YOUR PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN PARIS

I am a self confessed romantic and knowing how special love and marriage is, it is no wonder that I decided to become a wedding photographer. I use a modern approach that features couples in natural situations as well as more formal poses to ensure that each photo brings out the best in everyone’s personality. A wedding is a romantic occasion, so I capture my subjects displaying true tenderness and emotions that only a marriage can bring about. Because of my passion for obtaining the best representation of a couple’s special day, I take many informal photos of teary eyes, shy looks and warm embraces, most of which are spontaneous and would normally not be captured. I pride myself in being discreet and unobtrusive, but my camera is always ready to shoot that special moment.

I AM FOREMOST A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Getting to know the bride and groom is a large part of creating the best possible record of their wedding day. I like to discuss the way I usually operate and to hear any changes or particular situations they want me to include. This preparation helps me coordinate my plan to give the client the very best work that I can produce. As with most other wedding photographers, I am generally booked up many months or even a year before a wedding date, so it is important that I meet with the client nearer the actual date to run over all the details and timing of different aspects of the marriage. My priority is to reassure clients that every detail discussed will be adhered to and that all they need do is relax and enjoy their day.
I have photographed many weddings in Paris during the last four years and have therefore formed a rapport with other wedding services, so I can assist my clients in finding other providers, such as a florist, a wedding planner or dress rental company.

I AM MUCH MORE THAN A FACE BEHIND A CAMERA – I AM YOUR STEADFAST COMPANION

I'M REALLY PROUD OF

When planning a wedding, one of the most difficult things to decide on is the right wedding photographer. This is the one day that you want captured to perfection, so you need to know that the photographer is reliable and professional. Before making a booking, visit a few photographers and look through their portfolio to determine if you like their style and if their photos project the type of mood you want.
There are two kinds of photographers; those that take formal, posed photos and those that portray the true feeling of a wedding day. Of course I take formal photographs because everyone wants those, but I also like to blend in with the guests and wedding party to take a good selection of candid shots. Sometimes posed photos don’t do people justice, they can put on a forced smile, whereas a candid shot reveals their true personality and will be much more natural.
Some couples worry about not being photogenic, this is where discreet, unnoticed shots reveal their true facial expressions and body language. Newly married couples want to enjoy their wedding day and don’t want to be aware of the photographer always being around, so that is why I prefer to stay in the background and mingle with guests. Because people are not conscious of me being around doesn’t mean I am not doing my job, it means I am being professional and allowing everyone to relax and have fun.

When a special rapport exists between photographer and client, events unfold naturally and the final photos will turn out to be exactly as expected and they will reflect the time we spent together planning the event. Any good, professional photographer knows that an assignment doesn’t finish at the end of the wedding day, it continues until the client is completely satisfied with the final results. The budget for the photographer always has to be considered, but why pay less and not get a true representation of this glorious day, which can never be repeated, so splash out and get the best you can afford.

Emile and Christophe

Maxime was able to capture the theme of our natural wedding, simple, bohemian highlighting the chic and elegance of his photos. The pictures of couples are wonderful and perceive the complicity we had at that time. Few photos asked but many moments stolen at the corner of a look or a smile.

A year ago, August 25, 2018 Maxime accompanied us to seize one of the most beautiful moments of our life. He was able to blend in with the guests and adapt to the busy schedule and the weather to allow us to keep forever the most beautiful images of this unique moment. No false notes, involvement from first to last day, upstream and even after the wedding.

Just like you, your wedding is unique, so you want your special day to be something you will always remember. I will be with you every step of the way, photographing each moment as you and your partner declare your love for one another. From the time you don your beautiful wedding gown, put the finishing touches to your veil and pick up your beautiful bouquet, my camera will freeze these moments in time. The exchanging of rings is an outstanding moment, as is arriving at the reception hall and greeting your guests, so these occasions deserve to be immortalized along with your first dance together as husband and wife.

Group photos are always popular and allow families and friends to be photographed together, something that rarely happens, so they are classed as formal photos. However, sometimes the best shots are when people are off their guard and more relaxed. These are the moments that I specialize in— »real” wedding day photos depicting love and happiness.

MORE THAN JUST A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I am more than just a wedding photographer; I like to seek out beautiful locations for engagement portraits or family sessions. I have lived in Paris since I was a small child and I know all the undiscovered corners of the city that create remarkable backgrounds for amazing photographs. Let me show you “my” Paris, parts you have never seen before and areas that tell unique stories. Life’s most important moments pass too quickly, so I like to freeze them in time for all posterity. Although I am based in Paris, I travel throughout the Ile-de-France and other parts of France.
