Elopement Photographers for Small PACA Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Vaucluse wedding event is a wedding photojournalist’s dream: a fairly open schedule with lots of breathing space for creativity – it’s just the photographer, the couple, the officiant, and perhaps a few select companions.

Members are ready to document any small, city hall, fast, or elopement wedding, even if it is a Monday-Thursday ceremony. Search for the “Can Shoot Weddings on Short Notice!” message on the listings below.

We are anxious to create a picture story chronicling your modern, unique, non-traditional, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered.

Self-taught photographer, living in the south of France, in a Luberon village, near Aix-en-Provence and Marseille, in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region (PACA).

Vaucluse wedding reportage photography by Frederic Sicard of PACA France

I was born in September 1974 in Avignon in the Vaucluse. Passionate photographer for a long time and professional since 2014. From film to digital, I have never stopped taking photos to immortalize the little ones, as well as the big events that I was experiencing. I thus discovered my passion: the portrait and the moments of life. After 15 years in IT, photography has become my one and only job for over 7 years. Living off my passion is one of my great pride. I like to put my eyes and my creativity at the service of people. As a professional photographer, I train myself every year in new photographic practices and techniques. Married since October 2010, my wife and I share our house with our cat "Facebook". Unless it is she who shares her house with us…. [Vaucluse Wedding Photographer]

Marseille Wedding Photographer Thomas Orsatelli

For me, my life took a real turn at the age of 19 because it was at that age that I had my first experience abroad (in Boston in the USA). The click! This first strong and enriching experience allowed me to understand a lot of things and gave me a certain openness. From this experience was born in particular my passion for travel and photography. Time has passed and many memories have been created through many journeys around the world, moments with family and with Jessica, my everyday half. Photography took a special place in my daily life because it was the way to relive all these moments. All my experiences have allowed me to get there today and make me the person I am and a fulfilled photographer. Being able to feel free and happy every morning when I wake up.

Some couples, as they begin planning for their weddings, might think that they are limited to the classic locations: churches, gardens, beaches, or even Las Vegas. But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more? An entirely different genre of wedding, so to speak, is the adventure wedding elopement. This concept...Read more
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more
Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe! LESS IS MORE Instead of hemming your guests in on all sides, give them some elbow room, and legroom, too. There's no need to induce claustrophobia when you've got a wide, open space. Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more
While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more
So your wedding is just around the corner and you’ve decided to elope , either because you want to do this on a budget , avoid a large wedding party, or simply to enjoy the day together with minimal distractions and as little stress as possible . They say 'all you need is love', but where exactly can you afford to trim the fat, so to speak? You want simplicity, but you also want to be properly married and, surely, to remember this occasion. Who, then, could be more important than...Read more
While some people live for the hustle and bustle of a big wedding with extravagant décor and an impossibly long guest list, others find these kinds of weddings to be too much hoopla, preferring instead something simpler and quieter, allowing for more intimacy between them and their fiancés on this special day.

Hi Karol, I did not want to thank you again for the service performed at our wedding on June 25 in Cassis. You have fully responded to our needs, and the pictures speak for themselves ... They are simply the image of what we wanted, beautiful! We were not worried about the quality of the work done, but we know that this art is subjective, and that belongs to everyone to have his own judgment. You have completely met our expectations and our "Brief" departure. We appreciate the style of your photos, and the discretion that you could have throughout the preparations, the ceremony and the evening. I hope you have also enjoyed all day long Thank you for the little gift box! See you soon I hope Marine and Clement

I cannot say enough positive things about you. We couldn’t have selected a better photographer. To be honest, we now have a much greater appreciation for photography than we had before. We feel as though our wedding pictures are not just photos from the most extraordinary day, but are individual works of art that feature us as the leading subjects. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to entrust you with this precious job.
