Harriet and James, mountains, family, married! St Pierre, France, August, 2015.

Have you ever seen such a beautiful spot!  Harriet and James were married at her families home in the Haute Provence region of France.  Looking back on these pictures has made me ever so nostalgic for this dreamy day.  A delightful family, rambunctious friends and a wedding feast home prepared over the preceding weeks marked this happy day.  I am very thankful to Harriet and James for introducing me to St Pierre and allowing me a glimpse of the gorgeous love they share.

To you two, the very best and much love, JJ.

Lily and Rob {married}{paris}

Lily and Rob had their wedding in Paris.  They said I do in a belle-epoque era bar that hadn’t closed it doors for a private event not even once in it’s 114 year history.  Paris had her winter face on but that afternoon glowed with the warmth and happiness that their families felt for this couple.  It was a masterclass in handsome and an honour to preserve.  Thank you to Lily and Rob and their families… J

Jimmy and Sookie get hitched, Marseille August 2014

Jimmy and Sookie’s meeting was a fluke on an international scale.  More than one chance encounter in Korea was involved and then a move to the other side of the world with everything crossed.  It’s one killer story and the best request to shoot a wedding I have ever received.  Jimmy and Sookie invited me to come to sun drenched Marseille to photograph their wedding.  Now I knew that the sun of southern France was something special but what I didn’t know was just how amazing its’ people are.  Warm, friendly and charming from when they picked us up at the station till when they dropped us back again 5 days later, getting to know these two and covering their family focused wedding day was a pleasure and an honour.

L’union entre Jimmy et Sookie a été un coup de chance à l’échelle internationale ! En plus d’une belle rencontre fortuite en Corée du Sud, cela a impliqué aussi un voyage de Sookie à l’autre bout du monde… Quelle histoire irrésistible à entendre ! Ce fut aussi pour moi, la plus belle demande pour photographier un mariage que je n’ai jamais reçue.  Jimmy et Sookie m’ont invité à venir à Marseille complètement baigné par le soleil. Maintenant, je savais que le soleil du sud de la France était quelque chose de spécial, mais ce que je ne savais pas comment ses gens étaient tout aussi incroyables : chaleureux, amicales et charmants à partir du moment où ils sont venus nous chercher à la gare jusqu’à ce qu’ils nous y déposent à nouveau 5 jours plus tard… Apprendre à connaître Jimmy et Sookie et couvrir leur jour de mariage avec leur famille a été un plaisir et un honneur.

Merci beaucoup xo
