Wedding photographer and videographer for destination weddings and elopements in Paris, Provence and the French Riviera


We have won multiple awards and have been very proud to have been published in Elle, Condé Nast Brides (USA), The Knot Magazine (USA), Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks, One Fab Day (UK), Rock My Wedding (UK), Great Destination Wedding Magazine (Australia), Norwegian Wedding magazine, national Dutch television as well as news websites like The Telegraph and Nu.nl (Netherlands) and many others.


Specialised in intimate destination weddings and luxury elopement and established in 2013.

Renate is a professional photographer specialised in capturing destination weddings throughout western Europe that are as lavish as they are intimate, serving couples who envision a beautiful celebration with their absolute favourite people.

My photography style is light and airy, with a focus on capturing natural moments, so the authentic connections of my couples who get married in epic locations can be remembered through fine art wedding albums and bespoke wall art. I love to work with brides and grooms, and to enable you to have a visual reminder within your home of your Europe wedding memories.

I have a background in theatre, travel, visual culture, directing and storytelling, won multiple awards, traveled to 40+ states and have been photographing destination weddings (in 17 different countries) for the last 8 years. Although I am based in London and The Netherlands, the majority of my weddings take place in France and Italy…

Wit Photography have shot at venues like The Ritz Paris, Shangri-La Paris, Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, Château Saint Georges, Château Hattonchatel, Château de Lisse, Villa Sola Cabiati (Lake Como), Villa Balbianello (Como), Castello di Potentino (Tuscany, Italy), Villa Cimbrone (Amalfi, Italy), Castell d’Emporda (Spain), The Romanos Luxury Collection Resort (Greece), Palacio de Estoi (Algarve, Portugal) and The Ritz Penha Longa Resort (Lisbon, Portugal). We love to travel and would love to capture your special day in your dream location.

I’m the kind of wedding photographer that believes that the most important thing of a wedding is that you enjoy yourselves and have the most epic day possible. I wouldn’t dream of bothering you with posing while you’re cutting the cake or during your ceremony. If you make sure you enjoy yourself, we will ensure you'll look your best in your photos.

  • We traveled from Minnesota, USA to Paris and Renate was available to take our photos! We had no idea what to expect since we've obviously never met but she was AMAZINGGGGG. She helped us find all the best spots for photos and she was so fun to hang with! Literally would book her again in a heartbeat !!

  • How nice that Renate was present on the happiest day of ours. Having a silent and invisible presence meant we could relax because we were so nervous about the photo moment as we both prefer to be behind the camera than before. But as the photos have become beautiful. Delivered digitally so that we can easily share it with your friends and family. Thank you very much Renate !!
