Light

Personal

With the growing interest on film photography amongst European wedding photographers, I have been approached multiple times over the past 12 months by wedding photographers eager to know more about film photography. Both from a technical and business standpoint. I’ve been questioning myself for long, to know if I had something specific to offer, given the numerous workshops already up and running on the market. After thinking that through, the answer was yes and I could definitely share my experience in shooting weddings on film, as well as my business background. I’ve decided to share it and put that at the service of photographers being at the edge of switching their business to film, and wondering which stage to begin with.

I however wanted to add something more to this workshop than just my personal experience. That’s why I gathered a holistic team of 12 creatives, who are amongst the best wedding vendors on the European market. It was also important to me to have the physical presence of my beloved lab – Richard Photo Lab – so that Brian (owner) and Sophia (marketing director) can speak about how your lab can become your key business partner in your venture, just like they did for me.

I’m thrilled to announce the kick off of Light.

A colonial hacienda wedding inspiration in Mexico

Editorial

This hacienda wedding inspiration was shot in Mexico a couple weeks ago, while attending the fabulous Jose Villa’s workshop near Guadalajara. This styled shoot literally gathered a concentrated of great wedding vendors and it has been an honor to shoot such beauty despite a rainy Mexican weather. I absolutely love the pastel tones from the details, reflecting with the hacienda sand color palette, and our models tanned skin tones. All credits are mentioned at the bottom of this post.

A gypsy-inspired wedding in wild and secret Camargue

Wedding

The South of France wedding scene is all about Provence and the French Riviera. However, le Mas de Peint, a hidden gem lying right in the middle of the Camargue, presents the ideal setting for a fabulous day. This historical mansion offers the perfect Camargue experience, and a fabulous backdrop for a wild though elegant wedding day. That’s where Elodie and Bertrand, two French living in Peru, had decided to tie the knot. A beautiful summer day in the middle of wild bulls, flamingos, and wild white horses. A true-gipsy inspired wedding, with a real gipsy band and dancer. What an unforgettable day!

Nature Queen

Editorial

[Words from designer Nessa Buonomo La Mariée aux Pieds Nus]

It all started with this amazing  antique crown found by French Antique Wedding. An ancient and mysterious gilded bridal crown, which has obsessed me for months. I wanted to stage a natural, captivating and effortlessly-beautiful bride around this crown. I dreamed about a not-so-white bridal gown, something earthy hued, with a soft green touch that would remind us of nature. The dresses from Atelier Anonyme were perfect, simple and delicate for that mission. We have then imagined a unique lychen-green silk dress, absolutely pure and flawless, which has been taylor-made for that shoot. A green meadow in the Normandy countryside and the special light of a French cloudy day were enough to complete the background for our beautiful bride, our Nature Queen.

A modern and minimalist wedding inspiration in Paris

Editorial

I love minimalist design above all. My home would speak for itself if you saw it. No fancy details or colliding colors or materials. I heart the idea of designing a setting with the fewest possible things, just the declination of two colors and the focus on light and materials. We designed this styled shoot with Made in You for Faubourg St. Sulpice, and wanted that kind of atmosphere. Get away from the traditional wedding codes and just focus on the basics.

An intimate and charming destination wedding in Tuscany

Wedding

Ciara and Mark are from Belfast. I shared with you the pictures of their engagement session some weeks ago. Here is their wedding day, located in Villa Piaggia, right between Sienna and Florence. A scenic venue in the heart of Tuscany countryside, where fine food and wine are everywhere. A beautiful day for this adorable Irish couple who flew in to find some sun and enjoy Tuscany way of life.
