“…I love to photograph people and emotions, wedding is probably the playground i prefer the most...”

My name is Jacques Mateos,  a french awarded photographer based in Paris, France, who specializes in destination wedding in France (or different countries) and elopement in Paris or anywhere, pre wedding or honeymoon, bridal and portrait photography. To summarize i cover events for people and family in love before, during or after their wedding.

I offer a style of documentary photography, just be natural and take it easy. My aim is to capture your couple and your wedding or elopement from the bride’s and groom’s and people 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 travel where you ask me to go…Even if i live in Paris, i moved yet to Playa del Carmen, Guatemala, Tokyo, Rome, Hong Kong, Canada, Quebec, Bruges, Sevilla, Florence, Morocco, Chicago, New York, Seattle, Switzerland.I am proud of all the pics you can see in this site and it summarizes what i like and what i am. Ask me to photograph 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.

Tell me  your dream ?
