Occitanie and Tarn wedding photography by Loic Bourniquel of France

Hi, I'm Loïc Bourniquel from the south of France. I've been a wedding photographer for 5 years. I did communication studies then I started to travel the world: England, Slovakia, Poland, and Canada. I used to have different jobs in each country in order to make friends and understand the way of life in each place. For most, I discovered photography during my travels so I started exploring this side of my creativity. Then I moved back to the south of France and became a manager in an Irish pub for 8 years. It was a great experience as well, organize concerts, and different kinds of events, meet people, create a good atmosphere with the staff and our clients ... After that I wanted to make my passion a job, so I became a pro photographer. In the beginning, I wasn't really interested in the wedding because of the traditional images I had in my mind, but I tried and I found a totally different experience than I expected. A much better one. Photographing emotions, funny moment,s or strong ones. Photographing humanity with total freedom and make great and original pictures was a total privilege. Now I m a wedding photographer but I do a bit of portraits and street photography for myself. I would say that my style is photojournalist/storyteller. But I still do a few nice portraits for couples. I m not only a photographer I'm also a wedding helper. I always do my best for the couples to make sure they have a great and memorable wedding. I capture relationships, small and big moments, emotions, love, and everything I find interesting. I have a lot of wittiness I love funny moment or scene. Hope I'll meet you soon Regards Loïc [Albi Wedding Photographer]

Journalist and reporter-professional photographer for ten years, touches all of communication, graphics and multimedia, I define myself today as a sensor of emotions, whether by the clichés that I realize or by the words that slide under my fingers. Each wedding photography that I make is for me a moment that I capture as well with my eyes as with my heart I appreciate above all the energy that emanates from human relationships. The one that makes us all vibrate, cry, stress, hope or laugh. An energy and multiple emotions that we meet on the day of her marriage. For a long time, I thought this statement was overrated. Then I got married myself. I lived the experience from the inside. And there, I understood. I understood what some people call "The most beautiful day of your life". Still, I'm a dad of a wonderful little girl. For me, the most beautiful moment I could live was his birth. When I got married, I realized we could do as well, but longer. A moment that lasts hours and hours; we have the feeling that he will never stop. In my case, it lasted two days. A weekend that I savored as much as I could so much energy and love were huge. My wife and I often dream of going back. Relive, once again, all that people who love you have to offer you: their personality, their humor, their kindness, their madness, their tenderness. We try to engrave all these moments in our mind hoping never to forget them. If you read this, it's because you too have this ambition. You will want to remember the beautiful story you are going to live that day. That's good, I'm here for that ;-). [Haut-Rhin Wedding Photographer]

As a child, I can see myself leafing through the photo albums of my parents, my grandparents, with this recurring question: “Who’s that?” Then came: “Where was it?” “What were you doing?” … And very often the answer was vague, crowded out, for lack of time, of memory perhaps. This situation was super frustrating for the child I was, I wanted to know the story of this photo, of this moment. Later, but long before it became my job, that I didn’t even know it was a job, I documented, with my Minolta, my vacations and family reunions, the weddings of my cousins ​​… Already as a teenager, I understood that it was more important for me to remember all these shared moments, to tell the story of these moments, more than to have a nice group photo posed. This photo says nothing. Which years after brings us only the memory of the people present that day. To see how much we have changed and by the way that fashion has damn evolved! I wanted to print the memories that I had in my memory. Like my grandmother’s smile when she saw us coming from behind the kitchen window. We were covered in mud and hungry, after a beautiful afternoon playing in the puddles. At those times, my grandmother’s smile was very different from the portraits of her that I found in her photo album. It was during this period that I started painting, to add to the portraits I painted the expressions of my memories. Finally, I studied communication. For a few years, I managed the communication department of a large community until this meeting that would change everything. That of a photographer I had hired to create the visuals for a campaign. I found in his images, his approach, everything that I had been looking for for years. Very quickly, I accompanied him on his wedding reports. It was almost a renaissance for me. I finally found my way. I discovered a job that had obsessed me all my youth, without ever having imagined that it really existed. For two years he taught me photography. The technique, no question of using the fully automatic mode of my new reflex. Understand the light. Manage the composition and wait for the moment. AND ME HERE!

