First step of their adventure, the engagement session of Claudia and Sebastian was done naturally in Paris, place of their first look. After a break to the luxurious Place Vendôme and the Ritz Palace, we resisted the cold in this winter for some pictures around the Louvre, before a hot chocolate! In April, they are going to say YES to each other, and for sure, the photos will be on the blog too!
Our vision was born as a result of creatives from different regions who met in Dubai to create a location-inspired story. When Maddy Christina and The Purple Chair discussed ideas for collaborating, we were delighted to come together to incorporate her western film photography with Eastern beauty and culture.
The venue was the perfect backdrop for this shoot as it highlights the unique heritage of the city. Beautiful coral architecture and brass elements were abundant in the venue. Pampass, mustard roses, buds, berries and a combination of garden roses were perfectly married in clay vases by Le Marche de Fleur. Muted tones were selected to compliment the mustard and beige accents of the venue. Robin from Feather Paper created a delicate hand crafted invitation suite incorporating the distinctive Arabian bee and Ghaff leaves to tie the suite with the shoot. The special accent in the menu shots were the spices which are a vital part of the day to day culture in the region.
The Purple Chair worked closely with Sara from 800 tailor to create a modest jumpsuit paired with a cape and a lace hood highlighting the elegance of the bride and embracing her tradition in a romantic and humble manner. The video captured so immaculately by Morning Jacket Films provides viewers with a better look and feel of the feminine aesthetics, embroidery and detailing of this inspirational shoot. It was a pleasure working with like-minded and talented individuals who all came together to create this Dubai wedding inspiration and provide the industry with a closer look at the details and unique beauty that stems from this region.

I am so happy to have had the pleasure of doing this maternity session on the French Riviera! It has not been long since I settled in Monaco, and I am delighted every day by the beautiful meetings I make, and this one is more than a part! A sublime mother-to-be, ideas, accessories, outfits, only the sun was right of our session that could have lasted a while! A real pleasure! The light is simply magical, and I look forward to discovering new sublime places to immortalize this magical moment of life!
What a pleasure to find my pretty bride, a year after she said YES to her fiancé! After a sublime wedding in Paris, and a session after marriage in Dubai last year, I find her on the beach to immortalize her pregnancy. A nice surprise for her husband, traveling this week, and who will be able to discover beautiful pictures of his wife and their future little princess! It is also this part that I like in my job; keep in touch with the newlyweds, continue to immortalize the highlights of their lives, and see the children grow up!
What an honor to organize this session in one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Monaco! And what a joy and pleasure to find amazing vendors to create these images! Monte Carlo Bay, this wonderful location, has embarked with us in this creation, and today we have the pleasure of being featured in international blogs. I am really pleased to let you discover some excerpts of this session, as well as the sublime video of Stephane-M.

It is a must on Monaco. The Fairmont with its 602 rooms, can accommodate all guests, for sure! But for me, wedding photographer in Monaco, what made me vibrate is this crazy view on the sunrise. As much since the Ayrton Senna suite, as from the roof of the Nikki Beach. With a groom basketball player in the Monegasque team and a bride who is a coach, as well it was pure pleasure!
What an incredible pleasure to organize this weeding styled shooting at the Villa Balbiano with this incredible team! And the cherry on the cake? The models are not models, but real bride and groom I had the chance to immortalize the big day few years ago! Then, we discovered this amazing venue around the Lake Como, and the the team stoped breathing. A gorgeous villa, an incredible view on the lake, and a so adorable team to welcoming us.
We are so proud to be featured on the famous wedding blog STYLE ME PRETTY, and now, we have the pleasure to share our work here! ENJOY!

At the border of Monaco, there is a place, like a paradise in the middle of a big agitated town, when everything stops.Welcome to the MonteCarlo-Bay. Here, while the sun was rising over the sea, I had the pleasure of photographing this wedding session as beautiful and sweet as a dream. Two beautiful models, a beautiful dress by Christophe Alexandre Docquin, and this perfect decor for a dream wedding.
I am therefore very proud to present this first session at Monte Carlo Bay, eager to share others!
