HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE YOUR FIRST NAME ?

Click

My first name has an E at the end, it looks like Stephanie, but pronounce it Stephan.

STEPHANE, ARE YOU REALLY FRENCH ?

Yes, born and raised in Paris in 1980.

HOW DID YOU GET INTO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY ?

I first started working for an Architectural Photography studio in 2001, after graduating from Photography School in Paris.
Architecture photography is all about composition. I would go around the city photographing buildings and structures with those big cameras that you see in old movies.
Although I gained lots of experience in photography technique and image processing in the dark room, I always felt I was missing something.
In 2004, I started working for a Wedding Photography studio and shot my first wedding.
From then on I fell in love with the beautiful world of Wedding Photography, full of intense emotions and experiences.

WHAT IS YOUR PHILOSOPHY ?

Experience has taught me that the only way to get beautiful wedding portraits is to make a connection. It is important that I reach a connection with you, so I can ensure your happiness with your wedding photos.
My goal is to create an environment where you feel comfortable with each other, make you look natural in front of my camera and capture '' that look '', '' that smile '' and all those beautiful feelings that you share with your fiance and that make you who you really are.
Remember - your wedding day only happens once.
So if you like this approach and feel like meeting with me,
contact me so we can talk about the most beautiful day of your life !!!

WHAT IS YOUR SHOOTING STYLE?

If I had to choose 3 words to describe my photography style, I would probably say ...
Sensual, Sincere and Scenic.
Sensual, because there is so much beauty in capturing two people's desire towards each other, not only physically, but in that of spending the rest of their life together.
Sincere, I will never ask you to act unnatural in front of my camera, I will adjust to your personalities and photograph you as you are.
Scenic, because I love beautiful landscapes and love to incorporate a couple in such environments.
Some say my style is dramatic ... Well, they might be right, I do not ask my couples to look at the camera and say cheese ...I tend to let them be themselves and just connect with each other, those moments are often very quiet and heavy in emotions ... To be honest, those are my favorite.
At the end of the day, I am truly inspired by people, each couple is unique, each couple shares a special love, this is what drives me ... your true connection.
