Engagement Session from French Riviera

engagement photographyToday we have a beautiful engagement session from French Riviera photographer Thomas Audiffren. These photos came out so wonderfully because he knew the couple and they felt so comfortable with a friend behind the camera. Below, Thomas gives us a few tips on how he managed the ever-changing weather in Antibes to capture some really intimate moments in this seaside town..sweet engagement photos in the streets of Antibesplanning an engagement shoot in France wedding ring photos in Antibes

This engagement session was very special for me. Amélie and Axel are dear friends of mine and I felt so lucky to be shooting in the old town of Antibes on the French Riviera. I think this particular location gives everything you need for an incredibly lovely photo session because you can find little streets, typical of the South of France, full of flowers. Then just a few steps away you can be on the beach. Old rocks and a sea view, what else could we need?

As I always do, I spent almost one hour walking in the streets of this beautiful city to find the very best locations for the photo shoot. While I was waiting for my friends I saw the sunny day becoming very cloudy. It is not supposed to be a problem during a winter session but, because of the weather forecasts, I encouraged them to choose… spring clothes. In an act of pure bravery and solidarity, I decided not to keep my jacket with me. If they are frozen, so am I.

Surprisingly, this location was warmer than expected and warmer than the beach spot because of a strong wind. It is very important to take warm clothes with you during a winter engagement session to protect you between two different spots.antibes church
