I'm a French wedding photographer, spontaneous and discreet, with a photojournalist approach. I love natural surrounding and true emotions. Based in the South-West of France I work mostly in this region but there are no boundaries between us, so... feel free to contact me.

We often talk about the "trash the dress" but with "clean" pictures ! I try to offer the opportunity to my clients for a real TTD in a funny moment. Obviously for this type of shot you need to find a bride who doesn't care about her dress !

I use a Nikon D800 (f5.6 - 1/1000) - 24.70 f2.8 (70mm) - yellow and green paint, water - and a rain protection!

Imported the image into lightroom only for basic adjustments, contrast and brightness, no effect.

This shot is an extract of a series, my favorite one, the end of the shooting after a paint and a water battle, with a totally laid back attitude! The couple really love this series of images, they had some fun and were happy to do it

The shot was taken at the bridegrooms home 2 days after the wedding. (easier to have a shower straight afterwards)
