A red and white wedding in Champagne area (France)

This post is also available in : French

Laura wasn’t even fiancée that she already mentionned me she wanted me as a photographer for her wedding !

Laura + Denis

I know Laura for several years now, from the time she wanted to be an au pair in USA, and me, already been a nanny, I was interviewing and selecting applicants au pair for a cultural exchange agency.

After meeting Laura we kept in touch (because YES, she was so impressively mature, cheerful, and an experienced nanny that I HAD to accept her to the aupair programm !) 🙂

Years went by, Laura and Denis became a couple, and me a wedding photographer…

And then Laura get engaged, and once the date was set, my agenda had an extra special event to look forward to : I had to take photos of the wedding of someone I know, someone I really appreciate, and then, to get to meet her friends, family and future husband. What a treat ! 🙂

So here is what I will remember of this day : a red and white wedding in Champagne area (eastern part of France)

Tears tickling my eyes for the groom and bride first look 🙂

and then, exploring the area for a couple photo session 🙂

Celebrating, and laughing really hard, in a little city hall of a small village in Champagne

They used an helicopter to bring the rings !


Finally being married, and as the tradition allows it : confettis !

(I found some left in my jacket’s pocket several weeks later !)  🙂

followed by a lovely cocktail / garden party at the bride’s parent mansion

The evening went wearing masks and having fun

(for almost everybody !) 🙂

and a dreamy first dance, because these 2, no doubt about it, love each other very much !


Mariage en Champagne

Today, Laura and Denis are celebrating their first wedding anniversary, so I want to wish them the best and most of all : a long life filled with love.

May they love each other as much as what I’ve witnessed on that beautiful wedding day in Champagne.

Hi there


Photographer, traveler, and silly knitter

Alone, driving a car for miles and miles, with a good music playlist, my cameras on the passenger seat.

Witnessing the beauty of a landscape, or the raw feeling of real love, emotions and bonds people may have with each other and sometimes crying just because this is just so beautiful...

That's where my best memories come from... and photos too :)

Andalusian in my heart, I've been dancing sevillanas (flamenco) for more than 12 years, I also spent 2 years living in USA. (I'm deeply in love with Oregon and the Pacific Northwest area)

Native French, I do speak English, and Spanish and love learning about cultural differences

Feel free to contact me  for further informations :)
