laurent is so patient and helpful. He went above and beyond by helping us get our poses right and making everything look perfect. He knew all the good spots and even took us to little-known places. We will recommend Laurent to all our family and friends who visit Paris!

Laurent was excellent! My wife and I are thrilled we did the photo shoot (ha, we are having such a hard time selecting our favorite photos for editing—we love them all). I had an idea of where I wanted our pictures taken. Still, Laurent’s recommendations were fantastic, so trust him on where he thinks will be best, depending on the time of the day and the crowds. On a rating scale of 1-10, Laurent is an 11! He cares about you and your safety. We both brought our backpacks, and Laurent carried them for the entire photoshoot to ensure our belongings stayed safe; now, that’s going the extra mile!

I did two photo sessions (pre-wedding and pictures of my entire family) with Laurent. Both shoots were awesome! Laurent is a true artist who will adapt to your style and make things fun. Most people in my family have a hard time relaxing in front of the lens, but everyone felt comfortable with him. Ha, even my grandparents, who are over 90, keep asking me about Laurent. Several years after one of my shoots, I lost all the pics. Fortunately, Laurent was well-organized and kept a backup copy :-))).


My shoot with Laurent was very professional. He gave me lots of helpful tips on posing, making me feel comfortable the entire time. Laurent has many wonderful ideas to get creative pictures and understands how to make the most of natural light. I immediately shared my photos on Instagram and got a massive number of amazing comments from my friends!


Taking couple pictures with Laurent in Paris was an unforgettable experience! He is such a skilled portrait photographer who knows how to capture emotions. The experience was much more natural than expected. He is efficient, which allowed us to get our photos taken in multiple environments. We really love our pictures and warmly recommend Laurent.


As a musician, I wanted pictures that perfectly captured my style and showed off my personality. I’m thrilled I chose Laurent as my Paris photographer. I was instantly impressed by his talent. Today, I use his lovely photos as my official concert portraits.
