Brooke and Cameron live in Hermosa Beach, California, and they just had their baby Charlotte a few months ago. When Brooke told me she wanted to do a family session – which would be Charlotte’s first one – I was really excited. I met them in Cameron’s parents’ beautiful house in Palos Verdes, and we spent a couple of hours together. I can’t say enough great things about this couple, and the wonderful family that they have become. And of course, the amazing California light was part of the excitement!

Hana&Mahi are a couple from Dubai, who got married at wonderful Château de la Napoule, in Cannes. This was undoubtedly one of my most beautiful weddings of last year, perfectly designed and planned as usual by Lavender&Rose, declining a green color palette. Floral design by Miss Rose by Perrine was at the center of this beautiful day, with an amazing structure for the main table. Food was absolutely exquisite, by Potel&Chabot.
When my friend Katie Julia asked me to rebuild her visual identity, I was immediately seduced by her project. Katie is a sweet wedding photographer from the UK and we’ve been knowing each other for almost 3 years now. She approached me as she wanted a natural portrait session in Paris. More specifically she rent an apartment in Montmartre, and we spent the day shooting inside and outside, with amazing outfits by Rime Arodaky.
Ideally located in the heart of Provence, Le Domaine de la Baume is a stunning venue standing in a natural heaven. That’s where Sam&Joe – a sweet couple from London – decided to stay the week before their wedding. I will share their majestic wedding later in the week, but I first wanted to share their beautiful pre-wedding photo shoot. A perfect morning spent together, to get to know each other before the d-day, and a lot of fun !
Nicole and Jordan are a sweet couple from North-Carolina, who have been married for a couple of years. We immediately had a connection as I used to study in North-Carolina for my MBA 10 years ago, and I love that part of the US. During their trip to France, Jordan wanted to surprise Nicole with an anniversary session in the middle of Provence lavender fields. This was on Nicole’s bucket list, and Jordan contacted me some weeks before the shoot to set up a typical French picnic. I asked help to my dear friend Laetitia C. for the floral design, and we set up this nice surprise together.
This is the story of a friendship: Samar Seraqui de Buttafoco, owner of the fashion blog ‘Une Libanaise à Paris‘, and Rime Arodaky, bridal designer. Samar and Rime both heart fashion, life, and love. These common interests brought them together to create a heather gray cotton sweater, with the mention ‘Habibi‘: ‘My love‘ in Arabic.
I was lucky enough to shoot the Habibi campaign, and direct Samar, who wore the sweater along a day in Paris. Half of the sweater sales will be donated to Syria Charity, an organization helping Syrian children victims of the war. This first collaboration will lead to putting back in place windows and a heating system in a mixed grade school in Aleppo, so that children can start learning again in decent conditions.
The Amalfi Coast moves a lot of stuff in your imagination when you hear the name. I can’t start to describe the beauty of this region of Italy, so I’ll leave it to photographs. Heather&Sean are one of the kindest couple I’ve met since I’ve been shooting weddings. They are from San Francisco, and had organized a very intimate wedding – with just 30 guests – at wonderful Hotel Caruso, in Ravello.
