William started out as a freelance wedding photographer in 2009. Very soon a documentary approach emerged and gave meaning to his work. Covering weddings like a photojournalist allowed him to develop a personal style. For him, this approach is the best way to document all the details of the day in a genuine and original way. Because a wedding is a totality. It is not limited to an exchange of wedding rings, or to the first waltz. It is the sum of many moments, both significant and trivial.
His work has received several international awards (more than 200), including the global title of «Photographer of the year» by the WPJA. He has also lectured on his approach to wedding photography around the world (Moscow, Mexico, Johannesburg, Delhi, ...).

William, ... As for the big day, you were just perfect! What to say to you except a huge THANK YOU from the bottom of the heart for having accompanied us throughout this day. You were much more than a photographer that day.

Mathilde & Guillaume
After a few days watching, re-watching and still looking at the pictures, we are still so much appreciative of your work, if not more! We knew your talent by "mutual friends", and it is with our eyes closed that we trusted you for this very special day. Your artistic touch did the rest! You have understood our expectations, and with your discreet and wise eye, you have transcribed all the emotions of this day in your shots. THANK YOU for those moments frozen but not posed!

What to say? we are fans it is unconditional ... Two months after our wedding, the emotion is still intense when we see your photos that transcribe thanks to your talent, the special atmosphere of this day. Everything is perfect from the technical realization to the framing. You could capture "the moments" in all discretion. Because it's useless to look for you, we do not find you, for against you, you have us in your objective ... From this discretion comes true clichés, natural and magnified. Around us, you also marked the spirits by your discretion and your originality. Many of our relatives also found that the pictures of our wedding looked like us, because in addition to your talent, you have a real posture as a photographer, you are listening and you knew us without knowing us at the beginning . It's all these little things that make the difference! So again a big thank you William and see you soon for new adventures;)

With sincerity we say to you: THANK YOU for having embellished the most beautiful day of our life ...
