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.
Caitlin and Patrick live in Seattle and tied the knot no longer than last month in London (Patrick being British). I can’t wait to share with you that beautiful wedding in the English countryside! But in the meantime, here is Caitlin&Patrick’s engagement session in Joshua Tree National Park, California. These two love to travel and couldn’t wait for another road trip with their darling dog Moxie. Moxie was the best model for the day, embellished by her flower crown, and we had an amazing sunset in the park!

“When Australian couple, Nissa and Nick swooped up their guests for a destination wedding, it meant the adventure of a lifetime. I’m talking a wedding held at a French castle straight out of a classic fairytale. Nissa looked every bit the bride in a Galia Lahav gown, with makeup by Vata Beauty, and the always incredible Greg Finck captured the photographs that are certain to become treasured heirlooms.” Stephanie Weers, Style Me Pretty.

This is Marchesa new Bridal Collection 2017, that I had the honor to photograph in New York City last week for Style Me Pretty. I am so in love with that Maison and the wonderful designs of Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig. Everything here is so elegant and we are in awe with the explosions of lace, tulle and chiffon. This new collection was displayed at the beautiful Canoe Studios, with a wonderful sunset light over the New York City skyline.
This is Rime Arodaky Bridal 017 collection, which was presented in New York City last Thursday for the Bridal Week. In this collection, our icon reflects the seasons that go by. Synonym of softness and purity, yet sensual and free, the gowns evolve through time. Our muse parades embellished by milky soft fabrics resembling divine immaculate snow. Shining like a night star with shimmering snowflakes. Then, she subtly reveals delicate flowers, like snow reveals flower buds in Spring. Mystical. Ceremonial.
Kelly and Andrew came from Houston, Texas, to organize the wedding of their dreams on the French Riviera. For the venue, they opted for Hotel Belles Rives, an Art Deco villa turned five-star boutique hotel sitting directly on the Mediterranean Sea that F. Scott Fitzgerald lived in while he wrote Tender is The Night. For the theme, Kelly chose to compliment the surrounding Mediterranean Sea by utilizing shades of blue. They trust Wanderlust Wedding for the planning and design, and Big Day for the floral design and decors.

“The driving force for design inspiration for this shoot stems from the incredibly thought out minimalist modern approach taken by Couvent des Minimes. Using Couvent des Minimes interior and exterior designs as a jumping off point I wanted to make sure that the overall shoot design would resonate with individuals who appreciate modern minimalism, prefer clean design aesthetics over an abundance, and have a soft spot for unconventional design with exceptional taste.” Stephanie, Nomad Republic.
