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 friends 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 sometimes to be disrespectful about those clichés. You don't want that classic portrait in front of flowers, the hands with rings close up? Great, I don't make these kinds of 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 a 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 shot my 100th wedding in 2014.
Remember: Beautiful persons make beautiful stories!
