I started shooting weddings in 2010, it was the beginning of my new documentary vision and wedding's reportages. It was for me as a revelation! Indeed, we can shoot weddings and document what's really happening during the whole day from the preparation to the dance floor. I love traveling and discovering different places. I shoot all around the world for my personal work with a medium format film camera (Bhutan, Oman, Nepal, Guatemala, Morocco, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, India, Indonesia and many other countries in Europe). Creating, discovering and meeting new people is very important to me. My approach is humanistic and passionate, that's why wedding documentary makes sense for me. [Lyon 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! WEDDING, ELOPEMENT AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER IN LYON Today, I have two children, 5 and 11 years old, with “this beautiful encounter” (and yes, it’s not just work that counts). I love to travel, to escape alone for a few days to discover new countries, but especially populations, their lifestyle, their customs … I hate people in such a hurry that they forget the essentials: Living. It is for this reason that I do not limit myself to Lyon to photograph you. To carry out your photo sessions and your wedding reports. You make me travel, I discover new landscapes, different lights and above all great people! [Lyon Wedding Photographer]

38 years old, 21 years in love with David, the man of my life. Together we designed Lina 11 years ago an adorable girl. The three of us love nature, travel, our cat and life. As a child, I wanted to be a ballet dancer; well yes with a tutu and a bun without a rebellious wick. A few years later, I realized that "little rat" was not for me (despite the passion). Rigor, discipline, and uniformity did not match my character. I am rather free, an anarchist and I like the difference. Thanks to the travels and the arrival of my daughter, photography was more and more present in our family. The device always to carry hands ready to immortalize our memories but also those of our friends. Finally testifying by the image of all these moments of everyday life, joy, love, friendship led me to social photography. (wedding report, family documentary ...) Passionate about adventure and discovery, the day of your wedding I would be for you an adventurer of strong emotions. Your life is an adventure. Let me freeze a fragment of it forever. No lies. No perfection. [Charente-Maritime Wedding Photographer]
Photographer based in Thonon les Bains in Haute Savoie, I travel everywhere in France and Switzerland. My wedding reports are very marked by the street photography that I particularly like. In marriage I like to capture emotions, raw moments and without false pretenses. I also love to follow you through the night, when everyone gets loose! [Haute-Savoie Wedding Photographer]
Outside of addictive kissing and baking workshops with my daughters. I made the choice to place photography at the center of my daily life, with the annoying habit of capturing under my lens my family that I love so much. Eloise and Adèle, my small primitive beings often lend themselves to the game, thus helping me to perfect my vision of (extra) ordinary everyday life while retaining my qualities of discretion. Need connection with nature and time in love, I spend hours soaking up it during wild hikes during which I try to capture light, a perfume, a universe, with all my senses, this time without a camera. Handball player, between two gourmet breaks, I invest myself in life and like to show it as it is, in its essence, its truth, without detours or artifices. My sensitivity as a professional photographer finds as much meaning and pleasure in doing a family photo shoot or a wedding report as in creating a gourmet environment for a culinary photo shoot or sculpting the light in the studio. All these photographic fields are inspiring and so enriching for me. [Drôme Wedding Photographer]
