These glances that meet,

A discrete tear of happiness that flows,
A tender gesture so difficult to retain,
The laughter that bursts out
The shadows playing with the light ...
A wedding day is all poetry and much more.

My name is Phil.

I am a passionate photographer based in Paris but ready to follow you to the end of the earth!

Please take a tour of the site and discover my universe.

A wedding photographer since 2014, my approach to wedding photography has undergone quite a change. Today, I am searching for a happy balance between candid shots and directed photography.


For instance, during the couple's photo session, I may have to direct the bride and groom so they feel more comfortable and, above all, remain natural and happy. Group photographs will require a little more coordination but the spontaneity comes back quickly anyway, once people are positioned.


And everything else (ceremony, cocktail, party, etc.) will be fun and free-flowing photographs taken on the spot. The intention is to capture the emotions and beauty of your most treasured day.

Same-sex marriage has been legal in France since May 2013. I began photographing Paris gay couples and weddings. I pay a lot of attention to capturing the unique beauty of LGBTQ couples Love Stories. My Paris Rainbow Instagram project is dedicated to LGBTQI+ love stories photography. In France, you can see my works in my Rainbow Love Stories Exhibition at Centre LGBTQI+ Paris. As an LGBT-friendly photographer, I am delighted to offer you beautiful images of your same-sex marriage, an extraordinary gay and lesbian couple elopement, or your romantic LGBT moment in Paris. You can contact me here or via WhatsApp to photograph your Love Story in Paris!

Whether it is the pleasure of having beautiful pictures of yourself for either personal or professional career use or even for an actor or model's portfolio. Whatever the need, I would be happy to take your portrait in a studio or outdoor location.

Alright guys, this post for those of you who take hundreds of pictures of beautiful Paris sights, but only have a few decent pictures of yourself…

- If you are traveling solo and don’t feel comfortable asking strangers to take photos of you,

- If your partner just sucks at taking pictures of you and most of your photos come out with either your eyes closed, with half of your head missing, blurry or outright bad,

- If you want your first (or 20th time) in Paris to be a little extra special,

- If you are celebrating a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, engagement, etc.) or want to surprise your instagram obsessed girlfriend with a cool gift of a lifetime or

- if you just want amazing photos capturing magical Paris moments which will live forever...

… Look no further and reach out to Phil, the Paris photographer. As a hobbyist photographer myself, I can tell you, this dude is simply best of the best, professional among professionals, and sure is incredibly talented!

I’ve done quite of a research before choosing Phil, and after getting my final product from him, I had no doubts that this was one of the best life choices I ever made!

Yes, you can probably get some photographer from Airbnb, and they will probably be great, or you can get that $10 photo from “hit or miss” guy with the red balloons - and this will also make a cool fun memory, but…

If you want high quality photos that you can brag to your friends and family about, pictures that are worthy to be framed and made into photo books - Phil is your guy.

One of the lessons I learned in life, is ‘you get what you pay for’. When you will have a pleasure working with Phil you will realize that this will be money well spent.

When you hire Phil, you don’t just pay for the final product. First, Phil is highly professional and organized - from his first email to me to him delivering the final product. He is responsive, reliable, and punctual - once you hire him, it is guaranteed he will deliver.

Phil’s photography style (“lifestyle”) is simply amazing - he is truly able to capture genuine emotions and freeze them in time, and not just have those standard staged poses and cliché photos.

Phil is so easy to work with (we’ve done quite a few photosessions in our life, and trust me, this guy really knows what he is doing). If you have no idea what you are doing and feel like you have two left feet - he will direct you and make sure he will snap a photo at your best angle. If you are comfortable in front of the camera - he will be sure to catch your best mementos.

Besides his talent and professionalism, he is also funny, easy going and just overall a cool guy!

Needless to say, the final product exceeded all my expectations, and I feel so lucky to be able to share those pictures with my family and friends.

We had a grand time working with Phil from start to finish. He knows the most dreamy locations to capture the most awww-inspiring moments. The quality of the photos are second to none. We received so many lovely compliments on our photography of our time in Paris and our engagement. He is a professional amongst professionals. Couldn't be happier. If you're looking to have your special moments captured, you will be beyond pleased using his services.

My photoshoot with Phil was a wonderful experience. He is professional, kind and made me feel comfortable. The images I received were better than I could have ever I imagined. 5 Star experience all the way! I will definitely book him again next time I visit Paris.

We had an amazing photo shoot with Phil on our family vacation to Paris in August 2021. Phil was easy to connect with via WhatsApp prior to our trip and helped to get me prepared for the potential locations to shoot our photos as well as the types of outfits we may consider. This Paris photographer was very easy during the actual shoot as I had an active five-year-old and a disgruntled husband who hates taking pictures. Somehow he got both of them to comply! The shots that he took of my family turned out beautifully! We are getting so many compliments from friends on social media. There were so many great shots that I don’t know how to narrow it down. Phil, thank you for capturing the joy of our time in Paris! The photos are an amazing keepsake.
