Alexandra & Ben | Paris Wedding | Chateau de Santeny

Thank you Alex & Ben for having me tell your beautiful wedding story. Life is amazing, when you think about the “coincidences” that have to happen for further events to follow. So this is the story. Ben and Alex met in Taipeh, Taiwan. Alex is french and Ben is american. Magic happens and they fall in love. So here i am driving over to Paris to photograph their wedding, also because i sat in a cafe in Shanghai 2 years earlier. Talking about the usual things with some friends (probably photography in the city) when i  got introduced to Ben. Ben is quite a passionate photographer himself and we kept following each others work. So some years forward i am photographing his wedding in Chateau de Santeny, Paris. On a side note, if i wouldn’t have been travelling to Cuba with Chris (who was shooting as second) 6 years ago, i probably wouldn’t have started with photography – but this is a long story.

Diana & Nathanael | Château Barthélemy wedding in Paris

I loved photographing Diana & Nathanael’s wedding. It was a pure delight. A wedding day packed with beautiful people, emotional moments all happening in a charming chateau. Forever grateful to have captured these frames.

 

 

KIND WORDS

 

‘Finding a photographer for our wedding was a daunting task for me. My now-husband hates being photographed, my mother-in-law never smiles on photos, and I get pretty uncomfortable being the center of attention. I needed someone who would be able to capture the moments without making us pose too much and whose style I would be happy to look at for the rest of my life (because that’s what you do with wedding photos!). 

 

Chris was the one. She came highly recommended from a friend, so that immediately instilled confidence. Beyond that, her unique style is classic and addicting — she is an artist as well as a storyteller, and I cannot stop looking at our photos. At our wedding, she blended in with the guests and wedding party, and captured all the important moments we definitely wanted (ceremony, first dance, speeches) and then all the magical moments we will treasure for years to come (loving gazes, playful whispers, dances between divorced parents, stolen kisses…). 

 

I am so thankful to have had Chris as our wedding photographer. She was a joy and a gift to work with from the planning stages to the wedding itself and the delivery of the photos. If she’s available on your chosen date and you’re even questioning it, stop! Hire her; you won’t regret it!’
