In the here and now


Drawing, building, deconstructing, starting over, painting, composing, recomposing, imagining, dreaming. Since I was a child, I have had the chance to be curious and to create, whatever the support, the tool or the place.


Growing up, traveling became evident. In addition to the wanting to create, I discovered that inspiration is the fruit of change and openness to others. Meeting and immersing myself with people lost in the Himalayas, in the depths of the Persian Gulf or in Central America has taught me to keep a fresh and open eye to understand and capture the full range of human connections.


With my old film camera, I had the chance to document unique ceremonies, rituals or ancestral dances but also very simple moments in bamboo huts or cabins.

I was able to share the life of families and capture the emotions, the moments of joy, the laughter by being totally accepted.

These experiences have grown me personally and humanly.

Giving meaning

I understood that you don’t just have to be creative, but above all you have to have the sensitivity to capture intense images that make sense.

Since 2009, I have been a wedding photographer.
My passions for creation have finally guided me naturally to where I give the best of myself: capturing the history and unique moments of your wedding, giving meaning to my images, telling your memories through the lense of my camera and give you back a unique and tailor-made experience.

My photographic style: candid, timeless and elegant.

My vision of the wedding photo

I don’t wish to lock myself into a particular style. Rather, I wish to combine different photo techniques that will characterize my gaze.

By combining these different styles, I have been expressing what I am and what I like most in photography for almost 25 years.


Above all, I want my images to be timeless and to remain perfect over time. Having shot countless numbers of medium format and 35mm films, I really want to get closer to this unique and timeless look.

Luminous, colorful and joyful, but also beautiful black and white to highlight emotions and unique moments.

Candid and bold documentary photography

Then, I document candid reportage in order to capture the real moments. The strong, offbeat or family moments that will make striking and unique memories.

This documentary approach brings power and intensity to the images which will be varied, lively, joyful, moving, sincere because they are not posed.

Elegant editorial photo

The third part of my creative approach is the enhancement of the location and the elegance of every little detail that is of great importance.

I also like to make beautiful, classical portraits with a modern touch.
Capturing the moment, chasing the light, and be able to translate the emotions of your love story.


Discreetly, I blend into your wedding day without ever imposing.
I wish to bring my sensitivity, graphic and aesthetic sense while mastering the technical aspect. But the most important thing for me is to restore the emotions, the family and friends connections and all the magic moments of this great day.

For me, wedding photography is about telling your memories through the lense of my camera and give you back a unique and tailor-made experience.

The relationship I create with couples is essential in my work in order to render images that look like they really are and make sense to them.

It is very important to me to meet you beforehand in order to get to know you and then become the privileged witness of your wedding. This approach allows me to obtain, on the day of your union, images that are new, rare and full of emotion.
Because your wedding is one-of-a-kind, I approach each and every wedding with a completely unique perspective, taking inspiration from your vision, your bond and your story.
