In Paris, every grand boulevard offers the opportunity to express your undying affection to your better half. Stolen kisses come alive with the Louvre Museum or the Petit Palais as witnesses. The Eiffel Tower’s twinkling background SEEN from the Trocadéro lends a magical glow to your engagement shoot, while the sweeping views of the city from Pont Alexandre III atop the Seine put a soft focus on your pre-wedding celebrations. Let curiosity guide you through majestic palaces, castles and cathedrals—the Palais-Royal and Notre-Dame will never fail you—and embrace the grounded feeling that les jardins du Luxembourg and Tuileries have to offer.
Getting married in France offers a host of exciting, new experiences and the chance to spend quality time with family and friends. The City of Light unveils an ode to classic romanticism that continues to captivate today’s global clientele. Cadoret Studios is the evolution of Paulina and Ossa’s long history of hard-working collaboration creating custom timeless imagery for brides and grooms in destination weddings held across the world. Striking aerial drone footage, editorial style photography and cinematic film production make these exclusive secret locations feel exceptionally familiar.
Just 30 minutes away from central Paris, the cultural city of Versailles claims relevance in French heritage. Its striking grandeur highlights the pared back sensibility of pre-wedding festivities, from spectacular marriage proposals to intimate engagement sessions.
When it comes to integrating traditional elements to life-long memories, it’s all about a deft mix of context and a good eye for creative alchemy. At the Palace of Versailles, sunlight ranges from warm yellow to burnt orange, comforting moments spellbound against the world’s best polished gardens, while gilded reflections swaddle your embrace in love and romance.
And despite its grand allure, Versailles feels incredibly warm and inviting, influencing our senses with its visual trickery. Take the estate of Trianon, for example, home to the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon palaces, as well as the Queen’s Hamlet and a variety of ornamental gardens that add a unique charm to every single bride and groom shot.
"Paulina was a fantastic photographer to work with during our wedding. She was very cooperative and captured such beautiful memories for us that will last a lifetime. Definitely one of the sweetest wedding photographers we've worked with, and the most magical photography skills. Thank you so much once again, Paulina, for shooting our dream wedding!"
"We really enjoyed every second working together with Paulina as our wedding photographer! During the wedding ceremony, she was always pretty good at capturing the perfect moments while we had all the time in the world to focus on ourselves. During our wedding shoot afterwards, she gave us so many valuable suggestions in terms of acting and looking while we had the shooting. When we received the results of our photo shoot, we were impressed, the pictures were even better than expected! Paulina's personal touch in editing pictures is incredible."
"Paulina and Ossa are a dream team to work with! They listen carefully to your expectations and offer insightful suggestions to achieve them. We have always been pleased with their work and feel confident that our goals will be met on every project. They are also kind and patient, which is always appreciated during a time sensitive and stressful shoot!"

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.

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.
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.
Once you have confirmed your date and selected your collection, we will provide you with a photography contract for your review. To secure your date, we kindly request that you sign and return the contract within approximately one week. Upon receiving the signed contract and a 50% photography retainer, your wedding date will be officially booked.
