Eva and PJ live in New-York City, and will get married next April in San Juan, Puerto-Rico. I literally can’t wait to meet them next Spring in the Caribbean for their wedding in an old Puerto-Rican covent. In the meantime, I had the privilege to shoot their engagement in New-York City. A morning walk between the West Village and the Chelsea Market, through the High Line, for this very sweet couple. Oh and yes… also a stunning pair of Valentino !
Mathilde & Maurice both live in Monaco and this is all naturally that they had decided to organize their wedding day between The Rock and the peninsula of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

This is a selection of photographs I made in California during my travels there over the past two years. This state is so inspiring to me and I love to come back often in this region of the world. Light is amazing, people are the nicest, and the diversity of landscapes is breathtaking, with beaches, forests, mountains, meadows, you name it ! These photographs were made alongside Road 1, from Point Reyes to Carmel, with stops in San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, or Yosemite National Park.
Anna and Nuri came from St Petersburg for their engagement session in the middle of lavender fields. When Anna contacted me a year ago, she admitted that being photographed in Provence lavender fields was her child’s dream. We started the session on the hills overlooking the Provence valley, when Anna and Nuri could enjoy a refreshing homemade cocktail made of local organic Limoncello. Anna looked stunning in her purple dress, that she had chosen for the occasion so as to match the lavender color palette. We then headed to two beautiful lavender fields to enjoy the sunset and the golden hour. Anna and Nuri looked stunning and really enjoyed the moment. This is honestly one of my favorite engagement session so far.

Rory and Brice are both from Australia and had been living in foggy London for years. They suddenly decided to follow their dreams, and settle down in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, on the French Riviera. Quite a weather change, and the magic of waking up everyday with a view on the picturesque Côte d’Azur ! Brice recently proposed, and that’s when we decided to organize their engagement session on the French Riviera. We went for a walk on the beautiful peninsula of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, wandering between the sea shore and the port. We ended this beautiful evening by a dinner together on Beaulieu-sur-Mer boardwalk. What a beautiful evening with the sweetest couple !
