Elodie Ruelleux-Dagorne

France

Elodie, a parisian-tunisian-sicilian-bretonne mix (yeah that’s quite a mouthful), living in Paris, but travelling all around for weddings. Growing up I had one passion: music, particularly the UK scene. It’s quite naturally that I moved to London aged 20, and couldn’t believe my luck when I found a job in the music industry. Over the years I got to meet and handle many fascinating characters, a job where human interaction was there again the most important factor for me. Or second most, right after all the free Champagne.

And then travels found me, and they never let me go: I am particularly fond of the arctic, its beauty and fragility, yet was also lucky to go to crazy places like Vanuatu or Botswana. Hence why I try and document the beauty of our planet when I can.
I don’t know if anything can me more beautiful than watching the northern lights dancing in the sky.

Being part of your special day is what I love the most about my job: it’s a privilege to take part into this very intimate moment that will add to your family history and to capture all those moments that you may not even see yourself. I also love capturing candids that you will miss on the day, because you will be busy elswhere, I love to feel the slight apprehension and anticipation the morning of the wedding, and to jump in the middle of the moshpit in the evening.

But most importantly I want to offer you YOUR memories, of YOUR day. Of course each photographer has their style, and their favourite situations, but for me it’s important that you also recognise your day, as you chose to live it, in the final gallery. I always aim at meeting up around a drink to discuss your forthcoming wedding (also because I’m biased to a glass of wine!) or do a skype call for people who are further: it’s important that characters match as I will be the closest thing you will have to you on your special day – getting along, laughing together will make your pictures that bit nicer. Also knowing you better helps me anticipate your reactions better too!

If this sounds like we could be a match, and you’re looking for a wedding photographer in Paris, Italy, or even so Lapland, then do get in touch! Can’t wait to hear from you!
