LEAD PHOTOGRAPHER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
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.
Definitely my favorite photographer to highlight the beauty of life.
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!
Thank you so much!
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.
We will cherish our wedding images forever, thank you so much!
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.
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.

From The Perfect Proposal To A Stunning Engagement Soirée
WE DOCUMENT THE JOURNEY TO YOUR HAPPILY EVER AFTER
WE OFFER A UNIQUE LENS TO THE DNA OF YOUR LOVE
There’s no denying that location sourcing is an art. 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.
BEAUTIFUL COMPOSITION THRIVES ON CONTRASTING THE PAST AND THE PRESENT
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.
Having grown up in Versailles, this town holds a sentimental place in my heart.
LEAD WEDDING FILMMAKER & BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
The skilled hands of 17th-century French Baroque architecture brought to life a royal fantasy fit for extravagant weddings of the new millennium. A private estate of theatrical dimensions, Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte hosts furnished interiors, majestic gardens, a carriage museum and candlelit fountain displays that dial up the optical inquiry of your big day.
A storybook vision located about 50 kilometers north of Paris, Château de Chantilly pairs its traditional tinge with a contemporary edge. Surrounded by equestrian tradition, a grounding forest, and gardens that fuse eras, styles, and designs, this historic residence offers a pattern play that makes your wedding photographs and video sing.
Moody tones, touchable textures, and stunning European charm just a short 40 minute trip from the heart of Paris. Having staged some of the most anticipated weddings, elopements and engagement parties over the past few decades, Château de Villette continues to garner attention since its construction in the 17th-century. Surrounded by splendid gardens and sprawling woodlands, this beautiful venue plays host to a wedding celebration like no other.
It’s true that in France you can find a bevy of beauties that are sure to warm the hearts of your beloved, but is there anything more spectacular than the showstopping beauty of The Ritz Paris? In close proximity to the city’s most famous icons, this not-so-hidden gem boasts a roaring facade, luxurious interiors and a notable energy that translates life’s defining moments into treasured memories. Suits intimate ceremonies and large weddings alike.
In today’s always-on culture, there’s no denying that when we want to go beyond the hype to the source of true creation, there’s only one place we can turn to: museums. Musée Rodin is filled with artworks that reflect the charm of the hand and the power of substance. Imagine exchanging vows before Rodin’s majestic sculptures, or Van Gogh’s sweeping swirls of color at your wedding, cocktail party or reception—let’s make it happen.
Overlooking the Eiffel Tower and the Seine in the 16th arrondissement, stands one of the most magical locations the city has to offer: the Shangri-La Paris. This glamorous hotel is the perfect venue for marriage proposals, grand weddings, and private elopements reimagined into life-long modern heirlooms. Uniting emotional and aesthetic impact, its lush interiors and palatial allure add an unbeatable, atmospheric glow to your I DOs.
A peaceful 19th-century haven found outside Paris, Château Bouffémont is the quintessential location for destination weddings, romantic getaways, and vow renewals. Its sumptuous grounds continue the jardin à la française conversation into unique artistic territory, while the intricately crafted decoration and construction of its grand reception halls bear witness to the magic of your forever-love.
A beautiful estate in the countryside between Paris and Normandy, Château de Dangu offers a lavish setting to your wedding celebrations, from proposal to reception. Its welcoming appeal sits on 350 acres of picturesque grounds that houses a grand staircase, spacious salons, and a charming library to accommodate a beautiful, exclusive event.
Standing resolutely apart from the masses, L’abbaye des Vaux-de-Cernay exudes a sense of historical timelessness and elegant finesse. Host to carefully preserved ancient ruins, gorgeous paved terrasses, and a sunlit lake, the abbey’s extensive grounds offer an artful alternative to your marriage celebrations.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We have a reverence and deep admiration for celebrated historic venues.
From the captivating energy of slow-paced Provence to the unparalleled romance of buzzing Paris and the breathtaking
storied landscapes of Italy, each location serves as a playground to turn timeless traditions into anecdotal heirlooms that live
well beyond us. Don’t just dream of a French wedding; allow yourself to live the experience of capturing unforgettable wedding memories halfway across the world. Join the brides and grooms who honored their love overlooking the azure waters of the French Riviera, or the couples who toasted against the idyllic Bordeaux scenery.
Highly personal, every photo and film taken by Cadoret Studios creates masterpiece memories for beautiful souls.
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.
