bordeaux wedding 

A wedding is one of the most emotional moments you will ever experience. The wedding photographer you choose to capture all the emotion of your wedding or elopement is a crucial choice and should not be taken lightly. I have photographed more than 200 weddings since the beginning of my career in 2011. I started my career as a wedding photographer here in Bordeaux,  I know perfectly this area and I would be happy to make you the most beautiful wedding photos you expect from this wonderful day. 

During my years of photographing weddings all over Europe and especially in France and Italy, I have acquired a unique knowledge and approach to your event. I have photographed weddings with more than 300 guests but also more intimate ones like elopements with only my camera and me as witnesses of a union. 

M y vision of your wedding photography

From proximity to intimacy, this is how a wedding should be photographed ...

Photographing a wedding while being far from you is not a good way to do it. Often wedding photographers hide them thinking that they will be more discreet. In reality, the more visible a photographer is, the more he's blend in with the guests. This is how I capture unique wedding photos that will last for generations.

To add timelessness to my photos I edit them as film photos. Thus my past as a film photographer takes all its sense. Film has this nostalgia that the too perfect images of digital cameras does not have. My wedding photos are a sweet mix between modernity and timelessness with a touch of fashion.

Pure, timeless photos with a touch of fashion and casual moments...

Where are you based ?

I currently live in Bordeaux, more exactly in the south of Bordeaux, in the middle of the vineyards, in a very charming little village called Arbanats, which was named in the top 20 destinations by Air Bnb


Does it matter if you haven’t worked at my venue before ? 

Honestly, no. It doesn't matter to me if I've been to a wedding venue or not. If it's my first time at a venue, I have to check out the wedding venue's website and arrive early to find out about the venue.

How many images will we receive and do we get usage rights?  

You will have about 50 photos per hour of presence, this is an average, the number of wedding photos will vary depending on the number of guests you have invited. You can use the photos without limits, they are yours.

Do you shoot film or digital ? 

I photograph your wedding with digital cameras and I edit each photo so that they are as close as possible to Film rendering that I like. As an option, it is possible to photograph your wedding in film.

What is your price ?

My rates for photographing your wedding depend on the number of hours your wedding requires, its location, whether or not a second shooter is needed, do you have a welcome event... To learn more about my rates I invite you to book a call and I will send you a personalized quote .

Do you have back-up equipment?

Of course, it is essential to have a backup. My cameras are revised every year. When I return from your wedding I make 3 backups of your wedding images. I delete the backup only when your gallery is online.

How long before my event should I book you ? 

Most couples contact me between 12 and 6 months before their event, however, others contact me just 2 months before their event. What is sure is that if you want me to photograph your wedding the sooner the better. 

How and when will we receive the photos ?

Your wedding photos will be delivered to you on a private online gallery. You will be able to download them and share them with your family or friends if you wish. The time needed to deliver the photos is 4 to 5 weeks. 

Bordeaux wedding venues

Vineyards, Chateau, Hotels, Beach wedding, Bordeaux offers many possibilities for your event...

Vineyards and Châteaux.

Because of its location Bordeaux offers multiple landscapes for your wedding. You can find castles surrounded by vineyards such as the Château de Garde or the Château de la Ligne, bourgeois castles in the Dordogne such as the Château la Durantie, Château Smith Haut Laffite but also historical castles such as the Château de Lisse. Finding a castle in the Bordeaux area is quite simple, not all of them will be able to host your event, but I can only invite you to get information from wedding planners like Nicole or Laura.  


If you wish to get married in a luxury hotel, the grand hotel of Bordeaux in front of the opera will be an ideal place especially if you are Christian you will have the church at some steps. You will also have the great Bernard Magrez house and for an elopement one of my favorite places in Bordeaux: Les sources de Caudalies 

Beach Weddings 

And yes Bordeaux is very close to the Atlantic Ocean you can make a beautiful beach wedding, two wedding venues have an access close to the beach, the cabane bartherotte which is just in front of the largest sand dune in Europe La dune du Pyla is an ideal place for a wedding with boho notes. And the Villa Tosca which is almost feet in the water, this place of marriage offers a superb natural swimming pool and an impregnable view on the Basin of Arcachon.
