SECOND SHOOTER

DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES, MORE PHOTOS

You know how busy weddings are, so having two photographers can make your day run more smoothly. While the main photographer focuses on capturing key moments, the second photographer can capture parallel events, such as guests' reactions during the ceremony. This gives you a greater number of images from different angles and perspectives, offering invaluable breadth and depth to your photographs.

In the rare event of a technical problem with the equipment, having a second photographer adds an extra layer of security. With two sets of equipment and two professionals capturing the most important moments, you're protected against the loss of any memories due to unforeseen equipment malfunctions.

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

BUILD RELATIONSHIP

A pre-wedding photo session allows us to bond and get to know each other. The more comfortable you are with me, the more natural and relaxed you'll appear, which will translate into better photographs.

TRIAL SESSION FOR THE WEDDING DAY

Think of this session as a rehearsal before the wedding. It's an opportunity to fine-tune your preferences and for me to find out how you interact as a couple. This knowledge is invaluable in ensuring smooth and effective photography on your wedding day.

GET COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA

Many people are not used to being photographed professionally. A pre-wedding photo session can help ease camera shyness and get you used to being in the spotlight.

Sessions last about 1h30
I guarantee a minimum of 50 photos

HIGH-END PHOTO ALBUM

INVEST IN YOUR MEMORIES;

Holding your wedding photographs in your hands adds a dimension to your images that digital copies simply can't replicate. Wedding albums are an essential keepsake that allow couples to relive the memories of their big day through a collection of images.

The albums I offer are built to last. I use high-quality materials for both the cover and the inside pages. Your photographs are printed on archival, degradation-resistant paper, ensuring that the colors and clarity of the images will remain intact over time.

An investment in a professionally produced wedding album is an investment in memories that will last a lifetime.

"YOUR PROFESSIONALISM AND KINDNESS ARE BEYOND REPROACH."

Catherine & Mathieu, 2022

Q

My style of photography is a mix between documentary and art. I capture the raw, spontaneous moments that occur naturally throughout your special day, while bringing a level of sophistication and romance to each image. The use of natural light and careful composition characterize my work. The result is luminous, timeless photographs that are both intimate and elegant.


Understanding your vision

To ensure that my style aligns with the romantic and sophisticated theme of your wedding, I will consult with you to fully understand your vision and preferences. I also visit the venue to familiarize myself with the lighting and décor features. My goal is to create a coherent narrative of your wedding, highlighting the grandeur and beauty of the day.

Q

To exceed your expectations, I'm counting on my presence and dedication on your wedding day, but in reality, it all starts now. From the moment you sign the contract, you'll be immersed in a simple, step-by-step process, where I'll make sure you're well taken care of and feel confident. During this process, we stay in touch, I answer your questions and share my advice. 

On the big day, I start my work day by capturing the anticipation of your wedding preparations. My energy sets the mood - calm and focused when necessary, but also spirited to reflect the excitement in the room. During the ceremony, my presence is discreet but dynamic. If need be, I'll hand you a handkerchief when a tear rolls down your cheek, or straighten your bow tie ;) It's these little touches that make my service the best and unique.

The joy I feel in my work is evident and reflects the happiness of your special day, contributing positively to your overall experience.


Q

Light and composition are the fundamental elements of photography. I approach them with technical expertise and artistic sensitivity to create timeless images.

Working with light:


I use natural light whenever possible, as it gives photos a soft, organic quality. I know how to find the most flattering angles and the best times of day to photograph you in the best possible light. 

Mastering composition


In my photography, composition is essential to capture not only the subject, but also the story and atmosphere of the location and your special day. Each image is carefully considered. I balance the elements of the scene to catch the viewer's eye, while framing my subjects to create depth and drama in my images.

Environmental Context:


I believe that your wedding décor plays an important role in the story of your love. That's why I meticulously compose my photos to incorporate the grandeur and detail of your chosen venue, placing you in the luxury and elegance that surrounds you.

Q

Capturing spontaneous moments is one of the most beautiful aspects of wedding photography; these natural expressions and interactions will be part of your most beautiful memories.

Over the years I've learned to observe, which allows me to anticipate moments before they happen. I can predict when an important moment is about to happen. I'm attentive yet unobtrusive, always keeping my senses attuned to the environment and emotions around me. Observation is more than just looking; it's about understanding the atmosphere of the wedding, the dynamics between people and recognizing the subtle clues that foreshadow the moments to come. I constantly scan the room, noting the laughter emanating from a group or the silent exchanges between family members. It's thanks to this focused observation that I can position myself strategically to capture a precious, spontaneous moment without disrupting it.

Q

On your wedding day, it's not just about capturing beautiful images, it's also about creating a friendly, reassuring atmosphere that allows you to be as authentic as possible. My clients have often told me that my energy, passion and ever-present smile contributed greatly to their comfort and confidence throughout the day.

With confidence


My energy soothes any fears you may have. My clients have often told me that my enthusiasm for their wedding and my dedication to capturing their love story made them feel more relaxed and confident in my skills. This confidence translates into more organic and spontaneous photos, as you're less preoccupied with the camera and more immersed in the magic of your day.

My good humor and energy are essential elements of my service. It's this passion and vitality that allows me to bring out the best in your wedding photos, capturing the very essence of your celebration.

Q

Absolutely! I'd be more than happy to help you plan your wedding day to ensure that all the key moments are captured with the beauty and emotion they deserve. It's even a necessary task for me, as I need to be well prepared for your wedding day.

Some time before the big day, I'll send you a questionnaire which, once completed, will enable me to understand how the day will unfold and what important events you absolutely want to immortalize. Based on the information in the questionnaire, I'll draw up a photography schedule that fits in with your whole day. This will include time for preparations, the ceremony, family and bridal party portraits, and couple portraits.

With experience, I've learned to balance a well-planned schedule with the flexibility to adapt to the dynamics of the day. I strive to work efficiently to make the most of the time allotted for photos, especially under the golden rays of the late-day sun, if your schedule permits.

I'll also coordinate with other service vendors, especially your wedding planner, to make sure we're all on the same page.
