  • First and foremost – whom can you name as the best photographer in Marbella, Spain? :)

    It could have been me, because of my passion for weddings and being a perfectionist and a French creative mind with a great sense of humor. But in Marbella there is a few great photographer working on wedding since more than 20 years.. My favourite: Jeremy Standley, I have worked with him many times!

  • Are you photogenic?

    I look good maybe, but I prefer to be in the back of the camera.

  • How did you get in the photography industry?

    I created Sol Wedding Marbella in 2006 because my passion is to make people happy with my work!

  • What are the most important components of a good photo in your opinion?

    For me an attractive photo should be original and different. Never intrusive and always showing the best emotions of the couples.

  • Do you love traveling?

    I do love to travel and more for my work! We have done wedding in Scotland, Ireland, France and Portugal already..

  • What do you like most about your profession?

    My joy is to make couple happy with my original work. Because my job is my passion!

  • What do you like least about your profession?

    Yes. I hate to see guest taking picture, seeing hundred smart phone and i-phone, tablet or cameras during the more important moment of the day; at the ceremony! Often very difficult to work properly. Yes. This is frustrating because at this important moment I think the guest and family should enjoy the present moment, and not taking pictures or video they will not watch after the wedding day, probably! NO SMART PHONE DURING THE CEREMONY PLEASE.

  • What will be the future of photography?

    I prefer to not imagine. But already is getting very affordable to any amateur to buy a great photo camera and take splendid photos with all the automatic modes and new easy to use apps..

  • What is special in the photography genre you specialise at?

    For me is the emotion, love and passion that you can fill at each wedding. Each wedding or bride and groom is different. Wedding Photography transmit so much love during the big day. It is not an easy task always, but I love it!

  • How do you handle criticism?

    Criticism is very important to grow and learn. I learn everyday and get better every year, because of good or bad criticism!

  • Are there any trends in photography?

    At the moment I think the vintage and retro style is the tendencies. I don't follow tendencies because I like to be original and unique.

  • What should be the criteria for a customer to choose a photographer?

    The most important to pay attention is the first contact and feeling with your wedding photographer when you first meet. The quality/creativity of is work and passion to is job, that they can probably see on is website or social media, also. Sometime is not only the best price that they should look for. Quality and dedication have a price.

  • What things are to be avoided when shooting?

    Again. Seeing hundred smart phone and i-phone, tablet or cameras during the more important moment of the day; at the ceremony! Often very difficult to work properly. Yes. This is frustrating because at this important moment I think the guest and family should enjoy the present moment, and not taking pictures or video they will not watch after the wedding day, probably! NO SMART PHONE DURING THE CEREMONY PLEASE.

  • What details that usually pass unnoticed can a photographer notice?

    So many details, so many original wedding decoration details, kids having fun, bridesmaid getting ready, people feeling happy or emotional..

  • What influences the value of a photo? What are its elements?

    A picture is worth a thousand words! But a valuable photo for me, it's a photo that can make cry the bride, the groom or any family member. Touching the emotional of the person. This is big for me.
