Meet Marina, our team's amazing floral designer in Paris! Earlier in the year, we met up with Marina for a coffee at Palais Tokyo and then did these portraits of her along the Seine to show you the lovely face behind the floral creations we so love to use in our photoshoots! We have done surprise proposals, elopements, weddings and lovestories with the use of her bouquets and flower diadems and every time the results of her arrangements are stunning. Marina's floral design studio Fleurs Désir is also on instagram @ala_francaise where you can see more of her floral masterpieces and get ideas and inspirations for your special photoshoot or big day decorations in Paris and France.
A note on ordering the flowers for your shoot: we are always more than happy to arrange your bouquet or flower diadems for you, so please, let us know in a timely manner if you want us to arrange it. Keep in kind, that the flower markets are opened very early in the mornings for the florist to get the fresh supplies she needs to create your dream floral arrangement, so any such requests have to be done not later than 24 hours before your shoot. For spontaneous floral shopping sprees we can always take you to one of the many walk-in Parisian flower shops!
Keep in mind, that although Paris is probably one of the most exciting flower capitals, some flowers are so seasonal that you cannot get them all year around. If you are an anemones loving bride or can't see your lovestory without ranunculus, then we'll see you in early spring! If you can't have your Paris portraits taken without a bouquet of glorious peonies, then we'll see you for your shoot in June! Trust us, especially when planning weddings and Elopements, the flowers you pick and the love put into arranging them matters! And if you have any questions, either Marina or yours truly are always one email away to answer all your questions and make sure you have the Paris photoshoot to remember for years to come!
