About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner
$500 Most Popular Price

We are a couple photographers based in Bora Bora. While we are based and mostly work in Bora Bora, we are available to shoot in the US as well as Hong Kong.

Today, I am grateful to do what I love while also being accompanied and supported by my wonderful girlfriend as my assistant. Working as a couple in photography is fun, we both love what we do and connecting with our worldwide clientele is an enriching experience.

Bonnie is a native from Hong Kong, speaks Mandarin, Cantonese and English. She is most helpful in demonstrating poses, assisting with the clients attire as well as handing light when required. She also has an excellent eye for the small details that may get lost while looking through the lens!

Bora Bora is no place to be rushing! We insist on being generous with the time we spend on location shooting. While others might promise more photos, our main objective is for you to have fun and deliver professional images!

A good portion of my work is done while shooting destination weddings and couples on their honeymoon, I am open minded and willing to work with you to satisfy yourspecific desires!

Some of my other works include shooting family vacations, honeymoons, snorkeling adventures and much much more! The options are endless.

Although my style is typically more on the “photojournalism ” / "contemporary" side (less posing), we will of course guide you through the session! I also enjoy shooting portraits, local events on the island, as well as underwater and mid-air/water photos. Due to the demographics of people visiting Bora Bora, it is a rare opportunity to be doing maternity photos but of course that is always a beautiful and unique experience!

I have the great pleasure and honor of capturing stills from official events on the island such as the annual Heiva, a beautiful competitive dance competition. These events, the simplicity of life, the people and their culture are a few of the many reasons I fell in love with French Polynesia and decided to move here from the USA.

    Exceptional Destination Wedding Photo's-Bora Bora

    Wow! We just slowed down and Steve pulled the photo’s up. They are absolutely stunning. You did a phenomenal job. We love each and every one of them. We didn’t realize you had sent them so quickly. Your work is impeccable. We looked at each picture and cried. You really captured the special moments of our glorious day. We loved that both you and Bonnie were a part of it.
    We will look them over again this evening and start the download process. You got the shot for sure with us jumping off the wood deck and the flower crown picture you took in the water was amazing.
    Thank you very much! Even though our families weren’t there, you both felt like family and made the experience even more memorable.
    Love,
    Naomi and Steve"

    You both radiated love, both were so naturally happy - You made it easy for us!

    It truly was a pleasure, we certainly hope we will stay in touch and who knows; perhaps even cross paths again!

    We wish you much love and happiness and to a better 2021!

    Comfortable, easy to work with professional photographer!

    We genuinely had an amazing experience! We were able to be ourselves and interact with one another in a free joyful environment, almost forgetting that those moments were being captured! The photography service that we received was outstanding and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the service during our event and finished photos we received after the ceremony! Thank you again for making this part of the ceremony so easy!!

    Bora Bora Photo & Video's reply:

    Dear Paula,

    Thank you for having trusted us in capturing this very special moment! It was a great pleasure for us to spend time with the two of you and your family. You made it easy for us, you both showed the love between the two of you. It so wonderful you both had your children witness this day as well!

    Thank you for the very kind word, we are so fortunate to do what we do today and witness such moments!

    Bora Bora Beach Elopement

    End to end just great service and photos from Stephan and Bonnie for our intimate beach ceremony in Bora Bora. Wide variety of shots and we especially enjoyed jumping into the water at the end! As a bonus to the high res photos and edited slideshow we got within just a week; Bonnie also provided some same day video clips from her iPhone so we could upload to social media and keep friends and family up to date back in Canada!

    Bora Bora Photo & Video's reply:

    Dear Geoff and Mei-Mei,

    You beach ceremony was beautiful, you both make a wonderful couple. It was such a pleasure to meet and spend time with the two of you! We are grateful to be doing what we do and meet so many wonderful couples!

    We hope these photos will make for life long memories and will encourage you to come back to perhaps celebrate another anniversary:-)

    We wish the both of you lots of love and happiness.

    Stephan & Bonnie
