Constance’s boudoir session has been realized some months ago in the South of France. As usual, I wanted something very soft, with a mix of black&white and color films. The Rime Arodaky gowns, borrowed for the session, just contributed to highlight Constance’s natural beauty and elegance
I have a deep love story with Provence. I love the golden light down there and the way it perfectly interacts with film, especially in the greens and yellows. Charlotte & Gianmarco seem directly fallen from haven. I love how they evolve in that lavender and olive grove landscape. This wedding inspiration was realized last September in Provence, with a great team of vendors, and remains one of my favorite session.

A few weeks ago, surrounded by a great team of talents, we realized a bridal shoot inspired by Parisian elegance in the cold weather of a december morning in the City. In this beautiful place near Le Louvre, we created a delicate atmosphere, midway between a folk and natural spirit, and the parisian chic. Marion, our talented florist had prepared garlands of anemones and buttercups, flooding on the table and wooden floor, adding texture and poetry and a little bit of romance in this Parisian apartment. The dresses, made by stylist Elise Hameau, were perfect for the occasion, with elegant delicacy brought by the French lace details.

Jean-Laurent is a fellow wedding photographer. I was more than honored and touched when Jean-Laurent and Caroline asked me to realize their engagement shoot. We did it by a bright and sunny Saturday morning, in Cap-Ferret, on the edge of the Arcachon Bay. A walkaway in a small oyster village, with no one at the horizon.
This session is special to me in the sense I wanted to shoot Marie-Laure’s boudoir session with a very raw style. I wanted something very different from the softness and pastel tones I usually get from my beloved FujiFilm 400H. That’s the reason why I used Ilford Delta 3200 for once. I usually shoot that film stock during the bride’s preparation but I wanted to realize the whole session with that film stock here. I pushed it to 6400 ISO to get proper shutter speeds and that very big grain I heart. This raw grain just contributes enhancing all the softness and sensuality vehicled by Marie-Laure to me.
