"There is no word for emotion"

Truth, Emotion, Elegance

Hi, I'm Véronique !
Thank you so much for being there and welcome into my world...

I'm an emotional Fine Art Wedding Photographer, based in South West France. As a former journalist, passionate about arts and writing where I draw most of my inspiration, I love capturing your most emotional stories and craft them into artistic, bright, timeless images to share for life. Being a film photographer means to accomplish two of my deeper passions : telling beautiful stories and make people happy...

My photography focuses on joyful, bright, candid and emotive images, full of artistic elegance and beautiful natural light.
I love so much catching the exceptional hidden in every day life and turning it into artistic, warm and elegant images.
Documenting your wedding is a balance between capturing editorial and stunning portraits, and documenting candid and emotional moments but also focuses on all the details and textures that will keep your beautiful day alive.


Behind the lens :
I'm a free-minded independent woman, deeply loving Human and being obsessed about making people to have a better life. Married to my other half, mum of two little black eyes boys who are the sun of my life, I deeply love life and liberty. Everything I do, is done with passion, with my heart and all my mind is about enjoying life and all that precious happiness moments it offers to me.
When I'm not photographing and travelling, I love writing, reading, playing the music (violin), sailing and diving. I adore discovering, learning new things and connecting with new people.


In front of the lens :
My couples are deeply in love, obviously... And they plan to get married in South France, Italy, Spain, Portugal or Greece.
They are modern, elegant, creative and fashion couples, planning an elegant and romantic wedding that sounds like them. They share my values of tolerance, respect and love of adventure, nature and beauty.
Above all, they value the elegant timelessness of film photography and are aware that images are the only things that will remain after their wedding.
If you are that couple, please, drop me a note and tell me your story and all details I have to know, with the form or simply by mail contact@veroniquechesnel.com

I can't wait to hear more about your story and get to know you !

I'm really lucky to live of my passion and I'm so grateful about that ...
It's important for me to give back a part of all the joy and happiness my brides and grooms offer to me to helpless people.
That is why I decided to engage myself in the Help Portrait movement created by Jeremy Cowart in 2008 and I'm happy to offer, every year, pictures to an association.
2018 : I was proud to lead a beautiful project with "Petits frères des Pauvres" from Bordeaux, an association created in 1946 that helps, in all the world, old people not to be alone and give them support and tenderness.
2019 : I offered a lifestyle session to a disabled little girl and her family
2020 : Project in progress...
