I’m Jean-Luc (Founder, Owner & Photographer), a Frenchman originally from a village near Toulouse in the South West region of France. I have lived in Cambridge since 1998, fell in love with the place, and stayed! I am married to Liza and I’m a dad to Zach.

I am mainly a people photographer. I love photographing weddings, I love getting pictures of people at their happiest, I love to capture emotionally charged moments, this is the key to everything. On top of having a great eye, knowing what composition will work, timing and anticipation are everything.

Trust me with your wedding photographs like many other couples have done in the past. You will love your resulting set of images. I am a friendly photographer and I am unobtrusive. My years of experience mean that I know my camera inside out and I know what works and what doesn’t work.

I tend to prefer simple and minimalistic setups to over indulgent and technical ones. I will see something and press the shutter, pause, look around, and I will see something else and photograph it.
