Chantilly, France

A fashion-forward engagement session in a French Château

Peggy&Andy came all the way from Hong-Kong to get engaged at glorious Château de Chantilly. This was the first part of a two-step engagement session, as we headed to a more relaxed session in the center of Paris after that. Due to the timing constraints of the day, we needed to compose with some harsh summer light in Chantilly, but I think the result turned out amazingly!

A green and lush backyard wedding in California

Lauren and Travis are from California, and they got married in Lauren’s grandmother’s backyard, where her mother and father also got married thirty years ago. It was like a beautiful jungle secret garden, where amazing designer Heather, from Amorology did her magic. She brought in fairy lights in lanterns and more candles than you can imagine, that made the whole evening so dreamy. Inspired by their story and meeting at a local bar, The Bungalow, Heather took a twist on things and did a boho Jungalow botanic romantic vibe.

Rime Arodaky S/S017

This is Rime Arodaky‘s Spring/Summer ‘017 campaign, shot in Paris a few weeks ago. These short dresses are designed for civil ceremonies, and vehicle a fresh and free-minded spirit. All designs were shot in collaboration with Luna Bea hair accessories and Crystal Eclipse Crowns, which appear on most of the photographs. Contrary to my wedding work, this photoshoot was realized on digital (not film) with a Hasselblad medium format camera. The photoshoot was realized in studio in Paris.

You can find the collection and shop online here.

Loire Valley, France

A fairytale wedding in the French countryside

Hailing from Virginia, Christina&Sam decided a destination wedding in France was the vision for their day. They chose the Château de la Bourdaisière – a stunning XVIth century castle in the Loire Valley – as backdrop, and brought on Fête in France to help every details fall into place. Christina&Sam exchanged vows with the glorious castle as a backdrop. The reception was then held in one of the castle’s galleries, with a wonderful color setup.

A floral-filled anniversary session in Paris

Heather is the lovely face behind Myrtle&Olive, a Toronto-based talented floral designer. She contacted me a while ago to photograph her and her husband Charles, for their anniversary session in Paris. From Heather: ‘Greg Finck is one of my favorite photographers who is so immensely talented and calming to be with. It was such a memorable and fun experience designing this photoshoot with him. Our anniversary is captured so wonderfully by Greg and we are so grateful to relive our moments through tangibles!’.

This editorial was shot during last year edition of the Workshop, and perfectly designed by Sofia, from Branco Prata. As she explains: “As wedding creatives we have a constant need to improve our aesthetic, overcome our fears and evolve. Our creative inner voice wants to be challenged and we truly want to experiment new concepts and above all present meaningful designs and imagery that truly reflects who we are”.

Provence, France

A golden light family session in Provence

Malene and Djimi live in Seattle with their two kids Malia and Noah. To say that this family was one of my big crush of the year would be a huge understatement. On top of being beautiful inside and out, this family was so easy-going and easy to work with. Malene and Djimi got married at beautiful Mas de la Rose, in the middle of the Provence lavender fields. It was a very intimate reception, that they had imagined as a celebration of love with their family and kids. We were rewarded by an amazing golden light for sunset, in the middle of olive groves.

Paris, France

An elegant wedding table with the perfect Parisian backdrop

The art of setting a beautiful and memorable table is not one that comes easily. Last Spring, I photographed the workshop of my talented friend and designer Joy Proctor, in Paris. A beautiful design begins with inspiration, and Joy’s design for this welcome event began as an ode to Paris – the beautiful, intricate sculptures, the rich history, the traditional stone colors and romanticism at every corner. Adding the wonderful florals by Bows&Arrows Flowers, and the fine art touch of calligrapher Linea Carta, and we have the perfect tablescape.
