About Me... and You!
Aurélie (pronounced oh - reh - lee )
Your loved ones are what matters the most, and I know you want some of your moments captured to treasure and hold close to your heart for the rest of your lives and beyond…
My style is relaxed and candid, and my presence discreet - so you can enjoy your moment whilst I capture what matters the most to you. Being camera shy myself, I avoiding "posing" people too much and combine a personalised documentary approach with a touch of creativity and very little directed posing. That way you (and guests for weddings and family occasions) look like "yourselves" whilst having striking images to remember the occasion.
Whilst mostly using natural light, I also have portable studio lighting available for pet and human portraits.
I have over over 12 years' professional and personal experience capturing life and love, in English and "en Francais": occasions for couples (proposals, engagements, weddings, civil partnerships) and families (maternity, newborn, baby/cake smash, birthdays, christenings, portraits, and of course companion animals who to me are an important part of the family).
I'm "in love with Love", making the most of life and documenting it so the memories are treasured forever and passed on to new generations.
A keen photographer from a young age, I realised the importance of "properly" immortalising those important moments after getting married myself and later welcoming Marcel, our corgi dog, into our family.
If needed, I'll also gladly help with other aspects of planning: preparations, decoration or organising... Finding the perfect location for that proposal... or dog-friendly wedding venue, thanks to my experience in wedding and event planning, as well as in crafts, floristry, travel and fine dining (my other half is a chef who trained in Michelin star restaurants).
I am fully insured (photographic equipment and public liability).
