Deirdre and Maurizio have been together for a really long time and did not need any wedding to show their love to each other. 2 wonderful children and a lovely family, that’s what I discover while talking with this family before the wedding. I was wonderfully welcomed in their home and all the wedding guests were incredibly nice to me. This wedding was to be a great moment of enjoying a simple yet wonderful family reunion with no stress or anything else like that. Enjoying this day peacefully was the most important things for the bride and groom and I love this wedding vision.
On the road, the storm just started. Hard to see something with such a downpour. I had prepared the umbrella for this photo shoot but I would have liked Mégane and Maël not to experiment their engagement session at Chillon castle under the pouring rain. Fortunately, while arriving to Chillon Castle, the storm stopped and after some minutes, all the humidity had dissipated. After-storm atmospheres are always strong and wonderful with a gorgeous light, as I had already seen it while photographing Christelle and Michaël some time ago for a couple photosession. This is how the engagement session got started. This wonderful couple breathes love so much, happy in life that easily translated into their photos. I had such a wonderful time with them both! I look forward to documenting their wedding in September in the Valais, Switzeland, and also meet their baby Keylan!
You already know the couple Brenda and Frédéric from their engagement session that was held in the Swiss Lavaux and on the shore of the Geneva Lake in Cully. On June 7th, it was their wedding day with a beautiful familiy wedding at La Sarraz Castel. I was greatly honored of accompanying this beautiful couple and make their wedding photos that will cross the Atlantic ocean to reach Colombia so that Brenda’s family can enjoy the wedding since they could not make the travel to Switzerland. I loved seeing them use Skype before and during the wedding ceremony so that Brenda’s family could accompy her during this wonderful moment.
The engagement session is always a wonderful time spent with my lovely couples so that I can better know them, discover their personalities and also know which time of atmosphere they like for their engagement session. Elise and Antoine met in Lausanne and love its historical center. It was therefore just logical to make this engagement session in the heart of the sweet city of Lausanne, right under its beautiful cathedral. All those paved streets, but also the stairway to the Lausanne cathedral, were a wonderful playground for a wedding photographer like me for a urban engagement session in the evening in Lausanne.
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.

Funny wedding video – Things that you do at a wedding that would look creepy everywhere else
I stumbled upon this video that is just hilarious. If you are preparing your wedding and feel a little stressed about it, just take some minutes to watch this funny wedding video and relax ;).
Funny wedding video
My favorite part is definitely related to children and trusting them with valuables! Everything goes throught the Buzzfeed team, as save-the-date, formal wear, throwing rice to celebrate an exit, being a bridezilla, and so many more. Hopefully, there was nothing in this video about wedding photography ;). By the way, what is your favorite part of this video about wedding rituals?
