I discovered photography as a child, when I was still living at the gates of Brittany. Today, I have the chance to come back regularly to Ille-et-Vilaine and of course to Rennes as part of my job as a wedding photographer.
Terms and conditions for photography services in
The main difference between the different formulas that I propose to the bride and groom is the time of presence on the wedding day, and consequently the minimum number of photos rendered (higher if I am present longer on the D-day). The point is to choose the service that best fits their desires and their schedule. Sometimes I can refine the service a few weeks later if the day's schedule changes.
The photos are given via an online gallery. I also send to the bride and groom a small personalized box containing some prints of their wedding and a USB key containing their reportage. In addition, I try to keep the weddings on several storage media on my side in case of problem of the bride and groom with their copy.
Of course, my photos are my best advertisement, and I'm obviously always happy to share photos from the weddings I'm lucky enough to cover. However, no photos from a wedding are ever released until the bride and groom have been able to validate their gallery and confirm their approval. Allowing them to approve the broadcast and letting them control their image contributes to the relationship of trust necessary for the smooth running of the service!

My approach to wedding photography
I was trained by my own wedding photographer, so the qualities I was looking for at the time of my own wedding are those I strive to have today to accompany the brides and grooms who trust me! I launched my professional activity with her agreement and continue today to seek her opinion on my work in order to continue to question it and improve constantly!
According to me, a good wedding photo service is based on a healthy relationship with the bride and groom, based on trust and communication. The goal is to be accessible and to reassure the couple that it is normal to have doubts and worries, and that they are always right to share them with me. My role is to accompany them as well as possible, which is only possible when the exchanges are easy and allow to elaborate exactly the photo service they want.
As far as photography is concerned, I always prefer the reportage style, essentially made up of spontaneous photos. On a wedding day, I try to be discreet most of the time in order to capture the moments of complicity and emotion of the people present. I can be more directive at the request of the bride and groom, or at certain specific moments of the wedding. The couple session, for example, can quickly become an anxious moment because it is an unusual and intimidating exercise, hence the importance of having a photographer able to guide you and help you relax so that you can make the most of the moment.
Rennes and my first steps as a wedding photographer
Rennes, and more broadly Brittany, have had an important role in my journey as a photographer.
Before I even considered making it my profession, I travelled a lot in Brittany during vacations, weekends, family walks. My very first pictures were of Breton landscapes (well, when I say "landscape", it was mainly rocks, the sea, the sea crashing on rocks, rocks in close-up, etc).
(Please be kind to the 13 year-old me).
Later, at my wedding, I met my photographer who works mostly in Brittany. I covered my first weddings with her, and then I came back to the area for more weddings, this time as a professional photographer.
Today, I am lucky enough to come regularly to Ille-et-Villaine and the Rennes area as part of my job, to accompany the bride and groom and to enjoy the Breton landscapes (be reassured, I tried to get out of the rock/sea/sea crashing on the rocks triptych)
Getting married around Rennes
Getting married in Brittany, what a great idea! I am of the same opinion: I grew up at the gates of Brittany, I moved away for my studies and then for my professional life, and I had only one objective since then, to come back to the West of France. Today, I travel more and more for weddings, which leads me to discover many beautiful places (and to get lost at 3am in the Breton countryside without any network, so without GPS, an extremely pleasant anecdote).
If you decided to get married in the area around Rennes, it is even possible that you get married there (you do well, the salons of the Hôtel de Ville, where weddings are celebrated, are magnificent). When the bride and groom celebrate their civil union in the city, I always suggest that they take a moment, before or after the ceremony, to take some pictures in the streets, especially if there are some places that are symbolic for them (it can go from a nice street to a little café to a bench in a garden).
As far as wedding domains are concerned, Rennes and the Ille-et-Villaine region do not lack any! Around the city, we can mention the Domaine des Longrais. North of Rennes, the Manoir de Terre Rouge, the Château de la Rouerie or the Château de la Giraudais and the Château de la Motte Beaumanoir host magnificent receptions. As part of Ille-et-Vilaine has its feet in the water, I also had the opportunity to go to the coast for photo sessions, especially in the beautiful city of Saint-Malo whose ramparts and bay make a perfect backdrop for a romantic photo session. Some estates in the area, such as Montmarin, offer a sumptuous seaside setting.
To know more about me, you can also visit my blog. You will find articles about my photo services or about the wedding world in general. I also talk about photo culture, wedding fashion, organization, in short, everything that interests me!
Every contact with a couple starts with a meeting: at my home (which gives me an excuse to make cakes) or by telephone. These talks are essential for me to understand the wishes of the bride and groom, but above all to ensure that they feel confident with me. It is impossible to commit to such an important service without taking the time to check that we are all on the same wavelength!
