To be creative means to be in love with life.
You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty.
You want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.

personality and PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Born in 1976 in Saintes (Charente-Maritime / France) I was always something of a natural dreamer. Child I loved sports and all things related to image (cinema, comics, etc.). After studies of International Business in Rochelle, Bilbao, Newcastle and Bordeaux I started my professional career abroad, in Spain, in Portugal and Holland. It was in the course of these different times that I discovered in the photography a true mode of expression and finally my vocation. Humility, respect and hard work are important values for me. I do not believe in coincidences. Meeting people and events enrich us and allow us to evolve. I like to be in contact with nature while being fascinated by architecture and human creativity in general.

My VISION OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

I am a full-time professional photographer since 2010. Having started in social and school photography, I progressively made wedding photography my main activity. I like the challenge which represents every marriage: creating emotional pictures during a special day that goes by so fast! My goal is to capture every detail, pick moments on the spot, compose beautiful “paintings”, fit to any situation or unexpected incidents, etc. The bridegrooms often thank me for my discretion, professionalism, flexibility and kindness (see testimonials). For me the photographer must fade into the background and find good compromise between bridegrooms’ wishes , Big day planning and photographic possibilities (light, decors, etc). A wedding is also for me the opportunity to meet nice people and to discover new landscapes, lights and colors.

SOURCES OF INSPIRATION

My style is in perpetual evolution. The eye of the photographer is a diamond which it is necessary to cut continuously. My sources of inspiration are everywhere: the best photographers (Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, etc.) as the "colleagues “ of the whole world (Twomann, Look Fotografia, etc.), the best painters, cinema, music clips, advertising, etc. I thought for a long time that I had to concentrate only on myself however there is so much to learn from others without copying their work. My objective during every wedding is to create pictures that are authentic, emotional, poetic, refined and modern. Free from any stylistic or technical pressure: Black and White or colour? It depends. Flash or natural light? It depends, etc. My style is also your style, it is important for me to produce pictures which fit with your cultural world. Finally my style depends on the gear I work with : top of the line cameras and lenses plus a drone.


À la Carte

5h, 8h, 12h or more… you can choose the length of shoot which best suits you according to stages which you wish me to cover.
Due to higher demand in July and August only “First Quarter” and Full Moon” are available during that period.
I deliver photos in 15 days. After the wedding you will have the possibility to order books, prints, etc.

crescent-moon.jpg

"Crescent moon" is ideal to cover the ceremony/ies as well as the cocktail. The couple photos and the group photos can be made at the moment which seems to you more opportune.

first-quarter.jpg

Perfect solution to cover from "getting ready" up to the cocktail or from ceremony up to ball opening. This expression includes the possibility of accomplishing an engagement shooting before big day or a couple shooting after big day so you can celebrate with your guests.

full-moon.jpg

12 hours of reporting to cover your whole marriage + an engagement shooting before big day or a couple shooting after big day. Also includes a slideshow with the best photos of the day during dinner.
