How to find a french riviera wedding photographer?

Finding a french riviera wedding photographer can be overwhelming at times but it’s important to spend some time really thinking about what you imagine for your wedding photography & videography. Are you after a more timeless, editorial approach? or something more bold and adventurous? There is no right or wrong way; it all boils down to your own personal preference.

What makes a good french riviera wedding photographer?

With the overwhelming amount of photographers available, it comes at no surprise that not everyone is able to deliver the experience and results that you would expect. There are some things that a photographer can learn quickly, but others that only experience can provide. With our 10 years of being in the international wedding industry, we have seen our fair share of situations and can confidently approach each french riviera wedding with our aresenal of experience, tools and artistry. 

It’s important that whoever you choose to document your wedding, that you have a good connection to the photographer and most importantly, their style. A good tip is to ask to see a full gallery as so often photographers will (understandably) show only their best on their website and socials. You need to see the full package that you are potentially booking. Where someone may be great at couple photos, they may be lacking in candid moments with your friends and family; which arguable is even more important.

How much does a french riviera wedding photographer cost?

There is likely a photographer for every budget. But just a general rule of thumb which is present not only in the wedding industry, but overall, is that you get what you pay for. You can find french riviera wedding photographers for €2,000 to €5,000 and all the way up to €25,000+. It really depends on who you are asking and what your wedding coverage would entail. 

Our advice is to reach out to photographers who you admire and can imagine working with and asking them for a quote. Some of them list their prices on their website, other’s prefer to go through the personalized approach. In the end, it doesn’t hurt to ask and you may be pleasantly surprised by who actually fits your budget. 

Just a side little thought here – don’t make the mistake of skimping out on your photography and videography. The internet is plastered with horror stories and regret of couples who either didn’t book someone or who went the super cheap route just to save a buck. In the end, they are meant to be your lifelong memories and you wouldn’t want to not like them after a couple of years.
