A little bit about me...
Yes, as you can see in one picture, I have been there too. I've done it and I know all about it.... well maybe not all but I know a very good champagne that can help you go through it all with no fear! (By the way, that Champagne is called MATHELIN - L'Orée des Chênes - and NO i don't get free bottles for mentioning it!)
On a more serious note, my name is Eric, I am a professional freelance wedding photographer based in the heart of Essex. Born in France, I developed a passion for photography at an early age, I received my first Polaroid camera at the age of 10 yrs old and started taking photo of my dad playing petanque, my grandpa napping under the Olive tree and my mum making my favourite jam! A few years later, with my camera (upgraded from the Polaroid to a 35mm film camera) I had the chance of travelling around the world, doing some photo journalism and taking photos of people, animals, cities, snapping a farmer on top of the Mountain Range in Philippines, some kids playing domino in a back street of Beijing or simply a beautiful sunset over the Andes in Chile.
I have recently moved back to the UK, bringing my passion and business with me. I am living in a little village of Essex although my work takes me all over the UK and Europe. I am very passionate about photography and especially wedding photography. Capturing that special moment, feeling the love of two people and their families, the tears, the joy, the happiness, a wedding day is a rollercoaster, we go through a lot of emotions and I am here to capture them all. I will be honest with you, during the photos editing of every weddings i have shot, i have had a few tears in front of my computer, don't worry i won't cry at your wedding though as i am too focus with the job, that just happens a few days after, like if I was jet lagged with emotions!
On my brand new website you will find some of the weddings I have shot in France and some most recent ones from the UK! If you like my style of photography and want to have a chat about your wedding plans, I'd love to hear from you.
I have also set-up The Studio in 2017, so I am now able to offer Studio shooting session for more formal portrait, professional headshot, portfolio, social media or simply beautiful memory of your children. You can check out my family and portrait website and/or visit my blog to see my latest work
Beginning of 2018, I was voted best UK travel photographer of the year by The Guardian, i guess until Brexit have been activated for good I will still hold the title, after that who knows.... Check my winning photo on The Guardian or Check my Trip to Costa Rica on The Guardian
Couples who book me want photographs of their wedding, but not necessarily a wedding photographer. They want someone who will blend in, and be in all the right places at all the right moments, to capture the interaction between their family and friends, gathered together on one day.
I don’t operate as a silent figure, dodging in and out of the shadows. I blend in with the guests, will happily chat with everyone whilst discreetly documenting the day for you. As well as the natural reportage photos of your day, I pride myself on classic, creative portraits of the bride and groom.
By immersing myself in your Essex wedding, and not simply watching from the sidelines, I am perfectly placed to capture the fleeting moments which pass in the blink of an eye. If the natural documentation of your day is important to you, and you want images which are evocative, cinematic and full of expression, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch and tell me about your day.
