Getting married in France? … Awesome!
Your big day
You’ve probably got a gorgeous rock on your finger, a big smile on your face and a big day to organise. How very exiting! This will be one of the most beautiful and memorable days of your life and you will probably want to document that special day with pictures that reflect it truthfully and do your unique event justice. Therefore, for most couples choosing to invest in professional photography is an important decision. I offer an all-in-one photography package to make it nice and easy for you but as every wedding is different, the package can be tailored especially to your wishes based on the detailed discussions. I always aim to offer my clients a stress-free experience with a relaxed and natural style of photography. I won’t be in your way but I will go out of my way to capture all the important moments of your special day!
Three words to describe my style: creative, reportage-style and fun. I believe a wedding day should be a fun and loving day, and be as natural as can be. I am not there to intrude, I will not boss you around, my sole mission is to capture those special moments and all the details you’ve so carefully planned and make them come together in the portrait of the wedding day you always dreamed of.
Wedding photography package
Photo & Video Package: €1800 – This is another package option I can do. I would offer slightly less photos but bring you a 3-4 min video to music.
2nd Photographer: €300 – For better coverage of the day and more photos.
Your Photo Gallery: Once your photos are ready, they will be awaiting you in the Gallery for you to view, download and share with family and friends. A printing service is also available in the gallery.
- Digital download of your photos via the gallery itself to your computer. All Photos are high-resolution with full copyright to you.
- Back-Up – for the safety keeping of your precious memories of the big day, the gallery also acts as a back-up in case of your computer etc
If you have any questions or specific requirements for your wedding photography, get in touch. In order to secure & confirm my services for your wedding date & photography package, a deposit of €100 along with an agreement of the contract is required. Please ask for more information.
As you will know planning is of the essence as there will be so much going on in just one day. We will need to discuss timing and details beforehand and I will be more than happy to share my experience with you to make sure there is plenty of time and opportunity to take the pictures you want whatever the weather conditions. You are investing quite some money in photography on your wedding day so it is important I understand your taste and expectations so I can do my utmost best to deliver exactly what you were hoping for.

I am a British photographer specialising in wedding & portrait photography since 2005, capturing people’s unique and memorable stories from London to York and as of 2012 also in Barcelona. I love my job and I’m passionate about it. Not everyone has the chance to turn their passion into a profession so I consider myself fortunate and I’m determined to always to the best job I possibly can. I am also bilingual in French from a childhood in Paris. When I am not photographing or editing images, I enjoy cooking, hiking, having some nice Belgium beers, watching a series or a movie and spending time with family & friends.
