Wedding photographer in France

By your side for this big day

I am a wedding photographer in France since 2012, but my destinations also include Switzerland and Europe.

I am constantly looking for simple, authentic and refined photographes. I like soft and delicate colors, therefore I only use natural light for my photos, it is fresh and has unique pastel colors.

FROM SMALL MOMENTS TO AN UNFORGETTABLE MEMORY

With my photos, I like immortalizing authentic moments, I intervene as few as possible and try to stay discreet.

Giving you a memory which corresponds to you cannot be improvised. That’s why I like discussing with you, asking you questions to get to know you and establish a trustful relationship. It is the key to transcribe in every single detail your history, to capture your looks, your smiles, your emotion…

How I see
a wedding day

Candid moments.

My vision of photography is to immortalize real, spontaneous and candid shoots. It is about moments captured on the spot and authentic. I will also advise you if needed.

A dream
comes true
QUAND JE SUIS À TES CÔTÉS

Softness.

My photos have soft, pastel and bright colors. You will find this light and airy photographic style in each of your photo.

Loving you
is all I wanna do

YOU, ME & NOTHING ELSE MATTERS

Details.

I give a lot of importance to all the details that accompany you on your wedding day. Your decoration, your gown, your flowers… The details are often chosen with care, and it is therefore an integral part of the memories that I wish to give you of your day.

Calm & discreet.

I make myself as discreet as possible, by my attitude, but also by my outfit, I am indeed dressed like any of your guests so that you can forget my presence and that each moment remains natural. I will nevertheless be able to guide you and accompany you so that the photographs are the most beautiful as possible.

I said yes
TO YOU AND THIS ADVENTURE

With love.

A loving smile, a passionate look, a tender caress… I seek to retranscribe all your love and the emotions of this beautiful event. It is indeed your love which gathered all of us, so let’s pay a tribute to love!

Preparation & advice

A large part of my work takes place before your wedding. In collaboration with your wedding planner if you have one, or just with you, I give you all my best advice from my point of view as a photographer so that you live a serene day, without stress, which will result in better photos. I analyze the specific light conditions of the place in order to optimize the quality of the photos.

I study the composition of your family, your brides and mens of honor, and your closest friends to be sure to capture all your privileged moments by their side.

Processing your photos

Once the party is over, the biggest part of my work is then just beginning. I save your photos very carefully on several hard disks to prevent any bad eventuality of loss. I then cull your photos. I look at them one by one and select all the most beautiful photos to deliver you. There is no limit to the number of photos I can give you, if the photo is good, it will be delivered!
For the post production, the idea is to embellish one by one, each of your photos. I correct the colorimetry and the light to add a soft and luminous style which corresponds exactly to what you can see on my website. No bad surprises, all photos are consistent with this style. I straighten the, erase the superfluous elements but I never erase what has to do with the physique (except for scratches or spots), you are so beautiful as you are! Finally, I reorganize the photos in an order that will tell exactly your day, faithful to as it was.

How to choose the best photographer for your wedding in France?

Photographe mariage lyon Julien Bonjour

1. Define the style of photos you like

My photography style is bright and airy. I give a lot of importance to the environment of your wedding. The atmosphere that emerges is elegant. Some would define this style as “fine art”, but I prefer not to put a label on my work.

2. Define your budget

In seeking your wedding photographer, you will find all prices. But be aware that price and quality are often correlated. My prices take into account my experience, the time of preparation and exchange to help you plan your wedding from a photographic point of view, the analysis of the place and its light, the energy deployed on your big day, because each moment of your day is considered at its true value, and I capture each moment. The culling and post production of each of your photographs. The love of a job well done is always included in my service too!

3. Contact 2 or 3 photographers whose you love their work

It is not necessary to contact 20 photographers, as you may feel overwhelmed. Concentrate on a smaller number so that each meeting is a pleasure. Check their availability and what they offer in their services. And most importantly, make sure you have a good feeling with your photographer, after all, they will be by your side throughout your wedding day!

4. Ask to see complete wedding galleries

To avoid any disillusionment, it’s better to check the quality of work of a photographer on a complete wedding. Do you recognize yourself entirely in their universe? Do you also like party pictures?

With social networks you have access to a small selection of photos, but does the rest of the day match your expectations?

5. Sign a contract

This is one of the most important points. A contract will protect you in case of unforeseen events and will avoid any inconvenience. If you don’t sign any document, and your photographer doesn’t show up on your wedding day, you will unfortunately have no recourse. A contract is a non-negotiable security for a serene preparation and big day.

As far as I’m concerned, after signing the contract and receiving the deposit, your date will be reserved with me, and we will be able to start the rest of the process. I can’t wait!

6. Trust and enjoy

The hard part is over. Now trust your photographer and don’t worry about anything, they will take care of everything!

Kind words from newlyweds

avis photographe mariage lyon

A poetry full of emotions

Whoever you are, whatever your “style” is and the moment for which you contact Julien, he will be able to capture with delicacy and discretion the emotion of each moment. A real poetry emerges from each photograph, his know-how is really inimitable and irreplaceable. For us it was during an unforgettable couple session (I think his fingers are still frozen, poor him) and then during our wedding where his discretion was incredible (some guests still wonder who was the official photographer). If you’re looking for someone who will make the most of the great moments of your life, look no further! You have found the right person.

Cecilia & Emmanuel

A endearing couple

Just thank you!

We originally came across Julien’s website while looking for a photographer for our wedding. As we browsed through the site, we fell in love with the style, the light, and the beauty of the photos. In the end, we did a pregnancy session, a birth session, and we are looking forward to having Julien immortalize our wedding through his camera! Thank you for our photos. They are absolutely everything we hoped for!

Frequently asked questions

How to book a date for our wedding?

Please fill in the form in the contact tab and give me as many details as possible about your wedding, your wishes, your story…
I will then send you my wedding collections with potential travel and accommodation expenses.
IIf my offer meets your expectation, we can then meet to discuss about your wedding day. Many of the future brides and grooms I meet do not live in the area, and long-distance meetings also allow us to get to know each other. This meeting is of course not binding.
After this meeting, you can then send me the signed contract as well as the deposit to book the date. Without both a signed contract and a deposit, no date will be booked.

Can you travel?

I’m a wedding photographer in France, but I’m happy to travel all over Europe and Switzerland. I am French-Swiss and absolutely love getting back to Switzerland for any couple. I also love to discover new places, whether they are luxurious or in the middle of nowhere, so yes, I am happy to travel! We will then study together the best transportation.

How long after the wedding may we wait for our photos?

As soon as possible! I like to be able to give you the photos while your wedding memories are still fresh. The turnaround is about 3 weeks for the photos to be available in your private online gallery.

How do you work during the wedding day?

My goal as a wedding photographer is to give you a testimony of your day.
Following our appointments, I will know what is important to you, the moments, the guests and the family members present… I will be able to immortalize these important moments of the ceremony, the cocktail… Generally, I intervene little and I make myself as discreet as possible to leave you the most natural memories.
However, I do not hesitate to advise you or to propose you poses if I feel that it becomes necessary. The goal is to deliver you the most beautiful photos.

Julien
