When I first met Tomoko+Romain, a French-American couple from New York, they struck me as such elegant people. After getting to know them and shooting their engagement session in Central Park, I realized they were also incredibly sensitive and romantic souls. They got married at Chateau de Dangu, a beautiful estate in the countryside between Paris and Normandy. Knowing Tomoko, who is a beauty editor for a fashion magazine, and chatting about their wedding plans, I imagined their big day was going to look as lovely and stylish as she is. And it was! But what really touched me was how friendly and sensitive they both are, and how much they trusted me to capture their big day. All their international friends and families came together to celebrate, and as a French-American myself, it was fun and moving to capture this mix of cultures and traditions. During the cocktail hour, the entire wedding party – led by the French family – broke into a surprise choreographed dance… and the fun continued throughout the night!
