It is safe to say that KT Merry has been a huge source of inspiration to me over the past years. That’s one of the many reasons why I’ve been overwhelmed by joy and excitation, when she contacted me to shoot her session with her husband Chad in the streets of Paris. We spent an amazing afternoon together, going from Montmartre, to the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame de Paris. I had KT and Chad discover some of my favorite treats in Paris, and I hope you will like the walk with us !
Allison contacted me some months ago, as she wanted to book a family session in Provence. Her family was indeed coming from California to spend a couple of days in the South of France, so as to celebrate Allison’s parents’ 40th wedding anniversary. The Provence weather was unusual that day, but I have met the most genuine, warm and kind people, and I have felt so blessed and grateful to have shared that moment with them. And that, to me, was a pure moment of family happiness.
Celine and Thomas, a sweet couple from Hong-Kong, had contacted me to shoot their engagement session in the very heart of Provence. I absolutely love the area between Saint-Rémy and Les Baux de Provence, which is why I suggested them to stay at the amazing Hameau des Baux. That is where we started to shoot, just before heading to the deep forests in the Alpilles Massif. The overcast weather that day has amplified the beauty of the pastel colors and Celine’s pale blue gown.
This is my last campaign shoot for bridal designer Rime Arodaky. Rime is just launching a capsule line intended for playful and mischievous brides, wishing to extend their d-day the time of a getaway. That campaign was shot in Southern California some weeks ago, on a sunny beach between Los-Angeles and San-Diego. Rime designed this line thinking of Stevie Nicks boho style and the Coachella festival vibe. Every piece carries a city, area, or street name that evokes her California dream.

Amy&Jon, a cute couple from Newport Beach, are celebrating their twenty years together in just a few days now. That’s quite an incredible number for such a young and beautiful couple. I was thrilled when Jon contacted me to shoot their anniversary session a while ago. The initial session was planned in Paris but it suddenly changed when Amy and Jon changed their travel plans. That’s when we decided to have that session in the middle of the Nevada desert as I was traveling on the West Coast. A boho-inspired session in the Valley of Fire, with an amazing dress from Free People and sublime pastel colors.
Le Mas de la Rose is a hidden gem in the heart of Provence, surrounded by olive groves and lavender fields. That is in that elegant though typical Provence venue that Fabienne and Carlo had decided to tie the knot. Fabienne is from Switzerland and Carlo from the US, but they had decided to organize a destination wedding by themselves in the South of France, in order to delight their guests and enjoy the Provence easy lifestyle. The beauty of the day has been emphasized by the sublime floral design by Laetitia C.

Natalie and Alex are a very sweet couple from New-York, and I’ll have the privilege to shoot their wedding in Los-Angeles next September. They flew in Paris for their engagement session the day just after New-Year’s Eve. A cold though sunny winter day in the City, and a session which took us from the Eiffel Tower to Montmartre. I can’t wait to shoot this adorable couple’s d-day in sunny California next Fall !
Collaborating with Majenia, is always a recipe for success. Behind her gentle and sweet character, she is one of the most creative wedding designers in France. For that editorial shoot in Provence, we decided to go for a vegetal and organic green inspiration. Nothing fancy, but just a variation of greens, with a focus on the textures and materials. Add to that the fabulous – as always – floral design of Laetitia C., and a fun touch brought by the laser cut items by Ma Femme Prefere Le Bleu, and you have the perfect combination. The soft though elegant beauty made by Emilie Green and two stunning Rime Arodaky‘s gowns brought the last touches to this editorial.
