How it works


Capturing your story

The magic begins!

Helpful information



Once your date is reserved, I'll send you helpful information to plan your session, plus directions to our meeting spot.

During our time together, you won't believe how fast the time goes. It won't be a boring, stagnant experience. Instead, we'll walk around together, I'll share my love of France with you, and my world famous American friendliness.

I'll gently guide you with natural, romantic poses that feel carefree and candid. Even if you're not a fan of photos!

My approach for romantic couples photographs in Provence is to capture your love story with natural, elegant images filled with emotion-- images that will give you joy and happiness every time you look at them.

To get started, select your favorite collection listed above, then contact me to reserve your date. I'll send you a booking link, and you may pay online, it's super simple.

After our time together, the magic begins, as I masterfully edit your beautiful images in my signature colorful and bright style. You'll receive your images in just one week, via an online gallery, where you may download your very favorites.

Don't forget to print some and frame them! The option to print your images is one of the options in your gallery, images are printed at my professional photo lab in the USA.

Preserve Your Precious Memories!

We all love digital files, I do too, and each collection includes digital files. But you can't curl up with a digital file, grab a cup of coffee, and re-live your beautiful memories. That's why you also have the option to create gorgeous print products, and other wonderful keepsakes. You can design these yourself, and order directly from your online gallery, to enjoy forever!

Which cities in Provence do you serve?


Provence is a huge region in the south of France, and I love it all! I'm based in Arles, and serve Arles, Avignon, Nîmes, Les Baux de Provence, villages of the Alpilles, Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, Gordes and more. Feel free to enquire if you have a specific location in mind.

Do you photograph families or individuals?


I love photographing families and individuals, but my strengths are with photographing romantic couples sessions, so at this time I do not photograph families or individuals.

Do you photograph surprise proposals in Provence?


Yes, depending on the location, I do photograph surprise proposals/engagements in Provence. Popular spots are the olive groves near Les Baux de Provence, the bridge of Avignon, and of course, the lavender fields in June and July. Feel free to contact me with your ideas!

We're uncomfortable in front of the camera, will you guide us?


Absolutely! While the point is to create amazing images you'll treasure forever, I also aim to make you feel super comfortable, relaxed and create a fun atmosphere! We'll be walking around, chatting and I'll be pointing out things along the route, it's a very relaxed experience and one I hope you'll find enjoyable!

Old world charm

Intoxicating beauty

Most couples drawn to Provence love good wine, good food, and beautiful landscapes and the outdoors. There are so many options for landscapes, whether that's from a mountain, in an olive grove, or even, a sunflower field! Les Baux de Provence and Saint Remy de Provence are popular places to stay.

Provence is dotted with spectacular villages on hillsides. They are authentic and incredibly charming. You'll find old stone walls, flowers, and incredible views. Some popular villages are Gordes, Les Baux de Provence and Bonnieux, but there are many!

Many couples dream of an elopement in a pretty lavender field. Lavender blooms in Provence from the end of June to mid-July. The most stunning lavender fields are near the small town of Valensole, in the Luberon National Regional Park, or in the village of Sault. It takes up to an hour and a half to reach some of the lavender fields, therefore, you should prepare for that. Great places to stay include Avignon, Arles, Gordes, Marseille or Aix-en-Provence.

How do elopements work?




After you reserve with me, I'll help you plan your location, help with vendors (such as makeup or officiant) and create the timeline for this incredible day.

Then, the magical day arrives, and I create gorgeous images for you to treasure forever of your special day in Provence!

After you've reviewed the Planner, and completed the questionnaire, let's meet online!

We'll schedule a complimentary 20-minute Zoom or Whatsapp call to discuss your elopement.

If you need more advice after our call, we can schedule you for a more in-depth paid discovery call, or you can go ahead and pay the retainer and book me for your special day.

Contact me to receive the free Provence Elopement Planner. It will give you a lot of great ideas on where to elope, where to stay, and more.

I'll also send you a questionnaire, so I can learn more about you and your dreams for your big day!

We want to elope in Provence, but we're not sure where, can you help us plan?


With so many options, it can be confusing to decide on where to elope, especially if you've never been to the south of France before. In addition to my free Provence Elopement Planner, I offer a complimentary 20-minute Zoom or Whatsapp call to learn more about you. From there, you can either schedule a more in-depth paid discovery call, or you can reserve my services with a retainer, and I'll continue to help you plan your magical day!

What type of elopement is possible?


While you can certainly privatize a location for your elopement, such as a hotel or resort, most couples love an outdoor, nature-inspired elopement. These all take place in public places, usually with views of the mountains, in a lavender or olive grove, or from a beautiful hilltop village. Normally in the morning, before too many people wake up, sunset elopements are also possible.

Can you help us arrange other vendors, such as flowers, makeup & hair, officiant?


Yes! All clients who have reserved me for their elopement will receive guidance on vendors who will make your day so special. This could include a makeup & hair artist, flowers, officiant/celebrant and more.

Can elopements be put together last minute?


Unlike traditional weddings, which take a long time to plan, elopements can be planned a bit more quickly. That said, in the busy summer months of June to August (particularly August), its best to plan ahead if you can, as hotels fill very quickly.

The stuff fairy tales are made of! An elopement in a hilltop village, loaded with charm.
