Born and raised amidst the scenic beauty of France, Timothee made a surprising leap, trading his homeland's enchanting landscapes for the bustling vibes of Chicago at the age of 18. An unexpected twist saw him venturing into the world of weddings right after college. And while most would've predicted a career in TV broadcasting for him, life had other plans. "I shot a few weddings after graduating college and it became a full-time job," he muses. Why, you wonder? Well, Timothee candidly admits, "Turns out I thrive in party environments."

Beyond the glitz and glamour of parties, Timothee cherishes the human connection in his profession. For him, the essence lies in making the couple's special day memorable. When asked about his approach, he elaborates, "I ask them what their priorities are and make sure I do what I can to help them experience the day how they want." He adds, "Ideally, I never want a wedding to feel like a photo shoot, but a fun party where they took a few photos." Now, isn't that a refreshing perspective?
