welcome to (jacques) mateos wedding

jacques mateos  I am Jacques Mateos,  a french awarded photographer based in Paris, France, who specializes in wedding, pre wedding or honeymoon, bridal and portrait photography. To summarize i cover events for people in love before, during or after their wedding.  I move where you ask me to go…Even if i live in Paris, i moved yet to Playa del Carmen, Tokyo, Rome, Hong Kong, Canada, Quebec, Bruges, Morocco, Switzerland, …

I offer a style of documentary photography influenced by fashion editorials, just be natural and take it easy. My aim is to capture your couple and your wedding from the bride’s and groom’s point of view, as you are pronounced husband and wife…I won’t get in your way and work as discreetly as possible. The only way to do is to let your day flow by without being intrusive or interfering in any way. To move around, to listen, to stay candid with opened eyes… and remember your moments for a lifetime.

I am proud of all the stuff you can see in this site and it summarizes what i like and what i am. Ask me to shot something special, something you are dreaming about. Push me out of the standard limits and i will be happy to shot out of the box for you.
