Chateau de la Borderie wedding photographer

An American destination wedding in France

Welcome to Western France, to a charming town of Benest. Chateau de la Borderie is where I shot the amazing wedding of Rebecca and Ramon, an American wedding in France. We had an amazing day and I’m very happy to have worked with two of them and the wedding party. I always enjoy travelling to France and shooting there, as I love the light and environment there. The cosy town of Benest with it’s surrounding vinyards is the perfect example of what I like there. If you’re getting married and looking for a wedding photographer in France – be sure to get in touch with me.

Enjoy.

learning from the best

I love this shot, this ring boy seems so small between those men, but I remember that feeling from childhood, when I was doing something in a company with grownups, I also felt big and very important. All grooms men received as a thank you gift stylish wooden watches.

Wedding group Photographs

Fun and relaxed group photoshoot. My suggestions for group photoshoots is you arrange a person who knows everybody on the wedding day. So he or she personally knows who needs to bee in each group so no one is left out.

La Hora Loca

“La Hora Loca” it means The Crazy Hour in Spanish. It has become a very hot wedding trend lately. Usually it is an hour long show that a bit resembles the Brazil’s Carnaval. You can start it after the wedding dinners official part. Like a party starter to warm everyone up. Pass around party masks and hats or glowing lights to encourage wedding guests to dance.

This wedding trend started in South American countries as Peru, Argentina and Brazil but was invented in Spain. And boy Spanish people know how to party.Cheers to that.
