Loire Valley, France

A fairytale wedding in the French countryside

Hailing from Virginia, Christina&Sam decided a destination wedding in France was the vision for their day. They chose the Château de la Bourdaisière – a stunning XVIth century castle in the Loire Valley – as backdrop, and brought on Fête in France to help every details fall into place. Christina&Sam exchanged vows with the glorious castle as a backdrop. The reception was then held in one of the castle’s galleries, with a wonderful color setup.

A floral-filled anniversary session in Paris

Heather is the lovely face behind Myrtle&Olive, a Toronto-based talented floral designer. She contacted me a while ago to photograph her and her husband Charles, for their anniversary session in Paris. From Heather: ‘Greg Finck is one of my favorite photographers who is so immensely talented and calming to be with. It was such a memorable and fun experience designing this photoshoot with him. Our anniversary is captured so wonderfully by Greg and we are so grateful to relive our moments through tangibles!’.

A minimalist ballerina wedding inspiration

The 3rd edition of Greg Finck Workshop will be held from May 1-4th in Provence, and bookings are now open. You can find all necessary information here

This editorial was shot during last year edition of the Workshop, and perfectly designed by Sofia, from Branco Prata. As she explains: “As wedding creatives we have a constant need to improve our aesthetic, overcome our fears and evolve. Our creative inner voice wants to be challenged and we truly want to experiment new concepts and above all present meaningful designs and imagery that truly reflects who we are”.

A golden light family session in Provence

Malene and Djimi live in Seattle with their two kids Malia and Noah. To say that this family was one of my big crush of the year would be a huge understatement. On top of being beautiful inside and out, this family was so easy-going and easy to work with. Malene and Djimi got married at beautiful Mas de la Rose, in the middle of the Provence lavender fields. It was a very intimate reception, that they had imagined as a celebration of love with their family and kids. We were rewarded by an amazing golden light for sunset, in the middle of olive groves.

Paris, France

An elegant wedding table with the perfect Parisian backdrop

The art of setting a beautiful and memorable table is not one that comes easily. Last Spring, I photographed the workshop of my talented friend and designer Joy Proctor, in Paris. A beautiful design begins with inspiration, and Joy’s design for this welcome event began as an ode to Paris – the beautiful, intricate sculptures, the rich history, the traditional stone colors and romanticism at every corner. Adding the wonderful florals by Bows&Arrows Flowers, and the fine art touch of calligrapher Linea Carta, and we have the perfect tablescape.

A farewell brunch with a wine van & an ice cream stand

Inspired by a Provencal market, Natalie&Joon’s farewell brunch was a feast for the eyes! Setup at beautiful Château de Robernier, it was perfectly designed by Lavender&Rose, with dreamy fruits and vegetables stands by caterer L’Eveil des Papilles. Every little detail was a dream to shoot, from the ice cream stand, to the oh so cute wine rosé van! Ladies and gents, Provence really is paradise. See it all this way!

A glamorous destination wedding in the South of France

When the bride packs her (gorgeous!) La Tavola linens in her suitcase, and travels with them from California to France, well that’s what we call dedication! And it was beyond worth it! Natalie&Joon live in Manhattan Beach, California, and came to picture-perfect Provence to tie the knot at beautiful Château de Robernier. A perfect day planned by Lavender&Rose, with beautiful floral design by Miss Rose. And many more French special treats and details!

United States of America

My America

People who know me know that I love America. I lived there twelve years ago, and I’ll be living there again one day. I recently heard many clients actually thinking that I was an American living in Paris. I’m not. I’m French, but I love the United-States in every possible way. I love its people, its diversity, its nature and landscapes, and above all its positive mindset that makes you think that everything is possible. I remember wanting to become an entrepreneur for the first time, as I lived in North-Carolina back in 2004.
