About Chloé Lapeyssonnie
Chloé’s vision of wedding photography is a combination of authentic documentary and editorial sleekness, derived from her background in fashion. She strives to create timeless memories, the kind that will be handed down from one generation to another, away from changing trends.
She delights in capturing the small and the decisive moments, the bursting laughter, the quiet tears, the hands touching, the unruly children, the crazy dance moves…
Her style is resolutely modern, defined by clean composition, geometrical elements, elegant black and whites and natural colors, contributing to the faithfulness of the recollection of that unique, magical day.
Behind The Brand
What is it that makes an image magical?
To me, magic happens when a clean background serves as the perfect canvas to the emotional moment unfolding. I love when style is the slave to the content!
What advice would you give to the camera-shy couple?
All of my couples come to me stating that they are uncomfortable with the idea of posing, mentioning they feel awkward in front of the camera and this is perfectly normal – everyone experiences a little bit of camera-shyness! The best way to overcome this apprehension is to trust the photographer you have chosen, to communicate plenty with him/her in advance and to let it go on D Day. You have loved their work, so let them work their magic.
Moreover, when the time comes for the couples photos, you are so elated and drunk in love that you will feel automatically more relaxed. With only a little indication from the photographer, everything will fall perfectly into place and the results will amaze you.
Do you travel interstate or internationally?
I am more than happy to travel the world, whether it is for my couples, the brands I work with, or for my personal enjoyment.
As an estimate, how long does your editing process take?
I am very thorough when it comes to culling and editing my images because I know they are meant to reflect all the small and important moments, as well as the general mood of this important, glorious day. I also tend to deliver quite a large amount of photos, because I document not only on the couple’s history but also the presence of their beloved guests. As a result, it takes approximatively 6-8 weeks for my couples to discover their gallery.
Describe a magical moment from a wedding you’ve photographed…
It would honestly be too difficult to single out one moment in particular as I have witnessed more than a hundred weddings over the past nine years, each of them with their whirlwind of emotions! All I can say is that I get very sentimental during humanist celebrations and speeches, as they express the very personal and deepest feelings of the couple and their loved ones…
Why we love it…
Chloé’s work is bold, candid, passionate and carefree. Her evocative frames are enveloped in an effortless, stylish aesthetic.
For the couple…
For the wild romantics, the fun-seekers, the down-to-earth couples who admire beautifully composed images, yet still want those raw, authentic moments to shine through.
Chloé’s innate talent for framing allows her to create pure beauty from the simplest of situations. Consider a less-is-more approach to styling and choose a location that oozes with natural beauty. The magic you’ll get back will blow you away.
