Photographiez Votre histoire ~ Photograph your story
Driven solely by the love of storytelling.
Stephanie | Owner & Photographer
Bonjour, my name is Steph. I am a professional photographer originally from the small village of Cannes on the French Riviera. I moved to Australia 11 years ago, now an Australian citizen and deeply established in Melbourne. I am a mum, a lover, and since a young age I have been passionate about travel and photography. I am lucky enough to live my passion.
After school, I made the move to Paris where I worked as an assistant photographer for the renowned Daylight Studios. Here I gained experience working for one of France’s most established photographic studios before starting my career as a professional Fashion/Art and Advertising photographer. During this time, I was also represented by the distinguished Ford modelling agency. This gave me the unique experience of being on the other side of the lens (so I know how you feel). My background in both Fashion/Art photography and modelling in Paris opened up a world of ‘reportage’ and Portraiture, it was here I found the passion for documenting real people and their stories.
I began ‘Photographiez Votre Histoire’ (…‘photograph your story’ in French) in 2013 after I arrived in Melbourne, combining my imaginative approach with wedding photography to create a style that is truly unique to PVH.
Documenting weddings and families satisfies my love for capturing honest, raw moments during rare and special occasions – for people from all backgrounds and cultures. It is through this passion of storytelling that I created PVH, and specialise in photographing weddings and family photography. My portrait sessions have been described as natural and honest. I avoid traditional studio posed photography and prefer to shoot your wedding or family in a candid and sincere way, ensuring everyone feels comfortable in the moment. Every story is unique, If I get the opportunity to capture yours, I promise you will feel very comfortable in front of my lens (oui!oui!). And we will have a lot of fun together in the process !
I prioritise quality over quantity, which is why I only take maximum of 30 weddings a year. When I started my wedding photography business I promised myself to never lose the excitement for photographing real people, which is why I will always be your photographer on the big day. I want to take care of my clients, make them feel safe and comfortable in their most vulnerable but special moments.
