you’re about to get married in south of France and you’re concerned because it’s complicated to find a videographer whose work you like and who can communicate in English.
So no, I’m not quite bilingual and I have a strong French accent, but my level of English is sufficient for us to understand each other.
It is very important that we take the time to discuss your wedding day, your wishes and even your relationship. Because it is by getting to know each other that I will be able to truly capture a piece of your story in your wedding film, and create the memory of an exceptional stay that you shared with your loved ones, under the southern sun of France.
Whether you want your film to be rather romantic or completely crazy… or a mixture of all this. I can only know that if we go a long way together. And this adventure begins now!
This renaming is the result of a turning point in my own thinking about the “wedding film” concept, about my profession. When I started out, I wanted to make the most beautiful film possible, a souvenir mainly based on visual and technical feats.
And then over time, always looking to evolve, I gave thought to the question of narrative. And as I wanted to follow this path, I realized that I could offer much more to my newlyweds. An emotional dimension whose surface I had barely touched until now.
At each wedding, I inevitably learn to discover my newlyweds, as well as the bonds that unite them with their families and friends. I learned to look beyond every gesture, every little attention.
Because behind every word, every attitude, every laugh, there is a common story, a common adventure.
When you spend between 12 and 16 hours with a person, you learn a lot about their life, and even their little habits.
And through these images we take, we realize that we are no longer just witnesses… We have a real role as historians.
As of today, I think that from a visual point of view, I am not far from what can be qualified as best. And the path that must be followed for my images to improve naturally is not unknown to me.
Now, I would like to intensify my efforts and focus my eye on moments that are not always the most spectacular, but which are real moments of sharing with your loved ones.
We often think that the secret of a good wedding film is to be beautiful from start to finish, accompanied by your favorite music. But when you think about it, it is not the beauty of an image that makes you feel emotions, but rather what it takes you to, what it reminds you of.
A beautiful image that is meaningless and devoid of emotion has only a limited impact on us. But an image, even a technically average one, that lets you dive back into your past, that tells a part of your story, is the one that will make you vibrate.
So finally, what is a good wedding film?
To me, it’s a beautiful documentary that transcribes your truth. And it is by incorporating specific elements of your story that you will obtain a truly unique film.
