French Riviera Inspired Engagement Photos

These French Riviera inspired engagement photos take place in the most beautiful setting! And although it isn’t quite its French counterpart, the sandy shores of Sausalito came close for the beautiful shoot. We’re loving the romantic atmosphere, colorful florals, and the bride’s posh outfits. What bride to-be shouldn’t wear white for her engagement shoot?! Janelle Evans at Creative Collaborations planned and designed the beautiful day with a fabulous team of vendors. Together, they hope to inspire you to think outside the box (and country!) for your own engagement photos!

Janelle says,  Amazing hair and make up Artist April Foster teamed up with a creative team of professionals set out to travel to Paris in Sausalito, California. Inspired by the French Rivera (Cote d’Azur), with beaches, hills, and quaint little seaside villages, we choose to film right on the beach to create an experience and inspiration for couples.

The design was inspired with florals at the center of it all. The variations of the bright floral arrangements placed in buckets and baskets enhanced that French market feel. The yachts, the sound from beach waves and the sand reminded us we were still in California. The incorporation of the two created one magnificent day for an engagement shoot.


The gold, white and neutral tones in the place settings and invitations complimented the beauty in the floral arrangements. All the elements of this shoot came together with grace and ease. The two-tiered cake was hand painted with bright colors with metallic gold flakes. And the white lettering on the neutral colored invites added just the right pop.

The beautiful bride to be wore a white jumpsuit and flowy white dress from LOHO Bride. Meanwhile, the groom wore a suit from the Black Tux. There was lots of laughter, love, and fireworks.
