Frequently Asked Questions

What defines your style?

I have a clearly defined cinematographic filming style. Ambient sounds, voices, and music are prominent in my work. They enrich the storytelling and reveal the depth of the emotions. Each destination wedding film is edited differently, with a backdrop story I create to reflect the bond that unites my couples. None of this would be possible without getting to know my clients and knowing what defines them as a couple. Every detail counts, and when put together, they translate into video what I have in mind before shooting.

Do you work alone?

Yes, I’m a solo destination wedding videographer half the time. I also work with one or two other second shooters when the couple's preparations take place in different locations, when the number of guests is significant, or simply when the bride and groom wish for more shots from different angles. Have a look at this destination wedding in France, where I was solo.

How far are you travelling?

Since I love to travel, discover new cultures and places and bring back amazing images, I have no limits for destination weddings. Nowadays, couples must escape and create different, innovative and unbridled weddings abroad, far from the usual constraints. So I travel everywhere in the world and speak English & French. I’ve recently shot a wedding in Marrakesh, New York, Bangkok and Costa Rica to cover beautiful weddings. I’m looking forward to travelling farther! I’m a wedding videographer in Provence and the French Riviera.

How do you work?

I love to take the time to connect with my couples, their guests, and providers on the morning of the day by arriving ahead of time. This time is also precious to me, so I can locate places, choose the best angles, and anticipate the unexpected. Extra hours are not charged because your schedule is often flexible. As a destination wedding videographer, the value of my work is created on the day of, and as a result, I don’t complete a shoot without being sure I have captured the images I need.

As each couple has a story to tell, as a wedding videographer in France, I work on each of my projects without looking at my watch. The main thing is the quality of the result, no matter if I shoot a wedding in Italy, Spain, Greece, Thailand, or Vietnam. From the selection of the clips to the choice of music or the writing of storytelling, I pay particular attention to details because, when added together, they make all the difference.

What do your packages include?

For each of my wedding packages, I offer a collection of two films with a unique and emotional impact: a short film edited with the codes used in cinema: editing, colour grading, storytelling, music and dynamics. This non-linear and artistic film is perfect for reliving your events. There is no better format than this one to share the essentials of your beautiful day with your loved ones. It is a 15-minute film, chronologically edited, mixing ambient sounds, rhythmic music, and dynamic shots to dive into this day. You can watch the short wedding films here.

What options do you offer?

I offer to cover the day before and/or the brunch the day after; all these magical wedding moments are really important in my work. In addition to the short and the long films, I can edit the video of the complete ceremony, which contains all the speeches. I also offer additional shooters and other à la carte options.

How can we book you?

Before you book, we have to make sure we match. I always offer my future bride and groom the opportunity to meet face-to-face, whether in person or via Skype. It allows us to get to know each other and discuss what is important to them and what defines them as a couple. If the feeling is right, I then send all the booking details. I remain available until the wedding to elaborate on further details.
