The best moments of your wedding aren’t staged; they happen naturally, and they like to hide. You need a photographer who can blend in the background, and then pounce like a ninja to get you that shot.
Capture what is happening organically, those little moments you are missing.
Jump in to direct you, just from time to time, when a good photo op presents itself.
Create timeless pictures you’ll be happy to show your children, and their children one day.
Work alone as much as possible, and only use flash at very low settings when absolutely necessary.
Make you miss 2 hours of your wedding day to produce pictures that you’ll never look at.
Take pictures that are forced, out of character, that don’t feel like you. Use filters and gizmos that will be out of fashion 2 years from now.
Intrude on your wedding with all kinds of assistants and equipment.
I concentrate on the ladies, because, let’s face it, I am French. Photos start 30-60 minutes before you’re ready to walk out, so plenty of time for those dress & shoe shots, plus lots of candids of you and your entourage. Boys, I haven’t forgotten you. I just need less time with you.
This is when I turn the ninja stealth to high: I don’t use flash, I don’t get in the way, I do my best to merge into the background without missing the key shots.
This is typically the only one-on-one time I will get with you all day. Try to carve out 15 – 30 minutes with me in the last 2 hours before sunset.
Tip: if sunset is during dinner, let’s escape for 5 minutes between 2 courses.
In all the hustle, bustle, booze and best wishes of a reception, keep me for the first 30-45 minutes of dancing. After that, you’ll score great blackmail material—but usually not great pictures.
Tip: try not to cram your reception venue, and make sure the background behind you is visually pleasing (no bussing station please).
"Loic is simply the best. Our photos turned out amazing, and he was inconspicuous. We did not see him once! Unlike those cheap, annoying photographers who act like paparazzi and ruin the wedding for everyone. His pictures are classy and timeless. Go nowhere else! We still are wondering how he got some of our shots!" -Mona & David
"Loic was the perfect photographer and we could not be happier! His efforts went above and beyond in our planning sessions, the engagement shoot, and the other items leading up to the wedding day. He was very helpfull throughout the whole process, leading us step by step and building the timeline for the big day. His photos are true works of art capturing real moments and their emotions which make it really hard to pick even the top 50 photos. We truly loved working with him and want to get married again just to shoot with him again!!" -Deanna & Ryan"
Loic was exceptional! Very thorough in his preparation for our big day, asking a lot of great questions to tailor the day and pictures set to our needs. On the day it was a pleasure to have him around us, and felt very natural. He captured so many key pictures in the build up to the ceremony and had scouted the neighborhood for key locations, for a quick offsite photo session after the ceremony. These made for some truly memorable pictures. Great working with Loic and we strongly recommend him!!" -Laura & Adam
