How stunning is this wedding with the stylish Marie and Alexis exchanging vows in the garden of the Villa Ephrussi de Rotschild? Being the photographer of a wedding on the French Riviera is always a real pleasure for me. The venues are stunning, the light is dreamy and the food is good. What else to ask for right? I met Marie for an intimate Boudoir shoot in Paris a few weeks before her wedding and could tell right away she will be a beautiful bride. So when I saw her in her Berta gown it was a real vision of elegance and beauty. The back of this dress was just to die for. With the talented team of Lavender and Rose the guests had the most perfect experience for the wedding ceremony in the gardens followed bu an outdoor cocktail and reception under the stars.
Kathryn and Marc flew all the way from California for a Destination Wedding in France, in the beautiful ShangriLa hotel in Paris. The bride works for Monique Lhuiller the bridal designer so it is no surprise she had her bridesmaids in stunning dresses. She also chose a Inbal Dror gown for herself to have this va va voom effect and well, she achieved it. How beautiful does she look here. As a photographer it was just pure bliss to capture their all wedding in PAris from the getting ready at the Shangrila hotel, to the intimate ceremony then around Paris for couple photos and dinner in the Bois de Boulogne.
I am in love with boudoir photography. I am not even sure I like to call it Boudoir as to me it is just portrait photography in the most raw definition. No artifice, no props, just honest portraits. James did a perfect job on Lucie’s hair and make up for a look that reveals her unique beauty.
Romina and Darren came all the way from warm Australia to have their destination wedding in France. Their winter elopement in Paris was published on the International wedding Blog STYLE ME PRETTY.
“To think we said I do looking out over the Eiffel Tower and spent our wedding day walking the streets of Paris doesn’t seem real. But we did it and we have the most beautiful photos to remind us of that.”
I loved their style: Romina looked ultra chic in her Cashmere top as her wedding attire which was oh so perfect in the cold weather that day and Darren was looking dapper in his dark blue suit.
Is there a better way to start 2016 that to show you this adorable couple on their anniversary in Paris? Jessica and Danielle came to live their traveling dream in Paris and are staying here for a few months. We met on a windy day to capture on film their love story in Paris.
“We both love traveling and eating, which explains why we are currently living in Paris. About a year after we got married, we both quit our jobs, sold some of our belongings, left San Francisco and came to Paris with only two suitcases! It was a huge risk to leave everything behind but it is definitely worth it. Paris is the most amazing and beautiful city and living in the city has been a dream come true. Paris has such a great culture, amazing food, the best croissants, chocolates, wine, etc. Coming here has definitely been one of the best decisions. It has given us the ability to travel to other parts of Europe and allowed us to start our own company, PLANUARY, that is travel related – something we are both passionate about.
I fell in love with Audrey’s work years ago, once I knew we were coming to Paris I had to contact her. We booked a photoshoot before we even found a place to live (priorities!). I look at her instagram so often that my husband would say “are you stalking Audrey again?” We had such a great time on our shoot with Audrey. She is truly amazing at what she does and such a fun and real person. “

Paris being a beautiful city it doesn’t take much to do a lovely photo shoot here. When the destination wedding planner and stylist Joy contacted me to do a photo shoot in Paris with a few accessories of hers like this cute hat box it didn’t took us long to envision a girl strolling through the city with a touch of Classic beauty. It was funny to see how many persons came to our lovely model to tell her how pretty and stylish she was. They didn’t even notice we were shooting and were mesmerized by her look. Thank you to Meryl for the dress and Harold our beauty expert in Paris.
I met this elegant couple last year when I helped Vincent proposed to Vicki during a photo shoot with a surprise music band. We turned a photo session into the most epic surprise proposal in Paris. So of course Vicki had to say yes. But the story doesn’t stop here: they loved Paris so much they had to get married here a year later. They chose my favorite venue, the Chapelle Expiatoire to have their wedding ceremony in Paris and with the help of the wedding planners from Fete in France they arranged the most perfect elopement. When Vicki asked me tips about how to make the best of her wedding day for the photos I told her having a great apartment to get ready was going to look amazing. With the help of beautiful flowers and a wedding cake she sure made it happen. It was a dream to photograph for me.
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.
