PARIS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | WEDDING STORIES
To be at your side on the occasion of your wedding or a session is for me to tell your story and this moment in pictures. Above all, I like wedding reports because they bring immense and rare emotions. In my opinion, the most beautiful way to highlight this day is to do it in the form of a photo report.
The photographic report of your wedding begins as your love story: always a beautiful encounter! Originally from Brittany, I live near Paris and I make photographic reports all over France. I would therefore be very happy to meet you and accompany you for your wedding in Paris or Ile de France.
In order to capture the strong and unforgettable moments of your wedding, I like to exchange with the future brides and grooms, all the details of your story have an important role to play in capturing all your emotions and getting to know you in order to offer you pictures that look like you!
My motto: a discreet photographer for natural photos....
As you will have understood, I advocate natural photography, the moments of life captured on the spot. I like to capture the little tear or the big burst of laughter, the love on the faces and the excitement of the assembly in my camera and thus offer you a report that is faithful to the image of your couple, your family and friends in all their spontaneity...
From the preparations to the wedding cake, the photographic report will remain faithful to your wedding day: from the detail of the bride's hairstyle to the delicate knotting of the groom's bow tie, from the lace of your dress to the colour of your costume, from the first-look always moving at the end of your ceremony, from the entrance of your reception to the smallest decorative detail, your D-day will be my priority!
Wedding photographer in Paris, I am in love with bucolic and unusual city scenes. All these places of the Romantic Paris have something magical in my pictures: the passages, the alleys, the cobbled streets....are a dream setting and make me a privileged witness of your love. I travel around Paris, France and even the world to accompany you on your wedding day. Above all, I like to capture the highlights of your life. Wedding is unique in that it brings together an incredible amount of emotions. All these emotions, which I like to capture so much: laughter, tears, joy, excitement, pride, gratitude and many others, are the perfect cocktail to make a photo report. A wedding day is an event where every detail has a special importance that must be captured.
A wedding day shines in different and sometimes unpredictable light. This contributes to the beauty of such an event and makes it possible to have contrasting or rather soft scenes. It is important for me to play with these different lights and put them at the service of the bride and groom and their guests. The weather on a wedding day is one of the important concerns of the bride and groom. I like to cover weddings in all situations and adapt to the natural light available to highlight scenes that will be truly unique. Shadows are for me an essential asset of the story I want to tell with you. The lights of a window or the shadows of a tree, bride and groom or an element of the decor define an atmosphere and highlight important moments.
It seems that nature does things well...
A snapshot taken in natural light is always a reflection of the most beautiful thing....
During my photo reports, I prefer to give free rein to emotion, to your natural attitudes and I always try to put you at ease for unasked photos, more free and in my opinion, always more beautiful. For light, I also give maximum priority to the natural. Indeed, I do not use flash during the day to preserve the shadows and soft shades of natural light. During the evening, when the brightness becomes too low, I use flashes of course, trying my best to preserve a natural look. The natural has that something ephemeral that makes photography so precious, the intact reflection of the moment lived, of your day so strong in feelings!
This day is also the marriage of colours. There are of course the surrounding colours of the wedding: sky, places or landscapes. But what makes this day unique and ephemeral comes from the combination of all the other nuances of D-day: There are the tonalities of the style or theme chosen by the couple (Boho, Rustic-chic, minimalist, vintage, trendy, rock or other). There are also the colours of the region or country of the wedding, the fusion of the roots or origins of the bride and groom and guests, the colours and shades of the dresses, costumes and other accessories, the blues, reds, greys and pinks of the time or the tonality given by the guests. The colours are so present and so diverse on the day of the event that I am always keen to restore them and bring my creativity and relief. The colours will also be the common thread to tell and retrace the story of this wonderful day!
Before the wedding: the first exchanges with the future bride and groom sometimes begin even before knowing the wedding date: on the occasion of their marriage proposal… It is a magical moment, which I like to photograph, because it will forever remain an engraved moment for the loving couple with often immense emotions. In most cases, the future spouses contact me during the organization of their wedding, shortly after the fitting of wedding dresses or the choice of the place of reception. It is very important for me to meet the bride and groom before the wedding and to get to know their history. I want to build mutual trust and a friendly atmosphere so that they can fully enjoy their wedding day and be as relaxed as possible on D-Day. This complicity will contribute to the smooth running of the day and will be the little extra for a lively and natural reporting.
The wedding day: as for the bride and groom, a wedding day is, for the photographer, a day like no other. It is most often a full-day photo essay. This requires professionalism and discretion, but also experience in framing and shooting to capture key moments of the day. The day usually begins with the preparations, then comes the ceremony, the couple photos, the cocktail, the decoration, the dinner, the set up room, the opening of the ball and finally the evening: most often between 10 and 14 hours of shooting. It is essential to use a very professional photographer who will be able to adapt to all light and weather conditions and the time constraints imposed by the day. In this sense, I always prepare this day in advance with the bride and groom so that they feel comfortable on the day. My main objective is to be able to freeze the natural expressions of the bride and groom and their families and guests. It is also important for me to bring my sensitivity and creativity to it to deliver the most beautiful memories possible. I work with high quality professional photo equipment. A sharp equipment allows to photograph in even difficult light conditions and it also allows to save and secure the photos throughout the day. In my opinion, photographing the whole day with the approach of photojournalism, i.e. in a documentary and spontaneous way, will allow you to relive the event completely with its strong and moving moments.
