I am a photographer because I can put order into my world this way and give it a meaning. When everything comes in its right place in my viewfinder, nothing is more satisfying! I am passionate, perfectionist, independent, workaholic.
As far as I can remember, I have always been looking for an artistic way to express myself. Some years ago, when I got my first camera, I immediately knew it was it! A revelation and immediate passion quickly focused to portrait and social pictures. This is the reason for my interest in weddings. There is no better better occasion to catch these short moments full of life, full of emotion, while playing with light and dealing with all unexpected events.
My feminine sensitivity and my discretion are some of my assets to let couples live again - if not discover - their wedding. Through spontaneous images that will be full of life, of poetry and, sometimes, of humour.
I shoot about twenty weddings each year, and I've been shooting weddings for six years.

I have to admit I’m drawn to the more unusual setting here. I wish the guy on the left side of the frame was more engaged, but the girl at the right helps make up for it.
We can only wish to know exactly what the sound girl at right is thinking but her head cocked stare, as she views the scene of a couple who have apparently signed their official papers for legal recognition as husband and wife, is the wonderful taste of this image akin to the lingering palatable notes at the finish of a fine wine.
Fun frame of this poor little girl awkwardly crashed out on a chair. Her body language is what makes it. A hint more of the background illuminated would make it even stronger I think.
I like this moment because it captures the expression on both the bride and the groom! Perfect framing where the bride’s hand is up high enough so we can see the groom’s reaction. Brings a smile to my face!
There is a time and place for a silhouette, when it reveals a moment devoid of visage, an untouched, unspoiled celebration of something greater than its participants. It reveals a beauty that the eye could not behold without the photographer, and a little magic box - a time-trapper - commonly called a camera.
Too funny; I want to be at this wedding. Well-composed chaos, (though some of the faces are lost) but it didn’t matter because the bride and groom are the focus and their faces are great.
Fun photo of a bride and groom reaching to personally toast with each individual guest..
My goodness! What a conundrum. This is a moment where toasting looks more like Twister. Arms and glasses fly left and right, this way and that way. Just follow the yellow and bubbly road; “Hands and arms and glasses… oh my!” But before I venture too far let’s all bow to a wonderful image. It’s composed well. The lighting is spot on and most importantly the moment is there before us with unassailable veracity.
Two photos in one, a split view, eyes looking away in opposite directions. Creatively done.
Nice use of layering the image, the bride on the right makes it and helps capture the spirit of the event.
