Today is Fran and Oana’s one year wedding anniversary and I’m so excited to share their wedding in Paris with you!
They are my friends and they are both wonderful people. Fran is the most appreciated Paris elopement photographer. He is really talented and the fact that he asked me to take his wedding pictures was a huge honor. He is kind and ambitious and he treats everyone with so much respect and love. Oana is one of the nicest people I know and I love to take photos of her. She pays a lot of attention to details which made my job so easy and fun at their wedding. Every single decor element was stunning. I couldn’t have asked for more, ha ha 🙂
I have photographed so many weddings over the course of ten years. But every now and then I photograph one that takes the world ‘beautiful’ to a new level. This amazing wedding in Paris was one of them and I was so grateful to be part of.
There were many happy and emotional moments throughout the wedding, and you’ll see this in the photos. If there is one thing that I remember vividly from that day, it was their first look. For those few minutes, everything was just about the two of them.
Fran and Oana, thank you for the gift of your friendship and for giving me the opportunity to capture your wedding memories in pictures. Thank you so much for trusting me and for giving me such a big role on your wedding day.
I love you both from the bottom of my heart. Happy one year anniversary. I wish you many more years in love, honesty and companionship.
And the last one’s with me, just to show you that I wasn’t that tired at the end, and I could relive this day over and over again, that’s how wonderful it was 🙂
You know that most of the time I am humble, but I am sure proud of these photos. It’s not all my merit, the bride and the groom were extremely gorgeous, and the backdrop was great! All that combined makes me keep looking at the blog post (as I’ve said, I rarely do that :)) ) and say: I want pictures like that too! (I actually tried with the tripod…but it’s not the same ). 😀
What amazing people are Theo and Sebi! They are so cute together! If the sun hadn’t set I don’t know when I would have stopped taking pictures of them
With Theodora I think we remained friends ever since.
I am tempted to say you will see more pictures of them on my blog. 😀
I hope you’ll enjoy the photos, they are the most colorful I’ve ever taken 🙂
The wedding of these two cheerful and friendly kids will remain in my heart for a long time. Most of the time I come home from weddings so happy, not because it was a perfect wedding, but because I had a great time. But their wedding was both perfect and with an amazing ambient. It was filled with youth, laughter and cheer, with many surprises from friends but also from the bride and the groom. There was always something beautiful and touching happening.
I’ve fallen in love with the reception venue, Abbaye de Royaumont looks great! It was a chocolate wedding 🙂 this was the theme of it, both Sonya and Cyril being big chocolate lovers. 😀 Even the menus were made out of chocolate! I never though something like that even existed, but now I got to taste it :))
I wish for Sonya and Cyril that the years to come will be just as happy and worry-free as their wedding day. While some couples are looking forward to that day to pass these two were soaking in every minute of it 🙂 They truly made their wedding day the most beautiful and their joy spread to everybody else. I think that was the reason why we all came home so happy 🙂

Two months ago I had this beautiful and totally different photo shoot. It was a challenge for me and I really had a great time with these wonderful people. I asked Tabita to tell you more about the session 🙂
“I am sure you are wondering if this is a wedding. Well, it is not! It is our passion though to create vintage photographs with ourselves as the actors of “La Belle Époque”. For about 3 years now, at least once a month, we dream, imagine, photograph and enjoy getting away from our modern world. It is something that I haven’t seen any other couple do, except rarely or on special occasions. We do this for ourselves, and, when we have the opportunity, we request the services of a good photographer – like JolieDee – so we can be more free by not having to bother with our own cameras. 😀 I am excited and honored by the photos Odrida took and that she lives in Paris, a city full of beauty and history. 🙂 We will surely rely on her photographic gift again for a future awesome session of vintage photography. Every session is planned with love, passion down to the very details of the era, like the objects, places, hair styles and editing. We like to bring to life all eras, but, for now, our definite favorites are the 1900s. Is the best inspiration for a romantic wedding where white, lace, pure elegance and respect are intertwined with beauty and love…”
A few days ago I met this cute, friendly and smiling Indian couple. They came to this wonderful city for their honeymoon, dreaming about a photo session in Paris bringing along their wedding clothes, and I was the luckiest for having the opportunity to take their photos.
After we spent together a few beautiful hours, filled with laughter and stories, I received an invitation to visit them in India. And, luckily, India is on my “places I must see” list. 😀
Divy and Krish, I am very glad to have met you and I wish you many beautiful days together. 🙂
