Kind words from the Leks, the Groom-to-be about the Proposal session:

” I had the lucky and fortunate experience of using Thibaud during a surprise engagement proposal in Nice, south of France.

Due to some issues, I was running late and unable to find the location for our shoot. My photographer was so patient and kind, messaging me direct instructions how to get to his location and then being attentive during the photographic process. Proving the perfect combination of candid and posed pictures.
I would recommend his services to anyone I know, his skills are very well accomplished!
