in the Ardennes
When I settled in Longwy, in the north of the Meurthe-et-Moselle region, I never imagined that my job would take me all the way to the Ardennes. And yet! I had the opportunity to cover weddings celebrated in the (very pretty) town hall of Sedan, and others in the (sumptuous) town hall of Charleville-Mézières. If you want to get married in the region, you can contact me here !
My career in photography
I discovered photography when I was a teenager. At that time, I photographed everything around me: my family, my friends, but also forests, mountains and great expanses whenever I has the opportunity. I quickly realized when it came to photographing landscapes, I was always disappointed with my pictures. They never conveyed the feeling of eternity that I had while taking the picture. It was as if all this space refused to fit into my frame.
On the contrary, I've always liked photographing people, trying to capture a fleeting emotion or an unexpected movement. I love fixing a burst of laughter or a moment of tenderness in a photo. Amandine, my own wedding photographer, made me discover this universe which gradually became like a big playground to me. My preferences can be seen in my reportages: I may want to take "ambiance" photos, but my series ends up overflowing with close-ups and portraits to capture a look of complicity or a kiss. I try my best to photograph in my own way another form of eternity.

Where to get married in the Ardennes
The Ardennes region is full of beautiful places to host weddings or photo shoots. I already had the chance to work at some of these beautiful places like the Sedan Castle or the Domaine Château du Faucon. There also are the Castle of Thugny-Trugny, the Castle of Risdoux or the one of Montaubois (it is indeed a region of castles).
Nevertheless, if there is one thing those last months have proven to us, it is that you don't need a private domain to have beautiful and creative photos for your wedding or for a romantic session! In Charleville-Mézières, you can use the magnificent facades of the Place Ducale or the Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, or the Bayard footbridge, which lends itself easily to very pretty photos.
