Gaëlle you know how to take advantage of the best, even in bad weather conditions. A great result that I do not get tired of watching. In everyone's opinion, you are discreet, social, and attentive to everyone's desires. Very good value for a professional and artistic result (no pictures plan shot). Each person is highlighted while remaining natural, you do not skimp to shoot photos to capture every magic moment of this exceptional day. Thanks to you.
