A Princess Affair 天變地變情不變



"Deep in every heart slumbers a dream, and the couturier knows it: every woman is a princess." - Christian Dior 


I first met Eloise Masse in Venice in 2015...this is one of the most beautiful women at the Venice Carnevale (and in the world)...she comes from France and is always dressed in Princess attire...

We first met in Venice during Carnevale, at the alley with the Green Door, when Eloise was having a photo session with her French photographer. It was purely a chance encounter. I was doing another photo shoot with a masked costumer dressed as Maleficent so I asked for a collaboration. Yeah, and the usual stuff, I ask people for their contact number and email address. Thereafter, I meet up with Eloise every year in Venice, and our favourite haunt must be the Cafe Florian.

We have quite a lot in common because we like Fantasy dreams, Fairy Tale like themes and medieval locations and our love for Venice never change. Even as adults, we never forget the meaning of fairy tales and we never stopped believing in them. As long as you dream it, you can definitely achieve it, and if you dream a thing more than once, it’s sure to come true...

Eloise did invite me to visit her in her native France and we met at Vaux le Vicomte...yes the palace at where Leonardo Di Carprio's "The Man in the Iron Mask" was filmed, and like a true Princess, Eloise arrived with her pet horse....

All these photos here are done using natural lighting alone...In Venice, we enjoy making photos as such because we all know today’s special moments will be tomorrow’s memories...
