Hello! My name is Gaëlle, I’m a professional photographer with a passion for capturing life’s most beautiful moments, enabling people to keep a visual narrative of their special day.
I strongly believe that the art of photography lies in the ability to capture a fleeting moment - a gesture of love, a tear of joy, a hug between friends - in its purest and most unadulterated form.
I thrive from the challenge of being able to blend into the background and narrate the story of each individual wedding in the most organic and unrestrained way. I work to capture more than a picture; to capture a moment, a feeling, a thought.
It is with this philosophy that I work discreetly and efficiently to snap up every detail of your big day, immortalising real moments to be reminisced for years to come.
I am passionate about everything I do as a wedding photographer: from creating a great working rapport with my clients to ensure that their day is as relaxed and free-flowing as possible; to artfully capturing pure emotions, small gestures and loving details in the most natural and reflective way.
My expertise and skills will be completely at your disposal to focus on the details that matter most to you on this day, those which make your wedding so intrinsically yours.
My passion for photography came to light when I was 15 years old and began experimenting with the process of developing photos in a dark room. It was in that moment that I discovered my passion for encapsulating real life in the art of film, a passion which only continued to grow as I did.
Since that pivotal moment in my youth I have been ardently working within the field. After pursuing studies in Applied Arts (Nantes, France) and Graphic Arts (Quimper, France), I began my professional career within photography as a photojournalist for Boston’s Canton Newspaper in the USA, acting as a mirror to the world. Aspiring to develop my technique and expertise within photography, I then furthered my studies at RMIT in Melbourne, Australia where I won two greatly prestigious awards for my work (Victorian Photography Student of the Year, 2001 - Gold and Silver awards).
In 2001, highly-qualified and ready to take on the world, I returned to Europe and established my art in London. While there, I became actively involved in projects with big brands such as Tesco and Vittel before being hired as a C41 film developer by Tapistry MM (a lab in SoHo), where I was responsible for all C41 development, applying traditional darkroom techniques of colour and development. During this time I rubbed shoulders and worked with the biggest names in fashion and music photography, including; Kevin Westemberg, Miles Aldridge, Derek Henderson and many others.
After entering the field of wedding photography in 2008, I have been fortunate to win numerous renowned international photography awards for my creative and natural style.
I proudly hold the following prestigious awards for my works:
