About me

Artsinfotos Photography | Wedding photography from Key West to the coast of Maine |

Hello, and welcome to my blog

This is an extension of my website : www.artsinfotos.com

My name is Christophe and I am a professional wedding photographer. I spend my time photographing weddings anywhere between Key West and New England.

I have been photographing weddings for quite a few years now.

I have also been published in several wedding magazines and blog ( such as ” Vermont Bride magazine”, “Maine Real weddings magazine” , ” WellWed Maine”, “WeddingWire” and more…)

I mostly ( with of course, some exceptions) photograph wedding in New England from June to November, and in the Southern states ( FL, GA, SC ) from November to June

 

Unfortunately ( or fortunately) I do NOT accept Pinterest list of wedding shots .

Indeed…I am NOT a fan of dinosaurs or any other “things” appearing in the photos.

and you don’t want to re-create someone else wedding that you saw online….

But, of course, I will photograph some of your “ideas” during the wedding ( ie : if you are looking for a special or funny pose with people in your party )

However, if you will be wearing something special or have special items  , please let me know

All of my past couples have given me the freedom to photograph their weddings as it fits my style……Therefore, if you happen to get a” Bridezilla” or like to be in control of the photography, I recommend that you find someone who would fit your needs best 😉

Also, I would like to say that I will not photograph while people are eating….for a couple of reasons:

1- Food dropping out of someone’s mouth is not really pretty

2-Most people like to not be disturb when they eat

This is my job and I LOVE it.

 

Also, as for meals at the weddings : YES, I do eat…. 🙂 😉

 

A little more reading :

After having photographed over 500 weddings ( and counting), I learned a few things about weddings…..

My philosophy is simple : A wedding day should not be a styled photoshoot !!

indeed, a wedding day should be about Love, Happiness and Friendship..

Sometimes, a wedding day is about a groom who can’t stop crying at the ceremony ( it happened!!)
Sometimes , it is about a bride who stresses out a little when getting ready or a bridesmaid who thinks she knows a lot about photography because she has the latest Iphone…

A wedding day is about all these little things!
A wedding day will never be “perfect”..but it still will be pretty close to perfect!

let me repeat : A wedding day is not a styled photoshoot !
90% of the time, the weather won’t be that perfect breezy overcast day!
You will be sweaty and your hair won’t be perfect when the ceremony is over!
And that is what a wedding day is about!!

A wedding day is about people getting together, dancing , drinking and eating..Having fun!!
A wedding day is about the bride and groom loving each other and interacting with their families and guests.

You should not be spending hours doing portraits, waiting for that perfect light or sunset…
30 to 45 minutes should be the maximum time allowed for those posed photos

So yes, from time to time, I might “rush” family portraits, but only because I believe that people should spend more time enjoying the wedding day than listening to my stupid jokes for hours!

This is why I would like to view myself as a wedding observer!
I am here to observe and report the day as a candid manner, just the way that I do see it.
just like a storyteller…but using photography instead of a pen.

Therefore , if you are looking for a wedding photographer who emphasizes candid photos and fun during your wedding day , then I am the photographer that you need!

However, rest assure that I will still do portraits that your parents and grandparents will love 🙂

Christophe.
