There are so many beautiful bridges along the Seine river, but this one is made of steel. It was constructed between 1903-1905 and has two levels, one for pedestrians and one for motors. Originally named the Viaduc de Passy but was renamed Bir Hakeim on 1948 after the battle of Bir Hakeim when the french fought against the Nazis.
As a photographer, I know from my French colleagues that this bridge is a great location for wedding/engagement photography sessions in Paris.

Picture perfect Paris
Robert Doisneau photographed a couple kissing at the Hôtel de Ville in the 50‘s and started a fad that is still popular today. Technology has evolved, allowing couples to stroll the city taking selfies from Trocadero and the Pont des Arts or whenever the Eiffel Tower pops into view. On the Champs de Mars there are all kinds of games to play with the perspective to make it look like the tower is coming between you and at the Louvre visitors spend hours trying to catch the perfect angle of themselves pinching the glass pyramids between their fingers. For something even more polished, Pictours Paris will follow couples on their journeys to the most romantic corners of the city, immortalizing proposals and elopements along the way.
