"We live in Western Canada, and last summer I was planning a surprise marriage proposal in Napa. After scouring the web, I fortunately landed on Christophe. He was great in helping me identify the perfect location to propose at, and providing useful tips to prepare an unknowing to-be fiancee get ready for the day. Christophe was hidden as he shot the actual proposal - she had no idea. The pictures are breathtaking and really capture the emotion of the moment. After the "clandestine" photos were over, we then proceeded to have our engagement photos taken. We both really enjoyed working with Christophe, and have incredible photos as a result. We highly recommend him."

"Christophe was such a pleasure to work with! My now fiance surprised me by hiring Christophe to photograph our engagement at a winery in Napa Valley. Christophe went well above any expectations with helping make the proposal just right. I have never had professional photos taken in this manner before so I was uncomfortable to say the least! Christophe made me feel so much better and helped me relax. Our pictures turned out so great and I am over the moon that we have this memory captured forever."

"I was looking for a photographer to capture my marriage proposal. I had an idea to try and get a candid photo to capture that perfect moment at a vineyard. All I can say is that Christophe was everything I was looking for. He was and continues to be a complete professional through our conversations and interactions. He assisted with reviewing the vineyard prior to our arrival and working with them to set up the best location for the shoot. Afterwards, we completed a nice hour long session to record all the details of our trip. His session was un-rushed and he is very easily accessible through communications either by email or phone. I would highly recommend Christophe for your photography needs."

"If you're looking for a great photographer Christophe is amazing! My fiance hired him to capture our entire engagement in Napa and the results were breathtaking. My marriage proposal was a complete surprise and I did not even know he was in the VINEYARD with us taking pictures while my fiance got down on one knee. After the proposal, Christophe took an entire hour to take some of the most beautiful photographs of us with beautiful landscapes of the vineyards and Napa valley trees. I am in LOVE with his work and I have receive many compliments on our pictures. If you are deciding on whether he is the right photographer for you... you will be more than glad you chose him as your photographer."

"Christophe is absolutely amazing! My fiancé hired him to take pictures of our marriage proposal. I had no idea he was there, and the pictures are incredible. He spent an extra 45min on a photo shoot. He gave us great direction and made sure to get the best shots! My fiancé explained what he wanted to do, and Christophe helped him choose the best location for the photos. Thank you, Christophe!"

"When I began preparing for my engagement, I knew I wanted that special moment to be captured so others could share in the excitement of our proposal. From the moment I first spoke with Christophe, he was a pleasure to work with. He was eager to learn about our relationship, the upcoming proposal, and identifying my desires on capturing the moment.
I had made plans to propose in Napa Valley, which is a four hour drive from where I was living in Bakersfield. Christophe knew I would not be able to visit the winery prior to the proposal; therefore, he took it upon himself to coordinate the details with the winery and even went visited the winery a week prior to the engagement. He did this in order to decide where would be the best location for that one true perfect shot at the exact moment I was scheduled to propose. Days before the proposal he called me and shared the images he had taken, so I knew exactly where I needed to be at the moment of the proposal and where he was going to be hiding.
The engagement was flawless! Due in large part to Christophe’s list of requests, such as standing in the right spot, talking to my now fiance, Claudia, for 1 minute providing Christophe ample time to focus his lens, and convincing Claudia to pull her hair back that morning to fully capture her facial expressions.
Christophe promised me he had done this MANY MANY times and we would not know he was around. My fiancé later asked me if he was hiding in a barrel because she had never seen him. Once the proposal was done (she said YES ), he guided us through multiple fun and creative poses. I couldn't tell who was having more fun; us, who had just gotten engaged or Christophe, who was changing lenses and practically rolling on the ground to get the right shot.
If you are looking for a passionate photographer and true artist, Christophe should be your first choice. I will forever be in his debt for telling our story through the lens of his camera."
