2 Documentary Wedding Photographers...

I am an English photographer originally from London and have been based in Nantes, western France for the last 15 years. I have been shooting weddings for over a decade in my own personal style: a marriage of British humour and French romance! Reportage photography is what comes naturally to me, and what I do best. I follow my visual instinct in capturing the flow of events that constitute the rhythmic journey of a wedding day. Passionate about photographing people, I seek to express the spontaneity and full force of emotion that truly define a wedding as a once in a lifetime experience. Being completely bilingual, my cultural and communication skills allow English-speaking couples, getting married in France, to feel totally at ease in front of the camera, essential for creating natural and dynamic photos. Aside from covering weddings, I have worked in the UK and France in the fields of social, documentary and travel photography and am a regular contributor to national press publications such as Capital, Le Point and Le Nouvel Observateur. I am also a teacher of photography to graphic design students. [Vertou Wedding Photographer]

France Wedding Photographer Hong-Phuc Bui, for Bretagne

My name is Hong-Phuc, but call me HP. It's much easier to remember, but also to pronounce. Especially since it sounds pretty good, while recalling a famous brand of computers that I will not mention the name, Harry Potter or HP sauce. I'm a photographer, and I like martial arts and table tennis. A little cliche, you say. I'm French Wedding photographer in Brittany based Côtes-d'Armor area and close to Saint Brieuc. All the most moving moments that life can offer are my inspiration and make me vibrate. So I chose to share with you the happiness, simply. Listen, discover, exchange ... and sit on a bench to contemplate people, life landscapes. Most often with my camera in hand, and sometimes without. I like to enjoy the moment, the spontaneity of expressions, the magic of a gesture or a look. And beyond photography, I also like to share these moments with you. Emotion - natural - spontaneous wedding photographer For that, I opted for a natural, spontaneous and lively photographic style that suits me as a person and a wedding photographer. The captured photos are always taken on the spot with spontaneity and sensitivity. Every detail is important, and some tend to make the day of your wedding or your photo shoot absolutely unique.

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.

However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
