I shot my first wedding in the Dordogne in 2012 and have been lucky enough to have gone back every year since to shoot weddings in France. I've shot all over France, although I seem to keep returning to the Dordogne! I can easily say that shooting weddings in France is the highlight of my working year, so drop me a line via my contact form if you're planning a wedding in France. Read on for more info about the weddings I've shot in France and to see the pictures from some of my favourites.
“WOW!!!!! We have been looking for hours! I need to start again at the beginning to take it all in properly. But just a quick note to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The are amazing!!!! We have opened our last bottle of wedding champagne which we had saved and chilled ready, especially for this moment and have been in tears of joy and fits of laughter all evening. Words can’t describe how incredible it is to be taken back to that beautiful, wonderful day. Every image is a work of art – thank you thank you thank you!”
1. Is your approach to shooting a wedding in France different from the UK?
It's basically the same, but with a few tweaks. I always arrive the day before the wedding to make sure I'm there in good time but also so that I can come to the venue and have a good look around. It's also a good opportunity to say hello and run through the final plan for the day.
2. Does sunlight effect the photography?
I've shot on many bright summer's days in France, inculding one of the hottest days on record! It makes no difference to me, I just have to be mindful of how I use the light in my photos, but it's something I've done many times. My main recommendation is to try and allocate a slot for couple pictures in the golden hour about an hour before sunset. It makes all the difference to the pictures!
3. Do you charge for travel and accommodation?
I charge a fixed fee of £350 towards travel and accommodation.
