20 Paris Instagram Accounts to Follow
With over 400 million Instagram accounts, it can be difficult to sift through all the selfies and unappetizing photos of spaghetti Bolognese to find pictures that you really want in your feed. Paris is certainly a photogenic city, and even though it is my home, I never tire of seeing images from the City of Light. Not only am I inspired as someone who likes to take photos, but I also learn about Paris from fellow Parisians. The folks at Bonjour Paris recently jumped on the Instagram train. Having been on the social media channel for a number of years, they asked me to compile a list of some of the best Parisian Instagram accounts. Numerous articles have been written naming the best Paris Instagrammers to follow, and the same people seem to appear each time. Certainly great accounts, I chose to highlight those Instagrammers who are lesser known, but brilliant nonetheless. I personally follow each of these accounts, which all have less than 20,000 followers and focus primarily on Paris. A photo posted by A Parisian Moment (@aparisianmoment) on Nov 30, 2015 at 10:14am PST @aparisianmoment (13.7k followers): Just like the name suggests, this account by @GeorgiannaLane and @photosbydcp captures moments in the city brilliantly. They take a seemingly ordinary Parisian scene and make it appear extraordinary. Check out their individual accounts as well.  A photo posted by ParisianShoeGals (@parisianshoegal) on Nov 17, 2015 at 3:01am PST @parisianshoegal (4,645 followers): There’s not a shoe to be found in this feed, but it is filled with street scenes from throughout Paris. With an emphasis on art and little-known alleys, I discover new addresses weekly. A photo posted by @ruemargaux on Nov 14, 2015 at 11:47am PST @ruemargaux (4,790 followers): Living between Paris and L.A., it’s the photos from the City of Light that particularly stand out to me. They have a softness to them, which exudes a romantic vibe like the city itself. A photo posted by Roxanne Matiz (@leparisblog) on Oct 23, 2015 at 4:42am PDT @leparisblog (9,457 followers): Roxanne Matiz’s feed is the epitome of girly photos. Think petals, pastels and pastries. A photo posted by Julien Gaulet (@frenchnakedchef) on Dec 10, 2015 at 2:39am PST @frenchnakedchef (15.2K followers): Julien Gaulet is not naked, but he is French. This chef also has talent as a photographer and showcases his hometown with a curious and creative eye. There’s also the occasional food or wine shot that’s equally as delicious as his cityscapes.   A photo posted by Nathalie The parisienne (@theparisienne) on Oct 12, 2015 at 4:19am PDT @theparisienne (5,437 followers): A mix of baubles and buildings is what you’ll find in Nathalie’s photo stream. It’s a glimpse into this stylish Parisienne’s daily life.

    Your Instagram photos made me so homesick for Paris - my beautiful city which I have visited many times as recently as August, 2015. I have a photo taken near the fountain in the Palais Royal that you might be interested in. If so, please advise me. I would be happy to share it.
