Jade & David were none the less absolutely not overshadowed by a red headed Prince and his American girlfriend because they married at the very special Chateau de la Motte Husson aka home of Escape to the Chateau. Tried as I […]

A few weeks ago I spent a dreamy afternoon and the pink palace of the Riviera, other wise known as, Villa Rothschild. I’ve almost had the chance on several occasions to visit, but never quite managed to get there and it was worth the wait. Even though the weather let me down a little. Villa […]

The Best Wedding Venues in Provence

  As a photographer in the South of France I am blessed with a plethora of colours, sunshine and of course the famous light that attracted masters of the arts such as Picasso, Matisse and Cezanne to this magical part of the world.  And while I shoot 80% in colour I also have more than […]

The power of black & white photography

2017 | THE REVIEW

  “Pinch me, I’m dreaming…” That’s what I kept saying to myself the entire day that I spent shooting S & T’s French Riviera wedding in Grasse and then onto Cannes.
