It was an extraordinary experience that enriched me on a human and professional level!

I was able to raise my portfolio and the value of my photographic services making it easy to take economic as well as experiential advantage from this.

The retreat experience also put me in contact with photographers from other countries and it was wonderful to compare and cross our paths.

I am still in contact with many of them and it has helped to create a sense of community and stylistic aggregation that goes far beyond one's personal portfolio.

The details were refined and accurate, outfits stunning, the models amazing, I would be happy to participate in the next edition!

Nyachia is an amazing planner who knows all the ins and outs of the luxury wedding industry market in Southern France. Just that is a feature that might make it worth it to follow another workshop of her and connect with her.

She also worked with us and listened to our needs during the day to be able to provide us with everything we needed to make our shoot a success. She is a colorful person and so was our shoot, I'm so glad I could finally add some color to my portfolio after all the blush tones! After the shoot, she tried to help us figure out where to best submit our work for publication. Thank you for all of your hard work!

Hey there! I’m Nyachia, Destination Wedding Planner & Editorial Stylist and have been named among Top Wedding Planners by Martha Stewart Weddings as well as featured in Top Weddings Blogs such as Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, Wedding Sparrow, Magnolia Rouge and more!

I've had over 15 years of experience in the luxury and event industry, working with some of the top brands, vendors and publications in the wedding world for the past 7 years.

Which means that I have gained a good eye at identifying fashion flair that helps set you apart as a destination wedding photographer.

When I was first starting out building my portfolio, I wish I had some guidance on what brides actually look for in a destination wedding vendor because I know I could have moved forward faster, with the support of those who came before me.

I also learned that it’s more than just putting together beautifully curated imagery, and after realizing that I had to embody the identity of a luxury wedding planner, was I able to start attracting my dream clients. I can't wait to welcome you to the French Riviera!


I have been documenting weddings since 2016.  Originally from Indonesia, and now based in Southern California, my love of travel and culture have led me to photograph destination weddings around the world. My eye for detail, connection with my couples, and seamless creation of natural moments allow me to create impactful images.  With an MBA in marketing and a dual BA degree in Economics and Psychology, I am passionate in helping photographers and entrepreneurs create a business that is both profitable and fulfilling.  

Gratefully, my work has graced the cover of Inside Weddings Magazine and has been featured in publications from Brides, Martha Stewart Weddings, People magazine, Style Me Pretty, the Knot, and more.  I have also been named Best Photographer by California Wedding Day 5 years in a row.  

I cannot wait to share my journey with you and share my lessons learned along the way!  Let’s connect and create in the French Riviera!
