Candice comes from Hawaï and Pierre from Lyon. They met in Paris as Candice is a fashion hairdresser in the City. As Candice has a cherry tree branch tattooed on her forearm, it was important to me to capture their engagement session in the beginning of Spring time in Paris, when the cherry trees surrounding the Eiffel Tower start blooming. I can’t wait for these two’s wedding in May in the vineyards near Lyon.
This is a preview of the ruby and green Parisian chic editorial shoot I realized some weeks ago for the new collection of Orchidée de Soie. The aim of this shoot was to highlight the great craftsmanship and accessories hand-made by Orchidée de Soie. We wanted to set the scene in a chic Parisian apartment, and brought touches of ruby and green through the flowers, antique books, and some pomegranates.
Tessa comes from California and Sebastien is a Parisian. They met in Paris and have been living in Montmartre ever since, reason why they contacted me to have a couple session in this part of the City. Some days before the shoot, Sebastien however called me and informed me that he would propose during the session, what Tessa obviously didn’t know. I’m so thankful to Tessa and Sebastien to have made me live one of the most emotional moment I’ve shot, and I’m now looking forward to their wedding next winter.
Some weeks ago, we decided to shoot a groom’s preparation, just before he heads to his wedding. We shot in a very bright and modern apartment, just in front of St Eustache church, and Leon our model wore a suit specifically designed for the occasion by Faubourg St Sulpice.
With a team of talented vendors, we had been thinking for quite some time about a wedding inspiration which would be really different, very modern, and could inspire brides and grooms in search for a new form of urban romanticism. We envisioned a mix of black and white geometric forms, wild flowers, and a touch of gold to add in some glamour.
