“Paulina and Ossa are an absolute delight to work with.”

It was so easy and effortless that I never worried about a thing. They enhanced our day and captured the exact images and drone footage we wanted. And I appreciate how they were able to show our love for one another in each photo. Not to mention their quick turn around time of getting the photos and video to us. Exceptional service all around.

Frequently asked questions

Where are you based?

We’re happy to call the South of France our home. When we’re not working at our photo and video studio, we spend time between Provence, the French RivieraParis, and Italy.

Can we book just one service, or do we have to book both?

Our partnership is at the core of Cadoret Studios, but we may work separately at times to offer individual photography and videography services. We also work with other skilled photo and video teams to provide a smooth and stress-free experience for our brides and grooms.

How and when will we receive our photos and film?

Your final wedding prints and digitals will be ready within 4 to 6 weeks after your big day. Every wedding album is personally curated upon careful selection and expert editing processes. Approximately, we provide between 40 and 60 images per hour. We ensure your film is captured with exceptional 4K quality. You will enjoy the cinematic experience on big screens or on smaller devices.

How do you price your photo and film services?

Each wedding is different and comes with its own particular set of needs. We quote every wedding, elopement, and portrait session on an individual basis depending on desired services, such as photography and/or videography, coverage time, and number of guests. Contact us and we will gladly assist you in making the best choice for your dream event.

Do you shoot film or digital?

Both. Being confident in both mediums allows us to bring digital and film cameras to your special day, and select the best option for every frame. Film creates exquisite timeless photographs akin to fine art paintings, while digital offers complete control over the pictures and lets us dance in and out during your “I Dos” with optimal discretion. We combine masterful editing techniques and a wide range of elegant photography skills to deliver flawless consistency. Visit our Portfolio to learn more about our style and distinct approach to photography.

Do you use drones?

Striking aerial shots add a captivating and spectacular touch to your wedding album. Cadoret Studios’ lead filmmaker, Ossa, is a certified drone pilot for commercial use. However, drone usage depends on factors like location, venue permissions, and weather conditions. We'd love to hear more about your event so we can make the necessary preparations to incorporate aerial drone footage.

Do you have backup equipment?

Absolutely. We use professionally maintained equipment only for both video and photography. Our gear is compatible with both photo and video, and we guarantee that everything is redundantly backed up. In the event of a technical issue with one device, we always have three others available as backups.

Do you record the audio?

Yes, we do record audio. For speeches, we use a lavalier microphone (also known as lav, or lapel mic) on the groom, plus a backup on the officiant, and connect it to the DJ soundboard. We will use any recorded audio that enhances the story in the final film.
