    A few words from April & Paolo:

    "We eloped in Paris earlier this month and choosing Olivier as our photographer was the best decision we made. Our photos and video were absolutely amazing! We are both camera shy, but thankfully he guided us through the day and somehow made the end product look so natural and effortless. He also had the photos & video back to us within the same week! Is that even possible? Needless to say, our expectations were met a million times over. Thank you!!!"

    A few words from Dina & James:

    "Olivier photographed our wedding on September 5, 2016. It was the most magical experience of our lives. He knew exactly where to take us and avoided many of the "typical paris" sites which was great because our photos will truly capture what Paris is all about. He was very accommodating and generous with his time. We even had a little rain at the end of our time with him, but it turned into so much fun. I am so grateful to him for capturing such beautiful photos because it is a day that will live on forever through these pictures. The photos are simply gorgeous! One day when we return to Paris with our family I hope to take more photos with him!
    Thank you for everything. You exceeded my expectations! "

Elopement at the Shangri-La in Paris.

Jamie and Scott eloped to Paris. They decided to spend the week-end at the hotel Shangri-La with its beautiful view of the tour Eiffel. They thought of celebrating their union in intimacy with their very good friends before the big bash in the Hamptons!paris elopement in the rain photographerPINTHIS

The “getting ready” took place at the hotel. Estelle Preston created all of the floral arrangements and the bridal bouquet, while my “All Star” hair and make up artists pampered the bride and everyone else! It started raining while i arrived at the Shangri-La. It actually went from a gentle drizzle to pouring rain. We waited and waited for the rain to stop and it never did. With the help of the staff from the Shangri-La, we organized umbrellas and as planned our chauffeurs took us to the Louvres for their elopement ceremony.

Jamie was wearing a beautiful dress from Oscar de la Renta and the girls; couture NYC designers. Scott looked smashing in a classic tuxedo. Regardless of the constant rain fall, their wedding ceremony at the Louvres, under the arcades, was all romantic. I am so glad i was able to assist them with the photography of their parisian elopement. Paris certainly is not Miami, it does rain in the city of light but it doesn’t stop the love of a couple for each other and the desire to seal one’s union in Paris! On our way to the Maison Blanche restaurant (one of the finest dining adventure in Paris, modern yet quite classy), we zoomed past the place de la Concorde. Paris actually is so beautiful at night when it rains. The square was all glittery with the reflection of the city lights on the wet pavement. I couldn’t help begging my clients for a last photo on the square, regardless of the rain! Oh Yes, those photographs did come up very nicely!

I would like to thank again the staff of the Shangri-La who were all caring and attentive through out the day. It is always a real pleasure to photograph a wedding in this luxurious Parisian hotel. They have just received their 2 star michelin and very well deserve it. Our chauffeurs took every steps possible to make sure that no one was getting wet with very good humor.

I love their wedding photographs. I have to say it wasn’t a bit easy playing outside with the rain! I did get wet, my cameras survived it all. A great wedding photographer should quickly adapt to any kind of situation, making the most of the surrounding. Looking back i am glad of the way the photographs came out. They are quite lively and show the loving atmosphere of the day.Paris-wedding-photographer-214PINTHIS

Parisian wedding celebration photographerPINTHISIt is always exiting to see our style shoot published in French wedding style. It was a lot of fun producing this series of photographs with amazing vendors who all provide quite exclusive professional services to brides getting married in Paris. Edith from “une fleur en liberte” created a lovely pink rose bouquet for our princess. The bride was wearing a Catherine Herrara wedding gown that “Ma Bonne Amie” kindly selected  while “Faubourg Saint Sulpice” dressed up our groom from head to toe!
After a very romantic getting ready photo shoot at the newly open hotel Providence, we cruised the streets of Paris in an old classic DS cabriolet with our driver Romain from “Anciennes de Prestige“. Paris is the most charming background for a wedding celebration as well as a more intimate elopement. There are so many stunning architectural backgrounds to choose from! I hope that those photographs will bring ideas to many brides planning their upcoming wedding in the city of light this summer. Paris rocks and we are so glad to assist our clients in making their wedding dream come true with stylish and romantic photography.

Special thank you to Paris wedding planner “WeddingLight Events” who orchestrated the whole day! Faubourg Saint Sulpice have just launched their new website actually. I love their men’s summer collection and the photos; shot in Brittany last fall, the series make me, as well as any distinguished gentleman want to wear a suit  every day of the week.

An afternoon elopement at the Versailles castle.

Paris has become the ultimate city for an intimate wedding or an elopement with just the two of you. It is quite true! YES … we are getting more and more clients contacting us to assist them with the photography of their most wonderful day. From time to time, we do get a query from brides about Versailles! It is the most charming location on earth regardless of the season. An elopement in versailles in the fall season is quite unique actually. Here above a few photographs from a couple elopement in Versailles.We had the most beautiful afternoon stralling the garden of Marie Antoinette. I do love the photos of Kate and Jay, full of loving moments and so precious.

Enjoy the photos and video of this very special couple! We had a lot of pleasure being part of their wedding day.

A wedding is more than two people getting married. A wedding is the celebration of the life long commitment two people make when they are madly in love. It is a day that most brides have been fantasizing about since they were five years old and watched the movie Cinderella for the first time. When this fantasy becomes reality—one thing is for certain— the day must be everything the couple wants and more. A couples wedding is a day they will remember for the rest of their lives, so every detail and vision must be carried out with great success. While our sister company at WeddingLight Events can make sure your Paris based fairy tale is planned to perfection, the bride still has to make sure she has a wedding dress that will make her look and feel like a princess.Paris rent a couture wedding gownPINTHIS

Lanvin dress in pleated ivory silk with pretty V neckline front and back decorated with a jewel belt.

We think every bride to be could agree,when eloping in Paris, wedding photographs are everything. Photographs serve as one of the best memories. They are what you get to show off to all of your friends and family when you return back home, and most likely what you will enlarge, frame, and hang all over your house. So when you and your other half visit Paris—one of the most romantic cities in the world—photographs are a must. Lets face it, every woman dreamed about getting kissed under the eiffel tower, so why not capture the moment. Honeymoon photography is also so popular right now, since it is a time where the newly weds can get both fun and beautiful photos taken privately together. Most couples would even agree that the memory itself of just taking the photos really adds to the adventure of their honeymoon. Plus, with a background like Paris, it would almost be wrong not to take advantage.Paris rent a couture wedding gownPINTHIS

John Galliano dress in ecru tulle embroidered fluid very small gold sequins, with a sail effect on the arms and skirt of lightness and transparency.

When “Happily Ever After” begins in Paris, the bride will look best spent in a couture gown as beautiful as she is. If you think a couture wedding dress is an untouchable option for you because of price and distance, think again.“Ma Bonne Amie” is a Paris based company who specializes in renting couture and wedding gowns. The collection includes designers such as YSL, Dior, Chanel, and even wedding gowns from Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang. Ma Bonne Amie was established in 2009 specifically for special event gowns, and within the past two years expanded further to wedding dresses after many requests. The idea was started after realizing how many women buy beautiful dresses for events that they will only wear one time. They have been recognized for such a brilliant idea by numerous different well known magazines such as Elle Magazine, and Marie Claire. Most brides only wear their wedding dress for one day, and then it is put into a closet to never be touched again.

So if you are looking for the dream wedding dress for your forthcoming wedding, a Paris photo session, engagement photo shoot or some honeymoon portraits with your love one in Paris & the eiffel tower in the background, I would suggest you simply contact them directly for further information over the phone.
