Jean-Baptiste Chauvin | Paris Wedding Photographer


Being your wedding photographer means also knowing how to support you before and during the wedding so that you can experience your day in the best possible way. I am by your side all day like a friend, who, in addition to capturing the important moments of this day, assists you with kindness, guiding you through the highlights of your wedding.

I am committed to building connections with your loved ones from the start of the day, so that everyone feels as comfortable as possible, to create the best images where each person appears natural and authentic.

My approach is primarily documentary. Without intervening in the action, I seek to highlight emotions while working on the aesthetics of your photos, to deliver powerful images of these significant moments at the end of this day.

Here are the 3 essential elements for a wedding photograph:


Whether the emotion is expressed through tears, exchanged glances, shouts of joy… it is these emotions and frozen moments that will bring your images to life. Therefore, it is crucial for me to focus on capturing and highlighting the emotions that you and your guests will share during your wedding.

The word « photographer » means writing with light. By definition, light is the primary tool of a photographer.

It is light that will enhance your images. My expertise allows me to make the best use of it for your photos, whether it’s natural light or artificial light (indoor lighting, flash, etc.).

This final key element will allow for the creation of visually striking images. The search for overlapping planes, the work on framing, and the balance of the photo are elements that will bring aesthetics and strength to your images.

As you can imagine, a professional (like any other service provider) cannot afford to make mistakes on your wedding day. The same applies to you when choosing your service providers.

I would like to highlight two important elements in your selection process :

– Meet your photographer : It is essential to ensure that the connection is good, that trust is established, and that there is a good rapport.

– Go beyond the portfolio : Ask to see a complete wedding reportage or a set of photos from the same wedding. This will give you a more comprehensive idea of the photographer’s work quality and will not limit you to just the « tip of the iceberg. »

Indeed, it is not difficult for a photographer who has been working for years to compile a very attractive portfolio. However, this does not guarantee the overall quality of their work. Essentially, you could have 5 or 10 very beautiful photos from a wedding, while the rest could be very disappointing.

During our meeting, I propose to share complete wedding reportages with you, showing all the stages of the day. In the meantime, I invite you to view the slideshows at the bottom of the page. I participate in various types of weddings (traditional, secular, Jewish, Indian…). These slideshows alone do not fully represent my work but give you an overview of a full day’s reportage.


The pursuit of creative images is a constant focus. Couple photos in an urban setting, for instance, allow for the creation of these less « reportage » oriented images, yet they are equally interesting to include in your photos.

Your wedding is also the perfect opportunity to obtain what will likely be your most beautiful couple photos.

Since light plays a very important role in photography, it’s ideal to choose the best time of day for your couple photos. The perfect time slot is around the cocktail hour (in summer).

No need to know how to pose! Throughout this mini session, you will be guided on many points (body position, head, hands, gaze…) so that your photos maintain a natural and spontaneous look.

Sometimes, future brides and grooms ask me about the importance of photographing the evening part of their wedding. They wonder about the value of including these photos in their reportage.

My answer is unequivocal : What is a wedding without a party?

These photos are absolutely essential in my eyes. Your reportage must tell the story of this part of the day that concludes your wedding with energy and excitement!

Moreover, from a technical perspective, only an experienced professional can cover this part of the day due to the lack of light and the necessary mastery of artificial lighting.

We live in the digital age and are inundated with digital photos. Your wedding photos need to stand out! Technologies evolve, CDs disappear, USB ports change, the JPEG format tends to disappear… Computing is fallible, and it is difficult to ensure good preservation on a digital medium.

Wedding albums are carefully crafted and assembled in professional photography workshops that collaborate with photographers from around the world. Printed on silver halide photographic paper, they are designed with quality materials, offering a beautiful presentation and remarkable longevity for your photos.

They represent an investment in your family heritage of images that you will cherish for a lifetime. As a wedding photographer, I highly recommend these albums for your photo reportage. Several options will be presented to you during our meeting.
