The modern Provence bride – An editorial featuring one of Maevana’s silk gowns and small town’s French gardens

The modern Provence bride

This shoot is a marriage of modern and traditional.

I love how the traditional aspects of the well-manicured French gardens and the silk gowns clash with the 3D embroidered veil and Eva, our edgy bride. Eva was perfect for this shoot, she rocks the dress with her tattoos and her bulky jewelry whilst still being effortlessly elegant and beautiful.

Full circle

This shoot was a very special one for me.

It took place in July 2022, when I was traveling back home to France after three years away due to being unable to travel during the pandemic. Being away from home for such a long period of time is an interesting experience. Every place, every smell, every sound, and everyone I see again came with its own kick of nostalgia.

To be honest, growing up in Provence as a child, a teenager, and a young adult, I used to think it was boring and couldn’t wait to get out in the big wild world. I’m so glad that this is where my roots are though. I now have a newfound appreciation for this place and all the memories it holds, a fresh pair of eyes that make me notice light and landscapes in a way I never did before, and a deeper desire to spend quality time with people who make this place one of my homes.

The last time I had come home, I was still a teacher and hadn’t even started my wedding photography business yet. I definitely had a full-circle moment during that shoot.

Destination wedding photography

Having grown up in France and with family and friends not only still living across the country but also across Europe, I am now delighted to offer destination wedding and editorial photography as part of my services.

I will be in Europe during the summer of 2023 traveling to countries such as Holland, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, Portugal and France. If you are getting married, eloping, want to have an engagement session, or are interested in organising an editorial shoot together, make sure to get in touch soon! I will only take very a limited number of bookings during that time.