Since the birth of my son in 2010, the portrait fascinates me, the beauty of a face, the harmony of a silhouette ... I marvel at the daily diversity of our bodies and our faces. A few years later, with the arrival of my daughter, this quest for aesthetics has evolved. I understood that an image was nothing without an intention, a laugh, a feeling ... This is how the family has become my greatest source of inspiration. I feel today a deep joy to give you my vision of the small daily happiness, as great moments of life! In short, I found what really matters. [La Rochelle Wedding Photographer]

Paris wedding and elopement photography by Charline Eberhardt of France

I discovered photography as a little girl. It has always been a part of our life to be taken in pictures and create memories that last forever. When I was 18, my parents offered my 1st camera of my own. I tried to use it the best I could but didn't really take the time to go further. In 2009, I started to work at Sony, in marketing and discovered the world of photographers that reminded me how much I loved it. I started to ask a lot of questions and got interested in technology & techniques. In 2013, I have decided to quit everything and leave for around the World trip. 2 years on my own, with my backpack and a camera, to encounter as many people as possible and take pictures to see if I really like it as a job. And guess what? When I came back, I have decided to take the leap and I founded my company in 2016. After not even a year doing this job, I started to shoot weddings and completely fell in love with it. All the emotions, the kind looks, the hugs, the love. I shoot 15 to 22 weddings per year. So in only 3 seasons, I have already shot 50 weddings and I can't wait for the next year to start all over again. Now you know me a little bit more: I'm a travel addict, who loves taking photos and telling beautiful stories of life through my pictures. I want to meet you, to discover you, and to capture everything you feel with my camera. I’m completely addicted to smiles, happiness, close-knit families, crazy couples, and people who want to enjoy life. I am based in Biarritz but I travel everywhere for my work, in France but also Worldwide. Take me for my next adventure with you, with a great sound of your favorite music in the ears.

Marseille wedding and elopement photography by Daniel Pelcat of Bouches-du-Rhone, PACA, France

It was at the wedding of a family member that I was asked for the first time as a photographer. This experience was so rich in emotions I chose to make my profession. Marriage is a special day unforgettable, it is above all a day of love and sharing with family, friends, relatives. I want to live and share moments of happiness with you and revive through my images. With generosity and passion, I shall return what you give me during the day with a look, a smile, an attitude. Attentive and discreet, will be a witness to these fragile and magical moments that weave this day. With careful attention and a shared complicity, I capture the most intense moments, wildest, funniest, too, and even more, secrets sometimes to tell your story. Because my photos are primarily your story, the story of your love. As author-photographer, I try above all to bring a special touch to my images to go beyond traditional stereotypes of the wedding photo. The bashful look, full of tenderness and emotion that I ask your union, drives me to work in a very personal way to showcase the essence of this day. Every wedding is unique, and as a wedding photographer, I would bring you originality and authenticity in my pictures, so that they become and remain, a reflection of your love. My wedding photo's approach is one of photojournalism. I try to capture every moment of emotion or intensity. Humor, tenderness, and poetry are the essential elements of this day which will give a special resonance to my images. It is a personal and sensitive look what I propose, a look and a modern and elegant style. I like to meet the bride and groom before the day of the event to get acquainted and discuss their desires, their expectations. From that moment, the complicity is created. This preparation is important for me to anticipate the completion and already start my creative approach to suit your personality. I usually work alone but on some occasions and to meet the demand, I may be accompanied by an assistant. I travel in the Provence region Cote d'Azur, in France and abroad.

