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.
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!

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.

This is the time of the year when the world of fashion meets in Paris for the Autumn Winter 16/17 Couture Fashion Week. Yesterday, I was honored and humbled to shoot Elie Saab new Haute Couture collection, from backstage and runway show, to the cocktail party held for clients and celebrities. A deep dive into that temple of fashion. This reportage has been shot in digital for once, for delivery timing reasons to the client.

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!

With the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop and a secluded section of Malibu’s rocky coast as a stage, this wedding editorial came to life. Preferring minimalism over the ornate, simple coastal elements were used to create a dreamy seaside table: blue iridescent mussel shells, weathered driftwood escort cards, white coral. Each place was set simply with fine white china and gold flatware, and adorned with a simple mussel shell, anchoring each place card to a white linen napkin.

Eva&Peter live in New York City, and I instantly fell in love with them. They are so easy-going, with a great sense of humour, and hanging out with them in the West Village for their engagement session – featured on Style Me Pretty here – was pure joy. Peter’s family is from Puerto Rico, and that’s all naturally that they had decided to organize their wedding in San Juan. Saying that I was not disappointed by that wonderful day in Old San Juan is a huge understatement. I fell in love with Puerto Rico and was in awe all day capturing that beautiful wedding.

So honored to be named one of the 19 top wedding photographers in the United-States by Harper’s Bazaar. Even though clients’ excitement, recognition and delight remain what makes my activity a dream job, this is a moment we’re going to appreciate at the studio, as a reward to the all of the hard work accomplished in the last couple of years!
“You have secured an ideal venue, are collaborating with a planner who anticipates your every need–and if they’re worth their salt, they’ll likely refer a photographer from this list. Your decor, dress, flowers and cake can all look perfect on the day of, but it’s the skillful shooting and the fly-on-the-wall discretion that will shape your memories of the day as you look back on your event’s styling and spontaneous moments.”
