Sebastien Bicard-Bay Area Wedding Photographer-3

Hey there, I'm Seb.

Why did I become a photographer and how Sebastien Bicard Photography started

Life was somewhat easy for me for quite a long time. When I was young, I built a special bond with my dad that would play a major role later. Life went on and I found myself in a stable place. Well paid job, a house, wife, kids, and friends. I thought I could not ask for more. Life was “easy”.

The early death of my dad opened my eyes: it only felt easy because I refused to be accountable for my choices. I was actually selfish and driven by my own person. It was the first time I decided to show vulnerability. This realization made me feel more at peace than anything before. Big changes happened after: I got divorced, I quit my job, I moved to a new country and the most profound change was to marry my wife, Tessa. My lobster.

And through it all, I finally found myself.

I don’t believe we need to change everything. In my case, being vulnerable fuels an incredible thirst to keep growing, taking risks everywhere I go, with anyone I meet. I’m in a place where photography is the best tool to help couples feel more comfortable showing vulnerability towards each other so they can see how their unique love story will lead them to a more meaningful life.

LET ME SHARE SOMETHING PERSONAL

My belief system

Different events shaped my life and taught me the following beliefs. They rule my personal and professional life. Here they are.

01

VULNERABILITY

I believe that vulnerability is the risk to take if we want to reach happiness and meaning in life.

02

SMILE

I believe in the power of smiling.

03

HONESTY

I believe that honesty is the most effective way to strengthen relationship.

04

SUCCESS

I believe that the definition of success is personal. It is not something you can always easily measure.

05

FEELINGS

I believe that feelings are part of our identity. Recognizing and accepting them is fundamental.

06

I AM ENOUGH

I believe I am a good person with tons of imperfections. Yet, I am unique and for that reason I am enough. So are you.

I was born and raised in Paris, France.

My first travel abroad was to Lebanon. My first trek was in Nepal. My wife and I backpacked for six months in Asia before moving to the USA. I moved to California permanently in 2016.

Traveling is part of my soul. After all this time meeting different cultures, I learned how to be a chameleon. This skill now serves me whether you get married in San Francisco, Paris or anywhere else. I speak different languages, the most useful one being non-verbal. Interacting without talking is a great way to connect with various people, friends, and family on a wedding day.

If you plan on getting married, eloping or having personal memories in places where you need someone with language skills and who connects with people, hit me up!

Hey, you said travel?
