Fairytale Wedding in the French CountrysideAmélia & Paul

Fairytale Wedding in the French Countryside Mariage au Manoir des Prévanches

I don’t know where to start with this one! You see, I was very anxious to shoot it because I knew it was going to be a three days wedding, starting in Paris. I also knew there was going to be a ton of (amazing) decoration since the bride and groom work in the industry and had started the planning years prior.

It was a lot of back and forth emails to organize everything and the day before, I ended up staying in Paris, in a lovely apartment. I remember being so excited I barely slept during the three days! As a result, I was running on coffee… and well, some sunshine.

I work with a lot of videographers, although not always, but this time, I became fast friend with him,  like a friend you make on the first day of a camping trip as a child, and spend the rest of the summer having a blast with. The entire vendor crew felt like friends after the three days I must say! It was a lot of running around, laughing, capturing (or attempting to capture!) every single details that made that wedding so special and beautiful.

Amélia and Paul have been together forever. They met really young and made it through thick and thin. It was so touching to hear about their story and how they’re still so much in love with each other. Of course, I loved all the fabulous details, the insanely gorgeous flowers everywhere, the swing for the ceremony and the whole fun, relax picnic vibe throughout the entire week end, but, for once, I also really loved the behind the scenes, the cute accommodations and being so exhausted and laughing to tears, trying to make coffee with a broken machine at something A.M.

People were all so supportive and fun, the food was fantastic (but of course, living in the US now, everything I eat in France IS fantastic) and I couldn’t tell you what I loved most. I know one thing for sure, I’ll never forget this wedding, were I to shoot weddings for another 50 years :D

So here, Amélia & Paul, thank you for choosing me to capture this incredible wedding, it truly was one for the books. I wish you all you could possibly want and more.

Pfeiffer beach Big Sur Engagement Photos

I met Alisa and Chris for the first time in San Francisco. I was excited to work with them since I loved their taste and the locations their picked : they wanted Pfeiffer beach Big Sur Engagement Photos and their wedding was going to take place in Sequoia Retreat Center, which is one of my favorite venues in California.

Not only was I moved by their relationship, how sweet they were with one another, but I also loved their connection and the fact that they laughed so much together.

After meeting them and the engagement session in Big Sur, I couldn’t wait for their wedding!

Mystical Wedding at Holly’s Ocean MeadowSara & Ryan

Mystical Wedding at Holly’s Ocean Meadow

This Mystical Wedding at Holly’s Ocean Meadow was my favorite wedding of the year. In addition to the beautiful bride, the positive energy and the strong spirituality of the day, I felt extra inspired. I loved shooting that wedding.

Everything, from the dancing bridesmaids, the crystal crown of the bride, the fog near the beach and the dreamcatchers everywhere was inviting you to another world. Furthermore, the ceremony site was the cliff overlooking the Pacific and all the guests were gathered into a circle, in the center of which stood Sara and Ryan. I watched Sara’s tears as their hands were being united in the handfasting ritual. I laughed when they ran from the waves, threatening to soak them. Without a doubt, this wedding was a wonderfully mystical.

Thank you so much for choosing me to be your photographer <3
