Oise wedding and elopement photography by Jean-Baptiste Quillien of Hauts-de-France

After studying business and marketing, I started photography a dozen years ago. I very quickly turned to the portrait for its relational and human side. I'm very lucky, it's to do the job that I really love ... But even more, I have a great chance to do the best job in the world. Asking people to kiss each other all day in beautiful places with magical light, to participate in the euphoria of this moment, to laugh, to move me with the bride and groom, the guests, and to find their smiles on their faces when they discover their photos… A passion for serving emotions.

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way.

So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
