Thierry Aguiar, wedding photographer

Art photographer based in Grasse, my approach to taking your wedding photographs is identical to the one I adopted for the realization of my personal work :

    - We will have a lengthy discussion at our first meeting so I can explain the way I work, and listen to your desires for your wedding pictures
    - I will check out the different places prior to shooting (church, city hall, park ...) one month before the wedding. I work throughout the Alpes-Maritimes (06) (area of Grasse, Cannes, Mouans Sartoux, Mougins, Antibes, Nice) and part of the Var (83) (area of Fayence, Montauroux)
    - I do not take thousands of photographs, but rather a hundred at most
    - I retouch photos before I hand them to you in digital form
    - I will hard copy on paper the most beautiful pictures, in format 20 * 30 cm or 30 * 45 cm (a CD/DVD has a limited life time, whereas a hard copy will still be seen in 100 years)

On the wedding day I can, as you wish, make a full report from the preparation of the festivities, the bride and groom, to the evening party.
The realization of the pictures of the newlyweds takes place only between you and me, without the disruption of guests, to preserve a complicity between us and make you forget the stress of the day for a few moments.

During the cocktail I can shoot on the fly tight portraits of the guests, adding to the many pleasant and natural memorabilia.

Your wedding day, whether it takes place in Grasse or elsewhere in the Alpes-Maritimes and the Var, is unique, exceptional and bright, as will the photographs that I will take throughout the day.

Photography is my passion. Sharing it with you will be an immense pleasure.

PS: little wedding photography is displayed on this website because most people do not want to expose these personal images in full view of everyone. I respect that choice. However, you can account for my photographic knowledge by browsing through the other galleries on this site.
