joanna and françois-jérôme had an incredible wedding at the chateau de chambiers in the small village of durtal just a few hours outside of paris. i highly recommend everyone get married there.

i photographed this wedding with my good friend jean-laurent gaudy who arranged for this to happen. check out his work here.
