We're Anita & Jean-Claude

French Riviera & Destination Photographers

Valensole Lavender Fields, Provence, France

Hi! We are so glad you’re here! We are Anita and Jean-Claude, a husband and wife photography duo based in the Cote d’Azur, France.



We met in 2011 when we were 18. After we got engaged in 2016, we hit the road full-time with the dream of chasing adventures and counting destinations. We wanted to spend our lives being happy, so we chased our dream by travelling and using our passion for photography to capture new places. However, over the last few years, we realised that happiness didn't lie in any of those destinations, but in the connections we have built with others and in all the small moments along the way.

That’s why we have found our way to a career that truly allows us to build connections with people. This happy accident of becoming photographers unfolded from our fierce pursuit of happiness and finding it right in front of us—in the stories we have been fortunate enough to be welcomed into and the people we’ve met.

This is the heart behind what we do. Time is fleeting and everything is changing, but we want to take a moment to tell your one-of-a-kind story through images that can capture the magic in everyday moments.

A Little About Us

Meet Anita, your lead photographer

I’m Anita Tissier. I was born and raised in O’ahu, Hawai’i but it’s been a long time since I left my little island.

I have loved taking photographs ever since my mom bought me my first disposable camera when I was 10. I fell in love with travelling when I was 19 years old, so when I turned 25, I made the move to rent out my home in Vancouver, BC, and travel full-time with Jean-Claude. Since then, my life has been a beautiful mess of love, laughter, and more adventures than I ever knew possible.

I am your lead photographer. Sometimes I can get a little too excited, but Jean-Claude, your secondary photographer, will balance me out—he’s the calming and reassuring one! We prioritize making sure you are both comfortable and having fun. I’ll cheer you on, give clear directions, help you loosen up and leave you feeling fulfilled. All you have to do is be your weird, vulnerable, imperfect self, and I’ll do the same.

Meet Jean-Claude, your secondary photographer

I'm Jean-Claude Tissier! I am a software developer by day and photographer by night or weekend or by whenever that girl above tells me!

I was born and raised in France and my family has always lived in the riviera. So if you happen to be visiting the Côte d'Azur, we would love to show you the magic of the French Riviera that we are fortunate enough to call home.

What We Do

We want to capture you and your picture-perfect moments—whether it’s solo, with your partner, or with your friends and family (fur babies included!). Authentic moments mean the most to us and we understand that not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera. That’s why we’ve worked hard to discover the best tricks to help cultivate real emotions and be sure you’re comfortable and having fun.


We are currently based in the French Riviera, but we do spend six months of the year on the road. If you’d like to meet us somewhere else in the world, then we have our bags packed and we can’t wait to explore a new place together!

Kind Words

"My boyfriend and I were visiting Nice and had our photos taken by Anita and it was fantastic!! They both have such amazing energy that the entire shoot just felt so comfortable and fun for me and my boyfriend. Anita and JC were both so professional during the shoot and had some great ideas for posing and locations. They truly made our trip to Nice memorable and I would highly recommend booking an appointment with them. The photos ended up being better than I could have imagined and now are a wonderful keepsake for me and my partner. Don’t think twice, just book them, you won’t regret it!!"
