My name is Olivier and I am a lifestyle & wedding photographer based in the heart of Paris. My passion is photography and i have spent the past 20 years travelling around the world capturing life and images. I studied visual arts at the London college of printing of London. Soon after my studies, I moved to Australia. Here, I photographed my very first destination wedding on the beach of Sydney. I simply fell in love with the craft.
I continued my press photography career and moved to New York city where I photographed everything from news stories to editorials for magazines like Marie Claire, Stern, Gourmet Traveller, The Australian and the New York Times. Alongside my career as an editorial photographer, I continued to photograph weddings and intimate elopements for some of the best wedding planners in the country. I had the privilege of being able to travel from the east to west coast and all the way to the caribbean and Mexico to photograph destination weddings. I know and appreciate how exciting a destination wedding is!
In 2007, I moved to Paris and have settled into my favorite kind of work; photographic storytelling for destination weddings and, elopements, engagements and portrait photography. I firmly believe that wedding photography is more then getting a few pretty shots of the wedding gown or the bouquet. Wedding photography is about emotion, family, friends, commitment and love.
Whether I am holding up traffic on Park avenue to get an amazing shot of a family portrait or running the streets of Paris catching the best light with my couples, my hard work shines through in my photographs. The best romantic shots are when my couples are at ease and relaxed in front of the camera. My friendly demeanor makes it easy and fun. Whether it is an intimate elopement in Paris or a grand wedding in Provence, I approach each celebration with the same skillful and lively manner.
Wedding & Elopement photography is about catching unique and intimate moments of a couple celebrating their love and union - Special moments that are gone in the blink of an eye during the course of the day, that are so special to my brides. These are the photographs that you will cherish forever and share with your kids later on in life. Allow me to capture your love, energy, your heart and translate your wedding day into stunning photographs that are true to who you are.
We can discuss your wedding plans in Paris over a cup of coffee or on the phone if you are planning for a destination wedding and live abroad.
If you are planning to visit Paris in the months prior to your wedding day, it is a great introduction to the art of photography to spend an afternoon together & connect and walk the streets of Paris for your engagement photo session. This way you will be all at ease in front of the camera for your wedding day and will certainly forget you are being photographed.
