Lifestyle shoot in the French Riviera

Love on a yacht outside Monaco

 

In the southeast corner of France lies Principality of Monaco in all it’s beauty looking out onto the Mediterranean Sea.  Known for it’s famous casino Monte Carlo, as home of the Monaco Grand Prix, and a premier recreation destination to the rich and famous, one arrives to Monaco via train along the French Riviera either southbound from Italy, or northbound from Nice.  You could also drive a car along the breathtaking winding roads of Europe and try to overpass the newest Ferrari cars, Lamborghini models, and Porches.  Or you could do as many do, by yacht.

When I traveled to and explored this region of France, called the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, I met some of the loveliest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, Glen and Linda.  The couple were married in Monaco at  Saint Nicholas Cathedral, the same church as Princess Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III exchanged vows, but lived in the beautiful commune of Villefranche-sur-Mer.  She has an incredible event planning business and he is a captain of a yacht.  They invited me to go with them from Villefranche and moor in Monaco overnight and we decided to do a little photo shoot on-board using Monaco as our gorgeous backdrop!
