With words now
Where do you work ?
As a Wedding photographer in France, I’m based in Paris, but i only shoot 50% on my weddings in this area. The others are mostly in Provence, French Riviera, Burgundy, Perigord, Brittany and sometimes worldwide. Wherever you will get married, i will follow you, I love discover news places.
How do you work ?
The bad photographer has a cameras, he clics the button but it’s a bad photographer, you know. The good photogrpahe, has a camera too, he clics the button to but the difference is he’s a good photographer.
To be serious, I make photo report. It means that I take pictures on the fly, nothing is staged. Only real moments. I’m not a director, i consider that the best pictures are the ones that contains authentic moments, which are spontaneous and natural. This is the only way to have your own personal pictures, not the same than the previous wedding.
For exemple I won’t stage anything, or even asking for a pose during preps, ceremony, and reception. If this is what you want, the best you have to do is close this tab and find somebody else.
The most important is to tell your story, the story of your wedding, to tell things as they really happen. I have to catch every moment, every detail, every emotion. I do that in an artistic way : real moment in a beautiful frame.
Of course, if you want we can have portraits sessions, with family, bridal party…
How long do you stay ?
I come at preps and I’m with you until late, very late. Most of time until champagne glasses are starting “to dance”. Every moment needs to be on the pictures. A wedding is much more that only a ceremony. That’s why i can’t work with hours based packages. It’s always different.
Do you work alone ?
Yes. the person who is writing these words is the same than the one who is behind his camera. Of course if you want I can come with a second shooter or an assistant.
Will we get HD files and copy rights ?
Yes. Every single picture will be manually post processed (colors, skin tones, contrasts, black and white….). It represents between 400 and 800 pictures according to your wedding (number of guest…). The pictures will be delivered to you on an luxury USB drive and on a personal web gallery password protected. Their resolution will be at least compliant for 60×40 cm prints.
The pictures you will get will be 100% free of copy right. You can share them to anybody, on social medias too, and use them for personal purpose as you like.
What is you gear ?
I use only black cameras. Better than green or yellow.
When will we get the picture
Less than 15 days after the wedding you will received your password to connect to the web gallery. Then you will get fews days later the USB drive with HD files sent you by airmail.
Will we get an album ?
Of course I can do that. Watching pictures printed on quality payer is much more enjoyable than on a screen. I work with high end album manufacturers and I can propose you several options from 30×20 album to 40×30 genuine leather covered family pack.
Wedding : from 2000 € (always include entire day coverage and HD post processed files)
