• How many weddings do you take per year ?
I receive more than 100 requests for reservations every year from all over the world and I do not take more than 20 weddings per year. Why? Because I travel a lot and I want to keep a balance between work and family life (I am also a wife and a mother of a little boy named Aaron). I have this desire to really take care of each couple by giving them quality time. So I focus on quality not quantity; I therefore prefer projects close to my heart, couples who share my philosophy of life and who wish to live exhilarating experiences over several days preferably in France or abroad.
• Where are you based out of ? Do you travel for weddings or couples ever travel to you for shoots?
I am located near Aix en Provence but I am above all a traveler :) So YES! Wherever you are in the world I come to you. I also have couples from all around the world coming for a shoot in Provence. Check my travel dates this season!
• How does it work to book an elopement in Provence/French riviera?
I create Elopement in Provence™ to share my passion about my region and live amazing adventures with couples who wants to discover Provence and French riviera. Just tell me what is your project and I plan everything for you. What are you into? Wine tasting in a real vineyard in Provence, walking in the calanques of Cassis, exchanging vows at sunset in a secret spot? You will be discovering the most incredible landscapes ever. Non touristic but yet authentic south of France. Just relax and enjoy the view : )
• What is your turnaround time ?
Post-editing is a very important part of photography. The colorimetry, the style, the grain ... In short, all these little things, yet so important, are worked over in a meticulous way because they define an artistic identity, an "eye". The turnaround depends on how much I shoot, how busy I am, my travel schedule, and the holidays....Typically, for sessions it takes 4 weeks or less and weddings take 8 weeks or less. I try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image needs.
• How can we book our date with you ?
To book your date, you must send me a signed contract and a deposit. Without the receipt of these two items, no date is reserved more than 48 hours. There are often several enquiries for the same date and even if I would like to say YESIIIIIIII to everyone I cannot… I must therefore make a choice. Finally, the couples that have returned these items within 48 hours have priority over others :)
• Do you know some great videographers ?
If you plan to hire a videographer that's great! I will provide you a list of talented videographers with whom I have already worked with.
• Do you give raws unedited images?
No, as I believe that editing is 50% on my job, it's the magic that goes into images and without this huge step my pictures are only halfway done. I promise to never leave any picture out that you’ll want, and if you feel I missed delivering a photo, just ask! I’m more than happy to check back through my images and send it over to you. For those who still want to keep the RAW files, you must highlight it at the time of the contract. The RAWs are priced at € 500.
• Do you help in the planning wedding/elopement process?
YES!! I’ve shot hundreds of weddings (and am married myself!) so I know the industry very well! If you need recommendations, and if there’s anything I can do to help you with, just let me know !
