French Riviera Photographer - A very glamorous event

Seems like lately I have been reliving my past summer. If you haven’t met her yet, you have to meet the crazy cool Temi Otedola of JTO Fashion. Temi is a total fashionista that has turned her love of fashion into an online platform that explores, creates and express herself and her unique cultural influences as a Nigerian raised in the UK. Personally, I’m in love with her sense of fashion. It’s luxurious yet playful and Temi has an amazing sense of color that I think looks amazing with the French Riviera as a backdrop. 

I met Temi through Flytographer and did a couple shoot with her in Monaco. 

Then, at the last minute, she flew to the coast to attend a party put on by Bulgari. The party was glam to the max. It was all so last minute that I really didn’t know what I was even attending when I got to the Grand Hotel Cap Ferrat but I realized quickly that it would be a star studded event when I was ushered through a garage filled with security. 

When I got my clearance to enter the hotel I was greeted by none other than Mr. Bulgari. There was some serious jewelry in the room. Some of it for sale and other pieces that had already been sold and were sitting pretty across the necks and wrists of the attendees. I got to steal Temi away from the madness for a few minutes to take photos outside in the amazing garden behind the hotel in her gorgeous Oscar de la Renta Gown. The color looked amazing with her and in this regal Riviera setting. If you haven’t been to the hotel you really must go; even if it’s just for a drink and a lazy stroll through the lush vegetation. 

The other photos we took were taken at Paloma Beach which is always a favorite place for me to shoot on the French Riviera. Enjoy the photos!
