Maeva & Welcome,
We are Virginie and Samuel and we are so glad you are visiting us !
SV Photograph is, above all, a team ! A husband and wife team with a simple aim : make you happy, show your story and reveal who you really are. We believe that everybody and every wedding or honeymoon are different and for this reason we can't consider you just as a request by email. We also believe a photoshoot is not just a "click and go", we see it as a real relationship.
On the day we like to keep things easy. No crazy posing, no cheesy or fake stuff. We will make art that you will be proud to hang on your wall but also a reflection of what you've seen, what you've lived.
We are proud to be members of Fearless Photographers and to be selected by ISPWP, the two Wedding Photographers' community only accept the most experienced, talented, and professional wedding Photographers in the world.
We have been published in some stunning magazines like Grace Ormonde Wedding Style and Bridal Musings and lifestyle one like Huffpost or Tattoed. Even if we don't run after recognition though, we are glad to receive Awards. But what we appreciate even more is the fantastic feedback of our clients and we the fact we keep in touch with them !
We have taken photos for a very long time. I had my first camera at 12, ok, it was a disposable camera and in black and white! I saved my pocket money until I was 15 to buy a film Canon (sorry, if you are born after 90', you might be don't know what we are talking about...). It was still only in black and white and I learned photography in high school for three years. Samuel was more interested in creating cartoons. As soon as we met each other at 16, he fell in love with my passion and we learned photography together.
One day, we decided to leave our country with only 23kg of luggage with us! Five years ago, we arrived in New Zealand: we needed some fresh air and a "new beginning". We found ourselves in a perfect "lost in translation" atmosphere. Our fascination with landscapes and wildlife was satisfied and our life was completely different than in France. We decided to take a risk and do what we love: Photography…as our full time job! It was 5 years ago already.
Now we are in French Polynesia, based in Moorea, a beautiful island close to Tahiti, and traveling often to Bora Bora, Tikehau, Marquesas and other islands to shoot weddings, honeymoons, family holidays and fashion models. We are happy to shoot everywhere from USA/Canada to Asia and beyond.
We work with a team of professional drone operator, Mike and Yannick, and we edit photos with our touch, to complete your souvenir. We also work with a professional videographer we can propose her contact for your wedding.
Your happiness inspires our work and we can never thank you too much for that.
Samuel & Virginie.