Marseille wedding photography by Colas Declercq - WPJA of France Bouches-du-Rhone PACA

My name is Colas… like Nicolas, without the « N ». Don’t ask me why it’s just like that! I’m a wedding photographer (as you might have gathered) and above all, I’m curious and passionate about many things. I travel a lot and have lived abroad for many years. These multiple destinations have brought me a lot. Getting to know people, being interested in their culture, their history. Simply sharing and exchanging with them. Escaping, feeling free and being fully aware of these sensations. Enjoying the little things in life, this is what motivates me every day. And all these interactions help me seize the moments that I’ve managed to capture in pictures. Each and every shoot, be it during a wedding, a couple or family session, is fueled with the same passion. Blending creativity and authenticity, I’ll deliver natural and genuine photos of you and your emotions. On a daily basis, you’ll find me in a calm tree-filled district of Marseille, in Provence. I live with my life partner, my greatest support, Liza. And over the last few years, we’ve shared another beautiful adventure together: our daughter Miss K. Why I choose wedding photography? Before talking about wedding photography, let’s talk about photography. You could say it actually came to find me, through obligation, when I was studying History of Art. I needed to carry out a number of reproductions for my research papers and couldn’t bear the old photocopy machine in the archives room which was constantly needing to be fixed. So I bought a digital camera and that was a revelation. I trained by myself whilst pursuing my studies. Then, after meeting influential and helpful people, I was able to progress rapidly. I then joined a regional newspaper team. Everything was going well when one day, a photographer friend of mine asked me to replace her on a wedding shoot. She was ill and had no other solution. It was the beginning of a beautiful adventure, a learning path filled with emotions, an experience that goes on to this day. My Philosophy: Bringing you an exceptional photographic documentary of your wedding is my goal. Being first and foremost a photographic-reporter, my aim is to capture all the key moments during a wedding in a natural and creative way. These emotions will thus be treasured and serve to relive this special day and share it with your friends and family. During a wedding, it is actually the bride and groom that MAKE the photos. The final outcome of my work it intrinsically linked to their state of mine. Which is why I always accompany you discreetly, yet with a smile. It is important that I should know you but also take time to meet you first. Knowing what your wishes are but also what you don’t want, is essential. We need to build a partnership fully based on trust. A wedding is actually a team job. As much as you need ME to capture these moments, I also need YOU to play the game so as to bring out the best of my creativity in the photos. Your expectations must be met. And on your special day, I often become much more than just your wedding photographer. Pressure can be such that sometimes, brides turn to me when they can’t find an answer to a question. They confide in me in this moment of doubt. It is therefore essential that we work together, hand in hand, so I can guarantee you the most beautiful souvenirs of your wedding. So you can simply treasure the magic of your special day. In order to dedicate myself fully to each wedding, I only take a limited number of weddings every year. You all matter immensely to me. And it is essential that I can be there for each bride and groom with the same availability and energy. If my state of mind and work ethos resonates with you, and should you wish to find out more, I’d be delighted to hear from you. I look forward to hearing from you and getting to meet you here under the Provençal blue sky. And if you still have trouble remembering my name, just think of the old children’s song : « Fais dodo Colas mon p’tit frère… » [Marseille Wedding Photographer]

Photo of Scotland wedding and elopement photographer Lukas Powroziewicz

Welcome to Catching the Moments Photography. My name is Lukas. I describe my style in three words I would say natural, relaxed and unobtrusive. Candid moments, real emotions and reactions, tiny details you've planned for months, atmosphere, love, laughter and tears. I aim to record your wedding day as it happens, without posing or arranging anything, and most importantly without getting in your way. I believe every wedding is unique and should be treated that way. The thing is, the photos are about the day, not the other way around. Your wedding day, without directing or influencing the events. I won’t boss you around lining up for endless group shots. Instead, I will let you enjoy your wedding day with your friends and family. I won’t get in the way or tell you what to do. Instead, I will discreetly accompany you throughout the day. If that sounds like something you’re after, then you’ve come to the right place. COVERING WEDDINGS THROUGHOUT THE UK AND ABROAD Each year I shoot weddings all over Scotland and the rest of the UK, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, St Andrews, Aberdeen, the North of England and London, to name just a few.

