A Paris engagement with a stunning Dior Couture dress

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.

A glamorous wedding in Paris with a red dress

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!

Uluwatu, Bali

A portrait session in Uluwatu, Bali

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.

Elie Saab Haute Couture SS17

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.

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.
