Hello I'm Benjamin. I live in France, near Paris, but work everywhere. I'm married and father of 2 young teenagers.
I love weddings, I love brides and grooms. More than photography maybe. One of my friend has invented a word for me : "mariageophile", a french neologism that means literally crazy about weddings. I love weddings, but I hate clichés and I try sometime to be disrespectful about those clichés. You don't want that classic portrait front of flowers, the hands with rings close up ? Great, I don't make these kind on things. The only thing that matters is telling you your story in a contemporary manner, highlighting great and little moments that make your wedding unique. I try to shot wedding like I would do for street photography : I'm waiting for the good moment, the good light, the good composition.
I only shot weddings, 30-35 per year. I just shoot my 100th wedding in september 2014.
Remember : Beautiful persons make beautiful stories !
