Sylvain Bouzat Wedding Photographer
Since 2009, Sylvain Bouzat has been passionately documenting weddings in France, Switzerland, Europe and sometimes a little further afield. His creative style between candid documentary reportage and editorial photography allows him to capture meaningful images, with elegance and kindness.
Sylvain wishes to be close to the bride and groom in order to photograph the story of the couple and their loved ones. Thanks to this closeness and numerous exchanges, he creates very personal memories that you will keep for life.
"I love my job more than anything else and I have the chance to travel and meet incredible personalities, places and atmospheres on each wedding.
My job is based on the relationship I will create with the bride and groom. My couples who are open-minded, authentic. They often have a strong taste for adventure. I can build a real relationship of trust throughout this strong experience that is the wedding.
My brides and grooms are also very sensitive to the aesthetics of the images and especially to the meaning given to the photos. I wish to capture strong, unexpected, funny, tender or moving moments.
This desire to capture precious and especially unique moments, drives me deeply on each wedding. "
Sylvain's photos are timeless. Having photographed countless films with medium format and 35mm film cameras, Sylvain wishes to preserve this look which will not take a wrinkle with time.
By documenting on the spot, Sylvain brings intensity and power to the images which will be varied, lively, joyful and moving because they are not posed.
The third part of Sylvain's approach is based on a sense of aesthetics. The fashion touch and the sense of detail are present in his editorial photography for many brands. Highlighting each place and detail is essential to him.
All photos captured tell your story. They are custom made and personalized because each wedding is unique and represents who you are.
Over the years, Sylvain has won numerous international awards that value his documentary and artistic work in the eyes of professional documentary and live action photographers (Fearless, ISPWP, WPJA, This Is Reportage, Best World Wedding Photographer, WPS but also Magnolia Rouge or Belle Lumière).
Sylvain is also published on many international Fine Art blogs (Wedding Chicks, Magnolia Rouge, Belle Lumière, French Wedding Style, Helvetia Weddings...)
Sylvain is also passionate about travel and whenever he has the opportunity, he jumps on a plane with his medium format film camera to meet local people on the other side of the world.
Photography allows him to be close to the people and to enter their family sphere while being discreet and benevolent. These film photos, which are then developed and printed on paper, are the subject of numerous photographic exhibitions.
"By photographing with the heart, I wish to capture images that give meaning to your wedding. To be true, whole, by your side and entirely in the story of this unique day."
