* Photographe spécialisé dans le reportage de mariage, je suis basé à Paris et couvre tous vos évènements en France comme à l’International.
Après une dizaine d'années de passion débordante, ScPhoto rejoint le monde professionnel de la photographie le 5 Février 2010 (jour de mes 30 ans - l'âge de raison parait-il !)
Admis à la WPJA en 2011, l’ISPWP en 2012, et pour finir à la très sélect Best Of Wedding Photography en 2013: 3 grandes associations reconnues qui regroupent les meilleurs photojournalistes de mariage au niveau international.
Le regard que je porte à la photographie de mariage est basé sur la simplicité, la spontanéité et le naturel, d'où mon rapprochement et mon affinité avec le photojournalisme.
L'idée étant de créer une image cohérente associant la lumière, les lignes et la composition, à une émotion, expression ou attitude, pour que l'art se mêle au souvenir...
Mon maître mot est la discrétion, j'aborde votre mariage de manière non-intrusive, souvent vous ne me remarquerez pas..."
* Specialized photographer in Wedding Photojournalism, I am based in Paris, and can also offer the same range of services abroad for your events.
After a decade of passion ScPhoto has joined the professional world of photography on February 5th 2010 (my 30th birthday - the age of reason, isn’t it ?)
Admitted to the WPJA in 2011, ISPWP in 2012, and finally to the very select Best Of Wedding Photography in 2013 : 3 international associations with most of the most famous wedding photojournalists.
How do I consider the wedding photography ? My point of view is based on simplicity, spontaneity and natural, that’s why I feel so close and explain my link with the photojournalism.
The idea is to create a consistent picture that associates the light of lines and composition with an emotion, an expression or an attitude, so that art can mix with a memory…
My principal quality is discretion. I am present at your wedding in a non-intrusive way, most of the time your will not even notice me.*

I love a photo like this - capturing the aftermath of what has happened, to tell the story. The low contrast tones, typical of a sunless day, combined with the wet boardwalk, tell us of a wedding “ruined” by rain. I use the word “ruined” because I’ve never seen a wedding day wrecked by rain. It’s not just the contingency plan by wedding planners, but rather the nature of the event that saves the day. Multiple repeating patterns here, framed by doors and the leading line of the boardwalk, make a highly thoughtful composition.
Details can get cliché very quickly. I was very surprised by this find by the photographer. It is great seeing and took a bit of planning to execute. Nice shot!
Here's an example of what we used to refer to in the photojournalism biz as a "good eye." It takes a creative eye and a probing photographer to find and make a juxtaposition like this. There's another saying used during my years as a photojournalist, that the highest compliment you could pay to a fellow photographer is to say, "I wish I had made that photo." Therefore I'm as green with envy as the juxtaposition seen here.
Beautiful touching moment of the bride as she walks down the aisle with her father and focuses on an ill relative that is unable to stand. Framing is nice and expressions are lovely as their hands are intertwined. Normally you would expect that moment of compassion because the bride is usually very focused on getting to the altar.
You can feel the tension in this image. Stressful. It is like looking in on two different worlds.
Interesting angles and light with perfectly placed people.
This image is so much about the photographer looking at the situation in a new way to find a different kind of image with multiple planes of activity.
