From Sylvie Gil:
French, mother of two, I have had the immense pleasure of photographing some of the most gorgeous weddings in California and beyond for more than a decade. I specialize in fine art photography and I am humbled to say that my work has been published in most major national wedding publications.
I absolutely love to capture all the wonderful moments and emotions that create a wedding and I put my heart and soul into each event to create unique memories. Ultimately, theses beautiful memories become heirlooms and are passed on from generations to generations. I can’t think of a greater responsibility.
When documenting weddings, my associate photographer and I use several cameras, medium format, 35 mm, film and digital. Film creates a beautiful color palette and an unmatched softness. It allows allows me to slow down and think about how I compose my shots, the light, the emotion. Digital is great for action photos. I beleive this is the ultimate solution to create beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.
I am based in California, but I am always excited to travel in the U.S and beyond to document a beautiful wedding.
“Sylvie Gil is a photographer who understands the nuances of a wedding day. Her artistry is in every frame and it is clear how much she enjoys the connection with her clients. Born and raised in the South of France, Sylvie’s love of nature, food, and people were influenced by her surroundings. Warm light through a kitchen window, vintage linens on the table, jars of homemade jam, family and laughter, all became part of understanding imagery and the actual feeling of the moment. Her 15 years of experience and personable nature allow her to document the day in a very relaxed way. She puts clients at ease in front of the camera, and it shows in her subject’s natural, candid expressions.”
“Named a top photographer by Martha Stewart in 2014, Sylvie travels worldwide with her camera. Her work had been featured in numerous publications and magazines such as Martha Stewart Weddings, California Wedding Day, Modern Luxury California Brides , San Francisco Bride, 7X7 Weddings, Well Wed , Here Comes the Guide , Today’s Bride , The Knot , The Wedding Guide and more.”
