Wedding questions

Where are you based ?

I live in France, in a city near Paris called Reims.

Do tou travel ?

For sure ! I travel super easily outside of Paris. Do not hesitate to contact me.

Do you do wedding films ?

Yes. I’m a photographer but I work with outstanding videographers too. Just check out my video portfolio 🙂

What’s your price as a wedding photographer ?

Each marriage is unique. I offer several packages to adapt to all budgets and all desires. The prices of these packages start at 1100 euros. But I invite you to contact me in order to set an appointment and discuss the details of my services in person. I will thus be able to present to you as clearly as possible my working methods and my price list.

When should we book you?

As soon as possible ! My partners and I are regularly booked several months in advance. Do not hesitate to contact me as soon as possible to find out my availability.

Can you save a date for security ?

Only the signing of a contract between you and me is able to definitively set a date and secure it firmly. A 30% deposit will be required in order to validate your commitment.

How can we pay ?

Deposits can be made by check, cash, or bank transfer. The remaining balance will be paid no later than the day of the wedding by check or cash. Credit cards are unfortunately not accepted yet.

How do you work ?

Depending on what you have defined, I will accompany you all the time during my time on site. I will be at your disposal to take the photos you want, and which we will have talked about before during an appointment. For more information on the course of my service, I invite you to consult the “Package” section in the menu of this site.

Can guests attend the couple photo session ?

I generally ask the bride and groom to reserve the exclusivity of their presence for this special moment. Thus, in order to be able to organize this part of my service effectively, and unless expressly requested by me, I will ask that no guest be present at this particular and intimate photo shoot.

Who chooses the places for the couple photo shoot ?

You have two choices. The first: you choose the location (s) of your photo shoot and we discuss it together. The second: you give me carte blanche, and I take care of that for you. In any case, we will discuss it before your wedding.

What is the best moment of the day to take our couple photos ?

My favorite moment is during golden hour, that is when the sun is about to set. Typically, this is the hour before sunset. The light is very beautiful, slightly orange and softer than during daylight. If possible, plan your couple session as late as possible in your day (but before sunset anyway) !

We are not comfortable in front of a camera. Will the images still be good ?

Yes ! Don’t worry, I will manage the situation! It is my job you know… 🙂

How many photos do you deliver ?

It depends on the package you’re going to choose. Generally, for a full day coverage, I guarantee around 400 photographs.

Should I buy a second shooter ?

A second shooter option (second photographer) is available in my packages. I recommend it to you to receive even more quality photos. In addition, a second photographer offers a second perspective on a wedding. It takes additional photos. With two photographers, the artistic possibilities are increased tenfold! So why not think about it?

How soon will you deliver the entire wedding report ?

Generally, under six or seven weeks.

Can I share my photos ?

For sure ! Although rare wedding photographers keep the exclusivity of their images and wish to control their distribution (on social networks in particular), I believe that the images come back to you. You’re free to use them as you want (except for sale). So, yes, share them !

Will my guests be able to access our images ?

If you want so, yes. In addition to deliver the photos on a USB package, we provide a free private gallery, protected by password, where the guests you want can access the images. Your guests will be able to order paper prints or other products directly from this gallery.

Do you offer wedding albums ?

Yes. I design your wedding photo book if you need. I have selected incredible printer, regarding their quality work. I will offer you the best.

What’s the price og a wedding album ?

The price of the photo books I offer starts at 350 euros, design and printing included.

Do you keep the photos ?

The delivered photos are kept for a minimum of one year. However, I recommend that you keep them on several different media (hard drive disks, usb keys, computers, etc). Raw photos that have not been retouched are not systematically kept.

Do you offer engagement, day after or trash the dress sessions ?

Yes. As a couple and wedding photographer, I also offer these services. Do not hesitate to consult my lifestyle couple photos.
