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 !
The Marche Region in Italy is unknown to many. It is however breathtakingly beautiful thanks to a very rich artistic, cultural and culinary heritage. The region is full of amazing landscapes with vineyard-covered hills plunging into the sea, and wonderful venues such as Villa Buonaccorsi. This majestic venue located on the hills was the perfect backdrop to this shoot. Designer Federica, from Honey and Cinnamon imagined this boudoir shoot, inspired by the architectural style of the venue, dating back from 1500. The interior design of the venue is indeed full of walls in neutral colors and empty rooms echoing of ancient splendors with frescoed ceilings and huge windows facing the interior patio.

Danyi and Lawrence certainly have some style and taste. They came all the way from Hong-Kong for their engagement session in Paris, and spent some serious shopping time before their photoshoot. Danyi started the session with a stunning Indonesian-inspired dress by Biyan, and she wore antique ornaments, which she bought on Les Puces de Saint-Oue,, Paris biggest flea market. She then changed to a Fabienne Alagama wedding dress for some shots under the Eiffel Tower. Lawrence was in the pure Parisian style, with his bowtie and beret. I absolutely loved shooting that sweet couple and wish them a wonderful wedding day in Hong-Kong.
Lying on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Le Château de la Napoule is a medieval castle full of French charm and elegance. Beauty is everywhere there, from the patios, to the gardens, and the amazing terrace looking down on the Bay of Cannes. This elegant venue just calls for summer laziness and easy breeze lifestyle. That’s the venue, which had been picked by Diana and Jason, a sweet couple from Vancouver, to tie the knot. A beautiful day, perfectly designed by Lavender&Rose Weddings, with amazing flowers by Yeoman’s Flowers, owned by the uncle of the bride. What a beautiful day on the Côte d’Azur !

Les Domaines de Patras is a hidden gem in the heart of Provence, and the venue I had picked to host the first edition of the Light Workshop : a 4-days film photography retreat, hosting 17 wedding photographers from 10 different countries.
Immersed in the middle of olive groves and lavender fields, we spent 4 days enjoying the Provence easy lifestyle and food, and learning about film photography, both from a technical and business point of view. Each day was paced by a styled shoot, designed by some of the best European vendors. All of them are mentioned in the credits here below, and this could not have happened without them. Credits go to these amazing and talented individuals. Merci !
