M+L Photographe de mariage à Noumea

Love story Wedding

2 Aout 2018, nous voici de nouveau dans l’avion. Cette fois-ci direction Nouméa, en Nouvelle Calédonie. Maxime et Lucille préparent leur mariage depuis des mois, ils me contactent en début d’année pour participer à cette belle aventure et en capturer l’essence. Dès ce premier contact, je le sais, ce sera un mariage parfait. Et aujourd’hui, deux semaines plus tard, je peux enfin vous le dire, c’était effectivement une journée inoubliable et un mariage parfait. Parce que Max et Lucille forment un couple magnifique. Parce que tout, dans cette journée, a été fait avec le cœur et respirait la joie et le bonheur. Parce que si c’est leur histoire d’amour qu’ils ont célébré ce 4 aout 2018 à la mairie de Nouméa, puis au cours d’une cérémonie laïque très personnelle au Vallon Dore, c’est aussi la famille, et l’amitié, légère, drôle, un brin dégantée, et surtout solide, sincère, émouvante et touchante qu’ils ont mit à l’honneur. Parce que tout aux long de la journée, les rires déchainés ont fait échos aux larmes de pure émotion. Parce que chacun avait sa place dans le cœur des mariés et que tout ceux présent partageait pleinement leur bonheur. Parce que, parce que, parce que… il y aurait tant à dire, mais parfois la magie d’une histoire se situe au-delà des mots, parfois elle se niche dans un simple sourire, un regard échangé, entre deux millièmes de secondes, et alors, alors les photos parlent mieux que les mots. Je vous laisse voir…

 

Here we go again. Different wedding, different plane. This time we are off to Noumea, New Caledonia. Maxime and Lucille had been planning their special day for months when they contacted me and invited me to join them and capture their story. From that first chat we had over Messenger, I simply knew this was a wedding I absolutely wanted to photograph. I knew it would be perfect. Today, some two weeks later, I can actually say that it truly was, indeed, perfect. And unforgettable. It was perfect because Maxime and Lucille are incredibly beautiful people, inside and out. It was perfect because everything, from the planning to the setting, from the ceremony to the festivities was about love, family, and friendship. All their friends and family  participated in decorating the venue, their ceremony was lead by Maxime’s brother and Lucille’s best friend. Their mums both spoke. Lucille’s dad spoke. Their were tears, there was true emotion, and their was love, so, so much love! It was perfect because… because… because. It was perfect in so many ways. And I could describe them all. Sometimes though, the beauty of a story lies beyond words. Sometimes it nestles quietly in the intensity of a look, the warmth of a smile. Sometimes the magic happens in the split between seconds. Then, as they say, images become worth a thousand words. See for yourself…

H + L Love off the coast of Africa
Fire. This is the word that comes to my mind first when I go back to this afternoon walk on a little island off the African coast with Hector and Laura. The wind that day was unforgiving, the sand whipping, the ocean angry. Yet, these two had not a care in the world for mother nature's moodiness. Quite the opposite, in fact. Their passion and free spirits actually matched the wildness of this awe inspiring landscape perfectly. They raced with the wind, hand in hand, laughing like children. They kissed the taste of salt carried by the sea on each other's lips and it made them thirsty for more. They played and fooled around like mad people i ...

M+E: Boho Romance in the Canary Island
Some might call it remote. Some might call it hostile. Most will call it mesmerizing. La Graciosa. The name itself feels like a tale of wind and sand, of men and sea, of sun and dunes. To get there you will have to fly to the Canary island of Lanzarote, drive up north, take a ferry and leave it all behind for days, for weeks, for months, for years. You decide. When you reach, the little harbour village is all white and blue against the vast landscape and sleeping volcano. The moment you set foot on the wharf, it is like the island casts a spell on you and you are under its charm. This is where Oli and I met Eduardo and Miriam. And they, to ...

B+S: Beach babes in the golden Vanuatu sunset
Ben surfs barrels like he was born from the ocean. Sandrine dances on the enchanting rhythms of Tahiti with the grace of the sun. They have known each other since they were 16. That was 25 years ago. Hard to believe! They just look so young at heart and smitten, it seems like they have just met and swept each other off their feet. Honestly, if I have ever seen a man look at a woman like she is his everything, it's Ben looking at Sandrine. And if I have ever seen a woman smile at her man like he is the only star in her entire sky, it's how Sandrine looks at Ben. And call me corny, call me hopeless, but boy, that kind of love... sigh. I want to ...
