We have a distinctive vision of the art of photography. Our mission is to tell your story based on one day in your life. Yet, an entire relationship can’t be summarized in twenty-four hours.
What you have is special, unique, and for all to see in the way you look at each other, the way you touch, the way you interact with each other, the intimacy and habits you share. All of those things make who you are as a couple. To make sure to grasp all the details
We find it a must to get to know you, so you can feel free and be entirely at ease with us. It is difficult to let go and face the camera held by a stranger, isn’t it? For everything to go smoothly, We intend to share this special year in your life, from the planning to the big day.
By understanding who you are, by getting to know each other !
We can also help you make the day of your dreams come true, using for example with Pinterest shares, business contacts, or scheduling.
We want your wedding/elopement day to reflect the sincerity and intensity of your love story. Not some posed, unrealistic version of who you are ! We want to go beyond that. LET'S CREATE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL TOGETHER
• Do you work as a team ?
It depends of what you want for your wedding / elopement ! If you want to hire 1 photographer then it will be Cédric or me. If you want to hire 2 photographers then it will be us as a team <3 We also have an assistant photographer and a videographer.
• How many weddings do you take per year ?
We receive more than 100 requests for reservations every year from all over the world and we do not take more than 20 weddings per year. Why? Because we have this desire to really take care of each couple by giving them quality time. So we focus on quality not quantity; we therefore prefer projects close to our heart, couples who share our philosophy of life and who wish to live exhilarating experiences around the world !
• How does it work to book an elopement in Provence/French riviera?
We create LOVE IS PRETTY™ to share our passion about our region and live amazing adventures with couples who wants to discover Provence and French riviera. Just tell us what is your project and we 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 !
• Where are you based out of ? Do you travel for weddings or couples ever travel to you for shoots?
We are located near Aix en Provence but we are above all travelers :) So YES! We do shoot wedding around the world. This year we have been travelling to New York, Scotand, Provence, French riviera, Greece, Spain and LA. Wherever you are in the world we come to you.
• 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 we shoot, how busy we are with travel schedule...Typically, for sessions it takes 4 weeks or less and weddings take 8 weeks or less. We try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure we give time to each and every image needs.
• Do you help in the planning wedding/elopement process?
YES YES YES !! We’ve shot hundreds of weddings (and we are married !) so we know the industry very well! If you need recommendations, and if there’s anything we can do to help you with, just let us know !
• How can we book our date with you ?
To book your date, you must send us 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 we would like to say YESIIIIIIII to everyone we cannot… We must therefore make a choice. Finally, the couples that have returned these items within 48 hours have priority over others :)
• Do you give raws unedited images?
No, as I believe that editing is 50% on our job, it's the magic that goes into images and without this huge step our pictures are only halfway done. We promise to never leave any picture out that you’ll want, and if you feel we missed delivering a photo, just ask! We are more than happy to check back through the 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.
