We LOVE this little magic engagement session shot by Sophie Delaveau.  Sophie is a French photographer and I adore her style.

“Séverine and Guillaume wanted their engagement session took place in Brittany (France) in the oyster-farming owned by the family. It wasn’t a poetic or romantic place for an engagement session but I love that; because the place is not the most important.  Let the magic of love operate !  This was  is my first engagement session for my 2012 bride and groom. They will be getting married in September 2012 in Bordeaux (France).  I think I can say we were connected in the very first minutes we met the day of their engagement session.  I love feeling like as my couples and I are friends and we know since a long time. We talked, laughed, and appreciate every minutes we spent together.
Gesture, looks, laughs, tenderness, … Because love is all different for every couple I met, I want them to be honest with their feelings, emotions and personality. As I like natural, raw emotions, spontaneity and authenticity, I want my couples to feel connected and to remember why they love each other. And I photograph who they are and how they love each other: the body language is so powerful.”

    These are breathtaking. I love them.

    And I’d LOVE a shot at the Rs-4 Classic!! I’m in need of a GOOD camera strap, and it’d be lovely to have one that would be easy to wear while chasing 3 kidlets!

    I LOVE these pics. As a wedding/event photographer I am always interested in seeing images of love. It is inspiring. The Black Rapid camera strap would be an excellent addition to my event package. I often carry 2 cameras at once. Their amazing design would make that so much easier.

  • Lynda says:

    Oh and i LOVE your site, so magical. The name is excellent too! It is what I have been telling my clients for years when they ask me what to wear. I tell them to let the kids dress themselves.

    Totally cool, powerful connection between these two. Caught myself smiling while admiring Sophie’s work.

    The timing of your Black Rapid giveaway is kind of crazy. I just discovered them the evening before this post and spent an hour admiring and debating on whether or not to purchase one but with a cart full of other shooting necessities, comfort took a back seat. I’m a shoulder-wearer when it comes to shooting and it’s always a hassle to have a strap that works against you rather than with you. The RS-4 classic would be a dream.
