Everytime I look at these childhood pictures, I am overwhelmed with emotion.
My parents and baby me. The bond between my little sister and I. Time flying by at birthdays. Family gatherings every summer with five generations and how lucky I am to have known my great-great grandmother (I'm the one pouting at the bottom left by the way!).
These pictures tell my story, like my pictures tell your story.
Marie Calfopoulos, wedding & family photographer in Provence
From rookie photographer...
Photography has always been a part of me...
I grew up between the lavender fields of southern France and the beaches of Brittany. When I was little, my grandparents got me a toy camera that I couldn't put down and getting older, my Dad, who was and still is into photography, offered me my first real camera. I fell in love with photography...
After passing a languages degree, I worked in a multimedia company on the French Riviera where I started professional photography and video editing.
I wanted to perfect my English and experience life in different country: I chose New York City. Being a Brooklynite for a couple years was an amazing adventure!

My love for travel took me to wonderful destinations such as Thailand, Italy, the Caribbean, Kenya and Tanzania, Greece, Canada, South Africa and more. I love meeting new people and discover fascinating cultures. Travelling is essential to my life and I want to explore and enrich myself as much as possible.
In 2012, I graduated from the New York Film Academy and moved to Paris, now fluent in English. I started my own business specializing in weddings, elopements, couple and family photography, capturing those lifelong memories with joyful, candid and authentic images.
In 2015, I got back to my Provence roots and I now share my time between Avignon and Paris.
I invest myself with passion into documenting your story with a special souvenir you'll cherish forever.

Little things that make me happy...
Chocolate, rock music, sunsets, going to the movies, fireplaces, rollercoasters, travelling, musicals & concerts, vanilla & raspberries, DIY and crafts, speaking English, the Disney universe and parks, dogs, the smell of mimosa and orange blossom, my nephews and my niece, "making myself pretty", rose gold stuff, flying on planes, amusement parks, baking and travel TV shows, scented candles, salted butter (my Brittany roots), family and friends dinners, lists and crossing things off them, my cup of coffee (that I never finish), my apartment, discovering new cultures and meeting people from all over the world, The Walking Dead, Grey's Anatomy, Game of Thrones, Friends and many other TV shows, making people happy, herbes of Provence and mediterranean cuisine, instagram, board games, Italy and Greece (I'm a quarter Greek and proud of my last name!), working on my Mac, being a tourist in my own town, singing along songs (completely out of tune but I don't care), massages after a long day of work...
