I’ve been a professional wedding photographer for the last 11 years and love my life here in Italy.

I specialize in weddings & elopements in the big cities like Paris and Milan, but I usually spend most of my weekends photographing in Paris, Dordogne, Milan, Provence, the French Riviera, Lake Como, Tuscany, and the Amalfi Coast.

If you’ve chosen to come to one of these stunning locations, you are in the right place for a skilled photographer.

about me




LAKE COMO wedding photographer


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 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. 


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...

“We loved working with Stephen, he his truly an artist. He captured memories to last us a lifetime.”

- Abra & Chris

“We are speechless. These pictures are everything.
You were so amazing to work with and so incredibly talented. Thank you.”

- Jessica & zan

Where are you based ?

I currently live between Italy and France, 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.
