Top 100 Wedding Photographers
WPJA - 2013
France wedding photographer
My name is Philip Stephenson and I am a wedding photographer in France. Originally from England, I now live here with my wife and baby boy.
Wedding photography is my specialty. If I am not photographing weddings, I am doing something related to it... This could be anything from a surprise proposal in romantic Paris to a relaxed portrait session of a newly wedded couple on their honeymoon!
If I was to describe my style in just a few words they would be: Natural moments creatively captured.
Due to my location, many of the weddings (and photo sessions) I photograph are in Paris and Normandy area; though I am not exclusive to these locations. I regularly find myself in some wonderful places throughout France and on occasions travel to International destinations.
I am a proud member of the "Wedding Photojournalist Association", the "International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers", "Fearless Photographers" and the "Best of Wedding Photography". Due to their strict membership criteria, these associations are among the most highly respected in the industry.
Membership allows me to enter competitions where some of the worlds best wedding photographers compete against one another. Over the past few years my photography has won several of these international awards. In 2013 I was listed by the WPJA as one of the top 100 wedding photographers from around the world.
I am forever working to keep my photography fresh, to push my limits and bring my best to my clients.

Thanks for the amazing job! We love the photos! The day we got the photos, Caleb and I spent 3 hours looking at the them again and again. We first looked at them off our phones, then to a computer screen, and to an even bigger TV. Every time we see a photo, we notice something different, the tiny details and creative composition that make us appreciate more and more. We just couldn't stop smiling when we see the pictures. Of course we had to share the photos with our closest family and friends and they all love the fashion editorial-/movie-poster-like style. Definitely something different, something unexpected and something that Caleb & I would look again and again in the years to come. I think wedding planning has had a very good start so far, don't you agree? :) Thanks again,Erin & Caleb - 25/06/2014
