Let’s face it. Paris is beautiful but nothing compares with the natural light of Provence. As a film shooter for weddings in France I must say shooting in Provence in the picturesque Chateau Margui was a little too easy. With the styling of the talented team of La Farique a Reves, it was even easier to photograph the gorgeous Galia Lahav gown. I was raised in the South of France and studied for 5 years in Aix en Provence so weddings on the French Riviera have a special place in my heart. These photos were published on STYLE ME PRETTY and I must say I am proud of the team who worked so hard to make it happen.

I am in love with the Classic timeless Paris I dream of. When this couple chose the Musee Rodin garden for their ceremony and to have their wedding reception at the Meurice I knew it would be my ideal day. Yesterday the wedding was published on STYLE ME PRETTY and couldn’t be more humbled to read the couple’s story and why they chose Paris to get married. I always ask my couples on their wedding day when we are in the car traveling from one location to the next why they chose Paris and I feel so blessed when they answer they saw my photography and fell in love with the idea of eloping to Paris.”One night while Garret was cooking dinner, I suddenly said to him,” Why don’t we just forget about all this wedding planning and get married in Paris?” I had been skimming through pictures on Style Me Pretty and had come across a number of stunning photographs by Audrey on the site.” Well they chose well as their wedding day was pure elegance and fun.

What happen when you surround yourself with the best wedding vendors in Paris? A romantic inspiration photo shoot that you dreamed of for so long. I have been a photographer in Paris for many years and slowy but surely build a network of amazing talents in Paris that I trust. It is an amazing feeling to work with such dedicated people. The flowers of Lily Paloma were absolutely stunning and fitted perfectly the romantic feel of the Galia Lahav wedding gown, flowing in the wind that day. I am a huge fan of classic calligraphy and Joy did again a perfect job: even the paper she chose was delicate.
I lived in New York City nearly 10 years ago. I always dreamed of the city even before I became a photographer. Returning there for photo shoots was special to me. Shooting at sunrise on the Brooklyn bride was an unbelievable experience. It looked like a movie set! This adorable couple had to cancel their trip to Paris and their anniversary shoot they planned with me but we were lucky to be able to meet in NYC and still do this photo session. Of course as soon as the stylish PC arrived with her pink tutu skirt and high heels I felt the spirit of Sex and the City was with us. Today this anniversary photo shoot in on STYLE ME PRETTY and I couldn’t be more humbled to see my work published on such a leader blog for brides planning their wedding.
Excited today to see the wedding in Paris of Stephanie and Brandon on WEDDING SPARROW . The couple was so elegant and sweet to each other. They decided to elope in Paris after seeing my photos online and that couldn’t make me more honored and humbled by their trust in me to photograph their wedding in Paris. Their choice to rent a classic car was a great idea and it allowed us to capture the most stunning photos in Paris.

How adorable is this couple in Paris? The stylish Jean and her handsome fiance Nick came all the way from Boston to have their engagement photos in Paris shot on film. Jean has the influential blog EXTRA PETITE where she shares hes best tips when it comes to Fashion. So it is not surprising she looked amazing in her custom dresses (read more on her post HERE). We started in the rental apartment in Paris as we wanted my now signature balcony shot, then we went through the city for photos by the Eiffel Tower and the Seine river. As a photographer in Paris I know all the best locations to get a real feel of the city.
As a destination photographer based in Paris, I get to travel a lot mostly in Provence and all over Europe like Italy but I must say the glowing light of California is a must. Like all my Boudoir and editorial work I wanted to keep it clean and timeless. Serena is a photographer in California and wonderful mum of three so I wanted to capture her natural beauty. We went shopping for the suit in the morning, had lunch laughing over our respective lives then went down to the beach at sunset. What a perfect day! Film Scanned by CARMENCITALAB
With a stylish bride like Kea I knew her wedding in Paris would be my favorite event of the year. With the help of the best wedding planners in Paris LES TETES CHERCHEUSES, she planned an elegant wedding in Paris. As a photographer it was a dream wedding: the most beautiful Suite in Paris, a Monique Lhuillier gown and a reception in a Parisian apartment filled with cake and champagne. It is not surprising BRIDES chose this wedding for a full feature in their last magazine on stands now. So pick a copy!
I love Pinterest and I spotted this wedding gown a long time ago. So when I had the opportunity to photograph it in Paris for a wedding inspiration it was a pure day of joy. Imagine me playing with this dress in Paris with my film camera just smiling ear to ear. With a talented team of vendors in Paris we planned this dream wedding in Paris.

When a photo shoot is scheduled on a hot day I say “Get in the pool”. It might get even hotter actually right? Seriously I had this idea for long time now than you can mix an engagement photo shoot and a Boudoir one. Well here my best interpretation of it as a photographer. I styled this shoot myself as I wanted to keep it true to my vision. As a photographer I always infuse my feel for the moment like an Art Director and will direct you for the best photos of your engagement photo shoot or Boudoir, being in the street of Paris or on a beach in Bali.

This is all I love in an intimate wedding in Paris. A relaxing time to get ready with your groom to be and children in a beautiful Parisian apartment rental, a cake covered in blush flowers and a stroll in the city to all the best locations for couple photos in Paris. Lisa has an amazing sense of style and with the help of her planner Yanique she put together a great elopement in Paris: as an art director I love when my couples value the photography and work with me on the setting and timing to get the best images. It takes a team to experience a perfect day in Paris. This wedding was published on STYLE ME PRETTY.

Just you. Sometimes getting married doesn’t need to be 200 guests, a big reception with a giant wedding cake and 15 bridesmaids. It can be just the two of you exchanging vows in an intimate location in Paris after getting ready together in a beautiful apartment rental. That simple and yet beautiful. I loved that Heather listened to my recommendation to find a perfect place to get ready. As it was a winter wedding in Paris having a beautiful indoor was key to the photos. As your wedding photographer in Paris I will be happy to work with you before your big day to ensure we capture together the best photo and light is key. When you hire a photographer for your wedding you also hire a stylist and an art director so trust us.
I can’t help myself. I turn any shoot into a little Boudoir photo shoot. Very French maybe, not sure. Being during the getting ready of a bride on her wedding day or an engagement shoot, if you give me a beautiful Parisian apartment I will find the way to do a few intimate portraits. You don’t need much: a white shirt, a nice pair of heels and an attitude. As a photographer in Paris I get inspired by the beautiful interiors of the apartments here with their cute balconies.
