When I first met Tomoko+Romain, a French-American couple from New York, they struck me as such elegant people. After getting to know them and shooting their engagement session in Central Park, I realized they were also incredibly sensitive and romantic souls. They got married at Chateau de Dangu, a beautiful estate in the countryside between Paris and Normandy. Knowing Tomoko, who is a beauty editor for a fashion magazine, and chatting about their wedding plans, I imagined their big day was going to look as lovely and stylish as she is. And it was! But what really touched me was how friendly and sensitive they both are, and how much they trusted me to capture their big day. All their international friends and families came together to celebrate, and as a French-American myself, it was fun and moving to capture this mix of cultures and traditions. During the cocktail hour, the entire wedding party – led by the French family – broke into a surprise choreographed dance… and the fun continued throughout the night!

Julie+Alvaro are a French-Spanish couple from Barcelona. After hearing about their story, I understood that Formentera was not a random wedding destination for them. This island is part of their history and their heart. They met and spent summers together as kids/teenagers, and several years later, they reconnected in Barcelona. They keep returning to Formentera regularly, so that’s where they decided to have get married in an intimate, simple, meaningful celebration.

Now, let me tell you a little bit more about their special place… Formentera is Ibiza’s little sister, without the touristy resorts and giant parties. The tiny, quiet island started attracting artists and hippies in the 60′s and 70′s. Amazingly, it has kept a bohemian vibe and remains unspoiled, secluded and strictly environment-friendly. Only 3 villages over 12 miles, very few paved roads, no airport. I stayed in a house lost in the middle of pine trees and cactuses, with no internet connection, no cell phone reception and limited water supply… No better way to get immersed in nature and feel inspired by the island’s myriad of colors, textures and scents.

Julie & Alvaro wanted photographs that captured not just their wedding, but also the essence of Formentera – so it was an honor that they welcomed me onto their island to be a part of their special day.

 

 

 

 

 

Some portraits we shot in various locations around the island. Hopefully these give you a feel of Formentera.

If you follow me on instagram or Facebook, you perhaps saw that I was in Greece a few weeks go. Santorini is one of the most stunning location I’ve ever seen, and Julie + Romain could’ve not picked a better destination for their wedding. They gathered their closest family and friends for a beautiful celebration that felt emotional, elegant yet relaxed and fun. Felicitations Julie+Romain!

I love these two… such fun, sweet, genuine people. I first got to photograph Shiva+Brian’s small wedding ceremony in California, at the beautiful City Hall of San Francisco. We met again in Paris, with their closest friends and family members. It was a gorgeous summer day to have an outdoor wedding by the Seine River. After getting ready in a beautiful apartment in Le Marais, they held a  ceremony along the river banks, followed by a reception on a boat with beautiful views of the city. Marie-Emilie from Mon Plus Beau Jour helped them plan and design their Parisian celebration. Carrie of Pink Toast Ink created their lovely stationery and details. Duncan Wolfe worked his magic to create this amazing film. I love what happens when you put together a fun couple, a beautiful destination and a rad team of vendors. Enjoy!

It’s a lovely midsummer evening in Paris and I feel like sharing a few words…

So far it’s been a busy wedding season and I’ve had a hard time keeping up with everything, so first I want to say sorry for the lack of regular blog updates. I feel incredibly blessed and grateful to be able to do this awesome job and work with such wonderful couples all over. Thank you for your kindness, trust and patience!

I still call Brooklyn home and I’m still a “New York wedding photographer”, but I’ve actually been away from home a lot lately and haven’t shot in NYC very much. If you want to follow my wanderings, here are my updated travel dates.

This season has been fun, beautiful, exciting and a bit tiring (hello, jetlag!). I had an amazing time photographing this lovely wedding in Greece. Over the past few months, I also had the chance to explore and shoot in Italy, France, Switzerland, Thailand, Mexico, Virgin Islands, Dubai, Hawaii, California… and I’m excited for all the beautiful weddings and destinations ahead.

My iPhone has been following me everywhere and I love sharing snapshots. Until I get to blogging all these weddings and travels, you can get a glimpse of my little adventures and daily inspirations on instagram (follow @fionaconrad). I also try to update my other photography blog.

I love meeting up new people and old friends along the way, so if you would like to talk about a wedding, portrait session or just grab coffee in one of the locations, feel free to say hi.

Happy Summer to all of you!
