Document the unscripted and unplanned.

Traditionally, wedding days are an emotional roller coaster. And while expert planning takes all the stress away, pre-wedding moments are packed with gestures, glances, and good old bursts of joy, laughter, and (happy) tears. 
Getting ready is only the first part of luxury wedding photography, which starts with capturing cherished moments with your favorite people in a gorgeous bridal suite, or sharing a cigar with your university pals. Pre-wedding photoshoots cover individual portraits and heart-warming first look shots for couples who want to skip the big reveal at the altar, and instead opt for a private moment before the grand ceremony.


An unplugged wedding lets true magic happen.

Today, events are filled with guests trying to capture the moment themselves with cellphones and tablets. These devices, however, pose a significant obstacle to your wedding photographer blocking any access to authentic engagement and emotion during your nuptials.
Choosing to go tech-free during your ceremony, and asking your guests to follow suit, invites everyone to live in the moment and be fully present for the long-awaited I Do. Instead of looking at a sea of screens, let us take care of getting the money shot. We guarantee exceptional cinematic quality, always.

Trust the process and have fun!

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.

Let’s make
beautiful memories

Capturing beauty is a ceremony that everyone’s invited to attend. But, as we always say, no two weddings are the same. We quote every wedding, elopement, and portrait session on an individual basis. Connect with us today—we're always happy to assist you in selecting the best solution for your budget and needs.

Cadoret Studios will help you make the right choice for your dream event.
