Arnau and Corina both live in Mountain View, California. Corina works in the Silicon Valley, while Arnau is a wedding photographer working on the West Coast and Europe. They met in Barcelona, where she is from. Arnau and Corina wanted a genuine engagement shoot in a natural and green landscape. That’s the reason why we went scouting locations above San Jose, and found a random green hill with nothing but grass and an isolated tree. All images shot with Kodak Portra 400.
When the bride is a famous hair and make-up artist in Paris, getting ready is a piece of cake ! I already presented you Candice and Pierre, the adorable hawaiian-french couple who got engaged under the blossoming cherry trees in Paris here. This is their wedding now, by a chilly Spring day in the French countryside near Lyon. An intimate garden wedding with friends from around the world, some lily of the valley, a stunning Rime Arodaky gown, and a 1969 red Mustang. Color images were shot with FujiFilm 400H, black&whites with Ilford Delta 3200.
I constantly strive to provide my clients with the best experience. To me, the relationship with my clients doesn’t end once the wedding is behind. It is really important that my couples keep something tangible after their d-day and for the years to come. As a film shooter, it is also crucial to print my work, which is why I deliver 300 6×4,5 proof prints with each of my wedding packaging. These are printed by Richard Photo Lab in the United-States, and are delivered in a fine art silk box custom-made for me by Peach Linen. All wedding packagings also include a dvd with all the digital negatives (available for wedding packages only).
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.