Carlos Porfírio is a Lisbon-based documentary-style wedding and elopement photographer. Carlos serves couples getting married all around Portugal as a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association - WPJA.

I was born in Luanda, Africa, and I lived there until I was 10 years old, a time when I moved to Portugal. I've started my career working as a designer and web designer in an advertising company, but quickly I noticed that I was missing a very important part of my nature - to be connected to people and all the emotions related. I then studied the direction of photography and worked for a while in TV, fiction, advertising, as well as contributing as a freelancer photographer in different agencies. Since then, I've been connected and inspired by different people, places, and cultures, by a simple smile, a color, or just with mother nature in its state of the art. I work professionally in the wedding industry for more than 12 years, on behalf of Laranja Metade [Half Orange] brand, as a parallelism to those looking for their soul mate (the half part). In the past years more as Destination Wedding Photographer. I want to be true and honest when I document a wedding. To observe and write creatively all the feelings related to the key and unexpected moments, in a natural way. I will be honoured to embrace this journey with you. [Lisbon Wedding Photographer]

I trained and worked as a primary school teacher before working in FE and eventually made my way to where I am now, using my camera to pay the bills full time. I live in the North West of England with my wife Sally and our 3 children who are our pride and joy. Sally and I run the business together. Well, Sally runs it, I take the pictures. We pride ourselves in looking after our clients throughout the whole process and exceeding expectations. Sally also runs our sister company Smileomatic Photobooths which won the best wedding special touch (North West) at the 2018 Wedding Industry Awards. I’m passionate about making people happy through my photography. I’ve loved weddings ever since I started shooting them some 12 years ago because each and every wedding I shoot is unique. Not because of the flowers, the table decorations or the venues, but because of the people involved. The characters in a story that has yet to be written. Over the years I’ve come to realise that the images that are most important to people are those which can really rekindle feelings and emotions. And this applies to all photos, not just wedding photography. It’s my own experiences in life up to this point that makes me release the shutter when I do. And why what’s important to you, will also be important to me. [Lancashire Wedding Photographer]

My name is Gaelle and I am a professional wedding photographer with studies in Applied Arts (Nantes, France), Graphic Arts (Quimper, France) and a Diploma in Applied Photography (RMIT, Melbourne) under my belt. I am passionate about everything I do as a wedding photographer: from creating a great working rapport with my clients to ensure their special day is as relaxed and free-flowing as possible; to artfully capturing the pure emotions, small gestures and loving details of this day in the most natural and reflective way. In addition to my great passion for capturing life’s most beautiful moments on film, I proudly possess many years of experience and prestigious photography awards - both at home and abroad. My fervour for photography came to light when I was 15 years old and began experimenting with the process of developing photos in a dark room. In that moment, I discovered my passion for encapsulating real life in the art of film, a passion which only continued to grow as I did. I began my professional career within photography at the age of 21, where I worked as a photojournalist for Boston’s Canton Newspaper in the USA, acting as a mirror to the world. Aspiring to develop my technique and expertise within photography, I then furthered my studies at RMIT in Melbourne, Australia where I won two greatly prestigious awards for my work (Victorian Photography Student of the Year, 2001 - Gold and Silver awards). Highly-qualified and ready to take on the world, I returned to Europe and became actively involved in several projects in London with well known companies such as London Dungeons, Tesco and Vittel. I was later hired as a photo technician at Tapistry MM - a large lab in SoHo - where I was responsible for all C41 development, applying traditional darkroom techniques of colour and development. During this unforgettable time in my life, I rubbed shoulders and worked with the biggest names in fashion and music photography, including; Kevin Westemberg, Miles Aldridge, Kevin Westemberg, Derek Henderson and many others. This exhilarating career path has led me to the life I currently lead. After four years at home in France, working as a photo sales technician and dedicating myself to my family of five, I am now living out my dream job as a professional photographer. Still to this day nothing thrills me more than the challenge of capturing each individual couple’s special day in the most organic and unrestrained way. To be able to capture more than a picture - to capture a moment, a feeling, a thought - that is what I live for. [Melbourne Wedding Photographer]

I want to say that my style is photojournalistic with a touch of ineffable. I don't want to just capture the moment, I want to capture it from a unique perspective. I challenge myself to see and shoot each wedding differently because each wedding is uniquely its own. The venues and locations can be the same, but each couple is not. I really enjoy being able to document the story of my couples and capture all the emotions throughout the day/s by being in the background. My team tries to work like ninjas so that you can fully enjoy your day.

