Happy, happy Friday, loves. It’s that time of the week where we gush over all the gorgeousness of the past five days and try to top it off with something ultra-fabulous. And this week, I’m wholeheartedly certain you’re going to love what we’ve got in store. Captured by one of our favorite photographers from across the pond, mister Alexander James, this South of France engagement is the complete and total package. See even more picnic pretty right here, and stay tuned for this week’s winners!

From Alexander James… I traveled to Fonvieille in the South of France to photograph Alev and Can who had flown in from Turkey that morning. We held the session at Chateaux Estoublon, a gorgeous estate with olive and grape plantations surrounding the Chateaux. Despite horizontal rain, low temperatures and super dull skies the session was filled with love and beauty. Alev and Can were brilliant they didn’t bat an eyelid at anything I asked and we had a great time together. I can’t wait to return there.
