"There is no word for emotion"
Victor Hugo

Boldly joyful, naturally candid, artistically elegant

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


"There is no word for emotion"
I'm an emotive 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 in all the world and make people happy...


"Elegance is an attitude"
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.


"Love is not about lasting, it is about moments and eternity..."
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.


"Live if this is your last day and learn if you live forever"
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 meaning 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, sailing and diving. I adore discovering new things and connecting new people. So, there is no country too far for me and no project too big.


Who Are you ?
My couples are deeply in love.
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 Fine Art photography and are aware that images are the only things that will remain after their wedding.
If you are that couple, 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 am aware of the luck I have 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 couples offer to me to helpless people. So I'm engaged in the Help Portrait movement created by Jeremy Cowart in 2008 and I'm happy to offer, every year, pictures to an association.
Last year, I was be proud to lead a beautiful project with "Petits frères des Pauvres" from Bordeaux, an association created in 1946 which helps, in all the world, old people not to be alone and give them support and tenderness.