Lifestyle portrait of Paolo Blocar Italian Wedding and Elopement Photographer

I was born in Trieste, where I have always lived apart from some time in various Italian cities, but worshiping the sea and the climate of our city, my heart has always brought me back here. And that's where I met Lisa, many years ago. Then one day I asked for her hand ... and since then we share everything, even cameras. I followed Lisa in this project of hers and I believed in her from the beginning, also because I was lucky to have a photographer dad who taught me to love photography in all its forms and made me realize how important it is. Precisely for this reason, I wanted to put body and soul, together with Lisa, in this work; for me it is great to meet new people, living with them the emotions during the wedding day and tell the story through the images. I am a great lover of technology, cinema, film, and TV series: I would spend whole days looking at them without interruption and I always find inspiration for work. In my free time, I love being in the company of our family, chatting with friends even late and spending nice evenings with them filling our bellies with good food, at home or in some restaurant. I love traveling, visiting new places, experimenting with new things and tasting typical foods of the place: work permitting I would be perpetually traveling; from America to Oceania, from South Africa to Iceland, my dream is to be able to visit at least a small piece of every continent.

Some couples, as they begin planning for their weddings, might think that they are limited to the classic locations: churches, gardens, beaches, or even Las Vegas. But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more? An entirely different genre of wedding, so to speak, is the adventure wedding elopement. This concept...Read more

Hi Karol, I did not want to thank you again for the service performed at our wedding on June 25 in Cassis. You have fully responded to our needs, and the pictures speak for themselves ... They are simply the image of what we wanted, beautiful! We were not worried about the quality of the work done, but we know that this art is subjective, and that belongs to everyone to have his own judgment. You have completely met our expectations and our "Brief" departure. We appreciate the style of your photos, and the discretion that you could have throughout the preparations, the ceremony and the evening. I hope you have also enjoyed all day long Thank you for the little gift box! See you soon I hope Marine and Clement

Hi Stepan, It's hard to express in words how unbelievable your photos were! You really were fantastic :) Thank you so much for being our wedding photographer. Throughout the process, from discussing ideas with you in the months of preparation to choosing photos for our album afterwards – you've been a pleasure to work with. While our wedding only lasted one day, we are so glad that we'll have your photographs to remember it by for the rest of our lives. You are such an artist, and you truly captured the essence and feeling of the day. We've received so many compliments from our family and friends on the photographs, and we honestly can't stop looking through the album you made us! Thanks again for being such a special part of our wedding. Josef and I were thinking that it might be nice to have an extra session with you on our first anniversary. It wouldn't have to be the exact day, but we thought it would be cool to have photos from you one year later. Let me know what you think :) Thanks again! Isabel

We are so happy we hired you to photograph our wedding day. When we saw samples of your work on your website we were certain you could deliver what we wanted, but the actual results completely exceeded our expectations. We love the lighting, colours and framing in every photo. The candid shots during our wedding breakfast are wonderful, particularly during the speeches – they really take me back to those moments. We felt comfortable with you throughout the day and loved your ideas for a photo session roaming around Prague to make use of the stunning picturesque backgrounds. The city is so close to my heart and is captured forever as a main player of one of the most special days in my life. Speaking of special days – we gave birth to our beautiful daughter last November and would love to have you take some photos of her when we’re next in Prague! Keep up the good work. We will always recommend you to anyone who needs an approachable, competent, professional and fantastically talented photographer.
