Lauren & Dave, Los Angeles wedding photographer

I am lost in my thoughts, and the low, blazing afternoon sun warms my face. Some moments in your life just happen as if they were part of a preordained destiny, as if they just had to be part of your life path; to help you move forward, to grow, to confirm certain life choices and to show you the way you should keep following.

These few letters here in front of me, raised like statues on their pedestals, remind me of my childhood. By constantly believing in them, and by hard work and many risks, my childhood dreams are being fulfilled after all these years. The dream of walking on the warm and colored earth of that hill, as I had done countless times in my imagination. The dream of travelling to meet people, and to experience moments that are as unforgettable as the couples I share them with. Dreams are there to make you want to live, hope and move on. Dreams make you happy, and are totally intoxicating when they become a reality…

Lauren & Dave.

With these two people, so obviously in love with one another, the word “connection” took on its full meaning. It was as if our meeting were part of our destiny. Once more, you are the living proof of the theory I have always believed in. Whatever the place, the landscape or any other “artifice”… For an artist, the present moment spent with the one you love is still the most beautiful scene to paint. I loved being able to give free rein to my imagination with you. The love you revealed during that short moment I shared with you was pure and real. That is the true meaning of happiness in my eyes and I need nothing more to be happy and fulfilled.

Nina & Erik – Barnsley House Cirencester

Barnsley House, Cirencester.

What a privilege to have spent those two days with Nina & Erik days at Barnsley House. It is a divine and mystical place where a soothing atmosphere prevails. Seconds, minutes and hours go by slowly when you are here. People take the time to live… Lulled by the birdsong of the hundreds of species whose home is this English countryside so dear to my heart. I am happy here.

Cirencester, a town in Gloucestershire County, about an hour and a half away from London, was a pleasant discovery. I love the United-Kingdom, London and its inhabitants, and countryside towns like Cirencester. This small England town is on a human scale. People cross on pavements, talk and know each other. This small England town is on a human scale. People cross on pavements, talk and know each other. I like the eve of a marriage through the streets, to settle a bar terrace, watch the passers empreigner me places.

For me, love is one of the most beautiful things to photograph. I am lucky, lucky to witness such intense moments. I have been in love with England for a long time, with its history, culture and people, and this couple makes me love it even more. There is nothing on Earth more beautiful than to have been able to spend that special day surrounded by the people you love.

Nina & Erik, I love writing, I really do, but I will never be able to put everything I felt during those two days with you into words, it would be too long. The point is not to read but to see: to see the love that exists between you two and the joy you bring to your families and friends who reflect your happiness. Your story here was a moment of pure happiness. For once, I’d rather let your pictures tell the story, set to music that takes me back to that wonderful day I was so lucky to share with you.
