NOW BOOKING 2021/2022 FOR PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY
Hi there, and congratulations on your engagement!
My name is Simon, I am from France and I now live in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina where I offer both photography and videography services.
After studying cinema and photography in college ten years ago, I have been lucky enough to travel to many different places to work on a lot of exciting projects. My career has involved following music bands and artists on tour, shooting behind the scenes footage for feature films, directing documentaries and short films, and now documenting people's love and biggest days across magical Western North Carolina, and beyond! I am always ready to pack a bag and travel the world for projects.
My approach when documenting a wedding is to be as discreet as possible while still being everywhere that matters. Although I am fully trained for posed photos, my style definitely leans more towards unstaged, candid moments. My goal is always to capture what's in front of me as genuinely as possible and to translate it into timeless pictures and videos.
Last but not least:
BLACK LIVES MATTER - LOVE IS LOVE - ALL ARE WELCOME
I can't wait to hear more about your big day!

Simon creates and captures MAGICAL moments!
I had found Simon through Wedding Wire and my two goals was to book a photographer with experience in the mountains and would be creative with posing/angles. When I tell you Simon showed up and showed out for our wedding, I mean it! He is punctual, professional, and excellent with communication. He was able to truly capture the love, silliness, and fun of our relationship with photos that could easily be printed in a magazine.
When we shared our virtual wedding album with our friends, family, and social media communities, we received endless compliments and questions about how they could book Simon for their own events. We knew Simon was talented and he really soared above our expectations with the photos he presented us. I'm making sure to attach the photos that made our friends' jaws DROP and show incredible Simon's art turned out for our wedding day (clouds were peeking in-and-out and fresh rain called for a change of scenery!). Overall, Simon is the greatest of all-time and the only photographer I recommend to my friends and family!Sent on 02/09/2021

Amazing wedding photos!
Simon did a great job with our intimate wedding photos! He was very responsive and flexible prior to the wedding date and not to mention very friendly throughout the process- he was a big hit with everyone! We just love our photos and we couldnt be happier to have had Simon as our photographer. So talented- I cant say that enough!Sent on 02/11/2021

Could not ask for more!
Simon absolutely blew us away. His attention to detail and passion for his work made every single moment he captured just breathtaking. We cannot even describe how happy we are that we chose him! Our photos turned out better than we ever could have imagined and will definitely live on forever.Sent on 02/05/2021
