2 Documentary Wedding Photographers...

Jeremy Fiori, portrait, elopement and wedding photographer in France

Happy dad of two little princesses and totally in love with my wonderful wife, life is great with me! Passionate about social photography for a long time, I began as a photographer by taking pictures of the streets and passers-by, their originality and unexpected moments. I am an admirer of the greatest works in this field, like those of Willy Ronis, Henry Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, Diane Arbus, etc… They gave me the taste of aesthetics and the desire to make photographic reports. Therefore, I have been specialized in the elopement and wedding report since 2012, like a documentary photographer. I covered a little over a hundred weddings in 6 years (almost 20/25 wedding weddings per year now) and I love it! Photography, wedding, love, happiness, that's my life! [Angers Wedding Photographer]

Angers marriage reportage photographer Thomas Desmier - France WPJA for Pays de la Loire, Maine-et-Loire

A camera in my hands since the age of 10, my first photos will have the taste of holidays, trips and student nights (with more or less happy results). And still trips (UK, Turkey, Germany ...), faces, Paris, still more faces. The virus is there, well implanted in my head and in my heart, I train myself in photo reporting to improve the technique, and enrich myself culturally as well. I'm going to see Peru and I'm only coming back when I've been around, from Machu Picchu to coastal deserts to the Amazon. Then I spend a lot of time doing photographs of (ecological) buildings in London, Liverpool, Berlin, Hannover ... (serious work in architecture and urbanism agency with pieces of photos in it). I then succumbed to the charms of the Pays de Loire and more precisely of the Angevin region. Angers brought me balance. I enriched my photographic practice and eventually became a professional photographer. The wanderlust and the desire to discover, but with a real engine: people! You! That's what counts above all! people who trust me to capture one of the strongest moments of their lives so that I can make images that matter. Photographs that will remain the medium of your memories, your emotions for a long time. I love taking pictures! especially when you are happy and having fun. Finally, that's why I offer my services to you, brides and grooms, for 6 years and it is not ready to stop so the pleasure is great to be able to follow you during one of the most beautiful days of your life.

WPJA Communiqué: Features
Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more
WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE? If you look up the definition of “elope” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary , you’ll find a plethora of meanings making it quite clear how polarizing the word has become, and how it has transformed and evolved with the passage of time and even personal preference.Read more
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more

But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more? An entirely different genre of wedding, so to speak, is the adventure wedding elopement. This concept...Read more
Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
