It’s important that you find an experienced wedding photographer with whom you’re comfortable; they’re going to be a part of your special day and you’ll look back on their work for years to come!
Fortunately, we know some fantastic wedding photographers in or near the Dordogne region.
We can make introductions for you, or feel free to contact them directly (please mention that you found them through Château du Raysse!).
Pattie Fellowes Photography
Pattie is an award-winning international photographer based in Toulouse. She speaks English, Polish and a bit of French and German.
Her wedding photos have been awarded bronzes at International competitions and she has several photos published in magazines and blogs, including Vogue Italia and French Wedding Style.
“Each wedding, for me is, a fascinating adventure with amazing people. As a wedding photographer, I’m an observer. People and their stories are my biggest inspiration, and I think they’re the most important at a wedding. You choose who you want to share your big day with, and you will want to see these people as the memory of your day in the years to come. I love capturing emotions, interactions, details and light – all in an unobtrusive way – as your wedding day unfolds naturally.”

Simon Murray Photography
Simon is an English speaking photographer who has recently relocated to France with his young family.
“I would describe myself as a documentary wedding photographer, I aim to observe your wedding day as it unfolds, naturally and unobtrusively. I work very close to the action and try to blend in with the guests as much as possible.
“I work hard to make sure that your wedding photographs are ready as soon as possible without compromising on quality, Each photograph will be edited by myself and I aim to have your wedding photographs completed and ready within 3 weeks from your wedding date but more often than not it is much less.
“My style of photography is very natural and relaxed – I’ll tell the story of your wedding day by capturing all the emotions and silly moments, instead of making you pose awkwardly.”
Seiji & Mori Studio
“We are Clovis & Theeda, married photographers and passionate about the wonderful world of photography.
Our style is photojournalism, we want to catch your true emotions, your spontaneity, your complicity and we particularly love to work in natural light.
We love to work together in order to offer two different point of views, to cover more space on big events and to catch more moments during your day.”
Blue Lily Weddings
Marek is a London, UK and destination wedding photographer who has shot over 250 weddings.
“I’ve seen trends come and go, but one thing that never seems to change is my couples wish to document their day in a natural way, catching all those moments of connection, of laughter and tears that create it. And that is often the reason why we make a good match, as my style reflects exactly that. Showing true emotions and interactions between my couples and their family and friends. But, of course, as most people are not used to being in front of the camera I always give gentle guidance to make sure you will look your best.”
“I simply love shooting weddings and have fun doing it. Couples tend to pick up on that and we often laugh together. I like to get to know my couples before the wedding. The passions, the dislikes, the expectations and the vision. There is no wedding too small or too big, too near or too far.”
Corrina Tough Photography
Corrina moved from Australia to southwest France, where she is renovating a medieval house around her work as a published destination wedding, portrait and lifestyle photographer. Corrina has documented couples love stories for over 20 years.
“I offer natural, candid wedding photography, captured through a contemporary lens with honesty, beauty and style. Influenced by classic humanist photography and an affection for France and the people I photograph, I sensitively frame and preserve natural moments of your destination wedding and surrounding celebrations. From the intimacy of pre-wedding preparations and ceremonies, to capturing candid moments of joy and dynamism, my photography packages can be customised to complement your unique celebration.”
Jeff & Debz Photography
Jeff & Debz are English speaking photographers based in Aquitaine. Their fun style and decades of experience mean you will be in safe hands.
Prices start from 1200 euros and packages can be tailored to suit your needs.
“For me, photography is little to do with the things we see and everything to do with the way we see them. It’s all about observation; finding the extraordinary in what seems to be ordinary and then capturing every little bit of it.
“I LOVE taking pictures of people enjoying themselves but I also have a bit of an obsession with close-ups and I’m drawn, like a magpie, to light playing on glassware, the soft colouring of flowers and the tiny details.
“Providing people with wedding memories they will treasure forever is a privilege of which I will never grow tired.”
Simon Mark Whitten, founder of Firehorse Photography, has photographed and filmed over 700 weddings in 12 countries around the world. British born, but living for 5+ years full-time in France, Simon is one of a very small number of people worldwide who offers both photography AND video is one neat and seamless package.
“Low-key, minimally invasive, committed, multi-day coverage that works so well for destination weddings.
“You would probably describe your wedding as ‘fun, relaxed, family & friends’. You are not a slave to the latest fashion or fad. You won’t compromise, recognising this as a lifetime investment rather than a wedding day expense.
Sounds like you? Sounds very much like any one of my clients…”
Lisa Allen Photography
Lisa is an award-winning British photographer living in Toulouse, South West France.
“I’ve been capturing weddings in France and the USA for almost a decade. It’s hard to put into words how much weddings fulfil me as a creative person.
“I love every stage. Every moment I capture. Every person I meet. I love to immerse myself in the creativity and individualism of every wedding.
“Every wedding is unique. Every couple is celebrated. To be a great Photographer is to be a great communicator.
“I value the bond I make with all of my couples. I’m a ‘people person’, and easy to be around. and just like that….. the magic happens :)”.
