Paris Wedding Photographer and Videographer

Hi there!

My name is Jeremie and I am a storytelling traveling wedding photographer and videographer based in France on the west coast and in Paris

(In English En Francais passez en Francais ici)

I'm Jeremie

Former aerospace engineer that studied and worked in Europe, Canada and the US, I am a storytelling traveling wedding and family photographer/videographer, based in Paris and the west coast of France (Vendée) where I have a studio.

My favorite things include sunsets, my kids' laughs, playing music, witness true love, traveling & meeting people to tell there stories.

Travel & photography have taken me to over 15 countries on 5 continents, from the cold Iceland & Sweden, to the beaches of tiny islands lost in the middle of the Indian Ocean..

My approach is to document your day in a photojournalistic and authentic way, capturing emotion in all the softness & poetry of the moment, without being noticed. I also love having fun with adventurous couples that make me go on hikes to spectacular places.

Happy to share my photos with you, and excited to hear about your projects!

Award-winning Wedding photographer

I specialize in fine art and timeless storytelling wedding photography, with an emphasis on emotion and lighting. My work is best known for its subtle blending of light and airy poetic images and more contrasty photos and deep moments: joyful, natural and emotional photography.
I also shoot a lot of photo sessions, both lifestyle natural light couple, family or portrait sessions, or more posed yet modern studio photo shoots. I absolutely love working with light, modeling light, whether it is a natural sunrise over the ocean over the shoulders of a couple or artificial light for a maternity shoot in studio, I just love that process of tailoring light to achieve a vision. Add a hint of love and emotion, and you got a great photo, and great memories to cherish forever.
Since my first wedding in 2010, I have photographed hundreds of weddings, elopements and photo sessions in France and worldwide, and I always strive to create natural yet impactful images and portraits.
In 2019 and 2020, after being selected as a member of several associations with the best photographers in the world, I have been honored to received multiple international awards for my work: best reportage wedding photography (This Is Reportage), best artistic wedding portrait (AGWPJA), best engagement photography (WPJA), best lifestyle portrait (Lifestyle Pro Awards) and best artistic maternity portrait (AFNS Awards).
To date, I have yet never submitted my work to any publication or Magazine, but it has still been published numerous times, either by brides submissions or Magazine requests.
My style is a mix of soft and poetic light, and at times more contrasty of colorful images and moments. I do believe that all creative tools can and must be used to tell each and every unique story, without being too tied to a rigid photography genre, but rather always keeping my own and unique style.

English-speaking Photographer in Paris

I strive to create stunning wedding photos for bride and grooms getting married in Paris, from all over the world and not just France or Europe. I have been working almost full-time in english since 2010, I do work with a lot of international clients and you won’t need to learn French for your wedding day! If you live in Paris It’ll be my pleasure to meet you in person, but I am also well-equipped to virtually meet with Paris wedding clients that live abroad.

Wedding Photographers in France, west coast

Serving Nantes, Angers, Le Mans, Poitiers, Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Ile d’Yeu, Ile de Noirmoutier, Vendée, Pays-de-la-Loire, Brittany, the French riviera and France in general.

Based in the Vendée (west coast, Les Sables d’Olonne, near La Roche sur Yon) since 2019 but approximately visiting my family here 10 times a year for more than 20 years before that, I have a strong attachment to the french west coast area, and the ocean in general. Even though I shoot all over France, a lot of my weddings are next to the sea, whether it is here, in Brittany, in the south of France, etc. I am very fortunate to live a few minutes from the ocean, work with many extraordinary Vendée vendors, and I’m extremely pleased to be able to help brides coming from all over the world (I know, can you believe it!) to get married in our beautiful area.

Destination Wedding

I am also well-versed in destination weddings, that I have the pleasure to shoot for a few years now. I have been lucky enough to travel to 15 countries on 5 continents, shooting in Canada, the USA, Mauritius Island, the Seychelles Islands, Italy, Corsica, Sweden, Belgium, Greece and even tiny private islands in the Indian Ocean. I am very comfortable traveling to shoot events or photo sessions.

What people say?

The pictures from Jeremie were breathtaking and beautiful. Jeremie met us and took fantastic pictures. Jeremie's ability to speak English was very strong and the fact I couldn't speak French was not an issue as Jeremie was able to lead the photoshoot in English. I would highly recommend Jeremie to anybody wanting beautiful photos. [From Facebook]

We love Paris, and we absolutely love the photoshoot session with Jeremie. He came on time, no delay, very polite, he know how to photograph with kid, and he knows Paris very very well and he is very friendly. At the end of our session, there was a bit of rain, however he know exactly where to toke a photos in case of rain. So weather is not a matter, as long as you have Jeremie with you, you're in a safe hand :)
