A little preview of Julie+Romain’s beautiful destination wedding in magical Santorini… I can’t wait to share more photos from this wonderful celebration in Greece. Τα λέμε σύντομα!
Last winter, I had the chance to escape freezing New York and join Susanna+Chris for their wedding in Phuket, Thailand. Their celebration took place at the gorgeous Andara Resort, in a private villa overlooking the Andaman Sea. Most of their guests flew in from Hong Kong and Australia to celebrate this special day in an intimate manner.
I have some catching up to do on the blogging side and will try to share more from this trip to Thailand soon. In the meantime, here’s just one frame.
A big thanks to Susanna & Chris for being so kind-hearted and gracious. Merci!
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.
I’m based in Brooklyn/NYC but always have my passports ready for new adventures around the US and worldwide. Below are some of the destinations I will be traveling to in the next few months.
If you would like to talk about a wedding, portrait session or simply grab coffee in one of these locations, feel free to contact me.

when i first got in touch aude+gilles, a french couple living in los angeles, i knew we were going to hit it off and was really excited about joining them on their big day. they had a wonderful wedding in a beautiful chateau near lyon. they mixed french and american traditions and added personal touches that made it all feel so lovely and unique.
thank you leila for helping me on this wedding, you rock! i included a couple of her dreamy tilt shift images in this post. merci leila!
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!
I love small, intimate weddings. There’s something so simple and touching about them that I love to capture. And if you add two laid-back fun-loving Aussies + Paris as a backdrop + a beautiful sunny day… it’s a real treat to photograph.
Robyn & Hugh had been planning a big wedding in Australia for months, only to realize it wasn’t them. Being the spontaneous couple that they are, they thought “Why not have an intimate ceremony in Paris?” Within a few weeks, they made it happen. Just them, their cute baby boy and a few loved ones, all gathered in Paris for a simple, moving wedding celebration.
Thank you Robyn & Hugh for being so fun, joyful and easy-going. And thank you Paris for giving us a beautiful sunset.
Ceremony Location: Hotel d’Aubusson
Wedding Planning: Alliance Par Fête

a wedding in a french chateau doesn’t usually call for flip flops – unless you’re a guest at lily+james’ wedding. this french bride and australian groom met in sydney a few years ago and now live in new york. their beautiful, fun and emotional celebration gathered friends and family from around the world. they added small touches that reflected their international backgrounds and made their wedding so special.
félicitations aurèlie et james!
the azores archipelago is a little paradise tucked away in the middle of the atlantic ocean, far off the west coast of portugal. it was lots of fun shooting the wedding of carolina+jeremy, an american-portuguese couple from london. they got married on the island of sao miguel, which boasts amazing unspoiled nature and historic towns full of character. these beautiful surroundings and carolina’s cultural heritage which made this wedding so unique and personal. she was such an outgoing, fun, carefree bride, it made my job easy.
