Wedding in Brussels: in the heart of art nouveau


Let’s head to my hometown, beautiful Brussels, for an international wedding through the iconic squares and buildings of its city center. 

Brussels has a rich architectural heritage which makes it an inspiring and grand place. 

Being originally from Brussels, it is a return to my roots and a declaration of love to my city that I was able to achieve through this couple’s photo session. My bride and groom wanted images of the city where they met. 

It was a joy to be part of this wedding in Brussels.

A majestic setting


Delicate, international and sweet are the words I would choose to describe the couple of Katarina and Fabio. 

After a civil ceremony on the Grand Place, the couple headed to the royal palace, jewel of the city.

The royal family does not live inside, but it is the administrative residence and workplace of our king! Together hand in hand, they discover the garden of this splendid place. The atmosphere is magical.

On the royal square, they take a few moments together surrounded by a fantastic architectural environment. The mythical musical instrument museum is visible in the background. 

At the foot of the St. James-on-Coudenberg Cathedral, the two lovers are alone in the world, a scene worthy of a fairy tale. This neoclassical building was built in 1776 and will remain so until 1849. We can only marvel at this building.

The bride and groom’s walk takes them to Leopold Park, a magnificent green space with a medieval tower from the 15th century. 

After this royal stopover, they head to the European Commission, their final destination. This place is essential to their wedding, it is the starting point of their story.

An international couple

Katarina comes from Slovakia and Fabio from Brazil. As distant as these two destinations may be, it is in the heart of Brussels that our two lovers met for the first time during a joint project within the European Commission.  

Getting married in the Belgian capital was therefore an obvious choice!

This international couple testifies to the cosmopolitan dimension of Brussels. As the European capital, it allows people from all over the world to meet. 

This is the end of Katarina and Fabio’s magnificent photo session. 

From their first meeting to their wedding, Brussels is the city of their love, of their heart. 

This getaway  in the streets of the capital was a unique moment for the couple that will remain forever engraved in their memory.

An engagement session? 4 good reasons to realize one


Have you thought about having an engagement session before your wedding? Beyond the beautiful images you will get, this couple photo session has many advantages.

1 - Gain confidence in front of the camera

Have you ever posed in front of a camera? It is not a simple exercise!

An engagement session is the ideal way to gain confidence in front of the lens and different cameras. Your photographer will be able to give you advice and help you pose naturally and with confidence. On your wedding day, you won’t have time to try anything. You will just want to go back to your guests. Depending on the schedule, some will have 15 minutes, while others will have 1 hour.

If you are tense or stressed it will show on the pictures, that is why I highly recommend the engagement session. You will completely forget the cameras and your wedding pictures will be more beautiful 🙂

2 - You get to know your photographer

On the day of your wedding, you need to be serene in front of the camera but also confident with your photographer. By doing an engagement session, you will be able to discover your photographer in action: his working method, his style, his personality etc.

It is always easier to pose with someone you know than with a stranger. Your photographer should be a friend on the day, you should feel at ease in his presence. Moreover, he will be able to discover your couple beforehand which will allow him to transcribe your love in pictures in the most beautiful way. For you, it is also the occasion to verify that the style of the photographer really suits you and corresponds to your expectations for your wedding.

3 - "save the date" pictures for your invitations

Whether in paper or digital format, it is always nice to receive a lovely invitation. With an engagement session, you will get beautiful pictures of your couple that you can share with your guests to announce your wedding.

The stationery has its importance for your wedding photographer, it can allow him to make beautiful pictures of details. A beautiful photo of your couple can make the difference. Beyond the invitations, you can also display these photos in your reception area.

4 - An unforgettable moment with your partner

The goal of an engagement session is to capture your love. This unique day will remain engraved in your memory and prepare you for your big day! It is an opportunity to get together, to take a break for a day and share a moment of complicity together.
I often do the engagement sessions for my future brides and grooms outside, during the golden hour, because I like the softness of the light. See with your photographer the place that suits you best. 

This session is also the way to tell the story of your couple, I advise you to choose an idyllic place that makes you both dream (for example: at the beach, during a city-trip, a botanical garden or a place dear to your eyes) 

                                                                                      I invite you to discover more information on the places of shooting HERE

I hope that these few advantages have made you want to do an engagement session before your wedding. It is a nice moment to spend with your partner that will allow you to create a complicity with your photographer and to gain confidence in front of the camera.

Engagement photo session at the Salagou lake


This engagement session in the middle of nature takes place in a place barely known by the population: the Salagou Lake. 

Hidden jewel of the south of France, this unique and uncommon site is only a few dozen kilometers from Montpellier. 

The Salagou lake is an untamed land, isolated and rich in contrasts: nature has reclaimed its rights and a robust flora and swarms of wild birds have made their home there. 

An ancient volcano towers over it and its red sandstone, so similar to the Australian Outback, has witnessed ancient eras. What could be more inspiring for a wedding photographer than the singularity of this secret territory? I like to make you dive with me in this universe of vertiginous majesty.

A magical photo reportage at the Salagou lake


Immersed in this timeless walk, Marion and Tom entered in harmony with this landscape. The couple rediscovered themselves during a few rhythmic steps. Dazzling, they are the main actors rehearsing their first dance. Witnesses of the scene, the curves of the discreet and wild nature match with the red and sandy earth. A moment of harmony that sends them back to their D-day.

Radiantly moving under my lens, Marion and Tom walk towards the shore.

The sincerity and tenderness of their exchanges are touching. Echoing the purity of their love, the waters of the lake sparkle with the last rays of the sun. Their vows, distilled in their smiles and embraces, reside on the waving reflections. Enveloped in this end-of-the-world setting, the ardor of the place now flows through their veins.

A photo session in the southwest of France

The steps of our couple lead them in the neighboring fields, premises of a famous soil, watered by the Salagou and authentic pictures of the Mediterranean countryside. The picturesque haystacks, these wide-open spaces, evoke the hushed loves narrated by the novels and songs of the last century. 

Marion stands out in her delicate white dress, wearing a lovely straw hat. Tom as well, in his white shirt, seems to have inherited the demeanor of the men of that time. The lovers contemplate each other and continue their stroll. The old ochre stones on this panorama with evanescent luminosity offer a shelter to their kisses and their bursts of laughter. A sublime photo session.

The last minutes of this session...

It is the end of a prelude, of an extraordinary photo session at the edge of the Lake of Salagou. The magic of the lake goes away while the feelings of Marion and Tom continue to bloom.
