2. Emmanuel Bergère
He is by far my personal favorite, which is why I picked him for my upcoming wedding! I just love the way he captures the moments as they are, no posing, no directing. Just natural moments in life. Plain, raw emotions. His pictures are exquisite in their simplicity – they are mirrors into the souls of the people he captures. Perhaps it is the fact that photography has been in his family for four generations that enables Emmanuel to be able to see the true beauty of moments like weddings. His father was a photographer and film maker, his mother was a painter, while himself studied architecture and landscape – all this translates into truly amazing photographs that mix photojournalism, illustration and portrait on the fly. His photographs have an extraordinary au naturel feel to them and that, for me, made him a winner in my quest!
