Best of 2014 Wedding Photography – A year in review

First of all, I need to say thanks to all of my followers, the sweet couples who picked me as their photographer and even the ones who simply considered me,  all the incredible vendors I have worked with. I also want to thank my family and friends (photographers and non photographers :D), without whom I wouldn’t be where I am nor be who I am. I needed them around me, even from far away, and they were. So thank you everyone, I don’t always (if ever) say it but I love you all :)

In 2014, I realized something important:

I’m both lucky and brave
Lucky to have made it
And brave to have tried it

It’s not the easiest thing to move across the world, or the country for that matter. But I’m so happy I’ve done it. California has been really good to me and I will live here forever if that’s in the cards for me. I was lucky that my first couples liked my work, when, let’s be honest, it wasn’t always that good (hey, I was only starting.) And so on to the point where I was able to take that big leap of faith and go full time. I’m so grateful to have been able to live from my passion and creativity for the past 4 years. You have no idea how much it means to me to be free to live my own way and to create… Always create and tell your stories :)

I don’t know if I will always be able to do it, but right now, I’m just grateful and happy, so THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

So in 2014,  I…

  • Shot weddings. Beautiful, breathtaking, tear bringing weddings.
  • Got featured on multiple platforms
  • Went to Field trip and learned about three thousand things and met roughly the same amount of people :p
  • Met more awesome people while working or traveling
  • Booked a plane ticket for my favorite destination: Asia :)
  • Went to two other workshops (“Every Wedding is an Adventure” with Nirav + Ed Peers  and “Photo Coterie” with Dylan + Sara, Ryan Muirhead and Phil Chester)

Here are my favorite photos of 2014:

Il faut que je vous dise merci. Merci à vous qui suivez mon travail, vous, les prestataires avec lesquels j’ai travaillé, et surtout, vous, les couples qui choisissez de m’avoir comme photographe et même vous qui y avez simplement pensé. Je veux aussi remercier ma famille et mes amis (les photographes ET les non-photographes :D), sans lesquels je ne serais ni où je suis, si celle que je suis. J’avais besoin de votre présence et soutien, de près ou de loin. Je sais que je ne le dis pas souvent (voire jamais) mais je vous aime tous :)

En 2014, j’ai réalisé quelque chose d’important :

Je suis à la fois chanceuse et courageuse. Chanceuse d’avoir réussi à vivre de ma passion mais aussi courageuse d’avoir essayé.

Ce n’est pas la chose la plus facile à faire : déménager à l’autre bout du monde (ou même à l’autre bout du pays !) Et je suis tellement heureuse de m’être lancée ! La Californie est vraiment fantastique à pas mal de niveaux et j’espère rester ici le plus longtemps possible.

J’ai eu beaucoup de chance avec mes premiers couples quand, soyons honnêtes, mon travail n’était pas forcément très bon (hey, je commençais juste !) Et ainsi de suite jusqu’au point où j’ai pu prendre cette décision tellement importante de me lancer à plein temps dans la photographie. Je suis incroyablement reconnaissante d’avoir pu vivre de ma passion et créativité pendant ces quatre dernières années. Vous n’avez pas idée de ce que ça représente pour moi : pouvoir vivre comme je veux et être libre de créer… Toujours créer et raconter vos histoires :)

Je ne suis pas certaine que ce sera toujours possible mais en tous cas, aujourd’hui, je suis simplement reconnaissante et heureuse. Alors voilà : MERCI, MERCI, MERCI.

Et donc en 2014,

  • J’ai photographié des mariages magnifiques, des mariages à couper le souffle, des mariages qui m’ont mis les larmes aux yeux (et parfois même carrément fait pleurer !)
  • J’ai eu mon travail publié sur plusieurs supports (blogs, magazines…)
  • Je suis allée à Field trip où j’ai appris environ 3000 choses et rencontré à peu près le même nombre de photographes ;p
  • J’ai rencontré plein de gens super (en travaillant ou en voyageant)
  • J’ai réservé mon billet d’avion pour mon coin préféré : l’Asie :)
  • Je suis allée à deux autres workshops (“Every Wedding is an Adventure” avec Nirav + Ed Peers  et “Photo Coterie” avec Dylan + Sara, Ryan Muirhead et Phil Chester)

Voici mes images préférées (et oui, c’est toujours trop long, mais quand on aime, on ne compte pas ;p) :

San Francisco’s legendary fog is one of my favorite weather. No seriously, I love the easy-to-work-with diffuse light and the mystic aspect of it. I love how everything is soft and kinda scary at the same time. How things can appear and disappear. How you could have missed that gigantic cross, right there, because it as hidden under a white blanket.

So I had to make up extra early to shoot those two… But it was SO worth it!

Le légendaire brouillard de San Francisco fait désormais partie de ma météo préférée. Non, sérieusement, j’aime cette lumière diffuse qui rend mon travail si facile and son aspect mystique. J’aime comme tout est doux et un peu flippant aussi ! Comme les choses peuvent apparaître et disparaître. Comme on aurait pu manquer cette croix gigantesque, juste là, cachée sous un manteau blanc.

J’ai dû me lever super tôt pour photographier ces deux là… Mais ça en valait tellement la peine :)

Mariage à Grand’ Maisons Villepreux 

Well, I know it’s February 2015 but I’m not quite done with 2014 yet :) I have a few more weddings and couple sessions to post and select my favorite photos of the year. Hopefully by the end of Spring! I take my time and I kinda like that the photos never stop coming on my blog. So while I’m preparing my best of, here is a wedding I particularly enjoyed last summer in France…
