English speaking wedding photographer near Paris

Couples & weddings – France & Europe

Esteemed guests,

Over the last few years, I have captured the warmth and emotion of couples on special occasions for them to look back and relive the experiences for a lifetime. My name is Terence Baelen, and I am a wedding photographer based in Paris. It is my pleasure to welcome you to my page, where you can see these experiences for yourself. 

A wedding is not only a special day, but also an important moment for the lives of the future newlyweds. To be able capture the joyous and intense emotions of a union is why I chose to pursue photography.

Photographer based near Paris, I specialize in wedding and couple photos. Thus, I accompany the newlyweds in writing their memories. My style is essentially made of ‘photo-journalism’. In other words, I act discretely to capture the key and stolen moments. Natural and spontaneous photos : this is the essence of my artistic vision.

On the other hand, on weddings, I also like to take the time to create with you artistic and structured images. So, during the couple photo shoot, I will be happy to direct you, always taking care to preserve the naturalness and spontaneity that you expect. I have some secret techniques in my pocket…

Even though I live in Paris suburbs, I enjoy to travel around the world to catch and shoot weddings.

Wedding photographer and videographer in Paris


As I already mentioned, I prefer natural and authentic photos to poses too much stuffy and eccentric. My style nevertheless finds its inspiration directly in my passion for cinema.

Passionate about movies, from the first classics to big American blockbusters, I love the elegance of cinematic colors and I worship the grain, which was the charm of films of yesteryear. Golden hour has also become my specialty and my trademark.

Anyway, the goal that I give myself in my wedding photos is to create memories but also to tell a story. A love story. Your love story.


I work with talented wedding videographers. They will make your wedding film, with a high cinema quality. Drone, slow-motions, 4K quality. You will be totally amazed by their creations.

These videographers (or “filmmakers“) are qualified and competent professionals. Over the time, they have become good friends. Thus, we can work together with a total confidence, and without hindering ourselves.

We work so well together that we can sometimes share certain tasks. In this way, the videographer can take some wedding photos. And vice versa !
