Legend has it…
Your first dance takes place on your wedding day
But I believe the dancing begins the moment planning takes flight.
I offer a simple process, woven with magic.
BEFORE THE WEDDING
It all begins with the contact page. Then, we'll get to know each other via a phone call, a Skype or simply email. I want to know everything you envision about your wedding day, so I can prepare fully to capture what's most important for YOU (and that's very different from one couple to another). A month before the day, I'll send you a little questionnaire asking about times and locations. And a day before, I'll call you to checkup eveything, with the forecast in mind as well.
ON THE DAY
I. Shoot. Everything. All with a nimble camera in my hand…
I’m as invisible as possible, while capturing – without interrupting.
Your truth – Your raw emotion – You.
AFTER THE DAY
You’ll receive all your thoughtfully edited images within 6 weeks.
I edit each of your photographs by hand, polishing each individually. Memory albums arrive within 6 - 8 weeks and heirloom albums arrive within 5 month.

Frequently asked questions
• Why should we hire you as our wedding photographer?
Why should I be your wedding photographer? Because once we start working together, you'll never have to worry about your wedding photography ever again. If you're looking for a photographer that will capture the whole atmosphere of your day, and not just details and portraits, I will be the perfect match for you. I tend to find magic in ordinary moments, in the gentle touches and crisp textures. Light streaming through clouds, your looks – and theirs. The ambiance of your love in moments when you’re simply being. I’m invisible, yet available whenever you need me. While you’re adorned with jewels or heartily laughing with family. When they lock eyes with you from across the room...Like a lighthouse in the storm, I’m here for you. I have your solutions on the off-chance things veer from the plan, and the words to lighten your mind if it begins feeling full.
• Do you work with a second shooter?
It depends on the option you choose, but if you do, I have a wide network of second shooters from all over the world, all highly qualified and professional.
• Do you have insurance?
Yes, I do.
• How long have you been in business?
I started wedding photography in 2013, I had my first publication in 2014 and my first international award in 2015. Since then, I've shot more than 100 weddings in many countries and my love has grown even bigger and bigger eveytime I shot a new amazing couple!
• Are payment plans available?
Yes, payment plans are available, and you can pay every month until your wedding date.
• We're planning a wedding from abroad, do you have any vendor recommendations?
Yes, I do! When we start working together, I send you a full list of vendors for any need you may have, all seasoned and fully English speaking And if you need any local vendor, I can help you with that as well!
• Do you have any tips for the day?
As a matter of fact, I have a whole guide filled with tips for the day! Timeline, beauty tips, how to get the best pictures possible, I cover everything and it will be mailed directly into your mailbox, so you can read it anytime you need!
• When is payment due?
I ask for a 30% down payment when signing our contract, and the rest is due on the day of the wedding. I accept payments via all major credit cards, wire transfer or PayPal.
• Can my guests take pictures?
Absolutely! I simply ask eveyone to not take pictures when you walk down the aisle, as this is the only moment when guests pictures may disrupt the day and interfere with my work. Other than that, they are more than welcome to take pictures!
• When is the best time for you to arrive?
It depends on the number of hours you have chosen. If you'd like me to be here when you're getting ready, it's best if I arrive when your makeup is almost done, and before you put your dress on. If you don't want the getting readies, I'll arrive about 15 to 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony.
• What is a first look?
A first look is the perfect opportunity to discover each other in an intimate location, just the two of you. It differs from grand entrances at your ceremony location and is perfect for couples who would like a moment alone before the ceremony. Generally, I will choose the perfect location depending on your wedding venue, and I will organize a moment with just the two of you and me taking pictures of this very emotional moment. We can do a first look with your fiancé, your dad, or any other person very dear to your heart.
• Will you eat at our wedding?
Yes, please plan according to your vendors when you contact your caterer with the final number of persons present. The photographer, the videographer, the DJ, the band and any other vendor present for lunch or dinner will need to eat.
• What happens if the weather is bad?
No matter how bad the weather may be, I've got your back. My camera and my lenses are 100% waterproof, my camera bag is weather resistant, and all my memory cards are protected in a special case made for divers. This is also true for wind (especially in desertic areas where there is a lot of sand blowing around), harsh sun, snow and storms. Whatever the weather may be on your wedding day, my images won't be hurt in any way and I've got you 100%. As for couples pictures, you can rest assured that we will find a way to make it work. Days with continuous rain are pretty rare, so we will always find a little moment to run outside and enjoy the dryer atmosphere. And if it's a stormy day, we'll simply shoot inside, I can assure you that I will find a cute little place to create amazing couples pictures!
• How long does it take to deliver the gallery, the USB and the album?
The post-processing of your pictures will take 4 to 8 weeks, and you will receive your gallery within that timeframe. After you have seen your pictures, I will ask you to choose the pictures for your album and your prints. Once I have received your selection, there will be a 3 weeks delay before you will receive your USB, a 6 weeks delay to receive your Memory Album and/or a 4 months delay to receive your Heirloom Album.
• Will I be able to share the gallery with friends and family?
Yes, absolutely. You will be able to share your gallery to your heart's content, and your guests will even be able to order prints and downloads directly from the online gallery, avoiding you the hassle to organize everything.
• How many images will be included?
It's hard to give a specific number of images delivered, but for a 6 hours coverage, you will receive at least 200, for 9 hours, 400 and for 12 hours, 600 images.
• Do you edit all your pictures?
I cull them first, then I edit my selection by hand. Your photographs are edited and prepared while I listen to soft, peaceful folk songs. This offers my editing style a gentle intricacy that translates to your final gallery of finessed imagery.
• What if we want to order extra prints or albums?
Your pictures will first be delivered in an online gallery with a built-in boutique where you can see, choose and order any wall arts, albums and gift prints you'd like. You can also share this gallery with your family and friends so they can order their prints as well, without having the hassle to contact you first.
