“We have met Jean-Laurent thanks to a friend in July 2012 – in other words a year before our wedding day. A first informal meeting in a bar, a few words about our wedding, on how we were envisioning this day, on how we first met 10 years ago….etc.
And then, after these conversations, Jean-Laurent told us about his work, his perspective on life as a couple, on weddings, and then he showed us his portfolio. And then he blew our minds: in the blink of an eye we moved from informal to professional.
After all, this first meeting was just like Jean-Laurent, from his participation in our D-day to his work: informal AND professional. Cool AND precise. Sensitive AND efficient. His style AND our personality.
And there you go, thanks to him, we have couple photos that look like us (except that we are even nicer). By walking around Paris, little by little, as we discussed, between 2 breaks at bars (one needs to feed me every 2 hours…), he managed to seize the unseizable, put our complicity on films… Although I thought only Jérôme and I were able to perceive this feeling. Far from a “vendor”, he played a key role in our day. And that’s probably the reason why he was so accurate in the pictures he took of us, of our families, of our guests, of the organization. His discretion rests upon immersion. So when I hear my friends complain about how long their couple’s photos took, or were too posed, or were boring, I realize how lucky we were, cause we had a lot of fun!
Now we have a great coverage of the full day, of each emotional moment, each look, each laugh, each stressful moment… And every time we look at the photos, we instantly dive in this very particular day again.
Two months after the wedding our friends still call Jean-Laurent “JL”, my grandma asks how he is doing, and all agree that our wedding was great, but that the highlight was our photographer. And Jérôme and I are pretty aligned with this analysis…
So thank you Jean-Laurent. Really.”

“We were so excited about finding a photographer who steps outside the box. We wanted something a bit more unique and personal, and in a more natural context. And what could be better than doing a photo shoot at home? The cherry on top was that we are passionate about decoration of our little nest, so it was the perfect opportunity to capture our love inside it.
From the very beginning, Jean-Laurent was super communicative. He was open to any and all ideas and was so passionate! The day of the shoot, he was calm and funny, full of ideas. He had a way of making any suggestion and idea work out perfectly. Not to mention he made the lighting work perfectly in our 1st floor courtyard apartment. He gave us no reason to feel shy or awkward, which was quite hard when we are supposed to cuddle and be kissy in front of a camera.
We didn’t see the time fly by. The photos JL took that day are magical memories and reminders of our love, in our favorite place: our home. He has a talent for making such simple moments filled with beauty pure magic.”

“To make a long story short, 8 years after we met and a kid later we decided to get married! Fifteen days later, we were scheduling the date at the city hall: we had a bit more than two months to organize everything…! An even though we had such tight timings, we wanted a nice wedding full of details.
Photos are one of the three things that stays after the wedding day along with the rings and love. A message on the contact form of Jean-Laurent’ site and 10 emails later he came home on a Saturday night. We talked about our wedding, his work but also about a lot of little things. Fr us it was clear: he was our photographer.
When Jean-Laurent tells you that the engagement session is essential, you have t trust his words! Apart from the fact that the photos are awesome, it’s also the moment when JL “teaches” you how to behave in front of the camera. And when he tells you “put your leg under the tree and your hand behind his neck” do it! The result is worth the acrobatics!
And above all, on your wedding day (you will not have as much time as for the engagement session) you can follow him with no apprehension.
On our wedding day JL was perfect: always on the lookout for an emotion, a detail, an unexpected shot… Discreet but there, he contributed to make that day an amazing memory.
The result is simply awesome, our guests were more than impressed and last but not least he is adorable.”








"Jean-Laurent Gaudy was our wedding photographer, and both his photography and the experience of working with him was beyond what we could have hoped for. He's professional, attentive, and immensely creative. He has a unique ability to find amazing moments and spaces, but very discretely and gently nudges his subjects into those moments. He is far from the bossy and often overbearing photographers that I've seen at other weddings. We immediately felt comfortable around him and that level of comfort is reflected in the intimacy and personalization of the photos of us that he captured.

What we especially loved about the images he took at our wedding is the diversity of the photos: he of course captured us and our guests but he also found these incredible moments and details around the wedding venue, in the rooms, with our clothes, table settings etc. The result for us is a photo library and wedding album that is not simply a documentation of a day that is very important to us, but a story about who we are and how we arrived at that moment. Highly, highly recommend JL and his work."

"Nearly a year after our wedding, my husband and I are still so grateful that we were able to have JL photograph our wedding. We knew going into wedding planning that the photographer would be one of our most important vendors, so we prioritized finding someone who could beautifully and authentically capture our day. JL exceeded our high expectations. Our photographs are stunning and feel truly authentic to the day and to us as a couple. He also made us feel very comfortable and relaxed while taking pictures (I usually don't love having my picture taken). In addition, JL is so easy to work with and very communicative. Not only did he travel across the country to document our day, but he did so after we had to reschedule our wedding due to Covid. Hiring JL was one of the best wedding decisions we made, and I would highly recommend him to anyone."

"Jean-Laurent is the best. We initially booked him to shoot our wedding day pre-pandemic but obviously our plans changed. He was incredibly flexible and was able to pivot from a large gathering to a small family affair on a completely different date seamlessly. On the day of, he made us feel completely natural during all of our “posed” photos got beautiful candid shots as well. JL is just overall a great guy and easy to talk to - we are so thankful he was able to be such a big part of our special day!"
