Selected weddings & elopements
While many of my weddings and vow renewals are conducted outside with views of the Eiffel Tower, I’ve also photographed events at the following venues:
♥ Hotel Marignan, Paris
♥ Château des Fines Roches, Avignon
♥ Church of La Madeleine, Paris
♥ American Church in Paris, Paris
♥ Ritz Hotel, Paris
♥ Hotel Evreux, Paris
♥ Commanderie de Peyrassol, Flassans-sur-Issole, Provence
Karina is an absolute joy to work with and her suggestions not only helped us capture stunning photos but were invaluable to helping us plan our vow exchange. Her knowledge of Paris locations for good photos is unparalleled and despite the oppressive heat wave she made us look amazing. I would 100% recommend her to anyone who wants to capture their special moments in Paris.

YOUR MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ANSWERED
If you have a question that is not covered then please get in touch, I am happy to answer any questions you have.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS?
Yes! I photograph intimate wedding ceremonies in Paris and throughout France as well as Greece and Italy. I also photograph Parisian wedding elopements, which are typically shorter ceremonies often accompanied with a photo session.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WEDDING & ELOPEMENT?
A wedding is usually a bit more traditional, and fits the following criteria:
- Ceremony in a church or place of worship
- Ceremony at a hotel or event center, such at the Ritz Hotel, Shangri-La or Hotel Marignan in Paris
- Ceremony in a chateau in Paris or throughout France
- Has between 10-50 guests or more
- Has a traditional ceremony followed by aperitif hour and dinner and sometimes a dance reception
- Has a traditional ceremony followed by a lunch
- Includes portraits of the couple and their family at the place of worship, or in Paris or near the event location, if in another part of France
- Includes photography coverage of up to 10 hours
An elopement is usually a very small and short ceremony with the couple themselves. It usually fits the following criteria:
- An elopement is usually a short ceremony of 20 minutes or less with an officiant/celebrant and the couple.
- If there are guests, it’s usually just 2-3.
- The couple desires to have an intimate ceremony to exchange vows, often with a view of the Eiffel Tower from a garden or terrace, such as those found in hotels such as the Shangri-La or Hotel Marignan in Paris.
- The couple desires portraits of the elopement ceremony and portraits around Paris.
- Includes photography coverage of up to 3 hours.
ARE YOU ALREADY COMPLETELY BOOKED FOR 2020?
I only accept so many weddings and elopements each year, so that I can give my very best, however, I still do have some availability for 2020.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I RESERVE MY WEDDING/ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER?
In general, Paris and France, in general, are very popular spots, so its best to reserve as far in advance as possible.
CAN I BE LEGALLY MARRIED IN FRANCE?
If you’re visiting France from another country such as the United States, ceremonies in France are not legal without specific marriage requirements, which often require you to be resident in the country for a period of time.
Therefore, most couples have a legal ceremony in their country, such as at the city hall, and the ceremony in France is symbolic, and very meaningful.
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE?
A lot of people classify my style as “light & airy”, versus the very popular “dark & moody”. The truth is, I’m neither.
Nor can I be defined as a fine art photographer, or a documentary photographer. What am I then?
The truth is, my style is a fusion of color and emotion. I incorporate vibrant color, enough brightness to show the happiness of a wedding day, but not to blow out highlights (I like to see the sky!). I love aspects of documentary and aspects of fine art. I fuse them together to tell a beautiful story of how a wedding day unfolded.
If we’re in a gorgeous spot, like a beach, a mountain, a chateau, or in Paris with the magnificent monuments, I’m also incorporating nature or architectural elements that set the stage for your wedding story.
DO YOU HELP ME PLAN MY DAY?
Absolutely, we’ll discuss your big day, and the kind of photography coverage you would like.
DO YOU REQUIRE A RETAINER/DEPOSIT?
A 50% non-refundable retainer is requested to reserve your date along with a signed contract.
Your non-refundable retainer ensures that your wedding date is reserved, and I accept no bookings after it is received.
The retainer may be paid by credit card or bank wire transfer. I do not accept cash payments.
WHEN IS THE FINAL PAYMENT DUE??
The balance will be due 30 days before your event and may be paid by credit card or bank wire transfer (I do not accept cash payments).
You can also opt to have installment payments up until the time your balance is due.
For example, if your wedding is on July 1:
- 50% non-refundable retainer to reserve your date
- 50% balance due June 1
- Smaller installment payments accepted up until June 1
