Another Classic wedding photography Look

Posted by Olivier lalin- French, riviera, wedding, photo,luxury+car+rental, getting+married, south+of+France+wedding, classic+black+and white, photographer+Stylish, Villa+Ephrussi+wedding
Just thinking! This shot seems timeless.It was shot a couple of months ago in the South of France! It felt like everything lead to a 50's photo ambiance: the Tuxedo, the Bride's hair style, the Look of this magnificent car. I had to ask the couple to take the pose and just look at the camera peacefully! Still today this image reminds me of the movie "Casablanca"where Humphrey Bogart played the part of Rick Blaine and Ingrid Bergman the magnificent Ilsa Lund.

Wedding in Jamaica

Posted by Olivier Lalinjamaica,wedding,photography, photographer, mariage, ceremony, Wedding+Vowes, destination+wedding, Caribbean+ wedding, the ritz carlton, wedding+hotel+france, resort+wedding+south+france

Where would one want to get married in Jamaica!
The Ritz Carlton, Montego Bay is a FABULOUS destination. Winding through the mountains of Jamaica's historic 5,000-acre Rose Hall Plantation, The White Witch Golf Course makes it even more of an ideal wedding destination. The course is carved out of 600 acres of lush greenery and rolling countryside that features panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea from 16 of its 18 holes. Conveniently located just ten minutes from the hotel...

This is my favorite wedding reception site in the big Apple, I love this place!
The University Club of New York, located at 1 West 54th Street at Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, New York, NY is a private club. It received its charter in 1865, but the origins date back to the autumn of 1861 when a group of college friends, principally Yale alumni, founded the club hoping to extend their collegial ties....

Nice words from Bob Davis at bella pictures!

posted by Olivier Lalin -
I just read those words this morning written by Bob Davis, chief photographer at bella pictures. He happened to photograph the wedding of Tony Parker in Paris this Summer.
I could relate to every words and I thought I would pass it on.
"...We were so blessed with the opportunity to photograph the
wedding of Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmond's wedding on a private island just off the coast of Bora Bora. I think what's truly amazing is that we were chosen to photograph their wedding. I mean that wholeheartedly. Me, Bob and George, we're just 3
people from a small town. What we've done... is never given up. We
knock on doors all the time, a lot of times the doors close and we
find ourselves knocking again. We never give up on our dreams. We try
very hard to meet and exceed all our clients expectations and then we
keep knocking. If I can give any piece of advise to someone who
asks... it's use whatever resources you have to make your dreams come
true. They are probably not going to just happen, you have to do what
you can to make them happen. Visualize them happening, think
positively, do whatever good you can to move forward and the doors
will open. They've opened for us. And for that we are so appreciative.
We thank God everyday for our blessings! Amen..."

How I couldn't choose my own destination wedding photographer! Our Wedding photos and some wonderful Memories

Posted by Olivier Lalin -
I just had a thought about my own Destination wedding, my beautiful wife and our wedding photography total improvisation. I happened to take the pictures as we couldn't find a photographer that "fitted our expectations!"
I know it is crazy ... Regardless, I am so glad Yanique and I took a few photos with a little point and shoot camera I had and time exposure, That's right ...
"For the curious ones...beautiful memories "

My wedding photographic style on location at The Harold Pratt House, New York City

Posted by Olivier Lalin -
I have been asked by a client to define my wedding photographic style in a few words- Difficult task and i might tend to use thousands words rather to condense 18 great years of passionate wedding photography on all 5 continents.I just picked 10 photos that I believe visually summarize what wedding photography should be about. I hope You will enjoy looking at those photos as much as I enjoyed taking them at the Wedding of Snezhana and Marco Londoner at "Council of Foreign Relations "aka The Harold Pratt House back in november.
