I started my business in Lorraine and therefore work a lot in the French departments of Meurthe-et-Moselle, Moselle or Meuse, though I now regularly cross the border to come and work in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
WHY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?
As a child, I was drawn to many creative activities systematically following the same pattern: I became passionate about a subject - generally for which I had no particular skills - invested myself body and soul for two weeks, then moved on to another passion. Thus entered (then left my life) painting, drawing, pottery (why not), collections of butterflies, flowers, leaves, fans (then again, why not), various musical instruments or language learning. Luxembourgish was, moreover, one of those fleeting passions! In the midst of this creative overflow, the only constant was photography, which I sometimes abandoned but always came back to.
While preparing for my wedding, I discovered this particular profession through my own photographer. I learned through her that it was actually possible to make a living from photography, to make a career out of it. My discovery of wedding photography coincided with a lot of questions I had because I didn't feel good and passionate about my job. Amandine dragged me along in the wedding world: she trained me, took me on her weddings for free so I could practice, gave me many advices about my work and how I could improve it. I owe her this career. I wouldn't have taken the leap of faith without her pushing me.
I now try to be the photographer I was looking for when I got married, and to have for the couples who trust me the empathy and benevolence that my service providers had for me when I got married. The successive exchanges with the couples allow me to draw up specifications for each service. The wedding days follow the same framework, but each event has its own charm, its atmosphere, reflecting each love story it celebrates. I strive to give each report this unique breath so that it reflects the couple it depicts.
My photo services in Luxembourg
I often cross the border to meet couples who tie the knot in the Grand Duchy.
I work most often in the southern cantons of the country: Luxemburg, Remich, Capellen or Esch-sur-Alzette, but I do travel all over the region depending on the wishes of the bride and groom
I accompany lovers in all their projects, small weddings or large receptions, in France or further away.
I do photo shoots for couples but also for families or friends.

HOW I SEE MY WORK AS A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I remember reading an interview as a teenager which had particularly marked me. It was a discussion between two French photographers, Robert Doisneau and Franck Horvat, about photography. The latter said "The moment cannot be both lived and preserved." At the time, this quote struck me because I thought it was pretty. When I became a wedding photographer, I went back to this interview and I realized how right the quote felt. I now often use it to describe my work as I feel allowing couples to enjoy the moment while I capture it is indeed the essence of my work.
A wedding takes months to prepare and eventually turns into a few hours so emotionally charged that they fly by. I think the bride and groom need to have as few sources of stress as possible to savor this day to the fullest, hence the importance of delegating the responsibility of creating their wedding memories to a professional.
Wedding photos are the most concrete memory of this very special day and producing a wedding report is a responsibility that I take very seriously. I designed over the years a service report that I fill out with the bride and groom during every conversations we have before the wedding. The goal is to design their wedding report by taking note of all their desires, the details that are important to them or the symbols of this day that they wish to see immortalized. Good communication is therefore obviously essential. Every wedding day follows almost exactly the same routine though each love story has its own symbols and dynamic that creates an atmosphere that will never be the same on two weddings. I try to make those differences palpable in my work.
I am at your disposal if you want to talk to me about your project and your desires
A first exchange obviously does not commit you to anything!
LUXEMBOURG WEDDING VENUES
I had the opportunity to discover some of the beautiful estates of Luxembourg thanks to the events I worked on there. Among these pretty "neighboring" places are the abbey of Neumünster in the heart of the Grund in Luxembourg-city, Mondorff Orangery or the Moulin d'Altwies. My photo services can also lead me to travel through the Grand Duchy to reach more distant places such as the (magnificent) castles of Bourscheid, Vianden or Urspelt. I regularly cross the border for weddings or photoshoots so do not hesitate to contact me regardless of the place you have chosen for your beautiful event!
I've always loved writing - I've been very active in the wonderful world of Fanfiction for years - and I wanted to link these editorial inclinations with my taste for photography. I write about my services, about the world of marriage, I share thoughts, the fruit of certain research I have done on several aspects of photography... I welcome you in this joyful mayhem!
