Maison Pestea


I’ve been a photographer for 13 years & documented hundreds of weddings and elopements in Italy, France & Europe. My job is to document your most precious memories, love & emotions to last a lifetime. I care a lot about my work and my couples. I’m always excited to grab my cameras and travel everywhere I’m lucky to go and capture new stories.

Maison Pestea is the real name of my family house in the south of France, in the green mountains in the heart of the Country Basque. I took the name of my home because I have to tell a little piece of my story to explain that choice of name. Telling stories is part of my life from my childhood. With a pen and a piece of paper, later with a computer. Then with a camera as a photographer. My story is about family roots, travel and destiny. I’m a french woman with an italian heart. I document life & love.

In four words, I can sum up what I believe : romance is still alive. This feeling of excitement and mistery. It doesn’t mean cheesy or awkward!!! Sometimes, it’s just a knowing glance, something so subtle that no one would pay attention. It’s the quite invisible link between two people. That’s why I love wedding pictures because they are pure emotions. They can make you laugh and cry all at the same time.

Destination weddings or romantic elopements : I love to capture emotions, feelings, moments and tiny details with the idea that these are your true memories. When you choose your photographer, you pick someone who will share an important part of your intimate story.

A fine art documentary approach : I try to capture something real from the couple. My style is a blend of portraiture and documentary-style shots. I work unobtrusively to capture authentic connections and delicate moments. It’s important for me to keep things simple, natural and real. I think that it’s always an incredible gift and a great responsibility to document a story for a few hours – as a honeymoon or an engagement – or a entire day.
