Definitely my favorite photographer to highlight the beauty of life.

“Paulina captures precious moments; her technique makes them seem just unbelievable!”

Paulina's work is just the perfect combination of elegant, timeless, romantic, refined and beautiful. Each image tells a story that just by being there you wouldn’t be able to share it or express it as she does. I highly recommend Paulina to capture any moment of your life you want to remember. She will be the best at it and share these exceptional experiences through her pictures.

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 West-side photo and video studio, we spend time between Provence, the French Riviera, Paris and Italy.

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.
