Best time for your photo session in Lavender Fields of Provence?
My favorite months for a wedding or a photo session in Provence are May and June (Spring in France). I love those months because the weather is lovely. Nature is beautiful and you don’t have too much tourist. This is great for intimate and fun pictures. After Spring, September (late summer) is also an amazing month for your Elopement wedding in the South of France.
You may have your holiday in summer, however, July and August are the hottest months. The temperatures can go up to 40° C (104°F) in Provence countryside.
The lavender season is late June to late-July (early summer in France). If you want the nicest lavender pictures, you should plan your Elopement or photo session in Provence within those months. Early June the lavender is most of the time not fully flourished. Past mid-July, the farmers start harvesting it. You can sometimes find lavender fields with flowers in early August, but they are very few. For me, the best time to get crazy lavender pictures is early July.
