(my friends call me Jules)
I’m a World Press Photo-winning photographer who documents destination weddings in Thailand, Vietnam and across Southeast Asia.
I love working with natural light, vibrant colors and fun, adventurous people.
Originally from Montreal, Canada, I’ve been working as a photographer in Southeast Asia for over 15 years. For half of that, I was a photojournalist based in Hanoi, Vietnam, and photographed an amazing variety of events and people, from major sports (the Beijing Olympics, The Australian Open) to heads of state (US presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton) and news coverage all over Asia.
I’ve been honored to win some of the biggest awards in photojournalism, including:
Somewhere along the line, I fell in love, started a family, moved from Vietnam to the Philippines – our home base from where we explore this amazing part of the world together.
Now instead of protests and politicians, I photograph destination weddings. Half of me sees as a photojournalist, looking for pictures that tell a story. The other half now sees as a father and husband, looking for pictures that make me feel.
Every wedding I shoot is a new adventure to explore these two halves – making pictures with both the head and the heart.
Making pictures that will both make you think, and make you feel.
