making soulful wedding images for people in love

As many of you know, this was a particularly exciting year for Maru Photography as myself and my dear friend Kasia over at French Grey Events, teamed up to launch the first installment of L'Artisan Workshop in beautiful Paris, France this past October. L'Artisan Workshop is an international, boutique workshop designed for wanderlust photographers and stylists of intimate destination weddings and elopements to immerse themselves in four days of inspiration, education and authentic living in France. And what a wonderful four days it was! We photographed, we styled, we ate delicious French food, sipped delicious French champagne and explored the exciting world of destination weddings at beautiful Chateau Barthelemy, an 18th century, family run Chateau nestled into the hillside just outside of Paris. So much beauty yet to come but while we wait for my images to hit the pages of some lovely wedding blogs, here is a little preview of some of the pretty we surrounded ourselves with...

And here is the best news...there will be a second installment of L'Artisan Workshop, taking place in October, 2018...and yes, gorgeous Paris will once again be our home! Details will be released soon, stay tuned! Seats will be limited---we want to keep it intimate---so if you would like to be the first to get the details and an opportunity to book your seat, pop me an email and I will be happy to add your name to our email list! L'Artisan Workshop 2017 sold out quickly and we anticipate the same for L'Artisan Workshop 2018, so don't delay!


They say it takes a village... Here is the village that helped us turn our L'Artisan Workshop vision into a magnificent reality:
