Paris on Film

Getting The Photos From My Disposable Camera Back


Remember my October goals video where I went out in Paris with a disposable camera and took pictures all around the city? Well I finally got them back!

Not gonna lie, I should have had them back way sooner but the guy in the Fnac explained to me that it would take a minimum of 6-8 weeks to develop the films because using disposable cameras has become so popular that the dark room is overwhelmed with waiting lists that last for months.

After holding off for a few weeks because I wasn’t sure what to do, a friend of mine recommended a photography shop in Paris called Nation Photo that was cheaper and faster than the Fnac and a smaller business too. If you ever want to develop photos in Paris I would totally recommend it! They gave me a choice between matte and shiny photos but because I wanted a vintage feel to my photography, I went for a matte photo.

None of the photos in this post are retouched so that’s why they may seem quite dark but I wanted to keep the authentic charm of them.


When was the last time you saw one of these pockets? I couldn’t contain my excitement over opening it! One of the best things about film photography is that each photograph is a surprise in itself.


This photo that Greg snapped of me when we were shopping for flowers and pumpkins is one of my favourites. I love the colours and the rustic aesthetic.


This photo looks like it could be a postcard. When my boyfriend bought me a box of ladurée macarons, I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of film next to the Opéra Garnier in Paris.


I’ll never stop admiring how handsome Greg is in this photo. Just look at him with the Eiffel Tower behind him.


This photo was snapped outside The Centre Culturel Suisse in Le Marais and this is some of my favourite street art in Paris. I took this photo mainly because I know it won’t be there forever.


The best photo of Greg unfortunately had my finger covering the lens. It captures a very natural moment between us though and I love it for that.


These photos were snapped at the Café Pouchkine at Madeleine. This was one of the best hot chocolates I ever drank!


These photos were snapped in the Parc du Sceaux. I love it so much for the castle there.


Cafés in Paris will always look better on film.


So that’s it for my photos of Paris on film for now. I honestly love the fact that I have a physical copy of such amazing moments in my favourite city with the person I love.

I really hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments if you’ve ever taken photos on film.

That’s all from me for now. Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you again very soon.
