From the preparations to the end of the day, Patrick Chatelain will blend in with your guests. Its objective is to tell your wedding day with natural and spontaneous images. It will immortalize all the key moments of the day but it will not stop there. It will also take pictures of all the things you won't have time to see in the stress of your day. All those moments which only last a few fractions of a second but which make your wedding unique. The laughter, the mother's tears, the knowing gaze between you ... He will also take all the small details (decoration, clothes ...) that you will have taken months to prepare and that we will not see in general photos.
In addition to the wedding fortait, you have many options including the "engagement" session, the "Trash-the-Dress / Day After" session, the "Bridal boudoir" session .... which will allow you to take magnificent images in outside on D-Day in a more serene way and thus allow you to prepare yourself well and to better enjoy your guests.
It is also possible to rent a photobooth / selfie terminal with instant prints that will liven up your cocktail party and evening. Choose your photo format on the Photo booth template or as a Postcard version. The photo will be stored and can be printed in one or more copies (one photo for your guestbook, another as a souvenir for the guests). A mask can be made to personalize the prints according to the theme, the colors of your wedding as well as with your name. You can rent this photo kiosk whether it is your wedding photographer or not. You can pick it up in Bordeaux or Pau or it can be delivered to you. He only has one so remember to book it well in advance.
If the number of guests justifies it, Patrick can also come accompanied by a second photographer or videographer to double the looks and sensibilities for an even more complete report of your wedding day.
Do you also want sound in addition to images? Accompanied by a collaborator working with the same philosophy, it offers video reports (cinematography) which will be produced using the latest cinematographic techniques.
About a week after your wedding, you will have access to a private internet gallery at your disposal so that you can share this magnificent day with those present or absent. A beautiful kit with USB key will be given to you later with all the royalty-free images.
