Meet Sylvain...



Thank you for taking the time to consider my work! I am an international wedding and commercial photographer.

I have been shooting professionally for 8 years now and have traveled the world documenting weddings and editorial assignments for some of the greatest clients.

Outside of my love for photography, I am an active CrossFitter, marathon runner, golfer, Starbucks drinker, wakeboarder, apple geek, San Francisco Giants fan, and much more, just ask!

I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to be able to do something that I am passionate about and absolutely love for a living! Read less

As a wedding planner / Coordinator for 30+ years in the Napa Valley, the comments from our couples have been great. Sylvain works closely with all of our brides and grooms to make sure their wedding day is special. He has a great connection with every couple that produces wonderful results. On the day of the wedding, he always goes beyond what we expect.

Wonderful! Artistic! Helpful! Talented! Sylvain is a great photographer who enjoys what he does. We had beautiful wedding pictures taken at Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales Florida. The pictures look great! He really knows his instrument and has a keen eye for capturing great pictures! Very happy with them and having a hard time to choose from so many beautiful photos for the album!

Sylvain was flexible, easy to work with and very laid back. He is always prompt and captured beautiful pics of us on the beach at sunset on our wedding day. We also did engagement pics on a rainy stormy night but they came out crisp, clear and had amazing back lighting. We highly recommend Sylvain for your wedding pics! Sylvain's work was also featured on many news sites such as Yahoo and Tampa Bay Times as our Epic Wedding Battle video went viral. Thank you Sylvain for helping us capture our unforgettable day!

Sylvain was wonderful to work with! He did the photography for our wedding in Napa last May. We have received so many complements on the quality of his work. Sylvain definitely made us feel comfortable and relaxed during the photoshoots which could have been an awkward situation, but was definitely not because of Sylvain's laid back demeanor and proffesionalism. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a high quality wedding photographer!

Words cannot express how happy my wife and I were with Sylvain. Next to marrying each other, hiring Sylvain was the single best decision we made. Sylvain has the unique ability to not only capture the moment but also bring out the personalities of his clients. On the most important day of our lives, Sylvain was able to immortalize the day and we are instantly brought back every time we look at our wedding photos. Napa Valley is an incredible backdrop but Sylvain was able to make it look magical and make us look like the two happiest people in the world.

I'd also be remiss if I didn't acknowledge Sylvain's creativity and ability to connect with his clients. The reason his final product is so impressive is because he takes the time up front to get to know each couple. Part of his overall wedding package is an engagement shoot. He uses the engagement shoot as an opportunity to get to know his clients and ensure that everyone is comfortable working with each other when the wedding rolls around. When we spoke to Sylvain, we told him we didn't want to do a traditional engagement shoot. My wife and I met skiing on Mt. Hood in Oregon and after hearing out story, Sylvain suggested we do our engagement shoot at Squaw Valley. That was exactly the outside of the box thinking we were looking for and the results were absolutely amazing. Again, memories we will have for the rest of our lives.

At the end of the day, we could not give a more ringing endorsement of Sylvain. After our Engagement and Wedding shoots we consider him more our friend then photographer from Disco Bay. Like I said, it was the best decision we made and it was worth every penny. If you are considering hiring Sylvain, I'd encourage you to look at our photos and feel free to contact us, I'd be more then willing to speak over the phone.
