Before the wedding

What do the packages include?

All the packages include: 
~Continuous  photography coverage from ceremony till the end of reception, going through the congratulations post ceremony, the couple’s portrait session and the guests and family group pictures. 
~ Our meetings (telephone, Skype or in person) and accompaniment through the timeline planning.

~A USB key with all the images in High and Screen resolution.  
*Possibility to add different options of albums.

How would you describe your style?

You can find detailed info on my style and approach here, but in a nutshell, I imbue to my work a cinematic aesthetic style. When it comes to the coverage, I do work with a non intrusive photojournalism approach during the major part of the day, and a combination of both spontaneous and more staged pictures during segments like the portrait session.
I am not a fan of how the industry is often divided between “dark & moody” and “light & airy”– I prefer raw, timeless photography that doesn’t fit in one box. I don’t to lean into any trends so your photos look dated in 10 years. 
Two little notes: I do not deliver raw photos, and I do  not do photo montage nor  sales on the wedding day. Choosing me as your photographer means you like and feel connected with my photography style.

When It is best to book?

The earlier, the more possibilities you have to find your date available. But it also depends on the season when you get married and your  location.
Get in touch to check on availability your date.

What languages do you speak?

I speak and can guide my couples in english, french, spanish and swedish

How do we book?

First step is  sending me a little message via  contact page and tell me a bit about your project. Once I have received it,  we can set up a coffee date,  zoom meeting, or phone call, so we can get to know each other.  
Then the  booking process passes by the signature of a contract, and a  30% retainer from the total amount that is due along with the contract signature and secures your date. Once both requirements are completed, your date is officially booked for you and closed to any new request.
The remaining amount is due after the wedding day before the delivery of the photos.

Do you do engagement sessions?

Mais oui!, Check this out out for more info!

Wedding's couple session in Palais Saint Georges, Rennes.

Where are you located? Do you travel and do destination weddings?

I am based in Brittany, concretely in Rennes, the region of Ile et Vilaine, and I travel all around France. Though I currently service Rennes, all Brittany, pays de la Loire, Paris, and all FRANCE,  I absolutely love destination weddings, so If that is your case, do not hesitate to shot me a message!
I have been lucky enough to shoot weddings all across the Sweden where I lived 6 years, as well as several different countries in Europe. Traveling remains one of my favourite parts of my job. Get in touch to know about travel quotes.

Do you do elopements? And intimate weddings?

Of course yes!!! I love elopements!!! It is called fugue amoureuse in french and  I deeply enjoy working in this context where we are more free on schedule, by our own, and able to do whatever we want!. I have actually been witness for some of my eloping couples in the past! And I absolutely love as well intimate weddings and petit comité love celebration events!!
An elopement in France is an excellent idea looking at the outstanding fairytale locations, and castles here. For elopements in France, I have as well a special custom package. 
If you are eloping in France, let me know where and I can provide you a quote!

What equipement do you use?

I use Full frame Canon cameras and a wide range of Canon’s professional L series lenses. I am always equipped with two bodies and a variety of different focal range lenses both fix and zoom. This lets me have every possible distance covered  in every scene.  
It lets me have as well backup if a lens or a camera falls or gets damaged. 

Are we meeting several times before the wedding?

Yes, we will have a first encounter to know a bit each other and go together through the details of the wedding a bit more in depth. We can do it around a coffee in Rennes and its peripheries. And if you do not have this option, I propose a  zoom/skype/facetime/whatsapp/old fashioned phone call. 
And then few days before the wedding, I like to have a second one to review the wedding and shooting timeline and schedule going through any possible changes and ultimating the last details. And during the big day of course,  I will be there with my couple to handle any possible last minute change of course.

Can you help us with our day-of timeline?

I love helping couples with their timeline. When we talk, we will go through your taste, preferences and priorities. I don’t want to spend an hour taking portraits if you’d rather be with your guests, and likewise, if portraits are your priority, I want to make sure we have enough time for them while still being present with your friends and family. 

Do you do engagement sessions?

Mais oui!, Check this out out for more info!

During the wedding

How do you work during the wedding day?

I remain the most discreet possible. And as for flash, I do not bring it into ceremonies, unless is absolutely unavoidable. I work with natural light the most as possible and I do bring a flash just to certain indoors and wedding receptions/dance taking it out just when it’s needed.

What if it rains?

All ok! I will do the shooting no matter the weather, but in this case I will advise you on what is the best to do in the couple session and the group pictures segment with family and guests. But on a personal note, rain is not that bad!! you can get really creative with umbrellas and pictures turn out equally beautiful!Stroll through

Are we doing group pictures?

Needless to say that yes!, . Usually I do with the closest ones of each family, then closest all together, then we enlarge a bit the picture extending to more relatives upon the choice of the couple cousins, witnesses, friends etc. For each, I like to take a classical one and a more funny one where I implement my techniques to make granny and/or serious uncle John give their best at it. If the space allows, I like take one big team photo with all the guests.

After the wedding

How many images will we receive?

That depends on the wedding package and the coverage time. But the wedding collections range from 400-800 fully edited digital images

Do you edit the photos?

Post-processing has a major importance in my workflow, just as important as compositing the picture and handling light on shooting.  I work hard to ensure that every image meets my artistic standard and has my signature look.
 I don’t do however any body transformations.

When/how do we get the pics?

In 3-4 weeks maximum from the wedding you will have your private gallery. All the packages include a private gallery online. The collection will be there high end edited ready to be downloaded. All images will be in both High Resolution for printing purposes and screen resolution for sharing and social media purposes.

Can our guest download the images and buy prints?

Yes, The gallery will be password protected and you will be able to share the link with your loved ones giving them the password.purposes. And yes, your guests and you will be able to download the digital files, and order physical prints. They will have access to this service through the gallery.

Do you offer albums and prints?

I’m a big believer in printing and displaying your images in physical supports. I do offer beautiful linen / ladder albums. In one of the packages is included, and for the rest can be ordered ” a la carte”. Get in touch to see fully detailed brochure on packages and albums.

Couple session, Liding´¨ö, Sweden.

How long does the album take to be ready?

We can count with around one month. This involves the communication between us for the layout it and the preparation of the files to be sent to the printer. 

Can we take part in the elaboration of the album?

of course! will do it together. First you select the images you want and I do the layout. Then you will validate or request modifications. Once the modifications done, once finished and validated by you, is ready to send to the printing factory.