After the wedding: When the wedding ends, it is time for me to protect the photos and save them in several copies. Then comes the post-treatment phase, this work is also essential since it will determine the aesthetic rendering of the photos. I process each color photo and a part of the black and white photos. In my opinion, to transcribe a wedding day is to tell a story: your story. The crucial step for me is both the work of colors and finding THE treatment that will sublimate the images. In a second step, I provide the bride and groom with a web gallery with all the wedding photos. I then deliver a personalized box set to the bride and groom, containing high-resolution images and fine art prints: an object that will, I hope, be an unforgettable memory before you fly to your honeymoon!
My wedding report concerns all styles of weddings, the ceremonies differ according to the choices of the future bride and groom: the civil ceremony, the religious ceremony (Catholic wedding, Jewish wedding, marriage in the Muslim tradition, Hindu wedding, Shinto wedding or others…), the secular ceremony, the intimist wedding: elopement… etc.
I produce photo reports of weddings in Paris but also throughout the Ile de France: the Yvelines, the Hauts de Seine, the Val de Marne, the Seine et Marne, the Essonne, the Seine-Saint-Denis and the Val d’Oise.
In Paris and throughout the region, the service providers for wedding venues are numerous, diverse and of exceptional quality. Whether it is a wedding in a castle, on the banks of the Seine or in a prestigious wedding venue (Hôtel du Ritz, Hôtel de Crillon, Hôtel le Meurice, Hôtel le Dauphine, Maison de l’Amérique latine, Domaine de Quincampoix, Ferme d’Armenon, Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay…etc), they are magical places to immortalize your wedding and take beautiful photos.
Wedding photography represents a large part of my profession as a professional photographer, but I also work on portrait and lifestyle photography more generally: photo shooting, couple’s session, bachelorette parties, corporate portrait, event photography, family photography, pregnancy photography, children’s portraits and photo courses.
I invite you to contact me and discover my wedding blog and my services in the menu to get more information.
Organizing a wedding is a new adventure that involves several steps and raises doubts and questions. First of all, the first exercise is to select the right wedding providers to make your wedding unique. This first step is determined by your budget and the number of guests, but also by the region or country chosen, the style of your wedding or the colours of the event. In order to make the best choices for you, you can consult wedding guides, wedding salons and of course be accompanied by a wedding planner who will be able to guide you and advise you on finding excellent providers.
The wedding planner will know how to determine and find the right addresses to make your wedding original and authentic. If you are getting married in Provence, Corsica, Paris, Brittany or Seine et Marne, the experience of these wedding planners will save you precious time and open doors that only they know! Getting married represents an important moment in life, it is the opportunity to reunite your loved ones, your family and to offer them a day of good humor in your image. For a successful upscale wedding, a country, rock or urban wedding, etc., many options are available to you and the organization of the wedding, alongside a professional, can be invaluable especially if your schedule is tight until the D-day.
By visiting my site, you are of course looking for your wedding photographer. Wedding photographers are numerous and the photographic expectation differs from one couple to another. For your wedding photos, you want beautiful pictures taken by a good experienced professional photographer and not the work of an amateur. This wish is shared by the vast majority of brides and grooms, but behind this expectation hides a multitude of tastes, sensitivities, requirements and budgets! From the shooting to the reception of the photos, a huge choice of photographers is offered to you and the choice is not necessarily easy. The aesthetics of the images and what emerges from the photos can help the bride and groom make a decision, but recommendations and word of mouth can also make the photographer’s choice easier. Your taste may be pronounced for silver or rather digital photography delivered by a reflex camera… your attention will be focused on emotion, smiles, reportage, couple photos, a taste for original photography… On the contrary, You are rather looking for a professional with a fine art style and more posed photos with an editorial touch… Your desire is to engrave this souvenir on a photo book or to make prints… The range is wide, even very wide and the only advice I can give you is to choose a photographer who seduces you with his images, with whom you have a good feeling and for whom you may already have had very good feedback.
For the floral composition of your wedding, the right florist will also prove to be an important choice, who will bring the elegance and style you want throughout the day. Again, finding the right professional is not always easy. When it comes to a secular ceremony, his role is all the more important as he will be the guarantor of the floral architecture and the elegance of the ceremony. He is in charge of the table decoration, the ceremonies, the cocktail, the bouquet, the boutonnieres and many details that decorate the reception area. Wedding blogs, wedding planners, social networks and recommendations will be good assets to find your wedding florist.
The professional who will take care of your wedding stationery should be chosen carefully. He or she will carry the day’s graphic design, starting with the invitations, through the menus, the ceremony booklets, then the wedding decoration, the seating plan, the brunch invitation cards, right up to the thank you card, and so on.
I work with many wedding actors every year and if possible I will try to advise you if you need any tips or tricks to make your choice.
