My career as a working photographer began when I was a journalist. It often occurred that I would abandon the pen in favour of the camera, in order to adequately express my need to tell stories through images. In fact, this approach led me to focus on the subject of photo reporting as I completed specialized studies in photojournalism.
Avant Garde Studio came into existence as a natural result of my learning process. I love doing weddings. I love working with couples in love!!!! I actually feel very privileged to capture all those precious moments during a wedding day, while enjoying the freedom of expression and creativity that I experience through photography.

Adeline you were amazing! I found your studio via WPJA. Your photos were stunning and I dreamed of being an Avant Garde bride! I was not disappointed! I booked your services from out of the country, you were very responsive to my emails, we met via Skype and you made the payment process very easy and flexible. You were early to our venue and stayed until you got all the shots you needed. The day of I felt completely at ease with you and your assistant. You were both extremely professional and patient with our families. You were constantly moving and thinking of different angles. I would HIGHLY recommend you Adeline to any bride. Your style is not traditional and I appreciate that so much! Being a huge fan of Doisneau and the photojournalistic style I was extremely pleased with your shots. I hate posing for pictures and I shared this sentiment with you, you listened to me and I never felt like I had to 'pose' for anything. I'm so very proud of our wedding pictures and I never get tired of looking at them.
