Rime Arodaky 017

This is Rime Arodaky Bridal 017 collection, which was presented in New York City last Thursday for the Bridal Week. In this collection, our icon reflects the seasons that go by. Synonym of softness and purity, yet sensual and free, the gowns evolve through time. Our muse parades embellished by milky soft fabrics resembling divine immaculate snow. Shining like a night star with shimmering snowflakes. Then, she subtly reveals delicate flowers, like snow reveals flower buds in Spring. Mystical. Ceremonial.

Cap d'Antibes, France

A coral and blue destination wedding on the French Riviera

Kelly and Andrew came from Houston, Texas, to organize the wedding of their dreams on the French Riviera. For the venue, they opted for Hotel Belles Rives, an Art Deco villa turned five-star boutique hotel sitting directly on the Mediterranean Sea that F. Scott Fitzgerald lived in while he wrote Tender is The Night. For the theme, Kelly chose to compliment the surrounding Mediterranean Sea by utilizing shades of blue. They trust Wanderlust Wedding for the planning and design, and Big Day for the floral design and decors.

Modern same sex wedding editorial in the South of France

“The driving force for design inspiration for this shoot stems from the incredibly thought out minimalist modern approach taken by Couvent des Minimes. Using Couvent des Minimes interior and exterior designs as a jumping off point I wanted to make sure that the overall shoot design would resonate with individuals who appreciate modern minimalism, prefer clean design aesthetics over an abundance, and have a soft spot for unconventional design with exceptional taste.” Stephanie, Nomad Republic.

Uluwatu, Bali

A beach engagement session in Bali

Rachael&Darren are a Scottish couple living in the Netherlands. They used to live in Asia though, and traveled a lot to Bali, which is their happy place. I fully get them as I heart Bali so much myself, and was lucky enough to travel there a couple of times over the past years. A couple of days before their wedding day, we shot Rachael&Darren’s engagement on a beach in Uluwatu.

Los-Angeles, California

A white and green persian wedding in Los-Angeles

Natalie and Alexander both live in New-York City and I had the pleasure to photograph their winter engagement in Paris a few months ago. Natalie’s family being from Beverly Hills, that’s all naturally that they had decided to organize their wedding in Los-Angeles. A beautiful Persian wedding with a stunning set up and a lot of joy and dancing! I am particularly in love with the huge wedding party!

Paris, France

A storybook Parisian wedding inspiration

This photoshoot was created for Joy Proctor‘s Workshop in Paris. Joy asked me to be part of the speakers for her styling workshop, and to photograph the story she had imagined. This photoshoot was inspired by Parisian elegance, and this young lady is waiting – in her classical and elegant Parisian apartment – for her guests to arrive at the prewedding party she’s having. I love everything in this inspiration, but particularly the marvellous bespoke blouse, designed by bridal designer Yolan Cris.

Hollywood, California

LoHo Bride

Already one of the hottest destinations in bridal, the arrival of the second (highly anticipated) LoHo Bride boutique, proved an event and an evening, not to be missed. Opening its doors in chic West Hollywood, LA brides finally have somewhere suitably luxe yet relaxed, in which to seek out their perfect gown, an edit and a space befitting that California bride vibe. I got the honor to shoot that opening last March, and here are some sneak peeks!
