Sonny&Ann live in Singapore, and got married last Spring at amazing Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte. A few days before the wedding, we took the opportunity of their presence in Paris to run a prewedding shoot in some famous Parisian locations. Ann wore a stunning Dior Couture dress for the occasion, inspired by Natalie Portman’s Miss Dior dress. We started the session at Palais Royal and Le Louvre, before heading to the docks of the Seine River, for a boat tour on Potel&Chabot boat.
Colleen&Matthew came all the way from Minneapolis, to have their dream wedding in Paris. They held their ceremony and reception at the Shangri-La Hotel. So far, so good! Except that the bride had decided to surprise everybody, including the groom, with a stunning red Vera Wang dress. No one had a clue, and I loved how Colleen declined the red on each and every single item of her style, from her makeup to her shoes!

Thanks to Rachael&Darren – some amazing clients from last year – I returned to Bali for my third time last summer. It was my third time but Rime’s first and I could have sworn on my life that Bali would be her happy place on Earth. And I was not wrong. There is not a single week since, when she doesn’t mention the fact of going back to the Island of the Gods. This trip was the occasion for a personal portrait session, in between the coastal line of Uluwatu, and the rice paddy fields of Ubud.
I feel honored to have counted Elie Saab as a client for a year now. This is his Haute Couture SS17 fashion show, which happened last week in Paris. This Spring/Summer collection, that comes under the name ‘The Birth of Light‘, is inspired by Egypt golden era. This is a tribute to great women who shaped the Arabic culture wether in music, cinema and dance. Between 1940 and 1960, Egyptian culture reached a climax under the lead of inspiring female charachers such as Oum Kalthoum, Hoda Shaarawi or Doria Shafik, who were masters in their art and fought for women’s rights. This is a tribute to women’ beauty and inner strength in a dazzling array of creations.

Eva&Jon came all the way from the United-States to tie the knot in Paris, for a wedding day that ticks every box you might ever have dreamed of. A stunning Monique Lhuillier blush gown. A beautiful historical venue in Paris. Luscious blush florals we can’t stop thinking about. And finally dancing the night away with your new spouse in a gilt-edged ballroom. This black tie affair has it all in spades! The day was perfectly planned by Loli Events, and cherry on the cake… all of the paperwork was designed by the bride, who owns Fat Bunny Press studio!

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!

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.

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.
