Wedding photographer in the Riviera Maya & Caribbean

French photojournalist, I moved to Mayan Riviera (Mexico) in 2006 developing my own vision of wedding and portrait photography using my photojournalist experience.

My way of working to capture a wedding : Anticipate all the time to frame the right images, i.e. to be always in the right place at the right time.

This page shows people who trust in my work to capture what they are and what they live.

Fine art underwater portrait Photographer

Since 2009, I started to shoot underwater trash the the dress, taking advantage of my passion for swimming and diving. The Riviera maya has dozen of magical cenotes (natural fresh water pools in the jungle) which are perfect playgrounds to get spectacular underwater portrait.
