ABOUT US

We know that when it comes to choosing your wedding photographer it's about more than their photos, so here is a little bit about us...

The Story Behind The Lens

Hi! We’re Alison & Lance 

We met in Paris during our photography training at the Photographic institute of Paris & London: Speos. One of the top 5 photography schools in the world! (Yes, we were pretty lucky!)

Pretty fast we became a couple. Fate seemed to always bring us together and we became inseparable. When the program ended, instead of Lance returning to the US, we naturally moved in together.

We now live together in the 15th Arrondissement of Paris with our cat Milo.
He’s the cutest little monster you’ll ever see, we’re pretty bananas about him, so if you follow us you might see some occasional photos of him sleeping or doing normal cat things that to us are always the most magical things ever. (Is that what it feels like to be a parent?)
With our house full of love, we realised nothing could be better than working with people that, like us, loved each other. Thus, we decided to capture weddings, families and couples.

Lance graduated in documentary photography with training from the renowned Magnum Agency, and I graduated with a major in studio photography, so you won’t find a more versatile couple qualified to meet your photographic expectations.

We’re fun, sensitive, professional, and most of all, reliable, so that you never need to have any concerns when it comes time to capture those perfect pictures of your most cherished moments.

No doubt you’ll love us.  As for us, we already love you!

FUN FACTS

you might not know about us

It wasn't until half way through our first date that Alison realized she was even on a date

FUN FACTS

you might not know about us

We are 11 years apart! But nobody can tell cause Lance just looks like a cute baby! I must say I'm feeling pretty lucky I didn't have to wait 34 years to meet the one and I'm definitely happy Lance waited for me and never settled before just because it was "age appropriate".

FUN FACTS

you might not know about us

We both travel a lot! Actually both of our fathers worked/works for airline companies so we had the chance to travel for cheap! Unfortunately for me (Alison) I turned 26 and family benefits ended so those cheap days are now behind me 😿 buuuut I’m still pretty grateful for those 26 years!

Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

What would it be like having you as photographers?

ANSWER

It will be like double dating with friends, we stay natural and easy going with all our clients (who are wayyyy beyond simple clients to us!). We promise to keep it fun and relaxed, to stay respectful and and attentive towards you the whole time.

QUESTION

What’s your work process?

ANSWER

First we meet and exchange with you, either in person or on skype. If we “click” we will discuss our packages and create a personal quote if necessary. We then ask for a deposit of 30% to make sure your date is secured and we sign the contract. Before your wedding you will receive a questionnaire which will give us all the informations to be the absolute best for you. On your big day, we’ll be your shadow and follow you everywhere (except maybe to the bathroom ahah), we’ll drool at your beautiful outfit and all the personalised details you’d have put into your wedding. We’ll cry, we’ll laugh and most of all we’ll click just at the right times!

QUESTION

When can we expect to get our photos?

ANSWER

We make sure to deliver the photos to you in 4 to 6 weeks, it can seem like a long time but don’t worry, you’ll get some occasional photos while you wait!
No matter the package chosen you’ll receive them on a wooden USB drive in full resolution along side an online gallery to make it easy peasy for your guest to get some photos.

QUESTION

What equipment do you have?

ANSWER

Good gear will never make a good photographer. But as professionals having the best tools to create our art is very important to us.
We have 3 Canon Bodies ( 5d Mark IV, 6D Mark II, 6D Mark I) but also tons of magical Lens ( Canon 85mm 1.2, Canon 70-200mm 2.8, Tokina Macro 100mm 2.8, Canon 16-35mm 2.8, Sigma Art 50mm 1.4 and several others)
We also have flashes, tripods, monopods, reflectors... Well you get it, we’re totally covered!

QUESTION

How would you describe your style?

ANSWER

Our style is a romantic documentary style with a renaissance feeling. We consider ourselves to be part of the dramatic/cinematic wedding photography style.

QUESTION

Do you always shoot together?

ANSWER

Mostly. We really love working together and we really feel like we are two sides of one coin. We totally complete each other in our photography approach/ style and knowledge. Thought it can happen that on smaller weddings such as elopements and engagement sessions that only one of us is in attendance.

QUESTION

Do you travel?

ANSWER

Hell yes ! Definitely! Both of our fathers worked for airlines, so we spent most of our childhood traveling across the globe (well Lance beats me by far but he has few years ahead so I think that's cheating, haha). For us, traveling has always been a part of our life and always will be! We can grab a coffee and tell you all about some of our great adventures and help you plan yours, life is all about that after all. Send us your dream location for a shoot and let’s make it happen!

QUESTION

Do you give us all the Raw unedited files?

ANSWER

Ok so we get that it’s something that can be frustrating, knowing someone as thousands of pictures of you and to never see them, but trust us. It’s for a good cause.
Raw files are just like an unfinished painting, like someone just drew the layout and that’s it. How good of a painter would I be to just deliver that to you?
With our editing we put colours, highlights, contrasts etc all at the right places making the painting come to life. And rest assured, we can guarantee you we know what makes a good photo and the ones that don’t get delivered are just not worth it. We truly believe in quality over quantity, so put your trust in us, relax, and we promise you wont be feeling like you're missing out on anything.

QUESTION

How many photos will we get?

ANSWER

The number of photos that will be provided directly depends on the time of coverage and guest.
For every package made you chose you’ll have a number of insured photos but we never really count them. We will give you as many photos as we feel like they are really worth it. Again, quality over quantity, but with what our couples created so far we tend to notice that we get quality in big quantity!

QUESTION

Do you have any special deals we should know about?

ANSWER

Yes! We offer some discounts for certain elopements and destination wedding if they take place in Europe contact us to know more!

QUESTION

I’m really not photogenic, what if I don’t like myself on the photos?

ANSWER

Aaaaah. Be reassured, no one really thinks they’re photogenic (except models maybe), simply because we’ve mainly seen our face in the mirror all our life and seeing it on a photo is completely different! But you know what helps? A photographer! We often tell our clients that even us had family members who tried taking good photos of us, we hand them our camera with the perfect settings and well... it’s not really working. Non professional photographers just don’t know what a good frame is, they don’t know when to click and they don’t really see which angles would be the best. So you look at it and … well…disappointment.
Often people think everyone can take good photos, that you only need a nice camera. But no. You have to have a trained eye and the good instinct and just know what you’re doing! So let us do the work and you’ll think “Maybe I AM photogenic!”

QUESTION

Posing in front of a camera seems really awkward, how do you make us more comfortable?

ANSWER

Of course. Don’t you worry you’re in good hands. In our training at Speos Photographic Institute, we had to pose for our classmates to practice studio and outdoor shoots, so we both really understand what it’s like to be in front of the camera. So let’s put some music, tell us about the first time you met each other let’s takes some photos, show you how good and cute you both look and enjoy our little adventure!

QUESTION

When should we book you?

ANSWER

As soon as possible to ensure your date isn't booked already.

QUESTION

Is it ok if our guests take some photos at the wedding?

ANSWER

Yes. However, we strongly recommend that couples tell their guests to keep their phones put away during the ceremony. You've hired a professional photographer for a reason. Nobody wants to see wedding photos with a bunch of guests staring at the screens on their phones rather than the special moments taking place before them. And you don't want to risk the shot of a lifetime being stolen by an over eager guest jumping in front of the pro photographer to capture that pivotal moment with a subpar iPhone snapshot when the same moment was about to be captured by a trained photographer.
