About

I'm a filmmaker from Paris, I specialized in wedding videos 4 years ago : I loved it.

How did you get into the wedding industry?

I had an announce published in a french wedding blog. I was offering a big discount to all couples who wanted a short film of their wedding.
I filmed 14 wedding thé first year, It was a great start.

Tell us about one of your best experiences at work?

In 2019 I have my first really big destination weddings. I just come back from Miami where I spent one week with a couple : best experience so far !
It's si satisfying to take time to know the couple better.

What equipment do you use?

I change my gear really often because I love to try new things.
I'm shooting this year with a Sony a7iii and Sony a7sii caméra B, both with canon lenses.
I use also a lot my mobile phone with lenses when travelling. A Zhiyun crane stab also.

What's your favorite part of the wedding day? Why?

I love the party ! All stress is gone, couple and guests are relaxed and me too. I love to film people dancing, I use the lights of the DJ and go in the middle of the dancefloor to get close ups and fun dynamic footages.

Favorite Book

Barjavel - La nuit des temps

Any advice for Brides and Grooms?

If possible, take the time to meet your videographer before the wedding.

Any personal advice for fellow Photographers & Videographers?

We are a team, photographers and videographers should help each other on the wedding day.
