Hi there, I am Ian the photographer behind A Very French Wedding. I am based in SW France but I cover weddings throughout France and the UK. I have been a professional photographer for over 14 years, I studied photography at Salisbury College of Art where I gained a degree in photography. I live in France with my wife Louise and our two adorable dogs in a beautiful part of South West France.
I really love the challenge of photographing wedding day's, I like to be able to tell the story from start to finish, I see myself as being extremely lucky in that I am able to combine my passion for photography with a love of working with a wide variety of amzing people and visiting beautiful locations all over France and the UK.
i'm a fun and an easy going person to work with, i try my hardest to not get in the way or to draw attention to myself when I am shooting, but years of experience have taught me where to be at exactly the right time on the wedding day so nothing is missed, an essential skill only experience can give you.
I like give my couples a really stress free experience from the time they entrust me to photograph their wedding day, to the delivery of the final images, I am always happy to help if asked for advice and always open to suggestions.
All my equipment is professional standard, two Canon 5D MK111 bodies and all lenses are L series with Canon and Elinchrom portable battery flash units.
Above all I want my images to have a beautiful light, natural feel that express the joy and the excitement of the day and I want them to reflect the emotion of the moment and the unconditional love between two people.
I hope that we can share your day together.
