Chiara is a small and lovely baby that I had the pleasure to photograph 8 days after her birth. As a mum was telling, I was the first visitor since their return from the hospital. Therefore, Chiara was beginning her comeback to her home as a star with her first photo shoot! I loved photographing her, Chiara was such a lovely baby to shoot :).
Elise and Antoine make a stunning and beautiful couple that you had discovered during their engagement session in Lausanne. Some days after the engagement session, it was time for the great moment with their wedding that I had the pleasure to document. In fact, Elise and Antoine’s wedding was done on two days, the first being the civil ceremony in Pully, while the scond day was a garden party organized by the groom’s parents for everyone to enjoy this great wedding.
Wedding civil ceremony in Pully
The meeting was in front of the Pully wedding room for the civil ceremony of Elise and Antoine. The ceremony was joyful and filled with emotions with Elise’s family coming from France for this event. Joy and tears, it was the perfect mix for a great ceremony and pictures.
Bubbles were waiting for the newly weds to get out of the wedding room for this magical moment in their couple life !
Touristic train in Lavaux: Lavaux Express
The bride and groom made a surprise to their guests so that they could have a nice idea of the Lavaux vineyard. This is with the small touristic train Lavaux Express that everyone got to the apero destination departing from Cully.
A small break was held to drink a glass of wine and enjoy the wonderful view over Lausanne, the Geneva lake and the Lavaux.
Apero: caveau Fischer St Amour, Chenaux
then, it was time to go back on the train Lavaux Express to reach the apero location in Chenaux where the view over the Lavaux region and Geneva lake was still breathtaking.
Of course, we enjoyed the wonderful scenery of the Lavaux vineyard to take some couple photos with beautiful sunlight. A gorgeous bride and a wonderful couple in love, there was nothing more needed for a wedding photographer to enjoy those moments of happiness.
Weddin reception : Café des Mousquines, Lausanne
It was time to go back down to Cully with the small Lavaux Express train and to Lausanne for the wedding reception held in the Café des Mousquines. A small apero was held before the guests went to the wedding reception room. The table decoration was done with finesse by Elise with special personal love quotes for each guest. That was a wonderful decoration that got everyone sharing their personal notes about love around the table.
Wedding Garden Party, Prangins
The day after, it was in Prangins that the wedding garden party was organized by the groom’s parents. As soon as you arrived on location, you could not ignore the garden party purpose! Everything was wonderfully organized so that everyone could enjoy the moment and celebrate this wonderful wedding. Children also got a wonderful time in this gorgeous garden, with music by Gerberito.

When a future bride asks you with a great smile when will the photos be on the blog so that the whole family can enjoy them, how can I resist :)?
My mission of the day was therefore to make enjoy both families and the future bride and groom with this engagement session photos. I love spending this time with a couple because each side of the couple fastly exhibits his/her personality and we see appearing the couple dynamics. Here, the joyful colombian Brenda knew how to make the calm swiss Frédéric fall in love. A small word in Spanish for Brenda’s family and here we go with the photos.
¡A la familia de Brenda,quiero deciros que me ha encantado fotografiar esta maravillosa pareja y deseo que estas fotos os gustan tambien :). Proxima vez sera las fotos de la boda en junio!
Couple photos in Cully
As I explained it fastly in this engagement session sneak peek, our future couple decided to spend this engagement session on the Geneva lake shore and in the Lavaux. We therefore launched the engagement session in the peaceful and beautiful village of Cully.
We could not not make some pictures next to the beautiful Geneva lake!
Some old pétanque players were watching how this wonderful couple was behaving naturally in front of the camera, they thought they were professional models!
Engagement session in Lavaux
Second step of this engagement session, the Lavaux vinery. French-speaking Switzerland offers a wonderful environment for photography with this georgeous scenery of Lavaux and that, even though vines were still small at this time of the year.
The weather tried playing with us. We saw the rain passing by far away but in the end, we were still able to finish the engagement session without any problem before the storm got switched on during the way back home!
For Brenda and Frédéric’s wedding, I have the big task of making Brenda’s colombian family to live this wonderful day through my wedding photography since they will not be able to come to Switzerland. I will have the pleasure to document this wedding in June.
