ABOUT

Photographiez Votre histoire ~ Photograph your story.

We are a Melbourne based photography collective specialising in weddings and portraiture. PVH was founded by french fashion photographer Stephanie Bailly in 2010, after her relocation to Melbourne from Paris.

We are a small collection of fashion, advertising and art photographers that have come together to produce beautiful, authentic and natural photography. Combining different creative and cultural backgrounds, each member shares a mutual passion for photography. We aim to deliver high quality imagery as well as a unique perspective and aesthetic to visual storytelling. We see your event as an opportunity for us to capture and celebrate a special moment in time.

When selecting other creatives to work with and alongside, Steph looks for style, attention to detail and most importantly sincerity.

So a warm bonjour from the PVH crew.  We look forward to the opportunity to document your story.

STEPHANIE BAILLY

Bonjour! my name is Stephanie, I grew up in Cannes (the french riviera). I moved to Paris after high school to follow my passion and studies in photography.

After photography school I worked as an assistant photographer at Daylight studios in Paris which allowed me to further my skills as a fashion and advertising photographer. During this time I was also modelling for Ford model agency in Paris which gave me an opportunity to travel and experience fashion photography from the other side of the camera which gave me a unique understanding of the whole process. Since becoming a full time Photographer i have worked in fashion, music, advertising, and have also produced artwork including curating 2 exhibitions in Paris.

I met my Australian husband in Paris, soon after we married in the City of Lights and  returned to his Australian homeland in 2009. I love Melbourne and it’s people and i am very happy to call it home. If i am not at a photo shoot i am having the most fantastic time with my 3 year old daughter. J”aime my croissants and cafe latte, french movies, sitting at Gerald’s bar with friends and travelling with my family and my old camera and polaroid. I also love giving back to my community by volunteering my time and photography skills in local charity projects.

I love to photograph weddings as I love capturing the whole story of the day and working with real people and real emotions. I also really like learning about different cultures and their  traditions and then photographing the way each family adapt these traditions to their special day. As every couple is truly unique it’s always a new story to tell, a new place to discover, the magic of different lighting, even the rain falling down can be something beautiful that makes the day even more special and never deja vu!

I believe my experience, background and my love of photography gives me that je ne sais quoi in my wedding photography.

My clients included French Glamour, Marie France, Madame Figaro, Wad, Tetu, Blender US, EMI Music France, Warner Music au, Technikart Japan, French Cosmopolitan, Ozmosis,Vice magazine, Ghanda, Dylan Kay, Good Sport, Dig Jeans, The Age magazine, Lee Jeans au, L’Obs, see more of my fashion work at www.stephaniebailly.com

EBONY FINCK

My name is Ebony Finck, I am a photographer and passionate traveller based in Melbourne Australia. I found photography in my early 20’s whilst skipping across the globe. Photography allows me to document my life and the loved ones around me, I’m now able to create little “return tickets back in time”. Since this discovery, the camera really hasn’t left my side. I’m utterly captivated by profound love and honesty and this is what I look to document, whether through my own art practice or whilst photographing a wedding.

I want to capture the unguarded moments, images that can not be constructed or fabricated. I love my pup Aphex, coffee, travel and that blue light just after sunset. Last year one of my photos was shown at the National Portrait Gallery in London – one tick off the long bucket list!
