– COUPLE & ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION IN RENNES –
A couple / engagement shooting session is a unique experience focused on your relationship.
The couple’s photo session is to create beautiful memories and translate into images what lays underneath your love bond, but also about enjoying a moment, enjoying an experience with laughter and emotions without a phone, without noise. A moment created simply to be enjoyed.

couple lifestyle / engagement photo session
PREPARATION OF THE SESSION
Before the shooting, we talk via mail / telephone , and go together through the shooting, I the locations, and the style as well as any special wish or specific information you may want me to know.
The choice of clothes is important, It is usually best to avoid extremely extravagant patterns and over saturated colours or neon options to not make the clothing compite on attention with you and the scenario. Unless you have a photographic project on clothing to highlight.
IN WHICH LOCATIONS TO DO THE COUPLE SESSION IN RENNES?
Outdoors is my absolute favourite workstation for photography sessions, and in Rennes we are lucky to count with an extraordinarily photogenic town, specially the old town.
Its urban scape is the perfect scenario to give to the photos the cinematic aesthetic and atmosphere I look for in every image.
Rennes is also the perfect place to do multiple of different session approaches from elegant and sophisticated with its monumental buildings, to casual and more lifestyle with its
cool colourful streets.
However there are plenty other locations more modern such as Beauregard area specific spots such as old factories not in use full of murals and graffiti offering as well awesome aesthetics.
My other favourite option to fo is the country side, go to get lost in a beautiful forest, in green fields, or by the water. I do not like to set limits and if you have any specific location you wished for the session, please, do not be shy and let me know!
HOW IS THE COUPLE SESSION DEVELOPED?
I care about the people to enjoy the shooting experience as much as I care about the final result. I prioritize to get comfortable and at ease. I run away from posy photos or over forced poses. I aim for naturalness at every moment and we are going to have fun!
Fortunately by experience, people who are not familiar with being in front of the lens take about 5 to 7 minutes to loose their camera awareness and feel relax (I promise, It is always like that ;))
I do create situations and actions where lots of nice and spontaneous poses will be naturally created, and sometimes hear me shooting ideas on how to place yourself to optimice composition. But you will have total space to be entirely who you are. I am inspired by your personality and attitudes to capture photos that reflect and highlight you.
When it comes to lighting, while indoors I may combine artificial lighting with ambience light, outdoors I go all the way with natural light being it the beautiful resource we have for photography. Mastering natural lighting requires accurate knowledge on how light behaves in every type of weather condition and hour of the day, in how it impacts in the model regarding lighting and shadowing and it impacts and bounces from the surfaces surrounding the model. It is my job to master it and find the most flattering light to create the most beautiful portait in every spot we shoot at.
About the duration of the session, I am not really on the clock, the sessions last between 45 and 75 minutes on average.
Throughout the shooting, if you have your own ideas of photos you always imagined for yourself, please do not be shy to propose them to me, I will love to know about them.
If for complicated weather reasons (huge rain), the session can not be done, it will be postponed regarding at our availability -yours and mine-.
All the files are sent both in:
– High resolution format, meant to printing purposes without any limit of copies, support(print, albums, etc) or size.
– Screen resolution format, for screen display..sharing and social media.
The reportages will contain a mix of colour and black and white images.
If you have any question, will be a pleasure to talk with you!
IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO A COUPLE PHOTO SESSION AND MATERNITY COMBINED?
Yes, you can combine a pregnancy photoshoot with a lifestyle couple shoot. I will apply the same codes as the lifestyle shot while highlighting your pregnancy with of course the future dad.
Pregnancy lifestyle sessions are also possible indoors at the warmth of your home.
PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER & RETOUCHER
While the photos must be excellent already in the raw file in camera, the editing, grading and final look of my images is an essential aspect of my work too. My work starts before the shooting, during the shooting, and equally important, after the shooting, with the selection and the edition. I treat my images both in Lightroom and in Photoshop depending on the requirement of the image.
I do not apply any standard filters, I edit my photos one by one treating the light by zones towards the feeling to be conveyed, the atmosphere, and the cinematic look I like to give to the images.
I do not smooth the skin with any blur actions that can be found in any editing app on the smartphones. I run away from plastic skin feel. I aim for naturalness.
I do occasionally erase certain unwanted aspects (scar, marks…) according to your expectations, but skin pixel level work is not applied here.
