SUMMARY

Photography for me is more than just work. It’s my life, passion and art. My way of seeing the world.
My photography is instinctive and sensory.

I am a photographer specializing in portraiture, elopements, weddings and destination weddings in France. I work with couples from all over the world to photograph weddings in Loire Valley, Bretagne, Provence and throughout France.
With years of experience photographing weddings both big and small, from the grandest moments to the smallest details, I love telling stories through my lens.

Using professional digital cameras and traditional film cameras, I create natural, elegant, and timeless images to tell each couple’s story. With a special attention to details, composition and natural light, I take the time to craft images that tell a story, trigger a memory and evoke emotion.

With a high sensitivity, I have developed an artistic sensibility which allows me to be truly present on the wedding day, to put my subjects at ease in front of the camera, and to document the essence of each moment — a valuable asset in crafting genuinely beautiful wedding images.

I love working with clients who share a love for natural light, sentimental touches, meaningful details, and a simple, natural and elegant aesthetic.

My approach is detail oriented, romantic, classic and timeless as opposed to succumbing to fleeting trends. The same applies to the processing style. I develop each image individually with care, leaving room as much for the subtlety of color as the timeless charm of the black and white grain. Because I want your photographs to be timeless, even in 10 or 25 years.

Your wedding will be unique and offers an opportunity for your story to be told. You express through your wedding not only your style and personality, but also what is important to you, and I want to showcase that.
A wedding is a day filled with love, beauty and magic. I want to capture that in an detailed, authentic and elegant way, to create modern and artistic, yet polished and timeless photographs. I strive for the perfect combination of timeless elegance and natural beauty. I strike the perfect balance between candid and staged photographs.

I want you to be able to live or relive each moment, and to share all of them with your loved ones. My goal is to provide you beautiful, emotional and authentic memories which will be treasured for years to come.

Based in Loire Valley and Brittany, I cover elopements, weddings and destination weddings all over France for couples from all over the world.

My work is featured on national and international blogs such as Style Me Pretty and La Mariée Aux Pieds Nus. I am also a member of Style Me Pretty Little Black Book.
