Love & Lavender

Provence, France

The magical light in The south of France casts a honeyed warmth on everything it touches

It was the unique golden glow of the South of France that deeply captivated Pablo Picasso. From the foothills of the Alps to the mouth of the Rhône and from the Mediterranean Sea down south, Provence blends a delicate balance of countryside elegance and Riviera grandeur. An absolute idyllic setting for your dream wedding, the region is permeated with an enchanting smell of lavender fields and the soft breeze of Le Mistral. 

An absolute idyllic setting for your dream wedding

Blessed with abundant sunlight, Provence has a way of making timeless traditions feel exceptional. Situated in the Mediterranean heartland of France, the region engages in a hidden dialogue between its famous golden glow and its signature pastoral colors. This magical light casts a honeyed warmth on everything it touches, lending an ethereal quality to your wedding photographs and video, while sealing your memories with a unique patina. 

Love fills the air in Provence. Its romantic ambiance is palpable and stretches as far as your eyes can see: the silvery green veil covering the velvety lavender fields, the constant flux and change of evening sunsets, and the invaluable tranquility of the French countryside. Without a doubt, the amorous atmosphere inspires us to capture genuine emotions and tender moments of your big day.

Synonymous with its romantic ambiance and tranquility, the region's natural beauty creates an idyllic backdrop for a romantic and unforgettable South of France wedding celebration. From Aix-en-Provence’s perfumed hilltops to an intimate gathering among the sprawling villages of Gordes, Roussillon, Tourtour, Eze, and Saint-Paul de Vence, we draw together a mastery of the captivating wedding venues that Provence offers.

Here, nature is muse: the setting leads you through cypress trees, fountains and waterways that provide a wealth of timeless backdrops for your celebration. 


Whether you desire a sprawling fairytale castle or a quaint Provençal villa, Provence provides an abundance of options to suit every style and preference. Secret spots like the picturesque Luberon amplify a more refined approach to entertaining. Domaine des Andéols serves as a playground for personal discovery and cinematic photography. This historic region between Aix-en-Provence and Avignon sets the ideal back seat to your pictorial memoir. 


Provence is the gateway to the glamorous coastline of the French Riviera. Nestled within Cassis Bay, Domaine des Canaille is revered as the most exquisite villa in the region. Set against the backdrop of the mesmerizing turquoise Mediterranean Sea, it exudes an unparalleled elegance. Here, your wedding takes center stage, becoming the focal point of an enchanting narrative. For couples seeking privacy and sophistication, this historic haven offers an idyllic setting for a truly memorable celebration.


Gordes is steeped in history and tradition. The commune’s picturesque vineyards and vast olive groves in the region make it a favorite destination for gastronomes and art lovers from around the world. La Bastide de Gordes is carved in breathtaking splendor upon a former state home. The old stone structure perfectly blends the region’s traditional atmosphere with unforgettable panoramic views from its terraces, imprinting your wedding photo and video with true provençal beauty and tangible emotion.


Have you ever dreamed of a wedding that looks like a fairy tale?

The palette at Château de la Gaude is characterized by an expansive 18th century estate nestled in a green haven where lighting becomes an unforgettable witness to your I Dos.


Magnetic. Cosmopolitan. Irresistible: Avignon is nestled in the heart of Provence. If the walls could speak, they would reveal the secrets of its monastic past and its fascinating medieval history.

How and when will we receive our photos and film?

You will enjoy the cinematic experience on big screens or on smaller devices.

How do you price your photo and film services?
