This week I’m in Dubai, UAE, with Sakina Paris to capture her journey these days. This photoserie below is taken on a beautiful yacht on a sunny day. French television M6 is making a documentary about big weddings in the Middle-East and Sakina is making the dress for the bride. Together with the bride we went on this beautiful yacht to see Dubai from the water perspective. We had the loveliest time together. Also talented make-up artist Nora Kourkis joined us during these days in Dubai.

A winter wedding, in the heart of Paris. Honestly, I made a little jump in the air when Safia and Reda asked me to photograph their wedding. It was always be my dream to photograph a wedding in Paris, and this one would be my first one! During our phone call, I already liked Safia. She is very kind and sweet, and wanted me to have a nice day too. And when I saw her wedding dress, I was even more exited for the day. She wore a dress with blue heels like Carry (for all the Sex And The City lovers)! With the flowers in her hair, and the little white fur coat, I was so in love with her outfit. The day could start, and I was very happy. After the ceremony, the group of friends and family went to the Shangri-la hotel for a lunch and photo session.
The weekend of 9 april 2017 couldn’t be better by visiting the Polo & Rally event in Chantilly together with my friends and new teammates of polo Team Architects. A perfect Sunday with no clouds, only blue sky, relaxing atmosphere and stunning outfits walking by while watching the polo match and the oldtimer cars arriving from their rally concours. A bottle of cold champagne is popped open after the picnic lunch. How much fun was this day! I feel happy and blessed. When we drove back home to Paris, we listened to Take on me – Aha and to the following song of Nina Simone:
