Portrait Photography

By Yvan Fournier

Introduction

Drawing on his extensive professional photographic experience, both here and abroad, as well as his Bachelor Degree in Photography, Yvan Fournier creates superbly crafted portrait photos unparalleled in their inspirational quality and uniqueness.

Your Portrait

Your wedding symbolises the union of two souls, the beginning of a romantic relationship, so it’s essential to capture the entire experience professionally with meticulous attention to every vital detail. It’s your special day and it will be treated as such, becoming your most treasured memory.

You will find Yvan’s style of photography quite unique. Ideally he prefers to get to know you both informally prior to your wedding day. Perhaps a few months before the day, Yvan will arrange a photo shoot for the two of you as part of the wedding package. This will help you to become familiar with his style, to trust his camera and to view the results in advance. You may even wish to use one of the photos for your invitations.

On the day his presence will be both unobtrusive and discrete, capturing the most private, loving moments in a most unexpected way. He has an eye for spontaneously creating a fresh image. When directing groups his special charm allows him to achieve incredible shots. Both young and old relate easily to his camera.

Colour; soft , vivid, faithful , cross process or black and white and with colour toning. PosProcessing are his specialty. This is where his creativity is clearly demonstrated. You will have wedding portraits that are truly unique, prints that will inspire generations, elicit admiration and be the envy of others. Yvan’s image-making is customised to your particular needs and the result is archival art prints you will enjoy for many years, a record for posterity upon which you can build a library of special memories.

Your wedding day should be carefree and relaxed, having confidence that your photographer will do a brilliant and professional job.

Have fun & let it unfold…

My photo shoot with Yvan was great. Being in nature was lovely and that gave time and space to become more connected with myself throughout the shoot. His kind nature, gentle encouragement and enthusiasm made the process fun and enjoyable.

Joe Figliano

Yvan is an extremely generous and gentle photographer, who for as long as I have known him, has always been able to capture the magic. Somehow he connects to the soul of the person, or to the energy of the space. It is a real joy to be photographed by Yvan. He helped me feel calm and comfortable. He is incredibly gifted and humble. Thank you Yvan.

Donna

Working with Yvan was a real pleasure. He was on time and had already scoped out a few locations. That meant we only needed 20mins of my time to capture several panoramic scenes we both loved. If you want a photographer to give you his full attention, get great results and remain respectful of your time, Yvan is your man.

Everingham Lloyd

I’ve been photographed by Yvan on a number of occasions and have seen a number of his collections of excellent photographs. I always find Yvan has an incredible way of making people feel really comfortable and natural in front of the camera and has an art for capturing people in their most natural and true depiction which makes for excellent and treasured photographs.

When I did a one on one shoot with Yvan I found his instructions and directions really helped me connect so we could capture the best photographs. His easy going, professional and friendly personality and approach made me feel comfortable & relaxed while in the usually uncomfortable position of being in front of a camera.

I really appreciated how he gave me space to find where I felt most comfortable and then also added his artists touch and encouraged me into the best positions and places to capture some of the best photographs I have ever seen of myself. I Highly recommend working with Yvan and having him as a photographer.

I want to thank you. Your pics are by far the most beautiful and comprehensive coverage of any event I’ve had at Touch the Earth.

Sahaj Dumpleton

Yvan is an amazing photographer! I feel at ease with him as he intuitively guides me through various poses and backdrops that tell a beautiful story through his lens. I truly feel seen and understood, both during the photo shoot as well as in the final photographs, and am grateful Yvan has so powerfully captured my soul’s essence! I’m excited to integrate my new photographs throughout my updated branding to share my energy, story and essence in a way that feels authentic and inspiring! Thank you Yvan! With Love & Gratitude.

I had the great honour of being photographed by Yvan. His clear instructions are designed to bring out the best in photos under any condition. As an avid photography myself, I have come to appreciate the depth of understanding Yvan has for photography. But most of all – he absolutely loves it, which makes for a fun and professional photoshoot.
