I had the amazing opportunity of photographing a wedding in France. What a beautiful country. I had lived there a few years ago, and it was wonderful to be back.

The bride and groom, Miye and Christophe, decided to do a photo shoot in the Alps, near their home. That’s right–I just wrote that. The Alps, near their home. They have a spectacular view everywhere they go. It is breathtaking.

Disclaimer: This particular stretch of mountains is high in altitude, so there’s snow on the peaks. It was freezing cold. As in winter cold. It didn’t deter this bride. The goats either. One of them was starting to eat her gown… and that was before even starting to shoot. Cows with their heavy bells came later.

I’m so happy she decided to keep the boots on. They were perfect.

These mountains are especially meaningful to the groom’s heart as his father used to take him on hikes as a child. His father is a true mountaineer.

These two lovebirds are incredibly beautiful. The light was perfect. The camera loves them.

Isn’t she stunning! Miye’s parents are of Congolese, Greek and Chinese descents. Christophe pulls his own with his chiseled face straight out of an Armani ad. His parents are of Algerian and French descents. I know what you’re thinking… gorgeous children.

I love the expression of this image below. They were having a wonderful time! 

Christophe is a gentleman. Look at the way he leads his lady down the mountain. Carefully. With love. 

I will be posting their wedding soon. Just as magical. The ceremony took place between Lake Léman and a castle…
